Skepticism is often viewed as a negative philosophy, but I believe that when it is used appropriately
is is extremely positive. There are enough amazing things about the world we live in which are
supported by real facts, that we don't have to go believing things without good evidence. Have
a look in this section for a skeptical view of various topics. Skeptics are always looking for
supporting or competing facts so email OJB@mac.com if you have
anything to contribute to this section. Alternatively, add a comment using the discuss function.
