Instead of typing it over and over and over, I decided to just post a thread about it! We do *NOT* Only use 10% of our brain.

Do you have proof? a link to a site debunking the myth?
Something else i can read besides your claim?

I'd think with how skeptic you are, you would assume the same for everyone, and post more information than 'this isnt true'.  Surely anyone who posts 'this is true' regarding anything paranormal gets the 3rd degree

It doesn't require a large amount of the brain for mankinds inhumanity to man. We waste most of our intellect and brain power destroying rather than being creative.

Ditto.
Great, we had one of the world's greatest scientest in our country last century and we used him to build an ATOM BOMB.  Gee.....all that time and he could have been discovering other things.....shoot, I'm glad he at least had time to figure out E=MC squared before people used his genius for something else equally or potentially more destructive.

To suppose that earth is the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to believe that in an entire field sown with millet, only one grain will grow.  --Metrodorus of Chios, 4th century BCE

We adore chaos because we love to produce order.

Yup, thats true. We use more than 10%. But I don't see how we use 100%.

This world is filled of "What if's" and neither Believers or Skeptics have evidence for most of them.

In this topic, Believers do not have evidence that we use only 10% of our brain, and Skeptics do not have evidence that we use 100% of our brain.

Another point, it is so easy to believe in those web pages because they have explanations.

For example, it is easy for Believers to believe in this as it is for Skeptics to believe in Stellers links.

Hey hailo, arwen, how about you read the links instead of just dismissing them? Yeah, I guess you're gonna tell me PET and MRI scans are wrong? Theres evidence supporting the fact that we use more than 10% of our brain... theres no evidence supporting the 10% myth.

*sigh*

Figures. Its actually quite telling. It shows that you are just out to believe it, and not do any research on the subject.
