seeder Posted March 6, 2014 #101 Share Posted March 6, 2014 Skeptics will always be skeptics. Was that not clear ? The point being, you can not debate with a skeptic due to their narrow mindedness, It is either their way or it's rubbish. Skeptics are narrow-minded? Man you got that the wrong way around. quote: "Skepticism or scepticism (see spelling differences) is generally any questioning attitude towards knowledge, facts, or opinions/beliefs stated as facts, or doubt regarding claims that are taken for granted elsewhere". Lets apply skepticism to the OP claims, (or any other topic too). A story gets posted, the believers get wedgies and trembles with sheer excitement at the story. The skeptic takes an interest in the same story...but wants another opinion. And will then do a bit of surfing to find possible explanations. Simple. rather than being an easily led and easily satisfied believer, the skeptic REALLY WANTS TO KNOW also, but has a few more processes to go thru before accepting something, on face value, (and on the bloody internet) Just like if one doctor told you you needed your leg amputated, youd want some more opinions Id expect. At the very least most people would look up their condition for themselves, rather than just accepting the loss of a leg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
