Skepticism, noun, the philosophical doctrine that the truth
of all things must be questioned according to the best principles of science, logic, and philosophy.The result of this process of questioning is that each topic is given the degree of confidence that it

others quite unsuitable.Many of the articles on this family of websites
are designed to reduce the disabuse error. The articles listed below were selected for interest, style, and importance.

reader in the art of skeptical thinking, namely, works on science, philosophy, and logic.Others sites also serve an educational purpose, building a foundation of knowledge.It is through knowledge and reason that we become skeptics concerning certain beliefs
of others.There are collections of articles and literary works including some

The Creationist's Failed
Examples Against Evolution is another example of concerned scientists setting the record straight (go to my Medical
and Quackery site for more examples).There should be no need for this, for
by answering their charges it gives them a respectability they dont merit.However,
because so many American believe in the creation myth, there are also many who have, unlike them, not abrogated the title
of rational and truly want to know what is the scientific reply.For them I publish
this article from the June issue 2002 of Scientific American, one of the 3 best science journals in the world (the other 2
being Nature and Science).
The Third article, Quantum
Quackery, is by a physicists who has labored long to rebut the abuse of physics in the name of religion and spiritualism.The science of physics does not support a spiritual realm.Professor Strengers other article published by me shows that the constants in physics are not so balanced
as to prove show that a watchmaker was at work (the other, click on to Enlightenment).

who received the McArthur award for Genus, has properly translated the ancient French of Nostradamus so as to reveal

dualism by the degree is stress put upon the spiritual
dimension, especially by those who hold to New Age
Beliefs. The dualist is passive and philosophical, the
spiritualist is out to convince others. This website is a
rebuttal of their abuses of physical science, medical
science, and philosophy.
