I'm happy to be called a skeptic, a rationalist, a humanist and an atheist. I don't believe in gods, astrology, reincarnation, clairvoyancy or anything else that requires a paranormal explanation. I do believe in sound reasoning.
I think religion in particular is a negative force in the world. It prevents society from applying reason to the big issues of our time. On so many topics (war, abortion, euthanasia, genetic research, etc) our scientists and philosophers are forced to spend energy refuting religious arguments rather than having reasoned debates based on facts and knowledge.
This blog is my small contribution towards moving societal norms away from superstition and towards reason.
