Hello rational skecpticists

#1  Postby Sekundarliterat » Jan 05, 2013 2:31 pm

I was watching a documentary about creationists on youtube, got very disappointed in evolution (how could such a good thing 'make' creationists?), and then googled "rational skeptic". One can only imagine how glad I was to find such a big forum to the subject(s).
Flattering aside - hello everyone! I hope for good debates :)

Welcome!

There's lots of quite silly things we've ended up believing in as they've co-opted traits that have evolved for good reason. Seeing Jesus's face on toast, toilet bowls and dog's arses is a perfect example! :D

Have fun here!
