Hello to skeptics and non skeptics alike

#1  Postby ddewerg » Jan 07, 2013 3:04 pm

Well, I am referred to as ddewerg throughout the Internet, pronounced wergy by the by, and I am one hell of a hardcore skeptic for my age. I am 14, and am starting a skeptical society at my school at the commencement of the term, complications arise with the naming of the group due to the misconceptions about the word skeptic and their implications on the Christian nature of the school. I enjoy, and am reasonably good at debate, with a button of general knowledge to support a rebuttal for most things. I enjoy gaming, archery, reading, and dance, and love to learn about all science, but especially physics, chemistry, and human psychology. I will try and maintain an active stance on this forum, and I look forward to interacting with you guys!

G'Day from Brizvegas. I hope you enjoy your time here.

P.S. Come on over and say G'day to the other Aussies.

Sweet, it is tricky at first, but you will get the hang of it if you do it regularly!

I'm impressed.

Not very skeptical of me, but yes, I'm impressed. :cheers:
