Hello, everyone. I started thinking of myself as a skeptic back in '05/'06 when I was trying to escape the intense Pentecostal sect I grew up in, and a support forum for ex-Pentecostals had a section for humanists, freethinkers, and skeptics. I didn't know what the first two were, but they sounded like good idea. I got REALLY into it at the time, listening to three or four podcasts, posting on several forums (SGU, InternetInfidels, RDF), that sort of thing, but college took over. I've remained a skeptic/freethinker, but not one who embraces it as my identity. It's just a tool for keeping my mind clear. I have been missing the social side of skepticism, though, poring over things, and decided to see if there were any good forums.
