Welcome to the Skeptic Review!

Hi, my name is Ross. I was raised in a Christian household and was a true believer for many years, both active and outspoken in my community. At the age of 21 (three years ago at the time of this writing), after much studying and contemplation, I came to the realization that the faith of my upbringing was unjustified. My world view now is that of a Skeptic; one who has high standards of evidence and is willing to re-evaluate first principles and previous assumptions in perpetual pursuit of truth.

Still, my interest in the world of faith goes on unabated. I attend church regularly, read the Bible closely, converse with my believing friends, and participate in active skepticism as a paranormal investigator and member of the Center for Inquiry and The Skeptics Society.

I would like to use this blog as a forum for my own thoughts, but also to post reviews, links, and news items related to skepticism, science and religion. This includes discussions of scientific discoveries, religious studies, the psychology of belief, pseudoscience, supernatural claims, philosophy, and political discourse. I hope that others who share my interests will find this blog a useful place to keep up with what's going on in the worlds of belief and disbelief.

Cognite tute!
