Skeptical Scandals

I saw Michael Prescott link something I thought I'd pass along. Here's a post by Greg Taylor, concerning recent scandals involving some high-level skeptics (charges of rape, sexual harassment, etc.).

  1. As I said before and I'll say again, I consider myself a skeptic but I want nothing to do with organized skepticism. I was feeling pretty negative about it already, but then when I saw the reaction of so many "skeptics" and "critical "thinkers" towards the Zimmerman verdict, that was the icing on the cake. These people, who pride themselves on valuing evidence, refused to believe the evidence that clearly showed George Zimmerman was acting in self defense. These "skeptics" were totally irrational, and sadly, they represented organized "skepticism". Whether it's Christianity, Skepticism, or some other way of thinking, it's best to clean up your own house before you go out lecturing others. In fairness, this is just my opinion, but I remain pretty disgusted with organized "skepticism". So many "skeptics" are strangely not so skeptical when it comes to the dogmas of progressivism, feminism, and cultural marxism.
