I’ve been a subscriber and reader of Skeptical Inquirer for almost its entire existence. I consider myself a rational (scientific) skeptic, a true agnostic and identify as a secular humanist. Nearing 67, I’m a retired Professional Land Surveyor, husband of 39 years, father of two sons, and we have a grandson. oh, yeah… US citizen of the state of Ohio.
I’m familiar with forums associated with “progressive” and alternative sites and it will take me awhile to get used to how this site is organized. If you take note of the date of this posting, you’ll realize it is about 2 weeks into the coronavirus reaction/response here in the States. The stuff going around on many sites is so whacked, that I decided to finally avail myself of SI’s digital presence and see what the rational skeptical (hopefully) community was talking about. re some other forums: It’s like taking a course in human psychology you really didn’t want to take and you’re sure you’re going to fail.
