SKEPTICs : Modern Day "Flat Earthers"?
Please correct me if I'm wrong but I understand "Skeptics" as being all those who believe that ONLY That which has thus far been "proven", to be acceptable, to have relevance.
My understanding and view of "skeptics" organisations is that
1) they wish to hold on to the tried and true.
More than this, (this is my critisism of organisations such as this).
2).They wish to IMPOSE their beliefs on the public
. They wish to insist that we cling on to the Tried and True
3) They even go so far as to interfere in democratic processes by looking for shortcuts in influencing and imposing their collective views.
To my mind this equates with holding back mankinds progress.
.Yes I believe that "skeptics" are like those way back who were threatened by the idea of the earth as not being Flat
. 4)..And did all they could to prevent conflicting ideas from taking root!
