What Is Skepticism, Anyway?
Michael Shermer, Huffington Post
As the publisher of Skeptic magazine I am often asked what I mean by skepticism, and if I'm skeptical of everything or if I actually believe anything. Skepticism is not a position that you stake out ahead of time and stick to no matter what.
Consider global warming: Are you a global warming skeptic? Or are you skeptical of the global warming skeptics?
