Hey there fellow skeptics! Just joined your forums so thought I'd introduce myself. Errmm...I live in Perth, enoy long walks on the beach and healthy debate. Just a few weeks ago I had no idea that there was any athiest network of any kind in Australia, so this is a great find :cool:
See you in the forums! (Fantasy islands looks especially, how shall I say, Interesting?)

Hi Twiz, welcome to the forums.
Most of our Fantasy Island 'Residents' don't seem to stick around for very long. I keep hoping that we will finally reach somebody and win them over, but it hasn't happened yet. At least not since I've been here. They all seem to have a mental block of some kind. :rolleyes:

Welcome to the forums :)
I might have to go away and have a think about the word skeptic. I seem to get hung up on words lately.
"Noun S: (n) skeptic, sceptic, doubter (someone who habitually doubts accepted beliefs) " ~http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=skeptic
* S: (n) doubt, uncertainty, incertitude, dubiety, doubtfulness, dubiousness (the state of being unsure of something)
* S: (n) doubt, dubiousness, doubtfulness, question (uncertainty about the truth or factuality or existence of something)" ~http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=doubt&sub=Search+WordNet&o2=&o0=1&o7=&o5=&o1=1&o6=&o4=&o3=&h=0
uncertainty and unsure - two words I don't connect with in this context.... I could go on.
Don't worry, I am not normally this anal about words and definitions... unless it is a trend!
Enjoy your stay :)
