Writer's Block: International Skeptics Day

What are you skeptical about? (religion, ghosts, Toddlers and Tiaras, etc.)

Just about everything related to religion or the supernatural.

This may come as a surprise to those who knew me before about two years ago, when I was a lazy Buddhist, or ten or so years ago, when I was a practicing Wiccan. I still appreciate the philosophy of both Buddhism and Wicca, but I no longer ascribe to either of them any sort of supernatural power or connection.

I find it so fascinating that our culture has matured into one where we "outgrow" the supernatural or superstitions, whereas, for hundreds of years prior, it was customary to believe both in the laws of science and superstition.

I think that has a lot to do with the increasing rigor of scientific investigation. It's only fairly recently that we've come up with the idea that if something has no disproof conditions, it probably isn't true.
