What does skepticism look like in a society? (13 responses)

sorry guys i didn't mean to spam you. i was being impatient so i just hit post comment over and over.

you know, i used to be extremely religious, to the point where i have tried to convert my parents to christianity. I thought that being religious would get me to heaven and that God would judge me for the deeds I've done, but I knew that I was only trying to find acceptance and answers. I have once believed the church to the point where I just couldn't let me be myself. Now that I have discovered this site, I am able to express my feelings freely and profusely. Because of sophomore year and the truth behind christianity, i decided to just leave this religion. I couldn't be a part of a religion that used to be so violent plus I have not received any answers from God to make my life better. The more I prayed, the worse things got. I prayed for being forgiving and acceptance by others, but then i realized that if i wanted to forgive, i would have to make myself and if I wanted acceptance, I would have to get rid of this hypocrisy. I am so glad. But when somebody prays for me, I get scared, and I feel like their prayers are more effective and persuasive and can actually persuade a deity to do harm in my life. Seriously, i just hope that i can extricate myself from all of this mumbojumbo. I hope no one here is a christian. If you are, please don't get offended.

Skepticism in a society would have the opposite influence of dogma. It would allow us to embrace new ideas, science and education. Encourage thoughtfulness and openess to the "other". Whether the "other" be human, animal, plant or the environment. It would renew our sanity, help us to imagine peace. And always keep us open to the wonders of life and the universe.
