This website has persistently and repeatedly suspended me for posting and subsequently defending sincere answers which did not cave in to the sourcing requirements. I don't believe it is useful or skeptical, as it is relying on authority to determine accuracy of claims, something which Aristotlism shows is ineffective as a method of getting at truth. So no more participation from me.
I think that most persistent false beliefs that skeptics attack have a non-fictitious and non-magical scientifically demonstrable counterpart that must be isolated and described completely before the false belief will completely die. I also worry that skepticism is often abused in order to suppress good new ideas, as it suppressed heliocentrism in ancient times. I hope that the skepticism on this site will be true skepticism, and not political censorship.
