Articles about skeptics (and cynics)

New life in an old fight

February 16th, 2015

There are a number of popular cynics that condemn life after death and/or mediumship. One of them has a $1 million dollar challenge around it, which has been in place for years.

Personally, I don't give a hoot about proving anything to anybody, least of all to someone who is cynical to begin with. As far as I'm concerned, they can stand on their soap box and say it's fakery all day long.

This kind of fight is old, boring stuff to me, and it's been this way forever. But here's something new and interesting. There's actually someone in our corner who is willing to take the cynics on. He is matching them with a $1 million dollar challenge to rebut evidence of life after death.

Victor also wrote an article about the technical reasons that cynics are so stubborn. Not bad. I hadn't thought of them in quite that way before.

How about that?

By the way, in the text above, the usage of "cynic" is mine, not Victor's. He uses "close-minded skeptic". My working definition of the difference between a skeptic and a cynic is that a cynic has a closed mind, so for me at least, the term fits.

Lastly, thanks to the anonymous person who gave me the link to Victor's site as part of a survey I'm running. Much appreciated 🙂

The Skeptics Debate

Want to hash out the issues around whether mediumship is valid or not? Or if life after death really exists? Take the opportunity here. Skeptics are welcome, but Cynics are not. Understand that if you want to use the Christian bible, go ahead, but don't expect us to let you get away with quoting it and saying you're right just because it's in your book. You'll have to do much better than that. is a non-Christian site, so don't expect us to capitulate merely because a Christian book says such-and-such.

So bring your thinking mind with you, be civil and respectful of one another, and have fun!
