J Randall Murphy

I've been enjoying the Skeptico podcasts and only just realized that there's a forum to go along with it! I hope that this is one of the more liberal minded ones out there, not necessarily in a political sense, but in the sense that participants and moderators are able to handle conflicting opinions about the issues.

The paranormal is a very contentious subject, and I've found that on both sides of the fence, people often have a hard time dealing with those who challenge opinions, biases, and agendas, even when it's done in a constructive way. So long as it doesn't get too personal, I'm okay with being challenged.

I don't see it as an attack. I see it as an opportunity to learn something new. So long as I don't find that I'm being accused of personally attacking others when what I'm actually doing is being analytical about claims and methods, then I'll know I came to the right place. With that said, I hope to have many friendly, if not spirited discussions.
