My husband is not a skeptic.Â We’ve decided put me in charge of thinking and researching for the family (and in return, he does the laundry).
He goes to all the Drinking Skepchickally events with me, and he understands the basics – and what he is unsure of, he usually asks.
But he’s not interested in getting gung-ho about critical thinking. He thinks the skeptical community is, as a whole, pedantic curmudgeons. The skeptics at the meet-ups are pretty laid back and fun, but he wonders if these guys are the exception to the rule. He wonders if most skeptics even know how to have fun. I wonder if his impression is the way most people view us.
Do you think skeptics, as a whole, come across as arrogant or unapproachable? What can we do to change that image?
