This past Saturday we had a Drinking Skepchickally here in San Diego.Â We did a lot of discussing of serious topics: anti-vaxxers, The Amaz!ng Meeting, what to call skeptics (rationalists? critical thinkers? awesome-beyond-words?), and how you can’t unfry things.Â Also, unsurprisingly, we talked boobs.
I like these meet-ups because it feels like I could discuss any and all things with these like-minded folks. Converse the way it should be done, you know? But that’s surely untrue.
Even among one’s peeps, are there still topics that are off-limits for discussion? If so, where does one turn to get answers to these deep, dark questions in an increasingly irrational world?
