Call me Ishmael.  I reside in Portland, Oregon, and found out about this place from a thread about alternate message boards on The SDMB(Straight Dope Message Board), where I have been posting regularly since before the turn of the century.  I am interested in good science, healthy skepticism and bad movies.

I can't remember if I ever introduced myself
I don't understand some things, but at least I know I don't know

Hello all,

I've been listening to the SGU for a few years but was driven to find a skeptical haven beyond the podcast due to a recent bubbling over of events and one too many facebook posts from that person who thinks random herbs will cure her cancer.

I'm 28F, I have a boring HR job, I do genealogy research as a hobby, and am also obsessed with watching figure skating - sadly there are no ice rinks near me, so I can't get into it myself.

I was raised Catholic and then had a few years of new age belief before I found the atheist, and then later the skeptical community and I am very happy I did. I don't have many religious friends, but almost all of them are into some type of woo which is nearly as frustrating!
