UK-Skeptics : Looking at issues from a factual perspective

Excerpt:
“Skepticism is an honest search for knowledge. It is an approach to claims akin to the scientific method. It is a powerful and positive method of inquiry which is used to evaluate claims and make decisions. It is used to search for the truth in matters and to make decisions that are based on logic, evidence and sound reasoning. Skepticism is based on a simple method: doubt and inquiry. The idea is to neither initially accept claims nor dismiss them; it’s about questioning them and testing them for validity. Only after inquiry does a skeptic take a stance on an issue.”

Not only for those in the medical faculty, this is about skepticism, in approaching all claims with a truly open-mind and examining it on its own merits before either accepting OR dismissing them. It’s a good site.
