    Why should I be skeptical? Without a little more research, I'm not necessarily convinced that's the best approach.

    Is an informed skeptic best for metal?

    you can bet with reasonable certainty anyone who self-identifies as a "skeptic" in fact believes some pretty whacked out stuff.

    I ask because, well, I consider myself a skeptic in regards to a few things. I wouldnt say that me beliefs are all that whacked out... maybe just a little.

    maybe. i'm basing this on personal experience, of course... people who bang on about being skeptics seem to be a breeding ground for conspiracy theories, ranging from unlikely to completely bonkers.

    it's a bit like someone telling you they're charming. if it's true, they won't need to say it.

    It's better than being an uninformed optimist. :smug:
