Promoting skepticism via chat apps

Postby Slooch » Thu Dec 31, 2015 5:12 pm

Hello, I am new to the message boards here, I am currently promoting skepticism via chat applications such as chatrulette, Skype, Android, and ps4...

If any one here has a ps4 account and likes to chat about these subjects, add me (slooch462)

What's a chat application?

How are you spreading skepticism via chat applications? Do you mean you log on to chat rooms and talk about science? Or just talking to random people about science?
Listening twice as much as you speak is a sign of wisdom.

That doesn't appear to be the prime reason for the existence of chatroulette. Dear me, no.

I can imagine how the conversation on Chatroulette goes:

"Greetings! Would you like to discuss skepticism today?"

"A/S/L? 12 inches."

"I am skeptical about that claim."

"Here. Let me show you."
