Subject: More on Skepticism

There is also this at my site:

For those who wonder where the site is aiming its arrows -- What I'm
working towards is that Nietzsche was wrong, it is not Christianity that
brought down great civilizations and peoples, but was and is something far
more fundamental and universal: the evil eye superstition. Christianity is
but one branch of this diseased tree. The evil eye superstition is
everywhere throughout the world and does not limit itself to any one
religion or dogma. It is the epitome of ressentiment and the spirit of
revenge. Here in the USA we practice it even more insidiously through laws
and moralities that are "rational" and well thought out, but it is
superstition nonetheless. What's more, it is a superstition with deep
psychological foundations that may never be overcome. So be it, it is
interesting nonetheless. Anyway, it is beneficial to compare the sections
we discussed on skepticism to the section linked above.

"Having resentment is like taking poison and waiting 
for the other person to die" -- Malachy McCourt.
