You know what skepticism is? Skepticism is doing yoga in your socks because it is cold and you didn’t start the fire soon enough. You know darned well it will be fine, you’ve even done it before when it was cold but it is against the rules.

Skepticism is driving without a seatbelt because it’s liberating and you are feeling it. You’re on it and you know in your bones you can steer around anything right now. You can remember when cars didn’t even have friggin’ seatbelts.

It’s leaving your shirt tail out or your shoelace untied for a bit just to see what happens. And because it’s not cool.

It’s farting in church and trying to look enraptured.

Skepticism is really the opposite of religion.
