October 13 is National Skeptics Day

International Skeptics Day      

      When : January 13th, or October 13th or first Friday the 13th of the year      

International Skeptics Dayis the perfect day for you...the "doubting      Thomas".      

      Perhaps the earth isn't really round!? Maybe, the sky isn't truely blue!?      Does he(she) really love me!? ........These are the words and questions of      the classical skeptic.      

       By definition, a skeptic is a person who questions or doubts facts      and theories. He, or she, is a mis-believer. A skeptic does not accept the      "Given". If you are inclined to doubt things that you see or hear, then       International Skeptics Dayis for you.      

      If you practice a little, I'm sure we can make a good skeptic out of you.      Go ahead, give it a try. And, what better day to practice skepticism, than       International Skeptics Day?      

Origin of International Skeptics Day:      

      We suspect that a real skeptic created this day. And, they did so by first      creating doubt about the date to celebrate this special day. We found three      dates: January 13th, October 13th, and the first Friday of the year. While      Friday the 13th sounds intriguing, we have our doubts..........      

      We encourage you to celebrate skeptics and skeptical behavior on all three      dates!      

      There is some reference to this as an "International" day. True, there are      skeptics organizations all over the world. However, we found no documentation      of this day being celebrated anywhere outside of the U.S.
