Skepticism: Freedom itself.

I have just finished reading this article by Anne Druyan at the Skeptical Inquirer website. I find often philosophically I am a Stoic, but Skepticism is what I often need large doses of. The tools of skepticism, especially questioning authority, are the basis of freedom. And freedom dictates we abandon anthropic religions and accept being part of something larger than any religious author or motivational speaker could ever conceive to charge you for. Larger than humanity will ever conceive. Freedom itself.
