International Skeptics Day

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

International Skeptics Day is 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 Day is 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.
