Skepticism

Fellow Critically Thinking Youths

It’s time to flex my plugging muscles and give you links to a few other youths out there on the Internet (because yes, I can sometimes understand the willingness to believe all teens are un-thinkers, but many of us do think, and we do exist).

First up, Kyle at ND MacGeek, a twelve-year-old who is going through his Catholic Presbyterian (Kyle just e-mailed me telling me of the error) confirmation ceremony even though he has come to the conclusion that he doesn’t believe in a god. He’s publicly posting a record of what’s going on for us to see.

Twelve! I remember the time Phil Plait put “fifteen” in italics. Twelve!

I didn’t start my critical thinking too long after that, but that’s still pretty impressive! If only all of us became freethinking skeptics at around that age.

Also, I just found out about the Young Australian Skeptics website through Bad Astronomy and I thought I might give it a plug here as well.

Young Australian Skeptics is a group blog for, well, young Australian skeptics (as if your psychic powers didn’t see that coming) and includes forums and a chat room. Young Australian Skeptics has a wide range of contributers including Naon Tiotami of Homologous Legs.

Kudos to them all for building up their Internet presences and showing the world that the thinking teenager is not a myth.
