Skeptics' Day- January 13

Skeptics' Day is dedicated to people who doubt practically anything that is accepted as a self-evident fact by most people. The earth, is it really round? How can we be sure that the sun will rise tomorrow? Is the sky really blue? If you are one of those people who mistrust whatever others tell you, always demand sound evidence and suspect that your leg is being pulled even if proof is presented, Skeptics' Day is your day.

Skeptics' Day is observed annually on three dates: on January 13, on October 13 and on the first Friday that falls on the 13th day of the month. There is a prevalent superstition that Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck, but skeptics naturally regard such a belief as dubious. That's why this day is their day.

Skeptics have full right to a special day in their honor, for after all how could human knowledge and spiritual values have developed without critical thinking and judgment, based on skepticism?

If you are a skeptic, you probably won't believe that there is a plethora of organizations dedicated to people like you. Well, there are, international, national, local, just name it. But don't take our word for it, maybe the following link will convince you: http://www.freeinquiry.com/skeptic/organizations/ .
