Seldom read Blogs,especially ones with walls of text.
I consider myself both a skeptic and a cynic.
A skeptic in the sense of leaving everything open to question. I demand evidence,rejecting the Neo Platonist notion that truth may be inferred from reason alone.
A cynic in the modern sense,of one who is jaded,distrustful of all forms of authority and genuinely misanthropic.
I refer to myself as a realist and certified reprobate. Those who know and love me refer to me as "a grumpy old man. (I even have a t shirt). If miffed with me,my sibs call me 'a miserable old cunt'
