Hi, I’m a new user. My screen name is Nema Tode. This name isn’t especially significant—it’s just hard to decide on a pseudonym, so I chose Nema Tode because nematodes are fascinating creatures, and Nema is kind of a nice name. Brief info about me: I’ve become more and more interested in science and skepticism in the past few years. This is partly because I believe in learning from life experience, and life experience has proven that a lot of my ideology-based beliefs were incorrect. It’s also partly because of media such as Science Friday and online skeptic blogs, podcasts, and websites that have helped me figure out how to evaluate evidence, how to spot logical fallacies, and so on. Some the skeptic sources I enjoy are: The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe, Center for Inquiry, QuackCast and Mark Crislip’s other podcasts (I don’t know why I’m so fascinated with germs), and Skeptoid. I also like to read Science Based Medicine and the related blogs to get info. That’s all for now.
