Name: Naturalists

Description: For those who recognise and accept science as a naturalistic methodology and see the supernatural as an explanation which is based on ignorance and counter-productive to scientific inquiry.

Charge: None.

Everyone join! :D

Just a note, people often misuse the word 'ignorance' as an insult. It's basically just a lack of knowlege. Everyone is to an extent ignorant of just about everything hence why we should not be content with unfalsifiable supernatural entities and continue being critical of everything while looking for falsifiable naturalistsic explanations for phenomena.

Eradicate all natural explanations before concluding supernatural ones.

Naturalist can also mean someone who studies nature. To avoid ambiguity, how about "Scientific naturalist" instead?

I would like to create one if I may.


Title: Skeptical Christians

Description: A person who believes in Jesus Christ as Unique and chosen by God for the salvation of mankind. However, who also recognizes that a great deal of inaccurate fables and information has appeared regarding both Christianity and spirituality as a whole over time and therefore, a careful examination of facts must be administered to ANY claim before accepting it as truth. Without careful examination, people will believe just about anything.

Cost: A mind open to possibilities, a prejudice free mentality, and willingness to accept that some beliefs are simply not founded on fact, but that others can not be separated from it.
It is a first class human tragedy that people of the earth who claim to believe in the message of Jesus, whom they describe as the Prince of Peace, show little of that belief in actual practice.
