You know you’re in trouble when

You start visiting sites like “The Skeptical Enquirer

“Skepticism ultimately leads to knowledge…which leads to effective action…which leads to success…which leads to optimism concerning one’s ability to deal with the world. It is faith, not skepticism, that leads to a childish reliance upon unproven notions…which leads to ineffective action…which leads to failure…and, ultimately to pessimism, cynicism, and bitterness.”

Skeptical Enquirer

In order to redress this problem, we need look no further than Master Yoda.

Yoda: How feel you?
Anakin: Cold, sir.
Yoda: Afraid are you?
Anakin: No, sir.
Yoda: See through you we can.
Mace Windu: Be mindful of your feelings.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Your thoughts dwell on your mother.
Anakin: I miss her.
Yoda: Afraid to lose her I think, hmm?
Anakin: What has that got to do with anything?
Yoda: Everything! Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.
