Amy Bruni Has A Point…

I used to identify as part of “the skeptic movement” but after a lot of consideration I stopped doing so after being unable to agree with the actions many took in the name of “skepticism” which, for me, has always been more of a methodology than anything else.

Update: The Mirror who were first to report on Christine Hamlet’s photo of Slenderman used the wrong photograph. The photo used (that I then used here) was not the photo she claimed showed Slenderman, but was in fact a photo that she thought showed a Black Eyed Kid also said to haunt Cannock’s Chase.
