Plugging Fellow Youths

It’s time to flex my plugging muscles and give you links to a few other youths out there on the Internet (because yes, I can understand sometimes the willingness to believe all teens are un-thinkers, but many of us do think, and we do exist).

First up, Kyle at ND MacGeek, a twelve-year-old who is going through his Catholic confirmation ceremony even though he has come to the conclusion that he doesn’t believe in a god. He’s publicly posting a record of what’s going on for us to see.

Twelve! I remember the time Phil Plait put “fifteen” in italics. Twelve!

What are you all doing here reading this? He’s even more impressive! If only all of us became freethinkers at around that age.

I just found out about the Young Australian Skeptics website through Bad Astronomy and I thought I might give it a plug here as well.

Young Australian Skeptics is a group blog for, well, young Australian skeptics (as if your psychic powers didn’t see that coming) and includes forums and a chat room. Young Australian Skeptics has a wide range of contributers including Naon Tiotami of Homologous Legs.

Kudos to them all for building up their Internet presences and showing the world that the thinking teenager is not a myth.

  1. What’s even better is that you, Kyle, and a lot of these other young skeptics aren’t just impressive for your age–your writing is good, period.

  2. Ty. 😀

    I always worry the only reason anybody reads what I write is cause I’m young. I strive to move beyond that and have simply good content.

    Thank you kindly 😀 You should contribute too! Everyone is welcome to sign up and write. Oh and we use the WordPress blog interface, so it’s really easy to post articles on the YAS!


  4. I wouldn’t say my writing is good… More like “interesting”.

    Cheers for the plug/s (in my case). You really should think of writing something for the site: we’ll overlook the fact that you’re not Australian for now. ;p

  5. The thinking teenager is NOT A LIE!

    The cake, however…

    You’re just fictional entities on the internet.
