Some skeptical questions that are less than useful.
- Why should I do no harm?
- Why should I care what other people want?
- If it’s fun for me to make fun of fat people on the bus, why shouldn’t I go ahead and do that?
- If I can trick people into giving me all their money to “invest” why shouldn’t I do that?
- If I enjoy sex with children why shouldn’t I have it?
- If I’m a priest why shouldn’t I use that as a way to get access to children to have sex with?
- Why should I inconvenience myself to help someone else?
- Why should I worry about the working conditions in the factory where my inexpensive Tshirt was made?
- Why should I care about the problems of people in Bangladesh or Somalia?
There’s an infinite number of questions of that type. They’re not skeptical in the sense of taking a hard look at pseudoscience or woo or fairy tales, but they’re skeptical in the philosophical sense.
This is probably one reason organized skepticism can attract a lot of assholes. It doesn’t always happen, but it’s a hazard.
