The Great Accomplishments of Hired Skeptics

Shermerism: (noun) A delusional, pedantic belief system wherein all scientific wisdom is presumed already known. “Behold my marvelous Shermerism. I am so smart I know all science laws and paradigms and that includes future mathematical branches I prematurely criticize. As a gatekeeper in a secret brotherhood of illuminated miscreants I am the self-appointed judge of ultimate wisdom and falsehood. I play a devil's advocate just to be an asshole, and most people don’t really like me.”
