One point that struck me was the following, where Woolheater discusses the anger and hostility of one skeptic, which seemed to go beyond just disagreement:
My friend was perplexed by the anger displayed by someone who was obviously highly-educated, yet extremely unreasonable.
I’ve experienced this many times myself. (This weird anger has, in a couple of cases, gone so far as these kinds of so-called “skeptics” harassing me, “cyber stalking” me, threats, etc.)
It’s a highly interesting phenomena, this over the top hostility that often comes with discussing “fringe” topics.
