Hello. Heard about this cool site from the spiritlove forum http://spiritlove.freeforums.org

Some of the skeptics on there thought this might be a "joke site" because of the name "Wu" - as in "woo" :P

Is that name for real, or .... ?

Whoohoo! Whew! Whoa! Skeptics think this might be a joke site? It is certainly not at all a 'joke site'.

yeah
no offense to wu
but i also thought it was a funny coincidence
althought it might not be according to Richard Wiseman in quirkology..
he has this study where people with ¨wood¨and stuff like that end up more likely being a carpenter
and stuff... that study is highly controversial

but it was funny that Wu likes woo
(or what skeptics referes as woo) for me
the best example of woo would be homeopathy
but wu isnt that interested in homeopathy

Yeah Wu is my real last name. You want proof? lol Here is a scanned copy of my passport: (See below, use the scroll bar)

But if you had some experience with Chinese or Taiwanese people, you'd know that Wu is a common last name. There was a Wu dynasty in China long ago.

If you look at the arguments on the home page, you will see that this site is serious and makes serious intellectual arguments.

PS - Oops I forgot to black out my passport number. lol Here it is again with the passport number blacked out.

* I've removed the attachment, cause maybe it's not such a great idea to show your passport in a public forum :)

lol - I believe you Scepcop! It's the arguments on the home page that brought me here.
Still reading through all the threads - and liking [much of] what I'm reading.
