Less Wrong – On Learning Difficult Things.  This site was recommended to me by Valueprax and is a site I have learned from since then.  I like to consider myself a pretty bright guy but the people who post on this site are at a completely higher level of smart.  Some of the topics and discussions (called sequences) on the main site include: Reductionism, ethics of artificial intelligence and the singularity, evolution, the philosophy of zombies (not the zombies you are thinking about), self-deception, rationality, quantum physics, etc.  If you like to think, read, learn, and you have an open mind this site is absolutely amazing.
