Coming soon!

The next Skeptic’s Circle (#85) will be hosted right here on Thursday, April 24th. Kindly send me your submissions by posting links in the Comments (preferably by Tuesday the 22nd).

Just in case you haven’t read it yet, the current edition is over at Achaeoporn (SFW despite curious name). There are lots of interesting goodies to feed your brain.

    My record of a conversation with a co-worker regarding vaccination and autism, interspersed with musings on the everyman’s often blind acceptance of the mercury militia’s claims:

    Oh! Pick me, pick me! :)

    Here’s one you can add to the Expelled theme — I can be the cool retro one:

    I discuss a new baseless fear among the right wing: depopulation.

    Just submitting a two-part piece I did on the rather odd relationship between orgone maven, WIlhelm Reich, and the FBI. Think of it as a love story.

    This one has been pretty popular of late.

    More of a science blog, but I’m a hard-core skeptic as well. Here’s a rebuttal to a corny creationist claim (one that actually needed no rebuttal, but that never stopped me).

    “I Guess That’s What They Mean By ‘Popular'”

    I guess that Popular Science Magazine doesn’t filter its ads much, nor do its advertisers count on readers being particularly science-savvy…

    Hi, me again because I just got aware of a very strange fact, skeptics on the other side, that is, religion, idealism, creationism, and theism:

    Hi there,
    I’ve not submitted to the circle for several months. Here is my attempt to get back into the game:

    Hi there,

    Here comes a little bit of skeptical thinking about a funky program predicting bloggers’ gender:

    Another one I’ve got that might be worth a link is about a word worth espousing, “beclown”, which came to my mind on hearing of P. Z. Myers expulsion from Expelled:

    Woomeisters frequently beclown themselves.

    I prove the moon landings weren’t faked using a computer simulation. (Although I did discover evidence of a goverment cover-up apropos of an alien moon base!):

    Going back to the very basic question of creation, I come to the conclusion that there is no need for it:

    Here is my hard hitting look into recent and upcoming advances in shaving technology:

    p.s. It’s actually me poking fun at the current lawsuit trying to put the Hadron collider on hold and at the inanity of the current trend in razors (i.e. increasing numbers of blades and fancy lubricating strips).

    I’ve returned to my obsession with the Hitler card:

    This is probably topical to the whole expelled thing.

    I have a couple of pieces that might be good for the Circle. Pick whichever one/ ones you like.

    Memories of a Good Science Education… and Worries About Bad Ones

    The Blasphemy of Creationism

    Atheism, Bad Luck, and the Comfort of Reason

    Thanks for hosting!

    There’s no need to take children to the Creation Museum in Kentucky for a “Biblically Correct” tour. Do what Bill Jack and Rusty Carter do: take the kids to a science museum and lie to them about all the exhibits.

    Why isn’t this child abuse?
