My favorite other pieces in this Circle: No vaccine for arrogance by Cuttlefish (in verse, no less!); An Appeal to Skeptics… by Happy Jihad’s House of Pancakes, on scientific illiteracy in the humanities (my favorite quote: “Oh, it’s theory. It doesn’t have to correspond to the real world.”); and “It’s not a miracle” does not mean “I don’t care” by Ranting Daddy.
If you’re a skeptical blogger and want to participate in the Skeptic’s Circle, here’s the schedule and guidelines. Happy reading, and happy blogging!
