Science: So, What's With The Cape?
often battle-hardened by years of living in a world gone mad with magical thinking and spurious logic;
frequently alone in the fight against codified irrationality;
forced to search far and wide for another candle in the darkness, hoping that one day enough candles together can create the flames of a new renaissance;
sometimes, even these self-assured, strong willed few need a hero.
Presenting the 47th edition of the Skeptics' Circle!
Yes, that's right: it's so big it couldn't fit in the little space I've got available to me here, so the Circle has been forced to relocate to another dimension. Just follow the link above, and you should find it. No worries, eh?
If the thought of leaving this plane disturbes you (and it shouldn't if you've read the last edition!), then here's a list of who's been generous enough to contribute, and some easier-to-reach links:
Tom Nelson at Ivory-Bill Skeptic
Shalini at Scientia Natura
Lambic at Be Lambic or Green
BigHeathenMike at Mike's Weekly Skeptic Rant
Barry Leiba at Staring at Empty Pages
Bryan Gillis at Infophilia
EoR at The Second Sight
Akusai at Action Skeptics (Now there's a good name for this edition!)
Julien at Odd Scoop
Carl Feagans at Hot Cup of Joe
Martin at Salto Sobrius
The Maiden at Hell's Handmaiden
Orac at Respectful Insolence
PLittle at Aurora Walking Vacation
Bronze Dog at Rockstars' Ramblings
PZ Myers at Pharyngula
And as a special guest, Laura Galloway from the TEDTalks brings a Michael Shermer presentation to our attention.
There were a few later additions that I simply couldn't fit in, but are still worth reading:
Jon Swift has a sociological submission,
Neural Gourmet asks a simple question,
Abel Pharmboy wonders how easy 100 bottles of wine a day would go down.
And that brings this edition of the Circle to a close! Any comments or complaints about how your post was presented, let me know.
Next up is decorabilia (wear shades until your sense of taste adapts to the ties... Those hideous, hideous ties...), and bear in mind that it will be published on WEDNESDAY the 22nd instead of the usual Thursday.
