Better late than never: The Skeptics’ Circle!

It may be a little later than usual, and my plug may be later than usual because of some truly annoying difficulties that I had with Movable Type tonight, but it’s finally here, I’ve finally plugged it, and it’s worth the wait.

Yes, the 51st Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle has been posted at See You at Enceladus.

Next up to host is Frank the Financially Savvy Atheist. (I really love that blog title, particularly the subline: Personal finance with a hint of blasphemy.) Frank will be hosting on Thursday, January 18. So start thinking of skeptical topics that you’d like to blog about and then submit them to Frank by January 17. And, as always, if you’re interested in hosting, drop me a line at [email protected] after, of course, consulting the schedule and guidelines and the guidelines for hosts.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
