Skepticism will be in the house–soon!

Don’t forget, once again the time is fast approaching.

Soon yet another installment of the Skeptics’ Circle will be upon us. In fact, it’s less than a week away and due to land at the Med Journal Watch. Note that, because of the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., this time around the Circle will be appearing a day early, on Wednesday, November 21. Skeptical bloggers, there isn’t much time left for you to get your entries done and submitted. So head over to Med Journal Watch for instructions on how to submit your skeptical blogging, and get your entries to Christian by Tuesday.

Finally, if you’re a blogger and want to host an edition of the Skeptics’ Circle yourself, drop me a line. Check out the schedule and guidelines for hosting and drop me a line. I’ll get you on the schedule, assuming that your blog can survive a little test designed to detect credulous thinking unsuited to the Skeptics’ Circle. After all, a woo infiltration of the Skeptics’ Circle would be a serious problem that we’d like to avoid if at all possible.

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.
