Skepticism/critical thinking

The 104th Skeptics’ Circle: The Skepticism Review and Education Program Edition…..

Sorry I’m late announcing it, but better late than never.

Right on schedule, the 104th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle has arrived at Space City Skeptics. In fact, it’s the sort of thing that will test your mind and cleverness in that it’s…well, a test. But don’t worry. It’s not one of those nasty tests that you took in school and perhaps later in college. It’s a fun test. So go forth and enjoy.

And don’t forget to join us again two weeks hence, when the 105th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle will be held at It’s the Thought That Counts.

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.
