Hot on the heels of the Tangled Bank, the new Skeptics Circle is up! But don’t take my word for it.
I thought the shot at Alton Brown was a rather cheap one. All he said on the show was that Eng was his chiropractor. Whatever woo woo stuff Eng may be involved in beyond that has nothing to do with Brown. It was a real guilt by association job.
This exemplifies why I can’t subscribe to any of the skeptical periodicals, be they in print or on the net. Skepticism has become so intertwined with blanket-coverage atheism that you can’t read one without having the other rudely shoved down your throat. I don’t mind hearing a opposing view point, but I do object to the smug sense of superiority and blatant mockery their arguments are invariably accompanied by. And this freek-show-style presentation is no different.
WRT your review of the “1st on the moon”, have you seen the experiment that proves it’s not possible to land on the moon – via the skeptics’ circle – at http://humbugonline.blogspot.com/2006/07/spooked911-moon-landing-faked.html ?
