I have no idea what possessed Action Skeptics to use the Sham Wow guy to present this week’s entries, but it’s amusing. Check it! In particular I like ICBS everywhere on this thermography nonsense, and Living better skeptically on yet another cancer quack. It’s very upsetting when quack modalities defraud people of hard-earned money. It’s…
Please check out this week’s skeptics’ circle at Happy Jihad’s House of Pancakes. Of note, I liked Dr Austs’ post on the human toll of HIV/AIDS denialism, it is stirring. I also found the Skeptic’s field guide particularly interesting. I would have two suggestions. One would be to prioritize by frequency of use or rhetorical…
Just a quick rundown. Praxis #4, a surprisingly interesting carnival about academic life, is up at Martin’s place. Grand Rounds is up at Distractible Mind Tangled Bank is up at Ames’s place. And Skeptics’ Circle No. 100 is coming soon to Orac’s place! Stay tuned!
Grand Rounds is up at Rural Doctoring…get thee hence!

The new Tangled Bank is up over at The Beagle Project, and as usual, it’s a great read. Also, I want to give a quick shout-out to my internet buddy Ames who’s hit the blogosphere running, so to speak, with his first carnival post.
Andrea’s Buzzing about the latest skeptic’s circle. I’d point out in particular Blake Stacey’s discussion of the real expelled, scientists who challenge creationism. And I’d also recommend the Pap smear to Skepchic. It makes sense in context.
Check it out, the genesis of the Skeptics’ Circle. In particular I admire PalMD’s willingness to read JPANDS for the sake of the cause. Yes, it’s as bad as you thought.
