Respectful Insolence

Here we go again. Time really flies when you’re having fun, and the Skeptics’ Circle is no exception. Hard as it is to believe after the last outstanding entry, there’s less than a week before the blogosphere is (hopefully) graced with another session of skepticism and critical thinking, just the antidote for all the rampant credulity out there. This time around, the host will be mcsquared at Relatively Science.. It just so happens that mcsquared resides in New Zealand; so the bulk of Skeptics’ Circle fans really will have to think “relatively” and remember that the time in New Zealand is 15 hours ahead of that of my home time zone, EDST. Given that, it’s a good idea for you to get your entries in early and according to mcsquared’s instructions. After all, you don’t want to be left out, do you? Of course not! If you’re a regular contributor, we look forward to more of your good work. If you’re a newbie, all we ask is that you peruse the guidelines for submissions before submitting.

And, of course, don’t forget that I’m always looking for hosts, be it experienced bloggers who’ve hosted before or especially new talent for whom all the link love that hosting the Circle inevitably engenders can be a real help in getting a blog noticed and building readership. Besides, it’s fun. If you think you have what it takes to do the Circle proud, peruse both the guidelines for hosts and the schedule (just updated a few days ago) and then drop me a line at oracknows@gmail.com. I’ll peruse your blog to make sure that you’re not a mole for Deepak Chopra or Adam Dreamhealer, and if you check out I’ll be happy to put you on the schedule.
