Respectful Insolence

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 Holford Watch on Thursday, November 8. Skeptical bloggers, there isn’t much time left for you to get your entries done and submitted.

Finally, if you’re a blogger and want to host an edition of the Skeptics’ Circle yourself, drop me a line. For some reason, the Circle doesn’t have as many hosts lined up as far into the future as I would like. Indeed, the wait to host is shorter than I can remember its ever being in the two years since I took the reins of this enterprise, less than three months. (There have been times, where the wait has been close to six months.) The bad news, of course, is that the schedule is not as set as I would like it. The good news, however, is that this presents an opportunity for those who may have thought about hosting but couldn’t commit to a date several months in the future. Now, I know there are new skeptical blogs out there (I just haven’t had a chance to drop a few links yet). Hosting your own Skeptics’ Circle is a great way to gain links and visibility. And if you’re an established skeptical or scientific blogger who’s done the Circle before, wasn’t it fun? Isn’t it about high time you did it again? 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.
