Respectful Insolence

Having just perused the 82nd Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle over at Happy Jihad’s House of Pancakes, I was left with one question? Was the Founder of the Circle, the not late but still lamented St. Nate (mainly because he left the blogosphere and took his blog down) God? Is Orac his son? And what is the significance of all this prophecy and religious imagery?

It’s all so confusing.

The only way to find out is to check it out. The kid’s got promise.

Next up is an experienced host of the Skeptics’ Circle, Mike over at Mike’s Weekly Skeptic Rant (and, believe me, the title of the blog is accurate, except that it’s more than once a week), who will be taking the reins for the Circle that is set to land on March 27. So send him some examples of your best skeptical blogging, and join us then. The prophecy says that you will come, after all, and you know what happens to those who try to thwart a divine prophecy.

Finally, if you–yes, you!–are interested in trying your hand at hosting one of these puppies, peruse the schedule and guidelines, plus the guidelines for hosts, and if you’re still interested (and who wouldn’t be?) drop me a line at oracknows@gmail.com. Your site will be subjected to a rigorous screening process consisting of me looking it over to make sure you’re not a woo-meister trying to put one over on us skeptics, after which I’ll get you on the schedule. You won’t regret it, whether you’ve done it before or are a newbie.
