Skeptics’ Circle #76 is up at Aardvarchaeology. My piece in this circle: True or False? Helpful or Harmful? The Two Different Arguments About Religion. My favorite other pieces in this circle: Section the second: The Evil Dictators Argument by Whiskey Before Breakfast, on why the 20th century was not the bloodiest century in history — and why the regimes of Stalin and Mao, appalling as they were, don’t compare with crimes against humanity from previous centuries. And in a lighter vein, there’s Better Than Sylvia from Skeptico, summing up his “psychic” predictions for 2007… and comparing them to predictions made by actual self-proclaimed psychics.
If you’re a skeptical blogger and want to participate in the Skeptic’s Circle, here’s the guidelines, schedule, and submission info. Happy reading, and happy blogging!
