Alright, with one week left to go until I host the 45th Skeptic’s Circle, I need your skeptical blogging samples, and I need them fast!
I have just decided how I’m going to present my version of the Circle, and its going to take a little bit more time to prepare this one than the typical skeptical carnival. I’ll need everyone’s submissions by noon PST or 9 AM EST on Wednesday the 11th of October. (Last-minute submissions are not going to work with this presentation.) Send them to science AT inoculatedmind DOT com.
Some guidelines and ideas for submissions. I am particularly interested in your thoughts on the image of skepticism, or how to improve it. I’ve heard too many people deride others for being skeptics. I’m also interested in hearing about people who mis-use the label “skeptic” to make it sound like their being thoughful, when they are just deniers whose opinions will never change, which, as you all know, is not what skepticism is about.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to hammer out the finest skeptical blog post or dig through your blogs for something that didn’t get the attention it deserves. Then, email me the links to your blog and submission at science AT inoculatedmind DOT com before the specified time. You will then receive special instructions that are to remain secret and must be carried out immediately.
The upcoming style of presentation will be the first of its kind. Skepticism is natural, but the only way to find out what the format will be before it is posted, ironically, is to submit yourself to the circle right away. This post will self-destruct.
