Let’s make this Skeptics’ Circle…huge!

Time really flies, doesn’t it?

In fact, the next meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle will soon be upon us this Thursday. I’m anticipating that it will be…huge, as it’s being hosted by none other than The Huge Entity.

The Huge One has placed his contact information and submission guidelines here. More general submission guidelines, plus a handy list of past and present Circles, can be found here.

Finally, once again, I’d like to post a request for more hosts of the Skeptics’ Circle. I’ve had to do some minor rejiggering of the schedule recently due to the withdrawal of one of our planned hosts from the blogosphere, and that’s reminded me that more hosts are needed. If you’re interested and think you have what it takes (a desire to do it, an interest and talent for skepticism, and decent critical thinking skills), send me a note at [email protected] I’ve provided some handy additional guidelines for hosting here, and the schedule showing which dates are open can be found here.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
