Yay! Skeptics' Circle number 50!!
And this one is dedicated to the memory of Carl Sagan, the closest person to a "patron saint" of skepticism. Except for maybe Harry Houdini.
Humbug! Online has done a fantastic job with this one.
Sagan died ten years ago, but his memory lives on through his excellent work.
(And I must make a mental note here to remember to buy Cosmos on DVD.)
Anyway, it's taken me a little while but I've finally read it and there is, as always, tonnes of reading for everyone.
The one that caught my attention this time round was Orac's excellent post on the infiltration of religion into medicine.
This scared the poo out of me. Orac has blogged in the past about the infiltration of alternative medicine into medicine and this is really the next logical (sadly) step.
I sometimes think that organised religion steals all its ideas from the alternative medicine industry, and it appears that medicine is copping it from all sides here.
Anyway, read those. They're great.
The rest are here.
