Skeptics' Circle 44


Skeptics' semicircle. Swedish newspaper man Hans Leander and his family in their Stockholm home, late 1920s.

Dear Reader, welcome to Salto sobrius and the 44th Skeptics' Circle! Salto is a blog about archaeology and skepticism and stuff, kept by a Swedish archaeologist. The Circle is a biweekly carnival for bloggers who apply critical thought to questionable stories. On Sunday 1 October I will be hosting the Carnival of the Godless as well, so you'll have to wait until then for entries skeptical about omnipotent entities in the stratosphere. (There will be a whole section on creationism.)

No hell below us, above us only sky. But today we're just going to be skeptical about earthbound issues. Well, planetary ones, to be exact. Here we go.
Aaand that was our carnival, as Steve Eley of Escape Pod is fond of saying. I'm passing the baton on to Karl at The Inoculated Mind, who will host the 45th Skeptics' Circle on 12 October. Until then, remember to do your qi gong exercises, and don't take off your tinfoil hat! The Truth is Out There, you know.

We most definitely did not get drunk while conducting our highly scientific test.

That came later.

This might be a bit tangential, but I've recently blogged about gender equity among crackpots:

Food and drink (well, what's left of it. RUNOLFR!) provided, too!

You are a good and proper host, Martin!

I finally got back to blogging, and hope you don't ming my adding a fragment of my own, far too late to be included here:

Delete this post if you feel it's inappropriate, of course.

Thanks, but I try not to be too out of date with my submissions. Nice break up into a couple seperate circles, by the way: not so intimidating a mass to get through!
