Occasionally people ask about useful guides to skepticism, a learn-it-at-your-own-pace course? This may be of interest to you! Dr Novella mentioned this latest guide on his blog recently, but I don’t know how many people are aware of the previously published course. I brought that one as soon as it came out, and I’ve now purchased the new one as well. If you’re looking for DVDs / audio on critical thinking, this is a useful resource. Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific… Read more

SORRY ABOUT ALL THE SHOUTING BUT THIS IS RATHER COOL! I hope I get to see one in Melbourne. I didn’t last time; someone took a snap of one with their phone and it really was surprisingly thrilling to know that they were zipping about during the time of the convention. Anyway. It’s funny how being online can get you down and grumpy – but a little thing like a banner can make hitting ‘refresh’ on your RSS feed worth… Read more

Thanks to Josh for this find. Read more

I sent this to someone recently over Skype, to cheer them up about MY not being cheered up. I loved hearing them laugh, and even though this video is not in English, you’ll get it. I can use some properly-applied humour at the moment, it’s been a little stressful. If you need some cheering up too? Enjoy. Read more

It’s by Brian Brushwood, a magician and fellow skeptic, who has done great work with his shows to promote an understanding of frauds and scams. “Scam School Book One’s media-rich format allows you to learn tricks with unprecedented depth, supported by hundreds of photos, over 40 videos,… Read more

I’m typing from the silent study / teaching room at the EDFAA library at UWA. Honestly, I am! I can’t believe it myself. I stood in line for about five minutes, hoping to talk to one of the librarians, just to say “WAHHHHH!!! YOU’RE BACK!!” Then I realised that she was wrestling with a student’s library print token (it’s been run over by a Large Hadron Collider, I think) that was screwing up her card-reader and thought that I’d go write this blogpost… Read more

It’s “One Of Those Days Where Darth Vader With Bagpipes On A Unicycle Seems A Sensible Way To Deal With The World”. So, have some reading or else. Something cheery first: Global Atheist Convention Gold Passes and Gala Dinner are sold out. You can, however, get Sunday passes and general seating. But I don’t know how long they’ll last either! On the heels of the interview I did which mentioned the forthcoming documentary “Jabbed” – CNN: Vaccine court finds no link… Read more

I neglected to mention this a few days ago! Since that time I’ve run up a partial transcript of both – so if you haven’t checked out these two interviews, they’re now available on the Token Skeptic podcast: Episode One Hundred And Eleven – On How Now You See Her – Gia Milinovich And Sonya Pemberton. What I found particularly interesting were the slightly different perspectives they had about television when it came to communicating about science and technology; how… Read more
