Skepticism Around the Blogosphere

Skepticism Around the Blogosphere August 23, 2011

I began this post wanting to share the news that the forger of the lead codices has admitted that they are fakes – but David Elkington is claiming that his are real. See Steve Caruso’sJoel Watts’Jim Davila’s and Tom Verenna’s posts on the subject for all the details.

Elsewhere in the skeptical blogosphere, Joe Felsenstein points out that criticisms of Dembski’s No Free Lunch continue to be ignored by proponents of Intelligent Design.

John Wilson emphasizes that no one takes the Bible literally (HT Danut Manastireanu).

Arni Zachariassen explains why Christianity goes on the internet to die.

Jim West shared James Watts’ article on whether the narrator in Job is unreliable (and also told Ken Ham to shut up!)

Finally, a piece in today’s New York Times focuses on why eyewitnesses are unreliable.
