An atheo-skeptic look at blogs

The 84th Meeting of the Skeptics' Circle is up at Archaeoporn, presenting a wide scope of skeptical contributions in the fields of science, medicine, theism and atheism, woo, and the media. I am always fascinated by the similarity of thought flaws in quackery medicine and in religions.

The Carnival of the Godless #89 is hosted by Kelly at the Rational Response Squad, and I like very much what she says about me, and other contributors of this carnival, being a bad representative of atheism. Yes, well spoken, Kelly: We are no adepts of a religion, and we differ in many particular viewpoints. That's one of the reasons making this carnival so interesting. Many good posts here, but my favourite piece is Adrian's 101 Atheist Quotes, and if you ask me to quote one and only one of them, I take this one: “I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. Frank Lloyd Wright"

Thanks for the nice words about my entry! It's funny because I've just realised (looking back over the list of entries), but your piece on how atheists follow the 10 commandments was my favourite! Anyway, thanks for the trackback, I'm adding you to my feedreader :D

Thanks for the shout-out--these days it seems no matter what I say, it is misinterpreted or misconstrued in some way. Glad the point got across to somebody.
