Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
Calling all skeptics!
Pat Hayes at Red State Rabble is hosting the 16th Meeting of the Skeptics' Circle next Thursday, September 1. Get entries with your best skeptical blogging to him at email@example.com by Wednesday night! And, while you're at it, check out the graphics and posters on his sidebar that show the true scientific "value" of "intelligent design" creationism!
As always, I'm still looking for hosts for the Skeptics' Circle. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in hosting a meeting!
