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.)
Prometheus wants your skepticism!
Since I'm plugging skepticism today, I should take this time to remind everyone that on Thursday Prometheus is hosting the 26th Meeting of the Skeptics' Circle at A Photon in the Darkness, but he's not happy. At least not yet. Here it is, the weekend before he's scheduled to host, and he still needs more skepticism. After all, a guy who can write something like A Field Guide to Quackery and Pseudoscience won't be satisfied until he's scoured the entire skeptical blogosphere for the very best critical thinking and put together an Amazing Meeting of his own.
So give a skeptic a hand and send him your best skeptical blogging by Wednesday night!
