"Critical verbiage from Tim van Gelder". My blog. [29 Nov 06]
"Humbug! Online - a blog for
Wicked stuff. "Regular postings based on fallacies covered in our book
Humbug! ... Using a seamless combination of both passion and restraint, we
expose erroneous thinking with irony, whimsy, sarcasm, satire, caricature, "distortature"
and occasional breathtaking hypocrisy. Humbug! the book is a considered and
carefully written commentary on fallacies. Humbug! the blog is less considered,
more spontaneous and at times more outrageous. No poppy is too short to be
lopped." [16 Feb 06]

Notes and Comment
by Ophelia Benson
Blog associated with Butterflies
and Wheels, which Benson edits. "Our short and pithy observations on
the passing scene as it relates to the mission of Butterflies and Wheels.
Woolly-headed or razor-sharp comments in the media, anti-rationalist rhetoric in
books or magazines or overheard on the bus, it's all grist to our mill. And
sometimes we will hold forth on the basis of no inspiration at all beyond what
happens to occur to us." [11 Apr 04]
SCAM - Fighting
Spurious Complementary & Alternative Medicine by Kevin Paine [2 Nov 04]
You've got to be joking! by
"A look at the ridiculous, absurd and just plain laughable antics of the human
race. The only thing more absurd than the conspiracy theories, paranormal
abilities and miracles that people claim, is that others believe them. An
exercise in Critical Thinking." [2 Nov 04] [[appears to be defunct - Mar
"Your Suspicion is Our Mission." Spreading the gospel of critical thinking.
Primarily interested in separation of Church and State, but this blog covers
many other topics besides, and is unusually well written. The only thing
which gives me a bit of pause is that the author - a "David" - reveals so little
about himself. [11 Apr 04]
