Somehow I've got myself where I'm working on three massive posts - one of which will appear on Skeptic North early next week & I may cross-post here. But whew! Are these ever throwing me off my new current goal of posting once a week. There has simply been too much research required. So instead, I end up posting much smaller token posts...
But this entry is more than the average token post...
It's time to add another name to the Asshole Skeptic Honour Roll.
I'm not sure what exactly happened, but an old Skepticality Episode interview from 2007 appeared in my iTunes queue today - perhaps it was re-posted or... well who knows. What appeared today was the un-cut interview (episode 53a) that Swoopy did with the Rational Response Squad. I recall the original episode (Episode 53), but that was from back before my views began to gel regarding the spectrum of ways which skeptics need to present themselves. In the interview, they discuss very similar notions to what I suggest (between the 10 & 20 minute marks approximately).
The Rational Response Squad has been on my radar from some time (probably since I first heard the edited version of the interview) but I guess I've got too much of my head up my ass to have really noticed that we are not only singing the same tune, but are carrying the same harmonic line.
Anyhow... hooray for the RRS and welcome to the 5th Asshole Skeptic Honour Roll inductee.
