Skeptics’ Circle #68
The 68th Skeptics’ Circle is up now over at Aardvarchaeology.
One of the posts that caught my eye was Greta Christina’s A Self-Referential Game of Twister: What Religion Looks Like From the Outside. Here’s just one excerpt:
Science has a built-in self-correcting mechanism; religion has the opposite, a built-in self-perpetuating mechanism that actively resists correction.
I also read an article about spiritualist camps over at the Bad Idea Blog, but what really caught my eye was a different article on that site. It turns out that the Virgin Mary appears on a garage door in Pennsylvania every evening!
If you bathe in the oil puddle on the garage floor, will all of your ailments be cured?
