Skeptical resources

I would like to compile a list of resources in South Africa on all things skeptical. Just post anything in this thread.

This is a great idea. This one isn’t in South African but I think it is a great read. Daniel Loxton’s What do I do next? (Leading skeptics discuss 105 different ways to promote science and advance skepticism) is a longer spin off project of his first article Where to we go from here?


Daniel Loxton is the Editor, Junior Skeptic magazine; staff writer, Skeptic magazine

thanks wandapec for a link to a great read. this passage from “Where do we go from here” just made my day

“My veterinarian sells homeopathic preparations with a straight face”


My cynical take on “where to from here” is to actively find all these woo woo things and publicly laugh and ridicule them. ;)My motto in life is shamelessly plagerised from nick cave, “people just ain’t no good”

Hi Everybody,

Although not SA, check it out.
I have just finished his ( Victor Stenger) book “Quantum Gods” A Very interesting tendency that I noticed is the spectrum of god worshippers: First,you get the fundamentalist creationist crowd. Secondly you get those who believe in evolution (Kenneth Miller-In Search of Darwin’s God) and a dedicated god. Thirdly,there are the heavily qualified scientists with a religious virus, admitting that god is not in the macro world - he is in the micro world (quantum mechanics). Funny how unsure they really are about the existence of a god; they cling, grasp and try just about everything new that comes from science’s discoveries to try and prove the existence of a creator/god. Victor Stenger, though,rips the carpet from under their feet!!


The School of Medicine of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio offers a medical search engine called “SUMSearch” for public use.


I maintain the African Science / Skeptical blogroll (which is where this forum’s slightly outdated blogroll comes from). The latest edition the blogroll is here.(As always please let me know of blogs not on the list).

Updated. :wink:
