The 95th Skeptics’ Circle – Skeptimedia

Taking the form of Nostradamus' The Very Lost Prophecies, the 95th edition of the Skeptics' Circle is now live over at the Skeptic's Dictionary, hosted by Skeptimedia.

Go now - revel in the prescience of those long lost quatrains - find that hidden meaning you've sought - discover the course of the future - and please, oh please - take it with a grain of salt.

My own post on using current (and old) news to teach the difference between science and pseudoscience and the post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

Excerpt from the 95th Skeptics' Circle:

The next verse wasn't quite so simple.

I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard.

His eyes sparkling with delight, Biochemicalsoul announced that this had to do with using the news to teach the post hoc fallacy. This verse, which seemed impenetrable only moments earlier, suddenly became obvious once the true meaning was revealed.
