• From the Writers of Skeptic Ink Comes 13 Reasons To Doubt: A New E-Book!

    Just recently released, this new e-book by the authors of Skeptic Ink offers readers a skeptical look at a variety of subjects. It is titled 13 Reasons To Doubt: Essays from the writers of Skeptic Ink Here is the book’s description from Amazon.com:

    Extraordinary claims and extraordinary evidence.

    The mainstream and social media feed our minds a diet of fringe science and outright pseudoscience. They relentlessly stream paranormal, supernatural, and otherwise extraordinary claims. Where do all these come from? They’re spread by shysters and charlatans, by corporate propagandists with cynical eyes on the bottom line, by priests and preachers of all kinds, by axe-grinding cranks and ideologues, and frequently by well-meaning dupes.

    This may be a scientific age, but all too often, science, well-grounded scholarship, evidence, and logic are ignored—or even denied.

    Scientific skepticism offers a corrective: skeptics defend science and reason, while demanding the evidence for extraordinary claims.

    In this volume, we offer you thirteen ways to scientific skepticism: thirteen reasons to doubt extraordinary claims. The authors discuss groupthink and cognitive biases, science denialism, weird archeology, claims about religion and free will, and many other topics. Within these pages, there is something for anyone who wants to avoid biases and fallacies, cut through the masses of misinformation, and push back against fakers and propagandists.

    All of the essays are excellent and well worth your time. Very thought-provoking reading.

    I am told that other formats will become available at a later date (Paperback, Nook, Kobo, and iTunes).
