What a great day for Skepticism!

What a great day for Skepticism!

Why, you ask? Is it because Galway Skeptics in the Pub finally has its own blog? (Thanks @donalfall) Or perhaps because said blog is fortunate enough to have me as one of its contributors?

Nope, nothing so vain, thankfully. Rather, it is because today is April 1st, widely celebrated as April Fools’ Day around the world. It’s the one day when even the most credulous of people will, upon reading or hearing just about any story, advertisement or article, think; “Is this really true?”

Now if only people applied the same thinking all year round.

  1. Podge raises a great point. I hope everyone tunes into the wonderful Jack of Kent Blog, but if you don't, you should check his great post today:


    Personally, I don't leave the house without my copy of The Demon Haunted World by his holiness Carl Sagan. It's also quite good for sucussions.
