Skeptics Spiked

There is an interesting article on Spiked by Ben Pile, taking issue with the rise of the Skeptic movement. Pile makes a little too much of a comment by Randi IMHO but he's spot on about the Brights, a movement that has always struck me as a little New Agey.

"Sceptics and rationalists ought to be taking a look at their own ideas to find out why they fail to find purchase in the public imagination. Putting science and rationalism back on the map is going to take more than PR, angry rants about stupid religious people, or teaching kids that ‘science is cool’. We don’t need a police force to protect us from bad ideas. We just need better ideas".

Its a thought provoking article, read it here
