5th Day’s Links Sceptique for May 3rd, 2011


The 5th Day’s Links Sceptique is back this week, after a several week hiatus…My bad.

This article on Freethought Blogs by Ben Radford notes that “People Don’t Read, and Why it Matters to Skepticism…” This is something I’ve noticed myself now and then over the last 4+ years of blogging.

And, my favorite Astrophysicist responds to the question…

Atheist or Agnostic?

5th Day’s Links Sceptique is a selection of links to blogs, news outlets, and cool little sites on the Web that relate to science, reason, skepticism, atheism, the fringes and borderlands of science, memes relating to science or skepticism, and anything that catches my eye or which I’m deluded enough to think might arouse the interest of you, my perspicacious readers. 5th Day’s Links Sceptique is published on Thursdays on the Call.
