There is a skeptic in us all – it’s just that in some, it is more evident while in others, it is buried deep within their psyches. Unsurprisingly, we tend to see more of this skepticism come out in blogs. Perhaps it is because of the sense of freedom that writing can present to us. Perhaps it is another altogether different reason. Whatever Steppen Wolf’s reason is, I have to say that her or his (I am not really sure) blog, The Skeptical Alchemist, makes for some thought-provoking reading. Steppen Wolf describes the blog as a “melting pot of science, current events and the absurdities of human nature.” You can’t go wrong with that mixture!
