Michael Kruse joins the Legion of Reason this week. Michael is executive director of Bad Science Watch. The mission of Bad Science Watch (http://www NULL.badsciencewatch NULL.ca/) is to “provide analysis of dubious scientific claims to Canadians, our government, and the media, promote objective critical thinking, and advocate for the enforcement and strengthening of consumer protection regulation.” They’ve been at the forefront of the fight against recognizing homeopathic vaccines known as nosodes and claims that WiFi can affect public health.

A shameless skeptic with no patience for foolish nonsense and relishes nothing more than busting balloons filled with hot air. And, yes. I'm an atheist, for the same reason that I am a-homeopathic, a-chiropractic, a-reiki, etc. Atheism is a conclusion of modern skepticism applied to religious claims every bit as much as I don't buy into the Bigfoot myth. You want me to accept your claim? Show mete evidence, and it had best be better than the typical "Oh, but the evidence is all around you!" That gets no traction with me. But that doesn't mean my mind can't be changed. I'm no contrarian. I just happen to have more respect for myself than to fall for arguments like "You can't prove it isn't true!"
