Useful Blogs

Not necessarily. Here are some very useful places where you can find regular musings by people who agree with the principles which drive The Green Light.

There are sites listed in this category.

Age of Ignorance

Comments censored from the anti-vaccination Age of Autism site

Autism Science Foundation (Blog)

Bad Astronomy (Phil Plait)

Climate Change Denial (George Marshall)

"This blog explores the topic of the psychology of climate change denial – with observations and anecdotes about our weird and disturbed response to the problem. It seeks to answer a question that has puzzled me for years: why, when the evidence is so strong, and so many agree that this is our greatest problem, are we doing so little about climate change?"

David Ramey, DVM

"Dr. Ramey is a vocal advocate for the application of science to medicine, and, as such, for the welfare of the horse. Thus, he has been a frequent critic of practices that lack good science, such as the diverse therapies collectively known as "alternative" medicine, needless nutritional supplementation, or conventional therapies that lack scientific support"

DC's Improbable Science (David Colquhoun)

Denialism Blog (Mark Hoofnagle)

"Here we will discuss the problem of denialists, their standard arguing techniques, how to identify denialists and/or cranks, and discuss topics of general interest such as skepticism, medicine, law and science"

Diluted Thinking in Australian Health Care (Christine Bayne)

"a website looking at pseudoscientific, non-evidence based healthcare in Australia"

Edzard Ernst (Dr Edzard Ernst)

During the last 25 years, Prof Ernst’s research focused on the critical evaluation of (almost) all aspects of so-called alternative medicine (SCAM). He does not aim to promote this or that therapy; his goal is to provide objective evidence, reliable information and critical assessments. This ambition does not endear him to many believers in SCAM.

The Secular Web

The Secular Web is owned and operated by Internet Infidels, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to defending and promoting a naturalistic worldview on the Internet. Naturalism is the "hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system" in the sense that "nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it." As such, "naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities," such as gods, angels, demons, ghosts, or other spirits, "or at least none that actually exercises its power to affect the natural world." And without miraculous interventions into nature from a spiritual realm, neither prayer nor magick are more effective than a placebo.

Skeptical Raptor

"A Skeptical Raptor's native environment is the jungles of the internet, where junk science, pseudoscience, myths, logical fallacies, and outright lies survive unchecked. The Raptor has evolved over several million years to hunt down these anti-science prey, attempting to remove them from the internet gene pool. Remember, a Raptor is missing some table manners, so the prey may not be treated very nicely"
