Defund NCCAM

There is a proposal at Change.gov (The website of The Barack Obama transition team) to Defund the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

I suggesting reading a little bit about it on this blog.

You can vote to defund NCCAM and help save $225 million dollars that are wasted researching completely useless pseudoscience.

I'm a Skeptic

Recently I've been starting to get into the Skeptical movement. It started off in my interest with the Skeptoid podcast. I then spread out my interest by reading a bunch of different blogs such as Respectful Insolence and Science-Based Medicine.

The various sites have helped improve my critical thinking skills and have shown me a bunch of ways I had already been mislead. I have also learned a great deal about science and evolution over the last couple of weeks because my travels have lead me to several different scientific sites. All in all it has been a very education week, maybe being off from school has made my desire to learn go off in different tangents.
