#Skeptic
blurb
Drosera

The history of skepticism is one that has, as Hitch put, been burned out and stamped out. It‘s comforting to have this collection of writing from the past that can give me the feeling of an intellectual interconnectedness to a historical tradition of unbelief. Especially when that history is a poetic literary tradition. #skeptic #atheist #unbelief #agnostic #Hitchens

@Mdargusch passed this one on to me after she read it a few years ago. I absolutely loved it—a fictionalized account of a murder wherein the dead bride supposedly comes to her mother after death and tells her that she was murdered by her new husband?! Yes please! This really happened (the circumstances—not the actual haunting. Unless it really did. 😆 #skeptic) Google Greenbrier Ghost. #soaringscores #didimakethemostoflovingyou

Hollie Yes! I talk about this in class and the students are always like wtf when I tell them they allowed testimony from the murder victims ghost into the courtroom 😂 3mo
Reviewsbylola I‘m using this one for #personofcolorMCparanormal. Half of the book is told from the perspective of one of the attorneys that defended the ghost‘s husband, and the attorney was a POC. @cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage 3mo
emtobiasz They told this story on an episode I just watched of the show Drunk History! 📺 3mo

“At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense.” #Skeptic #QuotsyOct18
