About the Blog

INSIGHT at Skeptic.com brings together a variety of accomplished voices for a broad-ranging but focussed discussion of science and skepticism. As well as diving into issues and news surrounding mainstream science, we feature in-depth commentary, reflection, and perspective regarding fringe claims—and regarding the ethos and history of skepticism itself.

While there are are many excellent blogs devoted to the topics of faith, humanism, atheism, political viewpoints, and wider kinds of rationalism and philosophical doubt, those are not our focus here. Our approach is firmly grounded in another tradition: “scientific skepticism,” or critical, evidence-based investigation and analysis of “testable” paranormal and fringe science claims through the lens of science and scholarship. We discuss science and pseudoscience, wonder and skepticism, mysteries and solutions, methods and missteps, scams and exposés—and see how far evidence can get us.
