This is all very exciting – the Young Australian Skeptics blog is being relaunched in late August, with your truly at the helm as Head Editor. With a new writing team, a new design and a new focus, we’re looking to breathe new life into the contributions of young people into the online skeptical movement.
In the near future, this blog will endeavour to fill an important niche in communicating scientific ideas, critical thinking and engagement with social and political issues relating to science, religion and education: [...]

It’s happening! George Hrab, skeptical musician, podcaster and man-human, has announced the dates for his Styrofoam Tour of Australia and New Zealand:
More details about the Melbourne show (which I will be at, of course – I wouldn’t dream about passing up a Geo show) can be found at the Young Australian Skeptics, but here’s the short version:
George is playing in Melbourne on Tuesday, 30th November 2010, from 8pm at The Clyde Hotel, 385 Cardigan Street, Carlton, Victoria. It’s a free, over 18s event. [...]

Homologous Legs is hosting the 135th edition of the Carnival of the Godless on the 14th of February (Valentine’s Day), so the next 24 hour period is really your last chance to submit your godless posts for entry into the carnival – I’ll be starting to write it and put it all together late tomorrow night, so I can auto-post it on the 14th while I have more… romantic things to do.
Once again, submissions go here. And it’s never too late [...]

Yes, I mentioned it in an earlier post, but now I’m making it absolutely clear – on the 14th of February (Valentine’s Day, eh?) Homologous Legs will be hosting the Carnival of the Godless blog carnival!
If you want submission guidelines, here’s the place to go, but really, anything pertaining to or about religion from a godless perspective is fine (which is what the guidelines say, but… some people never click links).
You go here to submit blog posts – none of that “emailing” [...]

… because I’ve been on my school’s Bike Camp in northern rural Victoria, a strange land not frequented by easy Internet access, and as such there haven’t been any miniblog updates to make you aware of.
It’s funny how life always gets in the way of things on the Internet, isn’t it? Well, not that that’s a bad thing…
Reed Braden, formerly of the blog Homosecular Gaytheist, has started a new project – The Gaytheists. This new group blog will be specifically for LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Questioning/Queer) atheists, skeptics and humanists.
It will draw on the writing prowess of:
Reen Braden (of course) Derek Rogers (from the Dalhousie Atheist Community, interviewed on Episode 18 of the Pseudo Scientists podcast) Greta Christina (from Greta Christina’s Blog) Jason Ball (from the Young Australian Skeptics) Jessica Sideways [...]

Due to my school’s production of the musical Grease, I won’t be able to blog on this site for about a week. Don’t think of it as a break, but as an extended forced pause. It’s not that I don’t want to blog, but that I will literally have no time to do so.
See you all in a week!
N.B. I now have an Amazon wishlist, filled with delicious anti-creationism/anti-evolution tomes and scientific textbooks. If anyone feels the need to help out the education of a poor [...]

This is the last call for submissions to the 114th edition of the Skeptic’s Circle blog carnival! I’ve received heaps of entries already, but there’s always room for more, you lovable skeptics, you.
Send all submissions to jacksca (at) gmail (dot) com, but make sure to check the guidelines before you hit that “send” button.
The carnival will be going up early Thursday morning, Eastern Standard Time, so there’s not much time left!
NOTE: As of now, I will not be accepting anymore entries into the [...]

On the 18th of June, the 113th edition of the famed Skeptic’s Circle blog carnival was hosted at The Uncredible Hallq, featuring posts from great skeptical blogs you might know like Podblack Cat and Action Skeptics.
On the 2nd of July, the 114th edition of the Skeptic’s Circle will be hosted here, at Homologous Legs. This is the first time I’ve hosted such a celebrated carnival before, so it would be safe to say that I’m slightly nervous. But hopefully I’ll get [...]

Any of you familiar with Kylie Sturgess’s excellent blog Podblack Cat would most probably have come across one of her “Little Kitten” posts, lighthearted blogs about anything she comes across that is of interest. The most recent example of this is “Little Kitten – Joss Whedon On Humanism”, if you’re interested in finding out about the concept.
I love the idea, so I’m going to steal it. Sorry, Kylie, but I do it out of love, I promise. So much love. But, hey, [...]
