Speaking of Name Calling and Skeptics

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 31st, 2007

Skeptics here decry the use of the term scoftic. The claim is cryptozoology would be taken more seriously without the name calling. As Loren has posted here on Cryptomundo at Skeptic Says You Are Stupid, the skeptics like to throw around the terms “woo” and “woo-woo”. Go take a look at the James Randi Educational […]

Skeptic Says You Are Stupid

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 31st, 2007

A site calling itself “Action Skeptics” shares, well, let’s say, a hostile view of cryptozoology within Akusai’s blog of May 31, 2007. Clearly, this blogger does not mince words. The subtitle for the site is, “Annoying stupid people, one woo at a time.” I don’t feel too stupid too often, although giving this Akusai a […]

New Skamania Tubesquatch

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 30th, 2007

Here’s the latest new Bigfoot video posted on YouTube, forwarded to me by a reader. Gosh, I certainly don’t go looking for these, that’s for sure. Maybe it’s just me, but I am beginning to feel like YouTube’s Sasquatch scenes are a total waste of my time, your time, and any serious researchers’ time. I […]
