Enlightning Bolts – 07.05.2010 – Female Bloggers Edition

I recently posted a list of skeptical female bloggers (and websites, podcasts, etc.) and have been slowly making my way through them reading what they have to say. So I thought I would make a special Enlightning Bolts to highlight some of the posts I’ve been enjoying…


Rachael posted a positive story about how kids’ perceptions of scientists changed after they met some scientists.


Angie the Anti-Theist has an interesting multi-part piece on her experience with Alcoholics Anonymous. Here’s Part 1.


Doubtful Daughter has written about how much more she questions things now that she’s not a “believer”…it might as well have been written by me!


Apparently it’s Relocate Religious Books Month! I’ve never moved a book from its spot in the bookstore if it’s in the wrong section, I tend to think that’s just making the employees’ jobs harder, but I have mentioned to staff that certain books shouldn’t be in the Science section and gotten results. I also sometimes move Skeptic Magazine over so that it’s covering the woo-ish UFO and Biblical Archeology magazines – they’re in the same section so I don’t feel bad about doing that!

    I agree with you in that I don’t want to make life more difficult for the people who work at libraries and bookstores. I work in retail (though not in a bookstore) and putting things back on shelves is one of the most tedious parts of the job. Having to do it while and/or after helping lots and lots of customers is especially frustrating. I wouldn’t want to do that to anyone else.

    I think the message would perhaps get across better by writing to the owner/boss of the store or to the library. Perhaps people could get together and write a bunch of letter to the local paper or sign a petition or something.

    Thanks for mentioning those posts by female bloggers!

    Thanks for the link back! It allowed me to discover more female skeptics (of which there can not be too many!).
