Last skeptical will and doubtful testament

It's the new Skeptics' Circle!

While I was away on my Thanksgiving peregrinations, Jim Anderson at decorabilia published the 48th installment in the never-ending saga of Skeptics' Circle. Halfway There is twice named among the beneficiaries of Anderson's largesse. One citation is for Science envy, which presents the pseudoscientific maunderings of Hynek, Dembski, Pons & Fleischmann, and Gish. The other is for a commentary on a news item profiling a redoubtable dowser (whose explanation for dowsing does not invoke the usual mumbo-jumbo about electromagnetic fields—like an IDist, he just thinks God does it).

I presume that Anderson will now rest in peace after his laborious compilation of his terminal testament, but that doesn't mean that you should. Go check it all out!
