The circle of link is unbroken

The smartest blog in town, All Embracing but Underwhelming... has very kindly linked to my post about alternative medicine. I would leave a comment but a ghost in the machine is stopping me.

It must be a conspiracy.

I think you're right, Paul. I just wrote a response about conspiracism, hit send and voila, the whole page disappeared!

I wanted to alert him to the wikipedia entry on conspiracy theory/conspiracism, which I found useful:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conspiracy_theory

Not sure how a reference to wikipedia would look in a thesis bibliography :) I think I read that he wants to do it on the radio...

It's getting worse; I went to one of the links and I got a 403 forbidden warning.

Speaking of leaving messages, I await your thoughts on this:

Hmmm. That's the second fundy education outfit with American connections that I've come across lately.

The Home Education Foundation sell a book called TimeChart History of the World - "6,000 years of world history at a glance...starts with Adam and Eve and follows the Biblical chronologies". Based on Biship [sic] Ussher's chronology. I saw the book advertised in Keystone, a bi-monthly journal published by the Christian Home Schoolers of New Zealand, which sits under the umbrella of the HEF (not sure if it's still functional).

These outfits are supported by our taxes, folks, and their miseducated students our future adult citizens.

Speaking of broken links and right wing conspiracists, there is a very funny dogfight going on over at the menz "discussion" site:

United Future must be truly desperate to be snuggling up to these guys.

Rita, I think one could write a thesis on Wikipedia conspiracy theories.

Stephen, anonymous (x2) thank you all. This is all good stuff
