Cool project by the Edinburgh Skeptics

Skeptical Fact of the Day

Every day of 2019, we will release a Skeptically themed fact. It could be a person, a 'woo', a product, a concept that you may or may not know about. Check back daily for links, or check out our social media.

Seems like a great project to me. On January 1, they elaborated:

At Edinburgh Skeptics we realised that not everyone is as well versed in skeptical ideas, figures or events as we are, so for 2019 we decided to do a skeptical fact of the day – one a day every day.

Even people who have been active skeptics for many years have their blind spots so this is your place in 2019 to get little snippets of skeptical info and increase your knowledge.

Some topics so far include Holocaust denial, Skeptics in the Pub, the Skeptics' Guide to the Universe, woo, and dowsing.
