With that, our story comes to a close. Or does it? The brain is a tricky organ, completely capable of holding two utterly conflicting viewpoints at the same time without second thought. This is why skepticism isn’t called “anti-acupuncture.” Skepticism seeks to cut to the heart of the matter by educating for and encouraging critical thinking in all things. It’s not a belief system, after all, it’s a methodology.
Despite the coming and going of the three ghosts, I knew I’d have to have a wrap-up comic of some sort, and this seemed like the best way to do it. Will there be a Ghosts of Woo: Chiropractic in the future? Maybe. I have to admit, having a long series like this was exhausting, and I ended up missing out on some current news. I hope you enjoyed it, the series has been well received all around, so I’d call it a success. Like Craig, it’s not likely to have changed any entrenched minds, but my expectation was that it was educational for anybody on the fence or unacquainted with the topic.
Oh, want a way to view the whole series in one go? Your wishes have been answered. Enjoy!
On to some updates:
☼I went to the opening night of Baba Brinkman’s Canterbury Tales Remixed and it was most excellent. Major kudos to Baba and Jaime for putting on such a well produced, entertaining show. Full review soon. In the meantime, go check it out!
☼I wrote an article on Mad Art Lab about my recent adventure with Phil Plait and the peer review of comics.
☼Thanks to all the folks who shared, reshared, and tripleshared the Ghosts of Woo series across the webs.
☼You may have noticed that we switched to Disqus for out comments. The flurry of attention that the Ghosts of Woo recieved has necessitated a more robust system. Right now, nothing has changed, you can still post comments with your novelty e-mail addresses. But I suspect that may change in the future at first sight of a truly fearsome internet troll. Enjoy it while you can
I’m sure I forgot something. I’ll add it later if I remember. Peace!
