One of my revered ancestors used to say of criticism, "don't break the rice bowl". In other words, don't cause someone to lose their job or their means of earning money. I will try to structure the posts here in such a way that individuals aren't criticized, but the profession is, where justified.
I identify as a skeptic, in the sense of Tim Farley's elevator pitch:
“Skepticism is the intersection of science education and consumer protection. We help people learn from science to avoid spending their money on products and services that do not work.”
For those of you who like visuals:
You will notice that my visage is not of a contemporary person. The image is of John Adams, I believe painted by John Trumbull. James True Adams is an homage to some of my ancestors. This use of a nom de net is based on previous experiences of retaliation. See for example the saga of René Najera or the British Chiropractic Assocation's suit against Simon Singh.
