More Bass Ackwards

A few weeks ago, this blogger posted on how alternative medicine practitioners may call "real" (science-based) medicine "alternative" and alternative medicine "real" medicine (see here).  This bass ackwards juggling of terminology is common with most anti-scientific ideology (i.e. creationism/intelligent design, alternative medicine, psychic phenomenon, UFO belief, climate change denial, conspiracy theories, spirit/ghost belief, Christian apologetics, etc).  This anti-skeptic website, http://www.debunkingskeptics.com/,  is, frankly, an absurd attempt to juggle terminology on skeptics in general.  What's the harm?   As always, let the buyer beware.
