Introduction and invitation[edit]

Below (under the heading, "The post") is the working version of the main post in the Skeptiko forum thread, "Index of Skeptiko threads & related resources", which due to size has had to be split into multiple posts, starting here.

This post includes all threads from the "Critical Discussions", "Discuss the Show", "Consciousness & Science", "Extended Consciousness & Spirituality" and "Why Science Is Wrong..." forums on Skeptiko as of approx 12 July 2017. Some threads from the "Other Stuff" forum have also been included.

You are invited to edit this post in good faith, shifting list items from the "Uncategorised" category into a more specific category, creating new categories as necessary, and/or adding other resources that you think would be useful to include in it. Feel free to edit anonymously, but also feel free to create an account under which to edit, preferably using the same username that you use on Skeptiko if you have an account there. From time to time, after changes have been made, I'll edit the contents of the post below into the Skeptiko thread.

All sections are formatted as BBCode, which is why when you edit this wiki page you will see them enclosed in <bbcode></bbcode> tags, so that MediaWiki knows to render them as BBCode rather than wikitext. BBCode is the raw encoding that XenForo - the forum software on which Skeptiko runs - accepts for posts. If you are using the rich text editor for XenForo/Skeptiko (this is default), then to see/access the underlying BBCode, you will need to click the top-right icon in that editor, the one that looks like a blank page with its top-left corner folded over, overlaid by a spanner. The tool tip for this icon, i.e. the text that appears when you hover your mouse over it, reads "Use BB Code Editor".
