The Skeptic in the Room

I found this thanks to Michael Edmonds at Molecular Matters.
He seems to find it funny. It just doesn't quite do it for me though.
More and more, as my ability to bite my tongue slips from me, I find
that, apparently, I am the one coming off like an arrogant jerk. As far
as I can tell, when woo rears it's ugly head, and I either put forth an
argument or ask for justification, I get regarded as close-minded and
intolerant. And the longer it goes on, the more I ask for some logically
coherent justification of my friends belief's, the more I am judged as

I find there's a horrible double standard sometimes
to. Those putting forward the woo feel comfortable in judging me as
dismissive of other viewpoints, without conceding the possibility that
their own viewpoints might be wrong. <Sigh>. Depressing sometimes.
