Thanks to a fellow blogger, Carl of the Truth Seekers' Guide, see: http://thetruthseekersguide.blogspot.co.uk/ , I've found out that PZ Myers has been assisting the BBC in their forthcoming UFO Skepperama, see here for background: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/bbc-makes-ufo-conspiracy-road-trip.html . Here's PZ's own blog article about that: http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2012/05/12/my-day-in-flagstaff/
PZ Myers is best known as a debunker of the Creationist theory of Intelligent Design in biology, rather like Richard Dawkins. Here are the two in conversation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Gaw6kzXbdA . I think this is another example of the "multi-disciplinary" nature of the Skeptic Movement. People who take a Skeptic position on one thing tend to take Skeptic positions on others. For instance people who don't believe in ghosts also tend to reject 9/11 "conspiracy theories" and, in this case, a man who criticizes Intelligent Design also rejects UFO's .There is definitely a "Skeptic milieu" at work here, and I think this once more calls into question the Skeptic Movement's self-image and persona.
