About

This blog is about skeptism and podiatry:

Skeptism is:

Skepticism is not doubt, disbelief, or close-mindedness. It is not being negative about every new or controversial idea. Skepticism is a process of critical thinking, reason, and evidence to determine the validity of an hypothesis. It is a rational and an openminded process to find a conclusion that is supported by evidence. It is never used to justify a preconceived conclusion. It is never used to irrationally reject evidence based on a personal desire for only one conclusion.

There are some very important concepts in that definition:

Skepticism is not doubt, disbelief, or close-mindedness.
It is not being negative about every new or controversial idea.
Skepticism is a process of critical thinking, reason, and evidence to determine the validity of an hypothesis.
It is a rational and an openminded process to find a conclusion that is supported by evidence.
It is never used to justify a preconceived conclusion.

I started this blog after the success of Running Research Junkie which aimed to analyse all the nonsense in the running community based on the actual evidence and not propaganda and rhetoric. After a few years there were more and more topics coming up that were outside the running community that I felt needed to be addressed, so I started this blog: Its a Foot Captain…but not as we know it to take a skeptical look at claims related to podiatry and the foot.
