Analysis / Bias
In review, Skeptic Ink is a blog/website that publishes scientific and skeptical information. Most articles are emotional and do not properly source their information, such as this OPERATION HAND OF GOD. This opinion piece is not sourced at all. There is again zero sourcing from other sources in another titled THE UNNECESSARY SCIENCE – A USEFUL SUMMARY. This is a mostly pro-science source, but with the lack of sourcing and transparency, we render them Questionable by default.
