The Skeptical Syndicate: Captain Disillusion

This segment of the Skeptical Samurai blog had previously been referred to as “The League of Extraordinary Skeptics”.  In all honesty, the more I said the name aloud the less I liked it.  So after much deliberation I have decided to change the name of this segment. 

I have changed the name of this segment to…

Wait for it…

The Skeptical Syndicate…

Sounds like the name of a mafia crime family doesn’t it? 

The purpose of “The Skeptical Syndicate” is to feature a known (or not so known) individual within the skeptical community, and highlight that individual’s contributions to skepticism.  This episode we feature Captain Disillusion!

Captain Disillusion is a skeptical super hero that works tirelessly to distinguish fact from fiction in the realm of digital photography and video.  Captain D (as he is also known) has quickly become a hero to all within the skeptical community for his hard work on subjects such as “The Pantry Ghost”:

and his very 1st video which explained the famous “rude penguin” viral video

From Captain D’s YouTube channel:

“In a world where the content of digital images and videos can no longer be taken at face value, an unlikely hero fights for the acceptance of truth.

Captain Disillusion guides children of all ages through the maze of visual fakery to the open spaces of reality and peace of mind.”

Captain Disillusion, for your efforts in the struggle against misinformation and pseudo-science, the Skeptical Samurai takes his kabuto off to you!

This has been the Skeptical Samurai

Working to serve…

Through the process of inquiry…
