2020 top 10 articles – not all about vaccines and COVID-19

Last updated on January 17th, 2021 at 11:15 am

It’s that time of the year, the top 10 articles of 2020 on the Skeptical Raptor website. As years go, 2020 is quite at the level of 1939, when WWII started that killed six million Jews and over 50 million other people, or 1347, the first year of the Black Death, which eventually killed up to 200 million people.

But in my lifetime, 2020 ranks at or near the top 10 of the “years that suck” list. 

Traditionally, I repost the top 10 list of articles that I have written over the past year, but 2020 is different. The news about COVID-19, vaccines, and quack treatments have required constant writing so, I never got to do the reposts. So, I’m just going to list the 2020’s top 10 list of articles.

Please take time to read some of them, repost them if they’re interesting, and comment. It helps this website grow and gets out facts about important science and medical issues that are the target of science deniers.

The 2020 top 10 list of articles 

This list isn’t of my favorite articles, best articles, or anything subjective. It is merely the 2020 top 10 list of articles published here ranked by the number of views by all of you out there in the world of the internet.

Will they all be about vaccines, COVID-19, or both? Let’s see.

Final comments

Yup, the 2020 top 10 list of articles was all about vaccines, with a few about vaccines and COVID-19. 

As we head into 2021, which we all hope is an upgrade to 2020, I want to thank all of you for reading the articles published by myself, Professor Dorit Rubinstein Reiss, and others on this website. I didn’t have much of a chance to write about other issues in science and medicine that worry me, but I think that COVID-19 and vaccines are going to be the biggest issue for the upcoming few months.

I do wish you all a Happy New Year. I can see the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel!
