Skeptic Summary #9

By The Staff
Posted on: 10/8/2004

Name that sound, yet another debate, hippo-birdy-two-ewes, sending your money to Malaysia, evolution's boost from the Bible, advice for debates and more!

Week ending October 8, 2004 (Vol 1, #9)

Welcome to the Skeptic Summary, a quick week-in-review guide to the Skeptic Friends Network and the rest of the skeptical world.

Forum Highlights:
Aussies close airport - Due to a what? In a what?

Formal Evolution/Creation debate - Its rules are mediocre, and it’s likely to be a waste, but what the heck, it’s a debate!

Happy Birthday! - Does the cake represent a fire hazard?

Investment schemes - A surprising number of new members have found this thread.

Editor’s Choice: Do ye not know, that we shall Judge Angels? - Finally, we learn that there is Biblical support for evolution, in more ways than one.
Kil’s Evil Pick:
My Advice about Debating with Christians, by Edward T. Babinski

Book of the Week:
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, by Edwin A. Abbott

Flatland… was published in 1880 and imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is. But one Flatlander, a Square, discovers the existence of a third dimension and the limits of his world’s assumptions about reality and comes to understand the confusing problem of higher dimensions. The book is also quite a funny satire on society and class distinctions of Victorian England.”
