Skeptic Summary #25

By The Staff
Posted on: 1/30/2005

Calling all skeptics (yawn), Bush agonies, death penalties, Johnny Carson, dinner, false memory syndrome, the New Age paradigm shift and more!


Week ending January 28, 2005 (Vol 2, #4)

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:
ALL SKEPTICS PLEASE EXPLAIN - Even a psychic could have guessed how this thread would turn out!

Arrrgh!!! - As usual, Dubya fires everyone up.

The Death Penalty, Schwarzenegger and Court TV mov - Should capital punishment or convicts be permanently retired?

Editor’s Choice: Johnny Carson - Skeptic and Humanist too! - Rest in Peace.
Chat Highlights:
Wednesday: The Official Unofficial theme should have been “what’s for dinner?” as various SFNers discussed their favorite dishes for all occasions. Also: False memories; Dreams; Storm is frustrated; Creation88 owns the Patriots?; Way out there. Come by next Wednesday and see what’s new!

Sunday: Music and Dr. Mabuse’s crashed harddrive; Siberia’s operation. There was also talk about False Memory Syndrome, and the complexity of memories in general; There was a consensus that “Ghosts are in the mind of the beholder,” but there was no agreement as to what caused a person to perceive the ghost.

There will be a “Conscious Life Expo” at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton Feb 11- 13. Any SFN members who would like to experience a “New Age Expo” with an Evil Skeptic please contact Kil with a PM or an email, or a reply in this thread.

Who knows? Maybe this will lead to an “Evil Skeptic III” report…

Book of the Week:
Catastrophe: Risk and Response by Richard A. Posner



“Posner is, in my opinion, one of the smartest people on Earth. And while you may not agree with his analysis of everything, the depth of his analysis is to be admired, and his suggestions should be taken seriously.”
Cuneiformist
