Skeptic Summary #27

By The Staff
Posted on: 2/11/2005

Fate and karma, spinning, illuminati, procreation, non-"enemies," haikus and more!


Week ending February 11, 2005 (Vol 2, #6)

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:
Fate, Karma, Aethism, and the Occult… - It was bad juu-juu, but it was pre-ordained to happen.

Spin… - To everything, turn, turn, turn.

Wanna think your a god? Join the Iluminati! - More misinformation than you can shake a stick at, courtesy our resident rabid Fundie.

Editor’s Choice: Welcome Rafferty Meyer-Heinrich - One of the SFN’s moderators procreates!

From the Archives: Illegal Combatants - This hacked off a lot of people.
Kil’s Evil Pick:
Insulting hiakus - Want a description? / Tough, just follow the danged link! / I won’t hold your hand.
Chat Highlights:
Sunday: How can skeptics appreciate ghost-movies? (we just do…) Fate/karma versus superstition and belief. Where do deities fit in? Can an atheist, who rejects deity/ies, believe in fate/karma? Discussion continues over here… Philosophy, occult evolving into science. Most important though: An attempt to design an experiment to show if Storm’s experience was an out of body experience, or sleep paralysis.

Wednesday: Nobody on staff really remembers this chat, so it must have been good.

Come chat with us.

Book of the Week:
The Fabric of the Cosmos, by Brian Greene



“Assuming an audience of non-specialists, Greene has set himself a daunting task: to explain non-intuitive, mathematical concepts like String Theory, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, and Inflationary Cosmology with analogies drawn from common experience. For the most part, he succeeds. His language reflects a deep passion for science and a gift for translating concepts into poetic images.”

— Amazon Editorial Review
