Skeptic Summary #46

By The Staff
Posted on: 6/24/2005

Project me to the Moon, drunk on foolishness, religionology, cheap-and-easy mastery, the evil eye and more!


Week ending June 24, 2005 (Vol 2, #25)

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:
Astral Projection - Well, maybe some sort of projection…

Creationist drinking game - Dude, I am sooooooo plowed…

Info about Scientology - Hi. My name is Tom Cruise. Could I get some publicity?

Editor’s Choice: Become a reiki master - It’s so damn easy, why isn’t everyone doing it?
Kil’s Evil Pick:
Whimsicality show #4: EVIL EYE!
Chat Highlights:
Sunday: Dr. Mabuse laments over never-ending computer problems; someone calling himself “elvergon” joins the chat, and after a short while it seems obvious it is our banned member latinijral revisiting SFN to check us out. Also: the Formula-1 scandal in Indianapolis; where is Verlch these days?; Microsoft games, “Age of…” series (you know, the Civilization rip-offs); writing fiction. Finally, some talk about Intelligent Design.

Wednesday: Members’ computer systems, and Kil is running anti-virus; the movie The Village; lawsuits in member’s favour. Also: PBS showing Feng Shui; someone’s plastered; geography. Finally: Kil is still running anti-virus; the Solar-sail satellite, rumour says it crashed in Finland.

Come chat with us.

Book of the Week:
Don’t Panic: Douglas Adams & the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Neil Gaiman



“Acclaimed author Neil Gaiman celebrates the life of Douglas Adams who, in a field in Innsbruck in 1971, had an idea that became The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy — the radio series that started it all, the five book ‘trilogy,’ the TV series, almost-film, and everything that followed. Don’t Panic also tells the story of the other projects Douglas worked on, including his posthumous collection The Salmon of Doubt.”
