Skeptic Summary #55

By The Staff
Posted on: 8/26/2005

Religious scientists, Robertson's chutzpah, global warming, free power, Intelligent Design creationism and more!


Week ending August 26, 2005 (Vol 2, #34)

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:
Can you be a good scientist and believe in God? - A fundamental question in today’s “culture war” between science and religion.

Robertson: U.S. should kill Chavez - Those pesky atheists will be next up against the wall!

Top anti-globalwarming paper is debunked - We are so boned.

Editor’s Choice: This guy has a funny idea of zero energy input - Another lesson in how patents don’t mean that something works.
Kil’s Evil Pick:
The Top 10 Intelligent Designs (or Creation Myths)
Chat Highlights:
Sunday: First out: fighter aircrafts; court decision to give atheism the same status as religion; Podcast Alley discussion; “impossible” physical feats and reserve power inherent in the human body. Also: actors and language/dialects; Rapture Ready and Theology Web; programming and JSP (not the web-language); energy of the future: power your car with alcohol or nuclear fuel?

Wednesday: Chat opened with a discussion of puzzles “for ungrateful bastards.” Also: Chicago schools; vowel movements; Rush & Rove; Skepticality; C++ and other mediocre grades; Cune get abused!; jokes galore; and SFN @ TAM. To learn more, you know what to do…

Come chat with us.
