Skeptic Summary #87

By The Staff
Posted on: 4/15/2006

Transitionals, Ceasar, atheist missionary, zombies, Bush, the fantastic and more!



Week ending April 15, 2006 (Vol 3, #14)

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:
Favorite example of transitional fossils - For alledgely being non-existant, there sure are many examples.

Sweet - “‘Render unto Caesar what Caesar demands.’ And right now, Caesar demands a building permit.”

Why he’s a Christian - An atheist missionary joins the Presbyterian Church.

Editor’s Choice: Interview with a Zombie Archaeologist - And I really thought it was going to be a link to an Urban Dead webpage.

From the Archives Bush: Moron or Sociopath? - Over three years later, and we still don’t have a solidly-evidenced answer.
Kil’s Evil Pick:
The Fantastic in Art and Fiction - Fun Stuff, bra hahahahahahahahahaha…
Chat Highlights:
Sunday: Worries about Skepticality; humming and whistling to tunes; coffee, black or otherwise; mystery novels; helping young Internet-illiterate girls; bad reasons for being a rebel; politics and nuking; musical tastes; chat-highjacking; babies and adults that walk on all fours; will Bibleland walk the mile?

Wednesday: Marf arrives on three hours’ sleep. Penn and Teller, the Jesus puzzle, soup, pie and comfort foods were discussed. Dave did the dishes. John loves Kil, whoever John is. There is an in-depth discussion on really good scotch, which sent some to partake. Cats that bark and tenants that don’t bark. (Okay, at this point the chat log ended. I do remember that Marf got toasted and we discussed art and bad art magazines. And lots of other stuff…)

Come chat with us.

Book of the Week:
Relativity Simply Explained, by Martin Gardner.



“One of the clearest, most entertaining introductions to the subject ever written offers lucid explanations of not only the special and general theories of relativity, but also of the Michelson-Morley experiment, gravity and spacetime, Mach’s principle, the twin paradox, models of the universe and other topics.”
