Skeptic Summary #18

By The Staff
Posted on: 12/10/2004

Nextgen English, cartoon skepticism, joke-joke-real-joke, therapy near the holidays, despair and more!

Week ending December 10, 2004 (Vol 1, #18)

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:
E-Prime - SFN Member R.Wreck says, “What I classify as God saw that the light seemed to be good; and what seems to be God appeared to separate the light from the darkness.”

Three Cheers for South Park, Super Skeptics - It really is a good episode.

Editor’s Choice: Flat Earth Society - Will the real group of crackpots please stand up?
Chat Highlights:
The Wednesday chat looked at secular and religious approaches to the winter holidays. Skeptics appear to participate in celebrations — even ones linked to religious practice — if only to keep with cultural tradition, and/or because wives or parents make them. Also, The_Ignored revealed personal conflict in debating people who are ready for the Rapture; Dr. Kil’s therapy sessions; tkster’s wild summer; and avatar problems for Doomar. Next week, it’s back to chat-free-for-all.
Kil’s Evil Pick:
Despair, Inc.
New Article:
N. 56, December 2004: Dude, This IS Your Country! - Come on, Massimo, don’t hold back: tell us what you really think about the current US political environment.
