I'm happy to announce that SCEPCOP has been featured in the popular paranormal magazine Atlantis Rising in their new issue 77! They send out the PDF version before shipping out the hard copies to their subscribers and bookstore chains, and so I've just obtained the PDF version of Issue 77, which is due out in September. It looks great and has an interesting opening line and catch phrase as well as a nice cartoon graphic.
Anyhow, this is great news, because it means that now we will be getting more publicity and traffic, especially when their hard copy goes out.
Fortunately, the editors of Atlantis Rising have allowed me to upload the issue to my website so that my members can download it in PDF format and see it for themselves. Here is the download link. Right click on it and click "Save As" and open it in Adobe Acrobat or a PDF reader. The article on SCEPCOP starts on page 24, continues on page 26 and then on page 61. In Adobe Reader, simply type the page numbers you want to go to at the top.
Later on, I will post screen shots of the article in this thread for you to see it.

Here is their intro to SCEPCOP. Sounds nifty huh? I love the part about the "new COP in town".
Pseudo Skeptics Beware
The New “COP” on the Beat Plans to Make Them Pay for Bad Arguments
In the debate over paranormal
phenomena, there is a
new COP in town, but this
one is challenging the fallacies
of organized skepticism
rather than the paranormal
the “Scientific Committee
of the Paranormal”
bills itself as
the “world’s first organized
group.” Principal organizers
are Vinstonas Wu,
Victor Zammit, John
Benneth, and Leo Mac-
Donald. It is, of course, directly
such as CSICOP
(Committee for Skeptical Inquiry
into Claims of the Paranormal)
which have, in the opinion
of the new group, enjoyed a position
of undeserved credibility and insufficiently
challenged influence for too long.
SCEPCOP intends to mount a full-scale
challenge to what they call pseudo-skeptical
arguments. You can visit their web site at:
following is an edited excerpt of an article
appearing on the site.
