Needed source

Postby Purple Scissor » 07 Aug 2009, 13:27

WikiSynergy needs sources: we are looking for articles with classical pseudoskeptical mistakes by authors who are well-known, or at least have well-known blogs. We already have one on Richard Dawkins, which is the kind of thing we want to do. But that one was already done by Victor Zammit, and we want to do fresh ones. We want to eventually have several articles for each of the major pseudoskeptics. So please, if you know some good material for us to debunk, post it here! Not everything pseudoskeptical would work. We are looking for the classical mistakes, http://wikisynergy.com/wiki/Pseudoskepticism but we may not want the less cut-and-dried ones which are covered in Vinstonas' treatise. The Richard Dawkins one is a good example, because he makes some of the classics:

Request for an article:

I came across this just now:

This link
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m ... _80924583/
is supposed to go to an article entitled
"Three skeptics' debate tools examined" which apparently has a statement of pseudoskeptical arguments. I would like to find the article, if anyone can help.

I need it for this section:

Thx!

Purple Scissors - I tried surfing around but came up with nothing more than personal opinion on the "Three skeptics' debate tools examined" and a "File Removed' page that only gives the first few sentences but won't open on the link to the full article. Perhaps someone else will have better luck.

Good idea.

How about if I PM you the emails of SCEPCOP members and you can contact them all about this? We should have a separate email list for the committee members to discuss things like this, though at this point only a few of us are truly active here.

That would be great, thanks! Agree on the email list.
