I just had to throw this in for shits and giggles. I use this mainly on JREF when there is a thread whose only intention is to mock what they call woo. Example: Rules of Woo(http://forums.randi.org/showthread.php? ... =rules+woo)


How to be a Pseuoskeptic!!
in your spare time
for fun and profit!!


You, too, can earn up to $200,000 per yr.!!
Just like James Randi!


For just 3 easy payments of $99.99 Randi will share with you his Amazing Secrets™ and equip you with all the necessary tools you will need to become almost as successful as he is.

Your starter-kit includes:

• 5 cans of Woo Repelent
• 3 cans of Myth Buster spray
• 1 woo doo doll to stick pins in (just put picture of your favorite woo, CTer or True Believer on it)
• Quick reference guide of Wiki logical fallacies and cognitive biases
• 1 set of Sasquatch pelt lined horse blinders
• 3 cans of hubris
• 2 Cans of insufferability
• 10 Cans of condescension
• Free Autographed books by
James Randi
1. Secrets of getting rich in debunking”
2. How I made my first $1,000,000 in debunking…and so can you!”
3. How to start your own Cult of Personality”

• Quick reference guide to plausible UFO explanations
• Instructions on how to come across as scientific even if you’re not.
• FREE membership in CSIOPS which includes all the personal cell phones of present and past members for those emergency, late night woo busting sessions.
• 1 bale of Unicorn wool to pull over everybody’s eyes
• Complete lessons in how to put the Bunk-Fu mind grip on naïve, superstitious sheeple

Plus, if you act now!! Amazing Enterprises will include, absolutely free, James Randi’s most Amazing trick of all…
(drum roll goes here)

Sleight of Mind™
Giving the surface appearance of disproving something with nothing more than a parlor trick


But wait a minute, that’s not all. The first 50 callers will also receive the complete blueprint on how to set up your own Church of the Atheist Abyss
and not have to pay any taxes. But hurry, supplies are limited.

Just call 1-800-Amazing
This offer void and prohibited to any woo/CTers/True Believers
Debunkers think all UFO photos are fake,
especially the real ones.

The author sent me the new version of his article "Zen and the Art of Debunkery". Here it is:

http://web.me.com/dandrasin/Dansworld/zen.html
“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
