Skeptics Acting Like Discordians

Posted by : Rev. Ouabache | Wednesday, March 25, 2009 | Published in

If you head over to Skeptic.com, home of Skeptic magazine, you'll see that they did a very Discordian thing. A big group of them (including some of my favorite Skeptics like Dr. Eugenie Scott, DJ Groethe, Brian Dunning, Swoopy, and Jay Novella) got together and made a very long list. To be even more like the Discordians they then made this list into a Holy PDF, ready for distribution far and wide. Unlike the usually Discordian list, which usually includes ways to being a proper Discordian, their list is how to be a proper Skeptic.

It's entitled "What Do I Do Next?" and most of it is pretty good grassroots advice: help out skeptical organizations, learn about skeptical stuff, teach that skeptical stuff to others, investigate all bullshit claims, team up with other Skeptics to go fight crime, spread the word through your community, interact with the media, help out schools and libraries, get political, learn to use film, video, and the internet wisely; and talk amongst yourselves. All very good pieces of advise and stuff that I need to work on. I don't think I'm doing any of that besides using the internet to talk to myself. Looks like I've got a lot of work to do.

    It would be nice if this were in a more printable format.
