Skeptic's Circle #52

The latest Skeptic's Circle is now up, courtesy of Frank the Financially-Savvy Atheist. Go check it out.

To take a page from Bronze Dog, this is an open thread for you guys, but talking in anything but questions is FORBIDDEN.

Why'd you have to steal my thing?

Infophile said...

Isn't it possible that through some temporal anomaly, I came up with it first (in some sense of "first"), and you stole it from me?

Bronze Dog said...

Are you suggesting time travel as an alternative explanation without evidence?

Infophile said...

Who says I don't have evidence?

Akusai said...

Do you two realize how silly you're acting?

Infophile said...

Do you realize you just joined in with the silliness?

Akusai said...

How dare you insult me so?

Infophile said...

How dare you prove my point!?

Hmm, is it still a valid question if I throw in an exclamation mark, too?

Akusai said...

Why are you asking me?

Why don't you go read a grammar textbook instead?

And just what is a Bronze Dog, anyway?

Infophile said...

Is there anyone else here I could be asking?

Since when are physics students expected to own grammar textbooks?

Why are you asking me and not him?

Akusai said...

Why don't you just stop bothering me?

Do you enjoy watching me suffer?

Infophile said...

If it's bothering you, why do you keep coming here?

Akusai said...

Is it my fault that I enjoy reading your posts?

Infophile said...

Are you saying that it's both enjoyable and bothering?

Akusai said...

Are you trying to confuse me?

Bronze Dog said...

Why do you distract Infophile from his need to produce evidence of time travel?

Akusai said...

Why is everybody ganging up on me?

Infophile said...

Haven't you seen my evidence yet? Or, did I accidentally drop that off in the future? If I did, can that count as evidence?

Brendan said...

Is a "how dare you" statement really a question? Isn't it usually an assertion?

Infophile said...

Why are you only pointing out that instance? Did you not notice the many other instances of rhetorical questions, and are they not just as bad?

Akusai said...

Can't we all just get along?
