    Even though we got a little off topic on some discussions and I did not agree with some of the examples, Phil did a good job to keep us on track and educate us on the meaning and definition of pseudoskepticisim and I can understand how I might be a pseudoskeptic on some issues. Understanding the definition of pseudoskepticisim will make me aware of it and help me avoid being a pseudoskeptic.

    apologies to everyone for the tardy upload of this month's topic -
    pseudoskepticism. the accompanying blurp didn't make it here but can be viewed on the cfi: cafe skeptique meetup page: http://www.meetup.com/CFIOntario/events/87742412/?a=ea1_grp&rv=ea1&_af_eid=87742412&_af=event

    thanks, and hope to see you tomorrow 5pm.

      thanks for asking for clarification on blurp. it is, of course, the former. the more common confusion is the useage (in Britain) or usage (south of the 49th) of blurp when one clearly means blart - you can understand where the misuse comes from. on the other hand, the commonplace term for "burp worth discussing" is burpworthy; polyglots favour burpilingual. burpicate is downright antediluvian (I'm just sayin').

      and Bruce, in anticipation of your "south of the 49th" catechism - i'm referring to parallel. Only Romneyites like you think percent (and that's 47, not 49). I'm just sayin'...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
