I won’t waste your time listing all the scientific and logical deficiencies that riddle this document because I believe that you created ‘The Sceptics Handbook’ as a spoof to test the readers level of scientific literacy.I told my graduate student that anyone with a bachelor’s degree in science—specialising in microbiology and molecular biology nonetheless, would surely not pretend to challenge the world’s scientific community’s consensus understanding on climate change.At singles2za you will find the same kind of online dating system that you will find at other well known South African dating sites where you would pay anything from R100 to a couple of hundred rands per month.At singles2za we will not charge you anything to use this quality South African dating service. You appear to have spent more time reading my CV than looking at the science.I’m flattered, but respectfully point out that my qualifications have no influence on the radiosondes, satellites, CSSP graphs or IPCC documents I refer to. Have you a religious belief in AGW that helps you justify this unscientific behaviour? I’m delighted you are coming to Australia and want to draw attention to the Skeptics Handbook.For example, when you search for a film, we use your search information and location to show the most relevant cinemas near you.
[snip discussion of himself speaking soon in Australia...] But more to the point, I would please ask that you confirm asap that your ‘Handbook’ is indeed intended as a spoof and should be interpreted as such.Without learning to reason I fear they will fall victim to hype, scam, exaggerated threats, and false assurances.Your letter has inspired me to find other ways to help children defend themselves from con-men, poor curricula, and well meaning academics.At this point in time this is the only rational conclusion I can reach concerning your work.If this is the case I’ll have a good laugh and only ask that you put a comedy disclaimer somewhere on your website to attest to this fact .
