Question of The Week: What Nonsense Facts Can You Ascribe To A Skeptic?

Chuck Norris doesn’t read books: he stares them down till they give him the information he wants. Oh, and Rome? He did build that in a day. And you know what’s underneath that beard? Another FIST!

These are just a few of the nonsense ‘facts’ ascribed to martial-arts yeti Chuck Norris that fly about the internet. Fortunately for him, none of them touch on his acting ability. If you listened to our podcast, Skeptics With a K, yesterday, you will have heard Mike ‘The Health Ranger’ Adams’ completely un-ironic list of facts about Skeptics.¬†You know the score: ¬†Skeptics don’t believe in anything, we work for Big Pharma, kill babies, that kind of thing… So for this week’s Question of the Week, we thought he’d give a Chuck Norris inspired response to Adams’ drivel.

The Question of The Week is this: What kind of Chuck Norris style nonsense facts can you ascribe to Skeptics that Mike Adams missed?

The funniest answer won’t recieve anything except our undying admiration, but if that’s good enough for Chuck Norris then it’s good enough for us!

    “Skeptics will abort your future children now.”

    Ona different note, I did hear a good Chuck Norris one the other day:

    “Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect 4 in three moves.”

    Skeptics don’t believe in zero, because you can’t divide by it and everyone knows that numbers are things you can divide by.

    “Skeptics believe people evolved from bigfoot, that’s why they say there’s no bigfoot anymore”

    You never see skeptics in the same room as Gillian McKeith. Coincidence?

    The Mersyside Skeptics Society put babies back into the womb to be aborted a second time.

    The Mersyside Skeptics Society don’t believe that God, Jesus, or even their own parents love them without COLD HARD PROOF!

    The Mersyside Skeptics Society suffered HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS from their recent homeopathic ‘overdose’ – they just don’t believe in side effects either.

    The Mersyside Skeptics Society may hate all religions, but they ESPECIALLY HATE YOURS!

    Well I might take you lot seriously if you could spell – which you can’t. It’s SCEPTIC with a ‘c’.

    Skeptics don’t believe in anything. Only their skepticism keeps them from being atheists.

    ‘To belive in luck’ – is skepticism

    Skepticism is slow suicide

    Skepticism destroys the soul

    I’ve got nothing to add except to say what a laugh I had at the 1023 campaign. Thank God (who?) someone’s taking this bullshit pseudoscience on in the media!

    ps. If I’m anti-homeopathy, does that mean I can cure my flatulence with a 1kg block of sulphur?

    when socrates announced “all I know is that I know nothing!” a sceptic in the background shouted “are you sure, man?!”

    Skeptic rock bands don’t rehearse… they have an evidence based practice

    Skeptics don’t pay bills (or can walk through walls). They stop believing in them till they disappear.

    Skeptics aren’t allowed to fly Saudi Air. Their lack of faith prevents the planes taking off.

    Chuck Norris thought he could take on a skeptic, but he was too sure of himself.

    Skeptics are never convicted by a jury. There’s always a reasonable doubt.

    Haha, I love all four by mick.

    skeptics don’t read scientific papers, they guess what is wrong with it and hope no one checks.

    it has been statistically proven (p<0.06) that skeptics are wrong.

    Nice one Pete. Welcome to the North West of Pommie land!
