any information on skeptic societies and protecting pedophiles? im kind of hitting a road block here , i posted above
Did you see this article:
Does James Randi Protect Pedophiles?
This is pretty interesting:
James Randi, the magician, is involved with the False Memory Syndrome Foundation.
This group claims that many adults who have memories of pedophilia are actually having false memories!
"Some of our memories are true, some are a mixture of fact and fantasy, and some are false."
If a group of pedophiles wanted to protect themselves from accusations of pedophilia, what would be the best way?
I don't know if the following is exactly what you are looking for but it might be of interest:
The original web site has been removed but the page is available on the internet archive.
"Prometheus Books is a publishing company founded in August 1969 by Paul Kurtz, who also founded the Council for Secular Humanism and co- founded Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. He is currently the chairman of all three organizations. Prometheus books publishes a range of books, including many about science, especially those of a skeptical nature"
Note that Prometheus Books was founded by Paul Kurtz, the atheist and materialist philosopher founder of the pseudoskeptical organization CSICOP (now called CSI).
Well, if you enter to the website of Prometheus Books, and see the section on "Human Sexuality", you'll see titles explicitly or implicitly endorsing, promoting and justifying (with pseudo-scientific and "rationalistic" jargon) pornography, prostitution, paedophilia, sado-masochism, zoophilia, and other sexual aberrations and pervertions. In other sections you'll see titles supporting abortion and infanticide, or weird behaviours like transvestism.
The original "Human Sexuality" section of Prometheus Books catalog was edited by CSICOP/CSI Fellow and International Academy of Humanism Secretariat Dr. Vern Bullough, who according to wikipedia was "a member of the editorial board of Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia."
This pseudo-scietific and immoral journal (Paidika) was a pro-paedophilia journal. According to wikipedia "Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia (1987–1995) was a journal published by the Stichting Paidika Foundation. Articles drawn from it are available from a number of pro-pedophile activist websites. Its editor was Joseph Geraci and the editorial board included articles by writers Frits Bernard, Edward Brongersma, Vern L. Bullough, and D. H. (Donald) Mader, some of whom campaigned as pro-pedophile activists"
When I saw the above article, I thought that one of the motivations for some activist skeptics could be anger at religious organizations for condemning their alternative lifestyles.
Here someone suggested key words if you want to try to find more info on Randi:
"search online for Arcade, docks, messages,randi, pedophile phone conversations, recordings"
