You forgot to give the address. To subscribe to the SKEPTIC discussion
group, send the message to:

                 listserv@jhuvm.hcf.jhu.edu

To post messages to the entire group, send them to:

                 skeptic@jhuvm.hcf.jhu.edu

One of the current discussions on SKEPTIC that might interest members
of DARWIN-L is about a recent debate between a biologist and a
creationist, Duane Gish. Two summaries of the debate were posted, and a
discussion of how to effectively debate a creationist is currently
continuing.  Discussions of Gould's "Mismeasure of Man" (and arguments
about heredity versus environment, in general) also pop up periodically.
