Fake Jewellery

Skepsheik, in cooperation with Bulgari and Cartier, supports the call to ban "fake jewellery".
To this end we will co-sponsor a team of highly qualified diamond experts and goldsmiths to ensure that only "Real Jewellery" is allowed on the premises at future skeptic events.

Where do you think you are going, cheapskate.

Rebecca Watson - The Ke$ha of Atheism - An Apology

Official Apology from Skep Sheik

It is with great regret that I must now address the fact that I labeled the recent "Are You Fem Enough" picture of Rebecca Watson as "The Ke$ha of Atheism".

I realize now the hurt I have caused by callously describing a talented and caring individual in this way.

Many young women and girls look up to her as a positive role model and the likening of her to such a shallow celebrity wannabe was, quite simply, wrong.

I hereby sincerely apologize.

Sorry Ke$ha
