Earn free stuff!: The Uncommon Descent Contest
|May 6, 2009||Posted by O'Leary under Intelligent Design|
Why just be a commenter when you can also earn free stuff?
Recently, I asked for and received 25 prizes, as follows:
10 DVDs of Expelled,courtesy the producers.
10 DVDs of Privileged Planet, courtesy the producers.
5 subscriptions, including back issues, to the excellent Christian/theistic science and culture mag, Salvo, complete with recent back issues, courtesy the editor-in-chief.
I will pose a question based on a recent news story, and ask for responses within two weeks. I will publish the winning response in a subsequent post.
1. No more than 400 words in response. I will select the response I find most interesting and print it as a post. Be succinct.
2. New ideas impress me, even if I disagree. Rants and myths don’t. Re abuse: Uncommon Descent is not competing for Troll Hole of the Year, so …
3. I will not correspond with anyone about the award. My In Tray is already a natural disaster. If you don’t win, try again. And who knows, if this contest takes off, I may be offered more prizes.
4. Update to Rules June 24, 2009: Entry to the contest gives implicit permission to repost the entry for publicity purposes. This update is not in response to a complaint, but simply for clarification. We sometimes repost to sympathetic sites.
The first question will come shortly.
