Technically I'm not a Skeptic, but I do like to have science on my side when making arguments in domains where appeals to objective moral law fall on deaf ears.
I get quite a bit of mail from the charities I support and very often they make very bold and broad claims. I haven't attempted yet because I have a feeling I'd be A.) accused of forcing people to make value judgements or B.) plain old trolling.
So whatever I ask better be both written in a completely neutral tone and in a way that only asks the answerer to evaluate the circumstances. And at all costs avoid religion.
So my question is, how would you frame a question like:
"The Foo and Family institute of New Barland says the population will level off at X billion in 20XX and then start decreasing, is this true?"
Which to some would seem like an objective thing people could be skeptical about but to others might seem like a proclamation of anti-Malthusian values.
