For ages, a deadly conflict has been waged between a few brave men and
women of thought and genius upon the one side, and the great ignorant
religious mass on the other. This is the war between Science and Faith.
The few have appealed to reason, to honor, to law, to freedom, to the
known, and to happiness here in this world. The many have appealed to
prejudice, to fear, to miracle, to slavery, to the unknown, and to
misery hereafter. The few have said "Think". The many have said "Believe!"
-- Robert Ingersoll, "Gods"

For example, if thinmskip = 3mu, this makes thickmskip = 6mu. But if
you also want to use skip12 for horizontal glue, whether in math mode or
not, the amount of skipping will be in points (e.g., 6pt). The rule is
that glue in math mode varies with the size only when it is an mskip;
when moving between an mskipand ordinary skip, the conversion factor
1mu=1pt is always used. The meaning of 'mskipskip12' and
'baselineskip=thethickmskip' should be clear.
