I didn't really know where to put this thread...
..but, I would like to have somewhere to discuss some topics that skeptics and free thinkers alike, go about exploring and debunking.
Personally I thrive on the information that is out there the more I learn, the more I want to know.
So let us share information in our conversation, maybe share what impact having critical or even cynical thinking has had on your life through interactions with others.
What psuedo-science bugs you the most?
Recommendations of books, authors, articles, websites - welcome
I have a crisp new book sitting on my table - "50 popular beliefs that people think are true" - by Guy P. Harrison...
..and after I have attempted to fix the dishwaser [highly likely that I give in and call a repairshop], hang the washing and clean the bathroom- I will be sitting down in the sun to a read.
a selection of topics include (taken from the front cover) : 'you're either born smart or you're not ~ astrology is scientific ~ A psychic read my mind ~ Atlantis is down there somewhere ~ the universe and earth are fine tned for life ~ creationism is true and evolution is not ~ storis of past lives proves reincarnation is real ~ ghosts are real and thy live in haunted houses ~ UFOs are visitors from other worlds ~ Area 51 is where they keep the aliens ~ the end is near'
Be back later
Looking forward to some interesting, informative, light hearted , questioning conversation!
