It sometimes seems like the whole world has gone mad. Everyone I meet seems to believe in some irrational nonsense, no one can ever back up their beliefs with evidence, and yet they view me as the one with the problem. Psychics, psychokinesis, auras, alternative medicine, indigo children, global consciousness, astrology, reincarnation the list is endless. And just when I think Ive heard everything, along comes a new piece of drivel I have to listen to. Does anyone ever check anything before repeating it? Doesnt seem like it.
And if I ask for evidence to back up what is claimed, all I get is, you dont understand, or what do you mean, test it?, or I just know it works or that sounds closed-minded, or science doesnt know everything.
Its all over the news too. Sports people think that God stops whatever hes doing to help their team (its always their team) win a game. Creationist groups want to teach intelligent design as though it is science. Does anyone in the media know the difference between science and pseudoscience? Not that you can tell.
This site takes a critical look at many issues, he does his research, and proves his point. Simply a great blog and intelligent blogger. I only hope that someday I can blog as well as he does. Yes, I have a case of blog envy.
