It’s intimidating to realise that we live in a world overflowing with misinformation, bias, myths, deception, and flawed knowledge. There really are no ultimate authority figures – no one has the secret and there is no place to look up the definitive answers to our questions (not even Google). But, by thinking skeptically and logically, we can combat sloppy reasoning, bad arguments and superstitious thinking. In this tie-in to their popular ‘The Skeptics Guide to the Universe’ podcast, Steven Novella, along with ‘Skeptical Rogues’ Bob Novella, Cara Santa Maria, Jay Novella and Evan Bernstein explain the tenets of skeptical thinking and debunk some of the biggest scientific myths, fallacies and conspiracy theories. They’ll help us try to make sense of what seems like an increasingly crazy world using powerful tools like science and philosophy.
