The following was inspired by a post by Skepdude on the Skepfeeds blog…Enjoy.

If you believe that the pyramids were built by aliens or Atlanteans, you’re wrong.

If you believe that conventional explanations for unusual phenomena are always contrived and implausible because you can’t understand them, you’re wrong.

If you believe that believing something really, really hard makes it true, you’re wrong.

If you believe that objective reality doesn’t exist, and that this is objectively true, you’re wrong.

If you believe that cold reading, the Forer effect and the Ideomotor effect are myths because they are used to refute psychic powers, you’re wrong.

If you believe that superstition and magical thinking are psychologically healthy, you’re wrong.

If you believe that the religious rules you follow apply to everyone, even those not of your religion, you’re wrong.

If you believe that ancient myths are literally true historical accounts, you’re wrong.

If you believe that electromagnetism and not gravity is the principal large-scale binding force of the Cosmos, you’re wrong.

If you believe that the laws of physics are different on Earth than they are in space, you’re wrong.

If you believe that invoking a conspiracy to dismiss a telling lack of evidence for a crank theory is logically valid, you’re wrong.

If you believe that human evolution was influenced by ancient astronauts from the stars, you’re probably wrong.

If you believe that the planets Nibiru or Tiamat actually exist and can cause catastrophic disasters on Earth, you’re wrong.

If you believe that those who don’t believe in the paranormal are in fact deeply afraid of it, you’re wrong.

If I believe that I cannot possibly be wrong about any of the above statements, I’m probably wrong.

    Damn, I missed a lot no? LOL


    • Yo, Skepdude. Thanks for the inspiration. I’ve got a “part II” in the works that I’m going to be posting this Sunday, and maybe more in the future as the ideas come. With pseudoscience, antiscience, and just plain bad science one can never run out of wacky ways for thinking to go awry.
