We are moving our normal second Saturday Get Together back in a week to host a special event. This Saturday come join us for a special Skeptics in the Pub at ConClave!
I came across this simply amazing piece of woo-filled-tripe (tripe-filled-woo?) today. It’s from a website I’ve never heard of before called the European Union Times. They had posted an article that I’m still having a hard time figuring out whether it’s satire. The headline reads: “380 American Rebels Reported Killed In Michigan Battle.” This article is a complete “cut and paste” from a site called Whatdoesitmean.com. Which is a home of genuine nutballery.
Last week, Paleontologists were required to respond to claims that dinosaurs were actually semi-aquatic creatures and stayed in water to support their great size. A theory that was thoroughly and completely debunked in the 1960s.
Can computer software detect lies at a better rate than people? Scientific Anerican reports that researchers at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York claim that their software, which analyzes eye movement can determine a lie with 82.5% accuracy.
This new conspiracy theory is a very good example of just how detached it’s believers can be. The author goes through a long and convoluted story on how the music industry is, in fact, a secret society of Illuminati and Satan worshipers. The music industry’s goal is simple. They lure innocent people with talent to Hollywood, convince them to sign a contract, then drain their life force until such a time that they are no longer useful. They then sacrifice then to their demon overlords. Makes perfect sense, right?
