Combating Pseudoscience

The study of religious or heroic legends and tales. One constant rule of mythology is that whatever happens amongst the gods or other mythical beings was in one sense or another a reflection of events on earth. Recorded myths and legends, perhaps preserved in literature or folklore, have an immediate interest to archaeology in trying to unravel the nature and meaning of ancient events and traditions.

A sadly relevant article...

Too bad the nuttier members of this forum didn't learn this during their formative years...

Critical thinking is no longer taught and many that once had it are lost to the masses because the falsehoods are easier....

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

You mean o tell me that the third building isn't evidence that 9/11 wasn't an "inside job?"
Or at the least an expected thing?

I knew someone who evacuated from Building #7. They were told to leave shortly after debris falling from the towers started fires in Building #7 and she recounted a rather harrowing tale of dodging debris as they ran towards Vesey street. As they were IRS workers they headed for the nearby IRS Manhattan Headquarters building on Church Street.
But the building was on fire and burned all day before collapsing.

Please don't tell me you are one of those Truther morons?

I am always open to "a good story, well told."

And apparently to shitty stories, poorly told as well.
