SCIENCE VS. PSEUDOSCIENCE~ Take this pill! It “boosts” the immune system! It clears-up acne! It has cured cancer! If you’ve ever heard claims like this before, then you’ve heard pseudoscience. In this course, you will learn how to identify non-scientific and pseudoscientific claims and how to distinguish these from real science. We will tackle subjects such as acupuncture, homeopathy, creationism, vaccine-denial and a host of others. You will become a skilled warrior in the “Army of the Rational,” going forth to slay the hydra of pseudoscience wherever and whenever it may raise its ugly head(s). Join us and never be misled again!
