A Collection of Strange Beliefs, Amusing Deceptions, and Dangerous Delusions

From Abracadabra to Zombies


Note: (11/27/2012): I'm currently spending most of my spare time on writing projects, so I must decline any offers to engage in lengthy arguments over the subjects I've written about.)

Send your comments, with the word "feedback" in the subject line, to skepdic338ATgmail.com (replace AT with @) All mail to this address without 'feedback' in the subject line is spam-filtered to the trash folder.

I am NOT accepting feedback on the following entries: Amway, climate-change deniers, Landmark Forum, Myers-Briggs, and Substance Abuse Treatments. (The responses have become too monotonous, self-serving, and repetitive. For those who are interested, there are plenty of posts already from readers on each of these topics.)

For several years, I posted reader comments and my replies to them. I have not removed comments unless asked to do so, even though I probably don't agree with all of my own comments that I've posted over the past decade or more. I now post comments or replies only occasionally. On the off chance that your comments might be posted, if you do not want your name and/or comments posted, please say so.

I am especially grateful to those careful readers who notify me of my errors.

Due to a large backlog of mail, I am unable to respond personally to all inquiries.

For those who wish to correct me of my grievous blunders, please read my FAQ and the Introduction to The Skeptic's Dictionary first (especially the part about this being a book of skeptical arguments and references).
