Skeptoid 4: Astronauts, Aliens, and Ape-Men
We live in a modern Dark Age. Faith in pseudoscience is rampant, and belief in the supernatural permeates society at every level. Critical thinking is key to understanding what is truly useful, and what merely distracts from progress and development. This book gives you the tools to sort the solid from the silly, and answer such questions as:
Did Stalin actually try to create an army of half-ape, half-man super soldiers?
Were the Apollo astronauts followed by a UFO all the way to the moon?
Was Mozart really murdered by Antonio Salieri?
Is there such a thing as ball lightning?
Can martial arts masters kill without touching?
Is an alien buried in the local cemetery in Aurora, Texas?
Author Brian Dunning hosts the Skeptoid podcast at http://skeptoid.com. In this book, he casts his skeptical eye on fifty paranormal, cultural, and supernatural beliefs that are at best foolish, and at worst, deadly.
