Big Picture Science – Skeptic Check: Plotting Along

by Gary Niederhoff on August 15, 2011

It’s been ten years since the fall of the Twin Towers, but some still believe that the attack was an inside job. They’re not the only ones to buy into a conspiratorial view of world events. Others deny President Obama’s American birth… link autism with vaccines… and even claim that the fluo ride in our drinking water is there to control our minds. Is it the truth – or the fringe groups – that are “out there?”

Find out why some tinfoil hat ideas never go away. Also, the roots of rational argument: did our brains evolve to seek the truth… or just win arguments?

It’s Skeptic Check… but don’t take our word for it!

Listen to individual segments here:
Part 1: Anti-climate science “science”
Part 2: The conspiracist underground
Part 3: Reinforcing “truth”
Part 4: Tin foil hats
Part 5: The evolution of rational thinking
