Martin Gardner and idiot skepticism

May 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

Martin Gardner, 1914 – 2010

Martin Gardner is a worthy figure in the application of skepticism to the endless wave of bad science, exploitations of suggestibility, and confused New Age beliefs. But….

Skepticism of that brand has at best a narrow range of applicability, albeit directed toward the large numbers of frauds stalking this range.

The problem is that these skeptics have almost everything wrong: they are wrong on Darwinism, wrong on human psychology, wrong on occultism, wrong on much of the New Age, wrong on most aspects of religion,….
The list goes on.
This is the skepticism that is critical of ID, ok, but then waffles with Darwinism.
