How to spot intellectual bullshit
As a fitting addendum to my previous blog, I thought I'd mention that I'm a big fan of Eddie Current. If you're not familiar with him, he does some very funny, incisive religious satire videos on Youtube. I also follow his blog on MySpace, and he made this fantastic chart on which I think many "alternative medicines" would fit very nicely. You have to read the whole blog to get the context for the rogue physicist, but it's still great stuff.
