Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
At a time when popular knowledge of basic science has sunk to a new low and books promoting angels, parapsychology, and bizarre forms of medicine and healing outnumber skeptical books by more than a thousand to one, Americans need a voice of sanity.

Weird Water and Fuzzy Logic introduces readers to mind-wrenching probability paradoxes, recent attacks on the Big Bang Theory, and Marianne Williamson's success promoting The Course of Miracles, which is said to have been channeled by Jesus. Other columns address E-prime, a language that omits all forms of the verb "to be"; Norman Vincent Peale's beliefs in the paranormal; repressed memory therapy; science blunders by famous writers; the influence of Transcendental Meditation on the career of Doug Henning; a critique of "Klingon" and other artificial languages; and much more.

Book Description: Prometheus Books, 1996. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Never before has American education in science sunk so low, or the flood of books about bogus science risen so high. Books discrediting the paranormal are outnumbered by those promoting astrology, angels, parapsychology, bizarre forms of medicine and healing, the prophecies of Nostradamus, the secrets of the Great Pyramid, attacks on evolution, and scores of similar follies. Martin Gardner is among those science writers who believe that this tide of irrationality needs to be stemmed by informed writing. For years Gardner has authored the "Notes of a Fringe Watcher" column for Skeptical Inquirer magazine. Weird Water and Fuzzy Logic: More Notes of a Fringe Watcher is a collection of Gardner's columns, to which are added thirty recent reviews of books that deal with science, philosophy, theology, and the paranormal.
