The Science of Self-Deception


 With an oil spill crisis the likes of which the world has never seen floating blackly towards our shores,  education under assault by misguided moralists , and health care, economy and climate change hot topics in the daily news, it’s increasingly evident that our ability to think critically and to distinguish real science from pseudoscience in the onslaught of information speeding our way via email, twitter, Facebook, RSS and various other media is, well…critical

Dr. Michael Shermer , author and founder of Skeptic Magazine, explains “The Pattern of Self-Deception” that can blind us to the facts of a matter, during a recently published TED Talk.  It’s definitely time to start taking knowledge seriously,  before our penchant for self-deception leads to our self-destruction.
