  •  Thank you so much for this. (0+ / 0-)

    I come from a family steeped in science and am myself trained in science. I have a beloved niece who has somehow avoided learning critical thinking and believes in all manner of bizarre hooey. These crazy belief systems cause her all sorts of trouble, and have cost her an awful lot of money as well. They strain her relationships and cause her unnecessary stress and negatively affect her health.

    Hopefully, these two links will help me to get through to her. I've tried gentle persuasion, giving her books on how to think critically, etc., but the mindset is pretty durable. And unfortunate.
