ISBN: 1573920967

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.

Internationally acclaimed science writer Martin Gardner contributes a regular column titled 'The Skeptical Eye' for the journal Skeptical Inquiry. Weird Water and Fuzzy Logic is a collection of this material, with a wide range of topics including the 'Klingon' artificial language, science blunders by famous writers, recent attacks on the Big Bang theory, and the influence of The Course of Miracles and Transcendental Meditation.
