About this product
- DescriptionPirate, Pyramids, and Papyrus is a close look at 50 myths and mysteries from pop culture that you've probably heard of, and probably believe. Learn the science and the facts behind all those stories you've wondered about since you first read about them as a child. The chapters are adapted from 50 episodes of the popular critical thinking podcast of the same name. Just about every popular myth is explained here: Everything from pararmal stories like the Mothman, shadow people, and Mel's Hole, to conspiracy theories like the Bohemian Club and FEMA prison camps, to popular legends like the Oak Island Money Pit, the Betty and Barney Hill UFO abduction, and frogs and fish raining from the sky.
- Author BiographyBrian Dunning is a science journalist in Southern California. His free weekly podcast Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena began in 2006, taking the underdog side of science and rationality amid the overwhelming majority of noise in the media promoting pseudoscience, alternative anything, and unconditional acceptance of the paranormal. The choice between pseudoscience and science is the choice between the developmental stagnation of the Dark Ages, and progress. Brian takes every opportunity to speak on critical thinking issues at colleges and local groups. In his spare time he enjoys Jeeping in the desert with his family and playing beach volleyball (badly).
