It seems sometimes, okay often, that critical thinking skills are nearly obsolete in this culture. People seem to generally accept whatever they hear without any willingness, desire, or ability to examine its validity. This free little documentary looks at how this works with pseudoscience and "woo woo" stuff in the media - it's decidedly skeptic in its perspective.
Here Be Dragons is a video introduction to critical thinking. Most people fully accept paranormal and pseudoscientific claims without critique as they are promoted by the mass media.
Here Be Dragons offers a toolbox for recognizing and understanding the dangers of pseudoscience, and appreciation for the reality-based benefits offered by real science.
Here Be Dragons is written and presented by Brian Dunning, host and producer of the Skeptoid podcast, author of Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena, and Executive Producer of The Skeptologists.
