Last Minute Christmas Shopping Anyone?

So Christmas is only a week away and if you are looking for a quick gift for that “special someone” I have a wonderful suggestion. Take a ride over to your local bookstore and mosey on over to the science section, the book you’re looking for is The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan.

The book teaches scientific method, skepticism and critical thinking. It explains the difference on what is viewed as legitimate science and what is viewed as pseudoscience. Just a few topics covered in this collection of 25 essays are alien abductions, astrology, channeling, crop circles, demons, electromagnetism, ESP, Roswell, UFOs and extraterrestrials.

So if you know someone new to skepticism, someone who loves science or someone who is REALLY into the paranormal this is the perfect gift, hell this is a perfect gift for anyone.
