Do You Believe in Dragons?

Most people believed in Dragons.  Well, today, most people believe in some sort of dragon. Most people fully accept paranormal and pseudoscientific claims without critique as they are promoted by the mass media or by religious authorities.

Conspiracy theory in the middle east is prominent and sometimes almost paranormal and ridiculous, but widely accepted.  Also, we have a lot of religious concepts that are pseudoscientific, and they don’t even have a strong religious root.  For example, the medication through the Turba AlHussaineya, or the belief in sending letters or talking to “Imam Mahdi”.  You will see some Muslims wiping their bodies against holy places like Kabaa or scholars’ graves believing in their super healing powers.

Here Be Dragons is a documentary that 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.
