Trivialising Rationality

The fact that this “little gem” can be discussed by “the good folks at Rational Skepticism” just shows how lightly some people take rationality and expect to receive Pay Pal donations for their “running costs”! Snake-oil salesmen, just like Deepak Chopra in fact. It’s OK because, like the BHA questionnaire, it’s just a bit of fun apparently, for entertainment purposes only. (Hat tip to PsyJr on Facebook).

I’ve probably said this before, but the one good thing about the Richard Dawkins Foundation, apart from the jokes, is the fact that between Reason and Science there is an ampersand, so clearly they do know that science is not reason, and neither is one a superset of the other. A start.
