Synopsis This is a fascinating look of some of the most common unfounded beliefs - and their alternative scientific explanations. Do you know somebody who swears by the reliability of psychics? That homeopathy really can cure all ill? Or that no one has ever set foot on the moon? "50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True" shows readers how to find a gently persuasive way of steering people away from unfounded beliefs, bogus cures, and conspiracy theories. But author and long-time sceptic Guy Harrison is not out simply to debunk these theories and beliefs; instead, wherever possible, he presents alternative scientific explanations, which in most cases are even more fascinating than the wildest speculation. Stressing the excitement of scientific discovery and the legitimate mysteries and wonder inherent in reality, this volume invites readers to share the joys of rational thinking and the sceptical approach to evaluating our extraordinary world.
