Reason Stick’s Venn Diagram of Irrational Nonsense

Looks like Crispian Jago has got a new name for his blog, and a little redesign to spruce up his posts – and there’s a little diagram making the rounds that is very amusing:

 The curiously revered world of irrational nonsense has seeped into almost every aspect of modern society and is both complex and multifarious. Therefore rather than attempt a comprehensive taxonomy, I have opted instead for a gross oversimplification and a rather pretty Venn Diagram.

Some of the comments are debating the categorisations (I agree with one comment about science denialism also including global warming) – so do hop over if you want to give feedback, and check out the rest of his brilliant blog.
