Classification of Irrational Nonsense

Reader jchai sent in a link to Crispain Jago’s Periodic Table of Irrational Nonsense on Skeptical Monkey. Click to embiggen.

Along the same lines, here’s Jago’s flow-chart of alternative therapy:

  • dutchhobbit

    The alt healing one is hilarious.

  • nazani14

    Trepanation? Good gravy, don’t tell me people are getting this done voluntarily, without having had an injury that caused brain swelling.

  • The Invisible Hand

    Lol, Traditional Bollocks and New Age Bollocks.

    Awesome charts :)

  • Len

    Very handy reference charts.

  • Paul

    Vaccine denial is an alternative therapy like not collecting stamps is a hobby.

  • comrade

    Breaking news: humans are not completely rational.

  • Twinkletoes

    That is quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thank you so much for posting that. :)

  • The Monkey

    Thanks for linking up! Many thanks to Crispian Jago for the periodic table.

    Angel Therapy… now that’s a new one!

  • Frank

    That flow chart is actually a subtle advertisement for Rolfing, isn’t it? It definitely sounds like fun.

  • Lenoxuss

    Pyramidiocy is so incoherent it doesn’t even have a non-joke name. It’s like Time Cube. Basically, it’s just “Oooh, pyramids, special, maybe-aliens-maybe-magic, woo-woo…”

    I’m curious: Why is Psychics not the Psi color?
