Before you go around scaring yourself and your children, here is a great chart of all the “The Periodic Table Of Irrational Nonsense”. To get the full interactive experience, go to the link, get a cup of coffee and prepare to snort coffee on your computer screen:
What is great about this chart, it gathers together all the “woo, woo” elements of the world and organizes them by blocks and easy to understand categories. Each “element” has a symbol, a woo number and a name. There are four blocks: Fruit Loop Block, Credulous block, delusion block and quack block. Quack block is divided into “Traditional bollocks and New Age Bollocks”.
For example : Rg is past life regression, “planting false memories into people’s brains for a bit of a laugh”
Not since National Lampoon‘s map of the world, have I had so much fun. You may remember, Fjord Mustang, in Hawaii Komon-i-wanna-lay you, just some examples. If Google Earth could only put that up again in an interactive form, I would be satisfied.
It’s often times ok to deride organized religion and give all the spiritual, modern day quackery and anything from Asia a pass, I say, have a laugh on all of them particularly now that it’s Halloween time.
