Do You Know Baloney When You Hear It?

Have to admit, I ate a lot of baloney sandwiches when I was growing up.  Somehow I survived … and learned to eat healthier foods as the years went by.

I also have to confess, I swallowed a whole lot of baloney when I was growing up in faith.

“Baloney:  foolish or deceptive talk; nonsense”

This short video by Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine is a good intro to Carl Sagan’s warning about baloney in the world of beliefs.  If you haven’t seen it, or haven’t watched it in a while, I highly recommend viewing.
