Science Made Stupid

Here's a website that has an abridged form of the book Science Made Stupid. If you haven't heard of it before, it really lives up to its name.

Years of study in musty classrooms were prerequisite to obtaining even a dim, incoherent knowledge of science. Today, all that has changed: a dim, incoherent knowledge of science is available to anyone.

Read the whole thing.
