Debunking myths


Author Michael Shermer, the founder of “The Skeptic Society” refutes psuedoscience and supernaturalism in “Why Do People Believe Weird Things?” The book is packed with cases of weird beliefs, which are debunked by Shermer’s scientific rebuttal.
Shermer’s skeptical eye explores Noah’s Ark, Holocaust denial, alien abduction, near-death experiences, modern witch hunts, cults and 25 fallacies.
The Korean translation is suitable for superstitious Koreans who rely heavily on fortunetellers for making big decisions.
Translated by Ryu Un and published by Bada, the 571-page book is 18,000 won.
