DUMBTH

"Dumbth" is a word invented by comedian Steve Allen in his book by that name. Dumbth is the combination of ignorance and stupidity that often seems to rule the world. His book has many witty true stories of dumbth, but also suggests ways to reduce your own level of dumbth. In this section of my site, I'm going to give examples of both dumbth and anti-dumbth.

DUMBTH: In 1995, the CIA inadvertently sold 25 laptops bearing top-secret information. -- Harper's magazine

ANTI-DUMBTH: Here are sites devoted to skepticism. Skepticism doesn't mean automatically rejecting anything unusual, because once in a great while, something unusual but true is discovered. To get a healthy dose of skepticism, visit:

The Skeptics Society, where I'm Senior Scientist.

The Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, where I'm Technical Consultant.
