The Venn Diagram of Irrational Nonsense

| »

Crispian Jago once again shows us how it’s done (classifying irrational nonsense, that is):

“The Venn Diagram of Irrational Nonsense” (by Crispian Jago)
[full size (984×1075)]

I think I want a poster of this even more than of his “Periodic Table of Irrational Nonsense”. Though, I have to quibble with some of the overlapping (or lack thereof) – isn’t all pseudo-medical quackery a part of pseudoscience by definition, with all the bullshit explanations drawn up to bolster them (and excuse their invariable failure)? And Christianity’s “faith healing” component should arguably grant it a spot right by Scientology’s side. But I’m just nitpicking at this point.

Seriously, posters. Make them happen.
