← An Open Letter to Bill Maher on Vaccinations

Dr Benway's Avatar Jump to comment 163 by Dr Benway

AlinMoraru's post is an excellent example of crank magnetism in action:

...Bill Maher is right to question vaccines.

...why are the skeptics so eager to jump on the MSM bandwagon when it comes to 9/11?

...Why is the science in on global warming...

...It seems the AP was a "birther" organization way back in 2004.

"Crank magnetism is the phenomenon in which a person who is a crank in one area very frequently tends to be attracted to crank ideas in other, often unrelated areas."
