Deepity: Any statement that has two meanings one of which is true but superficial and another that is profound but meaningless.
This word was coined by Dan Dennett at the AAI conference in Burbank this year. I feel quite possessive about it because his talk was one of the highspots in the symposium on science that RDFRS sponsored, and Liz Cornwell initiated and organized on our behalf.
