The Venn Diagram of Irrational Nonsense



The Venn Diagram of Irrational Nonsense


  1. Can’t see Neoliberal Economics there… probably should be at the intersection of Religious and Pseudoscientific… 🙂

    • Heh heh heh… good point, SM… 😀

      Religious/Pseudoscientific would be ideal.

      The weird thing is that when I first saw that Venn Diagramme (Facebook?), there were several categories I had never even heard of.

      Kinda ironic really; our science is delving into the very basic unit of creation; we can see back to the first 100,000 years of the Big Bang (to the microwave background boundary); understand the workings of the human brain… and yet people search for “knowledge” in the most unlikely places.

      Is our yearning for faith-based belief so strong?

      “Angels”? “Ear candles”?! *facepalm*

    • Good observation and reasoning Spacemonkey.

      This Venn diagram could also be used as a political compass, I’d say National and Act would feel right at home in the intersection of Religious, Quackery and Pseudoscientific Bollocks.
