At last week’s Boston Skeptics in the Pub, I hosted a trivia night. The winner’s got the opportunity to name today’s Afternoon Inquisition, so courtesy of the team “Neosporin â€“ It’s Topical”* I give you:
Imagine that you are suddenly visited by a time traveler from the future. This traveler presents you with an item or a bit of information that confirms that something we currently consider to be woo-woo has, in fact, been found to be true by future science.
Which woo-woo idea would you like this time traveler to present to you, and what device or piece of evidence would you want to receive as confirmation?
*I offered a prize for best team name, explaining that I liked puns and topical jokes. So there you go.
