A lot of people like to hand me a lot of pseudoscientific crap. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s simply because I spend a large portion of my time at hippy-art festivals or perhaps it is because I look like someone who would entrench themselves in alt-med quackery (the long hair, the tattoos, all the artsy crafting). Or maybe it’s just that there are a lot of people pushing a lot of wacky ideas. Whatever the case may be, I end up with a lot of promotional flyers promoting pseudoscience and general nutbaggery. This recent handout I acquired promoting the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle filled me with laughter and then horror and then laughter again and then well, it kinda made me hungry. I present it to you, my Skepchick friends for your enjoyment!
Let me say up front that I actually think a vegetarian lifestyle is the way to go and while I don’t adhere to it as much as I would like, I do agree that it is peaceful and beneficial. I just think logic and reason are much more effective at helping people to reach an informed conclusion than manipulation and cheap appeals. But hey, take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.
For fun we could name all the logical fallacies and then maybe we could email Al. Apparently Al is the direct contact to God! Good thing I got this flyer or I would never have known that!
Flyer fun after the fold!
