Pirates, Pyramids, and Papyrus

Skeptoid 3

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


We live in a modern Dark Age. Faith in pseudoscience is rampant, and belief in the supernatural permeates society at every level. Critical thinking is key to understanding what is truly useful, and what merely distracts from progress and development. This book gives you the tools to sort the solid from the silly, and answer such questions as:

Can frogs and fish really fall out of the sky?

Is a vast pirate treasure buried in an elaborately engineered Money Pit on an island in Nova Scotia?

Did an angel save the British Expeditionary Force from the Germans in WWI?

Do the world's elite secretly govern from Bohemian Grove?

Is the world's largest ancient pyramid located in Bosnia?

Does the Min Min Light actually chase travelers through Australia's outback?
Author Brian Dunning hosts the Skeptoid podcast at In this book, he casts his skeptical eye on fifty paranormal, cultural, and supernatural beliefs that are at best foolish, and at worst, deadly.
