Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Dr. Lenore Szuchman to talk about pseudoscience and the psychology of false beliefs. Pseudoscience is, by definition, an activity that is being falsely presented as science. Prevagen is “clinically shown” to restore memory loss – and is being sued for false advertising. The vaccine crisis began with a real scientist who falsified his data. And 44% of 18-24-year-olds say that astrology is somewhat or very scientific. Our beliefs are mostly rational – but they are subject to our cognitive biases and mental shortcuts that, while usually helpful, can nevertheless fail us. How do such things as motivated reasoning, logical fallacies, and the confirmation bias misdirect our intelligent evaluation of evidence? Registration is $18 in advance or $22 at the door.
