I wrote a book called "Belief in Science and the Science of Belief." Here's a blurb about it:

"Our selective abandonment of reason to belief compromises our fundamental decision-making capacity, both in small personal matters and in critical public policy. This book will give you the insights and techniques you need to apply scientific rigor to your everyday decision-making. It will help you to understand how to verify facts, avoid logical pitfalls and belief-driven biases, and use fact-based reasoning to make important moral and ethical decisions. But more than that, it will give you a deep sense of awe and wonder to be a part of the incredible universe revealed by fact."

It is available as a free download (for now) through the following link:


I'm hoping that some of you will not only read it but will be inspired to participate in discussions about it. I've set up a discussion forum at:


I invite you to collaborate to make this project even better.

Thanks much everyone!
