How to Fake a Moon Landing by Darryl Cunningham

How to Fake a Moon Landing
by Darryl Cunningham [001.9 Cun]

As the subtitle to this book says, this is a very straight-forward book about "exposing the myths of science denial". Cunningham uses the graphic novel format to tackle 8 hot button topics, all of which have been in the news in recent years. Each of these topics has a great deal of verifiable scientific evidence, accumulated over years, even decades, of testing an observation, to lend support to views that have somehow become political and religious hot potatoes -- each and every topic's facts have people who are diametrically opposed to accepting the evidence placed in front of them. Cunningham doesn't suffer fools gladly, and uses humor and sarcasm to shine a light on such subjects as: The Moon Landing Hoax, Homeopathy, Chiropractic treatments, the MMR Vaccination Scandal, Evolution, Fracking, Climate Change and the basic category of Science Denial in general. This book should appeal to anyone with an open mind, who prefers the scientific method of testing an d observation over blind acceptance of dogma. -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Scott's Reviewer Profile and more of his reviews ]
