The Seven Warning Signs of Bogus Science

Robert L. Park, professor of physics at the University of Maryland at College Park and the director of public information for the American Physical Society, compiled his Seven Warning Signs of Bogus Science in an attempt to help federal judges detect scientific nonsense. He’s also the author of Voodoo Science: The Road From Foolishness to Fraud. Another great book on critical evaluation of “scientific” claims is Carl Sagan’s The Demon-Haunted World : Science as a Candle in the Dark, and of course, there’s always The Amazing Randi.
