GEO 306 - Science, Pseudoscience and Fraud


2010-2011 Catalog Year

A multi-disciplinary course derived in equal parts from understanding natural phenomena in terms of basic science, unmasking the profound nature of scientific principles and applying them to everyday life. The course will focus on uncovering topics that are ‘messy’ and intellectually complex rather than ones that have ‘right answers’ or are contrived ‘cook book’ experiments. Sub-themes in the course will allow students to experience a scientist’s sense of triumph through rational thinking by exposing specious arguments (pseudoscience) and charlatans (frauds), such as Creationism, Dowsing, Pyramid Power, Astrology, and Living Dinosaurs.

PREREQ: Upper division standing or instructor permission.
