Crackpot Theories Unlimited 
I have a number of crackpot theories about why the universe works the way that it does. The collection assembled here is but a small fraction of the vast crackpottery that is my brain, but I hope they will edify and amuse.

Evangelicals and Crackpot Science 
ABSTRACT: Because of the tension which has developed between the scientific and the evangelical communities in the past century and a half, Bible believers are often (rightly or wrongly) suspicious of the discoveries and theorizing of modern science. This has led to a rather widespread attraction to theories viewed as crackpot by scientists and other educated people. Some examples are discussed and strategies proposed to protect Christians from looking unnecessarily foolish before the watching world.

Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy 
As an astronomer, teacher, lecturer and all-around science junkie, I am exposed to all sorts of people and their ideas about what goes on in the sky around them. I have been delighted to find that most people are very curious about the night (and day!) sky, but unfortunately a lot of misinformation is spread about astronomy. Sometimes this information is just plain silly, but many times it makes just enough sense that people believe it. Sometimes the news media help spread these ideas (like the one that you can spin or stand an egg on end during the Vernal Equinox), sometimes it's TV and sometimes it's plain old word of mouth, but the misinformation does get around. I feel obliged to right these wrongs when I can. The Bad Astronomy web pages are devoted to airing out myths and misconceptions in astronomy and related topics. At the moment, I have no desire to tackle here such thorny topics as astrology, alternate views of the universe that are clearly in contradiction to observations, and the like. I may add something like that eventually, when I have more time (translation: "never").

The Crank Physics Detection Guide 
This guide shortly describes criteria used by scientists in this domain to distinguish nonsense from science. Note that the criteria have very different character. Some of them are sufficient to reject the whole concept, some minor style questions. Note that some of them are specific for theoretical physics - in other domains they don't work.
