PseudoSkeptic vs. True Skeptic, what type of skeptic are you? read on to find out.

NB: All pseudo-skeptics will claim to be true skeptics.

Pseudo-skeptics

Are often typically disbelievers - i.e. they are firmly entrenched in believing "no" about certain things. Although they may "claim" that they are open to new information, they typically react with strongly unfriendly if not hostile criticisms when their beliefs and assumptions are challenged by new ideas and evidence.

Pseudo-skeptics typically make extreme statements. They will sometimes categorically state that something is impossible, or they will make sweeping false statements such as "no evidence exists" or the experiments are "all flawed"; or even the scientists in question are engaged in "pseudo-science."

Probably the most abusive of pseudo-skeptics tactics is to denigrate and dismiss carefully documented (and replicated observations in real life as being "anecdotes" and being "worthless" as potential scientific evidence. This is biased dismissal, even if the evidence was collected carefully using established standards in mainstream science, the findings are typically ignored or rejected as not having any scientific value.

The show caused quite a stir in the UK and was banned from television, but where did the idea come from?
