The Bible Code
If you don't know what this is, it's the belief there is a hidden code in the Bible predicting all sorts of historical events. I say this is doubly irrational - not only believing the bible has value beyond some interesting stories, cultural relevance, and SOME positive morality, but also believing there's a hidden code there. First of all, a book that size you can find virtually anything this way (it's been done with Moby Dick.)
This brings up another point - I'm really getting tired of channels where they should know better (History, Discovery, Learning Channels) including pseudoscience - though the History Channel seems to be the worst offender - lots of Jesus stuff, aliens, psychics, bigfoot, etc. Is it just ignorance on their part (I don't think so), or is REAL science/history in this country just that unpopular and bullshit so popular? That's just sad.
