Format: Paperback
This book is a good book to read to get a sense about how we are fooled. Lindskoog brings from the simpliest way are fooled vis a vis hide and seek we learned as a child to some of the most vitriolic falshood perpetrated for the sake of self agrandizment. I recommend Amazon remove the 2 star review as they give no sense of the content of the book so one can make an inteligent choice. It is obvious the prejudice of the other reviews. Get this book for a fun read!

A good study of frauds but she is a christian theological teacher so you can expect and will see a little trashing of evoloution and science for example on page 26 she states support for the creationist position. Referring to things such as Darwinism and Evoloutionism these are only words that creationists use. Quoted: "reporters tend to assume that anyone who opposes_Darwinism_must believe in a flat earth: it is a battle between religious dogma and scientific fact, but that is malarkey it is usually a battle between religious dogma and cultural dogma masquerading as science." So shes admitting that seperation of church and state should be knocked down...or am I misreading this? Continued: "One does not have to be a fundamentalist to see that popular_Evoloutionism_(in contrast to evoloution) is as morally bankrupt as Marxism."
I cannot understand how someone who writes a book on frauds accepts and supports the fraud that creationism is in that in tries to push its way into the science classroom by any means neccessary, whether its by lying or outright fraud. I must mention that Evoloutionism is a creationist-invented term that scientists do not use, creationists use it to refer to ALL sciences (cosmology, geology, palentology) not just biology the definition may of been different back when this book was published but I highly doubt it since creationism IS religion and does not change much. Her argument is a straw man in that she is purposely misrepresenting the position of scientists there are no evoloutionists or darwinists anymore. Darwinism at best was a blending of the theory of natural selection and racist ideas of the early 1900s which was done by Herbert Spenser and not Darwin which has gone the way of the dinosaur.
I still give it three stars because I find the religious overtones, support of creationism, and the use of the bible references at the end (a book full of things that are wrong) to be a little dissonant, however it still can be a good read.

It is amusing and surprising to discover all these falsehoods. Our gullibility knows no ends. Read and enjoy. I doubt you will believe some of these fakes actually happened.

I never fail to be fascinated by the ease with which people of traditional religious faiths manifest Hypocracy. Ms. Lindskoog is obviously such a person. Her book on frauds and "malarkey" might have been believable if she wasn't Judeo-Christocentric and previously employed by a Seminary. You can't attack "fraud and malarkey," when you yourself are a believer in things which cannot be proven by Science. If you live in a glass house, you shouldn't throw stones.

How can a person compare malarkey and frauds by comparison to the story of Adam and Eve? Taken literally this is one of the greatest fairy tales of all times. Very unobjective thinking.
