South Park Spoofs “Ghost Hunters”
Posted by mattusmaximus on October 27, 2009
In the spirit of Halloween and skepticism, I shall be posting some things related to both in the days to come. The first is a hilarious spoof of various “ghost hunter” shows by those wacky guys at South Park.
Despite the crudeness & vulgarity of their criticism, the South Park guys aren’t that far off the mark in pointing out the logical fallacy (basically, arguing from ignorance – a LOT of ignorance) committed by these lame-o doofuses who stumble around in the dark, scaring themselves for the cameras. For a more detailed critique of “ghost hunters” and their pseudoscience, see my earlier blog post on the subject.
