It is not necessarily “badastronomy. True, some examples of truly bad
astronomy have been included here. But much “weird” astronomy is still “good”
astronomy. It just does not fit well with what is official. A bright object near the Sun
, a fast-moving blob of nebulosity in the night sky, a meteor that makes a “
swishing” sound as it crosses the sky, lightning seen on the Moon or changing
patterns on Mars, celllike structures found in meteorites, or apparent signs of life
on the Martian surface ...

If logic teaches the difference between good and bad thinking it can not be a pure
science. A science tells us about things, but does not discuss whether they are
good or bad. Astronomy for instance. Again, logic cannot be an art. It does not
teach one to do anything. It can't make anybody think. You may say that a child
may be taught to think. But although the teaching may aid the child in thinking, yet

astronomer Phil Plait, in his Bad Astronomy blog, outlined the lines of “evidence”
from the show ...

kinds ; on one hand, a virtual withdrawal of the Holy Scriptures behind an
ornamental screen of religious books and formularies ; on the other, suspicions
