Intelligence versus Rationality

A session at SkeptiCamp Chicago 2014

Saturday 5th April, 2014

3:40pm to 3:40pm (CST)

Why do so many brilliant people subscribe to preposterous theories?

There is a difference between intelligence and rationality. It often requires creative genius to invent a theory and to show that the theory is self-consistent, but it takes rationality to show that the theory is probably true.
