The Richard Dawkins Foundation has released its first RDF TV video, The Baloney Detection Kit, in which Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine describes the ten point skepticism kit:

RDF TV is off to a great start! This is a nice little kit for examining claims using a scientific and skeptical toolbox, together with good commentary from Shermer.

This kind of reasoning is a very important skill to practice, especially with the all too commonplace "baloney" being slung at consumers and other targets touting miracle supplements, magnet cures, other alternative medicines, free energy, intelligent design, etc.
