Kickstarter - thINK- a book of incendiary cartoon skepticism

I have no connection with this, except that I saw Polyp speak about it at QEDCon last year.

thINK- a book of incendiary cartoon skepticism


Quote:
56 pages of satire-coated ammunition, waiting to be loaded and aimed at superstition, irrationality and anti-science delusions.
...
Help us make this book of hard-hitting skepticism cartoons a reality...

WHEN REASON HAS FAILED

Fighting irrationality, superstition and psuedo science is one of the most crucial yet underestimated tasks facing us today. Humour is a potent weapon, and when reason has failed, ridicule should step into the ring and deliver some serious blows. Yes to lots of well argued, articulate 'God Delusion' style titles, but let's not forget to just openly take the piss.

The thINK link is not working for me. Humour is indeed potent.
