Abstract

We briefly comment on three astronomical pseudosciences - astrology, creationism, and space aliens - which are accepted in North America by a significant fraction of the population. We list articles, books, websites, and organizations that provide useful resources which teachers, students, and the public can use to deal with such beliefs.
