Professional Debunker

by Dr. Abby Hafer

Welcome to the home page of

My mission is to debunk pseudoscience, rot, lies, groundless assertions, preposterous allegations, conspiracy theories and all other such nonsense having to do with denying science.

I’m Dr. Abby Hafer. I am a scientist, public speaker, author and educator. I really enjoy debunking bad science and explaining good science.

I firmly believe that when science gets pushed into the political arena, that people must use arguments that will work in the political arena. That means that they must be short, easy to understand, and easy to repeat, while containing bullet-proof science. Call me old-fashioned, but I insist that my arguments be true as well. I also think that humor is a great way to puncture bad arguments.

For this reason, my talks are described as “a combination of TED talk and standup comedy”, or “standup with slides”.

If you are interested in these things, then I hope that you enjoy this website. If you want me to speak to your group, please contact me. If you want to interview me, please contact me.
