Scientific Literacy

There’s an excellent post at Neurologica about the challenges those of us advocating science and rationale thought are up against. It’s hard to make a reasoned argument using scientific evidence when your audience doesn’t understand science, doesn’t want to understand it, and is more likely to trust what an acquaintance says than scientific evidence.

I’m a bit late with my own post this week, but I’ll try to have something up by the weekend.
