From QUED: In Defense of Science: An Interview with NCSE’s Eugenie Scott
Posted Aug 23 2012 7:37pm
KQED is a public radio (and TV) station in the San Francisco bay area. One show on KQED that covers science is QUEST . A few weeks ago, QUEST had an article on their blog: Doubt and Denialism: Vaccine Myths Persist in the Face of Science . As you can imagine, it gathered exactly the sort of attention it was discussing: comments showing vaccine myths persisting in the face of science. There are nearly 220 comments. Quest has followed up with another good article on science and how it is often ignored: In Defense of Science: An Interview with NCSE’s Eugenie Scott . Eugenie Scott pulls a lot of examples from the evolution discussions to illustrate how science is often ignored or misused.
