This cartoon illustrates a point I have been trying to make a lot this week, about the importance of information literacy. It comes via the Union of Concerned Scientists 2013 cartoon contest. Click through to see several more cartoons on the same theme of science denialism.

      Your essay is mere assertion, without evidence or argument, and moreover is ridiculously short – you were told to write between 500 and 1,000 words.

      0/10 – see me.

        Indeed. Moreover, either Mr. Roberts is unaware that scientific understandings are constantly being overhauled as we improve our understanding and gather new data, or he really means that it will be rejected within years. The latter is something that people have been saying about evolution since even before Darwin. yet the evidence in support of it keeps mounting.

        But perhaps Mr. Roberts posted this as a joke, just to illustrate why one should not get their scientific understanding from Twitter?
