I wrote about this a long time ago, but I thought I would put it in a more accessible and easily consumed video because I feel the message is so important. How do we know if we understand “science” properly? How do we eliminate our own personal bias when it comes to learning new things? How can we tell if what we’re reading is true or not? What makes something a fact? These topics and more are covered in this week’s YouTube video about signs you might be in desperate need of some scientific education. Of course, in the intro, I include the disclaimer that I am no expert myself, even and I’ve still got so much to learn.
In any case, here is the video version of 8 Signs You Might Be Scientifically Illiterate:
Let me know what you thought of this, and scientists out there, feel free to point our mistakes and/or expand on some of these topics I bring up in the video.
