  • SCIENTIFIC LITERACY FOR THE CITIZEN SCIENTIST

    Hi all
    Not sure where to post this manual, maybe there shoud be a category/subforum called "usefull info/links", "nice to know" or just a open for all stuff category ?
    The doc. also have a nice CRAP test , attatched so to learn how to distinct sience from pseudosience, and also a number of good links/references IMO
    Anyhow here is the abstract cut/paste from pdf/doc link http://cru.cahe.wsu.edu/CEPublicatio...00E/EM100E.pdf
    Quote:
    By Linda Chalker-Scott, Catherine H.Daniels
    Abstract
    Knowledge of the scientific method leads to scientifically literate citizens who can read science articles and evaluate the quality of the information presented; it allows a person to distinguish science from pseudoscience and can help avoid wasting time, money, and resources on poor ideas or, worse, scams.
    The scientific method is also useful for anyone who wishes to develop their own experiment program, whether that’s in their garden, kitchen, or office.

    Enjoy

    cheers

    Ande, I'll gladly check this out. However, all that presumes literacy, numeracy, capacity to discern/formulate a coherent thought, et al. Here in Amerikaka (sic) all that is anathema to the dominant fraction of the fundamentally deranged electorate and intolerable in government and public discourse.
