In the most recent issue's "Bitch List": The Pinky Show. I haven't watched any of the online episodes yet, but find their description exciting ("present and clarify marginalized perspectives, obscure histories, suppressed knowledge, and misinformation") and the diary entry regarding Mokapu as well as the more recent entry regarding skepticism and education have me wanting more. They had me at Sagan:
“The business of scepticism is to be dangerous. Scepticism challenges established institutions. If we teach everybody, including, say, high school students, habits of sceptical thought, they will probably not restrict their skepticism to UFOs, aspirin commercials, and 35,000-year-old channelees. Maybe they’ll start asking awkward questions about economic, or social, or political, or religious institutions. Perhaps they’ll challenge the opinions of those in power. Then where would we be?”
Also loving the quote from blog contributor Daisy, who says "When most people say schooling, what they really mean is mind-numbing training. Dogs need training. Human beings need intellectual, ethical, cultural, and spiritual development; none of which happens as a result of being trained."
Amen to that.
Additional kudos to Bitch for their article giving 5 steps to distinguishing between real science and bogus "study" reports in the mainstream media. A rundown below, click the link for full text.
