Fact, Opinion and Annoyance

Surprising? Nah, but still annoying.

Scientific illiteracy all the rage among the glitterati

This is exactly why I have little patience with celebrities who latch on to some scientific cause and shout it from the rooftops.  Be it a disease or the environment, they inevitably get it wrong because they are not educated.  That doesn’t mean you necessarily need a degree, but you at least need to understand terminology and the scientific method.  In the end, they hurt the cause they support because they pass around a bunch of disinformation.

So let’s make this easy, shall we?  I won’t tell you how to act, or pose for pictures, or sing, and you don’t tell me what has been “proven” by science.  That statement alone shows that you have no understanding of the scientific process.
