At the recent Republican debate, three out of ten Republican candidates stated that they did not believe in evolution. This reflects a larger ignorance of science. I have a very simple idea to combat the Stoopid for bloggers who don’t think of themselves as ‘science’ bloggers:
Once per week, link to five ‘science’ posts that you found interesting.
I already try to link to science posts often, but on reflection I realize that I don’t manage to do it as often as I sometimes think I do. I was stunned to hear that three of the Republican candidates for President don’t believe in Evolution though I don’t know why I should be surprised when nearly half of Americans also reject it in poll after poll.
As someone who has bemoaned the poor grasp of science by most Americans on more than one occasion I could be doing more to help promote it and so I will. Some of these posts may be little more than link dumps as I often have little to add to the articles in question, but I’ll be picking up the pace a bit just the same.
