Extreme opponents of GM foods know the least science, but think they know the most

A recent study compared the public's scientific literacy with their attitudes on GM foods.The results showed that "as the extremity of opposition increased, objective knowledge went down, but self-assessed knowledge went up."The results also suggest that, in terms of policy efforts to boost scientific literacy, education about a given topic alone isn't going to be enough. None In 1999, the social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger published a study that uncovered a darkly comical cogn...

But is this unique cross-species relationship also reflected at a deeper level, in the workings of the canine brain? A recent study in Learning and Behavior suggests so, finding that highly trained dogs have a dedicated neural area for processing human faces, separate from the area involved in processin...

There are two kinds of identity politics. One is good. The other, very bad.

Freedom is speech is being eradicated on college campuses in favor of identity politics and "snowflake" culture.
