scientific literacy

There have been two interesting blog posts on scientific literacy recently on the bps digest. The first addresses how to present findings in ways that minimizes a ‘scientific impotence response,’ where people discard scientific findings because they are incompatible with their world view by resorting to claiming that a certain topic cannot be properly studied scientifically. The second post discusses how one can try to present findings effectively in order to debunk pseudo-scientific beliefs.
