Well thats a leading post title if ever there was one. So what do I mean by what’s at stake? Well if you think about most things that sceptics bang on about it all boils down to evidence, as in an. evidence based approach. We want the stuff that shows that view point X is more accurate than batty belief Y. If te use of evidence was to wain then again, what’s at stake…….well our aquired knowledge really.
Here’s an example of what I mean, it’s an episode of the BBC’s Horizen that has made it’s way to youtube. This particular episode is about the attack on science from some of the more hair brained ideas that are out there. I’ve not yet watched it myself but DutchLiam has wathed most of it and he likes it and I’m going to watch it ASAP. I hope you enjoy it.
