"The Scientific Method"

Unfortunately, The American Scholar is not online, so you’ll have to pick up a copy at Borders, but I recommend you do so and give a look to the spring 2004 issue’s “Scientific Method” column by Natalie Angier. She explains her reaction when biologists approach her and urge her to teach people about evolution. Aside from its rather lame humor, I think her response is right on target–but you’ll have to read it to see.
