Welcome to Science Thinking, a project that is dedicated to the promotion of science and the use of science thinking in everyday decision-making. Founders Steve and Diana Gordon bring a combined experience of over 30 years as science educators to this project.
What is "Science Thinking?"
"Science Thinking" uses the methods of science to distinguish truth from fiction. Will taking vitamin C cure your cold? Is it dangerous to live near power lines? Is it possible to speak to the dead? Can a psychic predict your future? Are doctors hiding natural cures from you?
We are faced with questions like these on a daily basis. Our friends and neighbors, the media and mass-marketers make claims that sound reasonable but may not be true. Sometimes, the temptation to believe can overcome reason, and you may find yourself purchasing modern-day snake oil.
"Science Thinking" teaches you to recognize fake claims before you make a decision that will adversely affect your well-being, your pocketbook, or both.
