There are a few islands of reason in the sea of chaos that is social media. Twitter was fun when I signed up one especially snowy winter, but since the 2016 election campaign started to heat up, it has turned into a swamp. So many of the posts show little to no sign of critical thinking, cognitive ability, or problem solving ability.|
I may not agree with astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson on everything, but there is one noteworthy comment he has made on two very different TV talk shows in the past year or two: "Americans are scientifically illiterate." The way he brought it into the conversation suggests it's one of his pet peeves, and understandably so.
