Came across this post on Medium. The author, Ethan Siegel, proposes two questions to determine if you are scientifically literate – and they are not one of those quizzes that ask about science knowledge. The questions are:
Are you aware of what the enterprise of science is?
Do you have an appreciation for how scientific knowledge, understanding and its applications benefit humanity?
He goes on to explain what a yes answer means. In sort it means you can’t just dismiss facts/evidence you don’t agree with – as in anti-vaxers, climate change deniers etc … A good read.
