Why is a scientific mindset superior to competing epistemological frameworks? Science is far more than a body of knowledge and facts. It is far more than the myopic stereotype of donning lab coats, shaking beakers and peering through microscopes. It truly is a way of thinking about everything.
A discussion about the recent overuse of the word bullshit in science and skeptic journalism. Must we really have to just call everything "bullshit" this often now in journalism? Is there no more room to use sophisticated, varied and non-inflammatory language to make a point? Does it not also affect the credibility of an otherwise important message when resorting to fifty cent words? Or is this simply a clickbait, sensational and opportunistic journalistic approach?
