Besides my aims to showcase academic research, I am also particularly interested in the role of science in society, and even more interested in ill conceived ideas which interrupt that role. Namely, religion, pseudoscience and all round quackery.
I don't envisage this blog to be a hothouse for science writing on the scale of Pharyngula or NeuroLogica, but I certainly aspire to it.
Thanks & enjoy
