OK. I know I’ve posted today. However, Dr. PZ Myers, a biologist at the University of Minnesota-Morris, has just posted a wonderful
shredding critique of a supposedly scientific article. He points out all the red flags and eviscerates chastises the author. Dr. Myers even makes a point of finding out the author’s affiliations and how the paper got published in the first place. This is a wonderful example of critical thinking when it comes to resources. It’d be lovely if every undergraduate student could learn from just this one example.
