Them:  Doing X is wrong!  I have scientific evidence that X causes all these bad things!  Everyone should listen to me because SCIENCE!

Me: That citation is an opinion piece published on a personal web page, not science published in a peer-reviewed journal.  Also, it doesn’t support your contention.

Them: Who cares about evidence?  I know I’m right!


About Christine

I'm a full-time mother to two kids, an ex-lawyer, a breastfeeding counselor, a skeptic, and (to steal a phase from Penn & Teller) a "science cheerleader." You can reach me through my Facebook page.
