The Pseudoscientists Episode 115: Secret Hospital Dance
Sarah and Jack sink deep into the recent debate between Bill Nye the Science Guy and young Earth creationist Ken Ham and discuss the question of whether or not scientists should debate creationists, and also take a look at the alarming prevalence of “tropical” diseases in countries such as the US and Australia. Jargonauts submits itself to Jack’s will and takes on “endosymbiosis”, too. What a ride.
Plus: hospital dancing, science-fantasy, robot overlords and Ken Ham’s epistemic humility.
