    Wow. I know that there’s a lot of superstition and magical thinking out there. But seeing the quantity of belief systems and ideas that are not based on any facts is sort of depressing. People are not logical creatures. I don’t know why we would even think that we would be….sadly.

    About Me

    I’m a freelance writer, blogger and research wonk who writes about science, technology and the cultural ripples of both. Along my winding career route I've been a public outreach specialist, editor, research analyst, proposal writer and part-time journo. When I’m not writing for True/Slant, I’m blogging about neuroscience and a medley of ‘ologies’ at Neuronarrative.com, and writing freelance for Scientific American Mind.
