Science Polish

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an entry here about how science is all about imagination. It got some attention, which is always nice when I think science is being denigrated in some way; I see a whole lot of that, and I’m glad to be able to push back at the forces of darkness, even if just a little.

I got a request from Krzysztof Achinger, a skeptic in Poland who wanted to translate the article into Polish and post it on the rationalist site Racjonalista. The Hive Overmind granted permission, and the article is now up on their site.

It’s very gratifying to see something like this; it’s not easy keeping up with the skeptical movement in the US, let alone around the world! Antiscience is everywhere, and it’s wonderful to know that there are people around the planet who have formed groups and are fighting the good fight.
