Yin and Yang

Yes, Grasshopper, you must learn that all things have their opposites.

Yin and Yang. Light and Shadow. Evidence-based medicine and Quackery. Science and Pseudoscience. Evolution and Creationism.

History and Bad History.

At this transient moment in time, History can be represented by the latest edition of the History Carnival at ClioWeb, while Bad History can be represented by the latest edition of the Carnival of Bad History at Dodecahedron. Go forth, young Grasshopper, and learn of history and how it is distorted and abused for various ideological reasons. Pay particular attention to this piece, which shows the interconnectedness of History and Science by encouraging appropriate questions to ask your history teacher.

Students, we will speak of this again when I take a turn hosting the History Carnival in two weeks time. Begin to prepare your essays now; your scrolls are due here by 9 PM EST on Wednesday, September 14.
