One correction: we've "only" reviewed 1700 stories, not 17,000 - even though many days it feels like 17,000! Gary Schwitzer Publisher HealthNewsReview.org Patrice,

Comment on The denial of evolution, and the evolution of denial: Sean Carroll by Alric http://sciencedenial.wisc.edu/2012/04/the-denial-of-evolution-and-the-evolution-of-denial-sean-carroll/#comment-10 Alric Wed, 25 Apr 2012 17:23:11 +0000 http://sciencedenial.wisc.edu/?p=601#comment-10 #6 is the largest obstacle for science and progress.
