What I am:
I’m A Science Enthusiast! (But my friends call me Dan.) In a past life, I was a public school teacher. Currently, I’m a social worker by day, and an amateur science communicator at night. I made a Facebook page, A Science Enthusiast, which I went active with around December 2014. I’m from southern Indiana by birth, and now living in Indianapolis by choice. I enjoy playing with LEGO (…both with and without my kids…), as well as trail running.
Why do this?
I made aSE to talk about skepticism, science, atheism, logic, critical thinking, religion, geek culture, human rights, other things I think are important, and other things that may not be all that important.
My goal is to increase science literacy and promote critical thinking. I’m not sure if I heard this idea somewhere or if it was an original thought, but I believe that science becomes significantly less scary once you make an attempt to understand it. I think most of the “antis” (anti-GMO, anti-vaccine, anti-science) have the views they have because of a lack of understanding and general distrust of authority figures.
