Journal Publishes 8-Year-Olds…But Not Acharya S

It amazes me that children can publish academically…but Zeitgeist mythicists cannot.  Read on, it’s a pretty good way to educate people about the value of peer review and the methods that scientists use.

It came with wobbly writing and hand-drawn diagrams, but an elementary school science project has made it into a peer-reviewed journal from Britain’s prestigious Royal Society.

Biology Letters published a report Wednesday conducted and written by a group of 8- to 10-year-olds from an English elementary school investigating the way bumblebees see colors and patterns. The scientific organization — which is more than three centuries old and includes some of the world’s most eminent scientists — said the children reported findings that were a “genuine advance” in the field of insect color and pattern vision.

  1. … where is the humour category Tom ;-) ? Despite what I think of her work I’ve read, this is a science journal and mythicism is not science. These children worked with neuroscientist from University College London and their interest and expression of biology is of more interest to the scientific community than mythicism. or even an interdisciplinary social scientific approach to religious origins. They represent the future of science, something that is trying to be encouraged. But you’re joking surely?

  2. Truly.

  3. eh??? what do you mean by truly? Truly what – what is true … it’s one of the expressions you sometimes use on facebook and I never know what you mean exactly. :-) Pleeeease tell me.
