Yesterday I wrote about the importance of talking to people about science in ways they can understand. This writer’s focus is on Islam, not science, but he or she perfectly debunks a myth that has been going around the internet for five years: the myth that “this” August 27th, Mars will appear as large as the moon in the sky.
In addition to explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, the blog addresses a misunderstanding people may have of the Quran. The post ends with a reminder that
It is a sin to spread news and rumors without verifying it first!
See what I mean? Talk to the peeps in a way that works for them.
I will bypass the Lemmy rating system because I’m not sure this blogger would appreciate the association with a heavy metal musician. Let’s just call it a great post and leave it at that.
