Your result for The Do you know what science is? Test ...

Halfway there

You scored 0 True Scientist, 0 Needs study, 0 Conspiracy nut, and 0 Dogmatic!

Try not to take offense--I'm not sure how to describe this category. You scored partly as a scientist and partly as a dogmatic thinker. Maybe you guessed right on one of the questions and your thinking otherwise remains mired in religious dogma. Or maybe you have a better grasp than most on the essential concepts of the scietific method but have fallen for creationist propaganda. Open-mindedness is good. But with a complete understanding of the scientific method your mind will not open up so much that your brains fall out.

To acquire such an understanding read "The Advancement of Learning" by Francis Bacon, and/or the books of Stephen Jay Gould and Isaac Asimov's "History of Science." I hope that this test and the recommended readings prove helpful. On the other hand, if it happens that you scored on the high end of the dogmatic scale, then you may feel very angry now. C'mon, it's just a silly un-scientific test. Life goes on.
