the same thing, but even better

I just saw pretty much the same thing from PZ Myers' blog, Pharyngula (you should really check it out if you haven't; PZ is a biologist and fellow defender of rationality). This version has a prettier format and text. Anyway, it's at:

http://www.seedmagazine.com/news/2007/03/scientific_method_relationship.php

If you follow the link, you can order a free 25"x24" print; you just have to pay $10 for shipping and handling.

It's a great tool for arguing with irrational people who would like to refute one part of science while enjoying the benefits of another. They are often ID-ers who still choose to have their lives saved with medicine. This chart shows them that it really is all interconnected...even my field, atomic physics, is only a few references away from evolutionary biology.

Anyway, free poster!

"The priests of the different religious sects...dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of daylight, and scowl on the fatal harbinger announcing the subdivision of the duperies on which they live."--Thomas Jefferson, to Correa de Serra
