Guy P. Harrison is a journalist, science author and skeptic whose work addresses common pseudo-scientific myths. Harrison has been a world news editor, sports editor, photographer, page designer, and columnist. Harrison believes that the world would be a better place if more people understood how science works. He believes rational scientific explanations always improve on the heuristics of “folk wisdom.” He believes democracy can only function correctly with an informed population. This has been reflected in his comprehensive pop-science books, including 50 Popular Beliefs that People Think are True, Race and Reality: What Everyone Should Know about Our Biological Diversity, and 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God.
