There is a difference between scientific and non-scientific knowledge. You will need to watch, listen, or read the news from whatever source you choose (TV, internet, radio). Pay attention to the conversation or what you are reading and focus on when the article, commentators, or guests use statistics or facts in their argument. Is what you heard scientific or non-scientific knowledge? What is the difference between scientific and non-scientific knowledge? How are you able to determine if what you heard was scientific or non-scientific knowledge? Did the information that you read, saw, or heard convince you of the argument?
