publicado 08/01/2006, Última modificación 26/06/2013

Edge (The World Question Center) ha publicado su más reciente pregunta anual, hecha esta vez a más de 170 investigadores científicos prominentes en la comunidad. La pregunta de este año:


The history of science is replete with discoveries that were considered socially, morally, or emotionally dangerous in their time; the Copernican and Darwinian revolutions are the most obvious. What is your dangerous idea? An idea you think about (not necessarily one you originated) that is dangerous not because it is assumed to be false, but because it might be true?

Las mejores respuestas, desde mi perspectiva:

  • Paul Bloom: There are no souls
  • Jesse Bering: Science will never silence God
  • David Buss: The evolution of Evil
