We present a new edition of Ideological Education Essentials! (Otherwise known as 'Science' Education Essentials)

Now that that’s over with I can start on last week’s Science Essentials series, One Human Race.

The first post includes as it’s main image a fingerpost – that is, one of those signs that point in the direction of other places, in this case countries – that I’m reasonably certain could not exist. Heres a different signpost from Bluff that illustrates the principle, but more importantly does actually exist:
