Returning to Hogwarts to Learn Human Embryology
Using the notion that we need “defense against the dark arts,” this chapter seeks to give the reader tools that will enable us to rationally consider the information about who we are and how we came to be. It looks at how science is described, and how those descriptions can alter the way we view the topic. Language and images can make us accept the mistaken beliefs that our DNA is our souls, that fertilization is a contest, and that fetuses are independent organisms.
