Rather, it is that ideas, arguments, positions, and widely-used concepts have been deployed in mistaken or confused ways, or that highly relevant work well known to experts has been completely ignored. I commented on the Shermer pieces here and here. Neither Shermer nor Loeb are philosophers.
How about giving them a try? But if you are going to write such an article, and certainly if you are going to publish such an article in a magazine you edit, you should run it by someone who actually is an expert in the field. Failure to do so would be… unscientific. Your email address will not be published.

From to , Scientific American supervised the publication of the Encyclopedia Americana , which during some of that period was known as The Americana. On the front page of the first issue was the engraving of "Improved Rail-Road Cars". The masthead had a commentary as follows:.
Scientific American published every Thursday morning at No. Each number will be furnished with from two to five original Engravings, many of them elegant, and illustrative of New Inventions, Scientific Principles, and Curious Works; and will contain, in high addition to the most interesting news of passing events, general notices of progress of Mechanical and other Scientific Improvements; American and Foreign.
Improvements and Inventions; Catalogues of American Patents; Scientific Essays, illustrative of the principles of the sciences of Mechanics, Chemistry, and Architecture: This paper is especially entitled to the patronage of Mechanics and Manufactures, being the only paper in America, devoted to the interest of those classes; but is particularly useful to farmers, as it will not only appraise them of improvements in agriculture implements, But instruct them in various mechanical trades, and guard them against impositions.
As a family newspaper, it will convey more useful intelligence to children and young people, than five times its cost in school instruction. Another important argument in favor of this paper, is that it will be worth two dollars at the end of the year when the volume is complete, Old volumes of the New York Mechanic , being now worth double the original cost, in cash.
Five copies will be sent to one address six months for four dollars in advance. Any person procuring two or more subscribers, will be entitled to a commission of 25 cents each. There is perhaps no mechanical subject, in which improvement has advanced so rapidly, within the last ten years, as that of railroad passenger cars. Let any person contrast the awkward and uncouth cars of '35 with the superbly splendid long cars now running on several of the eastern roads, and he will find it difficult to convey to a third party, a correct idea of the vast extent of improvement.
The manufacturers have recently introduced a variety of excellent improvements in the construction of trucks, springs, and connections, which are calculated to avoid atmospheric resistance, secure safety and convenience, and contribute ease and comfort to passengers, while flying at the rate of 30 or 40 miles per hour. Also in the first issue is commentary on Signor Muzio Muzzi's proposed device for aerial navigation.
The Scientific American 50 award was started in to recognize contributions to science and technology during the magazine's previous year. The magazine's 50 awards cover many categories including agriculture, communications, defence, environment, and medical diagnostics.

In April , the U. Atomic Energy Commission ordered Scientific American to cease publication of an issue containing an article by Hans Bethe that appeared to reveal classified information about the thermonuclear hydrogen bomb.
Subsequent review of the material determined that the AEC had overreacted. The incident was important for the "new" Scientific American' s history, as the AEC's decision to burn copies of an early press-run of the magazine containing the offending material appeared to be " book burning in a free society" when publisher Gerard Piel leaked the incident to the press.
Cato Institute fellow Patrick J. Michaels said the attacks came because the book "threatens billions of taxpayer dollars that go into the global change kitty every year. Religious and political views need to defend themselves against criticism, but science is supposed to be a process for determining the facts. An editorial in the September issue of Scientific American attacked U. This marked the first time that the publication forayed into commenting on U. In , Danielle N. Lee , a female scientist who blogged at Scientific American , was called a "whore" in an email by an editor at the science website Biology Online after refusing to write professional content without compensation.
