Kitchen Empiricism

One of the purposes of this blog is to relate how my Humanism - a worldview based on compassion and an empirical understanding of the world - affects my daily life.

So I am delighted to point you to a report posted by Possummomma, where an experiment was run to compare the effects of washing the kitchen daily with the effects of washing it semi-weekly.

The experiment is well-designed. The results are responsibly interpreted. Further avenues of investigation are laid out.

All to help the investigator decide how often to clean their kitchen. It's not a long read - go check it out.

What a delightful illustration of the empirical spirit of Humanist beliefs. Have you ever conducted an empirical study of some aspect of your own life in the same spirit? I don't know if I have.

What would you like to study or investigate?
