Massimo Pigliucci is a scientist, [[philosophy|philosopher][, and prominent critic of pseudoscience. He is a professor at SUNY-Stony Brook and holds three Ph.D.s: one in genetics from the University of Ferrara, one in botany from the University of Connecticut, and one in philosophy from the University of Tennessee. He has debated [[creationism|creationists][ and [[apologetics|Christian apologists][ including Kent Hovind and Duane Gish. He regularly writes for 'Skeptical Inquirer' and 'Philosophy Now.'
Pigliucci has criticized [[Richard Dawkins][ for claiming to be able to scientifically refute the existence of [[God][ in a broad sense. Pigliucci's view is that there is strong evidence against specific versions of the God hypothesis, but that when taken in a broad sense, God is a non-falsifiable hypothesis.
