Massimo Pigliucci is a scientist, 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 creationists and 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.
