So hear me out: In psychology, one gene is not the key for solving the behaviour mysteries. Only with the complex relationship between genes, environment, and individual development we can grasp a bigger picture of one’s psyche. This may sound completely nonsensical, but stick with me, I have a reason to start this way.
Assassin’s Creed (2016) was a bad movie. I doubt many people here will be startled by this statement (or even watched it). There are many reasons why; but one in particular rubbed my brain. You see, I happen to be a psychologist student, and inevitably my behavioural-sciences-bullshit facts’ radar pointed my attention towards a dialogue excerpt from the movie. I would like to discuss that scene, not because I believe my criticism would stack this gloated piece of consumption right in its heart, but rather to outcry for yet another trend present in our days: Shitty science mythos.
