Arguments

  • The extraordinary foundation encapsulating the scientific method is whatever one claims, can be tested and confirmed independently by anyone who tries to debunk that claim. And in the end, within the omnipotent matrix of nature, becomes the judge.

  • I am of the opinion and understanding that the Scientific community as a whole (Mostly referencing governing organizations and academies) are extremely loose and incompetent in their regulation of Publications of Scientific study and research.

    Simply put, official organizations who regulate publications of Scientific research and study do an agonizing job at scrutinizing, reviewing and auditing the submissions.  This accounts for an unforgivable amount of misinformation spreading throughout the World today disguised as legitimate and reliable Scientific evidence.

    Case in Point: All the misinformed people who still think vaccines are bad for their children based on the MMR Vaccine Publication by Andrew Wakefield.  Mind you that the research and study that led to the belief that the Vaccine was dangerous was actually published in the British Medical Journal The Lancet.  The Lancet is one of the oldest and best known medical Journals in the World.  This of course isn't even the top layer of problems with Scientific publications of any type but stands as one simple example of why I don't purchase into what Scientists publish...even if I quit my job and did nothing but review Scientific research...I still wouldn't have enough time to do what Scientific Organizations are SUPPOSED to be doing in regards to reviewing Scientific research and study for accuracy and legitimacy.
    "If there's no such thing as a stupid question then what kind of questions do stupid people ask"?

    "There's going to be a special place in Hell for people who spread lies through the veil of logical fallacies disguised as rational argument".

    "Oh, you don't like my sarcasm?  Well I don't much appreciate your stupid".

  • I believe it yes. Why do I believe it? Because to fight the scientists is a battle that always ends badly for the one fighting them.

    Work with them to prove themselves wrong. Learn to play the game.

    I leave to think, I return to brawl.
