Not my pants. But if you can't see that, well ... then all the more reason I'm done.

Claims without sources are a fail.
We all know that.

I saw that article earlier today.

It certainly underscores the importance of reproducibility in scientific experimentation.

And it does make you wonder. I recall all the recent news stories about how studies determined this or that about people of various ideologies or with faith or without it for example.

As much as I did like what some of those stories had to say ... the phrase "junk science" did come to mind when reading these stories.

I like how much of science is believed "IN THEORY" something that can only be reproduced by more theorists, who have all been taught the same theories.

And then they say they are not like the God believers at all.

Yet scientists are disproportionately non-believers. Seems they have faith in something else.

LOL that is the best part, they are deluded in a whole new way... and they BELIEVE the have faith in something else.

For those of us who can actually take a step back and look at the entire picture, they look entirely the same as all the other believers.

This comes as no surprise to me.

This doesn't only go on in Social Science, but
unfortunately also in "hard" science as well,
which unlike Psychology, can lead to tragic
results because the vast majority of Americans
believe as absolutely and unequivocally true
any "studies" or "research" that is published.

Most people on ATS scream to high heaven
when I point out that one should never
ever believe one study on any subject.
But it is true. Without a study being
replicated multiple times, you can not
at all be in any way sure the results are

Thanks for saving me a bunch of typing.

And some people wonder why the public's trust in almost all institutions (political and otherwise) has diminished so.
