Is it just me or does it seem fundamentally wrong (as well as rude) to create a post commenting on the lack of education of other ATS users as part of a smear campaign? The first sentence of your post transforms your entire topic into a petty hit piece.

It's rude to not know anything about a particular subject and make accusations claiming these theories are crap or completely fake in general. I can't count how many times I have seen someone say something like Hawking Radiation is fake because it just is, nuclear fusion doesn't exist or anything else along those lines. None of these people have the slightest idea what it took to create these theories and criticize them the second they see or hear of them.
You can't take one study that seemed corrupt and assume every other bit of science is corrupt as well.
a quote Terrence McKenna who said that "science is nothing but a useful metaphore which is easily translated into the production of shiny toys for healthy children." What he meant was that when you ask I scientist how they know science is accessing the truths of reality, the scientist will show you all of the technology that he has been able to build based on scientific theory; all of his toys. McKenna and others suggest that this a naive position. As the author mentions, perhaps scientists are only accessing those truths which are relevant to building toys, and leaving out other truths
