In science, anecdotal evidence has been defined as: "information that is not based on facts or careful study"[verification needed]
"non-scientific observations or studies, which do not provide proof but may assist research efforts" "reports or observations of usually
unscientific observers" "casual observations or indications rather than rigorous or scientific analysis" "information passed along
by word-of-mouth but not documented scientifically" Anecdotal evidence can have varying degrees of formality. For instance, in medicine, published
anecdotal evidence is called a case report, which is a more formalized type of evidence subjected to peer review. Although such evidence is not
seen as conclusive, it is sometimes regarded as an invitation to more rigorous scientific study of the phenomenon in question. For instance, one
study found that 35 of 47 anecdotal reports of side effects were later sustained as "clearly correct." Anecdotal evidence is considered the
least certain type of scientific information. Researchers may use anecdotal evidence for suggesting new hypotheses, but never as validating
Did you get that?? Can you comprehend that?
"study found that 35 of 47 anecdotal reports of side effects were later sustained as "clearly correct."
Sure - side effects of medicines......nothing at all to do with "cjemtrails".
Let's have a look at he anecdotal evidence for "chemtrails" and how accurate it has been founf to be shall we, since "c hemtrails" are the matter
under discussion, and not medicines!!
KSLA "Barium" trails - false (mis-read micro for milli)
Mt Shasta aluminium in water - false (tested sludge, not water)
Mohave barium levels - false - measured levels were well within the norm
Photos, videos & written accounts of "chemtrails" - not one ever actually found correct
"Connect the dot" hysteria to monsanto aluminium resistent gene in plants - never actually established any link betwen monsanto & any "spraying",
& ignores almost 100 years of known published history of the study fo aluminium toxicity in acidic soils
"Accounts" & stories of "chemtrails" being used to "help" conceal the sun, change the weather, hide niburu & miscellaneous other theories - none
ever actually shown as anythign except someone's unsupported imagination
I would say me and the "believers" are on to something.....
well of course you would - else you'd have to admit you've been sucked in and fallen for one of the most stupid hoaxes ever - I
this one will be right up there with Piltdown Man - and I
havethe evidence to support my contention - you are still imagining fairies.
your logic, not mine, is what's failing you
"My" logic isn't failing anyone - it is also not "my" logic - logic os not "owned" by anyone.
It is, however, ignored by the likes of you who prefer to believe something that has no verifiable evidence supporting its existance. For some reason
you prefer to fear the fantasy ratehr than accept that it doesn't exist.
The psychology of conspiracy believers is becoming a whole subject in it's own right - Frater has alluded to it, and
this article also notes a political connection
Congratulations - conspiracy belief is now a case study in disfunction!
