You completely failed to understand the point. Pseudo-science, of any nature, is harmful to science regardless of the field of study. It encourages a line of reasoning (or anti-reasoning) that if left unchecked, will lead to other pseudo-scientific rubbish getting into the system. This has widespread ramifications for us all, which makes it my business, so I will stick my nose in and if you don't like it? It's no skin off my back.And you obviously missed the part I said it doesn't effect scientific studies in other areas whatsoever. Your just wasting your time sticking your nose in other people's business.
It matters because conflating faith-driven ideas with scientific study is misleading. It's how the religious right gets ideas like creationism into school science books, despite it having no business being there.And so what I think science is a religion,I never said I don't like religions. Having beliefs and faith in things is great. Don't tell me your getting your knickers in a knot over a simple word?
The more I see and hear science getting all antsy with the church and bible the more I just think it's an alternate religion,a different type of religion. It's just a word,meaning faith, belief,pursuit followed with great devotion. Sounds like a nice word to me.
What are you on about? I posted on my site yes - never said anything about anyone else getting involved. If people want to respond to it, they can, if they don't, so be it.And this big gang you showed us the post you were sending to, sure are taking their time.
Yet you can't present any reasonable alternative ideas that aren't couched in unscientific notions. You can't even present a reason for a vast global conspiracy to hide FE from us. It's therefore a vague allusion. You might have more credibility if you admitted that.And this vague allusion thing you've said in the next post,if you want to think that,good for you. No skin of my nose.
Like I said,I think the chances the earth is round is 30%. My ego couldn't care less if I'm 70% out. In fact I'd be happy if I am and we finally get some understanding of what's going on.
4% knowledge of the particles in our universe,I'm not making any wild predictions based on that or this Swiss cheese big bang theory.
