The totalitarian left is the home base for junk science

JunkScience.com is devoted to exposing bad intellectual inquiry in all aspects of modern academic hard and soft science, including psycho-social/cultural inquiry. Why would we ignore such a target rich battleground?

I can’t help you if you insist that JS is just about medical or climate claims that are based on junk science. After all public policy and public attitudes are affected as much by junk social science claims as bad hard science, and scientific methodology is a general strategy to find the truth.

Here is an essay on why the left needs to cheat and lie on science and systematically ignores evidence of their failed ideology.

    Nice. Of course, there is also the little problem that the operating definition of “science” is that process whereby one can receive grants and get published.

  2. Seventy years after the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the people of Japan were finally told the truth:

    After WWII, public knowledge of composition (neutrons) and energy (neutron repulsion) was forbidden in cores of

    1. Heavy atoms like Uranium
    2. Some planets like Jupiter
    3. Ordinary stars like the Sun
    4. Galaxies like the Milky Way
    5. The expanding Universe

    Neutron-repulsion in cores of U and Th atoms melted deep-seated rocks that became the islands of Japan.

  3. I see this as a reflection of a narcissist personality. While everyone is entitled to an opinion, these types assume their opinions are fact. That’s why it’s so hard to discuss bona fide evidence. The ego is such that they cant even begin to entertain the thought that beliefs aren’t accurate.

    Orwell wrote about this in his essay, Politics vs. Literature: An Examination of Gulliver’s Travels – “This illustrates very well the totalitarian tendency which is explicit in the anarchist or pacifist vision of Society … In other words, we know everything already, so why should dissident opinions be tolerated?”

  4. Common sense, history and reality will never support the left, so they have to rely on “science” to peddle their cause.
