Why So Much Science is Wrong, False, Puffed, or Misleading

Post by robinson »

For a contrarian like me, reading Ritchie is good for my mental sanity – but bad for my intellectual integrity. It fuels my priors that a lot of people, even experts, delude themselves into thinking they know things they actually don’t. Fantastic scientific results, either the kind blasted across headlines or those which gradually make it into public awareness, are often so poorly made that the results don’t hold up; they don’t capture anything real about the world. The book is a wake-up call for a scientific establishment often too blinded by its own erudite proclamations

Because I already believe, no, actually know that much science is bullshit, this is going to be hard for me to avoid my own bias while reading

My view, opinion, understanding of science is perhaps strange, because I think the scientific method should apply to science, especially claims made by experts
