So you think it's ignorant and disingenuous to tell it like it is and expose the truth ? I must have missed something here. Ah yes, how does that religious affirmation chant go again ? Oh yes, "Science is an ever evolving ever self-correcting mechanism". It's certainly a common claim about the superiority of science over other ways of knowing is that science is self-correcting; science may take wrong turns from time to time, but it eventually finds its way back on the right road. While I most certainly do believe in the power of the scientific method; and generally speaking, it’s true that it's possible at times for science to self-correct. However, it’s more important to understand how human limitations frailties, imperfections (don't forget, scientists are human too) sometimes undermine the process of this so-called self-correction. And yes, the peer review process makes it possible to challenge popular but false notions. But as I've stated before, in these modern times this process has become highly susceptible to the negative influences of politics and government funding. You want funding, then you need to follow the popular Dogma mandated by whatever power is ruling at any one time. The Myth of Self-Correcting Science Religion comes in many forms and does not necessarily require an intelligent agency. An obese person's god may be Food. A Drunk's god may be alcohol. and so forth. You are as equally religious as your number one fan here "Len". Take a look at the image below. Both illustrated picture sides are Peer-Reviewed. The problem is that the Peer-Review on the left is winning. The Peer-Review on the right is no doubt good and informative, but it's shelved in favour of the other which creates wealth, political careers, legacy etc. Evidence of fact that the Peer-Review on the left is winning is why such forums as this Permaculture forum and other not for profit organizations are springing up everywhere. Had Peer-Review been doing it's job all along as that chant insists, we may never have met Mark.
