Is science BS? Or is there BS masquerading as science?

Do you ever wonder why there seems to be conflicting news reports on the health/danger of various substances? Something is healthy, then another report says it's not? Who knows what to believe these days? Is science that contradictory? NO! The problem lies not in science as much as it is the fault of the news media mis-interpreting scientific studies. See John Oliver expose this industry and inoculate yourself against pseudo-scientific BS masquerading as legitimate research results.

[Vanity]
There are a number of new agey articles floating around the facebooks and internets promoting a very old concept called, "biocentrism", that existence is all subjective and the product of our own minds.

A seemingly-respectable medical doctor has recently published a book and is now on a big press-push, hyping this notion that consciousness lives on after death of the physical body. Let's take a look at how "sciencey" this "doctor" actually is...

If you think the drugs you're taking are safe, you might not want to hear about this next story from the Wall Street Journal.

A prominent Massachusetts anesthesiologist allegedly fabricated 21 medical studies that claimed to show benefits from painkillers like Vioxx and Celebrex, according to the hospital where he worked.

Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, Mass., said that its former chief of acute pain, Scott S. Reuben, had faked data used in the studies, which were published in several anesthesiology journals between 1996 and 2008.

Super-Superstitious John McCain

Don't try to pass a salt shaker to John McCain. He won't take it from your hand because it's bad luck.

The Arizona senator also won't throw a hat on a bed — it means death will soon visit the household — but he regularly carries 31 cents in lucky change in his pocket.

Now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has converted his staff to his famously superstitious ways. Whenever anyone says something optimistic — especially about this fall's general election — a slew of staffers join him in knocking on wood.

Scientist Who Appeared In "Expelled" Is Expelled From Screening

[Pseudo-Science]
This must be the most ironic story we've ever submitted. The Creationist propaganda movie claiming the scientific community is discriminating against those who believe differently, "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" held a screening at the Mall of America. In attendance were many people who were featured in the film, including Biology professor PZ Myers, who was found and asked to leave the theater. All the while, his friend standing next to him was ignored. Who was his friend? Oxford professor Richard Dawkins!

We have a video interview of the event.

Charlie Brooker of London's Guardian writes, "In the 18th century, a revolution in thought, known as the Enlightenment, dragged us away from the superstition and brutality of the Middle Ages toward a modern age of science, reason and democracy."

But now, he claims, we're entering a new era: The Unlightenment - in which centuries of rational thought are overturned by the superstitious.

ExxonMobil Corp. gave $16 million to 43 ideological groups between 1998 and 2005 in an effort to mislead the public by discrediting the science behind global warming, the Union of Concerned Scientists asserted Wednesday.

After all, what group is better qualified to discredit science than religious people... Who needs a Ph.D. when you've got a Baptist preacher in an El Dorado.

Forbes has produced a story outlining what the real world costs would be to begin being Batman.

Obviously being a super-villian costs a bit less. You just need to come from a rich Republican dynasty.
