"Science literacy is a vaccine against the charlatans of the world that would exploit your ignorance." -Neil deGrasse Tyson Well, I guess it's that season again. The charlatan who claims to have invented a cold fusion device -- the same device whose flaws were exposed here two years ago -- has just held an "independent test" of his device, and there's now a physics paper out claiming that this device works, and must be powered by some type of nuclear reaction! Well. Look, let's get a few things out into the open first. If there is a cold fusion device that actually works, that can harness the power of nuclear fusion to create energy, it would change the world. We would -- as I've written recently -- have a virtually limitless source of clean and cheap energy, and would not only be able to travel to Mars, but to any other world in our Solar System. We could even, literally, reach for the stars! But it's not enough to just simply think about how wonderful it would be if it … [Read more...] about The E-Cat is back, and people are still falling for it!
Peter please answer the following question
The crackpots are bustin' out all over -- not just in politics, but also in science. Remember Stuart Pivar? The septic tank tycoon who invented a whole new theory of evolution and development that he called Lifecode, built entirely around imaginary drawings of how embryos formed by folding and stretching themselves like balloon animals? It was total nonsense. There was no data. Much of his imagined topological transformations contradicted known embryological patterns, and he'd clearly never looked at real embryos. It was loosely based on structuralism, like the work of D'Arcy Thompson, which I consider useful and interesting, but it ignored all the work of the last century on induction and cell signaling and gene regulation. Trust me on this, no modern renovation of evo-devo will be able to just wave away gene and molecular interactions shaped by genetic variation as irrelevant, but that's what Pivar has done. I should also disclose that Pivar filed a lawsuit for $15 million against me … [Read more...] about Imaginary Gastrulation and the return of Balloon Animal Biology

When they were first created, these social media platforms were essentially neutral, and they really did greatly contribute to the marketplace of ideas. But now there is a tremendous effort to censor voices that are a threat to the establishment, and in recent months we have witnessed the greatest purge of conservative voices in the history of the Internet. Anything that does not conform to the agenda of the elite is being labeled as “hate speech”, and countless anti-establishment voices have had social media accounts either “shadowbanned” or terminated completely. Needless to say, this could dramatically … [Read more...] about The big social media companies are being used as a weapon to advance the agenda of the new world order
Aaron Blake, The Washington Post Published 12:28 pm PDT, Thursday, July 12, 2018 Now Playing: FBI agent Peter Strzok pushes back hard on suggestion that his personal political beliefs influenced his handling of investigative duties. Media: Time FBI agent Peter Strzok had his moment on an extremely hot seat Thursday morning in a contentious hearing that quickly devolved into angry yelling, interjections and parliamentary maneuvering. Appearing before a joint session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, Strzok sought to explain his anti-Trump text messages at a time when he was the lead agent on the FBI's then-nascent Russia investigation in 2016. He was removed from the investigation in 2017 after those text messages with fellow FBI employee Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair, were discovered. Republicans including President Donald Trump have seized upon Strzok's texts - which included allusions to stopping Trump - as evidence of a biased … [Read more...] about 6 key moments from Peter Strzok’s wild hearing
Ah, mid-July. The NBA and NHL free agent frenzies have died down and the madness of the MLB trade deadline is still a few weeks away, as is the start of NFL training camps.For it being the slowest time of the year for the Eagles, there's quite a bit to get to in today's edition of What They're Saying. I guess that tends to happen when you when the Super Bowl, but there's no way of knowing for sure since it's never happened before.Anyway, let's get right into it, shall we?Could Eagles miss playoffs?Brinson listed the Eagles as one of four teams he believes will take a step back in 2018. Please, Eagles fans, don't shoot the messenger (me).Why They Won't Make the Playoffs: One of the biggest reasons involves the team's biggest strength: the quarterback position. Wentz is coming from an ACL injury and Foles is notoriously streaky. Wentz failing to recover, or dealing with a setback of some kind, doesn't automatically mean Foles comes in and wins MVP. This is a team that lost its … [Read more...] about What they’re saying: Eagles have best QB outlook in NFL — but won’t make the playoffs!?
