Kind of like Bill Murry’s set up at the beginning of Ghost Busters.

He can always go into global warming or become a USFS biologist.

Given recent history of "scientific" hoaxes, it should be obvious that psychology is the least of the offenders. This fraud's writings were wrong but did little harm mainly because nobody paid much attention to them outside of academic circles.

Compare this to the climate change frauds, who are costing us billions of dollars. And Algore isn't even a scientist.

Psychology
Global Warming
Evolution

Some will disagree with the last item on the list, but I maintain that science is often mere scientism. It is a religion and the facts don’t matter — the adherents will make it up if they have to.

So many of scientist’s “studies” are agenda driven, like the “hockey stick” and “vaccine safety tests” so that they can pull the wool over the eyes of people “WITH THE TRUTH AND FACTS” and force policies to corral and destroy Capitalism and freedom and health.

A lot of “science” is all about power and money. Studies which “have” to have particular results, paid for by corporations and governments.

Their object is total control over all the masses—reproduction and property, life and death and activities.

Man, you’re crazy if you go to a psychologist.

...the case exposes deep flaws in the way science is done in a field, psychology, that has only recently earned a fragile respectability.

Only with the Gullible. Psychology is the atheist version of spiritual healing. Like all pagan religions it is chaotic at best. Of the Eighty-Eleven branches of the faith, it has yet to come up with a purpose or common ground. Give a hundred years and the "science" will reach the basic respectability and foundation of other somewhat established religions like, say Shamanism.

Psychology remains exactly what it’s Always been, Faith Healing & Snake Oil, a Complete Fraud. And it is anything BUT harmless, since it generates referrals to Psychiatrists and GPs who peddle disability, and worthless, killer drugs.

It's a red flag for grant-based research, period.

You get a grant if your research supports the position the grantee desires, ie. "climate change."

If it doesn't, no grant for you.
