JUNK SCIENCE, ALTERNATIVE FACTS AND THE GOSPEL
I was once asked the question: what is science? My response was: Empirically determining truth. This answer was not satisfying for the person asking the question. Perhaps they wanted more of the observation, hypothesis, and test type of answer but I like the brevity of a Strunk and White answer. One could come up with other paraphrases: truth via experimentation, or experimental enlightenment.
Rather than asking questions about what truth must be, I find a far more interesting question to be: What is up with junk-science?
Lying with experiments.
Passing off error as truth
Junk science is my inference. Inference to some of the most important questions to be asked and then answered.
