This is a 9 page PDF file.
This is many years old.

Damned if it does not NAIL the concepts down that we still struggle with today.

The destruction of Science has been going on for a while now!

    Excellent article, Capn! 👍
    Rational and entertaining with great examples to make the author's points.

    "Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your
    wallet, because you’re being had.



    Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the
    business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be
    right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In
    science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in
    history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.



    There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it
    isn’t consensus. Period.
    ...
    Finally, I would remind you to notice where the claim of consensus is invoked. Consensus is
    invoked only in situations where the science is not solid enough. Nobody says the consensus of
    scientists agrees that E=mc2. Nobody says the consensus is that the sun is 93 million miles away.
    It would never occur to anyone to speak that way. "
