The Problem with Papers
Science is being severely damaged by the way in which academics communicate
their ideas to the world. This essay is a plea for clarity and modesty in
place of selfish and fearful confusion.
Science, Rational Thought and Bayes' Theorem
Science, and indeed all rational thought, hinge around a few basic principles
which, though straightforward and undeniable, seem to be ignored by many
when examining incredible pseudoscientific claims. This essay examines how
Science approaches such claims, and how scientific Theories are challenged.
