Re: Is NASA’s Mars Exploration the Real Thing?
I think one of the problems is that science has become like a religion itself and administered by a high priesthood, the guru scientist themselves.
However having said that I would still make a distinction between good science and phoney science.
The only problem is the good science doesn't sound as impressive as the phoney science.
It seems there is an unwritten rule within the human psyche that if something isn't really true but is presented as the truth it sounds even better and everyone wants to hear about it.
I'm sure there are many phoney scientists out there who have banked on this simple fact to gain bucket loads of funding.
Its very much the equivalent of the charlatan selling bottles of fake medicine back in good old days.
