Unsettling Pseudoscience



James P. Hogan: (Un)Settled Science - Hole in the AGWzone Layer! (via Louis Hissink's Crazy World.)

When beliefs that are normally regarded as the province of science become subject to an ideology that decides in advance what answers are required and censors the evidence in ways that steer beliefs toward them, then, regardless of what incidental use might be made of computers, satellites, and other kinds of advanced engineering and technology, what's going on isn't science. But most of the world has never learned to tell the difference – or maybe cared that much.

The design is good and the theory seems excellent, but a 2 D atom? Not easy to understand. Maybe it rotates about an axis, occupying 3D space?
