Loopy science?

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]lihan161051)

Stumbled across some rather strange sites on the sidebar to Heavens Above, which I tend to browse now and then to look up useful satellite stuff. One of them looks pretty suspiciously like what we may get to look forward to in terms of scientific revisionism, the other just makes me wonder what they're up to.


Seems to be trying to prove more or less a different flavor of "intelligent design", or at least disprove non-supernatural theories of the origin of the universe. Very heavy religious overtones, and a peculiarly cumbersome design style that seems to want to *force* the reader to jump through lots of hoops to cut to the chase, some topics requiring downloading audio and playing it back, others requiring various other tedious interactions with the site to dig stuff out of it. Overall, reads about like the self-published book on "squaring the circle" from the 1900's I found in a library one time that was printed in all caps in 72 point type, all hundred-odd pages of it.


May actually be scientifically legitimate, but after slogging through the first site, the aggressively defensive attitude of the author threw up some red flags.

Both were kind of interesting, seems like if "intelligent design" ever gets a foothold we may have to watch out for a lot of copycats in other fields of science ..
