Does Real Science Need a Propaganda Apparatus?
by Barry Arrington

A friend sends along this link to sign up for propaganda training by a group called the “Climate Reality Project.”  The website boasts that “Climate Presenters are volunteers who teach their communities about the climate crisis using a training program produced by former Vice President Al Gore. These leaders are typically engaged in a number of activities aimed at this goal, but the slideshow developed by The Climate Reality Project is their signature tool.”

Why didn’t the physicists think of this?  Instead of relying on the facts and evidence to sort itself out through rigorous application of the scientific method, they could have organized groups called, oh I don’t know, the “General Relativity Reality Project.”  

BarryA, impervious to irony.

"Random mutations, if they are truly random, will affect, and potentially damage, any aspect of the organism, [...]
Thus, a realistic [computer] simulation [of evolution] would allow the program, OS, and hardware to be affected in a random fashion." GilDodgen, Frilly shirt owner
