US: “Shut up”, he explained

September 25, 2013

Popular Science website will no longer accept reader comments.

A politically motivated, decades-long war on expertise has eroded the popular consensus on a wide variety of scientifically validated topics. Everything, from evolution to the origins of climate change, is mistakenly up for grabs again. Scientific certainty is just another thing for two people to “debate” on television. And because comments sections tend to be a grotesque reflection of the media culture surrounding them, the cynical work of undermining bedrock scientific doctrine is now being done beneath our own stories, within a website devoted to championing science.

Popular Science

Translation: we can’t refute our critics, so we’re going to pretend they don’t exist.

Bye-bye credibility!
