Overview

SCIENTIFIC SUPERSTITIONS is a booklet that proposes to debunk some of the most common fallacies subscribed to by Hollywood and the media "experts". It dwells into quantum mechanics
parallel universes, time elements, and also into some geodesic elements.

It revisits the Darwinian human evolution theory, touching base on the subject of the missing evolutionary link that some believe to be our common ancestor, a aquatic ape. It stops to examine educational fallacies, and economic theories which the author lumps together as scientific superstitions.

The argumentation selected to debunk several modern fallacies are reminiscent of earlier, but much simpler times, when all scientists admitted their shortcomings when were unable to explain something, without lunching vitriolic attacks against their colleagues who showed signs of original
thinking.

What this book excels in, is the analysis of the scientific research methodology, explaining many complex terms, thus easy to understand for a logical reader..

    This book can fascinate any person interested in technology and science. It uncovers most of the aspects that govern the politics of scientific research, showing the reasons why our academia prostitutes on the altar of money coming from corporate sponsors. Cuddos to the author who had the guts to remove the veil of secrecy from this hidden area of human endeavors, risking to be labeled "politically incorrect". I don't think that this author should apologize for that, Definitely a 5-star book.
