We should by now be used to competing scientific groups arguing with each other and generally just jacking us around over who's theory is correct. One week it's okay to drink a crapload of coffee, and the next it's not. One week scientists are writing about how harmful cellphone radiation is, and the next they're telling us that cellphones are harmless. Don't scientists have standards? Don't they have the Scientific Method? Shouldn't we be able to reproduce these experiments and still have enough time to catch the midget wrestling match at Spanky's later tonight?
Occasionally, one scientific group will just lose their minds and start publishing crap that should be kept secret. Case in point: cloaking devices. Today I read that scientists have actually outlined how to make a cloaking device. Pretty incredible! But even more incredible, these American and British scientists didn't hold onto this knowledge and let our governments use this technology... they published it for the world to see.
Are you mad!? We're worried about terrorists bringing Dirty Bombs through our porous Mexican border, and now you're going to give them a way to discretely fly over it. Thanks a lot, jerkies!
I'm done with scientists and their arrogance. I'm sticking with religious institutions, where at least when they lie to you, they are consistent.
