The quantization of space

Quantum mechanics defines our observable physical environment only in terms of the probabilistic values associated with Schrödinger’s wave equation. More specifically it defines a particle in terms of the instantaneous collapse of a wave function which it assumes extends form one edge of the universe to the other. Schrodinger Equation and Material Waves However this […]

Hubert Yockey, 1916-2016, and His Contributions to the Intelligent Design Movement

Hubert Yockey, though he personally was against Intelligent Design, made many contributions to science that many of us within the ID community view as pro-ID work. I wanted to take a moment to appreciate and reflect on his contributions as […]

Big Pharma: How science, misused, can “create” an epidemic

From Gareth Cook at Scientific American, reviewing Alan Schwarz’s ADHD Nation: According to the American Psychiatric Association, about 5 percent of American children suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), yet the diagnosis is given to some 15 percent of American children, many of whom are placed on powerful drugs with lifelong consequences. This is […]

P-values: Has science got probability wrong?

From professor of pharmacology David Colquhoun at Aeon: The aim of science is to establish facts, as accurately as possible. It is therefore crucially important to determine whether an observed phenomenon is real, or whether it’s the result of pure chance. If you declare that you’ve discovered something when in fact it’s just random, that’s […]
