ScienceBlog = Fact?

Just because you read it on a blog with science in its name, does not mean its automatically true.

UPDATE: The same caution should really be used for everything you read or hear. On the internet or off. Particularly if one identifies as a skeptic. You need to approach everything with a little skepticism, just because one blogs under the banner of science shouldn’t excuse them from having to meet the same level of criticism that you apply to the religious or to whomever or whatever else it may be.

    What you’re specifically referring to is a physics blogger who makes some very specific – out outlandish – economic claims. One should always take what they read with a grain of salt, but a huge red flag is when people step out of their area of expertise.

    Noam Chomsky should stick to linguistics, Stephen King to cheesy horror novels and Jenny McCarthy to hosting dating shows.

    Jenny McCarthy was never good at hosting any show.

    Can’t argue with you there.

    True, but she killed a lot less kids when that was her vocation.

    Jenny McCarthy hosted a show? Guess I am glad I missed that one.
