From Matt Ridley/Donna Laframboise at Science New/The Times:
The latest university prank is embarrassing to academia and hilarious for the rest of us.
Yes. The conceptual penis. And before that:
This happened last year, too, when Professor Mark Carey published an even more absurd paper arguing that “a critical but overlooked aspect of the human dimensions of glaciers and global change research is the relationship between gender and glaciers” and introducing “feminist glaciology”. In that case, however, the professor continues to insist, against all evidence, that he was serious. Science magazine gave him a lengthy, softball interview to justify his work after it was laughed at on the internet. I still think he’s a joker in deep cover.More.
Yeah. We remember those glaciers dancing in their underwear too.
But isn’t the real story something like this?: Naturalism is rotting science from the head down and we are all paying? If we do not believe that humans can discover facts, how can we maintain that anything is or isn’t true? Isn’t it just “up to the individual” until the government intervenes?
