From U Penn psych prof James Coyne:
Never confuse eminence-based with evidence-based, even if something’s coming with awards from big-name universities. – Robin N. Kok
Good advice. Also
I don’t know about you, but I get damned angry at the APS sacrificing its integrity and damaging itself as a trusted source by promoting this crap. This is not the first time that APS has let ithe public down with promotion of bad science that exploits people in need of credible psychological advice
You just can’t interpret claims as being credible because they are endorsed by the APS. More.
One wonders what science eminences would end up as patios if this advice were taken to heart.
