Fact Meets Fiction
Two words: Red Skull. The evil genius who ran Nazi Germany’s deep science plan. There is no Captain America to defeat evil geniuses. The scientific community must resist pressure to create an American fascist “deep science” program, lest we find the need to revolt against our own government. No more needs be said. As a former member of a social science research center at the U of C, I know how easy it is for those in power to misquote or otherwise twist valid scientific research outcomes into “alternative facts.” Where will it end? We must support scientists to combat alternative facts, scientifically valid research presented out of context, and hypotheses proven by deeply flawed scientific outcome data. God help us.
