126. there's studies, and then there's studies...
Pseudo-scientific piffle can attempt to mask itself in a sleazy polyester cloak of credibility by claiming to be backed by a "study," to be sure. (Free speech and all that). Give me a peer-reviewed, published study in Nature or some other reputable science media, and I'll consider it. Otherwise, you've got some numb-nuts "proving" that random piles of sand and rock are an "alien face" on Mars, bigfoot raped my dawg, aliens stole my pig mutilated my cows and that water has memory. My point is, there are studies, and then there are nutty-goo-goo-burgers who vigorously manipulate their nether-regions publicly and call it a "study." Take the Amazing Randi's million dollar challenge!! You take his money and I can almost guarantee that'd get me out in the woods on a bigfoot hunt with my favorite psychic in one wicked hurry! Calling some nut-jobs' deranged ravings a "scientific study" don't make it so, hence the need for peer-review. Just 'cause yer standing in a garage don't make you a car.
