My original post by the way was written out of frustration from debating a couple of old friends of mine on facebook who are pro-globalist, pro-vaccine, anti-conspiritorial, pseudo-skeptical, evangelical atheist sun deniers! They kept linking to 'skeptic' and 'debunking' sites and using the same old phrases; "peer-reviewed research", "respectable journals", "all credible scientists agree", blah blah blah, as well as ridiculing me, labelling me, psychologically analysing me etc. and misinterpretting my arguments... it's incredibly infuriating... and they're not bad guys they're just brainwashed. They claim their beliefs are based on science but really it's a religious faith in authority.
In nazi germany there was "peer-reviewed research" in "respectable journals" and "credible scientists" saying that jews were genetically inferior and that the gene pool needed cleansing but it was still bullshit! The founding of Nature, the world's most "prestigious" journal, was strongly supported by TH Huxley. It was literally founded by eugenicists to promote darwinism and eugenics - and 140 plus years later, it's still doing it. Just because some AGW / pro-vaccine crap is in Nature, doesn't mean it's the truth!
