What makes a scientific study well, scientific?
We’ve all seen claims made by deniers, new age gurus, and pseudoskeptics where they make a claim, usually shared from some Facebook page talking about a dubious claim which is strangely backed up my a study. Where do these studies come from? How are they actually making it into the scientific community? And seriously, oil pulling?
This month we are going to take a look at the not-so-scientific journal world. How it came about, why it is so big and what people are doing about it.
Conversely, we will also look at what makes a real scientific study valid and how to spot the difference.
It’s not like anyone will stop sharing Natural News articles but at least it will help.
Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and participate.
I look forward to seeing you there!
