the credibility of debunkers.

Merrell,

Debunking is pretty easy. Almost anything can be debunked. See

[debunkatron.com]

Scientists use skeptical methods extensively to identify tests or even paradigms of potential tests to objectively and empirically validate--or further question--appropriate issues within topic areas. Then tghey get to work and carry out studies.

Unfortunately, there is a substantial range of questions and even topic areas that can't be tested using any established scientific methods. Almost all of the New Age questions and topic areas are within this range.

Enter the Debunkatron brigade. Debunkatron style debunking doesn't lead anywhere.

All a true scientific skeptic can say is that the claims have not been properly studied--or can't be studied at all. Therefore, they're not very interesting to science or scientists.

Debunkers, going beyond science and taking the "high" road, can only say that such claims don't make sense to them--or are inconsistent with a historical infrastructure. But that's way too tame for many of them--and those debunkers certainly don't hold anything back.

It almost demands pushback, and brings more and more attention to the wrong issues and problem. It does have it's perks-even debunkers like Jason Calovito seem to be making out like bandits spending their whole life playing the debunkatron game--and their victims don't do too badly either.

Nobody even reads the real stuff.

Ray
