Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: Science’s Dirty Secret Revealed: It Fudges the Math to Explain the World
We rely upon the leaders of modern science to tell us the truth, particularly when the subject is the nature of the very world we live in. But it is well known that modern physicists apply a gigantic fudge factor to the equations underlying their theories of the physical world. Data fudging didn’t work out too well for certain proponents of global warming. Why is no one talking about this fudging that is occurring on a much grander scale? Dr. Chris Oakley, who was driven out of the physics community for voicing objections to the fudging problem, joins host Philip Mereton from the U.K. in a conversation about why physicists resort to mathematical contrivances to explain the world, and what it means for the future of science.
