BICEP2: Healthy science?!

Folks, you have been hearing a rising chorus of homilies about how BICEP2 is a healthy scientific process; how this is how science works; how this is how science is supposed to work; how this is a proof that science is self-correcting. And how the BICEP2 boys should be applauded for developing breakthrough instrumentation.

Total bunkum!

BICEP2 is an inept instrumental botch up, followed by cover up. This is nothing at all to do with how science works, and this has no place at all in science. And don’t forget all the taxpayer money down the drain.

Mistakes and botch ups are very OK in science. But refusing to own up to these transforms them to science fraud.

A healthy scientific process?!
Sure. And Bernie Madoff’s a healthy economic process.

Here I have distilled the whole matter to its very basics, so you can explain this to your kids.

Indeed, the greatest talent of the Big Bang Cosmologists has been to bury simple logic under a mountain of complexities.
