Is anything we know about anything even real?

>When will we be able to genetically engineer ourselves to be smarter?

Surely not soon , maybe in next few centuries.

"According to a survey published in the journal Nature last summer, more than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist's experiments. The reproducibility difficulties are not about fraud, according to Dame Ottoline Leyser, director of the Sainsbury Laboratory at the University of Cambridge.

That would be relatively easy to stamp out. Instead, she says: "It's about a culture that promotes impact over substance, flashy findings over the dull, confirmatory work that most of science is about."

She says it's about the funding bodies that want to secure the biggest bang for their bucks, the peer review journals that vie to publish the most exciting breakthroughs, the institutes and universities that measure success in grants won and papers published and the ambition of the researchers themselves.

"Everyone has to take a share of the blame," she argues. "The way the system is set up encourages less than optimal outcomes."

>This happens all the time, retards

"Science" is failing as an institution. But at least it's diverse, right?

When does /sci/ wake up to the idea that their precious science is fanfiction


I wonder how much of "settled science" is actually junk
