Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Science Reporting

Dr. X said, “On Earth an object falls at 32 feet per second squared.”

The Dr. X part of that sentence is unnecessary. But in the MSM it is always reported that way.

Tested scientific theories are not opinions, I would say they were facts but a theory is more than just a fact. That an object falls in gravity is a fact. The Newtonian Physics, is a theory that predicts how fast an object will fall. The Theory of Relativity shows why it falls that way.

So to anyone in the MSM who reports on science, I say, “Shut-up Stupid. It is nice to give scientist quotes, but quoting them saying the results of a tested theory gives the impression that it is opinion when it is not. Everyone is can have a valid opinion, but only one set of facts is true.”
