Junk Science

I am sure that there is a lot of junk science being performed in the world but the web site junkscience.com may not be the best place to get an objective evaluation of scientific research:

Unsuspecting visitors might think that Milloy�s site is devoted to criticizing shoddy science, but they would be wrong. If you look at what he �debunks� you will find that the real criterion for deciding what is �junk science� is not the quality of the work, but the political agenda that it might support.
As usual apply your critical thinking skills when visiting sites like junkscience.com and, well, apply them all the time.
