While the world continues to search for the debris of Malaysian Flight 370, many questions linger. To be sure, these questions can be answered in a variety of ways – but are the answers credible?

Schultz syndrome

The Three Wise Monkeys embody the Schultz Syndrome

One of the most memorable characters from the Hogan’s Heroes sitcom in the 1960s was Sergeant Schultz. This pleasingly plump German officer managed to make us laugh with his famous line: “I see nothing. I hear nothing.” Sergeant Schultz kept himself in a state of plausible deniability, which was quite comical considering that his audience knew his true circumstances.

Autism: looking in the wrong places

Just last week, on March 24, 2014, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta (CDC) released its latest data on autism. After surveying medical and school records from 11 states, the CDC found that autism has more than doubled since the new century began only 14 years ago. Today the condition affects one out of 68 children – five times as many boys as girls. Alarmingly, there was a 30 percent climb in its incidence between 2008 and 2010.

Crime, science, and consequences

For failing to predict this, six scientifsts were convicted of a crime.

Is providing false scientific information ever a crime? Usually not. But in a case that actually came to trial more than two years ago, a court said it was. In certain other cases, it should be.

Methane and mass extinction: not so fast

Yesterday (March 31, 2014), an article offering to explain a purported mass extinction event appeared in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The authors sought to solve a riddle that has annoyed geologists and paleontologists for decades. But they forgot to look at other ways to explain what they saw. And they never once considered that all their colleagues might be misinterpreting, as a mass extinction event, something far simpler.

Jerusalem and Jews: new evidence

Entering Jerusalem, ancient capital of Israel
Print Friendly

Today the Israel Antiquities Authority, and members of the Jerusalem Police, announced a major “bust” the police made on Friday. The police captured two grave thieves, one Israeli and one Palestinian. They also recovered some truly ancient loot: eleven ossuaries, or bone boxes. The suspects seem to have tried to sell these to an Israeli collector. The Antiquities Authority concentrated on describing four arrests, and the value of the recovered loot. But they ought to have  mentioned one other, far more important detail. This loot shows the Jews have the best claim to Jerusalem. Arabs, and Muslims, cannot deny this claim anymore.

Harry Reid show: who’s to blame?

Harry Reid: 'Boss' of Nevada?
Print Friendly

Last night, Bradlee Dean asked who’s to blame for the rise of tyranny in any society. He made an excellent case that those who let the tyrant take power, must blame themselves. Today, as Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) adds outrage to outrage, in and out of the United States Senate, we should ask ourselves that question again. Why is the Harry Reid Show not yet in reruns? Because we keep it going. We not only tune in. We produce it. And we can stop producing the Harry Reid Show.

Sedna has company, and lots of it

About ten years ago, astronomers discovered a single dwarf planet, which they named Sedna, beyond any then-known object in the solar system. Its discoverers half suspected it was a freak of nature. It wasn’t, and isn’t. Another astronomical team now reports a new object, a companion to Sedna. They say further this new object won’t be the last such object anyone discovers. But they miss one important implication. Other teams will likely confirm their opinion by discovering a third Sedna, and a fourth, and many more. When that happens, astronomers will have to admit the solar system is significantly heavier than they suppose. And that extra weight, far from supporting their conventional models, undermines them.
