For journals, the appeal is clear, writes Philip Ball for Nautilus: they’ll make a bigger splash if they discover some new truth, rather than if they simply refuted old findings. The reality is that science rarely produces data so appealing.> The quest for publication has led some scientists to manipulate data, analysis, and even their original hypotheses. In 2014, John Ioannidis, a Stanford professor conducting researching on research (or ‘meta-research’), found that across the scientific field, “many new proposed associations and/or effects are false or grossly exaggerated.” Ioannidis, who estimates that 85 percent of research resources are wasted, claims that the frequency of positive results well exceeds how often one should expect to find them138 posts and 40 image replies omitted.

When did you realize that science is all about confirmation bias and mental gymnastics?
They are called niggers, sir.
A h'White nigger once told me that rappers that can free-style are high-IQ geniuses. I assume brainlets believe that you must be really smart if you're well-practiced in anything.

That's not true though.
When the science community (professors, students, universities, laboratories etc.) was much smaller and less commodified (19th and early 20th century) as well as public interest being not nearly as widespread it was still ideal.
Now that the public cares about "science", corporations can just pay the overabundance of "experts" to publish something in their favor to gain trust. Governments will do this too.
Funnily enough, OP is using the standards of empirical science to prove that they're a valuable asset instead of proving the opposite.
Science is pretty much devoid of meaning today. It's just manipulative skewing.
Soyence is soyentific.
Sometimes I've thought about doing independent studies, but I know that probably nobody would read them or care, or whine about the data I'm able to collect with a limited budget.
(you), take care of (you) first. Don't drain yourself of funds that (you) don't have. Support yourself FIRST!!! Everything else will fall into place. Keep tabs on stuff and do what you're able to.
The thing about research is that it is time consuming. You can do it but it usually is tedious.
The fedora tipper fears the independent researcher.
Fedora tippers only listen to what Richard Dawkins think.
People who obsess over science are usually autistic as fuck.
This. The most awkward pseudo-intellectual spergs think science is an authority that applies to everything.
Whats wrong with autists?
People on the internet are mean.
Do you have autism?
Nothing it was just a question, i am autistic
You will never experience the bliss of a wild bustling imagination, normal people like you are born of satan
You poor poor soul
