Fake Science: The Majority of Experiments by Government-Supported University Psychologists Cannot Be Replicated

Karl Marx

Most government-supported universities are dens of pro-government sentiment masquerading as social science. Government “research” funding supports thousands of university psychologists who churn out studies that–unsurprisingly–support various socialist and pro-government theories and expansive welfare-state economics.

Pro-government voices in academia are becoming increasingly shrill. Witness some of the hysteria surrounding the government’s “manmade-global-warming” claims. See here.

But science must be repeatable to be valid. A scientific experiment should produce the same or similar results each time it is conducted.

Now a major study has tried to repeat some of the most important studies published in the most prominent psychology journals. And shockingly: “a whopping 75% of the social psychology experiments were not replicated, meaning that the originally reported findings vanished when other scientists repeated the experiments.”

See here.

An international team of experts repeated 100 experiments published in top psychology journals and found that they could reproduce only 36% of original findings.

The study, which saw 270 scientists repeat experiments on five continents, was launched by psychologists in the US in response to rising concerns over the reliability of psychology research
