Category: Stupid research
Scientists have created a nano-electronic circuit which vibrates without any external force. Just as a guitar string vibrates when plucked, the wire — 100,000 times thinner than a guitar string — vibrates when forced into motion by an oscillating voltage. The surprise came when they repeated the experiment without the forcing voltage. Under the right […]
Forcing people to enjoy (or dislike) music. Free will. As long as it is… free!
Researchers from the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital of McGill University have proven it is possible to increase or decrease our enjoyment of music, and our craving for more of it, by enhancement or disruption of certain brain circuits. In order to modulate the functioning of fronto-striatal circuits, the researchers from the lab of Robert […]
Decline in religion, decline in morality.
Religious decline does not equal moral decline, says researcher.  How original. Stupid prejudiced science reaches to stupid prejudiced conclusions. We must be careful to compare things with the same standards. Morality has not declined based on our standards now, because our standards have demised into a pulp of liberalism. But morality and ethics is […]
…! (science saying nothing)
Northwestern University professor Nina Kraus shed light on one of the brain’s most complex tasks – making sense of sound – during the recent Falling Walls conference in Berlin. “The sounds of our lives change our brain”, said Kraus, an inventor, amateur musician and director of Northwestern’s Auditory Neuroscience Lab in the School of Communication. […]
Changes… Changes? [OR: Why science is a tautology?]
Brain of astronauts changes while living in space. (1) So deep… Like saying that something changes when its environment… changes! Wittgenstein said that mathematics were mere tautologies and conveyed no real message or knowledge. Perhaps we should start thinking the same about sciences… What is is. And you will never know anything more…
