It isn’t only in medicine: academia losing its roots

Dullar Mush got an alumni newsletter. UCLA Med School’s Sad Drift Into Pseudoscience was a feature.

“When your alumni magazine arrives with a cover story about your school being a “vegan campus” you just know it is going to be one of those issues.”

“You have to wonder how much longer UCLA will remain a world-class med school if debunked woo like this crap is currently being taught. Cripes, isn’t California suffering enough budgetary waste? “

Intellectual integrity is suffering in many fields in the academic world, it seems. Medicine is just one field where desires and wishes are swamping reason and reality. Climatology is another. Even physics is having its issues with people trying to explain cosmology or theory consolidation.
