Intellectual dishonesty

Just a quick blog to call your attention to these (yet again) excellent posts from the guys over at the The Science of Sport blog:

This situation reminded me something I wrote some weeks ago:

"[Some people], besides being the Internet champions of the “evidence-based” methods, choose to ignore the scientific evidence in favor of their own beliefs. It seems that science only exists when it serves their interests, and that their ego-driven pseudo-science is more important than the peer-reviewed real science. If you add to this the public ad-hominem attacks, it all amounts to a classical case of intellectual dishonesty."
