I enjoy what the MythBusters are doing for science, but the fact that neither of them have any idea what they are doing seriously disturbs me. I’ve enjoyed them for a while, but have recently looked into their scientific background, and have found none. I like that they have spread the word of science, but I can’t stand idly as they ruin the scientific method and basic scientific integrity. What happened to the heros of Tesla, Crick, Flemming, or even Tyson? Where is the joy for science these days?
I feel like all the articles people click on are about superficial “stars” who don’t contribute to society at all besides being rich. What happened to the days when having a contribution meant something?
