Science Heresy

A journal of empirical science.

In recent times the physical sciences have become orthodox, authoritarian, sterile and dysfunctional, much like the mediaeval church. This is the outcome of the rigid institutionalization of science and incestuous peer review. Scientists guard their patch jealously and regard any truly new idea as a threat to the established order. Discovery has given way to territoriality and there is little cross-fertilization between disciplines.

Furthermore much that passes as "science" is, in reality, a form of mathematical idealism whereby a theory only has to be internally consistent in order to be accepted as fact. Mathematicians have a cavalier disregard for experiment and observation.

We provide a forum for evidence-based science. We promote alternative ideas in science; science "heresy" that is either new, ignored or actively suppressed by "orthodox" science.

Science Heresy now comprises the following on-line journals:

Geophysics Heresy

Ornithology Heresy
