Post thoughts to comments.

In these contrasting pieces, two authors provide differing argumentation regarding whether the replication crisis, p-hacking, and similar well-documented issues indicate science is broken or working as intended in a self-correcting process.

Bad science is a big problem esp if money and greed overrides safety of a population. Manipulating research data even before it goes to stats is nothing new. They control and approve everything. The chief scientist is the one in charge...not the data.

Scientific misconduct is nothing new. Modern analysis has speculated that Johannes Kepler fudged data to bolster his case that planets have elliptical, not circular, orbits. This was in the early 1600s. What is relatively new is that science is not just a hobby of wealthy noblemen, but a career and an industry. Science is a source of fame, job security and corporate profits now. The magnitude of the corruption of science has been a frightening theme explored here on the main page.

Society has taken for granted that scientific knowledge increases at a steady rate. This has been true for centuries. Scientists rely on observational tools to make discoveries and scientific discoveries have led to improved tools (computers, lasers, gravitational wave detectors). This feedback loop has kept the forward march of progress going unabated.

However, much of the low hanging fruit has been picked off and what remains will require more investment than what came before. For example, the Higgs boson was predicted to exist in the 1960s, but it wasn’t experimentally detected until 2012 by the Large Hadron Collider. This was a multi-billion dollar effort requiring a gigantic particle collider. Future discoveries won’t be any easier.

When you have more and more scientists trying to discover ever more elusive knowledge, there’s bound to be honest mistakes made and papers retracted. Add on all the perverse incentives of academia/industry and you get fraud, too. It’s encouraging to read in these articles that efforts are being made within the scientific community to improve the process of scientific discovery. As science gets harder, it will need to get better.

I completed the level 2 course at CF Vise in Council Bluffs IA with Pablo (aka short stack) whose a mix of Scarface and Jean Claude Vandamn and Becky (aka the bikini model)!! I have to say it was a phenomenal course the energy laughter and discussion helped make me a better coach in all aspects. I noticed a complete change in my overall approach this in this AMs classes.

My only regret was not getting a picture 😔

Man, what a great course! I just completed the L2 in Wilmington, NC at Crossfit Reignited. The venue was perfect for the training, and Chuck, Lindsay, and Fern were bottomless reservoirs of knowledge. Not only did I get tools that I could apply immediately (like literally 0530 the next day), but further insight into methodology, programming, and time management. Plus we had a pretty diverse group with great presence and attitude! In true Crossfit fashion, we worked hard, had fun doing it, and came out better on the other end! Truly worth every penny!

Vraiment heureuse d'avoir pu suivre la formation Level 1 à Nakama d'Ivry sur Seine (France).

Débutante dans le domaine, les formateurs et l'équipe ont su me mettre à l'aise.

Le professionnalisme des encadrants a été très appréciable. Cette formation m'a définitivement convaincu des bienfaits de la méthode Crossfit et je souhaite la propager pour aider les autres a être en meilleure santé tant physique que psychologique.

Encore merci aux coachs!

Great memory of an incredible weekend: the CrossFit Level 1 seminar in Nakama, Ivry-sur-Seine, France supervised by a team whose mastery of coaching is truly inspiring. An extraordinary experience that really shook me and gave me a good idea of ​​the level of requirement that it takes to train and train others.

Despite my 48 years, I still wanted to learn, to improve and now to transmit.

A huge thank you for the kindness and professionalism of Elie, Jessica, Davs and Nanette!

Not sure about the purpose of this analysis. Is CrossFit departing from science?

On the contrary. This is CrossFit identifying "bad science".


In 2007, Greg Glass published, "Understanding CrossFit" and describes CrossFit as relying on empirical data that is observable, measurable and repeatable.


The argument against CrossFit, it's nutritional recommendations and the methodology have uncovered academic fraud. Sadly, as we are learning from the likes of Uffe Ravnskov, Timothy Noakes, and many others, this problem is systemic.


So, CrossFit is not saying science is bad, the methodology is built upon it, but that there is bad science.

I believe the purpose of this is to show how easy it is to publish biased information. Lets say for example a supplement company says you need 2g of protein per body weight and 2.5g to gain muscle. They can fork out a lot of money to a physician and get a study published to prove that.


Then what happens is everyone thinks they NEED 2g of protein and its hard to eat that much protein so they need.....supplements.



Also, its really easy for companies with lots of money to prove their product not harmful.


I think we all know that a honest mistake can and will always happen. Through some of those honest mistakes its also proven that a flat out lie or payment can cause skewed research.
