Publisher's Summary

If you listen to any political argument, you're eventually bound to hear something like: "The science is settled on this." Or: "Just look at the statistics!" Or: "There have been studies that say..."

You'd think we were living in the golden age of science and reason. But the truth is far more sinister, says Austin Ruse. We're actually living in the age of the low information voter, easily misled by all-too-convincing false statistics and studies. In Fake Science, Ruse debunks so-called "facts" used to advance political causes one after the other, revealing how poorly they stand up to actual science.

    "Fake Book"

    Although the author claims he will return the real science back he did exactly the opposite. Despite my agreement with the author in a question of left propaganda and methods, I was amused how much the author used from left's arsenal in this book by himself. He swept under the rug scientific publications which do not support his agenda and superimposed the ones which did. Conveniently dismissed facts from peer review journals claiming that those journals are politically biased and used the facts from the same journals in next chapter if they are in his favor. Forgive me for excessive quoting but :
    "The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry is commonly based on empirical or measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning."
    I am sorry for the author, but he did fail all the scientific principles in this book.

    "An Enigma of a Book"

    Although the content of the book has true validity I surely could not finish it and thats not to say, that you will feel the same way. I found out how important a good commenter is to a book on Audible, the key to my sanity.

    "A Lifetime of Pet Peeves Released in a Burst"

    I thought the book might simply be a quick cash-in on the huge fake news output of the Left that was exposed during the last election (and which they have not learned from - they've only redoubled their efforts - such as trying to redirect our attention away from their huge fake news output with the comparatively minuscule effort of the Russians - if true), but instead I found the book a release of a lifetime of outrage.

    The author covered a lot of ground, and from what I've observed in the world, I found the author spot-on in most areas (and not surprisingly, the areas he seemed more well-versed in (fake political and social polls, the attack on the traditional family, the transgender comedy, the homosexual gene, abortion (which spurred a new insight by me - the human fetus is human, it simply lacks higher consciousness - of which it still has in development - so lawmakers can reassess it from there), sex (which reinforced another insight I had - that porn is sex without love or commitment - and don't say you already knew that, too - you didn't), divorce, gay parents (which is only an issue as long as humans remain clueless - and they still are, to the last), GMO's, poverty, fracking (which most people know little about, yet they oppose it based in media hype), the doomsday scenarios of global warming, fake crowd science, but I found that he was off the mark in the one area he was weak in - that of global warming being caused by humans (the recent and still-rising spike is unmistakable) (that is, if the spike I saw was not just another bit of fake science from the Left...).

    "Too Political"

    Harps on the 2017 election, not a scientific endeavor.
    There are better sources for these topics. It's mostly political propaganda. Constantly telling the reader that all problems are the result of the monolithic boogie man know as "The Left". It's unfortunate that it can't recognize and stick to the science.
