Meta Research advocates strict adherence to the principles of scientific method. In particular, all theories, to be scientific, must meet these criteria:

  • add insight and understanding (not just for the author)

  • be in accord with all existing observations and experiments

  • make readily testable predictions, the failure of which will falsify the hypothesis

Meta Research points out failures to adhere to these principles, and decries the now-common practice of patching a theory by adding "helper hypotheses" to keep it viable. Our press releases draw attention to major violations of these precepts, new predictions that distinguish models, and new observational results of such predictions.

To the left is a list of press releases made for the record and the results to date.
