    Rough month for the people who deny scoliosis genetics and tout GIGO studies!

    OMG.

    When it rains it pours.

    It is possible to not even be a little bit right.

    I expect there to be a lot less nonsense posted on these topics going forward. We will see.

    No that was a reference to the two threads I started this month, one an elegant set of studies pointing towards a particular gene and the other blowing the Danish GIGO study out of the water.

    Those two threads alone and all by themselves SHOULD shut down a significant fraction of the nonsense that gets posted in the research forum on these topics.

    This thread is pure gloating over the disproving of anti-science claims. You should delete it as moderator. LOL.

    I understand people who need to deny scientific facts for emotional reasons. But they should keep their addled anti-science views to themselves and not post nonsense to public fora.
