    Philosopher Peter Boghossian and mathematician James Lindsay perpetrated a hoax intended to expose gender studies as a sham, and they succeeded. The respected professors submitted an absurd article — which blamed penises for global warming — to a respected, peer-reviewed, academic journal — which gullibly printed it. In perpetrating their hoax, the professors said they sought to expose academia as shallow, credulous and painfully politically correct.

    Cogent Social Sciences is a BS pay-per-pub outfit.I wouldn't get too worked up over it.

    When they get their hoax paper into the NE Journal of Medicine, let me know.

    Cogent Social Sciences is not a "respected, peer-reviewed, academic journal." It's a rubbish pay-to-publish journal, and these kind of journals have routinely published works lacking any scientific merit.

    Once again, you've been played for a fool, whodey. How do you feel about that? Do you think it might be time to consider whether you are sufficiently critically evaluating everything you read in the gutters of the Internet?

    I'm saying that you are - once again - consuming and regurgitating obviously false stories. Does it not concern you that you are so gullible that this happens over and over and over and over and over again?

    Whatever amuses you, whodey.

    This kind of publication does not get into well-respected journals, which employ rigorous peer review and editorial oversight. That would be like saying CNN will air stories suggesting there are child abuse rings in pizza parlours just because InfoWars does.

    Still no thoughts on being deceived again? No apology for peddling blatant lies?

    Here is a comprehensive list of things that global warming causes.

    Are all of these causes from "respected" peer reviewed literature as well?

    No? It doesn't concern you at all?

    Well, let's continue this conversation after your next fake news story you post here, shall we?

    Do you guys respect Bill Nye?

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/bill-nye-older-people-need-to-die-out-before-climate-science-can-advance/article/2629163

    He says older people need to die because those are the ones who are the most skeptical.

    After all, they were not taught about global warming 24/7 in school growing up.

    Do you guys respect Hansen?

    http://conservativetribune.com/climate-scientists-cancel-doomsday/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=TeaParty&utm_content=2017-07-17&utm_campaign=can

    He published papers predicting what the effects of global warming would be some 20 years ago. Needless to say they have not come true.

    Now he has pushed the clock back a bit.

    It would be nice just to hear them say, "Yea, we are beyond hope now. Enjoy what time you have", but they never do, and never will.

    I guess what we need here is some sort of "truthiness" list of people and sources we can all blindly follow

    So is it your position that penises do not contribute to world wide gullible warming?

    Show us your evidence.
