Welcome to the John Diamond Memorial Page
“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” – Carl SaganW
One of the things that distinguishes science from religion is how it handles error. SCAM is essentially a religion, but Lynne McTaggart claims that WDDTY is a science-based journal. Given that much of what she covers is fraudulent or pseudoscientific, and we’ve shown dozens of examples (out of the many hundreds that must surely exist) where WDDTY content is flat wrong, it follows that there must be many examples where WDDTY has apologised, corrected or clarified articles to avoid their readers being confused or misled.
Here’s a list of all those that we’ve found so far, feel free to send along any you find.
