    I think we just finished a topic where falsification has become less of a thing now that Popper acknowledges he's had his lunch handed to him while those who read only philosophical analysis of scientific thinking still persist in shoveling that shit simply because they haven't got off the cause and effect bandwagon of scientism. Sometimes -sisms need to be sworn at. Letting it dangle.
    Friends, Romans, and countrymen...we come to bury Popper not praise him.

    I found Popper's book Objective Knowledge An Evolutionary approach to generally match my experience.

    Scientific truth is as much a subjective social process as an empirical experimental process. If you rejct testability then creationism becomes science.

    I go by Popper, the only reasonable objective truth is an experiment. As discussion centered on the experiment widens and propagates it becomes increasingly subjective. QM many worlds. Philosophical -isms speculating on experiment.

    Sounds like somebody is cranky from a touch of constipation. A fiber supplement might improve the disposition.
