Brilliant idea. Get on that, would you?

Seriously: We use meta-analyses to help make sense of apparently conflicting epidemiological studies. Perhaps we should do the same for these guys?

Problem is, as Taubes recently pointed out in his post about philosopher of science Kuhn, every rare once in a while the crackpot outsider in the minority is the only one who can see through a particular vertical's cant and dogma. This is rare, and it is usually to our advantage to dismiss such people. They are almost always a waste of our time.

But a survey like yours really wouldn't help us notice when a man or woman like that is right.I still think it would be fun to read, though.
