The Dysology Hypothesis
Letting scholars get away with publishing fallacies and myths signals to others the existence of topics where guardians of good scholarship might be less capable than elsewhere. Such dysology then serves as an allurement to poor scholars to disseminate existing myths and fallacies and to create and publish their own in these topic areas, which leads to a downward spiral of diminishing veracity on particular topics.

Discovery of the World's Greatest Science Fraud
In 1831 a Scottish laird, botanist, orchardist, farmer, grain dealer and Chartist named Patrick Matthew published his discovery of the ‘natural process of selection’ in his book entitled ‘On Naval Timber and Arboriculture’.
Amazingly, 27 years later, in 1858, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace each claimed to have independently discovered the exact same theory. Both Darwin and Wallace admitted Matthew had fully enunciated natural selection, but claimed no prior knowledge of Matthew’s book, and to this day Darwinists and other scientists have simply taken their word for it that they were not lying plagiarizers and science swindlers.
A bombshell for the history of scientific discovery
Read my blog on the BestThinking site, which uniquely reveals the newly discovered facts about who Darwin and Wallace knew who had both read and cited Matthew's book and its unique ideas.
