If someone tells you to read an article called Deep Adaptation by Jem Bendall - it's crap. It was rejected for publication because it's full of dodgy science, unscientific conclusions, and its reference list is full of news articles rather than scientific papers.
@pelagikat So when we want to tell someone “here, look at this article which explains more”, even if we want to link to a science publication for that link, the person receiving it probably can't see the article because it's not on the internet.
So most people can only send links to science journalist articles instead of the real science. With all the pros and cons of that.
@bignose I understand the problems with paywalls, but this author is within a university and presumably has access to scientific publications. He's deliberately chosen to base his article on bad science, and is even using his publication rejection as a badge of honour.
