…Of course, there is a downside to the percieved authority of science. Namely, even though people recognize its authority, they don’t bother to try to understand it. As a result, a great many people apparently find it impossible to distinguish between actual science using impenetrable, sciencey-sounding jargon and absolute bullshit using impenetrable, sciencey-sounding jargon.
Case in point: this is a selection of an actual published, peer-reviewed paper*:
“Our requirement of periodicity in imaginary time can be viewed as a kind of consistency of quantum states in these two domains, or the finiteness of the semiclassical underbarrier transition amplitude between them (remember that the Hawking periodicity requirement is based on the absense of conical singularity which is, in its turn, motivated by the regularity of the semiclassical distribution).”
This, on the other hand, is nonsense created by a random number generator:
The quantum gravity dampeners reverse the auxiliary singularities near the regions. You need to invert the gravity dampener. Fluctuating the weak time-matter field catches fluctuations around the strange zone. There is an enhanced plasma conduit near the vortex which affects special fluctuations within the critical charge. The sensor array core has been contained! The extending plasma conduit next to the galaxy.
