the dismal psuedosciences

To be acceptable science the theories propounded must be supported by empirical evidence. Three disciplines purporting to be science do not meet this criteria. Economists, psychiatrists, and sociologists each try to use mathematical projections to quantify their theories and all fail miserably. Texts of the three disciplines are filled with formulae purporting to represent reality but merely give a surface gloss to suspect scholarship. It is unfortunate that news organizations trumpet edicts from these groups without caveat or referance to uncertainty.
