Science or Crime?

My Journey into the Dark Side of Science

About the Book

We know that scientific research has changed the world. But now science needs to change itself. Sometimes success breeds complacency. Modern scientists trust too much and verify too little, to the detriment of the whole humanity, and of science itself.

Science assumes that knowledge is good for its own sake, and therefore takes as its sole purpose the acquisition of knowledge. But shouldn't knowledge serve practical and ethical concerns, like ending conflict and feeding the hungry? Could some knowledge be interesting, but ultimately irrelevant? Isn't there some knowledge we might be better off without, such as how to build nuclear weapons or bioweapons?

Too many of the scientific findings that flood the academic ether are direct results of poor analysis and dangerous experiments. When you read my findings in this book you'll discover that a lot of scientific research is poorly thought through, poorly executed, or both.

In this book, I identify and explain various crimes that are committed in the name of science, some of which could obsess you for months. Finally, I show various ways to separate science from pseudoscience, and how to stop dangerous and out-of-control science.

About the Author

A. B. Lawal
A. B. Lawal

I am multi-talented. As an engineer and also a computer scientist, I have over 15 years of teaching experience in software development and machine learning. In the last few years I have helped the IT industry develop various useful programs on Windows, Linux, MacOS and PLCs (programmable logic controllers). I always build solutions from scratch and go as far as modifying open source software to meet my client’s needs. As an embedded systems expert, I design embedded Systems that optimize performance and cost against complex requirements. I leverage Stratify OS (a POSIX like RTOS for micro-controllers) to quickly and cost-effectively develop complex firmware applications in Python and C/C++ languages. I work with a dedicated team of Python programmers who look into specific automation problems and proffer solutions to them.
