How to navigate creating threads about science and scientific controversies on PQ
#1
A new hidden subforum has been created in Other Topics, "Non-Psi-Related Scientific Controversies", following a proposal of Vortex's. This subforum has been created to discuss scientific controversies that aren't directly or indirectly related to psi, and that are also sociopolitically-related and tendentious.


The following is hopefully to help make the guidelines clear(er) when posting about non-psi science topics, or scientific controversies, on the forum.

a) Threads about psi-related scientific controversies can and should be posted in the relevant subforums on the regular, open main forum. (E.g. "IANDS has been infiltrated by cult members", should go into the NDE subforum).

b) Threads about science topics that relate indirectly to psi, spirituality and metaphysics (cosmology, evolution, possibly others) can and should go into the Alternative Views on Science subforum. (E.g. threads about intelligent design.)

c) Threads about non-psi-related science topics that are not heavily sociopolitically-related or sociopolitically controversial can and should go into Other Topics. (E.g. cold fusion.)

d) Threads about non-psi-related science topics that are or easily become sociopolitically-related or sociopolitically controversial can and should go into this new, hidden subforum (E.g. global warming.) (If you are unsure, ask yourself if the forum members who are not interested in non-psi political discussions or conspiracy theories would like to view these threads, and post accordingly. Global warming and other such non-psi topics can quickly descend into political battlegrounds and that should be the guiding principle here.) To view and post to this group, please follow the instructions in the thread, How to join the hidden politics, conspiracy theory & controversial science subforums.

Moderators & admins reserve the right to move threads on these topics if they feel they are misplaced.
