I'm presently studying for my Bachelor of Science with the intent to move further after that, focusing on astronomy and astrophysics. I love inquiry, I love science. I love the endeavour to discover what is real. And so it annoys me when people spread disinformation (either deliberately or not) on a range of subjects, but most importantly subjects which have direct impacts on the quality of peoples lives. Science has answers, people who sell fairy tales in books or in bottles do not. Feel free to follow me on Twitter (@TristanJMoir), I'm happy to chat, discuss and debate. Also feel free to comment on my articles!

Natural Stupidity 2: Astrology Bad, Astronomy Good

I know that it might seem that Nick and I have been giving Mike Adams of Natural News semi-fame a bit of a lashing recently, and we have in all honesty.

As with all brands of unscientific nonsense, there are too many who find … Continue reading Natural Stupidity: The Rejection of Science for Homeopathy

The Alien Fleet Near Our Sun

If anyone has noticed, I’m finding a lot of my article material by roaming about YouTube.  I tend to do it quite a bit.  Yesterday I came across an alien enthusiast  video by one DarkSkyWatcher74 titled “Nibiru Mothership – Large UFO Fleet Gathering Near Sun???”  I kept the triple-question-mark in there because the lack of … Continue reading The Alien Fleet Near Our Sun

A Doctrine of Hate: The Westboro Baptist Cult Is At It Again

There’s really no other word to describe this so-called “church”.  It is a cult headed by one Fred Phelps, consisting primarily of his family.  It is an infamous organisation of bigots who couch their hatred for, more-or-less, everything in the “unwavering” truth of the Bible—or, at least, their particular interpretation of it. In a nutshell, … Continue reading A Doctrine of Hate: The Westboro Baptist Cult Is At It Again
