Don’t even get me started on how wrong this is. So, so, so wrong. I almost just passed out. Not even worth my time to rebut. You are a neuroscientist? You probably think brain scan studies are legit science too. Let me guess you were a co-author on that one paper-”neuroscientists use brain imaging technique to pinpoint area of the brain responsible for [insert vague cross category thing aka criminality, goodness, etc.].” At least it had a large sample size, n=10.

What happened to your profession? Too many Patricia Churchland’s and not enough Robert Shulman’s and M.R. Bennet’s I guess. My advice to neuroscientists, run as far away from the computech elite as fast as you can. They are sucking you down into a pit of crap science from which you may never escape. Or you could try coming up with a new field, “deep neuroscience”, that’s the ticket. Holy crap on a cracker, that is some f’d up sh*&t.
