Alex Jones is not the only guy making a career out of conspiracy theories. They are everywhere on the internet and here’s why you have no choice but to ignore them.


In the philosophy of science, falsifiability or refutability is the capacity for a statement, theory or hypothesis to be contradicted by evidence. For example, the statement “All swans are white” is falsifiable because one can observe that black swans exist. Wikipedia

What does falsifiable hypothesis mean?A hypothesis or model is called falsifiable if it is possible to conceive of an experimental observation that disproves the idea in question. … If there is no experimental test to disprove the hypothesis, then it lies outside the realm of science


Karl Popper

Sir Karl Raimund Popper was an Austrian-British philosopher, academic and social commentator. One of the 20th century’s most influential philosophers of science, Popper is known for his rejection of the classical inductivist views on the scientific method in favour of empirical falsification. Wikipedia

In so far as a scientific statement speaks about reality, it must be falsifiable; and in so far as it is not falsifiable, it does not speak about reality
