Cargo Cult Science: The Pot meets the Kettle; both are black…

This post struck me as kind of funny.  In essence a snake oil salesman who claims to have a ‘cure for stuttering’ is trying to undermine a legitimate scientific effort.  If snake-oil salesman says there’s “yet another (disreputable) cause for stuttering”, what he’s trying to do is equalize his crap-perspective with that of more legitimate scientific efforts.  Therefore, his junk cargo-cult snake-oil pseudoscience is just as valid as other legitimate scientific efforts trying to discover nature’s (stuttering) phenomenon.

Yet another example of a negative stuttering prejudice.  He’s banking on the hope, desperation and stupidity of the stuttering community to gain wealth. (You can read about Cargo Cult Science here.)
