Did someone actually spend money to do this study? What next, spending money to disprove astrology, palm-reading, and phrenology? People believe this kind of hokum because it comforts them somehow. I doubt that any scientific studies will dissuade people from continuing to believe in it.

Next, they will study the outcomes of muirgeo’s patients after he posts to Cafe Hayek. Fortunately, they will drown in data.

Can you ever know if a seemingly absurd statement contains any truth? The point is such Universal statements about the moon only lead to more unanswerable questions. This study could not logically disprove such an illogical assumption.
