PREFACE NOTE: PES Network defines "Free energy" as sources of energy that are ubiquitous, clean, inexhaustible. These include solar, wind, geothermal, tide, wave, which are well-established. They also include other quests for such energy. The following "skeptic" comments/directory of resources, has to do with new claims that are not yet established in the mainstream as certified science.
There was an error working with the wiki: Code is true skeptical inquiry in which one questions the veracity of claims unless they can be empirically tested.
The following are not typical characteristics of skepticism:
# Resorting to logical fallacies in order to justify rejecting the position or argument of another.
# Assuming unverified or incorrect facts to justify a predetermined skeptical conclusion.
# Obfuscating easily verifiable facts to justify a predetermined skeptical conclusion.
# Instituting hurdles against new theories by "moving the goalposts".
# Displaying a reactionary, hostile and intolerant stance regarding new ideas.
# Judging a hypothesis or theory without investigation and insisting on ignoring the details thereafter.
There was an error working with the wiki: Code and PowerPedia:Pseudoskepticism refers to the use of skepticism in an extreme and to the detriment of others. Pseudoskepticism takes the form of merely obfuscating what might otherwise pass as a valid point of view. The term was gained widespread use in the 1990s by efforts of Marcello Truzzi and Ed Storms.
