It's A Good Day

A "science" journal gets shutdown.  Beware that there are other "science" journals out there which already have conclusions and then seek to find evidence to support those conclusions.

That isn't how science is done.  In science, we gather as much evidence as possible, then draw objective conclusions based on the evidence.  If new evidence arises which suggests our previous conclusions were wrong, we modify our previous conclusions to take the new evidence into account.  When there is seemingly contradictory evidence, we assess the strength of both sides, and follow the stronger evidence.
