The Broken Science Initiative

Let’s Start with the Truth.

The Broken Science Initiative is calling attention to the current state of modern science. It’s broken. It’s void of validation. Its deductivist approach stimulates results that cannot be replicated and its scientists are stuck in a publish or perish purgatory, finding “significance” at all costs.

Who We Are

Introducing the
Broken Science Initiative

Greg Glassman and Emily Kaplan launched The BSI in 2022. In May 2022, Glassman explained the fundamental flaws in modern science and the impetus for The BSI.

Part of the Initiative is gathering frustrated scientists, philosophers and thinkers on these topics. Sign up to learn more about upcoming events.

Modern science is source and repository of man’s objective knowledge. Scientific knowledge is siloed in models. A model maps a fact to a future unrealized fact as a prediction. A fact is a measurement. A measurement is an observation tied to a scale with an expressed error. An observation is a registration of the real world on our senses or sensing equipment.
