Really?. And how much money did we toss down the toilet over the fraud of cold fusion?.

And I can take a half hour drive to see a fission reactor that never produced any energy. While I am paying for the worthless bastard being dismantled in my electric bill.

Did the scientists involved know they were stuffed clean full of blueberry muffins... yep... did that stop the fraud?.. nope ....

We don't even want to go into the fraud of medical research..

Or billions on space programs that don't work.... to get the ball point pen?.

Eventually religion finds it's fraud too, but certainly not any slower than science.
