Martin Luther King: Science Advocate

Martin Luther King: Science Advocate

Commented Jan 18, 2012 at 09:05:03 in Science

“Great preacher indeed but Martin Luther King failed terribly to support his own ideas, you may be aware of his writings concerning the Jews. One cannot make a difference on MLK and Adolf Hitler on the matter. There 's been also a suspicion he plagiarized his thesis. Since you are an atheist you might want to read "God is not Great" by Christopher Hitchens.
Your blog is great overall, btw, and I will be keeping a close eye.

“Adreas, which writings of his are you referring to exactly? I'm not sure if there are others, but there are many letters that people claimed he wrote that were found to be a hoax. While I'm not claiming he is exempt from criticism in any way, I think it is only fair to keep the information factual and not based on speculations. Maybe you are referring to the German Christian reformation leader Martin Luther, who was a know anti-semite?:

“Hey, since you are ranting about the scientific method why are you quoting authorities instead of facts? Vegetarian diets can be healthful? Well, probably but they can also leave you in a wheelchair. Please quote facts next time, not authorities http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17616346

“This was due to a nutrient deficiency--one that can also affect meat eaters--that could easily have been prevented on a vegan diet. Anyone can get sick on any kind of diet if they don't make appropriate food choices.”

“I am sorry but you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Your nutrition and hydration advice are absurd . Just to 2 hours to repair muscle and to refuel with glycogen? I 'd like to see a reference on that. On the "dehydration" part , even more ridiculous. Dehydration is not that common, and thirst is a more than adequate biological mechanism to protect us from being dehydrated. People don't need to be patronized on when and how much to drink.I 'd like to see some references on the other claims you are making too. One thing is scientifically proven again and again to protect against DOMS and that' s frequent training,please google "Repeated Bout Effect".
