I don't think you understand what constitutes evidence and proof for your claim. You are saying that the studies which show SIS are effective are based on the biased judgments of the researchers. You have not: 1) clearly demonstrated that bias, 2) after establishing bias shown that it affected research outcomes, nor 3) provided any evidence whatsoever to the contrary, namely that SIS are ineffective.

All you're doing is throwing around ad hominem attacks (results of the studies are biased because the researchers are biased; yet, you've provided no evidence demonstrating that) to try to discredit the preponderance of evidence that supports the effectiveness of SIS.

You want people to buy into the idea that everyone is biased, therefore all results must be biased. Suffice it to say, that's a ludicrous position and it's based entirely on partisan bullshit.

If you want to have an actual discussion, then you need to do what I outlined above. You need to first demonstrate bias. Then you need to prove that the bias resulted in an alternative outcome from what would be expected were there no bias. Finally, you need to produce evidence that the alternative outcome is valid, unbiased, and demonstrates that SIS are ineffective. You've done none of that and have instead asked people to accept your wild ass claims about "faulty" science without actually having any evidence whatsoever to support such stupidity. What you are offering isn't evidence nor reason, but rather mush-brained propaganda.
