peer review and climate change, creationism

I've also often wondered why the scientific articles/papers I find from creation-science organisations are not submitted or not found in peer-reviewed journals. I suspected a scenario painted by this article, yet I had no idea of the lengths editors would go to to deride or ignore work that would challenge the current popular paradigm.

If you're interested in looking at some of the inner workings of the scientific community that is more blindly trusted than many other fields - read this article. Peer review it yourself. But be sure not to make the same mistakes that this article criticises. Don't throw it out outright because it presents views different to your current opinion of the peer review process.
