Need Data to Help Create Alternative Science Wiki

Has science taken a wrong turn? If so, what corrections are needed? Chronicles of scientific misbehavior. The role of heretic-pioneers and forbidden questions in the sciences. Is peer review working? The perverse "consensus of leading scientists." Good public relations versus good science.

CNPS WIKI
CNPS is starting to create an Alternative Science Wiki, like Wikipedia, and is calling for anyone to help, especially scientists, lay scientists, writers, editors, promoters & supporters. CNPS is the Chappel Natural Philosophy Society, which was previously the Natural Philosophy Alliance. Their website is http://naturalphilosophy.org.

Bruce Nappi is helping organize discussions on the CNPS forum on any science topic of interest. The purpose of forum discussion is to collaborate to produce professional science papers that will be posted on the CNPS Wiki. Several topics are posted on the forum, but more can be added on request.

REQUESTING ALTERNATIVE SCIENCE DATA

What data do you feel science overlooks or misrepresents? And what theory or model does that data support?

Initial preferred topics for discussion are:
Catastrophism: Ancient Global Cataclysm
Mythology: Ancient Myths
Earth Sciences: Global Tectonics
Astronomy: Solar Science

But other science topics may also be discussed.

If you want to post data here, I'll copy it to the CNPS forum. I'll see it it's also convenient enough to post links here.

This looks like a really interesting project.
One addition that leaps immediately to mind is Paleontology - and specifically the so-called "descent of Man" and the extremely predominant "Out Of Africa" theory that is taken as much for pure fact as the dreaded BB theory is in cosmology, and anybody who dares to follow the evidence is in for some very nasty shocks. Just ask Virginia Steen-McIntyre, who went where the facts led at a dig in Hueyatlaco and ended up losing all her work so much so she had to abandon the field altogether.
She even used the same dating techniques that were acceptable when applied to Olduvai Gorge, yet were derided as unacceptable when applied to this site because it came up with a date for anatomically correct modern man in Central America - 250,000 years ago!!

It turns out that the fossil evidence for the current theories would struggle to fill more than a couple of trestle tables and there are an equal amount - if not more - anomalous discoveries that are being swept under the rug simply because they do not fit the currently fashionable theories. Sounds familiar.......again.
Is this the sort of thing you are looking fo?
You will never get a man to understand something his salary depends on him not understanding.
