We are all familiar with the term fake news. It’s time to become familiar with the term “fake science,” or Zombie Science, as Dr. Jonathan Wells calls it. Zombie Science is an extremely popular postempirical science — motivated by materialism. While zombies are make-believe, Zombie Science is real — and it threatens not just science but our whole culture.
