What are your more specific plans, I wonder, Justin? That is, are you intending to pursue a bachelor's degree in, say, biology? Or do you simply want to take a few science courses? For many years I worked as an academic advisor to adult college students in the Vermont State College system, and I teach expository and creative writing to adults in the University of Maryland's online baccalaureate program.

Some adults who contemplate enrolling in a bachelor's degree program are moved by a specific sort of enthusiasm like yours, because they realize they need a validating credential or because there's some aspect of formal learning they feel a special hunger for. One thing to remember--if it's a degree you'll be seeking--is that a liberal arts degree is a comprehensive and broadening degree, one that will oblige you to earn credits in all areas of a liberal arts curriculum. Of the 120 credits generally required for the BA/BS degree (at 3 credits a course), only about 30-40 are likely to be in your science concentration. You'll be taking courses in literature, languages, art, history, math, and so on as well. Is that the path you want to take?

5 Famous Scientists Dismissed as Morons in Their Time
By Anthony Jurado
Nov 21, 2010

Every nutjob in the world with some out-there theory thinks he's Galileo, rejected for daring to think different. Virtually all of them are, in fact, simply insane.

Yet, there have been brilliant rebels who put their own world-changing ideas on the line, only to end up like Doc Brown in his alternate timeline: humiliated, ridiculed, ignored and/or straight driven to insanity.

And regarding the fake research, how do we know THAT study wasn't faked? :o)

Regarding the formula for walking and burning calories, I wasn't able to uncover the "fundamental formula" itself. Was anyone else?

From Epiphenom

European Christians more likely to Accept Evolution

"According to a new survey, conducted over the internet, Christians in Europe are more likely than Christians in other parts of the world to accept evolution. What's more, Christians the world over were much more likely than atheists to say that they were absolutely certain in their beliefs about evolution and how the universe came to be"
