[Discuss] BLU's SEO

I'll give you the point on that. I do tend to favor the idea that 
psychology is in fact a science. I want it to be a science. This 
certainly taints my opinions about it despite knowing full well that 
some of the most impressive psychological experiments cannot (or likely 
will not) be replicated.

The pedant in me says that one run of an experiment does not make for 
science. The scientific method requires repeated experimentation and 
observation with consistent results before an hypothesis is validated. 
This does suggest that much of what's come out of psychology isn't 
science at all, it's just Freudian and Jungian mumbo-jumbo. This isn't 
good for the proponents of the idea that marketing is a science, is it?
