"Willkommen auf dem Wiki der irrationalen Überzeugungssysteme"

Interesting...I may have just figured it out.

Ja, es scheint dass "Esowatch" ein irrationalies Überzeugungssystem ist.

Can one make the argument that failure to distinguish between belief and fact makes one irrational? If so, then this blog is irrational.

Can you explain the science behind your beliefs?
Do you find calling certain "Überzeugungssysteme" irrational without an explanation of your grounds scientifically sound?

Considering the fact that many of us concerned with  EsoWatch Wikipedia  have an academical and professional background in natural sciences, your question seems to be a little bit out of place.
Nevertheless: if you yourself would be a wee bit more precise about your own background and understanding of the word "science" , maybe we could find some common ground...

...

As far as I'm concerned: everything that fulfills the definition of scientic method as given by Merriam-Webster:
Zitat
: principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses

(emphases added).

Calling Esowatch an Überzeugungssystem would be your first fallacy. To even consider the idea Esowatch were irrational is your second.

A belief, when based on examination of factual evidence is rational. In all other cases it is not. A belief not based on fact but still cause for conviction is faith. Esowatch deals with issues on faith, belief and conviction not based on fact. The authors of Esowatch employ rational evaluation techniques to demonstrate irrational and fictional character of such systems, statements and beliefs that portrait a reality that differs dramatically from one supported by scientific evidence.

Someone may still choose to belief in whatever, however, Esowatch at least tried to make them aware of the irrationality their belief is based upon.

All in all. What exactly are you trying to ascertain?
