My name is Myles Power, and I run the educational YouTube channel, powerm1985. I spend what little free time I have sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest, and angrily ranting at pseudoscience proponents. I am also one of the founding members of the podcast 'The League of Nerds' - which I co-host with James from 'The History of Infection'.

“Dr” Joseph Cipriano’s Y-Strap is Dangerous

February 27, 2021 // 1 Comment

Dr Joseph Cipriano is a chiropractor based in Greenville, South Carolina, who in recent years has become somewhat of a minor celebrity after uploading videos of himself to YouTube using a device called a Y-Strap, coining the nickname ‘The Y-Strap Doc.’ Before I start, it’s important to understand the reasoning for why chiropractic is suddenly everywhere. In these modern times where we hunch over screens and phones, back pain has become a common ailment. But that’s not the only reason [...]

Smart Antennas

Once again Merck, a science and technology company, has been kind enough to sponsor one of my blog post, which like before gives me the freedom to talk about something a little bit off the beaten track. Being a YouTuber and bit of a beard it will come as no surprise that I have a rather impressive wifi hub network installed in my house. This network allows me to effortlessly transfer large quantity between multiple devices with a click of a button. It also tells me how many devises are [...]

The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccination Explained

December 30, 2020 // 0 Comments

I am not going to tell you that you should get the new Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine because it is not my place. Only you can make that decision for yourself and a loved one in your care. However what I can do is explain how the vaccine works and counter some of the prevalent misinformation out there so you can make a more informed [...]

The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccination explained

December 26, 2020 // 4 Comments

I am not going to tell you that you should get the new Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine because it is not my place. Only you can make that decision for yourself and a loved one in your care. However what I can do is explain how the vaccine works and counter some of the prevalent misinformation out there so you can make a more informed decision.  The Sars-CoV-2 virus causes Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which like all viruses needs a way of penetrating its target cell. To do this, it is studded [...]

The Death Rattle of the Bleach Cult

November 28, 2020 // 2 Comments

I believe we are witnessing the death rattle of the bleach cult, but we can’t celebrate yet. Their corrosive elixir has become the panacea of choice by the extreme alternative health world and has even been endorsed by some [...]

The Death Rattle of the Bleach Cult

November 27, 2020 // 1 Comment

In March of this year I started my Capitalising on Corona series, in which I pointed a spotlight on the disinformation distributors who have been exploiting the ongoing pandemic to push their agenda and sell their snake-oil. In my third instalment I once again covered old ground and talked about the Genesis II cult and their bleach sacrament (Miracle Mineral Supplement, MMS) after president Donald Trump stunned the world with his comments about injecting. Naturally, the bleach pushers, who have [...]

Lab Grown Meat

November 26, 2020 // 1 Comment

Full disclosure: Merck, a science and technology company, have been kind enough to sponsor this blog post, which gives me the freedom to cleanse my palate and sink my teeth into something a little different; synthetic meat.  Back in 2013 I remember watching a clip on YouTube of food critics chowing down on a $300,000 lab-grown burger and thinking to myself, “Wow! I would love to give that a try.” The burger was created by Dutch pharmacologist and Professor of Vascular Physiology at [...]

“Myles Power Doesn’t Know a God Damn Thing About Chemistry”

October 17, 2020 // 1 Comment

In my previous video post on the subject I mentioned that Alex has found a video which shows that “Myles Power doesn’t know a god damn thing about chemistry”. The video in question is called ‘A Response to Myles Power on the Leuchter Report’, which was original uploaded to YouTube in May of last year, but was taken down for apparently “violating YouTube’s policy on hate speech”. In this video post I am going to point out some of the more egregious inaccuracies in the video, as [...]

“Myles Power Doesn’t Know a God Damn Thing About Chemistry”

October 5, 2020 // 8 Comments

Recently I published a video which defended my work debunking Holocaust denialism, after it drew criticism from white nationalists online. Mike Enoch, Jesse Dunstan, and Alex McNabb of the TDS (formally The Daily Shoah) podcast took issue with my videos on the subject, stating that I wasn’t simply misinformed, but that I was purposely lying to my audience over the events that took place. The trio dedicated hour-long sections in three of their podcasts, where for the most part they just called [...]

Defending My Work Debunking Holocaust Denialism Against White Nationalist and Neo Nazi Mike Enoch

August 31, 2020 // 5 Comments

In the past, I have published three videos investigating claims made by Holocaust deniers that the Nazis did not systematically kill millions of people in their death camps. In these videos I believed that I had crushed the foundation of the Holocaust denialism movement and was surprised when I was recently contacted by a large number of people who were unconvinced by the evidence I presented. Upon questioning them I discovered that they were all listeners of the podcast TDS (formally The Daily [...]

Defending My Work Debunking Holocaust Denialism Against White Nationalist and Neo-Nazi Mike Enoch

August 19, 2020 // 51 Comments

In the past, I have published three videos investigating claims made by Holocaust deniers that the Nazis did not systematically kill millions of people in their death camps. My first two videos on the subject focused on what I considered to be the strongest arguments made in the Holocaust-denying documentary Judea Declares War on Germany. One of these arguments centred around the formation of a blue pigment known as Prussian Blue. This compound can be formed from a reaction between hydrogen [...]

Capitalising on Corona – Colloidal Silver – #4

May 31, 2020 // 2 Comments

Whenever there’s a heightened sense of fear and hysteria, scammers come out of the woodwork to both amplify and capitalise on the general public’s growing unrest. In recent months I’m sure you, like me, have seen examples of price gouging, fake charities, medical scams, and unhinged conspiracy theories regarding the origin of SARS-CoV-2. Governments, journalists, scientists et al have done their best to protect the public, but found themselves playing a thankless global game of [...]

Capitalising on Corona – David Icke and 5G Conspiracies – #2

May 3, 2020 // 3 Comments

David Icke is a former footballer, sports broadcaster, and spokesman for the Green Party, who attracted media attention in the early 90s due to his unusual views. Recently there has been fresh controversy surrounding David after London Live TV published a 105-minute interview with the conspiracy theorist, in which he linked the coronavirus pandemic to 5G mobile phone networks. The full interview published to the London Real YouTube channel was over two and a half hours long, but could easily [...]
