About Myles Power (741 Articles)
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'.

The Death Rattle of the Bleach Cult

November 28, 2020 // 0 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 // 0 Comments

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 // 0 Comments

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 // 0 Comments

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 // 6 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 // 50 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 [...]

Capitalising on Corona – MMS and the Bleach Cult – #3

April 30, 2020 // 0 Comments

In this third instalment of Capitalising on Corona, I’m going to be covering old ground and once again talk about the Genesis II Church of Health & Healing cult and their bleach sacrament, which they market online as a cure-all tonic. I realise that I’ve covered this subject to death, but these quack cultists and their corrosive elixir are showing no sign of going away and, if anything, have been ramping up their activities since the beginning of the [...]

Capitalising on Corona – MMS and the Bleach Cult – #3

April 29, 2020 // 5 Comments

Welcome to the third instalment of Capitalising on Corona, the series in which I point a spotlight on the disinformation distributers who have been exploiting the current pandemic to push their agenda and sell their snake-oil. I can imagine a few of you reading this will be thinking to yourself, “What happened to the second instalment?” Unfortunately, a copyright claim was filed against it by London Real, a company whose slogan is ironically, “Fighting for Free Speech Since 2011”. The [...]

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

April 19, 2020 // 8 Comments

Welcome to the second instalment of Capitalising on Corona, the series in which I expose the parasitic profiteers who are using the ongoing pandemic to push their agenda and sell their snake-oil. With a quarter of the world’s population currently in lockdown, time has never been better for these frauds, as they desperately try to shoehorn their particular flavour of conspiracy and quackery into the current crisis. Some, like Vandana Shiva (who I covered in my last instalment), are master [...]

Capitalising on Corona – Vandana Shiva – #1

March 31, 2020 // 4 Comments

In recent months, quacks and charlatans of all kinds have been rubbing their hands with glee, as a novel coronavirus – which at this moment in time has no vaccine or specific treatment – brings the world to its knees. In an attempt to capitalise on this pandemic, these self-proclaimed experts both rely on, and amplify, the general public’s growing angst, whilst simultaneously shoehorning in their particular flavour of conspiracy and quackery. The spread of misinformation and [...]
