About Myles Power (751 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'.

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #3

September 28, 2021 // 0 Comments

Recently Leuchter appeared back on Rizoli’s internet show where he attempted to counter some of the claims I made against him. Now I realise that this point I am beating a dead horse with a fish I just shot in a barrel but I find their brand of denial so distasteful and bizarre that I can’t stop poking these geriatrics with a stick and watch them [...]

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #3

September 27, 2021 // 13 Comments

One thing I have always found revealing about those online who like to cosplay as Nazis, but who in reality would be seen as untermensch by their peers is their tendencies to flirt with legal action against those who have publicly embarrassed them. Mike Enoch, Jesse Dunstan, and Alex McNabb of the TDS (formally The Daily Shoah) podcast told their audience that they were investigating legal action against me after I showed their assertion that the homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz were too [...]

5 Cancelled Projects

Sometimes things don’t go to plan. Projects that sound like they are going to be fun and entertaining turn out to be dull as dishwater. Here are 5 projects I have cancelled over the years and explanations [...]

Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #2

June 29, 2021 // 10 Comments

Fred Leuchter is an American manufacturer of execution equipment and prominent Holocaust denier who is best known as the author of the Leuchter report, a pseudoscientific document that alleges there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. To reach this conclusion, Leuchter tested for cyanide residue using a type of analysis which was not appropriate for producing accurate results on samples he collected in an uncontrolled manner. Normally I would say that people like him design experiments [...]

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

February 27, 2021 // 2 Comments

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 // 2 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 // 9 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 [...]
