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.

Ozone Therapy Debunked – Part 1

April 25, 2017 // 3 Comments

One of the scariest things I have ever experienced happened to me as I was running to shelter from a storm in Pennsylvania. It was the summer of 2012 and I was in the middle of a wood trying to light a campfire when, without warning, the heavens opened. Luckily for me and the people I was with, shelter was not far away and we all began to run towards it. As we did, I started to get a strange feeling on my arms as if something was tugging at my hair. I stopped to look and saw that my hair, even [...]

My Experience Giving a ProGMO Talk at Skeptics Events

April 18, 2017 // 9 Comments

For decades now, organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth have done a fantastic job convincing the population that GM-food is harmful to humans. To do this, they have quoted scientific literature that claims GMOs have been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to these claims? What do the papers these organisations are promoting really say, and do they have any flaws? Or, in actual fact, are GMOs [...]

#164 – MMS’s Fake Malaria Trial

April 16, 2017 // 0 Comments

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/164.mp3 Did the red cross really test MMS (an industrial bleach) as a treatment for Malaria in Uganda? The nerds review a MMS sales pitch that makes heavy use of this idea. Shockingly they find it is bull and serious questions and possible criminal charges need to be put to the makers of this trial.     [...]

Why Does Greenpeace Like the Watermelon?

April 9, 2017 // 0 Comments

Last year, I asked the very silly sounding question, ‘Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?’ As absurd as it sounds this is probably one of the most important questions to be asking the organisation right now. This is because it exposes a double standard that lies at the core of Greenpeace and shows their opposition to GMOs to be hypocritical and irrational. Today I would like to ask another silly sounding question that, once again, exposes weaknesses in Greenpeace’s arguments against [...]

#163 – The Skeptical Community

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/163.mp3   Grant Richie Jr DDS joins the Nerds this week to talk about the Skeptical Community or if you prefer the ‘Skeptical Community?’ is it a thing? Should it be a thing? What can we do to make it better is that not really [...]

Contrail vs. Chemtrail

March 28, 2017 // 11 Comments

As many of you know, I am in the middle of researching for a series of videos debunking the chemtrail conspiracies. However, it has just occurred to me that I have never explained contrails (also known as aviaticus cloud formatting) despite producing several blog posts and podcasts debunking the chemtrail conspiracies. I plan to rectify this now, however, before I do I should probably talk about the difference between chemtrails and contrails. This might surprise you to hear, but everyone I [...]

March 26, 2017 // 0 Comments

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/162.mp3 What’s the deal with Vaccine courts? Are manufactures of vaccines completely exempt from being sued by patients who are injured by vaccines? The nerds are joined by lawyer Travis who walks the two legal dunces over the complicated legal [...]

A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” – Holes & Where Did The Buildings Go?

March 22, 2017 // 3 Comments

It has been well over a year since I sat down and tried to wrap my head around another chapter of Dr Judy Wood’s copyright infringing magnum opus ‘Where did The Towers Go’. In all of the chapters I have covered so far some effort was made to make her theory on how the towers collapsed convincing, which cannot be said for chapters 9 ‘Where Did The Buildings Go?’ and chapter 10 ‘Holes’. Virtually everything said in this section of the book can be debunked with a few Google searches [...]
