## Welcome to Ask Science

**Everything that you wanted to know, but were afraid to ask.**

Ask any question related to science.

Stay friendly, but no censorship on questions or answers!

Controversial questions and role-playing allowed.

Use <tags> to state the viewpoint and seriousness, in both questions and answers. Use [label] to specify the specialisation of science (like [Biology] or [Physics]).

<EX5> Explain like I am 5

<PR> Explain with peer-reviewed articles.

<WIKI> Explain via wikipedia.

<HS> Explain like I am on highschool

<UNI> Explain like I am on university

<PHD> Explain like a PhD (fun)

<POP> Explain like a popular science article (fun)
<MAD> Explain like a mad professor (fun)

<ZEN> Explain like a Zen master (fun)

(Or invent your own for fun)

With this sub I want to encourage more humour and self-criticism in science. People can take science much too serious. Feel free to give a thorough answer to a silly question or reverse.

Don't insult someone, or attack them as a person. Respect each other! It is OK to disagree.

Try to prevent logical fallacies and logical biases. Scientific literature is full with them.

In my scientific career, I noticed that answers are different, depending on the level. Reality is often much more complex and different than expected. Censorship, peer-reviewing, futurism and corruption have reduced the self-correction of science. This all breaks science apart.
