”PEER REVIEW” Peer review is a general term that describes how proposed scientific ideas enter the main body of accepted science (established scientific truth or solid science being developed). The most common form of peer review is refereed publication in reputable journals. In physics the most reputable journal is The Physical Review Letters. This is where several initial LIGO discoveries were published, and other papers that positively build on LIGO were published. Then there are the reviews that underlie the granting of funds. These are thought to be some of the most thorough reviews since many groups are competing for limited funds. Then there are the prizes and accolades which ostensibly follow a review process. LIGO went through many such review cycles with flying colors. So how can one sustain an allegation of fraud against LIGO? Very easily. The COBE Satellite discovery also passed through all these review processes with flying colors. So did the BICEP2 discovery. Both were patently bogus discoveries. So the “Peer Review” argument as a shield against charges of science fraud can be very readily dispatched in a court of law. 47
