Forger Mark Solonin. "On the dangers of cucumbers"


Harmfulness of cucumbers


“Practically all people suffering from chronic diseases ate cucumbers. The effect is clearly cumulative.



99,9% of all people who died of cancer ate cucumbers during their lifetime.

100% of all soldiers ate cucumbers.

99,7% of all victims of automobile and aviation disasters, ate cucumbers in the two weeks preceding the fatal accident.

93,1% of all juvenile delinquents come from families where cucumbers were constantly consumed.”

"On the dangers of cucumbers." "Physicists keep joking" - a collection of scientific humor.

This joke study describes the fallacy where you have many arguments, each of which is individually correct, they are different, and the final conclusion is incorrect.

This is because the facts in this article are biased. We have chosen only what confirms our point of view. And the facts themselves are not causally related to the issue under discussion, this is not clear, it needs to be further substantiated. An incorrect conclusion is obtained, despite the fact that there are many arguments, and they are correct.

Simultaneity does not imply causation


If events occur simultaneously, this does not mean that there is a causal relationship between them. This needs to be checked separately. In statistics, this is called "correlation does not imply causation" (from English - correlation is not imply causation)

Example. A group of scientists are investigating the factors that influence the development of lung cancer. Many possible causes are being explored. Age, area of ​​residence, habits. Scientists notice that most people with lung cancer carried a lighter in their pocket. Based on this, a prescription is created - "do not carry a lighter with you, it causes lung cancer."

Even though wearing a lighter, which usually means smoking, often occurs at the same time as developing lung cancer, the lighter does not cause it.
This is another example of a mistake in a highly specialized field. The existence of an error and how to fix it is unknown to most people. It will be hard for them to notice.

In the last article, I talked about the fact that each field of knowledge works with its own type of information. If we use the methods of technical sciences in stories, there are inaccuracies and errors that will not be easy to deal with, and the reader, not the author. With a properly developed starting position, one can quickly and at first glance logically draw false conclusions.

Cognitive distortion Mark Solonin


Returning to Mark Solonin, it should be noted that, of course, not everything with which he confirms his position is facts. He does not make any additional verification of the connection between the facts that he uses and the conclusions. He often simply lists the facts and his arguments. Then there is a pause, and he goes back to the topic as if the conclusion is obvious and already done. It turns out such "in the garden of elderberry, and in Kyiv uncle."

This further complicates criticism. If the causal relationship is not clear, then it needs to be assessed somehow. This estimate will be incorrect because there is no connection, which makes it possible for an effective response.

Criticism of Solonin's work should be based not on checking his research, but on finding facts that he ignored.

For example. Usually, if country A wants to attack country B, then it pulls troops to the border with country B. If we see that country A has pulled troops to the border with country B, this does not mean that A wants to attack B. Although this is possible . To understand whether A is planning an attack on B or not, you need to study all the facts. Some of them can be explained in other ways, some are just a coincidence.

In the case of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the book of the Israeli historian Gabriel Gorodetsky "The Myth of the Icebreaker" (1995) describes in detail the reasons why it is impossible to come to the conclusions of Suvorov / Solonin.

You can object by saying: “Well, so be it, but if these facts are connected in an unclear way with the conclusions, then this does not mean that Mark Solonin is wrong. It’s just that he expresses his position in such a way, he’s so used to it, it’s so convenient for him.”

The fact is that this error (correlation is not imply causation) is also a cognitive distortion. Human thinking is imperfect. The brain is constantly optimizing, choosing the easier way, the easier way. In some cases, he uses the wrong tactics and makes mistakes. This is a property of thinking, even if you know about it, you will still be inclined to make this mistake. Therefore, such an argument, when not all the facts are used and it is not shown that they really are relevant to the issue under consideration, is not suitable.

Another cognitive distortion is the "clustering illusion". If you put together, by biased sampling, facts that lead to the same conclusion, then the brain will think that "there is something in it."

Another cognitive bias is the availability heuristic. The easier it is to draw a conclusion, and we have a biased sample, the more reliable it is considered.

Texas sniper's mistake


Another is the "Texas sniper's mistake." We take a fake, select all the facts and some false, but difficult to refute statements that are associated with this fake. All other facts are ignored. We compose a story from them, after reading which, the reader will come to the conclusion (our fake), on the basis of which all these facts were selected.

A large number of cognitive distortions hidden in the text indicate a desire to mislead.

In addition, apparently, there is a provocation to emotions. The reader remembers not only the conclusion, but also the emotion in emotional memory. Therefore, when he sees the opposite point of view on the Internet, he remembers these emotions and begins to criticize it.

And so on…

Can Mark Solonin be called a forger?

              Well, yes, "inviting and keeping" ... Do not remind me with what fountain pens you write, on whose PC you work, but in general, whose production is your house lined with goods by 80-90%?

                Remind me, on whose energy are these fountain pens and pry-pry-pry produced? China has learned how to build nuclear power plants. or is the Russia-China joint venture something else? Where from the Chinese in the joint venture only take more, throw further? Maybe you can tell me. how did they build aircraft engines for themselves, including the Air Force? And fountain pens are important, yes ... Legkoprom - it is more indispensable than heavy machinery. Tyazhmash - tfu, no one needs it, pens don’t rivet in any way, if they lock it up!
                Comparing the incomparable - this is China depending on the United States and with all the sanctions imposed on China - it cannot twitch anywhere under the threat of losing the market, and their import substitution has just begun. Somewhere I have already heard about such an inspired miracle, it seems in Japan, can you tell me how Japan is, in the lead, or a colony? So we will count fountain pens, but about what they invited and keep - it doesn’t matter anymore?
                So how, after all, "inviting and keeping" is development? Or just for China?

                  "Inviting and keeping" - both there and here, but the results are something very different. And the Union in the 30s invited, and paid, and adopted experience, and then it rushed itself, so much so that the majority of the capitalists shuddered for their future, so it very timely relied on local revisionists and Mensheviks, who eventually destroyed everything. ..

                I wouldn't say "develop". Rather, it creates the conditions for development. They do not have many purely state-owned enterprises. Yes, and those are mostly very independent and work entirely on market conditions. And thanks to the created conditions, the Chinese authorities can formulate a task - to voice it, get five proposals and select performers. But a similar mechanism operates in the United States. Actually, this is the difference from us: the authorities form the environment, the authorities issue a request. We have the same ... Neither an adequate environment, nor any adequate request.

    Cognitive distortions and scientific philosophy need to be worked out and practiced from school.
    Even without being particularly competent in certain topics, it is often possible to determine the falsity of messages relatively easily, just as the author of the article did. If the narrator admits anti-science, emotions and practices manipulation - immediately into the furnace.

      If the narrator admits anti-science, emotions and practices manipulation - immediately into the furnace.

      Difficult topic. Firstly, we now live in an abundance of information, as Lazarchuk said, "licking the cream off the cakes," about this topic. Therefore, critical thinking atrophies - it's easier not to think about what you read, but to find exactly the source that says what is closer to you or simply more understandable. Such things as "read between the lines" have simply died out, but this is a fact.
      And secondly, with anti-science. Even in quite serious scientific works, this thing is massively used. For example, you know that the harm of the so-called. "passive smoking" is not proven at all? No one, nowhere, and never? Now look how many scientific papers are protected and how many publications are not from bloggers, but from quite serious medical workers about this duck. I am completely silent about genetically modified products

        Tell me what unites Enstrom, Cabot, Gorey, Milloy, Levois and Layard? In addition to their attempts to disavow the results of studies of the effects of passive smoking on human health.
        PS The fact that passive smoking does not affect the body can only be said by an alternatively gifted person, since even outside the context of a long-term effect on a person, irritation of the mucous membranes (nasopharynx and eyes) occurs instantly when third-party "exhausts" are inhaled.

          You can respond to the whole article with an anecdote.
          An order came to Chapaev's division.
          Send one person to courses in logical thinking.
          Went naturally Petka.
          Upon arrival, the teacher asks: Who knows what logical thinking is?
          Naturally, no one knew.
          Then he asks Petka:
          Tell me, do you have matches in your pocket?
          There is .
          Then I dare to assume that you smoke. And if you smoke, then you drink, well, if you drink, then you love women, well, if you love women, then you should.
          (I hope everyone understands what I'm talking about)
          Petka, having understood the meaning of thinking, skipped all three months.
          Arriving at the unit, Chapaev asks him:
          Well, tell us what logical thinking is.
          Vasily Ivanovich, tell me, do you have any matches in your pocket?
          Not .
          So you don't have to.

          Now about the article.
          Definitely some kind of rubbish. Probably VO has nothing more to write.

          Are you talking about yourself? Give an example of clinical studies on the harms of passive smoking. You can not? then on what basis are you evaporating here? Tell me about the differences between the dangers of passive smoking and being around a campfire, and now tell me that humanity has degraded by inventing fire.
          Voila - that's what I meant, a classic, just a typical example of anti-science. "Everyone knows" - he has it instead of evidence. Next - the transition to the individual - "I have nothing to confirm, so I will immediately move on to insults"
          By the way, everything is clear with you ...
          That's the point. In order for passive smoking to begin to influence something, you need to smoke so much that we are talking about smoke, and this is another matter. But about passive smoking, the howl is a pillar, but about the harm of, for example, car exhaust ... Go to any covered parking, in a supermarket, for example ... Have you ever been? So why is it not worth yelling about? By the way. I don’t remember cases of deaths from smoking - active or passive, on the spot, but they die from exhausts every year - and a lot of people

            You can not?

            I can. How old are you? Not the first at all, but the first to become widely known as Takeshi Hiroyama's "six prefecture cohort study". It lasted 14 years, from 1966 to 1979 inclusive, the results were published in 1981.
            that humanity has degraded by inventing fire.

            The dumbest manipulation is to try to tie the fact of the invention of something, to the fact of the consequences of this something.
            Tell me about the difference between passive smoking and campfire dangers

            Right from today, you can keep a fire burning in your room with the windows closed. Let me know how you feel in a month.
            You forgot to answer the question:
            Tell me what unites Enstrom, Cabot, Gorey, Milloy, Levois and Layard? In addition to their attempts to disavow the results of studies of the effects of passive smoking on human health.

            But about passive smoking, the howl is a pillar, but about the harm, for example, car exhaust ... So why is it not worth howling about?

            And what, someone considers automobile exhausts not unhealthy?
            The difference is that quitting smoking is easier for humanity than quitting road transport. Since quitting smoking will not make everyday life less convenient, and giving up cars will make it very much less convenient.
            By the way. I don’t remember cases of deaths from smoking - active or passive, on the spot, but they die from exhausts every year - and a lot of people

            AND? Is this evidence that smoking is not harmful?

              It’s a lot for me, but I’ll note to YOU ​​that a policeman standing in the center of Tokyo receives an equivalent of three packs of smoked cigarettes per shift in his lungs for a shift, this is back in the 80s, the Japanese didn’t know how they counted ... However, once again, deaths from exhaust in a closed room happen regularly and studies of the harmfulness of exhaust emissions, if carried out, are little known. With smoking, we have the opposite situation. Have you brought Hiroyama? Not a clinical trial, multifactorial is not screened out. What led to such results from a variety of factors is unknown. For example, the same Japanese proved that active smoking means little in oncology - he quit smoking and in the shortest possible time the oncology goes the same as in the initially non-smoking group, that is, smoking did not cause any effect, it is quite possible to draw a conclusion. that another factor - for example, that they smoked because of the nerves, and "all diseases are from the nerves"

              Voila.
              Control group, experimental group - go ahead, on the mice! Then there will be a conclusion.
              As for the harmful emissions...
              Yes, I can prove it. If you want - with real corpses, burned out in a closed room with a working internal combustion engine, you want, by analogy with cries about passive smoking. Carcinogens you say? And the most severe carcinogen is a polycyclic, that's just the thesis I wrote on it, personally and with Biotox - 7 I ran through the streets and then laid out air samples into its constituent components ... It turned out that the highest General Chemical Toxicity in the air in the city of polycyclic and gives, and it directly correlates with the intensity of auto-movement at the sampling point. By the way, I took tests of interest for and in smoking rooms, but this is so, for general development ... I didn’t shove them into diplomas.
              It was 20 years ago
              and the rejection of cars is very strong.

              From personal transport? Metro, go ahead - and no more than quitting smoking, and the benefits for trade within the city - without traffic jams - will block any smoking

                Tokyo police officer gets in the lungs for a shift the equivalent of three packs of smoked cigarettes per shift

                Again, an attempt to replace the harm from smoking by comparison with other harmful effects.
                Not a clinical trial

                belay approximation in this case as an argument is strong wassat
                For example, the same Japanese proved that active smoking means little in oncology - he quit smoking and in the shortest possible time oncology goes the same as in the initially non-smoking group, that is, smoking did not cause any effect

                Did you read the article on your link diagonally? Nothing that the fact that the risk decreases after quitting directly shows that smoking affects the likelihood of developing lung cancer (not to mention that you can’t reduce everything to just lung cancer)
                Moreover, right on the link you have written (!!!)
                This means that the effects of smoking per dose are relatively stronger at lower doses, ie, second-hand smoking or light smoking.

                What is "second-hand smoking" need to be explained?
                Control group, experimental group - go ahead, on the mice! Then there will be a conclusion.

                And so it has been done more than once.
                From personal transport? Metro, go ahead - and no more than quitting smoking, and the benefits for trade within the city - without traffic jams - will block any smoking

                You will talk about the metro when it is done in each settlement. Why only private transport? What about buses? Or without them? And the trucks that bring EVERYTHING to the city for life and take out ALL waste? Or without them? On bullock carts? Where can you get so many oxen?

                        Tell me what unites Enstrom, Cabot, Gorey, Milloy, Levois and Layard? In addition to their attempts to disavow the results of studies of the effects of passive smoking on human health.

                        What led to such results from a variety of factors

                        That is why such examinations are carried out not among dozens of subjects, but among hundreds of thousands. This eliminates the fact that this "multiple factors" will appear simultaneously in all smokers and not in non-smokers.

        For example, you know that the harm of the so-called. "passive smoking" is not proven at all? No one, nowhere, and never?

        Well, yes. If one person inhales and exhales something unprofitable, then it is also necessary to prove that the person standing next to him inhales the same "unuseful" ...

      Mark is an educated person

      You can agree.
      He received his secondary education at school N88 in the city of Kuibyshev (now Samara), in those distant times the school was attached, by Soviet standards, of course, they were called Jewish behind their backs.
      Now times have changed, the era has changed, and once the former Soviet secondary school N88, now it is called the elite gymnasium N2 of Samara.

      fa2998. "Place your clips" You recalled a joke. One man has a bitch, a shepherd whelped. Such beautiful puppies. In general, a godfather comes to him, looked at the puppies. Kum give me a puppy! Kum answered him - figs to you, not a puppy, did not come to the bitch. That is, he did not make puppies, they will not give him a puppy. Since Alexander did not put his clips on the Internet, he has no right to have his own opinion.

    This is the one who himself says the following about his books: "Well, what a hard-working person can master these 500-600 pages in small print, with tables, graphs and maps of past battles."

    Criticism of Solonin's work should be based not on checking his research, but on finding facts that he ignored.

    The reader has been waiting for the entire article for the author to reach these very facts that he requires, but he did not wait.

    The article is somehow castrated, the most important thing is missing - concrete examples, when, according to the author, M. Solonin admits falsifications.
    Although the beginning of the article is undoubtedly sensible, and the features noted by the author can be applied not only to Solonin, but also to other writers who call themselves historians

      He is a representative of the Russophobic intelligentsia, a pathological anti-Stalinist; before, he just wrote opuses that obscured Soviet and Russian history, but with the beginning of the SVO he dumped somewhere and is engaged in anti-Russian propaganda (on all sorts of resources).

    Even more terrifying is that those who consumed cucumbers in the early 19th century died out to one. Together with them, all the dinosaurs died, such a horror from fresh cucumbers, but those that were pickled did not harm so much. All who lived in the seas and oceans remained alive. Then the people realized that it is best to eat vodka with small-holed cucumbers. Those who ate cucumbers incorrectly, incorrectly beat on the eggs from the wrong side, fought among themselves. They can read about the country of Lilliput, there is all the evidence.

    Solonin has irresolvable contradictions in his main statements.
    For example, the people did not want to fight for the Stalinist regime and surrendered en masse, but the USSR won the war because it left the enemy dead on the battlefield.
    Or the Soviet economy is very bad, but the Wehrmacht destroyed an unprecedented amount of Soviet military equipment because the Soviet commanders fought poorly. You can make up all sorts of explanations for these incompatible statements, but they will always be unconvincing.

    Offhand elementary conclusions from the article.
    1. The collaboration of Mark Semenovich with some "think tanks" is indirectly confirmed. Some researchers spoke about this in the early 00s. It is very unlikely that such a complex propaganda, based on knowledge in several areas, could be created by a "Soviet" engineer.
    2. Using the example of falsifiers like Solonin, one can see that the Cold War continued in the 90s and 00s. There was an active training of such "historians".
    3. the article is generally not entertaining. it makes no sense to analyze individual examples that in general will not say anything about Corned beef, well, he made a mistake in one place, well, he lied in another, but the idea itself remained. So let me give you an example, so what? It's not about history, it's about statistics. Solonin, and this is what I wanted to say in this article, speaking on historical topics, makes a mistake in statistics. Not in history. Understandably? For statistics, Solonin is lying. And for a historian, he is simply a biased amateur who does not have a historical education.
    4. You can try to look wider and look for the same "historians", "psychologists", "economists". And to understand how difficult everything is with the truth.

    Briefly. Mark Solonin develops the idea that the Soviet Union, he believes, was going to attack Europe in 1941. To do this, he considers the processes of social, economic, military in the USSR and Europe. He cites a number of results that he believes confirm his point of view. From the point of view of statistics, these results, which are numerous, have no direct bearing on his main idea of ​​blaming the Soviet Union for the start of World War II. Because events can happen at the same time and still not be logically related to each other. For example, Gabriel Gorodetsky in "The Myth of the Icebreaker" says that a large number of tanks was the result of industrialization, and not preparation for war. Those. There were also many tractors. Solonin simply chooses convenient examples and does not pay attention to others.
