Intellectual honesty is an applied method of problem solving in academia, characterized by an unbiased, honest attitude, which can be demonstrated in a number of different ways, including but not limited to: One's personal beliefs do not interfere with the pursuit of truth; Relevant facts and information are not purposefully omitted even when such things may contradict one's hypothesis; Facts are presented in an unbiased manner, and not twisted to give misleading impressions or to support one view over another; References, or earlier work, are acknowledged where possible, and plagiarism is avoided. In a thread a person stated something which negated Einsten's equivalence principal. Before that he poked fun at an idea which referenced the outside of a quasar being "like" the outside of the universe, by referencing magical unicorns in an effort to twist his own position on the subject. The other user quickly responded by twisting magical unicorns into Schrodinger's entanglement ideas. The opposing side insulted the user by calling him metaphorically challenged in an ironic sense of determination. I don't stand for that type of dishonesty. Especially when I'm being told conservation of energy need not apply. He twisted facts, presented his own personal beliefs in a negative manner and was anything but personable when relaying his references. My main complain is personal beliefs from one side interfered with the pursuit of truth, as ideas were given against mainstream that were ill received and dealt with at an emotionally biased manner.
