Could be a nice article, with examples like UFOs etc. Just a flyer at this point to see what might develop. User:Fredbauder

Religious miracles and results of alternative medicine like acupuncture or even Reiki might fit here as well. Wesley

It would be very useful to show some examples on the page; it's very vague right now. -Branddobbe 04:19, Mar 12, 2004 (UTC)

How is the false Iraq WTC link damned knowledge? It definitely hasn't been supressed, as it has been implied by the Bush administration to help justify their current activities in the eyes of the public. Additionally it hasn't exactly been discounted so much as proved false. Actually, given that it is provably false, I don't think it can even be called knowledge, damned or otherwise. Anyhow, I think it's an irrelevant fact that doesn't exemplify damned knowledge.

I changed "popular culture" to "dominant paradigm", because paradigm leads into 'The Structure of Scientific Revolutions' and the whole paradigm shift idea that shows how damned knowledge comes about, and how gets rehabilitated into the mainstream.
