Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Is civil engineering the lowest of the lowest when it comes to engineering?
Bucky Ball, I would like to say a couple of things. I worked as a mechanical engineer for 35 years almost exclusively for a governmental agency. The pay may be crap in comparison when you are working but now in retirement I have a nice defined pension not hammered by the ups and downs of the market.

I will also say that you are correct that you are governed by bureaucrats. I was fortunate to be generally under the administration of competent engineers. But, during the last 5 years of my career when a major project had been funded, the money sucking incompetents showed up and all of a sudden massive meaningless meeting took up much of ones time. It could make one cynical.

Well, then there are signalling engineers...

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Here's a new one I hadn't heard of before - Information Assurance Security Engineer. Pays well. GirlyBoy just got a job starting @ 63K.
