There is an epistemological argument showing CRT to be of very low verisimilitude, that is of low scientific credibility, such as to have it dismissed as science.
On reflection, the epistemological argument, while valid, judged too complex. Hence this paper, which offers a simple yes/no question/answer analysis as to why CRT needs to be dismissed.
The foundation principle is that if the quality of the ideas applied to manage circumstance is improved, we will get better results, better science → better technology → better results.
