We live in a modern world of technological advance, and we think of society as an enlightened civilization because of it. But much of the technology we enjoy today is based on science that’s over a hundred years old. Despite our impressive technology, and partly because of it, much of what passes for science today is nothing but superstition wrapped in the trappings of science.
The most glaring example is the great anthropogenic global warming fraud that blames man-made carbon dioxide for climate change and severe weather. It was this superstition, a belief not supported by scientific observation, that caused the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to “above normal from November through January across much of the lower 48 states.” Meanwhile, real scientists and almanacs which based their predictions on scientific observations of sunspots and natural climate cycles tested over centuries predicted the bitterly cold, snowy winter we’ve experienced.
One of the factors crippling scientific advancement is outright fraud. The , “A review of retractions in medical and biological peer-reviewed journals finds the percentage of studies withdrawn because of fraud or suspected fraud has jumped substantially since the mid-1970s. In 1976, there were fewer than 10 fraud retractions for every 1 million studies published, compared with 96 retractions per million in 2007.”
But not all fraud gets retracted. One researcher discovered out of 53 landmark publications in cancer research, the foundational research subsequent research builds on, the results of 47 of those studies . This is an epic disaster. If cancer research was a skyscraper, it would collapse, destroying nearby buildings and killing everybody in its path. And if you think about it, that’s what cancer research has done. After 50 years of fighting the war on cancer, cancer is .
There’s no way to count how many people have been killed by bad medical research, but we have some insight. A recent study of beta-blockers, medicines used to treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure, concluded that a medical procedure based on flawed research . Some might consider this genocide.
The New York Times exposes another recent, long-term study which concluded that mammograms , “One of the largest and most meticulous studies of mammography ever done, involving 90,000 women and lasting a quarter-century…found that the death rates from breast cancer and from all causes were the same in women who got mammograms and those who did not.” Worse, “the screening had harms: One in five cancers found with mammography and treated was not a threat to the woman’s health and did not need treatment such as chemotherapy, surgery or radiation.” I congratulate these researchers for their bravery. The political correctness health care police will make sure they never work again. Medical research has gone so far off the rails, doctors advise women without breast cancer like Angelina Jolie to . Witch-doctors seem rational by comparison.
But the biggest problem with modern science is much of it is just wrong. Physicist Richard Feynman , “First you guess. Don’t laugh; this is the most important step. Then you compute the consequences. Compare the consequences to experience. If it disagrees with experience, the guess is wrong. In that simple statement is the key to science. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your guess is or how smart you are or what your name is. If it disagrees with experience, it’s wrong. That’s all there is to it.” It doesn’t matter how many people believe the wrong theory either. Consensus means nothing. A theory that does not match observation is wrong.
A theory that makes incorrect predictions is also wrong, and if you read any NASA science reports, you’ll find NASA scientists are always surprised by observations. Their theories are wrong. The Big Bang never happened. Gravity does not form the structures in the universe. The sun is not powered by fusion. The fundamental theories, regularly presented as fact, we’ve been taught about cosmology, solar physics and the solar system are wrong. Nobody has ever seen a black hole, a neutron star, dark matter or dark energy because they don’t exist. Those superstitions are modern versions of nature spirits, ghosts and goblins. Everywhere astronomers look, they discover hot plasma and magnetic fields caused by electric currents in space which form galaxies and power stars, but cosmologists deny the electric currents exist despite observations.
The biggest problem with science is government’s virtual monopoly on funding it for political benefit and to enrich establishment scientists. History will judge the US government as the world’s greatest promoter of superstition and obstacle to science like the old Catholic Church.Establishment scientists who control government’s funding pervert peer review to bury science that falsifies their theories. They blackball scientists who falsify their theories. Their computer models operate as modern shamanic masks, having no more relationship to reality than computer games about flying dragons. And the people suffer for it.
