SCIENTIFIC BULLSHIT – HOW ‘SCIENCE’ IS USED TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC

https://www.wakingtimes.com/2018/09/20/scientific-bullsht-how-science-is-used-to-deceive-the-public/

“[T]here was a shocking study published in the Public Library of Science Journal  that found “up to 72%” of scientists admitted their colleagues were engaged in “questionable research practices,” and that just over 14% of them were engaged in outright “falsification.” … [And] between 1977 and 1990, the FDA found scientific flaws in 10–20% of all the studies they audited… [Also] scientists at the Thousand Oaks biotech firm Amgen, set out to double-check the results of 53 peer reviewed landmark published studies in their fields of cancer research and blood biology. What they found was shocking; only 6 of the 53 studies could be proven valid. That means almost 90% were flawed, yet passed off to the public as fact.

In other words, there’s a lot of scientific bullshit floating around…

This becomes especially concerning when we consider how “science” seems to have replaced organized religion as the new authority that should blindly be obeyed in many ways. People speak of it as if it is infallible, and anyone who questions the high priests of science are generally attacked, degraded, and dismissed as modern day heretics.

But science, just like any religion, is not a god that only speaks unadulterated Truth. It is far from being infallible and is constantly in need of being updated, upgraded, challenged, revised, and changed, for the simple fact that science is subject to the narrow confines of mankind’s tiny flawed human perception; which is forever growing and expanding — and easily skewed by things like prejudice, pride, and corruption.

In and of itself, science is obviously inanimate and can do neither good nor bad because it has no mind of its own. It is not a person, so we need to stop talking about science like it is a super hero. It is simply a vehicle that requires a driver, and the destination obviously differs from one driver to the next…

“Science” can be used to deceive us — has been used to deceive us — and should always be questioned as a result. Scientists obviously need money to conduct their research, and corporations who place material profit above human life have plenty of it. The hand that gives usually controls the hand that takes.

Until we design a system that promotes unadulterated education, more than it does propaganda and ignorance; and rewards integrity more than the willingness to do anything for “money,” this type of pathetic human behavior will persist.”

  1. Excellent points above. People need to think and a healthy skepticism is justified. But, too many people are slothful when it comes to thinking, and thus, they are easily misled.

    By the way, it is not just science that has been corrupted. History, official history that is, is largely propaganda that keeps people in the dark on many important events, and this allows people to continue to be exploited by the elites.
