The loss of genuine scientific method in the mainstream narrative is a cultural reflection of western thinking. The genuine process of seeking knowledge and identifying truth has given way to a new religion some call Scientism. Its a form of pseudo-science that serves a a mock justification for a political agenda. But is the fakery just for the purposes of manipulation or is there genuine error? Or perhaps is there a mixture of the two – where the deceivers actually believe some of their own delusions?
In this weeks Podcast Patrik Holmqvist and Nigel Howitt discuss the many manifestation of the loss of scientific method in the mainstream narrative, offering numerous examples. They also shed some light on the reasons why this is happening.
Some likely causes of the loss of genuine scientific method
- A Failure to think logically
Today we see a widespread inability to think logically among both lay-people and the so-called scientists! For example, epidemiological studies are considered sufficient to claim knowledge with no need to isolate variables in rigorous scientific studies that isolate variables. This is particularly true among those who advocate for veganism or vegetarianism. The China Study being one example. We also see the mainstream virologists conducting their experiments to “isolate” viruses without proper controls that would reveal that it is the process itself of growing the cell culture that produces the so-called cytopathic effect blamed on the alleged virus.
The most obvious sign that logical thinking is no longer practiced among the general population is the fact that the majority fall so easily for logical fallacies. Most people will believe the narrative for 2 main reasons that have nothing to do with logic. Firstly, because everyone else believes it. And secondly, because the message is championed by authority figures. Appeals to majority and appeals to authority are not logically valid arguments.
- Contradictions don’t exist in reality.
The fact that contradiction cannot exist out there in reality is the basic principle of all logical thinking and rational thought. Contradictions only exist in the minds of men who do not resolve their mental contradictions. Whenever a contradiction is found in a reasoning process or in opposing claims it should be investigated because it shows there is an error. A contradiction is a warning flag showing that reasoning is incorrect. The contradiction must be resolved by identifying which of the contradictory claims is false. Two opposing claims cannot both be right.
If you knew nothing else this principle would guide you to uncovering an enormous amount of nonsense that passes for knowledge in our current cultural context.
- Unquestioned Assumptions
Assuming things are true is very necessary, and we all do it all the time. But when contradictory evidence is found it should rightly be investigated to resolve the contradiction. Genuine scientific method will always seek to disprove a challenging claim. The truth loves to be questioned because it refines certainty. Only the lie is afraid of questions.
Today we see censorship being exercised where legitimate questions are raised. This is the refusal to allow the questioning of assumptions. This is clear proof that genuine scientific method has been abandoned and that manipulation is being practiced.
- Not thinking in fundamentals
We see the advocates of the virus story refuse to question the fundamental assumption of Germ Theory. This is a theory that has been contradicted by many facts many times. yet still the theory is clung to like dogma. The fundamentals of rocket propulsion theory are held sacrosanct and are not allowed to be questioned, yet they logically show that leaving the earths atmosphere is impossible using this technology because a gas expanding freely in a vacuum exerts no force.
- Failure to integrate
Integration is the basis of all knowledge acquisition, its how we learn, and build knowledge on existing knowledge. It is the reason that all knowledge is contextual and no knowledge can exist out of context. Yet the climate emergency advocates entirely drop the context of the historical record in their assertions that current CO levels are a problem. They are failing to integrate the facts that it has been much warmer than it is now in the past, and that there has been much more CO2 in the atmosphere in the past. In spite of both these facts we are all still here! This dropping of context is a failure to integrate.
The thinking error lies with the lay people who fall for the nonsense. Those politically peddling the nonsense are liars.
- Failure to think in principles
Principled thinking is out of fashion these days. Ask yourself how many people question their doctor about the fundamental cause of their disease or ailment? Most simply accept the prescription for antibiotics without a thought. Even the Doctor will very likely not be conscious of the fact that he is treating symptoms and not even ask what is the root cause. This is perhaps the most obvious example of not thinking in principles.
The climate emergency lobby deny the principle that CO2 is plant food and very literally the gas of life. They try to make CO2 seem like something evil when in fact it is essential for life on earth.
Some principles of Genuine Scientific method
- No conclusion should ever be held exempt from revision in the light of new information that challenges it. This must be a BASIC PRINCIPLE of a RATIONAL THINKER.
- Epidemiological findings must inform proper scientific studies with controls that isolate variables.
- Facts come first, then theories and hypotheses are explored to explain them. NOT the other way round.
- Questioning of assumptions must be encouraged and seen as a positive offering in the pursuit of truth. This is what the peer review process should be all about.
Pseudo-Science is dressed up all fancy to impress the ignorant. But just like the man behind the curtain in the “Wizard of Oz” story, it is all illusion and fakery. One can only wonder how long it will all go on for and how much suffering will need to be endured before humanity is willing to thinking the unthinkable – that we have all been duped, and for a very long time.
