Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

Political Science and the cut of Scientism

No science but metaphysics and story telling.

by StFerdIII

 

 

Scientism and the cult of 'peer review' and money seeking [you approve mine and I will approve yours!]

 

Drummond Rennie a peer review expert knows that peer review is a joke, writing in Nature, he pleads to “make peer review scientific”. Peer review is corrupt and all about getting published and accessing money.

 

Peer review is touted as a demonstration of the self-critical nature of science. But it is a human system. Everybody involved brings prejudices, misunderstandings and gaps in knowledge, so no one should be surprised that peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific.

A long time ago, scientists moved from alchemy to chemistry, from astrology to astronomy. But our reverence for peer review still often borders on mysticism. For the past three decades, I have advocated for research to improve peer review and thus the quality of the scientific literature. Here are some reflections on that winding, rocky path, and some thoughts about the road ahead.

 

Rennie is right about alchemyAlchemy discovered many elements, led directly to chemistry and improved experimentation around the manipulation of chemical substances. It was a necessary precursor to modern chemistry. As he states however, one cannot say the same about the modern cult of science and the nonsense around peer review.

 

Corrupt models yet again [see globaloneywarming]:

 

...neuroscientists have relied on functional MRI imaging (fMRI) to draw inferences about the brain. Patients have been asked questions and told to engage in mental activities while scientists watched areas light up on their brain scans. Too bad researchers didn’t know the software was buggy when they wrote up their results. A new study published on PNAS finds that possibly 70% of the research published in the last quarter century is flawed. “These results question the validity of some 40,000 fMRI studies and may have a large impact on the interpretation of neuroimaging results,” they say. Science Daily reports, “Common statistical methods used to analyse brain activity through images taken with MRI scanners cannot be trusted.

 

So again software models and code are corrupt. Be thankful your DNA is not as bad as what the 'scientists' use.

 

Here again we can see the ignorance of the of Evolution. Evolution screams that 'bugs' or mutations are positive. They take the pond scum to the screaming-mad, globalist-poster-waving, climate professor. In reality they destroy. In software these 'bugs' will make the system inoperable over time, which is why firms spend so much time and money doing 'security patches'. You might have noticed this when windows shuts down your system for maintenance. Be thankful your body does not shut down when DNA repairs itself. Self repair does not occur by random chance. It has never been observed to occur randomly, nor can 'scientists' induce such processes, even in a lab.

 

Science, scientism, evolution, and the cult of death.

 

Conservatives are appalled at the rise of the “culture of death” in western countries (see articles by Wesley J. Smith at Evolution News & Views), but secular liberals—the same ones who love Darwinare all for it. True, Medical Xpress worried about the ethics of killing psychiatric patients, who might be vulnerable, but not about the policy itself. Here’s the shocking conclusion of a recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal: “Perhaps those who advocate for extending access to people with psychiatric disorders may be willing to tolerate a number of potentially avoidable premature deaths as acceptable because access to assisted dying is felt to be so important in principle. However, that argument must be made explicit and debated publicly.” Just tell the public, in other words, that you have to break some eggs to make an omelette.

 

The Nazis said the same.

 

The cult of science which purports to be rational is anything but. Today big science, funded by big government supports the following cult doctrines:

 

-Killing babies [murder of babies is called 'abortion', a meaningless term].

 

-Exterminating the old, the weak, the sick [called euthanasia, which sounds so benign, the Nazis and Communists did the same].

 

-Support sexual confusion and psychologically distressed sexual deviancies as homosexuality and transgendered theology.

 

-Plant food a trace chemical which falls out of climatic processes causing the same [follow the trillions of printed dollars which are at stake].

 

-A big bang which started the universe from nothing [it is impossible that nothing creates something and order does not erupt from chaos].

 

-DNA software code arising by chance in a soupy pond.

 

-Pond scum magically becoming a Moslem raping a white girl in Sweden.

 

-Soft Dino tissue lasting 78 million years due to 'iron' preservation.

 

-The perfect placement and size of the moon, due to a big rock chaotically hitting the earth and the resulting debris coalescing into the perfect spherical shape and size just the right distance from the earth.

 

-and one million other myths.....

 

Scientism is a cult that was used by the National Socialists [Nazis, were Atheist, Evolutionist, Socialist]; and their brethren the Communists [ibid]; to 'sell' their theologies. One of the reasons the Germans were such enthusiastic supporters of the Nazis was the general belief that science, reason and progress supported the Nazi claims of Evolutionary progress [survival of the fittest, genetic perfection]; and that the Germans were somehow the champions of science [read Evolution]. As Hitler said, Catholics must be killed for opposing science [he meant of course Darwinism, of which he was a devoted cult member].

 

It does appear that humans are truly ignorant of history.
