It’s a pretty

impressive intellectual tour-de-force. If you are at all interested in such things, you need to give it a listen.

The major problem, as I see it, is that people generally don’t understand the scientific concept of validity–are you measuring what you think you’re measuring?

Instrumentation is a big deal. Let’s say that it’s 1974 and I put up a thermometer to measure the temperature. It is in the middle of immense grasslands, so there is little interference from other sources.

BUT, come 2021, that thermometer is now in the middle of a mall parking lot–it is surrounded by asphalt for miles around. Needless to say, that area is no longer a grassland.

Do you think that the 1974 readings might be different than the 2021 readings? Yeah, maybe…

See, this is where the scientific concept of validity comes in. And if I adjust the readings to take account of the new conditions, upon what is that adjustment based? And just who decides the magnitude of the adjustment? And how is their decision scientific and not raw politics?

See, if I “adjust,” is what I’ve done now politics and not science at all? Not that it’s ALL not politics, but still…


It’s time I

posted some of the many memes I’ve collected. TBH, I pretty much have no idea where I got most of them, so I really can’t give credit…

More will come soon–this is just the first batch.

Epistemology Science

There IS no

science without Christianity. Science depends on Christianity to itself even exist at all! Hence, as smart and advanced as they were, there was no science in Muslim and Chinese cultures–because there was no Christianity.

Bear with me, this is long.

See, according to Christianity, we were made in God’s image. We could understand all of God’s creations. After all, the God that created them also created US to be like him. So God’s actions were comprehensible to us.

But also there was the fall of Adam, and humans became “fallen man.” So even though we could fully understand all of God’s creations, we were “fallen” and were highly prone to biases and all sorts of error.

THEREFORE, we needed a method of discerning fact from human biases. That method of knowing (not subject) was SCIENCE. So there was a great deal spoken and written (see: Sir Karl Popper) about how to reducer error and get to truth.

There were issues of validity and reliability and a culture where EVERYTHING was questioned. So to say, “The Science has spoken” and “Scientists have proven” is perhaps the most unscientific thing ever!

As historically and culturally understood, the Scientific Method is a way of getting over the human weaknesses that came about because of the fall of man and comprehend the mind of God. It is NOT a subject–virtually any topic can be studied in this way. It is a method for reducing error and getting to Truth.

Pandemic Panic Porn Pimps Science

Oh, I’m sure

there are other factors involved. Obesity might be one. Still, 90 times lower? That’s not just obesity…

A major study into the impact of the pandemic on Amish communities has found that Covid death rates among the traditionalist groups of citizens are 90 times lower than for the rest of America. [emphasis added]

The main difference, the study revealed, is that Amish communities completely ignored the guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Amish families did not get vaccinated or wear masks, nor did they engage in lockdowns, social distancing, or any other type of restrictions.

Current Events Science

Yeah, things

are changing. A bit. Rationality is beginning to creep back in…

interview. I highly recommend it! Highly. But the transcript is right there if you want to read it–much faster.

Dr. B is an MD expert epidemiologist AND has a Doctorate in Economics.

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya came to Stanford University at the age of 17 and has never left. In addition to his undergraduate degree, Dr. Bhattacharya earned a doctorate from the Stanford Economics Department and an M.D. from Stanford Medical School. Dr. Bhattacharya’s now a professor of medicine at Stanford and a fellow at the Hoover Institution. Jay is also one of the three authors of the “Great Barrington Declaration.”

Epistemology Science

Science will

make limited claims about what appears to be the case (or technically, what appears NOT to be the case). But religion and philosophy make claims about what SHOULD BE.

Any halfway wise scientist understands that. Otherwise, it is mere Scientism, a sort of armchair speculation–a manifestation of a set of cultural beliefs.

And “scientists” who claim to have proven TRUTH are not actual scientists at all. They need to go back and read Karl Popper! (there is no verification, only tentative falsification)

The ONLY way to “prove” something true scientifically is to account for ALL variables (both known and unknown, including space and time). And that is not possible. In short, there is only correlation, NO CAUSATION.

And anything with a 100% correlation is, by definition, trivial.

So is science useful? OF COURSE! I myself am a scientist. But we need to acknowledge the very real limits on what science can reveal to us.

Nutrition Science

C’mon folks,

pay attention to the science!

Morality Pride Science


now? You don’t say!

NO EVIDENCE. Kick that around your brain for a bit! Chew on it a bit. No evidence.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has found “no evidence” which proves medical-grade face masks protected vulnerable people from COVID-19, according to a new study.

SO, there were very few decent studies, and what pathetic stuff there is doesn’t support masking, so there is NO accumulated scientific evidence for it. There’s not even crappy evidence for it! None. Nada. Zilch.

There is some quasi-religious belief and onanistic rumination, but no actual evidence. …Huh.

Here’s a clue as to why the Left did this (and duped MANY quite decent people along the way):

Those who dared to question the effectiveness of face masks were called anti-vaxxers, far-right neo-nazis, vilified across social media, and sometimes attacked physically.

The Left wanted to crush their enemies, and they knew that once people started docilely going along to get along, these same people would make up fairy tales to justify their faith behavior. As the famous Alexander Pope saying goes:

Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,  
As, to be hated, needs but to be seen;  
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,  
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.

Look, I get it–the ONLY way you could continue to work and to feed your family was to go along. YOU were forced. I totally understand, and there but for the grace of God go I.

I’m NOT saying that people followed this path because they are intrinsically evil. Not at all. But recognize that you got “flipped.” And once you start behaving a certain thing, you almost always come to really believe it. You become “converted.” That’s how human beings work.

But please, don’t allow that to “flip” you forever. Now is your “come to Jesus” moment. Put aside your (literally) damnable pride. Follow the science. Fearlessly ask hard questions. Follow the truth!

Lefty empty-headed shills Media Flying Monkeys Science

Look, pal,

I’ve told you. Over and over. The more you trust the MSM, the less informed you actually are.

Don’t be a slack-jawed rube!

This is science. You are not some hayseed science denier, are you?

The most accurate group was conservatives, with very conservative being the best, and very liberal being the worst. It’s not even close. Liberals have no idea what the truth is, and they believe the very worst to be the case.
