Why Big Science Is A Joke Today
It's been shown that *scientists* today are the most intellectually monolithic voting block. They vote for the *same party* (take a wild guess) even more consistently than African-Americans - well over 90% of the time.
So in a convoluted sense they are right that there is *no debate* on scientific issues like anthropogenic climate change....and the utility of the metric system.
Why exactly is there no debate?
That's a discussion for when we have more time.
But today I want you to click here and read (skim by necessity) one scientist's efforts to simply add a comment to some published academic research that he thought was bunk.
A quarter of the way through that litany I thought for sure it was rank hyperbole - if not a joke. But Prof. Rick Trebino claims it's a real life play-by-play of what happened to him when an academic journal published a paper that pretty much contradicted his life's work.
All I have to say is "WOW".
Let this be a reminder that one should always look askance at *what researchers and scientists* sell us these days.
Remember, they are not really scientists in the true sense of the word.
With their rank censorship and obscurantism, they are better described as today's high priests of information.
I submit that Big Government should not in any way shape or form be subsidizing *research* and that every flaw, communicative and otherwise, within today's scientific community descends from that fundamental corruption.
But again, add that on my list yesterday of outrages so far from the public consciousness that they don't stand a chance of ever being debated - no less rectified.
UPDATE - I changed "anthropomorphic" to "anthropogenic". See comments.
