Phony ‘Social Scientist’ Exposed–By Me

See the source image

In 2005 The London Times made a stir by reporting on a paper by a “social scientist” that supposedly “proved” that the Christian religion is harmful to any nation that believes in it.

It took a lot of digging and interviewing, but eventually the truth came out: the whole thing was phony.

For one thing, the guy was not a social scientist. He was a free-lance illustrator of books about dinosaurs. For another, the “scientific journal” in which he published his findings was very far from being major league. And for another, his findings were ca-ca.

My report is a little long, but it’s thorough and I hope you read it. I think it does show what we’re up against.

To wit, lies and flim-flam.

Looking back on it, I’m amazed by the candor with which the Times reporter, Ruth Gledhill, answered all my questions. Today I’m afraid they’d just call me a Hater-Biggit and double down on their lies. But in 2005 there was still some vestige of professionalism left in nooze reporting.

  1. I am back from my vacation in Lake Havisu City, AZ. After viewing all that desert brown it is wonderful to once again be surrounded by green. Now it is back to keeping up with the news which includes avoiding anything a social scientist would have to say. If I want to know about humans I read the Bible.

  2. Great work, Lee.

    I’ve given up on newspapers. In the last 20 years, I’ve bought newspapers on two occasions; once when I was shopping for a new pickup and the last time was, literally, as a source of packing material. I’m the same with TV news. I can’t remember the last time I watched a TV newscast of my own accord. At this point, I go by preponderance; if a story shows up from many different sources, I tend to take it seriously. If not, well then I usually just forget about it.

    1. The oriignal Greg Paul story showed up all over the nooze media, they were having orgasms over it–and not one of them actually checked it out.

    2. That would spoil all the fun.

      Atheism is as much a religion as any church on earth, and the evangelize every bit as much as any religion. They spread their “good news”, which reduces to not having any moral accountability except to human authorities. This harkens back to Eden itself, and from where one’s moral standards come.

      But it’s much more complex that meets the eye at first glance, because there are churches which claim to be Christian, but are teaching humanism and moral relativism. I can’t really blame someone for being skeptical about Christianity, if they think that some of these churches actually represent Christianity, but I think that the far greater issue reduces to human authority vs Divine authority, in the minds of many.
