Here we had a couple of credentialed scientists, in an official scientific publication, with a peer-reviewed paper that said it’s okay to lie about Climate Change if that’s how you get people to do what you want them to do.
The survey also found that about a third of American “scholars” (LOL) thought it permissible and right to discriminate against conservatives in hiring.
What–is “Settled Science” just whatever it is that “everybody” thinks? And can we say, of any place or institution, that the more diversity is preached, the less diversity is found?
Yes and yes.
According to the Free and Independent Society of Academics Who All Have Exactly the Same Opinion on Every Conceivable Subject, you just can’t do psychology or any other science unless you’re way left of center. The society’s motto, “To think is to group-think,” pretty much sums up what “science” is all about, these days.
Just how intelligent are our intellectuals?
And are you sure you want to know the answer to that question?
So this guy says he’s a “social scientist” when he’s not, writes a paper that gets published in an amateur magazine after major revisions, his work winds up in The London Times without anyone having first checked him out, or interviewed him, and he proceeds to American TV as as bona fide “expert” who can “prove” that Christianity is bad for a society.
When I investigated this for Chalcedon years ago, I could hardly believe what I found. I mean, this guy Greg Paul was all over the airwaves, noozies bowing down to him, we’re supposed to listen to him, blah-blah-blah–and all of it, from start to finish, was pure and unalloyed poppycock.
I was much surprised by the candor of the Times reporter, Ruth Gledhill, who explained how her article came to be written without the usual procedures to ensure accuracy. Had I been her publisher, I would have fired her for writing the article and re-hired her for being honest about it.
If this is the kind of street theater horse**** that persuades you, then you deserve to be enslaved.
For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, the mighty man, and the man of war, the judge and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, the captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.” (Isaiah 3:1-4)
So God warned His people, through the prophet Isaiah; and that warning holds for us today. In fact, we have already seen it begin to unfold–children to be our princes, and babies to rule over us.
Could anything be more shameful?
We were treated to a preview of this yesterday, the Youth Climate Strike–lots and lots of hysterical teens all over the world, mindlessly parroting the gloom-and-doom end-o’-the-world mantras pounded into their heads by their… er, “teachers.” Yeah, let’s have our public policies dictated to us by 13-year-olds!
Meanwhile, Democrat dunderhead Jerry Nadler took a few minutes off from his impeachment circus to predict that Climate Change will reduce life on earth “to bacteria and maybe a few plants.”
Being ruled by children is bad enough. Do we have to be ruled by ignorant morons, too?
Just for the record:
There is no Man-Made Climate Change.
The world stopped getting “warmer” some twenty years ago.
There is always some “climate change” that is produced by vast natural forces, such as continental drift and solar activity. There is absolutely nothing that any government, no matter what extravagant powers it is given to interfere with people’s lives, can do about it.
The whole Global Warming/Climate action movement is nothing but a power grab by the Far Left Crazy–their ticket, they think, to setting up a world government with themselves lording it over all of us.
If he’s so convinced the sea levels are going to rise, why did that communist twerp Obama buy a multimillion-dollar palace on Martha’s vineyard, within a softball throw of the tide line?
But the Children tell us we’ve got to Take Action Before There Is No Future For The Planet.
And all because we didn’t pay a carbon tax! We’re doomed!
Among the more sickening aspects of our age is the way lying liberals and their Climate Change Doomsday-preaching has preyed on young minds rendered defenseless by what we laughingly call our education system.
Not surprisingly, “major depression has increased 52 percent from 2005 to 2017” among young people–but not among older adults, who have already heard so many tall tales about The End Of The World that they just tune them out.
Gee, thanks, Climate Cult! Thanks, teachers and professors and noozies! Thank you so much, Democrats! First you dumb them down in school and college, and then you bum them out with all your scare tactics–all for the sole purpose of sucking up our hard-earned money and acquiring more arbitrary political power over defenseless people’s lives. That’s your noble cause! I’d say you really ought to be ashamed of yourselves, but I don’t think leftids can feel shame.
Kids, wake up. They’re lying to you. They want you dumb and they want you glum. They’re doing you, but good.
Too many people have been brought up to regard “science” as infallible. For some reason, fully accepting the teachings of the Bible, and believing whole-heartedly in its message, raises eyebrows; but unquestioning faith in “science” doesn’t.
Except that today’s “settled science” is tomorrow’s quaint superstition.
Here in the Northeast, noozies and municipal officials are still freaking out about the four or five inches of snow–hardly reminiscent of the Donner Party, is it?–that hit last week, after the forecasters predicted “a light dusting.”
But they continue to cling to Imaginary Man-Made Climbit Change as their ticket to rule the world.
Three years ago, Congress caught NOAA personnel fudging figures to “prove” Global Warming, and NOAA refused to turn over data subpoenaed by a Congressional committee.
Here in New Jersey, adjacent to New York, we are freezing our keesters off. Oh, I know, the bitter cold is caused by Global Warming, by Climbit Change Denial, and Trans-phobia. And it will all go away if we give the government more power over our lives.
No, this is not a Joe Collidge gag. A biology professor at San Jose State–her defense of her inane statements is “I am an expert” (and you ain’t!)–has declared that “chromosomes don’t determine sex” and “high school biology” was wrong for teaching that they do (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10309).
She erupted in response to a tweet made by a Texas state legislator, who posted pictures of the XX (female) and XY (male) chromosomes “to remind people how many sexes there are.”
He did this, charged the academic gasbag, “for a bigoted purpose.”
She declines to answer her critics because she’s a Big Scientist and they’re not. Anyhow, “‘Gender’ is described as the psychological and/or the emotional identity,” yadda-yadda.
Hey! Is “science” even science anymore? It behaves more like it’s just window-dressing for assorted leftid ideologies.
The prof adds that “intersex and ambiguously sexed individuals” constitute 1% of the population. One out of every hundred people you know. Really? What if you don’t spend all your time on a collidge campus, where such persons are likely to congregate? Is she talking about the real world, or her world?
America has too many colleges, too many professors, and way too many college students “learning” pure crapola from overpaid idiots. De-fund the universities now. Before it’s too late.
