The New Scientifc Method
If you look at most science these days you will find that it is almost entirely funded and controlled by the government -- the same way religion was controlled by the government in the past. Science is the new religion because it is the current religion pushed by the state.
The goal of the government is to control people. It isn't to protect people, it isn't to make our lives better, it isn't to do any of the BS they feed the . The goal of the government is to grow in size and further control the people. And in order to do this they need some type of way to control the minds of people. And the best way to control people is through fear.
"...it's not scientific to base something on what "scientists" believe"
In the past governments would tell people they would go to Hell if they didn't follow orders. Religion and governments would work very closely and they ruled the ignorant people through fear of Hell and punishment of not following orders.
Today we have a similar thing going on except rather than Hell as the control mechanism we have scientific fears like global warming. We are told that if we don't let the state do something about these scientific problems then we could face mass extinction.
So science is not scientific because the government controls it. We don't actually practice science anymore. We're not scientific. When something is scientific it isn't because they actually followed the scientific method, it is because a consensus of "scientists" all agreed on something. Sounds like religion to me.
Statements like "97% of scientists agree on global warming" are not scientific. For one, 97% of scientists do not agree on global warming. But even more importantly, it's not scientific to base something on what "scientists" believe. That's called religion.
In science you give the data, show the models used, show the results, and take in objective data and results from all forms of experimentation and scientists. In science you -- get this -- follow the scientific method. But of course we don't do that any more. We follow the religious method.
"State scientists are not scientists -- they're salespeople for their master: the state"
The Earth is rising in temperature and all the glaciers are going to melt and we're all going to be covered in water! Oh, planets outside of Earth are also experiencing global warming and it's all based around the sun? We have negligible global warming? Then the climate is changing and that's bad! Oh, humans want the climate to change so it can be more inhabitable? But nuclear energy is dangerous! Watch out! Overpopulation is a problem! We need science to fix this. There's not enough food and water for people! Science tells us that you're all bad and you're all killing the planet! We need science to fix all the ails. But not the kind of science that researches. The kind of science that feeds a religious doctrine to the .
Let me put it very bluntly for you. State scientists are not scientists -- they're salespeople for their master: the state. State funded scientists don't have scientific research as their primary objective. State scientists don't do experiments, gather the data and then base their conclusions off the data. That would be far too scientific. Instead, state scientists (read: 99% of scientists) let the government tell them what their conclusions should be and then go and seek out data to support the governments conclusion.
The whole thing is an obvious unscientific mess but of course the absolutely love it and don't have any idea what is going on. So the next time you hear somebody tell you that something is scientific tell them that you stopped believing in religion a long time ago. Because as long as we have the government funding BS scientific research, and until we have a true separation of science and state, religion is all "science" really is.
