The Weaponization of “Science”

05/22/201747 Comments

“Science” is being turned into a political weapon. Not the scientific method, but the reified “science” of scientism, exemplified by the politically-motivated March For Science, the politically-biased peer review process, the politically-charged infotainment from political hacks like Bill Nye, and the politically-appointed scientific regulators who always put their corporate interests and political worldview ahead of scientific accuracy.

    How we see ourselves determines a great deal about how we experience reality and how we communicate about that experience.

    Seeing Science as a “religion” has legitimacy precisely because money, power and ethics play a huge role in everything that human beings do. As much as scientists want to bristle over the idea of a “Philosophy of Science,” it is precisely this topic that opens Science up to a discussion about comparing and contrasting the nature and themes of the human experience of Science versus its alleged archenemy, “religion.”

    Without a thorough understanding and grounding in what it means to be a human being using the scientific method to explore one’s experience of the world, the scientist stays completely entrapped in the subjective experience of an era. Imagine how Galileo might have been treated and how his life might have radically changed if the entire world had been educated to understand and appreciate the differences between subjective experiences of reality based on the precision of human perception?

    It can be quite a challenge to remain grounded in, and aware of, one’s own personal perceptions and the context in which they operate, while reading and absorbing the drivel that passes for a precise description of a scientific study, let alone a baker’s dozen of the same from a variety of different scientists. And yet it is exactly this head-space all of Science must occupy if we are to take seriously anything Thomas Kuhn had to say about the nature of scientific revolutions and scientific discovery. This is especially true in the social sciences where academics think nothing of “gaming” the system of science with the invention of novel rhetoric to describe their warmed-over ideas about human experience. But that is not to say that there are not times when novel rhetoric, or modes of expression, do not have a useful place in Science: the difference between polar coordinates versus linear coordinates, for example, mean the difference between finding one’s place on the globe and freezing to death in one of its poles. The study of the differences between the rhetoric of Antonio Gramsci’s notebooks versus the rhetoric of the New York Times of the same era could reveal a host of additional topics that, if the world actually used Science constructively and in the manner intended, would shatter conventional understanding of what it means to be a human being in the world.

    The shattering of worldviews is precisely why Science is processed by the human mind in the same manner as a religion with its proprieties, improprieties and its canonical and non-canonical modes of thinking about specific topics. This is now and has always been the “normal” situation of human experience, an experience that has been, and apparently remains, a totally under-appreciated and eminently-exploitable misunderstanding of how human beings process their “reality.”

    In 2006-2007 while at Texas A & M, I had to write a short Biology Class paper on any plant. I chose Stevia. I went all out…and because the paper “was too long”, I got a B- and was publicly denigrated by the teacher in our class of 60+ students.

    Later, I did a touche’ by telling her in front of the class that my paper was published on the internet. Then, I made copied stapled stacks of the paper, along with live Stevia potted plants, made a “FREE – Take One” and distributed these displays around the different floors of the Science building. They were popular.

    The paper revealed the truth about Aspartame, Donald Rumsfeld, and the FDA burning Stevia cookbooks in Arlington, TX., etc.
    It showed with photo documentation how aspartame killed FIRE ANTS. If you know about Fire Ants, you know how hard it is to get rid of those mad dogs.

    Here is that paper… (check out the Fire Ants pics)
    The Sweet Stevia Conspiracy
    http://www.mpwhi.com/stevia.pdf

    Since I was in classes with PreMed students, one fellow was in a quandary on what to do for a research study experiment. I told him about aspartame. He was skeptical, but used it with frogs. Later he told me that the size of the heart of the “aspartame frogs” was almost double of normal frogs…it was inflamed.

            I have a Stevia plant growing in my garden now.
            I have a real problem with all the rabbits; the litters keep multiplying. …and they don’t eat the Stevia. Hhmm… Maybe spike some sunflower seed rabbit food with stevia. (grin)

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

            I did some further research.
            As noted in the video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Y_ubswux58 ) this textbook was written in 1970 by Paul and Anne Ehrlich.
            Timely was a 1968 study at Purdue in association with a University in Paraguay by Professor Joseph Kuc in which they gave rats very, very high doses of Stevia (and perhaps it was exclusively included in all their water). The results showed a decrease in fertility. Evidently many could not replicate the results, but a couple might had.
            A 1968 study makes sense that it would be included in the book.

            My take away on all of this…
            Many foods and herbs should best be consumed in balanced moderation.
            Throughout history, there have been common herbs used for birth control methods. Some of these folk remedies for birth control may omit “censorable” written information such as “inserting the concoction into a private body cavity”. Also, many plants mimic hormones. (e.g. celery or pine pollen for androgen qualities, or soy for estrogen qualities, or bananas for melatonin qualities.)

            I do not trust the corporate Stevia concentrates/products because they may contain solvents or altered aspects of the plant.

            I almost died from being poisoned by solvents when working in an Environmental Testing Lab (testing for contaminants). Breathing the solvents started to literally dissolve the fats/oils within my body. Gross, incredible phenomena followed. I literally could not remember what had transpired earlier in the day. Thank goodness a Natural Doctor guided me immediately to mega-doses of NAC and other supplements.

      Just read the paper you linked. I’m guessing it was ridiculed for reasons other than the length, but his naivete. JimBob who notes that people can’t figure out that crooked politicians just might lie to them about every dang thing they do.

  4. Moxa4 says:

    Thanks, James. I needed many years to see the politicization of science. Science! Have I really practiced a kind of religion all these years? So many things have changed for me since 9.11! The understanding of what drives a big part of scientists, has shifted tremendously since that event.

  5. mackeene says:

    It is promoted because it is part of UN agenda. They are going to use it to promote gmos, vaccines, climate change, etc. Haven’t you noticed more MSM attacks on religion lately? Communism also attacked religion too. See where this is going?

    Science and 9/11 Truth at the University

    When at Texas A & M from 2006-2008, I burned and distributed about 10,000 DVDs, many of those on campus. EVERY Professor on campus and (most assistants) got a nice 9/11 DVD packet. My book bag had a sign “Ask me for free 9/11 DVDs”. I always carried DVDs and handouts. A tremendous number of students and public found out about 9/11 through these efforts.

    One time there was a “Science Contest” sponsored by a top Biology Professor. Students would be given 30 minutes to a make a presentation about any topic in science. “Judges” were composed of Graduate students and Professors. The presentation would be judged in the realm of “valid scientific method” and “non-valid”.
    After the Biology Professor found out my presentation was to be on 9/11, he changed the presentation time down to 10 minutes.

    Despite this, I pulled off a sweet presentation about Building 7. I showed various video clips and also had a “model of a building”. After dropping an object and pointing to the model, I asked a rhetorical question, “What could make a building fall in free fall?, a student in the audience yells out “EXPLOSIVES!”.
    The Biology Professor got red in the ears. He stepped out of protocol and started interrupting my presentation. Finally, I slammed my hand on the podium and assertively said to him: “If you will stop interrupting me, I will show you the evidence!!”
    All the judges ruled in favor of my presentation.

    There are hundreds of anecdotes of my interactions with people about 9/11. An interesting aspect is that Professors kept ‘mum’ on the topic. They wouldn’t go there. However, my Physics Professor and some others would give me “that knowing look” that they were aware.
    …But, the Agriculture Dept. Professors were all on board with me about this Global Warming Hoax / Manmade Climate Change. They knew it was a bunch of malarkey. Since they were “limited by their ties to the University”, they sometimes would prod me to talk about it.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Above, I mention the Agriculture Professors and Climate Change when I was an “Aggie”.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      One time at A&M, the visiting department Head of Chemistry for Texas Tech came to give a talk on his research about perchlorates and permanganates. I went.
      Perchlorates and permanganates are used by the military as explosives and rocket fuel, along with many other industrial aspects. They are a major environmental issue. Toxic.
      However, soils and subsoil minerals can naturally contain perchlorates and permanganates.

      Thyroid problems from plants (including organic) and milk due to irrigation.
      The Professor pointed out that because many farms and ranches use deep well water irrigation methods, that the top soil was building up with large deposits of perchlorates and permanganates. This toxin was going up the food chain. And it was causing thyroid problems.
      He strongly advocated that people take Iodine supplements to offset the damage.
      http://today.ttu.edu/posts/2005/03/texas-tech-chemistry-professor-to-brief-congressional-members-and-staff-on-perchlorate-issues

      He published the scientific research. The EWG (Environmental Working Group) also published his research. http://www.ewg.org/search/site/perchlorates

      He smiled wide when I asked him: “Did you catch hell from the Texas Tech Administration after you published your work?”
      He sure did. All kinds of pressure. Texas Tech gets lots of monetary support from the military side of things.

          A couple college 9/11 anecdotes
          As I was hanging this “9/11 Was An Inside Job” banner ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpH453BTUJk&feature=youtu.be&t=3m46s ) in front of my apartment which blatantly faced the University campus, a young ‘cowboy’ comes spinning gravel with his pickup into the parking lot. I thought to myself: “Oh no! This guy is all upset that I am unpatriotic.” Boy, was I wrong. He comes scurrying out of his pickup and yells at me, “Hey! How can I find out about this?!!”. So, of course I loaded him up with DVDs and literature.

          The banner caused quite a stir.
          Construction guys would pass my apartment on their way to weld and build a new large campus building. One morning as we walked on the same path, me towards my classes and they towards work, they started to rib me about the banner. They were highly skeptical and poked fun at me for my conspiracy theory. I joked with them. We had some good laughs. I gave them all (about 6 or 8 guys) DVDs and literature. I made a bet with them that they had more sense than most of the Professors on campus.

          A few mornings later when our paths crossed, they were all saying “You are goddamn right! Those buildings were blown up!” And they proceeded to tell me all about what the DVDs exposed. They asked for more DVDs to give to their friends.

          The reverberations of passing out DVDs was cool to see in later years. A lady in one of my classes asked for DVDs to give to her brother. Years later he headed our group.

          Vaccines
          I was lucky. In 2005, my college instructor for a government course was the man featured in this 2001 ABC News investigation on mercury in vaccines. He started a class action suit against the Pharma companies. Great guy and we still stay in touch. He knew about 9/11 before I did.

            Hola aloha HRS,

            Last year I watched this documentary about mercury based vaccines and autism. Download it fast, because I suspect that youtube will delete it soon…

            Trace Amounts: Ethyl Mercury | Educational Documentary

            During the past 20 years, the frequency of autism occurring in children has skyrocketed from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 68, and the scientific community is no closer to determining a cause. Trace Amounts is the true story of Eric Gladen’s painful journey through mercury poisoning that he believes resulted from a thimerosal-loaded tetanus shot. His discoveries led him on a quest for the scientific truth about the role of mercury poisoning in the Autism epidemic.

            After recovering from a sickness that would bring him to the edge of despair, Eric Gladen began researching the science behind what had made him so sick. His research led him straight into one of the biggest medical debates of all time, the question of whether or not childhood vaccines are causing Autism. He would end up quitting his career, moving into an RV, and traveling the country interviewing experts and piecing together thousands of studies and leaked documents. But Eric wasn’t focused on the vaccines themselves, he was focused on something that belongs nowhere near vaccines — mercury.

            From the Mad Hatter Syndrome in the late 1800’s, to Pink Disease in the first half of the 20th to the Iraqi Grain Incident in the early 1970’s, humans have learned time and again of the debilitating neurological and physical damage that mercury can cause. Then why and how did it end up in our childhood vaccines? Trace Amounts explores the origin of the use of mercury in the vaccines and exposes the continued greed based decision to keep mercury in the vaccines through several decades. Trace Amounts is the result of nearly a decade of research and travel, in which top scientists, government officials, parents of children with Autism, and the average Joe unravel the truths, secrets, and tragedies, of the skyrocketing Autism rates.

            Could a tragedy, which brought one of the greatest nations to its knees, and stole a generation of children, have been avoided?

              Hola Howdy Kon’nichiwa PdB, the man with no country and all countries,

              I hear ya on the Mercury and Vaccines. Been on the front lines of that fight. http://www.dogsagainstfluoridation.com/vaxxed-movie
              (I do the website and help with events.)

              While in college, I had some animated debates with Professors and with fellow classmates about vaccines, and the mercury contained within. Some of these Professors got pretty heated in their advocating of vaccines.

              It is ironic. They just could not confront the Chemistry regarding Mercury. While my Organic Chemistry Professor had no dog in the fight, he definitely ascertained that Mercury is one of the most toxic metals. He told me a story: Back in the older days during the traveling carnivals, they would have a slide and a pool of Mercury at the bottom. People would pay to slide into the pool and splash the beads of metal all about.

              As a kid, I would break open a thermometer and play around with the beads of mercury in my hands and all around the floor. The beads are fun to play with.
              By the 6th Grade, I remember on the back porch telling my brother that “I feel like I’m going crazy.” By the 7th Grade, I developed a skin condition on my hands, where the skin would peel away like athlete’s foot.
              I never connected these phenomena to the toxicity of Mercury until many years later.
              Fortunately, the body tries to heal itself and clean itself out. Maybe all the High School beer helped.

              Now-a-days, if a mercury thermometer is broken in a school, they call the Hazmat Suit guys and evacuate the area.

              Ha!… Heck! In 1968, I was melting lead weights to make “Peace Signs” to wear around the neck. Breathing lead fumes and touching it on the body. Of course, we had leaded gasoline back then too at around 29 to 49 cents a gallon.

              I think the food was cleaner back in those days and helped one detoxify.

                And that is the same message as Joachim Hagopian mentioned in his article @ Globalresearch, which I linked in my other comment:

                Other soft kill methods range from toxic levels of fluoride diabolically mixed in to our municipal water supply as well as a standard ingredient in most toothpaste products. It’s illegal to dump fluoride into lakes and rivers but apparently okay to dump it in most municipal water treatment systems in America. Even a chloramine ammonia mixture used to disinfect water is showing up now in our public tap water. These known poisons have been demonstrated to cause increased levels of autism, dementia and brain damage as well as cancer and cardiovascular disease. But then they’re all simply part of the elitists’ dumbing down/eugenics plan.

                Geoengineering is also a scientific kill method of the kakistocracy. But today we were lucky in Amsterdam, because the color of the sky is azure blue today and that is a natural and wonderful view, which is very rare nowadays, because the powers that shouldn’t be are spraying heavy toxic metals for decades on us. These chemrains (chemtrails) contain aluminum, barium, strontium, mercury among other toxic ingredients as part of their eugenic methods…

    I’m in the middle of a book called Imbeciles: The Supreme Court, American Eugenics, and the Sterilization of Carrie Buck by Adam Cohen, that chronicles, in excruciating and disturbing detail, the beginnings and development of the American eugenics movement. It offers a meticulous case study in how all our society’s institutions including the medical community, the media, as well as our government and legal institutions all the way up to the Supreme Court, can be led to endorse a such a self-evidently irrational, racist and elitist pseudo-scientific concept. It should be a cautionary tale for today’s culture.

    Last year I read this book and I can recommend everybody to read this book:

    ‘Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare’ by Peter Gøtzsche

    ‘Drug reps are advised to work with key opinion leaders and turn them into ‘product champions’, and also to find younger people who can have their profile raised so that they also become key opinion leaders. A bit like Hitler-Jugend, so they can go out and terrorize common sense among those who are not yet members of the Party.’ (pg 82)

    ‘the results generated huge ‘controversy’, with innumerable letters and papers written by seemingly independent whore doctors who were hired guns for the company.’ (pg 100)

  10. ““Science” is being turned into a political weapon.” This happened long ago.

    Thanks for this episode! I recently commented something on this. Scientism is a dogma like religion and patriotism and it can be terribly corrupted in it’s process like anything else.

    The “March For Science” should be the “March For Transparency” and the open (and open-source) free flow of information, ideas, and analysis, so that knowledge from science is not a horded power controlled by exploitative gatekeepers. Everything from government systems to climate change to big pharma to Silicon Valley hides behind their occulted proprietary knowledge.

    Aaron Schwartz tried to liberate knowledge.

    I’d like to see a “March Against Dogmas”.

      Ive always just called it Corpro-Science. It is really the same thing Shamans practiced before the church even existed and if you disagree not good for you. It is hard to believe so many people still believe that corporations and governments are only after our best interests. Even old people still say they would never do that now days. Yes cigaretts were bad and we were mislead but peticides are safe. Yes pestices are bad but artificial sweetners are safe. Yes artificial sweetners are bad but GM food is safe. The same people they just want to be misled. Why would the CIA hurt our citizens they would never do that. Oh that was back then they would never do that now.

    I cut the cord to my TV many years ago and never heard of this guy Bill Nye. Back when I did watch the tube there was a guy called “Mr. Wizard” on with a science show. He was good and not political as I could notice.
    To bad things changed so much!

    Speaking of “science”, curious how many here believe man landed and walked on the moon?

    Just a thought, what if “gravity” doesn’t work the way they thought us in school, what if gravity is created electromagnetically.

    • matagordagreg says:

      Never have believed that lie.

      In the 3rd Grade I had to do a report on the moon. We had a very old set of Encyclopedias. I remember that the encyclopedia said the moon’s surface might be like cotton, all cushy.

    • PeaceFroggs says:

      I think the landings were faked, not because we didn’t go necessarily, maybe we did land and walked on the moon, however the technology we used had to be camouflaged and they used the Saturn Rockets and Television (Stanley Kubrick) as a way to fool people.

      Looking back on it some 50 years later in retrospect it’s impossible to send men to the moon via Rockets with 1960’s technology, it’s a farce, but what if gravity is electromagnetic and we don’t need “rockets” to escape the earth’s “gravity”, what if the technology is electromagnetic, it would help explain the silent UFO with strange lights that people see from time to time.

      Just a thought.
