Social Skeptics are not selling debunking of ridiculous topics like orgone energy, pyramid aliens, leprechauns and expanding Earth. What they are selling is their method of approaching the disposition of these topics. By contending that their method afforded them the basis of understanding from which to debunk these topics, they further then hope to employ that same method, before your eyes, to challenge surreptitiously a priori targeted subjects.
No, their conclusions are not necessarily wrong. The method is wrong, by which they arrived at them – AND – Indeed, it is the method itself, which they are selling.
SSkeptics are contending
if R, then Q : and if Q, given P : therefore P ≡ R
They hope that you fall for the trick of assuming that their false method is equivalent to science method (P ≡ R), justified by public displays of gladiator / arena style debunking, media domination and celebrity. This is not simply a magician’s trick, rather a sham.
noun \ˈsham\ : something that is not what it appears to be and that is meant to trick or deceive people
I would place Fair Use Act compliant thumbnails up or cite examples of famous stage magician skeptics who practice this sleight-of-hand, but their organizations scour and regularly censor my blogs of thumbnails and text without my knowledge. They are allowed to defame organizations, professionals and all manner of people, without evidence, and with significant damage to reputation and business. But no one is allowed to hold them accountable, and they have full power to censor your personal speech if they find that they do not agree with it. This has happened at least 6 times, and probably more. So it is typically a waste of time for me to post observed examples. Nor is the purpose of this blog to bash specific people, with a few very high profile celebrity exceptions – when they foist pseudoscience for the masses.
This sham they employ is designated for further application in discrediting other very valid and pluralistic arguments, including but not limited to:
- pharmaceutical and medical cost inflation and oligarchy
- health damage from furtive food modifications targeting profits
- freedom from certain information they do not like
- destruction of religions competing with Nihilism
- control of media channels
- intimidation of scientists and researchers
- promotion of educational agendas
- restriction of supplements and treatments which compete with big pharma sponsors
- elimination of certain subjects from public and scientific discourse
- promotion of specific politics, movements and parties
- promotion of hate agendas for specific gender and races
- a shift of power from public to private hands.
All enabled via the deception techniques employed, along with the rush enjoyed, by a performing magician. Only, this process is a sham, since the difference between a sham and the work of a magician is that the magician admits that his process is one of deception.
Power is intoxicating. But power derived through sleight-of-hand is exhilarating.
Official Promulgators of Pre-concluded Propaganda are Partners with Pretend Skeptics
Astrobiologist Richard B. Hoover spent more than forty six years working at NASA as a scientist who authored 33 volumes and 250 papers on astrobiology, extremophiles, diatoms, solar physics, X-ray/EUV optics and meteorites. He holds 11 U.S. patents and was 1992 NASA Inventor of the Year. Now he is an absolutely crack-pot and credential-less liar, completely unfamiliar with science and the scientific method. That is what the Associated Press and their SSkeptic Cabal partners would have the easy prey gullible market believe. Real scientists do not believe this, but a second purpose of this type of article (cited below) is to threaten real scientists with a similar punishment to what has been dealt Richard Hoover. Richard Hoover no longer cares, the Cabal cannot hurt him in the normal way, he is free to act in a line of integrity consistent with his professional conscience. This article is exemplary of an active and common method of pseudoscience in action. SSkeptics do not act on integrity or conscience, they take action based on agendas and party doctrine. A choice example of a very competent work of propaganda, cited below, was published March 7, 2011 by the Associated Press (http://www.suntimes.com/news/nation/4187965-418/scientists-skeptical-of-meteorite-alien-life-claim.html).
Richard Hoover analyzed two meteorites of recent introduction to Earth (one in the 1960’s and one in the 1860’s) and found that they had fossilized microbial life contained in them. The null hypothesis being that these acknowledged fossilized life forms simply came from earth after the 1860 and 1960 impacts. More importantly, he cited the evidence for this ancient, off Earth origin of the fossilized life, as being
1. An absence of expressive nitrogen, which all life ‘out-gasses’ (actually a form of sputtering to be more accurate) consistently for millions of years post mortem (the meteors only hit Earth very recently) up and to the point of fossilization start, and
2. An absence of 2 of the 5 DNA/RNA nucleic acids, for all life on Earth, in the electron microscopy assays, contrasting with all fossilizing/deceased life on earth expressing all 5 nucleic acids consistently because of the incumbent 1:1 chemical bond relationship bolstered by the histone re-enforced 5′ – 3′ spline. One either indicates either all 5, or none typically, not simply 3 of the nucleic series, and
3. The scientifically baseless and unprecedented idea that a fossilization process could fully execute the observed calcified substitution in just 40 or 140 years, post impact.
Why would the article below, or for that matter, commenting scientists and NASA, not address these claims at face value? This is standard Organic Chemistry and Microbiology 3033 undergraduate level science. Yawn.
Now these are evidence based claims, but ethically I cannot yet accept them because the scientific method has not yet been completed. The next step in the scientific method is to Replicate the Results/Study. The problem is, that the scientific method in this case, never will be completed. Instead, the press has taken on this threatening subject via a key partnership with the SSkeptic Cabal, both in pretense of representing the prevailing opinion of scientists and in execution of the scientific method. They have published push-propaganda hack job articles through standardized media channels to ensure that the next step in the scientific method is never undertaken. The purpose of this article below is to tender the correct answer and intimidate any scientist who dares suggest or initiate the next step in the scientific method – Warning: No one should take it upon himself, at risk of reputation, to attempt to comment or Reproduce the Study/Results.
The purpose of articles such as these is not to relate an air of scientific competency. Any reasonably well trained technician can see that this is simpleton dilettante propaganda. More importantly they understand that the real purpose involved in such articles is to demonstrate the damaging and unethical lengths to which the Cabal will and can stoop, in order to punish members who step out of line.
Notice as well that the article employs the fake version of Ockham’s Razor, Occam’s Razor and the ‘simplest explanation’ here. They even wheel out some hapless scientist tendering one-liners who has fallen for this ‘simplest explanation’ fallacy, who never encountered William of Ockham and his Theory of Knowledge in his doctrinal studies apparently (not sure how one does that, but I guess some schools will give anyone a PhD for anything).
This is typical SSkeptic pseudo-science in its partnership with mainstream media. It is dishonesty and tyranny in action. It is one of the most insidious evils which exists on this planet today, much worse than organized religions, who at least possess the integrity to admit to constituting a set of religious beliefs, and no longer promulgate mandatory beliefs, as now does the SSkeptic Cabal.
