Most Unbelievable Science Scams of the Twenty-First Century

When I had entered MIT to study science and engineering in the 1970s as any excited kid in a candy story, little did I understand that like political science and religion, science and pseudo science also interplay in the service of empire. The following is my contribution to speaking up following in the footsteps of the first patron saint of modern science to have demonstrated the courage of his convictions at the risk of the gallows, Galileo. Just look through the telescope, he hath pleaded before the church of his time, countering their divine authority with uncommon boldness: “In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual”. Except that today it is the church of science that has taken over from the Church of Christendom. The risks today are also substantially the same. Only the labels might be different. Among the tens of thousands of scientists and engineers worldwide, there are evidently too few Galileos alive to make any impact on the new Church of Science that has taken hold in the twenty-first century. This church has introduced new religions, the two most unbelievable ones are tackled below.

The New York Times reported on Nov. 3, 2017: “Directly contradicting much of the Trump administration’s position on climate change, 13 federal agencies unveiled an exhaustive scientific report on Friday that says humans are the dominant cause of the global temperature rise that has created the warmest period in the history of civilization. ... The report was approved for release by the White House, but the findings come as the Trump administration is defending its climate change policies.”
So, is there, or isn't there, man-made Global Warming? American President Donald Trump's position on virtually every matter including global warming is usually one of strawman --- for the American and international establishment's actual policies are rarely if ever crafted in the White House itself. The fact of the matter is that all establishments and their scientists worldwide tote a common party-line: they religiously claim that Global-Warming / Climate Change is man-made. Their staunchest detractors also religiously claim that there isn't any global warming at all, but are then hard pressed to explain the drastic changes in weather seen occurring worldwide which is now presented by the establishment party-line not as Global Warming as it was a decade ago, but as planetary level Climate Change. Some other detractors suggest that Climate Change may be real, but that it is principally not due to man's activity; that, planetary level climate change is predominantly a natural cyclic phenomenon based on the sun's activity, and therefore it is likely solar system wide phenomenon. While still others, only a handful, perhaps more in tune with the political vagaries of Machiavellian statecraft and the making of the public mind with Hegelian Dialectic imposed political choices, suggest that the alarmist attitude is to Machiavellianly fashion a boogieman as the problem pretext, in order to usher in Carbon Credit as the solution. They believe that the real agenda behind these pseudo science laced political shenanigans is to curtail humanity's unbridled growth and population explosion --- the long running real agenda of the oligarchy driving nation-states towards one-world government. This group of detractors fear that the ultimate political agenda of the world government exponents is dystopic eugenics, selective mass population reduction, and the enactment of global laws for controlled breeding, wherein, birthing is transformed from the natural right of the human species to a law-sanctioned privilege as has been witnessed in Communist China! This latter rather well-read intelligent lot, who understandably so fear dystopia that they see its seeds planted in virtually every global policy that is signed off by the so called representative governments which silently erode national sovereignty in baby-steps, are generally dismissed by the establishment as “conspiracy theorist”, kooks and nut-jobs. To assist in that labeling and marginalization, a great deal of “beneficial cognitive diversity” is also cunningly introduced into the mix of public opinion which pitches outlandish theories. All this creates massive confusion in the public mind. Whom to believe? What to believe? Is science really divorced from political science? Is pseudo science being used to globally push an elitist agenda down mankind's throat? What a Hegelian Mind-fck!
And thus, the public mind now thoroughly confused by the plethora of “expert” opinions, naturally gravitates towards officially sanctioned authority figures to tell them what is true and what isn't --- and in this way their new political beliefs are cast, or old ones reinforced, and their behavior molded. That officialdom's authority figures have, in this November 2017, released its official bible of sacred truths for the global public at large – for whatever is true for the United States of America with respect to climate change, is obviously also true for the rest of the world as well. The new sacred truths are part of the new religion being fashioned worldwide, that it is humanity that is causing Global Warming / Climate Change, and that the planet must be saved from humanity in order for the planet to be saved for humanity!
This report dismantles that sacred truth as being nothing more than a noble lie – like the WMDs in Iraq which facilitated its invasion by the United States of America. Once a fait accompli, no power can undo it. No “oops” and “intelligence failure” can put the fired bullet back into the gun. Precisely because of its irreversibility that the public must oppose this sacred truth which makes mankind out as a virus infecting the earth.

There are mainly two global schools of thought today on what transpired on September 11, 2001. The first says evil Muslims under the leadership of Osama Bin Laden and an organization called Al-Qaeda, principally carried out that catastrophic terror act on American soil. Minor variations salt that narrative spanning the gamut of plausible sounding arguments from anticipated blowback of iniquitous global policies of the superpower to conspiratorial covert blessings and/or active collusion of the Western intelligence apparatuses, including that of the United States, Israel, Pakistan and others. The majority of the world's officialdoms, and the public mind, have accepted the unsalted version. Today that narrative advanced by the superpower and its surrogates underwrites history books, law books, policy prescriptions, fine literature, and even melodrama as an accepted historical fact. The salted variations mainly sell books. The second school of thought says that the entire first narrative can be nothing but a Big Lie and all its salted versions deliberate red herrings which principally serve to sanctify the Big Lie. This article underwrites the latter argument by advancing the logic method known as reductio ad absurdum on empirical evidence. It is a rational method used in court systems worldwide which any ordinary man and woman of sound mind capable of serving for jury duty can employ on their own to separate fact from fiction. No judge dare reject this forensic technique unless he is running a kangaroo court --- which is perhaps why no legal mind has to date dared to bring this most straightforward argument before the International Criminal Court System in the Hague despite all their vocal dissent as the brilliant consciences of the world. It is the one sure-fire proof of the Big Lie that can immediately lead to sleeping with the fishes for anyone presenting it with any effective measure of legal visibility. That crucial omission is the veritable indicator of the self-serving moral corruption of the finest intellectual minds today, or when innocent of that charge, perhaps their complete indoctrination. The global impact of this co-option is that the Big Lie of the twenty-first century is rapidly getting sanctified as “whole truth” with no moral giants (or even midgets) effectively standing in its way.
