Techmology and Scientism / Science is the Religion of the Enlightenment
« on: September 19, 2017, 04:52:10 am »
The more intelligent people are, the more likely they are to have ideas and opinions and life styles that diverge from popular norms. At least according to psychological studies.

But psychological studies also reveal that the more educated you are the more likely you are to believe your own bullshit and tunnel even deeper into your own cult of delusions and peer group fictions.

Science is in every meaningful way every bit as crippling, manipulative and debilitating as the religions it was supposed to replace.

It also relies upon immersion into dogmatic environments to indoctrinate it's subjects into believing whatever it's authority figures proclaim to be truth.

And it also relies upon a faith based adherence to the scriptures and ideas it concocts.

And it relies upon a monopoly over knowledge that only it's prized authority figures can understand.

And it speaks a language that the overwhelming majority are not fluent in.

And it chastizes as infidels and sinners anyone who won't adopt the values and fictions it promotes.

And science seeks to answer all of the same questions and address all the same needs that religions do, like the purpose of life, creation myths, what happens when we die etc.

And it flails and fails continually at a snails pace of modernization while it ever so slowly adapts to new info and readjusts itself toward the truth.....


..meanwhile being dead wrong over and over and over and over as it very slowly and begrudgingly adapts to correct it's flawed doctrines due to pressure from new information.

There are dozens of obvious similarities between science and religion and no meaningful distinctions between the two.

Which governs every thinking, intelligent and honest person to admit that science is no more than the most modern global religion.

As much a collection of myths and confirmation bias anecdotes and just plain crazy fabrications as the Jebus myth and astrology or numerology.

Is Science a superior religion or an inferior one? Time will tell. But for now science is just another cult practiced by sheeple and skilled leaders hoping to extract a sliver of power from their obedient followers/televangelist practitioners.

Techmology and Scientism / Is Global Warming scientism or just fake news?
« on: September 18, 2017, 11:16:07 pm »
let's just begin with the beginning and go from there. The roots of this whole Global Warming hoax:

http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/social/papers/paper_townsend.pdf

behold a document drafted by the UN itself in 2001 which explicitly warns that it not even be quoted without permission.

The document itself discusses options for financing the UN's global anti poverty initiatives which have been grossly underfunded because wealthy nations won't bother to contribute, despite public pledges. It basically reads like "what do we do?"


Scroll down to page 3.

The Zedillo Report.

The Zedillo Report was the product of a UN panel set up under Kofi Anon to identify options to the voluntary financing schemes that had thus far proven inadequate. And it's conclusions were that the UN's anti poverty programs could be financed either by effecting a Tobin Tax on global transactions or a carbon tax.

The Carbon Tax was the preferred option (page 4) because it was considered "politically more realistic" and because it could be justified as "making polluters pay".

NO MENTION OF GLOBAL WARMING. Efforts to commence the carbon tax are still underway in the form of the Kyoto, Doha, Paris agreements and amendments.

As the campaign to convince wealthy nations to contribute to the UN's war on poverty programs the UN ramped up the IPCC to build a scientific case for applying this tax (for poverty relief) to carbon consumers who were aggrevating alleged global warming.

The IPCC, as everybody knows is a UN body and is the primary driver of global warming study and hysteria.
