Response to M'kele Mbembe, Part II
Or how 'bout the human footprint found next to the therapod print? NO! I'm not talking about the track in Texas that turned out to be a therapod
following some brachiosaurs. I'm talking about the human footprint found following some large, dangerous meat-eater, like a Utah Raptor. How were
they so sure it was human? Because they could see the lacing around the moccasin print. It's buried in some museum somewhere, and its existence is
denied. As is the iron bell found by coal miners -- in a vein of coal supposedly "300 million" years old. Oh, we could go on, couldn't we?
But why bother? We're dismissed as ignorant, stupid, fools and worse. They've got the big guns: all the universities, museums, "scientists", and
media have the general populace in their thrall. They say, "Such and such is 300 million years old", and no one even THINKS to ask, "How do you
know how old it is?" Everyone assumes they must know, it must be true. It's what, in medieval times, was referred to as "auctoritee": knowledge
handed down by authority, never to be questioned. And we think we've come so far! Instead of the tyranny of the Church, we have the tyranny of
Science. Geez -- what an improvement.
Know how they know how old a fossil is? From the age of the rocks it's found in. Know how they know the age of those same rocks? From the age of the
fossils they find in them.
See a problem here? Really?! You must be an idiot -- THEY don't see any problem, and THEY know everything. After all, they're SCIENTISTS.
My husband is a Math Ph.D. He tells me that there are people who ARE scientists, and there are people who merely DO science, sort of, but they AREN'T
scientists, not really. Dawkins fits that bill, for example. He DOES science -- that is, he has an agenda, to which science is subservient. Science
goes wherever HE leads. But Einstein, Galileo, Newton -- THEY were scientists. They went wherever She led. These people, to whom we all make such
humble obescience, wouldn't know real science if it bit them in the aft end. So, how is the layman to know what to believe? He can't -- and that's
what they count on, my friends.
It's time to add a new word to our vocabulary: scientism. As in, "Evolution isn't science, it's scientism." Just another ism, like Protestantism,
Catholicism, or Atheism. It too has an agenda, and requires just as much faith. But since they cloak it in the mantle of "science", we mere fools
down here dare not question it. IT'S SCIENCE! It must be true! Do not look at the man behind the curtain . . .
And remember, if you do dare question anything, you'll be dismissed as a complete idiot, unworthy of the merest response! They've sold us The Big
Lie -- say something long enough, loud enough, monopolize all discussion, and everyone will eventually believe it, whether it's true or not. That's
all Big Brother needs.
It doesn't matter how many little people like us cry, "The emperor has no clothes!" The Big Lie has the big guns, and it has won. We're dismissed
as illiterate cranks and fools, who know nothing of "science" as they define it (what we now call scientism). They have no idea what to make of
people like my spouse, who has a doctorate in Mathematics -- so they ignore him, and pretend he, and people like him, don't exist . . .
Haven't you noticed how they say only fools believe in Christ (or God, or Allah)? Only idiots believe in a creator? Only morons think strange things,
like M'kele, exist? Only r-tards think that there are other dimensions (even though quantum mechanics is coming to that conclusion), that the
Those things are not SCIENTIFIC! Ah, yes, SCIENCE. Wisdom begins and ends with you.
