What was the silliest, least scientific 'pandemic' policy?


Tons of good answers.

The U.S. government is engaged in genocide.

Most academics are required to raise a large portion of their salary through government and corporate “grants”.

Any academic who questions the genocide will not be funded by the government or corporate sector.

Therefore no academics question the genocide — and if they do they’ll be fired.

That’s how the academic world arrives at consensus these days.

The wholesale assault on science, by many on the political left, over the last several years, is astonishing. They seem to believe that:

• mercury and aluminum are magically transmogrified from known neurotoxins into beneficial vitamins when injected into children;

• biological sex is socially constructed and chromosomes are a vast right wing conspiracy theory; and that

• genetically modified mRNA shots, that have never worked in humans, suddenly became “safe and effective” because of the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Not correct. There are plenty academics questioning the narrative, remember the Barrington declaration. The nonconformists are simply ignored, even though they are more competent and more accomplished than fauxci style idiots.

um, you guys, is anyone else maybe a teensy bit worried that if “the best way to get people to follow the science is not to explain the science” that probably it’s not really very good science?

i’m just a kitten and not a big important president of the european research council like miss maria or anything, but that sounds kinda suspect…

In the last interview of his life (1996), astronomer Carl Sagan gave an uncannily prescient warning of the dangers that arise when you cannot ask skeptical scientific questions of those in authority. Watch and ask yourself: was he right?

6-foot social distancing rule that near destroyed our daily lives, closed businesses, & was just horrendous, well, I spoke to Redfield about this at HHS, told me basically they made it up, NO science

I never faulted Redfield, to me a God fearing man, good man, we had a good work relationship but he was weak and could not handle the malfeasants undercutting Trump (or him) at CDC

Dr. Scott Gottlieb (prior FDA commissioner) went on media and said it was made up, to verify what I had said openly. It was made up.

Outstanding clip - thanks for this. Well, I guess he was right. This also means that Tyson, who constantly refers to Sagan as his mentor, has betrayed his legacy and ignored his warning. I wonder what Druyan thinks of Tyson at this stage, or was Sagan just spouting bullshit?

EDIT: If anyone is the current skeptic on PatNet, it's @richwicks. Hell, this forum was started by a housing skeptic. Sagan, Jefferson, et. al, agree that while sometimes vociferous disagreement results, that's not a reason to cancel or ignore skeptics. It is, rather, the true meaning of diversity - the Diversity of Ideas, the crucible, where truth is forged. Skeptics are trying to keep us honest.

Notice how the officers neither are keeping six feet, nor are they masked. Hard to tell from the photo, but it looks to me like they are having a good laugh at the absurdity of it all.

Tyson is no dummy, but it's famous because he's black, not because he's some genius physicist. He's an adequate physicist, but hardly a genius one.

It's our media that makes people famous and popular, none of it is ever earned. Stephen Hawking was over-rated, VASTLY, but he had done more contribution to science than Tyson. The next important physicist or scientist of some sort, is going to prove that the Big Bang theory is incorrect. I think that's inevitable at this point. It's called the "Crisis in Cosmology", and probably, very likely, the Big Bang didn't happen. We may be in an eternal universe, which is just as fucking inexplicable as the Big Bang is. Red Shift, for example, may not be due to a universal expansion. Maybe it's move red due to gravitation. Who knows? It's over my head, but I can tell you, there's a LOT of problems with the Big Bang theory. Current models are incorrect, for certain, maybe they just have to be tweaked, but maybe, they are fundamentally wrong, and that's where the evidence is increasingly pointing to.

The method of 21st century science is thus:

1. determine the premise to be proven

2. collect data

3. any data points that do not support the premise are declared outliers and removed

4. restate premise as absolute fact

5. collect payment

6. shout down anyone who questions the absolute fact as a denier and anti-science, misinformation and disinformation and take appropriate action to silence them

Harvard’s ‘Leading Scholar’ on ‘Honesty’ Caught Fabricating ‘Multiple Studies’

Harvard’s “leading scholar” on behavioral psychology has been caught fabricating “multiple studies,” including the findings in a famous major study on “honesty.”

“Reverberations” are going through the academic community after evidence emerged showing that Francesca Gino of Harvard Business School fabricated results in “multiple studies,” according to a report from the New York Times.

The report asserts that the field of behavioral science, an area of research often seen with much “skepticism” from other scientists, “may have sustained its most serious blow yet” over the revelations about Gino’s studies.

One of these was a famous study on honesty conducted in 2012.

The results of the study have “been cited hundreds of times by other scholars” since. ...
