Same as the Old Inquisition
Dare to be a Daniel. Dare to stand alone. Dare to have a purpose true, and dare to make it known. Thank you Robert Malone for exposing the truth and having the courage to make it know in the face of the 1984 "controlled information" we're up against today.
We in the western world live in very sick societies at the moment. While weeding creeping bellflower (a never-ending job therefore lots of time to think!), I've pondered how on earth we turn this around. Massive protests in France don't seem to have accomplished much. However, the Anheuser Busch and Target boycotts have been quite effective! So how do we boycott government? I suggest a giant co-ordinated tax revolt, all through the western world! The globalist plot falls flat on its face if the money comes to a screeching halt. Thoughts??
The following observation by Nobel Physicist, Richard Feynman, is the perfect response to all high priests of our modern Covid Inquisition:
"I'd rather have a question that can't be answered than an answer that can't be questioned."
And in a similar context he wrote:
"Religion is a culture of belief. Science is a culture of doubt."
Those, like Robert Malone, who are flexible enough to bridge both cultures become "fine men" and splendid scientists.
Wow, this is an incredibly deep exploration on the issues that matter most. With it, you've managed to remove the last vestiges of clothing from the Emperor - clothing that I didn't even realize were still there until you pointed them out. It's been a long time since I read anything that rang so profoundly true at such a fundamental level. Thank you - I only wish this could be more widely seen and understood.
Right on! Thank you!
I am in no way defending the Inquisition, so please don't attack me on that! I'm just saying that, over *hundreds of years* of the inquisition, the death toll in total is somewhere in the single digit thousands (4000? 5000?). Which is a pretty lazy afternoon for Godless leaders like Mao or Stalin.
Reminds me of what Solzhenitsyn wrote in the Gulag Archipelago about the cruelty of the Tsar, who did imprison dissidents unjustly and did torture/kill some of them - perhaps in the dozens? hundreds? Yet the Communists pretended to care about this injustice so much that they rallied the people to overthrow the Tsar - so that, again, on a slow morning, those same Communists would imprison, torture, and murder as many people as the Tsars did in a century...
Point being, not a defense of the Tsar or the Inquisition, but beware of getting rid of the bad guy you know... chances are the new guys will be far, far more murderous than anything they pretended to protest against....
As for science vs religion, I will be writing about this later this week and showing how the modern scientific revolution was based on the Bible and depended on it -- and that today, aggressively secular scientists are standing on a branch sawing themselves off from the very tree they're dependent on!
Thank you as always for the wise, wise words.
The only way 'scientism' can thrive is with government backing. Just another monopoly. In this case, a 'thought' monopoly. When you introduce government power into science, you get ... no science. When you introduce government power into the economy, you get ... no economy. When you introduce government power into 'health' you get ... no health. When you introduce government power into the road systems you get ... potholes. Do you see a pattern here? I think we need to go back and answer the fundamental question, 'What is the purpose of government in a free society?' Answer that question correctly and we'll be OK. Answer it wrong - which we've been doing for many years - and we're doomed.
The university system is the new priesthood, and white lab coats are the new vestments.
First Principles are a prerequisite for thought, however those of Divine origin are censored.
We were given a wake-up call in 1978 when Solzenhitzen's address at Harvard was received with boos and catcalls. "Orthodoxy!", they shouted. Now they are the purveyors of orthodoxy and the silence is deafening. Ditto the ACLU and free speech on campus. Shame. Shame. Shame.
I have always thought science was in trouble when the term "social sciences" was coined. Gone downhill since
I like your scientism argument and it is true, but it is only part of what is occurring. Since the 1930s the communist party has been infiltrating the Catholic Church. They realized the communist religion could not have a competing teacher of faith and morals. So, path of destruction has been having success. They could not come out publicly and say they are Marxist communist So, they had to reinvent their strategy. Now turn to your scientism add environmentalism and you have the new religions of the globalists. The globalists are in reality the Marxist Communist under a different name. They want equity in all things, which means a select group of powerful people will run the world and enslave the populace. Under the Biden administration the Communist Democrats have been emboldened and come out against everything that our country stands for with the sole purpose of destroying it. This government no longer wants to be of the people, but above the people. This is also happening in Europe. The funny thing is that if they succeed the lunatic left will be the first behind bars. We must not submit in any way shape or form, and we must continue to fight those powers that are intent on destroying our country and way of life.
Robert Malone's comments and observations on scientism are certainly correct and on point. However, Robert Malone does not go far enough. It is not just that the precepts of scientism are unproven by the scientific method, but the scientific method has disproven basic positions and arguments of materialism.
Wilder Penfield, a renowned neurosurgeon who conducted his medical and scientific career on the theory that the material brain can explain all human behavior, at the end of his life wrote the book: "The Mystery of the MInd." Penfield could be said to have the most experience poking around in brains since he had a long career as a neurosurgeon treating patients with epilepsy with surgery before anti-seizure drugs were developed that made it unethically risky to treat most epilepsies with surgery.
As far back as Werner Heisenberg, the Copenhagen interpretation of Quantum mechanics shows that the laws of nature could not be formulated without reference to an observer. Albert Einstein did not like this, and for years Einstein tried to poke holes in the Copenhagen interpretation, by Bohr, Heisenberg, and others answered all of Einstein's objections, year after year.
George Stanciu summarizes the failures of scientism in his book: The Great Transformation. https://www.amazon.com/Great-Transformation-Contemporary-Harmonizes-Spiritual/dp/B09GJFZ6QL
Chapter 2 is Dumb Idea #1 Determinism "The great hope of modern science to prove through the experimental method that matter is the ultimate source of everything terminated in nonsense."
Chapter 4 Dumb Idea #2 Reductionism "Reductionism, then, rests on the assumption that the part is completely separable from the whole and understandable in and of itself, which is clearly false for living organisms."
Chapter 9 Dumb Idea #3 Materialism. "In conclusions, we must point out that materialism is a metaphysical belief - a cultural myth, a sort of intellectual creed - added on to science, its death does not alter any scientifically established results: Atoms still exist; the Earth is still 4.5 billion years old; and the universe still began with a Big Bang.
Chapter 10 The Primacy of the Mind. "The blind hope in materialism persists."
Chapter 21 Atheism vs. Theism "Like every ideology — political, religious, or intellectual — materialism at some point is closed to reason so that eminently intelligent adherents must make exceedingly idiotic pronouncements: “All of us human beings and all the objects with which we deal are essentially bundles of simple quarks and electrons;” “You’re nothing but a pack of neurons;” and “You’re a gigantic lumbering robot manipulated by genes.”
For me, materialism is far from absolute because it has failed again and again. No one can doubt we live in a bio-friendly universe. The multiverse strategy to avoid the existence of God borders on the absurd and furthermore declares the core of the physical world is irrational and thus unknowable. Giving up the ideology of my youth, abandoning personal preferences formed by culture, and following reason wherever it leads, I had no choice but to “allow a Divine Foot in the door.”
“This is why the DHS, FBI, CIA, HHS, USAID, FDA and the CDC must stop using scientism to guide US policy.” No, these organizations cannot be reformed: every staff member must be fired and their doors permanently shuttered sans replacement.
Thank you so much for such eye opening education! I have learned so much from you, and have shared as much as I can. You are changing the world and we are your warriors
And the Universities have embraced Scientism because the research money only flows when you buy into that narrative! Twenty years ago a research study reported that only about 20% of the medical studies were objective and unbiased with no predetermined goal in mind! The junk Pfizer RNA study stands as a monument to Scientism!
When I awaken each day, look out upon the beauty of God’s creation, I think He sure was one heck of an architect. I don’t see science, I see God’s hand at work.
