Whenever a new “discovery” hits the presses nowadays, it depresses me knowing it cannot be believed at face value. Nothing we are told anymore about anything regarding “new knowledge” or discoveries can be believed. Every story comes with a catch or angle or spin. And given the preponderance of ignorance in the idiocracy, you can bet the “facts” and “findings” have not been arrived upon using a great deal of logic or honesty. Phrases such as, “leading experts,” “scientists,” “it is widely accepted,” “scientists theorize / estimate,” are just another way of saying, this is the story we’re selling so don’t ask questions or think, just accept. After all, these are leading experts.
How does someone become regarded as leading? Your boss at work, I’m sure, is the smartest and most competent one in the office, right? And our government is composed of the absolute most intelligent and brilliant men of integrity. Wait. What?
Office politics. Rules of academia (accreditation, peer acceptance and reaffirmation, group-think). Popularity. Association. These are all factors which determine who is a leading expert. Not competence or intelligence or integrity. Telling me that so-and-so says something, is meaningless. Is so-and-so God? I would advise doing a little digging into how “accepted” knowledge came to fruition.
The latest “major discovery” that they’re promoting is this big blue ball of glass. I will credit them with imagination, at least. I love different concepts such as glass rain and iron rain and lakes of hydrocarbons. And then all the possible implications of how this would play out, physical properties, interactions. Fun fun stuff. But is it really true? No. Because these are the same people telling me the supreme complexity of EVERYTHING came from absolutely nothing. These are NOT intelligent people. They only excel in fabricating stories and perpetuating made-up pseudoscience. And their stories are dumb and unimaginative for the most part. So all at once, I am insulted by their smugness and their pathetic lack of vision.
And therefore, as I compile by Theory of Everything, I’ll include my own myths and stories of “wouldn’t this be cool???” And it will RULE!!!
