Are We Turning Our Backs On Science? - Greg Satell - Medium


https://medium.com/@digitaltonto/are-we-turning-our-backs-on-science-2f97913599e5
This is a major problem, because if we are only willing to accept evidence that agrees with what we already think we know, we are unlikely to advance our understanding. Perhaps even worse, it opens us up to being influenced by pundits — those with strong opinions but questionable expertise. When we turn our backs on science, we turn our backs on truth.
This kind of sums up quite well the issue of the status of science within public debate. A lot of people have a sort of love-hate relationship withscience, whereas they love it when it conforms to their opinions and hate it when it contradicts them. For them, science is at best a tool in their box to back up their arguments or, at worse, a religion that replaced other older religions, and which one can simply discard when one feels it is not up to scratch.

If policymakers and voters really want to be “realistic,” then it is essential to appreciate the full #future costs of the path on which they are currently set and to acknowledge the dangerously perverse incentives for escalating #violence, extortion, and authoritarian rule that it entrenches.
Progressive forces must act together on both sides of the border to reframe the #debate.

O’Brien knew everything. A thousand times better than Winston, he knew what the world was really like, in what degradation the mass of human beings lived and by what lies and barbarities the Party kept them there. He had understood it all, weighed it all, and it made no difference: all was justified by the ultimate purpose. What can you do, thought Winston, against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?

The Great #Climate #Debate Pt. 2 Feat. #RalphEllis - #TruthWarrior LIVE
#davidknightshow

In this episode I speak with Author Ralph Ellis about his peer reviewed scientific paper entitled 'Modulation of ice ages via precession and dust-albedo feedbacks' which he co-authored with Michael Palmer and which demonstrated that temperature was controlled by albedo, not CO2. It has so far had over 13,000 downloads, making it one of the most successful papers of recent years.

Support Anarchist Bookfair #Malmö


WHY

Last year, Anarchist Bookfair Malmö gave us hope, strength, new ideas and a diversity of tactics to keep on struggling for another world. This year we want to make this happen again.
We are right now in the starting of the preparations for the Anarchist Bookfair Malmö 2019 and we want to fill it with book presentations, panel-debate, lectures, workshops, stalls, talks, meetings, food, music, etc.
Although we wish for the bottom of our hearts that we do not need to use the capitalist system that we are under, we need contributions to make this bookfair happen.
There is still some room for those who want to talk about any interesting theme or bring their material here! Just get in contact here!

Distancing myself from Twitter

This past week has been rough for me on Twitter, and it was even before the white supremacist terrorist attack on a mosque in new Zealand. The fact is that I can't prevent myself from interjecting myself in online arguments, and then I have to deal with more fruitless debate that I really need.

That's why I decided today to protect my account. I will still be able to follow people and interact with my current followers, but even if I happen to reply to Someone Who's Wrong on the Internet™ (see https://www.xkcd.com/386/), it won't be able to degenerate into a travesty of a discussion.

This decision stems from my recent interactions with people who treat debate as a sport or worse, entertainment, and seem to like nothing more than point out to people that they are wrong according to their standards. These accounts even mention "debate", "argument" or "logic" in their bio to further the point that they aren't on Twitter to exchange ideas, just to punch people down with words.

The people who vaccinate the least are the most educated and affluent


Here is a quote from Prevent Disease

Studies Demonstrate The More Educated You Are, The Less Chance You Will Vaccinate

More educated parents are less likely to vaccinate, which contradicts the misconceptions of many health professionals who profess that parents don't vaccinate because they are under-educated, poor or misinformed.

One publication of medical research linking the MMR vaccine to autism in The Lancet in February 1998 sparked a decade-long controversy about the triple jab. Following the initial publication, the uptake rate of the MMR vaccine dropped from 92% in 1997/98 to 80% in 2003/04.

A report examines how the response to the MMR controversy varied between parents with different levels of education. It revealed that:

Before 1998, highly educated parents were up to 8% more likely to take up the MMR vaccine... Show more...

Some thoughts on debate and the political spectrum...





I've noticed the vaccine debate parallels the gun-control debate in many ways. Both seem to be very polarizing, with not a lot of middle ground. Both sides view the other as a danger to public health and especially children. It seems that no matter how much the topic is argued and debated people remain very rigid in their position.

While there may be some individual exceptions, it's interesting to me that both sides in the debate tend to skew between left-leaning and right-leaning politically. (While there may be some right-leaning individuals who support a mandatory vaccination schedule,) it seems those who are opposed tend to mostly lean right. This could possibly be to do with an imposed Hegelian dialectic, as it seems to me there would be a lot of left-wing reasons to oppose forced vaccinations. Another... Show more...

💉 Some thoughts about the vaccine debate...





There's been some more debate around here lately about vaccinations and I noticed the pro-vaccine people frequently misrepresent the position of those opposed. So in the interest of setting the record straight, I thought I'd write a little thing to clarify my position.

First of all, I understand the theory behind vaccination. When a person is sick with some kind of virus, like for instance chicken pox... Once they recover their body's immune system develops antibodies so that they don't get sick again. So the idea of vaccinations is to give the immune system a chance to develop a defense against a certain virus without having to become infected and suffering the illness. Like a short cut to immunity. We understand the theory.

The thing is, we simply don't trust the pharmaceutical industry who is producing these vaccines and we don... Show more...
