In the whole history of science, “Because I said so” has never held up as a valid explanation for anything. From Robert W. Malone at rwmalonemd.substack.com:
Continued root cause analysis of the COVIDcrisis
Now that Scientism has been defined, and the specific example of Dr. Anthony Fauci and the context and truth of his claim that “attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science” has been examined, lets turn to examining what is “Science”, at least that version of “Science” that I have been taught and practiced for over forty years.
Merriam-Webster: science (noun) sci·ence | \ ˈsī-ən(t)s \
Definition of science
1a: knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method
b: such knowledge or such a system of knowledge concerned with the physical world and its phenomena : NATURAL SCIENCE
2a: a department of systematized knowledge as an object of study: the science of theology
b: something (such as a sport or technique) that may be studied or learned like systematized knowledge: have it down to a science
3: a system or method reconciling practical ends with scientific laws: cooking is both a science and an art
4capitalized : CHRISTIAN SCIENCE
5: the state of knowing : knowledge as distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding
Personally, I prefer the point of view nicely summarized by Steve Savage
“Science is a verb.”
In an allusion to the John Mayer song, “Love Is A Verb,” Dr. Cami Ryan noted that as with the word “Love,” “Science” is a legitimate noun. But in both cases, it is the action, the process, and the effort – the verb – that really matters.
Science is a verb in the sense that it is a method (activity) involving the making of hypotheses, the design of experiments and the analysis of data. But a critical part of the scientific process is the conversation phase after the experimentation is done. Scientists share their findings with the broader community through publications or presentations at meetings. What happens next is a back-and-forth discussion including a critique of methods or interpretation, and a comparison with previous findings.
If there are flaws in the experimental design or interpretation, other scientists will point that out. To participate in the conversation, scientists need to be willing to hear and respond to feedback. If there are conflicting results, it may require additional hypothesis making and experimentation. Only when the conversation runs its course do the conclusions become a part of accepted scientific understanding.
There’s one set of rules for Covid, and another for the vaccines. From Madhava Setty, M.D. at childrenshealthdefense.org:
From the beginning, the official COVID-19 narrative has been inconsistent, hypocritical and/or contradictory because medical authorities used double standards to create the illusion their narrative was logical and sensible.
We are not only in an epidemiological crisis, we also are in an epistemological crisis. How do we know what we know? What differentiates opinion from a justified belief?
For nearly two years, the public has been inundated by a sophisticated messaging campaign that urges us to “trust the science.”
But how can a non-scientist know what the science is really saying?
Legacy media sources offer us an easy solution: “Trust us.”
Legions of so-called “independent” fact-checking sites that serve to eliminate any wayward thinking keep those with a modicum of skepticism in line.
“Research” has been redefined to mean browsing Wikipedia citations.
Rather than being considered for their merit, dissenting opinions are more easily dismissed as misinformation by labeling their source as untrustworthy.
How do we know these sources are untrustworthy? They must be if they offer a dissenting opinion!
This form of circular reasoning is the central axiom of all dogmatic systems of thought. Breaking the spell of dogmatic thinking is not easy, but it is possible.
If people will swallow Covid nonsense, which most have, they’ll swallow damn near anything. From Kit Knightly at off-guardian.org:
Maybe forcing people to believe your lies, even after you admit you’re lying, is the purest form of power.
“Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense.”
George Orwell, 1984
The “Covid pandemic” narrative is insane. That is long-established at this point, we don’t really need to go into how or why here. Read our back catalogue.
The rules are meaningless and arbitrary, the messaging contradictory, the very premise nonsensical.
Every day some new insanity is launched out into the world, and while many of us roll our eyes, raise our voices, or just laugh…many more accept it, believe it, allow it to continue.
Take the situation in Canada right now, where the government has enforced a vaccine mandate on healthcare workers, meaning in British Columbia alone over 3000 hospital staff were on unpaid leave by November 1st.
How have local governments responded to staff shortages?
They are asking vaccinated employees who have tested positive for Covid to work.
Whether or not you believe the test means anything, they notionally do. In the reality they try to sell us every day, testing positive means you are carrying a dangerous disease.
So they are requesting people allegedly carrying a “deadly virus” work, rather than letting perfectly healthy unvaccinated people simply have their jobs back.
This is insanity.
But could anything more perfectly illustrate the priorities of those running the game?
When people are afraid, they’ll follow any Pied Piper whose tune sounds like “safety.” From Doug “Uncola” Lynn at theburningplatform.com:
We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
– T.S. Eliot
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
– Led Zeppelin
Although most people are familiar with the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, many today may not realize the story was derived from actual events. The account, which evolved through the years into a fairy tale, described a village that was overrun by rats until a flute-playing magician, of sorts, came along to lead the infestation from the town. The “Piper” was dressed in bright colorful clothes and he captured the imagination of the people. As a result, the townsfolk offered to pay him money… if only he would lead the rats away. But when the piper appeared to remove the rats from the town, the people reneged on their offer and, in turn, the Piper came for the children.
Sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it?
Today, however, we would substitute the rats with Coronavirus® and with the Piper manifesting as the magician Fauci arrayed in all of the media’s colorful, electric lights. The people agreed to the Piper’s solutions at first but, after a while, they refused to pay the Piper and, now, the Piper has changed its tune once again. This time, he is coming to inject the children.
