Dear ‘Marchers for Science’….

Written by Stephen J Crothers

Science is now controlled by money-driven nitwits bereft of scientific acumen, brainwashing the populous at large by the application of the methods of the advertising executive and the marketing manager, as they shoulder one another in their rush and nervous haste, with their evil eye and greedy, their stunted forms and weedy.

In an open letter to three such ‘marching scientists’ Stephen J Crothers writes:

Professor Stuart Khan,
Associate Professor Josh Madin,
Mr. Luke Briscoe,
I note your comments reported here:
We’re calling on politicians to make laws that are based on evidence that are appropriate for our future … Australians want to understand how science and how evidence is being incorporated into policy. Stuart Khan
We do a lot of work on the Great Barrier Reef and we’ve seen first hand the devastation up there and I just think there are some decisions being made that don’t have the best interests of our children’s future in mind“. Josh Madin
In terms of the workforce, making sure that that it’s not just a one-way science understanding — it’s looking at two ways of learning and two ways of teaching science and practicing science.” Luke Briscoe
This March is another example of the blind leading the blind. Science is no longer done by means of brains and a laboratory, but be means of mass-media induced mass-hysteria. Here are a few more recent examples:

Brian Cox was in Australia, on television, just a few weeks ago, hosting live transmissions from telescopes in Australia. All he and his mates did was talk juvenile rot, and lounge about literally drinking beer, telling childish jokes as if on Good Morning America. Nothing could be further from science than this drivel.
The cosmologists, led by Professor Stephen Hawking, are spending $100,000,000.00 of Milner’s thoughtless money trying to contact aliens, the same that fly saucers and UFO’s, and kidnap people for vivisection and experiments, because they all come from outer space! They will use radio telescopes all around the world, including the Parkes Radio Telescope. So incompetent are they, that for 17 years the people at Parkes could not tell the difference between cosmic microwave signals and microwaves from the ovens in their lunch room:

The aliens must be out there: after all, the ‘scientists’ even have a journal for them:
The International Journal of Astrobiology, Cambridge University Press,
Modern ‘science’ is steeped in magic, mysticism, superstition, and fraud; it is therefore not science. What you march for is not science. The primitive proclivity of the Human Condition to magic and mysticism is well known to anthropologists:
The reader may well be tempted to ask. How was it that intelligent men did not sooner detect the fallacy of magic? How could they continue to cherish expectations that were invariably doomed to disappointment? With what heart persist in playing venerable antics that led to nothing, and mumbling solemn balderdash that remained without effect? Why cling to beliefs which were so flatly contradicted by experience? How dare to repeat experiments that had failed so often? The answer seems to be that the fallacy was far from easy to detect, the failure by no means obvious, since in many, perhaps in most cases, the desired event did actually follow at a longer or shorter interval, the performance of the rite which was designed to bring it about; and a mind of more than common acuteness was needed to perceive that, even in these cases, the rite was not necessarily the cause of the event.” Frazer, J.G., The Golden Bough, Vol.1, 2nd Ed., MacMillan & Co. Ltd., Norfolk, (1900)
Science is now controlled by money-driven nitwits bereft of scientific acumen, brainwashing the populous at large by the application of the methods of the advertising executive and the marketing manager, as they shoulder one another in their rush and nervous haste, with their evil eye and greedy, their stunted forms and weedy. Vast sums of unaccountable public money has been and continues to be wasted on claptrap masquerading as science, with the taxpayers duped into believing that they are funding science and marching for science. The haughty so-called ‘scientists’ arrogantly hold themselves unaccountable to the taxpayer. It’s disgraceful, obscene, and a crime.
