Karl Popper on pseudo – scientific / pre-scientific theories
Written by dhf66.wordpress.com
Karl Popper, the master mind who described and made readily available to us the modern scientific method has a great piece on pre-scientific and pseudo-scientific theories in his lecture:
Science as Falsification
“These theories appear to be able to explain practically everything that happened within the fields to which they referred. The study of any of them seemed to have the effect of an intellectual conversion or revelation, open your eyes to a new truth hidden from those not yet initiated. Once your eyes were thus opened you saw confirmed instances everywhere: the world was full of verifications of the theory. Whatever happened always confirmed it. Thus its truth appeared manifest; and unbelievers were clearly people who did not want to see the manifest truth; who refuse to see it …”
Here is a Youtube version of “Science as Falsification” for those who prefer listening to the lecture:
It becomes increasingly clear that the root cause of the climate change travesty is United Nations misconception of the scientific method – United Nations premature endorsement of a pre-scientific theory as science.
Everything is allowed by United Nations global warming theory: More rain and less rain, more ice and less ice, higher temperatures and lower temperatures!, more wind and less wind – the sea level is rising anyhow – this theory prohibits nothing – nothing its believers would accept as a falsifying experience.
By United Nations endorsement of pre-scientific theory United Nations has become a kind of cultural problem which it was put up to achieve international co-operation in solving.
By its charter (Article 1 – 3) United Nations was supposed to:
“To achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character.”
The following definition of culture will help to understand why a misconception of the scientific method must be regarded as a problem of a cultural character:
“A culture is a way of perceiving, thinking and acting – which has been learned, developed or discovered -while learning to deal with internal and external challenges – and which is being taught as an acceptable, or right way of perceiving, thinking and acting.”
By the establishment of the body: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) United Nations has put up a body to advocate on a pre-scientific theory. A pre-scientific theory by which it is causing nations to waste a vast amount of resources. Resources which could so much better have been used in line with it´s charter – to ease human suffering by known and real causes – by war – by what United Nations has failed to achieve: To maintain international peace and security.
The United Nations was not created to take mankind to heaven, but to save humanity from hell.
— Dag Hammarskjöld, Secretary-General from 1953 to 1961
War is hell – climate change is a pre-scientific theory – far from hell.
Have mercy with us.
