downfall of science and the rise of intellectual tyranny
Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
Originally published January 21, 2011, by Natural News
(NaturalNews) The very reputation of so-called
"science" has been
irreparably damaged by the invocation of the term "science" by GMO
lackeys, pesticide pushers, mercury advocates and fluoride poisoners
who all claim to have science on their side. It seems that every toxin,
contamination and chemical disaster that now infects our planet has
been evangelized in the name of "science."
Where "science" used to be highly regarded in the 1950's, today the
term is largely exploited by pharmaceutical companies (1),
biotech giants and chemical
to push their own for-profit agendas. Actual science (3) has little
to do with the schemes now being pushed under the veil of science.
To make matters even worse for the sciences, many so-called "science
been revealed to have financial ties to the very same companies whose
profits are shored up by their activities (5).
Rather than defending any sort of scientific truth, science bloggers
have become the
whores of Big Pharma, Monsanto (7),
pesticide manufacturers, chemical companies and toxic mercury (8) factories.
There's hardly a dangerous chemical in widespread use today that the
science bloggers haven't venomously defended as safe and effective.
Many are just blatantly paid off by corporate entities to run around
the internet pushing GMOs, chemicals (9) and
This realization has caused the science bloggers to be widely ridiculed
by intelligent people who see right through their thinly-veiled (but
well-funded) disinformation campaigns. Where science bloggers once had
credibility, they now are seen as intellectual prostitutes for
dangerous corporate agendas that benefit powerful companies at the
expense of environmental health (10)
If they weren't doing all this in the name of science, it wouldn't be
so bad, actually. If they called themselves "corporate whore bloggers"
instead of "science bloggers," their actions wouldn't be so harmful to
the reputation of science itself. But, to the great detriment of actual
science, they insist on calling themselves "science bloggers."
Now the reputation of
Because the for-profit GMO
poison pushers, vaccine (12)
corporate front groups continue to conduct their activities under the
false name of "science," the term is losing its meaning. This should be
cause for alarm among those who practice legitimate science. (Where are
the astrobiologists when you need them?)
As we've seen all too frequently, "science" can be easily distorted or
exploited to achieve a desired political or profiteering goal. But the
ruse is rather apparent — the public is awakening to the science
fraud (13) and
that the term "science" doesn't really mean what it used to. It's
suffering a loss of reputation
to such a degree that the term "science"
no longer means a system whereby intellectually honest people search
for the underlying truths of how nature operates. Today, "science" is
used not to search for truth,
but to distort the truth.
with "fraud" to
understand the spin
Instead of seeking knowledge and understanding, for example, "science"
is used as an intellectual bludgeon to halt rational skepticism and
discussion on topics such as GMOs, vaccines (14), mercury
(15) in the
water, the mysterious deaths of animals, the collapse of
honeybee populations and so on. It's a kind of intellectual tyranny (16) that has
been invoked against those who oppose any kind of corporate agenda that
can be dressed up to look like actual science.
In several contexts, the term "science" has become synonymous with
"fraud." As in the following headlines (replace "science" with "fraud"
as you read them):
has now been revealed that the researchers who made up the
fictitious study results were engaged in SCIENCE."
asked how he came up with the fabricated clinical trial data upon
which the FDA approved the drug (17), discredited
researcher Humphrey Brokendata explained he was only engaged in
In fact, the vast majority of the popular news reports you might read
about so-called "scientific" findings make a whole lot more sense if
you replace the word "science" with "fraud." For example, imagine the
words being exchanged in these headlines:
• GMOs (18) backed by
• FDA insists its drug approvals are based on SCIENCE
• Monsanto claims the SCIENCE behind its seed technology is better than
• Vaccines stand their ground this flu (19) season thanks to
You see how suddenly everything makes more sense on these particular
topics when you replace "science" with "fraud?"
This isn't a stretch, either. The "scientific" agenda behind GMOs, for
example, has absolutely nothing to do with real science. It is a
corporate for-profit agenda that seeks control over the world's food
forcing farmers to buy seeds (21)
year after year
from one centralized corporate entity. That's not science. It's just a
monopolistic crime against humanity
to assault the basic rights of
people to be able to grow their own foods (22) and harvest
their own seeds without worrying about those seeds being contaminated
with genetic pollution
genetically engineered crops.
The real science on GMOs indicates that reasonable people have every
right to be concerned about the DNA pollution of the foods that
our world. But through the blasphemous invocation of the term
"unscientific," the GMO pushers attempt to characterize rational,
reasonable people who hold concerns about GMOs as "unscientific." As if
they didn't believe in the Law of Gravity or Newtonian physics for
loses credibility by the day
This endless assault on common sense by those who use the term
"science" as a cover for dangerous global experiments in plant and
human biology will only further
discredit the scientific community (25). When
you see "scientific" doctors and dentists putting their reputations
behind things like water
fluoridation — which is the blatant mass pollution of the water
(27) with a
toxic hazardous waste chemical — it's no surprise why the
street cred of so-called "scientific thinkers" continues to erode.
This is all very sad to see, of course. I consider myself a proponent
of scientific thinking, and I strongly value the Scientific Method as
one approach to gaining knowledge. I'm educated in microbiology,
genetics, physics and have acquired a considerable amount of scientific
knowledge in many other areas. I'm currently studying M-theory (28)
and the intersection of quantum physics with consciousness (29).
(There's a taboo topic in conventional scientific circles for ya —
don't talk about consciousness, for God's sake! To quote
Einstein, God (30)
may not play dice
with the universe... but consciousness does!)
As a proponent of scientific discovery, even I have to admit that
science has lost its credibility due in large part to the corporate
takeover of science. Whereas science was once a popular and
respected field of study for young thinkers, very few people in America
enter the sciences these days. More and more people are waking up to
the reality that many of the great
evils that have been unleashed upon
our world have been conducted in the name of science: GMOs,
flu vaccines, plastic food containers, pesticides (31),
mercury poisoning, fluoride in the water supply, psychiatric
pharmaceuticals and so on.
Science, it turns out, hasn't saved us: It has quite possibly doomed
us. The destruction that has already been unleashed upon our world in
the name of science may not be reversible in the era of humankind. We
may be setting ourselves up for a global food (32) supply
catastrophe due to GMOs and pesticides, for example, and literally
billions of human beings may ultimately die from it. "Science" was the
invocation behind GMOs and pesticides, even though in truth the whole
scheme was pulled off through what can only be called "junk science" or
Real science is a
valid tool when used
Again, it saddens me to see science misappropriated in this way,
because true science is a valid and valuable method by which human
beings can seek to gain understanding about the universe in which we
live. It is not the only pathway to knowledge, of course (a frequent
mistaken assumption by those who are steeped in it), but it is a
valuable one nonetheless. Yet thanks to today's corporate-led
"scientific" schemes involving GMOs, vaccines, pesticides and other
chemicals, the value of science itself is being rapidly lost to the
intellectual tyranny demonstrated by those who destroy our world in the
name of science.
Where real scientists once used to welcome debate (33) and
discussion, today's "science" advocate operate with the intellectual
finesse and flexibility of a two-ton block of granite. You either agree
with them or you are branded an idiot. There is no discussion, no
debate, no thought and no real science involved. On so many of the big
issues that matter today — vaccines, GMOs, mercury, fluoride,
pesticides and so on — the "science" position is that of a
self-proclaimed dictator (or tyrant) who believes he causes things to
be true and factual through the mere act of stating them. That isn't
science. It's just an advanced form of arrogant
bullying framed in the
language of science and carried aloft by a never-ending stream
It is, in essence, intellectual
Science may yet
It was Oppenheimer who, after playing a key role in the invention of
the atomic bomb, quoted these words from the ancient Hindu text known
as the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I
am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
Today, a very large segment of the scientific community is engaged in
much the same behavior: Destroying our world through the incessant and
utterly unscientific advocacy of dangerous, destructive interventions
that threaten our food, our waterways and the very future of life (34) on Earth.
So-called "science," it seems, may ultimately be the destroyer of life
as we know it on our planet. And yet "science" is worshipped by its
followers as the savior of
life on Earth. There is a dangerous
disconnect in that situation. Perhaps one of Biblical proportion.
I suspect that one day a future alien civilization
(35) will study
the history of humankind and attempt to determine how we
destroyed ourselves. After sorting through the decomposed rubbish of
the long-extinct human civilization, one alien will turn to the other
alien and nod its head to say, "It seems their civilization was based
on SCIENCE FRAUD."
P.S. For the record, I am not
opposed to actual science, nor the use of
the Scientific Method as one avenue through which wisdom may be gained.
There are other methods
(36) of gaining
wisdom, however, such as spirituality, meditation, the study
of consciousness and even quantum connections between sentient beings.
All of these non-science methods are utterly disregarded by the
"scientific" community which believes so strongly in its own dogma that
the brains of its top scientists have no room left for any ideas other
than their own. That is, by the way, the very definition of a closed
mind. It also happens to be the reason why conventional science only
advances at the speed at which its dogmatic intellectual tyrants retire
