Learning to see through our own bullshit.

In a multicultural society that continues to fragment by the day, using words like “evil” and “wrong” (or any of the equivalents they proxy in when one grows old and the people’s ears become numb to them) become less and less convincing. After all, multiculturalism is by definition moral relativism, and because we humans deeply desire order and security, we inevitably tribalise by some standards or others, and in-so-doing secure a likelier future for our genes through our progeny.

“I’m a(n) ________ (insert ideology) because it’s right to ________ and wrong to ____________ so there,” is rhetoric in its most base form. It signifies nothing specific, nor does it make any truth claim; merely implies a whole subculture of thought and tradition by the invocation of the movement’s name. It is merely a declaration of tribal affiliation. But it’s adequate really, because it’s how most people think and always will be, in some iterative form. At least we could try to be honest about such motives, instead of pretending them away with contrived moralisms wielded as weapons of guilt only against our neighbouring tribes and never our own.

I like it better when people are simply honest about their rational self-interest. That’s the real pragmatism.

“I advocate these actions because they will serve me, my family, my people/community (and/or my country). Can’t help everyone.” That kind of view to me is sublimely rational and devoid of any need for moral justification because it’s an amoral and entirely true statement.

And this is how everyday working class folks tend to think. The ones who grow the food and drive the trucks. We ought not overlook them; we do so at our peril.

Questioning Science is blasphemy.

I had a great discussion about a year ago with (my now friend) Grant Davis on the topic of Flat Earth. I was sceptical then, and remain so now, but the topic seems to be popping up again in some of the circles I’m part of, and so as you all should expect of me by now, I plan to give it an earnest look.
A quick YouTube searches yields this National Geographic “vs” video, in which an institute of Scientific Orthodoxy is claiming to take a balanced and scientific look at the flat earth theory.



The result? Propaganda 101:

1 – Make your ideological enemy look as stupid as possible and make his “movement” look like a cult (easy to do with 50 interviewees to choose from and a mandate to edit down to 10 minutes total).

2 – “Steel man” your own ideology; literally. Get the hunkiest science-chad you can find in academia and pay him to talk like a 17-year-old female freshman; “uh, in current year, like, if you question SCIENCE (glory to Me, the God of My own making), you’re a threat to everything!” (that kinda vibe).

3 – Stage a phoney science experiment that actually DOESN’T demonstrate what you want it to (Hint: the shoreline in the distance is ABOVE the hull of the boat, demonstrating that there is probably no curvature across the lake, and the only reason the (hand held) flag appears to be sinking below the “horizon” (which is below the distant shore πŸ€”) is because of a thing called WAVES. The boat has moved beyond the peak of the largest wave approaching the shore. It took me a second to logically reconcile the fact that what they showed is not explained by their Creed: “This can only be caused by curvature of the Earth. Praise be unto the Sphere.”

4 – When your opponent responds to this bogus evidence, cut it down to the most cultish response leaving intelligent viewers to comfortably assume that he saw what we saw, but talking about it goes against MUH SCIENCE (glory to Me, the God of My own making) so they cut it out.

5 – A bit of extra shaming to cap it off: “Do you REALLY believe this? I mean, seriously? This is DANGEROUS, you’re ignorant! You’re denying Science (glory to Me, the God of My own making)!!!”

Now I’m not a subscriber to the flat earth, but I do find it intriguing and there are lots of strong arguments supporting it. If the mainstream media want to really put this ultimate conspiracy theory to bed, they have to DEMONSTRATE their commitment to reason, evidence, and the scientific method instead of just using the LANGUAGE of science (i.e. the religious language which controls the post-enlightenment atheist masses) to shame and ridicule their enemies who are actually using reason, evidence, and the scientific method. Science is not a static THING. It’s a process. If you’ve reached the final answer to an investigation, you’re wrong. Keep going. Keep peeling back the layers of falsehood and inaccuracy, if you can cleanse the deceptions that stop you even getting started.

There are crackpots in every movement, they aren’t hard to find. Want to prove you’re right and win the battle for truth? Put forth a champion against a champion. Put your absolute strongest case forward via your smartest and most well-expressed and educated thinker. But I ask far too much of National Geographic. They’re a magazine, and like all magazines, they exist to sell things, not to be truthful.

When you use the language of morality to try and disprove falsifiable truth claims that pertain to the material universe… you are demonstrating that you are (perhaps unwittingly) part of a cult.

Notice how “Science” has ceased meaning a process by which we rigorously attempt to disprove hypotheses through repeated experimentation and logical analysis of the data… and now it refers to an almighty collective of lab-coat wearing priests who dictate from on high what is ABSOLUTELY TRUE and right and good for the world (and you can bet that includes NO creator, NO four-wheel drives, NO energy independence, NO borders, NO guns to enable you your Natural right of defence, and lots of sodomy for everyone – if you’re not into it, you’re a dinosaur and a bigot).

Can’t wait for more shaming and ridicule from the folks who want to be blocked from further commenting πŸ˜‰ Looking forward even more greatly to legitimate discussion around the topics of flat earth, conspiracies, science, and propaganda. There’s literally nothing more important to be talking about than at least three of those broad topics (because the Truth, if we can discover it, glorifies God and sets us all free).

Scepticism of orthodoxy is apparently hate speech now. 🀑

I’ve just been informed that by suggesting that one should not accept the orthodox holocaust narrative wholesale just because one is told to by authorities, and should instead engage in research and exploration with rational scepticism and an open mind (as with any truth claim which is falsifiable) and in so doing examine evidences which support counter-narratives, and from that fully informed position, make a decision to believe, disbelieve, or remain agnostic… I am apparently an “anti-Semite”.

Never mind that I have friends and close family members who are Jewish or part-Jewish (including my beloved sons). Obviously being sceptical of politically-driven history and aware of the countless times (evident every single day in the mainstream media) for propaganda to promote falsehoods, is tantamount to racial hatred for all people related genetically to the group involved with the topic at hand. πŸ€‘

I guess he got me? πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

The person who accused me of this has “lost all respect” for me.

The person who accused me of this is also off my lawn, for good.

In clown world, full-blown retards believe they have the moral authority to judge the sane. πŸ€‘ Honk! πŸ€£
