Trumpian Thoughts

Trumps say many things out loud that I too have also thought. The thoughts that float into my awareness, are considered for a brief moment, and then discarded as illogical, irrational, inane, incorrect, crazy, senseless, absurd, sophistic, unreasonable, and unscientific..

Science is not ‘defined’ by the money

“A lot of time mainstream science agrees with stuff ten years later.”
[She was talking about “Alternative Medicines” and to avoid something scientifically-valid if you “follow the money!”.]

No. No, we do not. We follow verifiable facts and conclusions from following the Scientific Method.

If it is unverifiable, it is discarded. For everything verifiable, it is added to our collective knowledge which helps further new discoveries and new ideas.

Many discoveries and research are made from plants, animals, insects, previous research & science, etc.. along with all other sources.

We don’t discard something because someone “made money” from a discovery or research. The money does not invalidate the Science or research done. The two are intertwined, yes. But the Science is not ‘defined’ by the money (or the source of).

Sick and Tired of Ignorance

I feel like I’m going to explode with anger.

I am sick of people spreading false information.

I am tired of people sticking their heads in the ground.

I am sick and tired of people pushing their ignorance and hatred onto other people.

Go away, you stupid f#cks.

Limitations of the Scientific Method?

The Scientific Method is a powerful tool to aid in our understanding of the Universe and how it works.

But.. Does it really have any limitations?

If there currently is a limitation, then it is most likely from a lack (or misunderstanding) of knowledge gathered, the other tools used to gather information, a lack of imagination to conceptualize a new idea, and/or [usually] the failure to follow the Scientific Method (i.e. “Jumping to a Conclusion”).

These would all be flaws on the human side.. not in the methodology itself.
