Whatever Happened to Science?

(Barb Wire) – The original Webster’s Dictionary, the 1828 version, defined science as:
“In a general sense, knowledge, or certain knowledge; the comprehension or understanding of truth or facts by the mind. The science of God must be perfect.” (All Emphasis mine.)
To “know”, again from the scholarly Webster, is “To perceive with certainty; to understand clearly; to have a clear and certain perception of truth, fact, or any thing that actually exists.”
To “feel”, same resource, is “To have the sensibility or the passions moved or excited.”
Passion is “The feeling of the mind, or the sensible effect of impression; excitement, perturbation or agitation of mind.”
“Beware. Your emotions will betray you.” My friend Chad Estes.
Science explains feelings. Feelings do not alter science. That is something very basic that I learned in my 6th grade Science class.
Science thrives on facts, evidence, and proof. The Scientific method requires proof. Feelings and emotions are not proof. Feelings and emotions cloud Truth. It is nearly impossible to convince someone of something they already refuse to believe.
Simply WANTING something to be true does not make it so. Simply believing something does not make it true. Founding Father Webster explained to us that truth is the “True state of facts or things.”
Feelings are not facts. Feelings cannot alter facts. No matter how much I want to BELIEVE that my parents are still alive, the facts prove otherwise. Facts, according to our friend, is “Reality; truth. To deny a fact knowingly is to lie.”
Is it possible for “science” to produce lies? If science produces a lie can it even be called science? Why do we allow so many falsehoods to be promoted by science? Science is not an opinion. Unproven science is not scientific. Unproven science is a theory. A theory, according to our scholarly friend “is speculation; a doctrine or scheme of things, which terminates in speculation or contemplation, without a view to practice.” Whatever happened to science?
Stating that 85% of scientists believe in Global warming is citing an opinion poll. Air is necessary for a human being to live. That is a fact and it doesn’t matter how many scientists agree with it. If 90% of scientists believed air was UNNECESSARY for human life, you would still need air to live. Opinion does not alter truth.
Opinion is not science, OK? Opinion is speculation. Speculation is “to view, to contemplate.”
(Sorry if you are “feeling” like I am running you in circles.)
Folks this is so simple. A theory is not proof. A theory LEADS to proof. Proof does not require peer reviewed opinions. Proof, like truth, stands alone. Look outside. Is the sun shining? Does it matter if your wife disagrees? Whatever happened to science?
Can I show you how much “Science” has been destroyed in America? Are you willing to simply explore what Joe Friday so famously said? “Just the facts, Ma’am.” Is it OK if I return to the days of Perry Mason and demand, “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth…so help me God (THE Truth)?”
There are only two sexes and only two genders. Male and female. Any “science” that says otherwise is voodoo science. Look between your legs for proof. “Feeling” like a woman when you have a penis does not invalidate science. When they dig up the remains of Bruce Jenner 500 years from now they will find a male in his casket. Science baby. Bruce Jenner ain’t no woman no matter how he “feels.” Why do so many intelligent people foolishly agree he is a woman?
An unborn baby is a human being no matter how much the mother doesn’t want it to be. To abort it is to kill it. To kill it is murder, no matter what some “judge” “feels.” Even if 95% of judges agree abortion is the “law of the land” murder can never be legal. The child is a human being at the moment of conception. What are judges doing judging scientific issues? Why does the left cling to science when it supports them and deny it when it doesn’t? Why do we let them?
Darwinian Evolution is a theory. As we learned earlier, a theory is speculation. There is NO SCIENTIFIC proof that man evolved from pond scum no matter how many scientists vote in favor of the theory. If macro-evolution was PROVEN it would no longer be a theory and there would no longer be a debate. Biblical Creation is just as valid of a SCIENTIFIC theory as Darwinism. Believing the Bible requires faith. So, does Darwinism. Both are systems of belief. Those who believe the theory of Creation are called Christians. Those who don’t are called scientists.
Science doesn’t lie, but scientists do. Special interests pay for scientists to do research. I have often wondered if “scientists” could find evidence for God if they were paid to prove His existence. I am sorry to break the news to you, but researchers today do their best to find the results that their benefactors pay for. Do you think Monsanto wants to know if GMO’s cause cancer? Government spends millions on research. Do you know of any government studies to find out when life begins in an unborn baby? Ever wonder why? Are they afraid of science?
Nothing seems real any more. Everything is opinion, emotion, speculation, and wishful thinking. Over the last 100 years science has done its best to destroy God and His creation. All you have to do is look around and you will see that, in the end, science has destroyed science.
When I was a teenager we used to tease each other and argue in the hallways, “If you are a man come into the locker room and prove it.” That challenge won’t work today. Thanks to voodoo science you can’t even believe your eyes any more. Lies rule the day. Nothing is as it seems. Why do we permit it? Why do we allow them to teach our children things that simply are not true? Why don’t we demand proof and truth? Can a nation built on lies survive?
