CAN SCIENCE BE TRUSTED?

JULY, 2019

Greetings Dear Friends
 
It has been a busy time for me - working on paintings for my upcoming show, working on a Jennis video and putting the final touches on our new CD. And July will be even busier - as you can see below.

Last month's article was called 'What is Real?'. This month we will also address the difficult task of trying to know what's what - to know what information can be trusted. How much can we trust science and the information it presents. What forces are at play that seek to manipulate and distort this information? How does it affect our daily life, our decision making?

Next month we'll look at the current state of journalism, the mainstream media versus the alternative media, the age of information wars.

I recently wrote this goofy little pome to remind myself of what is really important.
 
sacred
 
we are all sacred beings on a sacred path to sacredness.
we come from sacredness, we are born into sacredness.
everyday we are sacreducated so that we are better prepared for this sacredible journey.
we are sacredulous to learn that the sacred is not the opposite of the profane.
when we arrive at sacredness, we will be sacready.
we will recognize that we were dismembered.
we will remember that we were discognized.
we will realize that almost everything we thought we knew
is sacrediculous.
we will see that everything, even evil and hatred, is sacred.
how could it not be?

THE CRISIS OF SCIENCE
 
I'm a big fan of science. It brought us out of the dark ages and into the age of reason. Some of my biggest heroes are scientists. But there are some problems or challenges with the reliability of science and the scientific method. Partly it is due to the fanaticism that has always been an obstacle to the forward movement of knowledge. It has been said that science is the new religion, and like many religions, it can be rendered stagnant ineffective when it becomes dogmatic. Scientists have been persecuted over the years for challenging the established paradigms, and that still goes on today.
 
There is another big challenge that science faces in the modern era - it is being appropriated by big business, governments and other institutions who have specific agendas that they are trying to push. The results of scientific experiments, for example, are often skewed by the organization that is funding the work. True objectivity and thorough methodology is often pushed aside.
 
This short video (32 minutes) presents the many facets of this crisis of science very well:
