The scientific method has been intentionally quarantined from genuine curiosity!

The underling foundations of science need to be reviewed.

Because if we examine the foundations of cultural/scientific beliefs they are often found wanting. Driven and gate kept by cultural/scientific dogma rather than truth.

Facts taught in our schooled daze are frequently ‘fraudulent.’

The schooled daze focus upon remembering the RIGHT answers with little tolerance of counter questions to THEIR narratives has retarded science and medicine.

Loosing status and the idea of being ridiculed is THEIR number one method to prevent re-examination of the schooled daze ‘facts’ as adults.

The schooled fear of ridicule brings Instant dismissal to ‘paradigm threats.’ This is THEIR program to replace natural curiosity and revaluation through questions.

I have an article titled

We breathe air not oxygen

You may be interested to read

Some points:

Oxygen is a man-made product of air rather than a constituent of air. Oxygen is calibrated by its dryness, for example medical grade oxygen has 67 parts per million(ppm) of water contamination and industrial grade oxygen has 0.5ppm of water contamination.

Whereas lung physiology requires air reaching the alveolar sacs to be at 100% humidity. Can you see the problem?

If you research oxygen toxicity you’ll see the many ways the dehydrating effect of oxygen damages the lungs and central nervous system, and drives the formation of micro clots.

Oxygen is not prescribed for breathlessness. Instead it’s a regular prescription with end of life care. As oxygen is a very dry air, it first dehydrates the airway mucosa and then damages the alveoli.

You will be able to make an informed choice if your loved ones are ever offered oxygen instead of air.

You will also meet another counter culture idea in my article because we need to review the character of air, water and ice.

If water was purposely assigned a non-sense formula, Eg water is H2O as they did in the 1800s, how easy would it be to retard science and medicine?

Water is inert, an element, an insulator, hence it can cycle. Water supports us in every way.

Air is the gaseous form of water

Hence it is measured by its humidity or moisture content

Air is bubbles

Watch a kettle boil, the bubbles appear and ascend to the top and leave as steam, then disappear as they become air.

Bubbles carry substances

Eg smoke is bubbles carrying soot.

Water is liquid

Water comes into being as a full bubble or a drop

100% humidity is saturation point or the bubble to drop change

Rain falls as bubbles become drops.

Ice has both drops and bubbles

Dr. Leeman Henry, PhD, Univ. of Edinborough reviews the same issue here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAEAWyfuEWY&t=52s. Of course there is the famed study by Dr. Barbara Starwood, MD, out of Johns Hopkins, finding a couple decades ago that almost a quarter million die every year from medical caused death. https://iatrogenics.org/responsibility/72-societalimpact/280-medical-errors-still-the-third-leading-cause-of-death Famed “left the reservation” Pulitzer-nominated reporter Jon Rappoport’s interview with Starfield here https://newswithviews.com/Rappoport/jon100.htm). That was then? Hardly In 2016, Johns Hopkins calculated https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/study_suggests_medical_errors_now_third_leading_cause_of_death_in_the_us over 250,000 patients died each year from medical errors, the third leading cause of death and again in July 2022, the National Institutes of Health concluded death from medical errors as high as 440,000 — and possibly even more because of lack of reporting. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK430763/

Rancourt also discusses the issue of bad medicine in this interview with Matthew Ehret, Why Medicine is the Most Deadly Profession, https://matthewehret.substack.com/p/why-medicine-is-the-most-deadly-profession?utm_source=post-email-title&publication_id=260045&post_id=117066214&isFreemail=true&utm_medium=email And even the BMJ, in an article by David B Ross, associate clinical professor of medicine, in his May 15, 2023 article, The decline of science at the FDA has become unmanageable, https://www.bmj.com/content/381/bmj.p1061 has outlined the dog’s breakfast the somnolent wokesters have turned our science into.

Mercola brings up the issue of Pierre Kory, who trains doctors, and told him that “his experience has been that, at most, only 10% of doctors were capable of non-algorithmic thinking and real problem-solving — which became quite challenging for him because his job was to train the next generation of ICU doctors. Similarly, he found when he ordered consults, around 90% of specialists (irrespective of the specialty) would repeat a standardized algorithm back to him for the patients he had already seen more times than he could count. Conversely, only 10% could actually think about the case and provide valuable insights that assisted Kory in developing a treatment plan for a challenging patient.”

In fact, Mercola reported June 17, 2022, that “according to a 2011 Health Grades report, http://hg-article-center.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/7b/de/dc25d2c94d25ad88c9e1688c9adc/HealthcareConsumerismHospitalQualityReport2011.pdf the incidence rate of medical harm occurring in the U.S. is estimated to be over 40,000 harmful and/or lethal errors daily; in 2014 10.5% of American doctors admitted they’d made a major medical mistake in the last three months; and in 2016, Dr. Marty Makary published a report showing an estimated 250,000 Americans die from medical mistakes each year — about 1 in 10 patients — making it the third leading cause of death, right after cancer and heart disease.”

Starfield herself died of medical error, reported her husband, also a doctor: Her June 2011, death her husband attributed to the adverse effects of the blood thinner Plavix taken in combination with aspirin. However, her death certificate makes no mention of this possibility. In the August 2012 issue of Archives for Internal Medicine2 her husband, Dr. Neil A. Holtzman, writes, in part: "Writing in sorrow and anger, I express up front my potential conflict of interest in interpreting the facts surrounding the death of my wife, Dr. Barbara Starfield ... Because she died while swimming alone, an autopsy was required. The immediate cause of death was 'pool drowning,' but the underlying condition, 'cerebral hemorrhage,' stunned me ...Barbara started taking low-dose aspirin after coronary insufficiency had been diagnosed three years before her death, and clopidogrel bisulfate (Plavix) after her right main coronary artery had been stented six months after the diagnosis. She reported to the cardiologist that she bruised more easily while taking clopidogrel and bled longer following minor cuts. She had no personal or family history of bleeding tendency or hypertension. The autopsy findings and the official lack of feedback prompted me to call attention to deficiencies in medical care and clinical research in the United States reified by Barbara's death and how the deficiencies can be rectified. Ironically, Barbara had written about all of them."

Thinking critically makes me question any author who uses "The Left" or "The Right" so inclusively. 🤷 I followed the links and they were unconvincing to me that "The Left" wants to disable the Scientific Method . Take this link for instance https://chem.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Analytical_Chemistry/Supplemental_Modules_(Analytical_Chemistry)/Quantifying_Nature/The_Scientific_Method/Science_vs._Pseudo-science%3A_Limitations_of_the_Scientific_Method. Here the author is stating if one is not careful following the scientific method may lead you to believe PsuedoScience. Does Dr Droz believe in pseudoscience? Do all those on "The Right" want you to believe in psuedoscience? See how stereotyping and cherry picking data can lead you to false conclusions.

This is why we need decentralized science.

Most of our problems can be fixed by fixing the corruption in the systems that govern over our lives.

How do we organize against all of this rampant corruption in our systems?

A Network State - a new decentralized 4th branch of government that isn't part of the government at all, but rather 100% built and run by the people. A whole new ecosystem. This includes a decentralized news network, decentralized science, a safe have for whistleblowers, a decentralized monetary system we all agree to in case the current one collapses, decentralized debates, a parallel transparent voting system, decentralized education , ballot initiatives and more. Consider this: https://joshketry.substack.com/p/lets-build-a-4th-branch-of-government

It's funny that the left chatters all the time about how going to college improves a student's "critical thinking" ability, but it much more often does the exact opposite. What they call "critical thinking" amounts to nothing more than memorizing a bunch of cliches and never questioning them.

John...another great post on issues with our education system. I particularly like your point regarding the importance of the Scientific Method in lots of non-scientific topics and that "Science" isn't in the Scientific Method. I'm continually astounded that the curricula, approved by most states (45 at last count) does not teach the Scientific Method, and actually disparages it. This classic and well proven process virtually assures Critical Thinking, the lack of which is the central issue of our education system.

Nice article. I am amazed at how many smart people fall for the arguments from the left. This helps id some of their talking points and flaws.
