As we all now know, if you want to answer a question scientifically, you take a poll. That’s the New Scientific Method. Scientific American magazine took such a poll regarding anthropogenic Gluball Worming (that’s Kim Du Toit’s term, IIRC) and since they didn’t like the results, it would seem Reasoned DiscourseTM has kicked in. I suppose the New Scientific Method will have to be amended – you take a poll of Open Society socialists only. Then you’ll get the right results.
This from Hockey Schtick, which has ostensibly maintained a link to the unwanted results. Take it for what you will. Do your own investigation. Myself, I find it hard to believe even though I know the left like the back of my hand and therefore such things should come as no surprise. I heard of this poll on the Dennis Prager show last week, and figured I should share.
I used to subscribe to Scientific American, until I received the impression that desperate academics were using it merely as a vehicle for getting published. I got tired of wading through so much evidence of non-inspiration, just to find the few interesting tidbits. Still I’ll give them credit for being the only place I’d heard of superfluids, pre internet.
To me it’s not terribly important one way or the other. The left has been crying “Wolf!” for generations now and it has worn thin, and worn out, for me decades ago. The planet Earth was supposed to run out of oil in the 1980s, and so we were supposed to adopt more socialism. The “Population Time Bomb” was going to get us by then too, we were told as elementary school students, and so we were supposed to adopt more socialism including forced population controls. The planet was going to freeze up in a new ice age, we were told back in the 1960s, and then it became Glueball Worming, and now it’s “Climate Change”. Those are just a few highlights, but this crap has been non-stop for what – about 150 years? They’ve lost control of the narrative now. What will happen as a result?
I figure it’ll have to get more down to the point – It’ll have to be plain old threats from the left at some point. When the spoiled child’s attempts at lying and manipulation fall flat, the all-out tantrums come next. The best we can do I suppose is ignore them, but when they start breaking things it gets difficult.
