Merriam-Webster defines science as “knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method.” The scientific method is designed to seek the truth in the natural world for the betterment of humanity. This has been the objective of science since we transitioned from the Dark Ages to the Age of Enlightenment.
There are two primary elements to this method of inquiry.
- Experimentation that is repeatable
We know that the law of gravity is a rock-solid principle because we can observe it and repeat it under laboratory conditions. Any phenomenon that cannot be observed cannot be scientifically established. Also, if an experiment cannot be repeated by other researchers under controlled conditions, then any conclusion made about that phenomenon is a theory or a pseudo-science.
In the late 1700s, a German physician named Franz Gall developed a new ‘science’ that he called Phrenology. Gall believed that since the cerebral cortex was what made man superior to other creatures, any bumps on the cortex would cause bumps on the surface of the skull. These bumps could then be read by a skilled physician who could then assess a person’s abilities, character and personality.
The problem with this new ‘science’ was that no one else could read the bumps on people’s heads to evaluate their personality. When other scientists tried, they failed to come up with an agreed-upon assessment of their subject’s character. Since it was not repeatable, the new science of Phrenology failed and fell into the category of pseudo-science.
When free inquiry is allowed, science is an excellent tool for determining the truth. However, when a powerful, totalitarian authority inserts itself into the scientific method, it becomes nearly impossible to arrive at the truth. Instead, truth is defined as what pleases the autocrats and empowers them rather than what is best for society. Phrenology would have become a science if a powerful agency had been able to punish anyone who rejected it.
It was hostility to free inquiry that kept western civilization in the Dark Ages for centuries. The papal system of the Roman Church had become adroit at ensuring that no other ideology be allowed to compete with their stated positions. It was not until the power of these tyrants was broken by the Protestant Reformation that we entered into the Age of Enlightenment.
There are numerous examples of how despots fight against free inquiry in history, such as book burnings (as in Nazi Germany), imprisonment (like Galileo and Jan Hus), and even genocide (as in the case of the Waldenses and the Huguenots). One of the more famous examples occurred at the height of the power of the Vatican.
In 1633, Pope Urban VIII forced Galileo to reaffirm the false idea that the stars revolved around the earth which was fixed. Galileo complied but was kept on house arrest for the rest of his life. The Roman church did not recant its condemnation of Galileo until 1992.
The ‘infallible’ church’s position was, “The proposition that the sun is the center of the world and does not move from its place is absurd and false philosophically and formally heretical because it is expressly contrary to the Holy Scripture.”
This assessment was centered on a misinterpretation of Ecclesiastes 1:5, which is an observation based on appearance that we all use to this day.
The infallible church further opined, “The proposition that the earth is not the center of the world and immovable, but that it moves, and also with a diurnal motion, is equally absurd and false philosophically and theologically considered, erroneous in faith.”
Along with this proclamation came the following penalty: “We order that by a public edict the book of Dialogues of Galileo Galilei be prohibited, and We condemn thee to the prison of this Holy Office during Our will and pleasure; and as a salutary penance We enjoin on thee that for the space of three years thou shalt recite once a week the Seven Penitential Psalms.”
Galileo was kept on house arrest for the rest of his life and was forced to agree never to teach his ‘heresy’ again. In case he decided to change his mind, he was shown the instruments of torture of the inquisition. The message of the Dark Ages was simple: the narrative of the ruling class takes precedence over science, or else.
This message was extremely effective. Galileo was convinced that holding true to his scientific findings was not worth being subjected to the Iron Maiden or the rack.
It is remarkable how an inquisition, with the threat of extreme pain, can change the course of science. This same process is occurring today. Those in power have discovered that all they need to do is ‘kneecap’ those with opposing theories that threaten their dominance. After enough pain is inflicted, the narrative that the ruling class demands is the one published in our most prestigious scientific journals and becomes ‘truth.’
We may find it amusing how the cultlike papal system of the Roman Church could make such an arrogant, disastrous decision. What is even more telling is that it took them 359 years to correct their foolish error. This is what happens when incompetent people have delusions of infallibility.
We should not operate under the illusion that, in this modern age, we are more enlightened than the papists. The idea of inflicting pain as a means of arresting scientific inquiry continues to this day. We have recently emerged from a two-year-long hysteria in which we were forced to quarantine, throwing away our freedom and our livelihoods in order to live by the dictates of incompetent people who claimed to be authorities on science.
This ‘science,’ which looked suspiciously like a totalitarian ideology, to deal with the pandemic flu bug dictated that we:
- Quarantine in our houses unless our work was considered ‘essential.’
- Wear masks when in public, even if alone outside.
- Social distance at least 6 feet when around others.
The number of absurd decrees by federal and world authorities were legion, but these were the top three. According to the CDC, quarantines helped to protect the public by preventing exposure to others who have a contagious disease. Of course, all it did was delay the inevitable, and almost everyone wound up catching the C-19 flu anyway (or never showed any symptoms of this ‘deadly’ virus when they did catch it).
This silly advice was advanced even though ‘herd immunity,’ in conjunction with proper therapeutics, prevention practices (such as exercise, Zinc and Vitamin D), and good hygiene practices, is the scientific way of dealing with a flu pandemic. No society can survive if it tries to quarantine until a virus is gone.
Masks and social distancing are almost completely worthless in stopping an airborne pathogen. These strategies were completely useless during the Spanish Flu of 1918 and were equally ineffective for the present, far less severe virus.
Apparently, people who were protesting for left-wing causes (a.k.a. rioters), or illegal immigrants crossing the border, were not a danger in spreading the flu.
In fact, they seemed to have some immunity that the rest of us lacked. Also, those involved in the sex trade and other vices were equally immune to the virus.
They even received an endorsement from the epitome of science himself, Dr. Fauci. It seems the only people who were ‘super spreaders’ were those who worked for small businesses, who wanted to go to the gym to work out, or those who wished to go to church.
The ‘pandemic flu’ seemed to only affect those who vote for Republicans.
It is almost as if a more powerful interest was purchasing ‘science’ and then distributing it to benefit themselves. When those who purchased science worldwide delivered their narrative, anyone who disputed it was guilty of spreading ‘misinformation.’ They were a threat to the ‘public.’ This is how the Galileo Initiative begins, by demonizing those who dare to seek the truth.
The term ‘misinformation’ has become a euphemism for the truth when used by the Globalists and their minions. Those who refuse to join in the suppression of the truth find themselves enrolled in the Galileo Initiative. Those who dared to dispute the new paid-for ‘science’ revolving around the ‘pandemic’ would have their livelihoods threatened. If they persisted, they were then shown the instruments of torture, namely censorship, bankruptcy or prison, that would be used against them if they did not get their minds right.
We all should know by now that each of the three strategies to deal with the flu pandemic was a complete disaster. The social costs of quarantining far outweighed the danger of a virus that had a 98% recovery rate. Some of these social costs included distress from loneliness and not being available to loved ones who were ill, the creation of communication deficits in young people, food insecurity, the inability to pay one’s bills, the inability to get needed health care, and more domestic violence due to stress, just to name a few.
However, the CDC still considers quarantining an excellent strategy for dealing with viruses. I am very confident they will recommend it again for the next ‘pandemic.’ This strategy was extremely successful, not in eradicating the pandemic but in further eroding freedom.
This type of exploitation of science was only the beginning. The medical field was further corrupted when legitimate medication to treat the pandemic flu bug was banned by the FDA. Hydroxychloroquine had been used for years to treat malaria, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. It was also found to be highly successful in treating those with C-19 flu.
Many doctors claimed that they were having great success in treating their patients with this highly effective, cheap drug. However, this did not stop the bureaucrats who have no medical experience dictating to them that their observations were ‘heresy.’ The bureaucrats falsely claimed that this medication caused heart rhythm problems but only when taken for C-19. Millions of people have been taking this drug for malaria for the last seventy years while suffering few, if any, ill effects. However, for some convenient reason, it resulted in ‘heart problems’ when taken for C-19.
According to Dr. Pierre Kory who wrote The War on Ivermectin: The Medicine That Saved Millions and Could Have Ended the C-19 Pandemic, cheap drugs like Hydroxychloroquine were a huge threat to the pharmaceutical business. They were also a threat to the portfolios of politicians who were heavily invested in these pharmaceutical industries. Suddenly, science and the public well-being began to take a back seat to other considerations, like greed.
Fortunately, those who stood to profit from the death of thousands by recommending ineffective strategies did not have access to an Iron Maiden or the rack. Even without these tools of torture, they were able to kill off Hydroxychloroquine in 2020. This was done just in time to enhance the portfolios of the wealthy and help eliminate some of the more ‘useless’ people in society.
According to Dr. Kory, cheap drugs such as Ivermectin and Methylene Blue were shown to be excellent treatments for those few who were suffering long-term effects of C-19. However, these were inexpensive also and had to be dispatched to ensure greedy pharmaceutical executives and politicians could gain power and wealth through the ineffective and possibly dangerous vaccines.
Even medical journals that were once respected joined the rush to return to the days before free inquiry. These journals are now controlled by the pharmaceutical industry, which puts profit before medical well-being. The New England Journal of Medicine, once thought to be a legitimate source of medical information, is said to have brazenly published fraudulent and false articles showing that Ivermectin was ineffective or even dangerous.
When Galileo made his incredible discovery, he thought the world would be grateful for his findings. He had managed to singlehandedly advance the cause of science, contribute to the well-being of his fellow man, and increase the knowledge of humanity regarding the cosmos. Dr. Kory was under the same illusion when he discovered the beneficial effects of Ivermectin. He mistakenly believed he would be hailed as a hero who could have saved thousands of lives with his new discovery.
What he learned was that the wealth and power of the elite takes precedence over the health and well-being of the public.
When it comes to evil, no good deed goes unpunished. Instead of being hailed as a hero, the American Board for Internal Medicine (ABIM) threatened to pull his license so he could no longer practice medicine.
In other words, he became enrolled in the Galileo Initiative, which began by attempting to deny him the ability to make a living.
Fortunately, his lawyer argued that, to destroy his reputation and bear false witness against him, the ABIM would have to show evidence that Dr. Kory was wrong and misinformed. Since they were unable to do this, they were forced to ignore him and allow him to speak freely. These frauds quickly discovered that mindless false accusations do not pass for science in many courts of law, at least not yet.
Like Galileo, Dr. Kory did not know that poking the pharmaceutical industry was like ‘poking a bear.’ When a bear feels threatened, he rises up and wreaks havoc on the offender. It seems that the pharmaceutical industry is not all that different from the Vatican or any other beast that feels vulnerable when its malfeasance is exposed.
This attack on free inquiry continued to plague the world with the promulgation of C-19 vaccines. There was never any evidence that the vaccines actually worked to curb the virus, but we were assured by the ‘experts’ that they were safe.
During a hearing on October 12, 2022, on the European Union’s C-19 response, Pfizer’s president of international developed markets, Janine Small, admitted that its vaccine had never been tested before its release to the public on its ability to prevent the transmission of C-19. It is doubtful that any of the vaccines were tested before implementation. The reason is the European Union did not care if it prevented the virus, as its primary purpose was to curb freedom.
Despite this fact, the world was treated to the relentless propaganda that the vaccines were effective at stopping the pandemic. We now know that there was no science behind this assertion at all. The vaccines were never about stopping C-19 but rather about stopping freedom. The mandate was what was most important as it was needed so the government could control what goes into our bodies and so they could put limitations on travel.
We have now found that the vaccines are actually dangerous to a significant number of people, causing myocarditis and other injuries, especially among the young. This is interesting since the youth are most resistant to the effects of C-19, so there is no reason to demand that they all be immunized. Herd immunity with proper hygiene and therapeutics should have been sufficient for the vast majority of young people. Since there is no real science behind having K-12 or university students be immunized, this has led many to rightly suspect nefarious motives for vaccinating our youth.
This became evident when the Florida Surgeon General released a shocking report in October of 2022. According to Dr. Joseph Ladapo, there was an 84% increase in the incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. Instead of investigating the claims of Dr. Ladapo, he was instead enrolled in the Galileo Initiative. If it were not for Governor DeSantis, he would have been dispatched and ruined not long after he issued his report.
The sad fact is that young people were not particularly susceptible to succumbing to C-19, so there was no real reason for all of them to take the ‘vaccine.’ We may never know how many young people died from the vaccine that was unnecessary for the vast majority of them to take. Many of these youth would be alive today if greed, rather than free inquiry, had not replaced science.
We were told by the ‘professionals’ that we need to ‘follow the science’ and listen to the experts when it comes to the pandemic. “Follow the science” has now become a euphemism for “follow whatever crazy orders our overlords issue because it empowers them and makes us subservient.” If you do not “follow the science,” you will be registered for the Galileo Initiative so you can be punished for your disobedience.
We have now learned that the definition of ‘science’ is whatever the evil globalists say that it is. According to James Murphy at the New American, “During the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Sustainable Development Impact Meetings in September, UN Undersecretary-General for Global Communications Melissa Fleming made some frightening comments regarding what she referred to as “disinformation” and “fake news” as it pertains to climate change, C-19, and social media.
“You know, we own the science, and we think that the world should know it, and the platforms themselves also do,” Fleming said. “But again, it’s a huge, huge challenge that I think all sectors of society need to be very active in.” It seems her English is about as good as her science.
Just as the Vatican ‘owned the science’ during the Dark Ages, so now the evil globalists own the scientific narrative and the means of dispensing it. No unapproved ‘science’ can make it to the public if it interferes with the totalitarian designs of the globalists.
We certainly saw this with the vaccine propaganda that was designed to create hysteria rather than treat a virus. We were treated to false accusations that the unvaccinated were killing people and that there was now a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated.’ If you failed to get the vaccine (unless you were an immigrant or a rioter), you were a super spreader and a threat to your neighbors.
What we really discovered is that if we do not participate in a globalist-inspired hysteria, we will meet the same fate as Galileo.
If this were not bad enough, we now have the science of ‘transgenderism.’ Even though it is biologically impossible to ‘transcend your gender,’ we are assured that this new ‘social construct’ is completely scientific.
We are now treated to the science of gender-affirming surgery. Gender-affirming simply means that a child is experiencing emotional turmoil and is now being propagandized, for profit, to believe he/she is the opposite sex.
These surgeries include operations and chemicals that turn children into eunuchs for the rest of their lives. How this is gender-affirming care is a mystery to anyone who is not a deluded moron. This ‘science’ is instituted by people who believe there is no difference between males and females. They apparently failed basic biology and have no understanding of the effects that the X and Y chromosomes have on a person.
Seattle Children’s Hospital has been bragging about being… “the only pediatric academic medical center with fellowship-trained plastic surgeons who provide gender-affirming surgery” in their region. They stated, “We will continue to offer evidence-based gender-affirming care because it is lifesaving care and is aligned with our mission to help every patient live their healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.”
As a rule of thumb, if you ever hear a finding is ‘evidence-based’ or ‘gender-affirming,’ you can safely assume it is neither.
What these frauds are saying is that if the sexuality of a child is not ruined, they are likely to commit suicide. Apparently, turning a boy’s penis into a vagina or cutting off a girl’s breasts facilitates the good mental health of youth. If they can get this false narrative to stick, they will then be ready to enroll those of us who resist this idiocy in the Galileo Initiative.
Standing at the ready to implement the Galileo Initiative, the American Medical Association, the Children’s Hospital Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting that the Injustice Department (formally the U.S. Department of Justice) “take swift action to investigate and prosecute” “high-profile users on social media” who have allegedly created a “campaign of disinformation” against children’s hospitals that offer “gender-affirming health care,” leading to threats and harassment, including a bomb-threat hoax at Boston Children’s Hospital.
These faithless fiends apparently gleaned their ‘science’ from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.’ They then move to accuse the law-abiding of plotting against them.
This ‘bomb threat,’ if there even was one, was probably perpetrated at their request.
The fact is that the scientific method is completely worthless when God is taken out of the equation. When Godless evil owns science, science becomes nothing more than a doctrine of demons.
So here we are, bathed in evil and headed for the Dark Ages, and we have not heard a peep out of our churches. I thought we were supposed to be salt and light.
I wonder what the Laodiceans think of “gender-affirming care.” What is their position on the idea of American doctors administering puberty blockers, hormone therapies, and experimental gender surgeries on minors—including double-mastectomies for girls, which involves surgically removing the breasts, and vaginoplasties for boys, which involves surgically removing the penis and turning the tissue into an artificial vagina?
Are they appalled that there is not even a working definition of “disinformation?” Are the Laodiceans on board with the descent into the Dark Ages that the Protestant Reformation rescued us from so many years ago? I guess they are too busy fighting climate change to notice these trivial matters.
It will not be long before Scripture is called “disinformation,” but I doubt they will be bothered by that in the least.
The Dark Ages are upon us, and the word of God is under assault. The Gospel is the light of the world, and it is time for the church to dust it off and use it. The doctors, parents, government officials and bureaucrats who perpetuate these evils need to be called to repent in the name of Jesus.
We are not far away from a new ‘Council of Tarragona’ or ‘Council of Trent’ in which owning a Bible, or its proper interpretation, will be a serious offense.
The Bible stands in opposition to the suppression of truth, false accusations of racism, the pagan notion of climate change, and the various sexual perversions that are breaking down our society. These are the avenues of power for those who love evil, and they will not abandon their ways until they are dealt with by the Lord of Heaven.
Soon all the faithful will be subject to the Galileo Initiative. We are the target of this Satanic madness, and no person of faith should ever feel comfortable surrendering to it. Let us make sure that when we are persecuted, it is for Christ’s sake. When the world turns against us because we proclaim God’s law and his Gospel, then our reward will be great in heaven.
