Religious Hope And Miracles
Hi guys , I was never much on Religion , well not exactly true . Until I was maybe ten years old , around that time I began to question things and the logic of some things which people believe , sight unseen . " Faith " is the key I have been told in the past , unwavering faith in things you cannot , cannot hear , cannot smell . In life we must have some degree of faith in things we are taught , things we cannot personally xperience or see first hand . . I just saw a short ittle video by Carl Sagan ( if you don't know him you should ask Mrs Google and read a little about him . His nstructive video shows how the ancient Greeks figured out that the world was in fact Round . It is a fairly " simple " concept to prove as Erathostines managed to do . ( the video is on youtube ) . It is such an elegant proof but he had to have a worker walk for many miles and count the paces he took to find the distance between two obelisks . I can have Faith in the conclusions reached because the method used can be understood by almost anyone , Almost !!
Some scientific facts and conclusions are not so easily understood , even by educated people if not educated in the particular field of science . Science is usually self correcting in that a theory without sufficient proof or data to back it up will be peer reviewed and deemed to be correct or incorrect , sloppy erronious research or research that can be trusted . I cannot fly to the Moon or descend into the Matianuas Trench about 7 miles down but when I see enough evidence and an explanation of how the work was carried out I generally , using common sense and logical reasoning conclude that the " facts " i am presented with are Real Facts or as a blonde and rather offensive ( at times ) white House press secretary once said " Alternative Facts " . There are Facts and then there are simple Lies ,
I could not be in a lab in Wuhan or a Batcave , just as I cannot be on the Moon so at some point I have to believe that sciebce is indeed self correctin and above all honest .. Peer Review should theoretically seperate the wheat fro. The chaff , eventually .
Elizabeth Holmes , currently on trial for massive fraud is a person who managed to fool the medical community , members of her Board , scientists an Celebrities , Henry Kissinger for one example . This is whathappens when Peer Review drops the ball or I suspect complicit in the fraud . . Bad science happens but it is usually expoded pretty quickly . The instigato of the Autism fiasco found and admitted the fraud and publicly exposed it . This is why I trust science . Frauds give science and scientista a bad name and they are rooted oyt and their fraudulent " Research " is excised from the scientific literature .
When every major medical organization on the planet backs the conclusions and research I think I believe it rather than some Facebook contributer ..
OK , I really mean it this time !!! No mre on this from me !!!
Love and peaceful times to all on board .
