Modern Science

Counter-Cut

The other day I happened upon an article about global warming entitled, “Mathematician Exposes Global Warming Study Inflating Temp Rise by 600%.”  This is not news.  Frankly, I’ve grown accustomed to scientists simply creating facts out of thin air to “prove” global warming.  So I ignored it.

Then I ran across another article which claimed “’Mini Ice Age’ Looms As NASA Scientist Warns Lack Of Sunspots Could Bring Record Cold.”  That caught my attention, because back in 2012 I had examined the matter and concluded that we should be entering a period of global cooling rather than global warming.  

What really caught my eye in this particular article was the solar activity graphs for the past 30 years and for the past 400 years:  There is a definite downward trend in sunspot activity, and right now we are in the steep decline region of the cycle’s tail.  Since sunspot activity and global temperatures are related because the sun is our primary source of heat, we are due for serious cooling – not warming.  Furthermore NASA’s TIMED satellite confirms that the thermosphere around the planet is cooling and shrinking rapidly.

Lastly, I ran across another article entitled, “Giant meteor crater found under Greenland ice cap”, which has nothing to do with global warming and cooling.  It’s a fascinating article from NASA.  But the following statement grabbed my attention:

“the Hiawatha Crater was likely formed less than three million years ago and possibly as little as 12,000 years ago”

Wait a minute!  Some time between 3,000,000 and 12,000 years ago?  Another way of saying that is 1,500,000 ±1,500,000 years ago.  Or 1,500,000 years ago with an accuracy of ± 100%!  That’s simply a WAG (Wild A** Guess) masquerading as science!

Sadly, this is the state of our modern science.  Scientists used to pursue accuracy and truthfulness.  Now scientists are creating fudge factors that introduce 600% errors just to prove a political point.

And other scientists present WAGs as scientific conclusions!  Even NASA has been infected by the disease.  Can you imagine trying to land a man on the moon using rocket engines that have a predictable reliability of ±100%? Would you even consider buying a car that has an estimated life of 5 years ±100%  (0 – 10 years)?  I certainly wouldn’t.

Science used to be a discipline that searched for truth.  Scientists used to pursue excellence and accuracy, no matter where their findings led them. 

No more. We cannot depend on anything scientists try to sell us because I fear it has become little more than a search for the biggest grant, and their “conclusions” have become little more than fish tale whoppers.

Origin of our Numerals

February 28, 2013 Leave a comment

Counter-CutYou may have received an internet email purporting to describe a logical basis for the way our numbers are written.  It provides a compelling case demonstrating that our numerals are based on the number of angles in each numeral.  Sometimes the information is provided in an impressive PowerPoint presentation.

Nevertheless the information is incorrect, no matter how compelling it may seem and how well it’s presented.
See some of the articles below, demonstrating the evolution of our current numbers over hundreds of years through many different cultures:

Junk DNA

September 17, 2012 1 comment

The discovery of DNA revolutionized biology.  There was a recent spate of articles talking about the significance of “junk” DNA.  You might be interested in hearing about it.

According to some scientists only about 20% of our DNA contains meaningful genetic information; the rest is “junk.”[1]  We know “junk” DNA exists, but don’t exactly know why.  Therefore many argue that the existence of this “junk” DNA proves the validity of random evolutionary theory.  The argument goes something as follows[2]: Read more…

Climate Change Conclusion

September 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Counter-CutResearching the climate change issue has been an interesting experience, not only from the scientific perspective but also from the spiritual perspective because it confronted me with a number of unanswered questions regarding  some very fundamental issues.  I’d like to share those issues with you, but will not attempt to answer them at this time.  I may, however, come back to them at a later time.

Climate Change Examined

August 31, 2012 Leave a comment

Counter-CutMuch has been said and written about global warming.  When doubt was cast on the accuracy and validity of the global warming theory, it was renamed “climate change.”  I must admit that anybody who believes there is no such thing as “climate change” is a fool.  Clearly climate, or weather, is not the same year to year or age to age.  But does that necessarily support the hypothesis that man-made activity is bad for the climate?  I decided to examine the question a little more deeply.

Climate Change

Counter-CutI used to be a strong believer in global warming, but no more.  I think it’s just normal weather cycles in a lot of hot air:

This is just one of many charts depicting global cooling, instead of global warming.  That’s why “climate change” is the new banner.

This one, on the other hand claims it’s getting warmer, and even concludes that the warming is man-made.

This one claims it’s getting cooler.

Here you’ll find a number of images supporting whatever your opinion.

This one actually correlates our “national debt to GDP ratio” and “global temperature changes”!  So let’s eliminate the national debt and bring on the cooling.

What’s going on here?  The next essay will examine the situation in more depth and attempt to discern the truth.
