I’ve always questioned my teachers. I always liked science, but had many problems with what I was being taught. Only now am I understanding why. It is becoming clear that science is based on a new beLIEf system, and is buttressed by propaganda of the most intense kind to fabricate consensus and imply FACT. If there were or are any real facts, then it’s hard to find which are which buried under the massive piles of lies and deceptions — similar to 220;news”.
Here is a case in point. This is how almost all “news” originates now: from a press release. PR. PROPAGANDA. The thrust of it is that only 74% (11) beLIEve in the Copernicun THEORY that the earth revolves around the sun. A theory is everyone’s best guess – but it’s not FACT.
I doubt there was any survey by anybody. If you read carefully, no faculty member is listed as conducting the study, only one is listed as reviewing the data, and he’s from the PROPAGANDA department.
Please remember that the media is a weapon being used against you. Most is military propaganda used to shape your world view and thoughts.
Even liar for hire Dan Rather mentioned recently that not 6 but 4 companies control the majority of the world’s media.
That is an awesome concentration of power that no individual, corporation, government or alliance can defeat.
Only a few disparate fakeologist minds will be spared. Enjoy your mental freedom while you can.
Note all our favorite numbers in this press release.
While most Americans could be a bit more knowledgeable in the ways of science, a majority are interested in hearing about the latest scientific breakthroughs and think highly of scientists.
This is according to a survey of more than 2,200 people conducted by the National Science Foundation, one that is conducted every two years and is part of a report – Science and Engineering Indicators – that the National Science Board provides to the president and Congress.
A Michigan State University faculty member served as lead author for the chapter in the report that covers public perceptions of science. John Besley, an associate professor in MSU’s Department of Advertising and Public Relations, reviewed the data, as well as similar surveys from around the world, and highlighted key findings on Feb. 14 during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
According to the survey, more than 90 percent of Americans think scientists are “helping to solve challenging problems” and are “dedicated people who work for the good of humanity.”
“It’s important for Americans to maintain a high regard for science and scientists,” said Besley, who also is the Ellis N. Brandt Chair in Public Relations. “It can help ensure funding and help attract future scientists.”
Unfortunately, Americans still have a tough time answering some basic science questions. Out of a total of nine questions that covered the physical and biological sciences, the average score was 6.5 correct answers.
For example, only 74 percent of those queried knew that the Earth revolved around the sun, while fewer than half (48 percent) knew that human beings developed from earlier species of animals.
