This will be a very short post, as I see no real good in arguing at length with the deeply deluded. This is just a succinct reminder of the truth so many refuse to confront now.
Judith Curry has a post on "What Are Scientists Marching For?". (There is going to be a march on Washington around April 22nd, basically in hysterical protest over the new President and what they so deludedly think he represents, along the lines of "anti-science".) My response:
They will be marching in defense of dogma, that is all--and specifically, false dogma (not science at all). They will also be marching in favor of unabashed tyranny over critics of their dogma (which they believe, religiously but falsely, to be science). This is all about defending what is in fact a general incompetence among today's scientists, the false paradigm that gave rise to that incompetence, and all the false theories--false speculative structures--they have built up in their minds (and in peer-reviewed papers, and books, and countless lectures), based upon that false paradigm.
Actually, I have let myself go on too long here. I meant only to say, "They will be marching in defense of dogma over good, honest reason," and leave it at that. But again, I have to immediately add, "and for the tyranny that is always needed to sustain false dogma."
Now look, I have said it twice. Words all over the place, and to what end? They WILL NOT listen. They have a million, a billion, a trillion times as many words, saying the opposite. How does a generation take stock, and unlearn a century and a half of false dogma and misdirected scientific effort? In the end, they must confront revolutionary new knowledge and a new, truer paradigm--the Great Design of the "gods"--that's how.

I have submitted the following comment to the American Thinker site, to an article on the "causes of scientific decline in American academia". The article imputes the decline to Leftist beliefs and actions.:
Left (versus Right) is just the top, political, layer. Underneath that is the atheist (versus spiritual believer) religious belief system. And under that, at bottom (in the context of science and scientists), is an undirected-evolution (versus deliberate design) paradigm (or fundamental, unquestioned assumption) directing scientific research. The underlying cause of scientific decline is the miseducation of scientists, ever since Darwin, that the world as we now observe it came about through undirected physical processes alone (with, in the case of living things, the addition of an all-powerful but basically undefined "natural selection", to supply the obviously necessary direction displayed by it all; note, in the case of non-living things--the world that sustains life--scientists don't even have a "natural selection" deity to "explain" its amazing construction and harmonious working order, of land and ocean, mountains and valleys, rivers, rock of all kinds and sizes--and thus uses--and above all life-nutrient soil).
At bottom, the problem is a failing scientific paradigm, increasingly unnoticed by scientists--pursuing their unquestioned, uniformitarian evolution paradigm--for the past 130 to 160 years. I call this paradigm--which covers the non-living world, in addition to the living--the extended Darwinian paradigm. I don't even know if I invented the term or not, as I have not seen it used by other scientists for as long as I remember (nor have I gone looking for it); it comes naturally out of recognizing that earth scientists--for example, geologists--assume, just as biologists and other life scientists do, that what they observe is the result of undirected physical processes alone. The same guiding assumption, in both the life and earth sciences--and false.
Other critics of evolution can only approach this tangentially, in the context of creationism or "Intelligent Design" theory. I am the only scientist in the world who can confront it head-on, without theory, with new, revolutionary knowledge, independent of any prior belief system known to modern man, gained through dispassionate research, discovery, and verification, to the highest scientific standards for certainty, along every line of study.

I have submitted the following response to the climate etc site of Dr. Judith Curry, who carries a post on "the Dansgaard-Oeschger cycle". The introduction states, "Dansgaard-Oeschger (D-O) events are the most dramatic and frequent abrupt climate change events in the geological record.":
Impressively detailed speculation, but wrong. The Earth's surface was re-formed, wholesale and late in geological history, to a great design:
"Challenge to Earth Scientists", and
"Challenge to Science II: Focus on Design".
In fact, the entire solar system was re-formed, and reoriented to follow the Earth's new (present) orbit:
"Challenge to Science III: The 'gods', the design, and man".
The continents were deliberately moved, shaped and oriented. Some were moved as late as 10,000 years ago, along paths that are today thought to be spreading ocean ridges. They are instead the sutured scars of past movement of landmasses like Atlantis/Greenland (just one of the most famous ancient mysteries, originating in the design, solved by my research):
"Atlantis At Last", and
The Earth's--and solar system's--new orbital orientation was effected c. 17,000 years ago (as mentioned in "Challenge to Science III", above link). Plato's "Timaeus" reported that the Egyptians dated the disappearance of Atlantis to 9600 BC, indicating the change to the present distribution of landmasses was performed over several thousand years' time, between roughly 20,000 and 10,000 years ago.
Modern geology (including paleoclimatology, e.g. ice core data) cannot be trusted any farther back in time than the end of that deliberate re-formation, by the 'gods', who were worshipped by ancient man worldwide. That worship directed the religions and religious obsessions of man for thousands of years, as observed in the perennially-popular "ancient mysteries", all of which hark back, in precise detail, to that single source, the deliberate world design.
The Fig. 18 in the above article notes that the periodicity in the DO cycle has less than 1% probability of being due to chance. Compare that to the probability of chance placement of the continents in their current, precisely-set form and distribution, which is on the order of 1 in one million million (1 in 1 trillion). What I have just informed you of is so far beyond the "certainty" of modern scientific speculations, like the article above, that to dismiss it is logically perverse, in the extreme. The great design makes practically all that current earth scientists think they know, immediately irrelevant to the truth, and useless to continue with or build upon. It literally sweeps away, effortlessly, the underlying assumption--no design involved--in both evolution and plate tectonics, the central theories of all the life and earth sciences. They are wrong; everything proceeding on the basis of their truth is wrong.

The Jo Nova site has a post on South Australia's energy infrastructure woes, and the comments put blame on all the usual suspects. The following is my response, as a competent scientist:
Underlying the lazy (still too well fed and entertained), politically polarized public, and their representatives, and the larger tyrannous agenda of the Insane Left, is the fundamental crisis:
A general scientific incompetence–not among the public, but among the “experts” themselves, across all specialties that intersect with the climate or atmosphere, and thus among all those who should have nipped this in the bud–brought about and maintains the insanity surrounding “global warming/climate change/energy infrastructure transformation”.
Back in October 2011, I posted the following comment on Judith Curry’s “Climate Etc” site:
“Judith Curry’s testimony: ‘It is now up to the political process (international, national, and local) to decide how to contend with the climate problem.’
That’s what is wrong with this [Curry's] blog site, in a nutshell.”
In other words, she failed (and continues to fail, despite her stand against the “consensus”) to see how wide and deep is the incompetence in the “climate’ science itself–although all of you here who see the society-wide strict adherence to the alarmist narrative–in all of our most trusted institutions–on a daily basis, and know it is nonsense, know better.
As I have also written for the last 6 years, 1) stop all “climate policies” immediately, and 2) take “climate” science away from the “climate scientists”, indeed, take it away from any scientist who believes any part of it. It is all false; it all has to be redone, from the bottom up (as far back as the Standard Atmosphere, which alone is good science).

I submitted the following comment on American Thinker, in response to other comments that were speculating about the "real evil" confronting the American people and the world now (on American Thinker, the common answer is "Democrats and the Left", and they are right, right now--but not necessarily for long):
I am an independent scientist, who has made a uniquely great--literally unprecedented in history--discovery that has allowed me to see the hardening and escalating confrontations of dogmatic thoughts and divisions of this time, the early 21st century, in a larger light than, basically, anyone else. Right now, we are confronted with what I call the Insane Left, but that is not the full extent of what is going on. I don't have all the answers--I know the heart of it, but not the myriad living connections, acting throughout history and even before, involved--but I know, as no one else on Earth does, that it is not limited to any particular group, or even groups, of people. It is not even a single world view, such as "globalist". It goes beyond any "conspiracy theory", beyond "Left" vs. "Right", and beyond any physical nexus. It involves the entire set of divisive dogmas held by mankind on Earth, and too-long nurtured as inviolate--religiously, unquestioningly held by each separate group, that makes of each such group a cult, when taken too far--and as such it is not even "evil", in its essence. It is instead a GENERAL TESTING of mankind. Unquestioned dogmas--and especially the worst of the worst FALSE dogmas--are generally ascendant over good honest reason in the world now, and we are all being shown the insanity of man adhering to dogma rather than to his god-given ability to reason. Such adherence is false at its heart--to the very freedom of man to THINK--no matter how many "honestly" believe a given dogma. For now, it is appropriate to confront the immediate danger of the Insane Left, but we will be faced with the insane radicalization of other dogmas--Islamic terrorism and expansion is another prime example now, just as an insane "climate science" is--as long as we fail to learn the real lesson being taught mankind. Too many have for too long abused their reason and the reason of others, and it is now a worldwide, full-blown epidemic.
As a scientist, I would add that what makes nurturing a dogma "too long" is, generally speaking, the uncovering of evidence definitely counter to that dogma. "Climate science" is well past that point, for example.

I submitted the following comment on American Thinker, to a post titled "The Catholic Church You Never Heard Of":
It is necessary to separate the personal morals espoused, from the dogmas insisted upon as being unquestionable, in a religion. This article seeks to defend the moral effect upon history of Catholicism.
But Catholic dogma is advanced here, in the comments, with no supporting evidence other than arguments from authority, such as that "it is widely believed" (that is, that the vast majority of "Catholic" churches, or sects believe); or that (for example) the Inquisition was somehow standard, "accepted" procedure at the time--that it was even "BENIGN", as one commenter here wrote, in capital letters. The innocent victims, such as Giordano Bruno, would beg to differ.
It is really pretty simple, though, if you're ready to lay down your dogma in favor of truly moral precepts, which of course Catholics commenting here show they are not willing to do (just like everyone does, of course, when they spout received dogma): You cannot call it "Christianity" if you worship "The Virgin"--that's ancient goddess worship, if you look far enough back in history, rather than just obsess about early Catholic sources, which operate in their own pagan-denying but pagan-promulgating, pagan-propagating bubble (the Pope is really nothing but a God-King, ruling "by Divine Right", and to be believed as such, "ex cathedra", as one commenter admitted). The dogmas in the Catholic Church--not "The Church", Catholics--are older than Catholicism, and you don't seem to know that, and, considering your apparent devotion to ancient history, are no doubt blocking from your own minds, in defense of your dogma.
All of today's religions still contain dogmas--good and bad, encompassing truth only in metaphorical, "mythical" form, and therefore misleading lies--from the first religion, before the beginning of history. Catholics are not alone in this, and should not be singled out for it. The millennia-long "war" between the Goddess and the patriarchal Gods, and later God, who followed Her in the religious development of Man--a war still alive in the Catholic Virgin worship--goes back to the very beginning of religious belief in pre-history, as it was the storied overturning of the Goddess by the patriarchal "gods" that marked the end of the "golden age", universally remembered in the earliest "myths" worldwide. The Titans overthrown by the "new generation" of Zeus were, before the patriarchal rewrite of ancient history, led by the White Goddess of many names, in many lands around the world: Eurynome, Venus, Cerridwen, Aphrodite, Astarte, Isis, Ereshkigal, Pele, Izanami, Atse Estsan (Navajo), ...virtually every goddess in myth is but another name, or title, in just another story, of the One Goddess.
The ancients worldwide, called pagans by the Catholic Church, LOVED their Goddess, beyond the ability of any new dogma to discard her. That is why the early Church--and it will always be "the early Church", or more correctly the Roman Catholic Church, not "the Church", to any but Catholic cult believers themselves--brought the Virgin into their midst, into the very center in fact (virtually as a goddess, The Goddess, in fact).
Just as the pagan "corn god" or other-named "agricultural" god, was sacrificed each year (like Jesus was said to be) at the winter solstice (that's Christmastime, to modern, still-pagan Christians), only to "rise again" at the time of the spring equinox (just as the Sun-God of old--and later, the son of the Sun-God--did, and Jesus the "Son of God" did, and as the physical Sun itself actually does, every year, in rising above the celestial equator just at that time), so the "fertility goddess" suffered her various mythical travails and lost her virginity(!), and subsequently gave birth (re-birth) to the Son of God (also of many names) each year, only to renew that virginity each spring, in token to all that new life springing forth at that same beginning of spring, and to her "eternal" nature--thus "ever-renewed", in her virginity, herself, and ever-renewing of the life on Earth.
The truth behind all the "sacrifice of the Son of God" stories, long before and up to the time of Jesus of Nazareth, and sacred tales that "He rose again", is that they are all variations on a religious mnemonic for the actual yearly passage of the Sun, as it makes a circuit of the starry sky, or celestial sphere, as seen by earthbound mankind--above the celestial equator for six months, then crossing to below the celestial equator for six months, with the crossing points defined as the vernal, or "spring" equinox (when it rises, or "springs", above the celestial equator), and the autumnal, or "fall", equinox (when it--wait for it--"falls" below the celestial equator).
I am the only scientist in the world who knows, for a fact, WHY the Sun's motion was so religiously enshrined, worldwide, before the very beginning of known human history, before the first human religion was in fact invented. It is the same reason--the same objective, physical origin--for the fact of all the "Creation" myths, including that told in Genesis. Because all of it--all the precise construction and working mechanism of it--was in fact deliberately imposed. It was not "Creation", but a re-formation, and a real 'overturning" of an older world (and solar system) order. But later religions TAUGHT it as "the Creation".
This new knowledge will usher in a new paradigm, in both science and religion. It is a crucial milestone in human knowledge. And only the many divisive dogmas, still going strong today, are blocking its revelation and new intellectual and spiritual honesty. When new truth becomes known, the path forward necessarily becomes "straight and narrow". The way has suddenly become very straight and very narrow, that will not allow mankind's unquestioned dogmas--whether the oldest religious ones, or the newest "scientific" ones--the free rein they have had up to now.
A few readers here may note I emphasized the historical passage from "gods-driven" ancient religions to later, morals-teaching religion, in the recent post, "Religion, Dogma, and the Ancient 'Gods'".

The tallbloke site has another post on "Advanced Geometry Used By Prehistoric Architects", in the U.S. Southwest in this instance, with the "Pueblo Indians" of c. 1200 AD. Their buildings incorporated equilateral triangles, 45° and other "Pythagorean", or right, triangles, and the "golden rectangle" (whose longer side is 1.618 times as long as the shorter side). The post begins, "Another one to add to the ‘how and why did they do that?’ list of ancient sites. Years of research lie ahead." My response:
I have already done the years of research; I have already found the answer, 20 years ago now.
Equilateral triangles, right triangles (including the 45°), and the "golden rectangle" (this last is the proper clue to consider, to the real mystery) -- These are indeed easy to construct (the golden rectangle can be gotten from the 2:1 rectangle and its diagonal); all that is really required is to have the idea of each one, and an accurate method of construction is almost child's play. I would think the building of well-constructed walls, which has been obvious from the time the Pueblo buildings were first known, is harder. The "hardest" geometrical element would be the right angle, and the idea of constructing the perpendicular bisector of a line solves that (and anyone who chooses even as a child to devote himself to angular constructions could reinvent that wheel for himself, shortly after he realized he could use a cord to mark off distances accurately). Of course, the architects would have to have been more than just primitive hunter-gatherers, at some time prior to the building, and had the leisure time to consider such things; but again, we have known this all along for those people. In other words, they were CIVILIZED, in a thoroughly modern sense, as shown by their knowledge of geometric shapes and their competent building with same.
These were built, they say, c. 1200 AD. Compare that with the much more advanced Greeks and Euclid (who DID have writing), c. 300 BC. And don't say they can't be compared, as all I am saying is that the Greeks of 300 BC were not more innately intelligent than the Pueblo "Indians" of 1200 AD. Indeed, we absolutely know, not only from the written works of various "ancient" peoples, but the creative "myths" of all ancient peoples (with many ideas and precise details in common), that they had minds as good as ours today, when they weren't obsessed with bloody religious dogmas, long inherited.
The only real clue to the greater mystery--why should peoples, worldwide, have thought of these precise shapes at all--is the golden rectangle, which by itself shows that peoples on opposite sides of the world had that same idea, and expressed it. That proves what I said in the last paragraph, that the people of 300 BC can and should be compared with those 1500 years later, as far as their geometrical imaginations went. Why the golden rectangle?
But you have been asking that question, not only about the ancient peoples, but about the solar system, for some time now (and your forebears have done the same, for centuries, as the various CIVILIZATIONS of the past have re-emerged from exploration of the world).
And as I have told you before, the amazing answer is that it goes back to a common inheritance, of a great design at the heart of ancient peoples' imaginations and religious beliefs. And even that idea has been speculated on, long before this.
But no one, before me, has discovered THE great design, which is not speculative at all, but a proven fact (by me and me alone).
The golden ratio is the mark of that great design, which encompasses both the Earth and all the life on it (that ratio is present in the DNA molecule itself), AND the entire solar system.
That great design--I call it "The Great Design of the 'gods' "--is the next scientific paradigm, replacing the "undirected evolution" paradigm so vehemently defended today.
And that is why you also cannot trust today's theories, insofar as they are based on the false assumptions underlying the undirected evolution paradigm. Everything was CONSTRUCTED (even the reproductive machinery of life); it didn't simply "EVOLVE" into what we observe today.
