This Age of Scientific Dogmatism

I have made two comments to an American Thinker article, "The Left's Vicious Intolerance In Science".

I'll just say here that arguing about science is not science. I am a scientist, by the way--in fact, THE scientist, who has made the greatest discovery in history--directly impacting every field of human inquiry--which few in our time, on either the Left or the Right--or the middle, for that matter--have shown themselves willing to respectfully consider. No surprise there, it has been ever thus; ask Galileo (and I sometimes call myself the Galileo of this time). There is so much incompetence, all around, even in this "advanced", "thoroughly modern" age, because we are living in a climactic time, of ascendance of false, divisive dogma over good, honest reason.

Know therefore, that you and all around you are being tested, with the consequences of such long-nurtured dogma, even as new, inevitably liberating knowledge will--in the next few generations if not this one--change what for you have been all-too-comfortable certainties, about what is and is not true science.


Scientific consensus notably hardened into dogmatic, religiously-held beliefs in then currently fashionable theories, across many fields, around 1970-1980. It has not been true science since that time, and for many, long before (as far back as Darwin, for the more devout followers of undirected evolution, who have made careers out of refusing to consider all the evidence against it). As a scientist, I never blamed that obscene (to this scientist) hardening of scientific thought on the Left--but they have latched on to the dogmatic certainty, the belief in "the Consensus", in many fields, not just in science (the "civil-rights" movement for Blacks, with its defining of "racism" as White racism, is another outstanding example). And it has made them insane now, under the likes of Obama. They have built their intended legacy on untruths, and the consequences will be devastating.
