Dictyostelium Discoideum

Poorly Interpreted Science

I have no problem with science.  I have a problem with poorly done and poorly interpreted science.  Case is point:

In Amoeba World, Cheating Doesn’t Pay

The above is an article in ScienceDaily written in 2009 discussing resistance against cheaters in the amazing microbe species known as Dictyostelium Discoideum.

However, evolutionists have a problem with any type of altruistic sacrifice or group selectivity, so instead of admitting that they don’t know or understand something, you get a faction of scientists that prefer to try to “experiment away” the truth:

Cheating, and getting away with it: Works for amoeba

The above link is an article from the same magazine published in 2013.  The interpretation is reversed now.  Now cheating works for amoeba.  But if you actually read the article, you discover that cheating worked only in their lab experiment.  The article admits that this does NOT actually occur in nature.  So basically a single lab experiment where a few variables are manipulated over a few weeks trumps nature where all variables of nature are taken into account over million of years?  And this one lab experiment grants enough authority to allow these scientists to tell nature how her amoebas really work (and redefine cosmic laws related to justice, ethics, and karma)?

This is why Albert Einstein says “few are the men who can see with their eyes.”  LOOK at nature.  Look AND OBSERVE what is happening.  Don’t dogmatically go along with the easiest theories, get upset when nature doesn’t follow them and then create experiments with the bias intent of disproving our natural observations of mother nature herself.  The point of science is too look at nature and find good explanations for natural phenomenon, not ignore nature or tell nature what it’s supposed to be just because it makes your math easier.

Darwin got it right all along.  He postulated that moral men might not do any better than immoral men but that tribes of moral men would certainly “have an immense advantage” over fractious bands of pirates.  When people can see and understand this statement they will understand what group selection means and why it occurs in nature.  It’s up to science to find a mechanism for why this is true or why it is the case;- not explain away the truth.

Or as Miss Dickinson might say: “Consult your eye!”

You’ll know it—as you know ’tis Noon—
By Glory—
As you do the Sun—
By Glory—
As you will in Heaven—
Know God the Father—and the Son.

By intuition, Mightiest Things
Assert themselves—and not by terms—
“I’m Midnight”—need the Midnight say—
“I’m Sunrise”—Need the Majesty?

Omnipotence—had not a Tongue—
His listp—is Lightning—and the Sun—
His Conversation—with the Sea—
“How shall you know”?
Consult your Eye! 

-Emily Dickinson


The Question is “Why?”

All untruth will lead to greater harm in the end.

People should question the leaders of a country. But when Joe Biden tells this to the people of China, is he saying it to try to make the world a better place or is he saying it to create instability in a rival country?

When Sharon Stone argues for independence for the Tibetan people; does she do it because she cares about people or because she is jumping on the bandwagon of liberal Hollywood fads?

So with this new exuberance for gay rights sparked by the Sochi Olympics, it’s hard not to be skeptical over the genuine sincerity of this enormous and sudden liberal push in the Western media in support of gay rights. The problem is that those who are sincerely in support of such are done an injustice by various media outlets that are merely looking for an easy target. Any chance to paint Russia or China as wicked regimes (even if true) is exploited relentlessly by media outlets. Western media loves the tactic of flaunting the “rights” provided by the West denied by other countries.

However, insincerity always backfires in the long run. Countries like Russia, resentful of such exploitative tactics by the West, will merely become more resistant to change since any concession will now feel like capitulation to insincere Western forces.

The solution to the problem is to not let the artifice diminish the genuine support. Sincere activists should continue to support human rights; but with AWARENESS of the media’s flair for sensationalism and their device of creating more conflict than which genuinely exists just to attract (as well as distract) audiences.
