Mainstream Science: A Polluted Crowded Stream of Quacks and Cracked Pots

July 18, 2010 12 comments

Mainstream scientists (macro-evolution-believing scientists) are blind and dumb in many ways and in many ways promote an anti-science, for example, many of them discourage people from making anti-gravity starships cheaply. Michio Kaku is such a scientist as is one he discussed on a a Coast to Coast AM show a few months ago, Holger Bech Nielsen, of the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, whom he said was his friend on that same show, and concerning his claim that nature was (intelligently) preventing the Large Hadron Collider from working, sometimes said crazy things like that. And notice on the linked article that Niels promotes the pagan idea of “luck”, which isn’t scientific at all. I wondered long before the show if this mainstream scientist was joking, but Michio with his statement, and no one saying that this scientist was joking, confirmed that he seriously believed nature (meaning every physical thing in the universe as a whole, except spiritual things, which would include spirits and information) had intelligence (which is a spiritual thing) could, he implied, use some brain or brains somewhere and other parts of itself to prevent the LHC from working. If you didn’t notice, to say say that nature can think or have intent without intelligence, is a contradiction. Nothing can’t think without intelligence, and intelligence requires another spiritual thing to exist: a mind.

I also listened to Michio on Coast to Coast AM yesterday, being interviewed poorly and annoylingly by Art Bell, a moron mostly, on civilization classifications: a “type 0″ vs type 1, 2, 3 and 4 civilizations. Michio was being an idiot by claiming that civilizations that could make wormholes/stargates wouldn’t need starships and used the Borg and Stargate (the Ancients in Stargate?) as examples of types of civilizations that didn’t need starships. Is he a massive moron? How did he miss that the Borg travel in starships as did the Enterprise and Voyager using quantum tunneling and the Defiant and other ships through the artificial wormhole near the DS9 space station? What idiot thinks that just because you can make a wormhole that you won’t need an artificial environment to protect yourself from unknown conditions? What is the evidence that if you can make a wormhole, or time travel that you will instantly be able to survive or live comfortably in whatever environment is on the other side? What does one have to do with the other? And what’s his excuse for spreading such stupidity when the very sci-shows he cited made it obvious as to why starships (and spacesuits) would still be necessary? Michio is implying that if you can make a wormhole you’ll be God basically, which is making an idol of wormhole technology and/or whoever builds them – bizarre. It’s common sense from the experience we have that just because you have an advanced technology doesn’t mean you won’t need a less advanced technology as a back up or an alternative one as a back up or to make the advanced technology more easy to use. According to Michio, along with wormhole technology would come technology that would be able to be integrated into our bodies that would automatically make it so we could withstand any environment. I’m making an educated guess, that according to Michio, if you can make a wormhole, you will have mobile computer or computers and technology of some kind, like nano-robots or some robot that can manipulate matter and energy in any way, that can instantly or very quickly come up with technology and materials and energy to change your body or make a suit for it (or both) that can allow it to live in any environment with your brain still being able to work decently. But what is the evidence for that? It’s an assumption, and assuming is for idiots. Stargate and Star Trek made is easy to see why that even with wormhole technology you would still need artificial environments, both suits and ships, to survive and live comfortably: because people that have it or who are using it aren’t automatically technologically advanced enough to instantly survive and live comfortably wherever and whenever and don’t know the future perfectly. On both shows, it was shown that even with the ability to time travel, life was still unpredictable, and there were already well-known books out that made it clear why time travel wasn’t a solve-it-all technology, for example one book introduced the butterfly effect, which is a small indirect effect made in the past from a change to the past that causes a great change in the future.

Art asked Michio if he thought Genesis (the first book of the Bible, the first parts of Genesis roughly 6000 years old) was compatible with science, and Michio acknowledged that it was, saying (in a way) that it was scientific (I’d bet Michio read some of the books on the history of Christianity listed at http://bit.ly/truthstore or had heard from me, maybe indirectly that The Book of Judges teaches the scientific method), but without evidence, referred to it as “myths”. Michio again referred to Einstein as he usually does to give his opinion about God’s role in the creation of the universe, but this time he was much more bold, and said that many scientists could see beauty in the laws of the universe and that the beauty of various mathematical formulas were so beautiful to him, that he was almost brought to tears over them, as evidence that the universe wasn’t an accident. In other words: the beauty of the information in the universe is evidence of a creative act, and a creative act is evidence of intelligence, and this is just what the Bible, supposed myths according to scientists like Michio, said, thousands of years ago, more than once:

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor are there words; their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, and he comes forth as a bridegroom from his canopy; he rejoices as a strong man to run a race, going forth from the end of the heavens, and its course is to their ends. And there is nothing hid from its heat. The Law of Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise. – Psalm 19:1-7 (Notice that after the handiwork descriptions, that God’s Law’s are mentioned?

“For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because the thing which may be known of God is clearly revealed within them, for God revealed it to them. For the unseen things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being realized by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, for them to be without excuse. Because, knowing God, they did not glorify Him as God, neither were thankful. But they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.” – Romans 1:18-1:23

Does Michio also find the main laws in the Bible, like the “ten (twelve) commandments” and the two highest, beautiful? If not, why?

And who is a great nation whose statutes and judgments are so righteous as all this Law which I set before you today?:

1) I am Jehovah your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods besides Me.

2) You shall not make a graven image for you, any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or in the earth beneath, or in the waters beneath the earth.

3) You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them. For I Jehovah your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, and doing mercy to thousands of those who love Me and keep My commandments.

4) You shall not take the name of Jehovah your God in vain, for Jehovah will not acquit the one who takes His name in vain.

5) Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as Jehovah your God has commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day shall be the sabbath of Jehovah your God. In it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your mule, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger inside your gates, so that your manservant and your maidservant may rest like yourself. And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and Jehovah your God brought you out from there with a mighty hand and with a stretched-out arm. Therefore Jehovah your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day.

7) Honor your father and your mother, as Jehovah your God has commanded you, so that your days may be made longer, and that it may go well with you in the land which Jehovah your God gives you.

8) You shall not murder,

9) and you shall not commit adultery,

10) and you shall not steal,

11) and you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor,

12) and you shall not lust after your neighbor’s wife, nor shall you crave your neighbor’s house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is your neighbor’s.

Oh that there were such a heart in them that they would fear Me and keep all My commandments always, so that it might be well with them and with their sons forever! – Deuteronomy 4:8, 5:6-21, 29

“hearing that [Jesus] had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees were gathered together. Then one of them, a lawyer, asked, tempting Him, and saying, ‘Master, which is the great commandment in the Law?’ Jesus said to him, ‘”You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” That is the first and great commandment and the second is like it, ‘”You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”‘ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” – Matthew 22:35-40

It’s no surprise to me that the “mainstream” is the bad and heavily polluted stream (that has on its tail many millions of magic-believing pagans pandering to it) in contrast to the stream less traveled steam of Christ:

“Go in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in through it because narrow is the gate and constricted is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” – Matthew 7:13-15

It’s good that Michio, a very intelligent person and prestigious scientist, acknowledges the value of the Bible, even seeing that it is scientific (though I’m not sure why he said that), but sad that he assumes it is myths and shamefully just referred to the whole thing as myth when most archaeologists of the Bible know that at least half of it is fact, even the atheists of the Jesus Seminar acknowledge that half of it is historical fact. Michio should stop obsessing on himself and physics so that he can learn the greater truths.

What Does Michio Kaku Believe and Can He Be Believed?

According to Michio Kaku, about 30% of scientists (polled since WWII) are religious and believe in God. He also believes that the Bible is scientific (Coast to Coast AM interview), good. Some quotes from him:

What was God thinking when the universe was created? That’s where we are going with this thing [the super collider]. … The universe… is quite beautiful… it could have been random… it could have been horrible… that’s what Einstein believed. 11:51-11:52 P.M., 1/29/2010, Coast to Coast A.M.. his reply to the host Art Bell

“God throws dice, what can I say?”- Michio Kaku, 12:41 P.M., 1/29/2010, Coast to Coast A.M.

When scientists use the word God, they usually mean the God of Order. For example, one of the most important revelations in Einstein’s early childhood took place when he read his first books on science. He immediately realized that most of what he had been taught about religion could not possibly be true. Throughout his career, however, he clung to the belief that a mysterious, divine Order existed in the universe. His life’s calling, he would say, was to ferret out his thoughts, to determine whether he had any choice in creating the universe. Einstein repeatedly referred to this God in his writings, fondly calling him “the Old Man.” When stumped with an intractable mathematical problem, he would often say, “God is subtle, but not malicious. – Hyperspace : A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension, Page: 331

They [science and religion] can be in harmony, but only if rational people on both sides engage in honest debate. Einstein believed in two types of Gods, for example. He did not believe in a personal God, or a God of intervention. He did not believe that God answered our prayers. But he did believe that there was a God of Spinoza. This is the God of Harmony. He said we are like children entering a huge library for the first time, not knowing how to read the thousands of books that are beyond our understanding. Many scientists, therefore, might say that they believe in a God of harmony. For example, scientists believe in a Big Bang that started the universe. But then we have to ask what happened before the Big Bang (more on that later). Then we have to ask where the laws of physics came from. Personally, I think that the laws of physics are the only ones possible, that all other laws are mathematically inconsistent. Thus, God probably had no choice in creating the universe, as Einstein believed. – Kaku’s response in a chatroom to the user FifthDream, who asked him, “Dr. Kaku, what is your opinion on science and religion? Are the two in opposition or can there be harmony?”, 2003

To Michio: you’re always speaking behind Einstein when it comes to whether or not you believe in the God of the Bible or not, or a God who cares about his creation or ever intervenes or whether or not he predestined what will be. Please don’t do this, just say what you believe. Are you afraid of being wrong or ridiculed or discriminated against by the majority of so called “mainstream scientists”? People will ridicule you too, and probably have, for not speaking plainly. Though Jesus often spoke in riddles (and often only implied things) he gave explanations for much of what he said. And if he didn’t, other parts of the Bible usually explain, but where is the information to let us know what you believe about God? Talk about yourself for once, not Einstein, who’s Relativity Theory was wrong.

Update: 2/6/2011 10:20 AM:

Seeing that many people are still looking at this post since I posted it, I decided to watch an uploaded video on Youtube, a segment of a BBC documentary that a rude commenter had pointed out to me last year, but which out of resentment I ignored for a while. But I watched it a few minutes ago and transcribed the parts most relevant to this post:

Michio: “I imagine that eternal life was a powerful incentive for people who worshiped here (Well’s Cathedral). … The problem today though, is tIhat many of us is more skeptical. To get everlasting life in heaven, you have to trust that heaven actually exists. Speaking as a scientist, I think that there is a problem with regards to the afterlife and religious immortality, and that is there’s no proof that it exists. Remarkable claims require remarkable proof. But maybe, you don’t need proof. Well, I do.” – Micho Kaku, BBC Video: There Here After. “

Later in the video, Michio tours the Grand Canyon with some old male geologist who claimed that “they” (who?) said that it took the stream (the one that usually goes through the Grand Canyon) “5 million years” to carve it out. Michio, after leaving him then said as a wide screen shot of the canyon was being shown, “Unimaginable eons of time are needed for water to carve out valleys.”

How in the world did he miss that the Bible says a worldwide disaster occurred which included it being completely flooded? Not only that, why didn’t he mention floods at all???????? Don’t floods also carve out things and make rapid changes? Doesn’t a constant downpour of rain erode certain hills and mountains and cliffs which have countless times caused devastating mudslides? What a big oversight. Then I found from a video to the side of that one, on Youtube, what after transcribing, was an interview from a beautiful woman named Dr. Kiki:

Dr. Kiki: “…those big questions, theoretical physicists seem to come up those, throughout their entire careers”

Michio: “That’s why I became a theoretical physicist. I wanted to bump up against those big questions.”

Dr. Kiki: “…constantly.”

Michio: “…and so, I mean that’s another question I was really interested in, is that.

Dr. Kiki: “I’ve heard that the majority of, theoretical physicists, are, incredibly spiritual, and, have, a great appreciation for, the concept of consciousness and the soul and the universe and where it came from because these are the questions which they’re constantly, asking. Um, for yourself, how do you, how do you, what’s your view on, life, and, you know, where is it, what are you doing when you teleport. life, if we ever get to that point.”

Michio: “Uh well if I knew the answer to, to life I would have inside track up there (he laughs while motioning with his hand with a thumbs up to Heaven). Uh but let me tell you how we, we, we physicists view things, right. For example, um, Einstein was asked the big question, ‘Is there a God is there a meaning to everything?’ right?”

Dr. Kiki: “Right.”

Michio: “And here’s how Einstein answered the question: He said there really are two kinds of God’s, we have to be very scientific, we have to dih- define what you mean by, ‘God’. If God is the God of intervention, the personal God, the God of prayer, the God that parts the waters, then he had a hard time believing in that, would God listen to all our prayers for, a bicycle for Christmas, and, smite the Philistines for me please (points in front of him as if pointing to them). He didn’t think so, however he believed in the God of order, harmony, beauty, simplicity and elegance; the God of Spinoza. That’s the God that he believed in, because he thought the universe was so gorgeous. It didn’t have to be that way, it could have been chaotic, it could have been ugly, messy. But here we have the fact that all the equations of physics, can be placed on a simple sheet of paper.”

Dr. Kiki: “Right.”

Michio: “Einsteins equation is only, one inch long (makes a inch length with his index finger and thumb of his right hand).”

Dr. Kiki: “Mmmm hmmm.”

Michio: “And the quantum theory is about a yard long(,) but you can squeeze it, on, to, uh, a sheet of paper (the intervew and Michio laugh).”

Dr. Kiki: “Right(,) with a small enough font.”

Michio: “Right. And with string theory you can even put those equations together. And string theory can be, squeezed into an equation one inch long (makes the inch length with his right hand again).”

Dr. Kiki: “Hmm. (with an upward tone).”

Michio: “And that equation by the way is my equation (laughs a little and widens his eyes), that’s string field(?) theory.

Dr. Kiki: “Nice.”

Michio: “That’s my contribution.”

Dr. Kiki: “Right.”

Michio: “But we wanna know, well where did that equation come from, you know? This is what Einstein asked, uh, ‘Did God have a choiccce. Was there any choice in building a universe.’ When he woke up in the morning he would say(,) he would say, ‘I’mwanna create a universe(,) I’m gonna be God today. What kind of universe would I create.'” Then Michio quickly said, “This is how he (Einstein) created much of his theories.”

Note: The interview was casual, Michio was confident, barely nervous-sounding if at all, didn’t have perhaps but a hint of boastfulness which at most was when he credited himself with the invention of string field theory, and it was fast-paced.

After typing this up I looked to see when this interview had been made, and at http://www.twis.org/2010/05/14/462 found this comment (which seems to confirm that Michio said “field” where I put the question mark):

Kaku, as usual, is being dishonest when he takes credit for contributing the equation for string field theory!

Light-cone string field theories were introduced by Stanley Mandelstam and developed by Mandelstam, Michael Green, John Schwarz and Lars Brink. An explicit description of the second-quantization of the light-cone string was given by Michio Kaku and Keiji Kikkawa. (From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_field_theory).

I didn’t find out when the Kiki interview was made, but the interview on Youtube which I transcribed, above, was uploaded in April, 2009.

Here’s a video on Youtube in which Michio Kaku says that those who are opposed to the NWO are terrorists.
