Science is not harmed until those loonies gain political power. Never.

OK, that happened in the US. :twisted:

Good luck for us all.

Gott mit uns.

“Science” may not be harmed but society is.
Those idiots may teach their children this.
Or they may simply encourage them to disregard what their science teachers teach them in school.

Someone already referred to the potential repercussions of this.
AIDS/HIV was (and still may) be out of control in parts of the world (Africa and possibly India) due to people not following medical (scientific) advice to use condoms, when instead (as referred to already) to preventative steps such as screwing virgins or albinos. That didn’t cure anything and instead spread the illness even further.

I agree. Oddly this is the second time today I have heard that fatuous phrase "Decolonizing education." Regrettably, my baccalaureate alma mater hired an archaeologist who is an enthusiastic Critical Race Theory zealot and is hosting a conference on decolonizing education.

Fucking lunatics is ALL that they are. 100% nuts.


Sweet baby raptor jesus, the schools are still stacking academia with these fucking nitwit propagandists.

Time to flush these parasites out of the system. I hope people start hitting the schools in the pocketbook. They need a reality check, anyway, with their cash extorting gatekeeper roles.

Mentalists.



So she wants people to "decolonize" and look at things from another perspective.

To me it sounds as if she wants to push the concept that there were people in other (non-Western) parts of the world that came to some of the same scientific conclusions that Western scientists did (perhaps even before they did).

On its face, I don't have a problem with this.
If she thinks that there were scientists in Africa or elsewhere that came up with a theory on gravity (or something else) before Newton did, then provide us with proof of that. Where are that scientists books or writings which spelled out their theories?
If they exist, then present or cite them. People can then examine them and have a discussion over who came up with them first.

But if she wants to push this and cannot provide proof evidence of such, then she needs to go back and dig harder. Come back when you have some proof.

At 3:40 she says 'Western knowledge is pathetic to say the least'.
Really?

She is sitting in a classroom powered by electricity (Edison, Tesla or Westinghouse).
The room is illuminated by the light bulb (Edison).

She is being filmed on a movie camera (Brothers Auguste and Louis Lumière, Edison and others).

The video is being transmitted over the internet (Al Gore ;-) )

Yup, Western knowledge is truly pathetic. :roll:
