    Default Wikipedia a parable for our times

    Dr. Malcolm Kendrick
    18th December 2019

    As readers of this blog know I was obliterated from Wikipedia recently. ...To be perfectly frank, the only time I knew I was on Wikipedia was when someone told me I was going to be removed. So it hasn’t caused great psychological trauma.

    ...My removal from Wikipedia is nothing. My removal from Wikipedia is everything. Not because it is me, but because of what it represents. Not to beat about the bush, there is a war going on out there between scientific enlightenment, and the forces of darkness.

    You think that is too dramatic? Well, this is what Richard Horton – editor of the Lancet for many years – has to say about the current state of medical science.
    ‘The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue…science has taken a turn towards darkness.’

    I've printed this out and I'm giving it to my doctor. He made a comment a while ago about science not always being accurate.

    He says, "....but nutritional science is particularly awful. A complete mess." OK, that's a mouthful. But, when did we become so gullible? We all know we can't believe everything we read....nutritional scientific study or not. If one reads and believes a nutritional scientific study that concludes "...eating 12 hazelnuts daily will prolong your life by 12 years....," then you've become way too gullible. Don't ever leave home without it---your common sense.

    Hooray for common sense — which is all too uncommon.
    The Texas School Board actually enacted a policy against teaching critical thinking. Because Texas.
