How Many Scientists Does It Take to Expose a Hoax?

Who could argue with a fair and open-minded approach to life and learning; however, on the narrow issue of whether all sides of a forced debate — such as on anthropogenic global warming — are at least in part honest, is there always an element of truth even in the most wrong-headed view of reality? Generally, the temptation is to think so or there wouldn’t be a debate.

Even so, shouldn’t we at least modify our rules about fairness and open-mindedness when we are presented with a hoax? Otherwise, after we sift through all of the claims and reconcile them with the larger body of knowledge, what’s left?

What valuable knowledge did we learn from the Piltdown Man Hoax concerning man’s ascent from the jungle? Wasn’t the lesson learned wholly outside the claims that were made by the scientists that perpetrated that fraud? What was learned about is scientists can be fraudulent and deceitful and also fooled by charlatans and their own preconceived notions.

And, where is the accountability. It took fifty years to run the Piltdown Man hoax to ground and another fifty years to discern who all that were in on the hoax. We are all too aware of those who have fomented and facilitated the global warming hoax and engaged in scare tactics to deceive the public. Shouldn’t the victims of the AGW sting at least have the satisfaction of knowing that truth was brought to light from the dark shadows of Plato’s cave despite the intentional deception and fear and superstition and shouldn’t the charlatans be branded as liars?

About Wagathon

Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat. A Chance Meeting– We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac

    Leftist bureaucracy’s use of global warming scare tactics as a means for social change has been a fire bomb in the hands of the liberal mob.

  3. Truth is not scientific, only grants are. The players of the scientific ponzi scheme have found their mountain of money via the taxpayer. Justice is no longer blind. With her blindfold shorn from her face, all is revealed. She is Janus and we are the silly sheep being herded off the cliff of insanity.
