UPDATE: Hillary Clinton LOVES the march for SCIENCE.
Marching in the streets of the world yesterday, tens of thousands of concerned citizens (and people employed by the various sciences) came out from their labs and school rooms to inform us, the ignorant masses, that science, glorious science, is all important, it reaches past partisan boundaries and cannot be, must not be, challenged or mocked without the direst consequences.
Apart from those who were out there protesting the Duke of Orange’s cuts to education and the EPA, those who were there protesting his deregulation plan which will decimate the environment, those whom I applaud and stand with, most others were out there sending their message in support of the theory of man-made GLOBAL WARMING…. oooooo
And their message was simple… you aren’t an Ordained Glorious Scientist so shut up and accept this as the ultimate truth. So sayeth Science. So sayeth the lord.
The ignorant plebes needed to be educated by the authority figures in the white lab
robes coats so they even brought out the schoolhouse chalk boards to make damn sure we didn’t miss their patronizing lesson. You are children in need of … education.
After all, 97% of all scientists agree. Says so right there on the board. How do you simpletons dare disagree with numbers like that?
It used to be the the preachers, the priests and the rabbis who put forth the declarations for the masses to follow blindly. They too spoke to the gods and who were we to question their divine knowledge? They had sanctified insight which we mere mortals did not.
People were told there would be a terrible price too pay if they listened to the heretics and questioned the almighty truth handed down by the anointed ones. A terrible price indeed. Floods, famine, drought, pestilence, plagues, volcano eruptions… these were the wrath of the gods visited upon the community because of the crazy unbelievers and their dreaded DOUBT.
But those were primitive days and certainly we have evolved beyond such measures of influence and control… haven’t we?
Oh Glorious Science… it has indeed produced amazing contributions to society since the Dark Ages.
We put men on the moon… right?
We cured cancer or… maybe not for everyone.
We ended hunger and developed boundless energy for all for free in order to liberate us from those who seek our endless enslavement to serve their quest for riches. Right?
Oh Mighty Science… what have you really done for us, lately?
Let us humbly count a few of your glorious blessings.
