"The founding of a science more or less on the notion of repetition brings in its train yet another delusion of a quantitative kind, the delusion that consists in thinking that the accumulation of a large number of facts can be of use by itself as ‘proof' of a theory; nevertheless, even a little reflection will make it evident that facts of the same kind are always indefinite in multitude, so that they can never all be taken into account, quite apart from the consideration that the same facts usually fit several different theories equally well. It will be said that the establishment of a greater number of facts does at least give more ‘probability' to a theory; but to say so is to admit that no certitude can be arrived at in that way, and that therefore the conclusions promulgated have nothing ‘exact' about them; it is also an admission of the wholly ‘empirical' character of modern science, although, by a strange irony, its partisans are pleased to accuse of ‘empiricism' the knowledge of the ancients, whereas exactly the opposite is the truth: for this ancient knowledge, of the true nature of which they have no idea whatever, started from principles and not from experimental observations, so that it can truly be said that profane science is built up exactly the opposite way round to traditional science."

"[Modern scientific] theories can necessarily never be more than hypothetical, since their starting-point is wholly empirical, for facts in themselves are always susceptible of diverse explanations and so never have been and never will be able to guarantee the truth of any theory."

"The profane sciences of which the modern world is so proud are really and truly only the degenerate ‘residues’ of the ancient traditional sciences."

For over 50 years, with increasing frequency, corrupted, careerist scientists have produced biased studies that, amplified by agenda-driven corporate and political special interests, constitute a “consensus” that is supposedly “beyond debate.” We are in a “climate crisis.” To cope with this climate emergency, all measures are justifiable.
This is overblown, one-sided, distorted, and manipulative propaganda. It is the language of authoritarians and corporatists bent on achieving even more centralized political power and economic wealth. It is a scam, perhaps the most audacious, all-encompassing fraud in human history. It is a scam that explicitly targets and crushes the middle class in developed nations and the entire aspiring populations in developing nations, at the same time as its messaging is designed to secure their fervent acquiescence.

What is actually beyond debate is not that we are in a climate crisis but that if we don’t stop destroying our conventional energy economy, we are going to be in a civilizational crisis.

Energy is the foundation of everything—prosperity, freedom, upward mobility, national wealth, individual economic independence, functional water and transportation infrastructure, commercial-scale agriculture, mining, and industry. Without energy, it all goes dark. And “renewables” are not even remotely capable of replacing oil, gas, coal, nuclear, and hydroelectric power. It’s impossible.

The only people who think renewables are capable of replacing conventional energy are either uninformed, innumerate, or corrupt.

Hope this is a /sci/ related question?
Took an iq test it's mid 80s.
Is it scientifically possible to increase IQ?
There seems to be debates between scientists on this topic.
I see the test as random patterns but what does that mean in real life?
Can I never get a PhD that I wanted?
Can I never understand higher and scarily advanced math? Or does it mean I just have to work harder than someone with a high iq.
If the brain can physically change while learning something for example the taxi driver experiment where specific parts of their brains were bigger because they had to memorize whole cities, and once they stopped being a driver that area shrank.
IQ is a good predictor of financial success and academic success.
But does it means to just give up and rot?
Will I never be able to understand what Stephen Hawking understood if I pursue a path that he was on hypothetically?
Would I be able to make contributions to the academic world, discover, or invent something?
If you're an expert on a topic you should be able to break it down well enough to explain it to a grade schooler, although it will of course take longer.
But that's obvious cope right.

Can you increase IQ scientifically?

Recreational punter here

I’ve developed a stochastic model to forecast mens tennis match outcomes in Masters and ATP500 tournaments.

Used Pinnacle closing prices and calculated implied prices of model probabilities to backtest profitability of final model. Bets are taken where Pinnacle closing price is greater than model implied price.

Backtested by calculating logprob return of chosen bets on a given day to optimise expected return for that day.

Normalised probability implied by Pinnacle closing price had similar Brier score, but worse reliability component than probabilities from model… so how the FUCK is this not profitable?!

Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated

If you are learning math and physics, it proves that you can understand and solve complex systems. The learning methods you employ, your willingness to learn, and your high IQ can be applied to other fields, which can increase your chances of being hired by an employer at a high starting salary of $300k guaranteed.

Is this true?

>> No.15469948

First of all, learning math and physics can have many benefits for your cognitive and intellectual development. According to some research, learning math and physics can help you develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills12, enhance your mathematical reasoning and numerical sense1, and foster your creativity and curiosity23. These skills can be useful for many fields and disciplines, not just math and physics.

Secondly, learning math and physics can also have many benefits for your career opportunities and prospects. According to some data, physics majors get among the highest scores on standardized tests such as the MCAT and LSAT2, which can open doors for further education in medicine, law, or other fields. Physics majors also have a high rate of employment in various sectors, such as engineering, education, research, or business2. Moreover, learning math and physics can help you understand the fundamental principles and applications of science and technology, which are increasingly important in today’s world234.

However, learning math and physics does not guarantee that you will get hired by an employer at a high starting salary of $300k. There are many other factors that influence your employability and income, such as your experience, network, communication skills, personality, demand, competition, etc. Learning math and physics can certainly give you an edge, but it is not a magic bullet that will solve all your problems.

In conclusion, learning math and physics can have many positive effects on your personal and professional development, but it is not a sufficient condition for achieving success or happiness. You should learn math and physics if you enjoy them and find them meaningful, not just because you expect them to make you rich or famous. Learning math and physics is a journey, not a destination.

Neanderthal pussies were probably a little looser than humans, actually. They had bigger heads and thicker bodies than us, which means the birth canal would have had to be bigger. On the other hand, males probably had small penises as an adaptation to the cold enviroment. It's possible that neanderthal women preferred the bigger homo sapiens penis. Neanderthal males had an advantage over the homo sapiens males as they were swol as fuck and had massive tongues and fingers. So basically anytime the two groups was hornytime.

>Science is in the throes of what is sometimes called the replication crisis, so named because a big hint that a scientific study is wrong is when other teams try to repeat it and get a different result. While some fields, such as psychology, initially seemed more liable than others to generate such “fake news”, almost every area of science has since come under suspicion. An entire field of genetics has even turned out to be nothing but a mirage. Of course, we should expect testing to overturn some findings.
