Trolling on /sci/ is a lot harder than on other boards, mate. You need to try harder if you want to succeed. Read the posts written by me and learn.

>> No.9134389

Part of the issue with trolling on /sci/ is often, like in a large portion of that thread, there's valuable discussion started by anons with each other, ignoring the bait. You'll get a few responses seriously addressing the troll OP, but then it usually turns into everyone laughing at the idiots and discussing ideological differences or taking shits on each others' field, saying that X is better than Y at understanding phenomenon Z.

No, he's more like an idea man. Just like Sagan.

He's not the best scientist, even tho he is brilliant. He's easily the best Science communicator of his generation. Equal to Sagan, Einstein, and Russel.

The thing about science is it's always wrong. It will always be wrong. The point of science is to discover the truth by whittling away the fallacies that surround it till what is left is what appears to be true. It's an a never ending process. As our tools and knowledge improve we can whittle away more and more with finer detail but no mater how close I don't think we're capable of revealing 100% of the truth of the universe. The pursuit of this end goal is in essence what science is and is NOT the information gathered along the way.

The idea, or concept that "science" holds infallible truths is a dangerous one that turns science into a new-age religion, in stead of pursuit of knowledge, and turns scientists into preachers. Black science man wants to capitalize on this idea by being a science preacher who gives random trivia to uncultured swine and presents it as "the gods only truth." This man isn't a scientist. He hasn't made an scientific discoveries or contributions to society. NDT is a VERY dangerous man and people underestimate the damage he's doing to society.

When people are conditioned/brainwashed, either by religion or science preacher men, to accept truths that they're fed by superiors with out understanding or checking the information themselves it creates a very dangerous situation. All you need is 1 bad person in a position of authority. Or 1 meme idea to spread around with nobody fact checking or understanding how it works. This is why anti-vaxers and flat Earthers exist in todays age. They've been conditioned to accept as fact any information that sounds "scientific." NDT is contributing to this phenomenon. Again, dangerous man.
