There's wisdom in it. The alternative would be to use wisdom to harness intellect, rather than impulse. It's almost painful knowing we'd probably be an interplanetary species if we could all stop wasting time figuring out where the planets came from.

It's really quite brilliant. Every field of all scientific study has some kind of Origins related date attached to it, which logically means that part of the field of study was wasted placing a date of origin on the subject of the study.

The glue that holds it together is that it plays on man's mortal fear of unknowing. And therefore guarantees that it will always consume either a small or very sizeable percentage of whatever study is being conducted. That percentage, once tallied all up, is the difference between where we are now and where we could be.

Unfortunately for you, most science is pseudo-science.
Astrophysics is fiction.
Space is mostly fiction.
Human space travel is fiction.
Attosecond light streak cameras are fiction.
Man-made microprocessors are fiction.
Speed of light is fiction.
Atomic clocks are fiction.
Most of GR/SR is fiction.
The entirety of the medical field is fiction.
Evolution is fiction.

Really blows my mind just how many brainlets there are out there pretending to be smart by regurgitating the lies which were regurgitated into them through the social fuckstain experiment that is higher education. Lets face it, you'd have a lot more time to figure the truths out for yourself if the world was not falsely already presented as defacto. If you could get paid to discover the real truths rather than force your livlihood to rely on keeping up jewish occultist lies, you'd totally wanna know more about these things. As is though, you'll hust be ostracized, lose your job, and slandered as crazy.

What a wacky nutty world we live in. Even aftee staring at God for 30 years, you'd sooner believe no such thing exists.

Yeah you bring up a good point, it is very strange people don't see the clear differences between science and reality.

Take relativity for example, one major notion of relativity is that spaces are curved. People will construe that into all space is curved. However in reality, it really depends on which level of analysis you look on. On the macro scale when we go for a walk we don't account for the curvature of our path.

To say the curvature across small paths is negligible is an understatement. It is truly non existent. On that level of analysis, we don't use the Riemann curvature tensor to calculate our path, it would not give us the straight line we see in reality.

Impossible since by its very nature as a pseudo-theory it makes no concrete claims and has no consistent formulation; there are as many definitions of biosemiotics as there are brain-dead individuals who espouse it, most of which are contradictory to each other and sometimes even themselves.

They are only 2% of US population, at max. Assuming a normal distribution of intelligence, this mean that intelligence alone cannot explain the degree of their overrepresentation. Babby-tier stats can prove that they are given some kind of preferential treatment.
