San Diego, California, Aug. 1, 2011 -- FDR’s
dream of the benefits of post-WWII government-supported civilian science
over time has become a nightmare, according to scientist J. Marvin
Herndon, in a article published in
The Dot Connector
magazine which exposes the widespread, institutional corruption of
American science and traces its origin to the flawed methodologies
invented in the 1950s by the National Science Foundation and in use at
virtually all U. S. Government science-funding agencies.
Quote: “… for more than half a century, the U.
S. National Science Foundation (NSF) has been doing what no foreign
power or terrorist organization can do: Slowly, imperceptibly
undermining American scientific capability, driving America toward
third-world status in science and in education, corrupting individuals
and institutions, rewarding the deceitful and the institutions that they
serve, stifling creative science, and infecting the whole scientific
community with flawed anti-science practices based upon an unrealistic
vision of human behavior”.
According to the article, this is the legacy:
Secret reviews, White House acquiescence, blacklisting, suppression of
scientific contradictions by special-interest cartels, fear to
contradict, fear to cite contradictions, fear to teach anything but
committee-consensus science, deception through systematically ignoring
scientific advances, in the scientific community and at NASA.
Herndon describes institutionalized
blacklisting here, in America, bought and paid for by the National
Science Foundation, through a computerized author-self-publishing
archive (arXiv.org) where scientists have posted hundreds of thousands
of scientific papers without human intervention, except those
individuals who without recourse are “denounced”, singled out for
disparate treatment by a secret group of insiders; their papers either
do not post or are “buried” in an inappropriate category, such as
general physics or general mathematics, where it is
unlikely they will be seen.
Quote: “Instead of obeying that law that
established it, the U. S. National Science Foundation placed into the
hands of one major, well-financed competitor a powerful tool (arXiv.org)
that could, not only be applied arbitrarily with capricious standards
against its competitors, but through such actions would cast the shadow
of fear at being “denounced” in secret and thereupon being blacklisted,
further ensuring “politically correct” consensus conformity and
The author asks the question: Has the National
Academy of Sciences ever advised the U. S. Government of the flaws in
the operating procedures of science-funding agencies that are corrupting
and trivializing American science?
The article describes the institutional suppression
of work revealing scientific mistakes that have cost taxpayers untold
millions of dollars and which will continue to waste money on futile
investigations while ignoring important global implications.
Quote: “Because of the global catastrophic
significance, suppressing science related to the possibility of very
rapid geomagnetic field changes, in my view, is tantamount to a betrayal
of trust, an act of treason, against humanity.”
This is why, the article asserts, despite
ever-increasing budgets, American science and science education continue
declining to third-world status as they have for decades.
