    Unscientific Things You Believe

    Mean spirited thoughts about other people make your face more troll-like. It's not conspicuous when you're young but it shows up in your 30s - 40s.

    i think it's important to properly contextualize science, the scientific establishment, and the culture thereof.

    it means i believe in a whole lot of things that would be considered unscientific and irrational in the eyes of the cult of science.

    i'm a big fan of science, though. i just don't care for the culture.

    I consider more things to be evidence than some people but I have a feeling you're much less scientific than me. I have a feeling you believe in god for a reason you consider scientific. What is it?

    not trying to ignore you, but unfortunately serious discussions make me anxious, especially when it comes to matters such as this.

    wasn't really expecting anyone to pay much attention to my opinion.

    i.e. i'm a Pastafarian.

    That is, no conceivable method of acquiring--or in Foucault's words "producing"--knowledge can ever be culturally, politically, or ideologically neutral. Much less the actual tangible institutions that societies create for the purpose of organizing endeavors like education and scientific research.


    All claims of knowledge are assertions of Wille zur Macht and therefore cannot ever be made immune to the influences of other social processes that determine how power is distributed and exercised in the surrounding cultural environment in which the claims are asserted.
