No Minister

AND GREAT WAS THE FALL THEREOF!

Buried amongst the over egged hype around the latest virus to sweep the world there is a shit fight continuing amongst some of the greatest scientific minds, all about the complete nonsense of Maori Science being elevated to equal status with established understanding in learning across the spectrum from preschool to the heights of achievement. A fight that has erupted in the once iconic Royal Society where a small group of elite academics dared to question the basis for such nonsense in a letter to the listener magazine(advisedly). Amongst those now threatened with total deplatforming was one Emeritus Professor Michael Corballis, a Titan of International reputation and fame who sadly passed a fortnight ago and the depth of the schism has seen a total absence of any Obituary emerging!

Now There was certainly some basic embryonic science that emerged in remedies and basic food handling and utilisation that became understood but as science in comparison to the centuries of understanding from China, Persia, ancient Greece that underpinned what developed as the body of science is insulting to the very word “SCIENCE”.

Go over to Farrar’s Blog to get a much fuller treatise on the still unfolding saga that could, nay indeed should see the once venerable Royal Society disappear from current existence.

  1. I think this is connected to science funding. If indigenous folklore beliefs can be ratified as legitimate science, then funding applications can be made and taxpayer dollars allocated to approved luvvies and McComrades.

    • Fred – All they (Maori) have to do now is tell the current Government how much they want and the amount asked for will probably be doubled at least.

      I mean if the Waipawa Mongies can get $2.75milllion a scientist asking for $20million could reasonably expect $50million from this lot.
