It should be illegal for anyone who doesn't have a PhD to speak about any scientific subject. Scientific debate/inquiry/questioning should only be done by those who are qualified to do so.

If there were some way to enforce it that didn't open up all sorts of avenues for corruption and abuse of power, I would agree with you, OP. Unfortunately, there's no way you could make that a law and not have it be co-opted by the power hungry to tighten their noose.

logic and science are just a narrative like any other and it is not proven at all it investigates anything

This is because formalized science is based on logicized maths, hyped as ''the language of the universe'' by posci addicts lol

and logicized maths is based on logic

all mathematicians are logic babies addicted to ZFC and they are all platonist, ie ''numbers are real bro not social construct''.

By the way truth is not found in logic. Logic is just a field by autistic pedants about well formed formulas and valuations, ie sending a formula to 1 or 0 and asking what are those valuations which are stable under inference rules. Zero truth in this, especially truth in the casual sense. Tarski truth is moronic, meaningless. Peak atheist.
Just like there is no truth in science, just some stats and a stat convention for saying ''if p value is XXX then the result is''true''''

This is why science is shit for politics and even for daily life.
At best scientists can come up about some stats about some formal system. Like ''this material has such and wear and tear, therefore our backlog of such conditons lead to 60% of breaking in the next year''
That's the pinnacle of the scientific claim and all their claims remain phrased as uncertainty.

all of this because the brain got bigger while the cranium stayed the same.

>> No.12372670

Real numbers are fake because there's no way to actually do arithmetic on them to get results like you can with natural numbers or rational numbers.
They rely on weak imprecise definitions, most often what a set is, so neither Dedekind, nor Cauchy nor other supposed definitions of real numbers actually work.

Authoritarians are tolerable so long as they're useful
Modern science has shown how much it bends the knee to narrative and funding, and how much of a compounded jenkem huffing circle its become. No ones making incredible discoveries in part due to elitism, rigidity, and static conditioning.

So no, in the current context, science authoritarians are generally unworthy.

I wouldn't even mind if you guys created your own hub of autism to see how much the empirical methods themselves will suffocate your progress, which they in part already have.

Then people can get off the plantation and start curiously experimenting with fundamentally different concepts that aren't subject to your fruitless dogmatism and impotent elitism.

Having met several complete morons with a PhD, it should be illegal for retards to speak about science, whether they have a PhD or not. Many of them are nothing more than bureaucrats. Apes in suits.

Even though PhD selects for people with above average intelligence and other positive traits, having a PhD has zero correlation with the ability to predict the future correctly.

That means a PhD literally has zero value as qualification when talking about one of the biggest real world applications of science: predicting future outcomes.

If anything, it should be illegal for authoritarian scum like OP to speak about any scientific subject, since academic work has a negative correlation with the ability to predict the future and them joining public debates about issues is therefore detrimental to society.

So how do students learn? They can't. Hence, it must not be forbidden.
Also, we're paid by the tax payer, so we have to be able to explain to her what we do with the money. That's only possible with a certain minimum of scientific education.
>Scientific debate/inquiry/questioning should only be done by those who are qualified to do so.
Very wrong. But decision making should only be done by experts.
