Your money pays for incoherent, anti-white mush.

This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee.

As you have probably heard, the hard sciences are full of “white supremacy.” I have always wondered how math and physics could be racist, and thanks to a half-million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation, now we know. As the authors of a seminal paper report, they have “made whiteness visible.”

The paper is called “Observing whiteness in introductory physics: A case study,” and it’s in a peer-reviewed journal called Physical Review Physics Education Research.

Let’s start with what the authors call their “positionalities.” Amy D. Robertson says she is “a chronically ill and disabled, physics-Ph.D.-holding, thin wealthy white woman.”

Here she is, research professor of physics at Seattle Pacific University.

She adds that as part of the “hegemony of whiteness” in which she plays a reluctant part, her own whiteness was long invisible to her, but she is now “waking up to the world as it is, with gratitude for the support of Friends, Scholars, and Activists of Color.”

So, she’s a newbie in all this, but she’s got the zeal of a convert, and “sees this paper as one piece of her effort to join the collective struggle for liberation from white supremacy.”

Her co-author, Tali Hairston, works for the Seattle Presbytery as Director of Community Organizing, Advocacy, and Development.

The presbytery covers 48 churches in the area and admits, right on its home page, that “our houses of worship are located on the ancestral lands of the Duwamish and Salish peoples” and that it is committed to “dismantling structural racism.”

Mr. Hairston’s “positionality” is such that he “identifies with the larger historical narrative of pre-enslavement and precolonial African rootedness.”

Arabs started raiding black Africa for slaves in the 8th century, so the “historical narrative of pre-enslavement” is thin.

But even more important, “for this project Hairston brings forward equity in education that is not centered in white normativity.”

Unlike Prof. Robertson, he was born with a gift for unmasking whiteness.

The authors explain that they capitalize black, Hispanic, and person of color, but they don’t capitalize white because it “is a socially constructed category that was created for the purposes of dominance and exclusion.”

The very first sentence of the paper is this: “Critical Race Theory names that racism and white supremacy are endemic to all aspects of U.S. society, from employment to schooling to the law.”

This is not a hypothesis; it is an axiom.

So, how does this study unmask white supremacy right in a college classroom? First, the authors get off to a strange start: “We define whiteness in the following way: Within whiteness, organization of social life is in terms of a center and margins that are based on dominance [and] control.”

If you have a center that dominates the margins, you have white supremacy? The authors even admit: “Notably, this definition does not require actors be white in order to participate in whiteness.”

That, to me, says, “trouble ahead,” but it leads to a flow chart that explains, in their words, “how multiple forms of oppression are related, and how these lead to multiple forms of harm.”

Apparently, it all starts with colonialism, before which everyone was happy. Remember: all this is taken for granted before we see even a lick of data.

For the study, these scientists “video recorded four consecutive days of instruction” of a college physics course. Out of the four days, they chose just one six-and-a-half minute snippet to analyze, presumably the six and a half minutes of the most visible, pernicious whiteness.

The class in the video was taught by a mixed-race, half-white woman who gave an assignment to three students: a Middle-Eastern man, a white woman, and a Hispanic woman, who have to solve a physics problem. The paper has still images from the video of what happened, along with bits of dialogue – some of them inaudible – that caught white supremacy red handed.

After the students hear the assignment, the Middle-Eastern man picks up a marker and starts solving the problem on the white board. The two women ask a few questions and make a few comments, but the Middle-Easterner solves the problem to the satisfaction of all three students. They go back to their seats and the biracial teacher asks the group to explain the solution. The Middle-Easterner raises his hand, and the Hispanic woman then gestures to him as the best person to explain.

Where’s the white supremacy? In several places. The four and a half minutes were centered on the Middle-Easterner’s getting the right answer, and getting the right answer is white supremacy. Why is that? It ignores “ways of knowing that have not historically been recognized by physics (e.g., Eastern and Indigenous ways of knowing).”

And that is white supremacy because “enforcing a social organization with a (consistent) center and margins is epistemicide[45], or ‘the extermination of knowledge and ways of knowing’.”

Epistemicide, no less!

Using the whiteboard is white supremacy because “with white organizational culture, . . . ideas and experiences gain value (become more central) when written down.”

The fact that whiteboards are white is apparently not white supremacy.

But there’s more. The Middle-Easterner made a couple of little notations on the board after a comment or two from the women, but you wouldn’t know that from looking at the words. What he wrote is therefor ahistorical. And you know that means: “Ahistoricity supports revisionist versions of history that fuel white racial ideologies, by centering white perspectives on historical events [and] downplaying white violence, disconnecting current racial violence and trauma from its long history.”

All that wickedness was hiding right there on the whiteboard, but these two crack scientists laid it bare.

Now, if you think that all we see in these six and a half minutes is that the man who knew the solution took over and the women followed his lead, these scientists have refuted you in advance. They say you are “engaging in bad-faith argumentation.”

The scientists spent part of their half million dollars interviewing the people in this drama. They report that the Hispanic woman, whom they call Paris, wasn’t at all bothered by what happened. She said she likes it when people who know the answer speak up and explain how they got it: “In fact, Paris appreciates the centering of these students, which helps her to get the right answer, the thing that has been ascribed value by whiteness, over and above other things.”

She is an unwitting victim and accomplice of white supremacy.

The scientists also interviewed the Middle-Easterner who was viciously “centering” himself and they interviewed the white woman student who, despite basking in white privilege all her life, was the most marginalized person of all. But they don’t tell us a thing they said. Maybe they said the whole paper was hogwash.

Which, of course it was. I can imagine an identical little game of center-and-margin in a class full of Ethiopians. Or even 1,000 years ago, when a band of Kalahari bushmen – who had never even heard of white people – got lost in the desert, and the guy who had the best idea of where to go drew a map on the ground with a stick to explain why it was better to go left rather than right.

I guess that was white supremacy in blackface.

This whole, idiotic, \$500,000 paper boils down to one idea: Getting the right answer is white supremacy, and not considering Eastern or indigenous “ways of knowing” is “epistemicide.” I am quite sure that Easterners themselves – Chinese and Japanese – don’t give two hoots what Confucius ever said about thermodynamics.

But these fools? At the end of their paper, they write: “Scholars, Teachers, and Activists of Color – note the reverential upper case – have been dreaming and creating for ages, and have invited us to join the movement for collective liberation. We want to dream together, with you, toward physics teaching and learning as a ‘world where many worlds are possible.’ ”

No, no, and no. The Chinese want to get to the moon. Build a better virus. They must be goggle-eyed with amazement at this rubbish.

And remember: This was funded by a National Science Foundation grant for \$513,283.

That’s tax money. It was published in a peer-reviewed journal, which means the reviewers were all equally crazy. If this was all the white supremacy they could find with half a million dollars there isn’t any there, and they should shut up about it. And everyone involved in making this grant and spending the money should be fired. But, I’m sure, next time they will spend a full million hunting for white supremacy because, you see, they know it’s there.

According to Research Professor Amy Robertson’s CV, she has been principal investigator or co-principal investigator for six grants, totaling \$2,296,000, and all but \$2,000 of that was from the National Science Foundation.

Your money. I’m sure there’ll be more.

Just for fun, I sent email to the scientists who wrote this mush, politely asking if they spent the full half-million on this and if not, what they would spend the rest on. Amy didn’t reply, but Tali wrote back to say he wasn’t telling. I wrote to say that his LinkedIn page says, “Since 2018, we have co-led the strategy assessment and community engagement of King County’s Puget Sound Taxpayers Accountability Account.”

I said I was a taxpayer who wanted accountability. He wrote back: “I won’t entertain this obvious demonstration of privilege anymore.” I told you: He was born with the power to unmask whiteness.

But what an embarrassment. If Republicans ever control Congress will they look into this craziness? The National Science Foundation, like every piece of government, is under orders to “eliminate barriers to equity in program delivery.”

Amy and Tali are certainly not studying superconductivity or gamma ray imaging, but NSF can brag that it splashed out half a million to a thin, chronically sick white female and a bona fide person of color. It got a compost heap in return, but “equity” is being achieved.

This will continue until we stop it or the whole system comes crashing down. It can’t happen soon enough.

    What was a deferment is now an endorsement.

  2. Realist says:

    The abject stupidity in this country is destroying it.

    Robertson is a perfect example of the damage done when standards are lowered to accommodate social justice idiocy. After the initial lowering of standards, the mistake perpetuates itself.

    If merit was the only requirement for admittance to STEM programs Robertson would not be a problem, because she would not have a degree in anything.

    If Republicans ever control Congress will they look into this craziness?

    LOL there is not a goddamn chance in hell Republicans will look into this craziness or any other craziness. Looking into is not what is called for here…elimination is what is called for.

    Merit was very much alive when I earned my degree decades ago.

    “Racism” is merely a bespoke term for heresy. The religion is Egalitarianism, which is Envy worship.

    Math reveals differences between people. The ones that are bad at math become envious.

    In NeoChristianity, feeling Envy isn’t the sin, violently expressing Envy certainly isn’t the sin, inspiring Envy is the sin. And you call it racism. So yeah, math is super racist.

    NSF “nationalized” science. In other words, it’s Communist science. (Speaking of envy…) Try not to be surprised when Communist science lives up to the high quality standards that Communism is known for.

    Most of math is pretty white. All the important theorems in math are called “X’s theorem” where X is usually a European name. Kepler, Newton, Liebniz, etc.

    As this is UR, I’ll point out that after emancipation, we get lots of Jewish names too.

    “I said I was a taxpayer who wanted accountability. He wrote back: “I won’t entertain this obvious demonstration of privilege anymore.”
    So to pay taxes is more privileged than not to pay taxes? Wow, I never knew that we the 99% were more privileged than the 1%….(no doubt why elites support all this “wokeness” shit.)

  11. One poster injected the term “psychobabble” into the discussion, and he’s not far wrong. Is there a Boomer alive who at some point in the mid-to-late 70’s or 80’s didn’t pick up a popular [though far from deserving of its popularity!] paperback “self-help” book, read its 180-or-so-pages of largely circular half-baked theories, and fancy one’s self an authority on all things behavioral? I’m thinking of titles such as “I’m OK, You’re OK” which was quickly parodied as “I’m OK But You’re Fuckin’ Crazy.” Another breezy read was “Your Erroneous Zone.” The authors of these less-than-weighty tomes coined a buzzword or two, then mercilessly pounded them into the ground, or at least into the mush that passed for grey matter of anyone dumb enough to fork over the then princely sum of\$2.95.

  17. From author wiki:

    Taylor was born on September 15, 1951, to Christian missionary parents from Virginia in Kobe, Japan.[10][11] He lived in Japan until he was 16 years old and attended Japanese schools up to the age of 12, becoming fluent in Japanese.[10]

    He attended Yale University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy in 1973.[11] Taylor then spent three years in France and received a Master of Arts degree in international economics at Sciences Po in 1978.[12] During a period that interrupted his undergraduate and later graduate college years, he worked and traveled extensively in West Africa, improving his French in the Francophone regions of the continent.[10][11] Taylor is fluent in French, Japanese, and English.

    Mr. Taylor doesn’t seem to be exactly “qualified” to make such rigid judgements about the fraud of Amy Robertson’s teaching methods. But like any other citizen, he is free to state his doubts about the apparent BS in the Robertson papers.

    Personally I suspect this is a case of “Publish or Perish”. University professors have to have a constant output of papers to maintain their jobs. I’ll agree with Mr. Taylor that the Observing whiteness in introductory physics: A case study paper looks mighty strange. One oddity I saw was the inclusion of “Critical Race Theory”, something missing in a previous Robertson paper published back in 2016 in The Physics Teacher.

    Unveiling Privilege to Broaden Participation

    Countering racism and sexism in physics, as in society, will require action at national, institutional, and interpersonal levels. We take the perspective that the path toward reconciliation and equity is to support instructors who identify as members of dominant groups – for this paper, White and/or male instructors 10 – in recognizing their own privilege, coping with the discomfort of unfair advantage, and coming to see themselves as agents of change who can contribute to the disruption of systems of unfair advantage. 11,12 This paper starts to synthesize some of the ideas that we (the authors, both White females) have found helpful in starting this journey for ourselves.

    Followed by:

    We intentionally do not propose specific solutions – in part because we do not feel ready to do so, in part because we want such work to emerge from a community dialogue, and in part because we believe that any “solutions” should elevate voices of those who identify as marginalized.

    My translation: Robertson has discovered a Racism/Sexism Problem in Physics, but doesn’t want to do any more than bitch and moan about it. I strongly suspect Critical Race Theory wasn’t included in the 2016 paper it wasn’t a popular buzzword then.

    So being a bit skeptical about the publishing niche Amy Robertson has carved for herself is likely justified.

    Personally, I suspect that if some Nobel-Prize level of discovery is made by a left-handed, red-headed, disabled lesbian who is also an illegal alien, that person is likely to get full credit and recognition. Unless of course they’re under the supervision or shadow of some racist white asshole. Naturally I’m thinking about a 1962 Nobel Prize which wasn’t shared by Rosalind Franklin. The blackballing of Carl Sagan by the National Academy of Sciences also comes to mind.

    Racism surely exists in Physics as it does everywhere else, but so do small-minded jerks and fools.

  18. Petermx says:

    Hopefully someday Professor Amy D. Robertson will be prosecuted, convicted and punished for her racism. She shouldn’t be convicted for her stupidity but it should be noted in the verdict. Two years behind bars might be a fair sentence. She can share the same cell as her friend W. Tali Hairston. We’ll see how that goes and if she likes it.

    And she certainly doesn’t look “chronically-ill”.

    She has juvenile arthritis (diagnosed at the age of two). That can be a bloody serious problem or a minor inconvenience — it varies from person to person and on what medication is available.

    A classmate in highschool had a really severe case and it completely screwed up his life. A girl I knew at uni had it and you wouldn’t know if she didn’t tell you. A family member has it and, again, you wouldn’t know from looking at her. New medication has helped a lot (TNF-alpha monoclonal antibodies). Joint pain is a large part of the symptoms but tiredness is probably a bigger issue for most.

    She has published no less than 3 (three) “papers” about it:

  25. It’s funny isn’t it. On the building sites where I earn a living, we come up against problems that need solutions all the time. And the best solution, according to the facts, is the one that we always go with, unless you have some egotist involved who insists on their solution being the one that we go with, in spite of problems with it that are immediately apparent to those of us who are only interested in facts and not emotion. Buildings don’t get built because of emotion, they get built by properly by sticking to the facts and listening to the best solutions and answers. Where emotion and ego are introduced into the process, things go wrong, without fail. If people get hurt because nobody listened to their bad idea, you’d better buckle up because you are going to have the piss ripped out of you.

    “Studies” of this type are based solely on emotion and ego, primarily the emotion of jealousy which arises because soft brained people can’t handle not knowing best. As such, they mean absolutely nothing, but we all know that. The only thing they are worthy of is piss taking.

  27. Who prepared this article? It is so garbled that I gave up trying to read it. For example, before Amy Robertson’s Faculty Profile photograph is a sentence beginning: Her efforts to “make — and then I can’t find the rest of the sentence, or find the closing quote mark that matches the opening quote mark preceding the word “make”. What is the object of the transitive verb “make”? It seems to be part of the phrase “make [not ‘write’] this paper”. Is this an essay about papermaking?

    Another example follows the picture of coffled slaves. A sentence begins “In this paper, we choose not to capitalize white …” This is preceded by a raised numeral 1, as if this sentence is a footnote. Also, immediately preceding this sentence is the bottom half of an obscured preceding line of text, in which a descender is seen immediately above the second “p” of “paper”.

    The sloppy production of this article shows no care for the reader, and is thus not worth spending the time to read.

    I have gone through both the education system in a capitalist country, France, for nine grades, and a socialist country, ex-Yugoslavia, the final three grades. When I moved, it took me a whole semester to adapt and reach the level of other students in math, physics and chemistry. They were taught things in previous years that I wasn’t in France so I had to do quite a bit of catch-up. For a youngster who had been effortlessly not only best in class but best in school eight grades in a row, it was quite a novelty.
    The problem in Western education isn’t socialism. Education in socialism wasn’t bad because of what it taught, it was bad because of nepotism and corruption. Earning a university degree fair and square required much harder work in socialist countries than in the West. Theoretically, socialism requires that people be educated. How on Earth do you think the Russians managed to develop the weapons they developed?
    Socialism, communism, marxism are Don Quixote’s windmills. The problem in Western education is the same as in everything else: Jewish supremacism.

    Just reading the abstract to that piece of dreck any fool could tell that the entire adventure outlined is totally bogus. It is the product of deliberately fallacious and totally delusional thinking. These are grifters, con artists, who can’t even use the English language properly. You don’t get to invent an entirely novel and absurd vocabulary to sustain your mad ravings.

    I’d like to know just who were the peer reviewers of this hoax, because they must surely be in on the hoax themselves. I’m retired after a long career as a professor directing research in biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular genetics at a major state flagship university, who has served on NIH and NSF study sections as well as being a peer reviewer for numerous professional journals in these sciences, and can tell you that this sort of fraud never used to go on at the NIH or the NSF. Any grant proposal submitted was reviewed by a study section of at least two dozen, not just credentialed but distinguished researchers in the same field of study. Well over half the applications would be summarily rejected upon first reading by all individuals in the group (which was detailed, not perfunctory, demanding a point-by-point discussion of both major goals and specific approaches proposed to meet such goals) and sent back, ineligible for further consideration in that years batch. Upon further review, MOST of the rest were rejected, often for the most niggling of mistatements, flaws or doubts as to feasibility, practicality or relevance to the main thrust of research in the general field of study. The percentage of applicants to actually receive federal funding was usually in the single digit percentages.

    The kind of bullshit proffered here would be dispatched to the round file upon reading the title alone. Reading the first couple of sentences in the abstract would solidify its place in fantasy fiction. These clowns might as well have proposed to sequence the genome of unicorns and establish their place in the taxonomy of Eurasian equines. No, lady, the brown colored herds do NOT shit chocolate soft serve iced cream. No, Herr, Doktor, Professor Black Man, vanilla is not the product of excess homozogosity for recessive alleles directing melanin synthesis. And both you people should be stripped of your degrees and faculty positions as you apparently learned nothing of actual science during your own schooling and are now dispensing pure bunk, and really extreme bunk, to impressionable young minds whom you want to convert into fellow racist haters of white people.

    You will destroy, not just science, but all of civilisation should you wild-eyed maniacs succeed in your mission, and anybody who peer reviewed your bolus of abject nonsense, declared it not just coherent but actual “science” and worthy of millions in funding will be equally guilty co-conspirators in this outrageous charade. If Americans were still rational, as they were twenty years ago, I would say this bullshit needs to be investigated by Congress and exposed for the blatant fraud that it is, but Congress today knows only how to suck up to the purveyors of such garbage, as long as it is dispensed by “minorities” and “people of color.” Enjoy the fruits of your deceptions that loot the federal treasury while you can, just as the “defense” contractors do by exploiting all the wars trumped up specifically for the purpose. I can assure both of you groups of jackals that the total economic collapse of America is nigh and you won’t have a white middle class to fleece any longer.

  32. Here are two facts that are all you need to know about these people:

    1. There is still slavery in North Africa.
    2. These people don’t care at all about this issue.

    That is all you need to know, because obviously the continued existence of the institution of slavery is worse than anything happening in America right now. In fact, there is so little social injustice in America right now that any genuine “social justice warrior” wouldn’t even bother thinking about America, but would head straight to other parts of the world. One could put it even more strongly: anyone trying to promote “social justice” in America these days is probably doing the exact opposite. That is, they are promoting social injustice. They are promoting social injustice because they are attacking innocent people, in this case white physicists and mathematicians. (That seems to be their whole purpose, actually, to go after innocent people whose ancestors were not perfect human beings.) That math and physics exclude “other ways of knowing” is not a defect because there is no good reason to think of them as other ways of knowing. And that should be the end of the matter. Of course, it won’t be.

    Incidentally, one person who was bad at math, Barbara Oakley, became good at math. A lot of people who think they are bad at math have simply had bad math teachers or didn’t approach the subject in the right way.

    It’s about energy input and heating a liquid — it’s really, really basic stuff that has no place whatsoever in a university. My high school classes in Denmark went over this (quickly, as it was trivial) early in our first year (when most of us were 15). The object wasn’t so much to teach us about heat capacity but to give us a really easy topic for our first student experiments — high school physics in Denmark back than was 1) absolutely calculus-based past the first year and 2) based on performing lots of famous experiments ourselves.

    How can these people be in college and have trouble with something this easy?

    I’d like to know just who were the peer reviewers of this hoax, because they must surely be in on the hoax themselves.

    I think a lot of people in the last few years have felt pressured to support things they ordinarily wouldn’t have supported because they worry they will be fired or be hassled, and the people pressuring them do not necessarily support these things either. But the elites are worried that a Twitter storm will descend upon their institution (whether it’s a college or a corporation), and then their institution will get negative publicity. And so they feel they have to say and do certain things just so they won’t have to engage in damage control later on.

    You will destroy, not just science, but all of civilisation should you wild-eyed maniacs succeed in your mission.

    Yes it is coming but those who have to be forewarned are first and foremost the Blacks : once the Whites are back into serfs’ condition as 98% of them were not so long ago in history, once another race is in charge, even the White Jews, or more probably some South or East Asian group having out-Jewed the Jews, Blacks will never have it so good as when they could accuse the Whites in charge of their woes. The present-day promotion of Blacks serves one aim : dethroning surplus Whites from roles coveted by other contenders who are far from loving Blacks. Once that aim is achieved, well, the situation will resemble that of the Ottoman Empire : Whites were enslaved for sure but White slaves fetched the highest price and were bought by the Arab elites to whiten their bloodlines. There was not the shadow of a doubt that the Blacker you were the nearer the beast you were. The official story will be that at the apex of medieval civilizations things were great because nearly all clear-skinned races were composed of slaves and serfs having been conquered or bought by particular Jewish tribes of a strange Jewish heresy, Christianity, that came to be interpreted as an equalitarian doctrine by the White serfs who built a counter-civilization by purloining knowledge and inventions from Oriental peoples and from non-Christian Jews. High knowledge was confined in the Orient. When things are back to normal Jews and/or Orientals will take back credit for all discoveries formerly ascribed to Whites. The Pythagorean theorem will be known as the Gougu theorem. Care will be taken to feed the White populace with myths and legends only. But Blacks being a nuisance rather than a slave race will be castrated for the most part. One of the main reproach made to Whites will be having once considered them as equals, which proved to be theiir ultimate demise.

    Here is proof that shows 0.999… = 1. Write 0.9999…. as:

    (So sum 9/10^n from n=1, inf)

    Now multiply by 10:

    10 x = sum{1,inf} 9/10^{n-1}

    Rearrange this as:

    10 x = 9 + sum{1,inf} 9/10^n

    (sorry, skipping a step as it is very inconvenient to type math here! If you are confused, replace n-1 by m and then you will get the above easily)

    Which means that:

    10 x = 9 + x.

    Here is a view from inside (I work as a physicist in a leading institution). The DIE ideology has become institutionalized, even in hard-sciences, even in highly abstract fields like theoretical physics and mathematics. It is nearly impossible to go a single day without some DIE activities or reminders about DIE being sent out. Every picture on department websites, news-articles and the sort must have mandatory POCs and women. However, the unfortunate reality for DIE ideologues is that most of the actual work is done by men, so once in a while there are some incongruous pictures of a man (even white!) in a news release. It is possible that soon some administrator will determine that actual physics or mathematics is not the purpose of a physics or math department, and so all stories of real breakthroughs will be suppressed. We are heading towards many institutions, specially the second- or third-tier colleges, becoming job programs for DIE fanatics.

    Here is a paradoxical thing: if I, as a straight, hetro guy, go up for evaluation and promotion, the criteria are insanely rigorous. Committees will look at my papers, my citation counts, my impact in the field, the impact of my students on the field etc. However, now consider a woman (blacks are essentially not present at all in many top physics departments) is up for promotion. The management will go out of the way to ensure she is not evaluated with the same rigor. In fact, her failures will be covered up and even minor accomplishments paraded around as amazing breakthroughs. An extreme example of this is the woman who was hailed as a scientific genius when the photo of a black-hole was published last year. She had made like 2 github commits, those too just setting some color schemes, yet was paraded around in the media as some sort of genius. The guy who wrote vast majority of the code did not even get a single mention or even 1/100 of the attention. This is common-place in my institution.

    What is insidious about the paper Jared Taylor analyzed here is that it attacks the concept of physics itself. It’s essential message is that concepts like energy, solving a problem correctly, mathematically proving things in a step-by-step manner, writing things down in a systematic manner, etc are racist, abelist, misogynist, homophobic etc. Hence, the verbiage in the paper about how physics is ahistrorical, how centering the written word itself is racist etc. I mean, consider the opening of John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Clearly, the concept that words matter and are essentially transcendental in the Western canon, is something that is not acceptable to these uncouth barbarians.

    Incidentally, this “paper” generated a lot of controversy within the American Physical Society (the society that published the journal in which this garbage appeared). So much so, that the APS had to devote a whole page of their newspaper defending this crap.

They get to call themselves “scientists”. Lots of people want to be known as “scientists” who really aren’t. I don’t imagine that people learn physics any better today than they did in 1980. The fact is, physics is hard and most people aren’t ever going to understand it very well.

    The actual heart of the issue usually isn’t properly addressed. Some people don’t accept that 0.999… = 1 because they think that they are being asked to believe that 1 followed by infinitely many zero’s is the same as 0 followed by infinitely many 9’s. If numbers were defined purely as digit sequences (using whatever formalism is preferred) then certainly 0.999…. is not 1.

    Of course the real numbers these digit sequences represent (usually defined as Dedekind cuts) are indeed the same. 0.999…. represents SUM (n in 1..inf) 9^(-n) and this is object is the same Dedekind cut that “1” represents.

    I only say this because when I was in high school it appeared that my highschool teacher didn’t understand the issue, and it was presented as a sort of philosophical matter rather than a logical matter. I think that the class debated it for maybe 15 minutes or so but arguably, with the definitions that had been given to us, the wrong people were right.

The wrongness of it all isn’t really their concern. I feel much more disdain for the respectable conservatives who serve as lickspittles for the elite, sometimes in exchange for 30 shekels, but many of them have received nothing.

    Hindus did not try to think in terms of first principles and building blocks, because their methods were always empirical. Their astronomy works will simply tell you: “Count the asterism of the Sun, multiply it by 283, add 35, divide by 78, ignore the remainder; the dividend will give you the day of the month counted from the last day (or some such thing)”. They won’t explain why or how. As long as the formula gives the correct answer, they are happy. When the formulas start going wrong, they wait for their next genius to be born, to update the empirical formula.

    They have done some incredible things in empirical formulas – like measuring the circumference of an elliptical eclipse without going into Elliptical Integrals, but using only arithmetics! But you cannot derive the formula from any first or last principle.

    This comment is stupid. She’s not “pocketing” 200k. It goes into buying out her teaching, paying for research assistants, computer time, travel, whatever.

    The woman is a grifter, evil and working hard to destroy us. But she’s not siphoning an extra 200k on top of a salary into her personal bank account.

    This is the sort of thing that makes the right look retarded. So how about you shut up and leave this to the boys in long pants?

    1) inputs about physical reality actually need to be true and properly accepted by the scientific community.

    2) unsure about which characteristics we want to optomize for, and I’m not sure who is choosing these things. In fact I worry that optimization is not the right approach and could result in disaster. Maybe a more naive approach would be better

    Getting grants, and getting peers to review the paper who in turn hope to get grants, has always been a bit of a racket. What the authors are doing is the academic equivalent of that group of Somalis who took a lot of Minnesota money supposedly for feeding programs.

    Look at the paper. Video equipment rental? Not more than a couple hundred bucks. Cost of time spent weaseling and writing? None. I’m sure the two writers of the paper pocketed at least 250K each and added it to their private bank accounts.

    That Robertson bitch is especially nauseating. She doesn’t even teach physics, but the sociology of physics.

    Korban, at my local Podunk Tech there are vague hints from ordinary conversations that the preferential hiring of Blacks and women is regarded as some sort of “proof” that White male candidates had never been all that talented and had merely relied on “White privilege” to get “over-represented” in certain fields.

    Completely ignored, of course, is that preferential hiring is preferential for ideological and juridical reasons, and that a lot of institutions can indeed get by with a “good enough” candidate with the right skin tone and genital package.

    It’s distressing, and I agree, there’s not much one can do.

    I’ve become so cynical I think most people will go along with anything to get ahead and that it’s probably always been that way. Just a bunch of tools and empty vessels.

    We have the misfortune of living at the end of an impressive winning streak by the bad guys, is all. The tools will change their tunes when the wind shifts. I’d like to think they’ll be mocked and shunned when they do, but, unfortunately, you need tools to fix things.

    By the way, Stalin got good weapon development because Russia has a German minority, and he assigned all his German scientists to weapon development. Whether they were educated or not is irrelevant. Which is good, because schools don’t teach anything.

    What I am saying is that socialist ideology doesn’t mandate the kind of insanity going on in Western education systems.

    It does, in fact. Socialism is egalitarianism. Truly radical egalitarianism denies that there are differences between men and women. Given they’re identical, you ought to be able to choose whatever you want, right? It’s barely a cosmetic thing.

    Likewise, egalitarianism says everyone should be getting the same marks. First, this causes grade inflation. Obviously the E student is exactly as smart as the A student, and thus the difference between E performance and A performance must be immaterial.

    Second it causes curriculum decay. Make it so easy that everyone can be an A student with minimal effort, because showing there’s differences between E students and A students is heresy. Speaking of intelligence, there also can’t possibly be any difference between the hardworking and the lazy, except maybe the “home environment.” Having standards reveals differences, and then you have to stone the apostate who upheld a standard. Judge not, lest ye be judged.

    That kind of insanity never went in any country of the former socialist bloc.

    The USSR was bad at being socialist because Stalin stoppered it. The USSR was a Fascist country, but Stalin was anti-Fascist. Stalin was a cynical operator; he understood the point of Fascism was to put psychopaths in power. He was Fascist until he got his, but since he understood the point of Fascism, he immediately (and violently) put a stop to it before anyone else could get theirs over his dead body.

    Kinda similar to the way modern China praises Mao at every opportunity while doing the opposite of what he preached whenever they can get away with it. China really leans into being anti-Fascist, though. Stalin couldn’t go all the way since his own power was based on some level of Fascism.

    P.S. before Prussia, schools still didn’t teach anything you wouldn’t have learned anyway. They were for lazy parents who couldn’t be bothered to do it themselves, which is why they were such a niche product.

    It happened because you, and everyone like you, didn’t mind their own business.

    I’m retired after a long career as a professor directing research in biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular genetics at a major state flagship university, who has served on NIH and NSF study sections as well as being a peer reviewer for numerous professional journals in these sciences

    Shouldn’t have. What you should have done is immediately recognize that “peer review” is a fraud, declare the institutions using it (all NSF-funded scientists) to be non-scientists, and left to found or join a fully separate institution.

    As a scientist, you should know that nothing is true until it replicates. Who replicated the effectiveness of the NSF structure? Who validated the peer review system?

    Q: Why are we running phase I trials on humans?
    A: The humans are so incompetent they deserve it.

    P.S. I shouldn’t have to say but probably do: Federal money isn’t just money, it’s poison. Literally an addictive drug. They control you by threatening to send you into withdrawal. Nearly bit-for-bit identical with feeding a child on pure sugar. “Mommy, I have a tummyache.” “Oh sweety, you must not have had enough sugar yet!”

    The USSR was bad at being socialist because Stalin stoppered it.

    What do you mean they were bad at being socialist? You mean they didn’t care about the people?

    Well that was part of the Marxist plan. No individual rights and take power through violence. Kill anyone that gets in the way. Personal welfare was never a concern. An individual means nothing so individual suffering means nothing as well.

    Stalin dropped Marxist economics because they failed. They switched to state monopoly capitalism out of necessity.

    Karl Marx may have written lengthy books but his economic plans were extremely simplistic. Basically take the state by force and POOF a worker’s utopia will appear once everyone is freed from the chains of capitalism. For proof just ask any Marxist as to how Marx planned on replacing supply and demand. Like what exactly is the replacement.

    They won’t have an answer. Marxists just assume that Marx figured it all out in one of his books. It’s a very cult like mentality that assumes leader genius knows what he is doing. Anyone who asks questions is clearly just a reactionary anti-Communist traitor of the working class. See? Instead of answering questions you just get rid of the people asking them.

  103. As you have probably heard, the hard sciences are full of “white supremacy.” I have always wondered how math and physics could be racist

    Logic and objectivity are white supremacist concepts, which impose on BIPOCs the patriarchal notion that there is a single “correct” answer to questions. BIPOCs are gifted at non-linear thinking, but whites belittle that more creative way of thinking. whites [always lower-case] commit genocide by insisting that 2 + 2 is four because they lack the inner vision and the creativity to see 2 + 2 may be four, or three, or one million depending on the feelings and experiences of a BIPOC, whose freedom of thought is constantly threatened by the white gaze.

    No, earlier, both Liebnitz and Newton explored and wrote the basics of the mathematics of asymptotic and increasingly infinitisemal changes in the 18th century.

    I recall when I was about ten, the maths teacher asked ‘What is the result of dividing by zero?’

    After a little thought, I put my hand up and said ‘infinity’. The teacher, being a good teacher and literate in mathematics, said, ‘That is a good answer, but not correct.’

    It depends on the sign of the zero. Since there is no such thing, teacher was correct.

    Always asymptotic.

    On many early pocket calculators, one could put them into an endless loop by entering a division by zero. That was fun.

    For the LED ones, you could hold them near an AM radio, and enjoy the looping noise.

    All calcator makers eliminated that, but you could still get similar effects from programming a TI LED calculator.

    Thanks for your thoughtful post TKK. I appreciate them.

    About fifty years ago there was a series of five thinly veiled allegorical movies, a franchise really, that were made which laid out what was intended for humanity, in particular what’s been planned for Euros (ie ‘Whites’).

    [See comment link below (below ‘More’ at the link will tell you the name of the movie franchise if you want to skip ahead).]

    The scriptwriter of the first 1968 movie (of the five ultimately produced) was Michael Wilson, linked below, a literal Communist whose very next screenplay would be Che! (for Che Guevara of course).

    Everyone else involved in the creative aspects of the project, ie the original 1963 book writer the franchise was based upon, it’s English translator, and the scriptwriter of the latter four of the five movies, all had British intel backgrounds.

    The second scriptwriter after Wilson, to be specific, had been a Political Warfare specialist with British intel, ie the wartime British SOE (Special Operations Executive).

    You’ll almost certainly know the franchise I’m writing of, though if you’re like me, the background behind it might surprise you.

    I’m really impressed at how easy it is to distort human thinking in general – especially given that Western forms of medicine, mental healthcare, and sociology are ad-hoc at best.

    But I’m especially impressed at how easy it is to get women to buy into a narrative, and then proceed to have them destroy the world around them – something about not ever having to take responsibility for their actions, I suppose.

    I’m doubly impressed at how easy it is to get [some] African American [selected and promoted] leaders to think they are acting rationally, whereas they are actually DSM-style ‘crazies’. And also, to plant a thought pattern in African American urban youth to blame ‘whitey’ for uncontrolled psychological thought patterns of looting and destruction, even though in the great majority of cases the run of the mill ‘whitey’ doesn’t have the power to affect their grievances or lives.

    Weird, I think …

    Science is based on replication.

    It doesn’t need to be destroyed. It has zero credibility to begin with. Hasn’t replicated. Refuting it is a major error; you are suggesting it has earned any right to be taken seriously.
