The Science Of Mistaking Fiction For Fact

Those clowns at NASA are at it again, phishing for research grants by mixing fact and science fiction. This time they think they have discovered a planet orbiting a nearby star, that may be ripe for colonisation by humans. Before we know it that retatd Brian Cox will be jumping up and down on our television screens, babbling about how we must spend a trillion zillion pounds on getting to this planet (or phenomenon that might be a planet, because it will be so exciting to explore space and science is just so fucking brilliant!

Well as usual the reality is not quite a brilliant as the science.

from RT:

NASA has just discovered a potential “super-Earth” outside our solar system which is located comfortably inside its star’s habitable zone, meaning it could be ripe for human colonization.

While monitoring the star named GJ 357, which sits just 31 light years away in the constellation Hydra, the space agency’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) caught the star dimming every 3.9 days, indicating the presence of at least one transiting exoplanet.

Did you catch that distance. 31 light years. It takes light, moving at 186,000 miles per second thirty one years to get here from that star system. So travelling at a tenth the speed of light it would take us 310 years, 4 lifetimes, to get there. What a disappointment it would be if the great, great, great, great grandchildren of the astronauts who set off finally arrived to find a barren lump of rock.

And that’s if we could travel at a tenth the speed of light or 18,600 miles per second. If only. At the moment our fastest spacecraft will get up to 15 miles per second. And at that sluggish pace it would take over 300,000 years to get there. I’ve explained it all previously HERE

In spite of not needing to know much rocket science to work that out, (I did calculate the number precisely, in my head, without needing a calculator or even a pen and notebook,) I know from experience that pointing out that little snag to scientists would earn me only ridicule. “You don’t understand science,” they would say and call me an ignorant clown, a dinosaur or an arts graduate. Such things don’t bother me, but sometimes one feels trying to educate such deluded window lickers is just not worth the effort.

What we have to do, those of us lucky enough to live in nations that maintain an illusion of democracy, is take back power, vote against the establishment parties and for the realists, the people who seem competent enough to tacke the problems we have here and now, instead of spending our hard earned cash on funding lunatics to chase their impossible dreams. There is no point in exploring space, the cluer is in the name, there’s nothing there.

These NASA scientists and the saience fan boys like Brian Cox and Bill Nye the Science Guy need to go back to junior school, learn basic arithmetic and then work out exactly how long it would take us to get to the nearest star, Proxima Centuri (about 4.25 light years from the sun,) in a vehicle powered by any technology likely to become available to us in the foreseeable future.

Never mind the ‘warp speed’ engines proposed by theoretical physicists that would hurl us through space at many times the speed of light, what is possible in theory may look achievable when you work it out in equations on a computer screen, but doing it for real is a very different proposition. And currently so far beyond reality it is on a par with anything in Star Trek or Star Wars.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again:

Scientists are wankers.

Aliens Are REAL! Sci Fi Film Was A Documentary Says Star.

I love the Before It’s News Website More and More. Take this headline post today for example:

“Former wrestling superstar ‘Rowdy Roddy Piper’ has dropped a bombshell via Twitter, the movie ‘They Live’ was a documentary. “They Live” was a John Carpenter 1988 film that starred Piper as a drifter who fended off an alien invasion and according to recent ‘Rowdy Roddy’ tweets, the movie was not science fiction but actually a documentary. If you don’t remember, Rowdy Roddy’s character was armed with special sunglasses that allowed him to see the aliens walking among us, secretly controlling the media, banking and the government as shown in this first video and second video below. Does Rowdy Roddy know something that we don’t know and is this proof that aliens actually DO control most of our society?

Read full post with Rowdy Roddy Tweets and see a demo of his Alien Spotter sunglasses (which look like ordinary Ray Bans to me)HERE

He Who Controls The Spice Controls The Universe

Just change the word spice into food and Frank Herbert’s words from the Dune science fiction novels seem frighteningly prophetic…

‘The German Minister for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, Ilse Aigner, said “I have come to the conclusion that there are legitimate grounds to accept that genetically modified corn from the MON810 strain constitutes a danger to the environment.”

MON810 is mostly cultivated in the EU for animal feed – and is now due for re-authorisation under EU rules after the expiry of its ten-year license. Besides Germany, five countries have already banned the planting of it: France, Greece, Austria, Hungary and most recently, Luxembourg.’

Meanwhile the United States of Obama land is passing laws that protect Monsanto from prosecution over damage to the environment or human health arising from the cultivation or consumption of their untested, scientifically adulterated seeds and the crops produced bt them.

Age Of Certainty

Age of Certainty is a new anthology from Rebel Publishers

Age of Certainty gives ten authors’s(including your truly) answers to the question, “What if God existed?”

Suppose the theory is true that we’re biologically hardwired to believe in God – Brandon H. Bell wonders if that’s evidence enough that He is objectively real. … Imagine the traditional, Western version of God – now imagine along with Patrick Evans if the God revealed tomorrow has absolutely nothing to do with any of that. … David J. Fielding introduces a character who wouldn’t hesitate to kill God for the evil He has brought to bear, even if the result is just another form of an absence of good. … and Nebula Award laureate James Morrow asks if God would exist in the absence of misleading proof planted by a talking, time-traveling cyborg tortoise who shoots lasers out his eyes.
