Prediction-as-Proof Stops Scientific Progress
We’ve only touched on a small part of the problem with predictions. Prediction limits human thinking. Prediction is a great limiter. Predictions bind our minds. We all predict. We have expectations. That limits us since we don’t see what we don’t predict. Our minds fight what we don’t predict. We deny it. We don’t notice it. We think it’s a glitch. We think we didn’t see what we just saw. We’re afraid to tell anyone else for fear of what they will think. We have trouble seeing what we don’t expect. The culture persecutes what it isn’t used to. The culture considers you weird if you don’t fall in line. If we want innovation, we have to think outside the box. Predictions keep us in the box.
If only one person sees something, few others can see it. At that point, most people resist the new observation or try to suppress it. But this censorship changes suddenly when enough thinkers admit they see it. When enough people see it, the herd follows the groupthink momentum. At momentum, most thinkers jump on the bandwagon and can easily see the observation. Unfortunately, the herd also follows groupthink momentum when false claims hit critical mass. Then, those false claims become “common knowledge.” They become settled science. Therefore, groupthink isn’t a reliable way of knowing anything.
We don’t predict unpredictable observations. We don’t expect unexpected observations. And yet, evolutionists would exclude these new, unexpected observations from science. Therefore, the evolutionist definition of science would severely limit the possibility of future progress since the evolutionists’ definition would keep the box small and constrained.
Maintaining the Current Lies
Scientists run into trouble if they discover anything that refutes the long-dead story about molecules turning into people over billions of years. The establishment persecutes them. They don’t get promotions. They lose their jobs. If possible, those in power will keep them from ever working again. Teachers who teach anything against the stories of evolutionism can lose their jobs.
Once a lie becomes national groupthink, powerful forces protect it. The most powerful forces protect the most insane lies. Ungodly people have even coded certain sexual sins into laws. Those who commit these sins now get special rights and protections. An ungodly culture seeks to cancel anyone who says these sins are sins.
Establishing New Lies
As I write this, a famous billionaire is backing an education project that says math is racist. It says arriving at an objective answer is white supremacy. Unless God intervenes, the schools will add this new lie to their brainwashing agendas.
A powerful false-prophet system has been promoting something called “critical theory.” It’s a new form of racism. The news-education-government cabal is bringing racism to critical mass. It’s becoming the new normal. It’s becoming “common knowledge.” “Critical theory” is part of that effort.
At the same time, a state legislature is working to mandate “woke” ideas in schools. Teachers must teach unlimited genders. They must teach racism. If they refuse, they lose their teaching license. The schools have already brainwashed several generations into ever-increasing godless thinking. They’ve campaigned against Jesus Christ and the Bible. This is just the next step in creating antichrist strongholds in individual minds and strongholds across society. Those strongholds are likely to limit thinking and understanding for generations.
