wahn baiwee, Silent T "science editor," has no reply





I have no idea who that guy pictured is, nor whether that was his commentary put adjacent to the picture, but this isn't about "expertise" nor comparing CVs for merit-based honoring/rejection of a posted thesis.

Is that statement in any way true?  Does it resonate in any way with you?

If wahn baiwee wants to demonstrate he knows anything at all on the subjects where he pontificates, I'd like to see him respond to the image/thesis above, as well as to this.

But it's delusional to think wahn baiwee has enough integrity to do so.  He's much more likely to see the linked book was published by the Sierra Club, and assume that Wendell Berry is merely a liberal polemicist.  That's the sort of depth of understanding and wisdom I've come to expect from wahn baiwee, who is quite the con artist.


-- Karl Franz Ochstradt, who knew more in 7th grade about science than wahn baiwee knows presently at 60-something rings on his anti-Druidic trunk.

Our Mr Nigel West Dickens recently engaged in unwitting, subconscious "I need to confess" essay-writing when he pretended it was others who are busy engaging in confirmation bias.

If you start your assessment of science and nature from the perspective of "does it make a profit?", you're not even talking about science or nature. Business, commerce, banking, profit -- these are man-made constructs laid on top of nature. The fact that humans laid such intellectual and operational constructs on top of the natural world that consists largely of living beings other than humans does not mean human thoughts and views are the only things that matter.

Old man Dickens starts from the Economics perspetive. That's neither science nor biology being understood from the very beginning.

Chet, I'm sorta worried about your imprecision here.

Physician, heal thyself.

To make the medical simile/metaphor apply well to Wahn Baiwee, wouldn't it be:

Quack, stop pretending you're a licensed MD.

Don't you agree?

Not trying to tell my lawyer how to do his job, or anything. Just making sure Baiwee is properly deconstructed.

You mean to say that a B.S. in Biology doesn't count unless its 4 years of study concentrate mainly on Marketing, Economics and Business Administration, and their subsets of bioproduct entrepreneurship, psychological warfare (advertisement, trade dress, copyright, trademark, and general salesmanship)?

That Baiwee! He's a regular Marxist, telling us that everything we thought we knew about science ("capital") was wrong, and instead of what we think we know about the natural world (finite resources, interconnectivity both among living beings and with those finite resources, mankind's "business" operations have negative effects on the ecosystem) we should be asking, "does it make a profit?" and nothing else.

Such a revolutionary.

Hal, thanks for that improvement. Haste made demi-waste. Nice cleanup.

Karl,

Can you imagine a university curriculum designed by Nigel West Dickens?

Or would it be easier to just say, "how about George Mason University" or "University of Chicago," and be done with it?

Or maybe, wherever the mythical Michael J. Smith teaches.

But Chick-a-Go-Go can claim Allan Bloom, and even other noted prominent academics who enjoy support from Donkeys, progressive and otherwise.

Where was that Leo Strauss guy stationed during his mindfucking docent-ish tenure?

Paul Behrer said...

Karl's too lazy to google or wiki today, Chet.

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

No, I've read the wiki on Strauss, it's like a Pentecostal's biography of Jesus Christ.

I just couldn't remember for sure if it was Chick-a-Go-Go.
