He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.(2 Samuel 22:10) NKJV
The popular science (SciPop) narrative of godless existence has been developed by the process of peer review, the ruler of a pantheon of deities which serve to protect the five axioms of SciPop.
Peer review is the collective will of society which promotes our existential hope; it maintains the internal logical consistency of the popular science paradigm (SciPop); it’s inductive, reductive, circular reasoning designed to rationalize leaps of faith. It’s the padded rail around the intellectual play pen where you’re allowed to think; the blind leading the blind. A ruling deity in the atheist pantheon, the subject of a lot of special pleading.– Peer Review, definition
We’re spending 5 days (July 27-31) looking at how peer review interacts with role, evidence, experimentation and narrative to establish the 5 axioms of popular science (SciPop). In each case we’ll consider the following:
- Role – Why is the axiom necessary in the SciPop paradigm?
- Evidence – What’s the SciPop defense?
- Experimentation – How was it investigated?
- Narrative – How did Peer Review violate the rules of the scientific method?
The Axioms of Popular Science (SciPop)
|1||There’s a causal relationship between space-time and gravity||Isaiah 48:13|
|2||Earth orbits the sun||Ecclesiastes 1:5|
|3||Stars are distant suns and galaxies||1 Corinthians 15:40-41|
|4||Nuclear decay has always been constant||Deuteronomy 32:22|
|5||Humanity is a product of of biological evolution||Romans 5:12|
According to the definition of the word axiom, it’s something that’s instantly seen to be true and needs no proof. This is rather unfortunate, since the axioms of SciPop aren’t seen at all and they require a vast amount of inductive rationalization. They’ve been accepted by peer review, which overrules the necessity for a fact to be factual, in order to support the SciPop narrative of godless existence. Peer review tolerates blatant disregard for the scientific method and process when it produces a result that promotes its narrative.
The first axiom of popular science (SciPop) is There’s a causal relationship between space-time and gravity. It’s embodied in Newton’s law of universal gravitation. It’s wishful thinking, nothing more than instructions for how to imagine the universe from a frame of reference other than the Earth. Dark matter is a major deity in the atheist pantheon assigned to defend this axiom. We need to know why it’s necessary.
