Learn to think for yourself

A friend with a Ph.D. was talking about the recent NASA experiment to find water on the moon. She was complaining about the cost of this wonderful scientific experiment which will advance moobn science at least as much as the Apollo moon (propaganda) landings. Unfortunately most of us (citizens of the USA) understand next to nothing about science and even less about critical thinking.

I’m not talking about the ill educated like George Bush, the non-educated degreed person like Sarah Palin or the non-educated like Joe the non-plumber. I’m talking about well educated liberals (or conservatives) like my friend. No matter how much you know about your particular field you need to understand a little science. You need to know how to think critically. You need to be able to think for yourself.

If you cannot think critically….

If you cannot think for yourself….

You will be at the mercy of FOX news and other mass media owned by the conglomerates. Understand that these people are not on the side of truth. If you do not understand the methodology and the philosophy of science and clear thinking you end up believing the the universe was created less than ten thousand years ago by a cruel old man who hates your guts.

You end up imagining that you can get aids from donating blood or touching an HIV positive person. You end up imagining that global warming is not real. You end up thinking that scientist know nothing and know nothings like Rush Limburger (he stinks more than the cheese), Sarah Palin, Hoe the Plumber know everything.

You end up believing that the word elite (meaning the cream of the crop, well educated, the best a society has to offer) is a negative word.

Tell me:

If you were to chose a team to go to the Olympics would you select cripples with broken limbs or would you select the elite athletes?

Think about that.

Think….

Really think….

So why would you listen to the mentally crippled like Rush, O’Riley, Joe, Sarah and so on.

I have no problem even if you end up with the wrong conclusion so long as you

Think For Yourself!
