I suggest that it is okay for people to use their OWN time, money, and minds on religions, astrology, pornography, global warming, etc.
but I don't think the masses should allow people on the public dole
to waste the public's time, money and minds
looping endlessly on the pursuit of information that cannot be justified on the basic of current or projected benefits.
I suggest that using public resources to brainwash children and gullible people to loop on apple pie in the sky concepts is an evil and counter-productive thing to do.
I also suggest that the masses have been brainwashed by the government and the Mass Media to amplify the value of certain things like relativity, global warming, Iran, Iraq, WMD, T&A, public education, war, etc.
and to attenuate the value of things like manufacturing, egineering, mining, transportation, religion, stable, critically-damped, cultural evolution, examination and reflection, etc.
Self-serving people and institutions do NOT want you to examine, reflect, and EVALUATE before expending time, money and minds.
They condition you like Pavlov's dogs.
"pie in the sky 1. a future reward after death, considered as a replacement for a reward not received on earth. 2. having to do with a hope for a special reward."
Should the investment of time, money and minds be based on "pie in the sky" or on things that benefit people and can be evaluated?
Regarding my pal Sam Wormley's comment: "Actually Potter, it is you that fixated of disparaging a fruitful tool of physics that *you failed to learn*. It's that simple!".
I am fixated on WORKS, not WORDS.
Compare the WORKS and WORDS of the Newton, Maxwell, Watson/Crick DNA models to the WORKS and WORDS of the Relativity model.
