Hypocritical Ignorance in Science?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In another article that was published on this website, a reader and contributing author of this same website, left a link to a story of how “scientists” were physically tossing dead sockeye salmon from one river onto the banks to see how well the “fertilizer” causes the trees to grow bigger. As the old saying goes, “No shit Dick Tracey!”

The article more or less states that in the “natural” process of events, the dead salmon go to waste being washed back downstream. Is that a statement of fact or plain ignorance? It is impossible for me to believe that in the great scheme and natural design of things, dead salmon in a stream, caused by natural events, carrying out a natural continuance of a natural process of floating back downstream to…somewhere, is “being wasted.” For those who espouse to the theory of nature balancing itself, how can scientists┬ádeliberately disrupt the natural order, even if they believe the natural order of sockeye salmon involves “going to waste?”

Much of the hypocrisy is found in that it depends upon what species scientists decide to manipulate, even when they are disrupting the “natural order” of things, as to whether such actions are protested against and lawsuits brought.

Sometimes it just appears as though ignorance and hypocrisy are running amok rendering so-called “studies” ridiculous and flawed.
