An Example of How Scientism Has Invaded Our Lives

According to Wikipedia, Scientism is: “a term generally used to describe the facile application of science in unwarranted situations not covered by the scientific method.” Okay, so to understand what that means, we find that “facile” means: “1. appearing neat and comprehensive only by ignoring the true complexities of an issue; superficial. 2. easily achieved; effortless.” A Scientismist is one who practices Scientism, regardless of their cognition of their chosen path of Scientism. Forgive the Father for they know not what they do?

Scientism can be explained further to state that when the real scientific process becomes too complex, or in reality no longer fits a narrative, the human condition or human values are applied instead. It’s what most want to believe. If it feels good, do it. When we examine the “Scientific Method,” once again Wikipedia says, “The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry is commonly based on empirical or measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning.”

If this sounds complex, involving hard work, it is. And thus, Scientism abandons all of this and replaces it with something easier.

In short, the practice of Scientism promotes fantasy and mythology because it is easier to believe in lies than it is to learn the truth.

An example of this might be the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Instead of researching the history of life with wolves throughout the world dating back as far as the 11th Century, to understand why people feared man-eating wolves, it is easier to say that people became scared of wolves because somebody made up a story about wolves rather than the idea for such a story had its roots in actual events leading up to that time.

Jim Beers, a retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, calls the exemplification of Scientism as Romance Biology and/or Voodoo Science.

All of the characteristics of Scientism, Romance Biology, and Voodoo Science have invaded our institutes of “higher” learning, growing exponentially like some foreign toxic fungus. The result of this phenomenon can be witnessed with the turn of each page of any news report or “scientific” journal. This epidemic now threatens nearly every aspect of man’s life.

Recently, it was reported that wolves had attacked and killed beef livestock in Oregon. An Oregon wildlife biologist and someone described as the “Oregon wolf coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,” said that wolves had visited a ranch for years where the depredations took place and there hadn’t been any problems, apparently addressing the situation as though the wolf pack was a 4-H club.

This same biologist was further quoted as saying, “We can’t just trust anymore that (wolves) are going to come visit and not cause problems. Things have changed in that regard.”

Maybe the biologist could intervene on behalf of the wolves and suggest a “Time Out,” to give wolves the opportunity to reflect on their actions. The absurdity of the statement should stand alone and speak volumes of the errancy of today’s society, but it doesn’t. Someone must try to point out the error of their ways…for whatever that might be worth.

What we see is the exemplification of Scientism and the useless crap that is being used for brainwashing purposes at all levels of wildlife biology and wildlife management, and thus a filtering down throughout all society. Whom do we excuse as evidently this biologist’s bubble has been burst due to his perception that Romance Biology’s version of wolf behavior didn’t happen the way the books taught him it would. He believes that because wolves attacked livestock, “Things have changed in that regard.” Are you serious?

Historic document after historic document reveals that wolves systematically attack and kill livestock – sometimes for food and sometimes for bloodlust. I recall that during the many meetings and comments gathered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prior to the introduction of wolves into the Rocky Mountains, all efforts to convince the Feds, even with historic documentation, that wolves don’t play fairly was totally disregarded. I said then that one day people would have to learn the hard way. And here we are. Yet, we see one biologist, a good representation of all wildlife biologists, who is of the belief that wolves attacking livestock is a “changed” behavior in wolves. No wonder nobody is willing to consider that wolves also attack and eat people.

Scientism disregards the complications of gaining knowledge through truth. It is easier to accept the false belief that wolves don’t attack people or livestock. When events reveal real wolf behavior, somehow this is perceived as a new event, a change in behavior that somehow must be dealt with. To them, it is not the wolves’ fault. Lacking, by choice, any knowledge of what it is and has been like for centuries to “learn to live with wolves,” ignorant and misled people think wolves attacking livestock is a rogue event.

Real wolf scientists, for centuries, have related the dangers associated with aggressive wolf behavior. For those interested in truth, libraries abound with books and documentation of wolf attacks on people and livestock. It is obvious that over the years, man’s knowledge and the processes used in employing that knowledge have changed. These changes have resulted in what I now call Scientism and some call Romance Biology and Voodoo Science.

How anybody chooses to perceive wolf behavior, will not ever alter the historic behavior of wolves. Perceptions have changed but wolf behavior basically remains the same throughout all time.

100-Plus Years to Realize What Settlers Learned in an Instant

*Editor’s Note* – I’ll never cease to be amazed at ignorance and how deeply ingrained into our society it is….or, this is simply a good money-making, job-security undertaking – “managing” wolves and acting stupid.

As settlers moved West, it was only a matter of hours before they figured out wolves were a problem. Add a few days to that and they soon realized killing one wolf caught with its paw in the cookie jar, didn’t stop wolves from attacking and killing more livestock…and sometimes people.

Push the clock ahead around over a hundred years, and brilliant, well-indoctrinated wildlife biologists, through ten years worth of data collection, are beginning to come to the conclusion that killing a problem wolf here and there, solves nothing.

But, just in case you’ve been asleep the past 20 years, the American people were lied to about wolves, wolf behavior and what kind of an impact (re)introducing wolves would have on people and livestock – THEY LIED!

Refusing to consider history, both in the United States and around the world, lying wolf pimps pushed for a (re)introduction – it meant millions of dollars. Ignorant Americans bought the lie. Most were just psychopaths in love with nasty wild dogs.

The history is clear! Wolves and human-settlement will not work. Settlers knew it in an instance. It didn’t take millions of dollars and illegal introductions, along with gobs of time and money spent on trying to figure out what a wolf would do if it found itself living just a short jog to a well-stocked ranch. The wolves attacked and the settlers killed them. And don’t buy into the lie that people killed wolves just because they were afraid of the boogie man. If you consider the intestinal fortitude it took to board a wagon and head into basically wilderness, I don’t think being afraid of wolves was first and foremost on their minds.

After the lies, illegal introductions of diseased wolves were let go, with no consideration of the Endangered Species Act of which is their cash cow.

Twenty years later, Montana wildlife officials think they have a better understanding of how to deal with wolves that become a problem for ranchers and their livestock. PROFOUND ISN’T IT?

Pick up a damned history book! It’s a no-brainer! Cheap too.

Ten years of data looking at how wolf-pack size and distribution predict livestock attacks has helped wolf managers improve their tools for protecting cattle and sheep. Livestock deaths have shown a steady decline in the past several years.

“When wolves were just starting to come back – when they were still federally protected – the goal was get them recovered and off the endangered species list,” Bradley said. “Sometimes those removals were conservative – one here and one there, to see if that would work. What we found was those small removals weren’t effective.

”In a cursory view, Bradley’s results seem obvious: Remove a wolf pack, remove a livestock problem.

When Wolves Become Terrorists

*Editor’s Note* – Wolf advocates say that people need to learn to “co-exist” with wolves, but is there ever a point in which a line is drawn in their minds where the wolves are taking more than their share of co-existence than the people? It seems that regardless of the results of any wolf encounter, people are always blamed and never can do enough for the wolves to satisfy the totalitarian wolf protectors.

We now see, as indicated below, a family being held hostage inside their own home and limitations placed on the freedoms of the children for the sake of “co-existing with wolves.” This is wrong.

Of course idiots will say that the ranchers are living in the wolves’ habitat and by doing so they must put up with the canine predators. I wonder if these non thinkers feel the same way when violent criminals invade their neighborhoods, terrorizing, killing and causing them to lock themselves in their homes. Do they just put up with it because they are co-existing with violent criminals?

At the very basic level, no animal should be allowed to hold any person(s) in fear of the lives. To think otherwise is extreme and perverse.

Chelsea Matthews said the family is now taking extra precautions, both with their dogs and young children. “We lock all the dogs up at night and the kids have to stay where I can see them (when playing outside),” she said. “It’s not worth the risk of me sending them out of sight knowing that there are wolves around.” Matthews said it is frustrating to not be able to let her children explore and play outside without constant worry. “Our kids should get to experience all the joys of being country kids.”

Ranchers, don’t trust wolves to know ‘good’ from ‘bad’ 

*Editor’s Note* – The article linked-to below if pretty good. The lack of thinking and knowledge here, as expressed in the claim that there are good wolves and bad wolves and the good wolves are on “neighborhood crime watch” to keep the bad wolves from eating up livestock, is beyond foolish. It’s ignorant, heavily weighted down with perversion and a clear case of the result of propagandizing/brainwashing that exists at all levels of our society.

It reminds me of the same kind of claim, made by like non-thinkers, who say that wolves pick over the herd and take only the sick and lame of their prey species.

I, and several others, have contended for years that if wolves are that astute and discerning, why then do the promoters of such nonsense think this wolf intelligence only exists when it comes to determining sick and lame prey – supposedly an action that is good for the “ecosystem” and for “balance?”

We all know that wolves prefer the live fetuses of female elk. Yummy! Surely then, such brilliant animals, not only can pick out the pregnant female elk cows, but can also determine at what stage of development the fetus is that makes for the best eating.

How long before wolves evolve into understanding the inhumane treatment they have cast over prey species and begin opening up elk cafes just for wolves? Or better yet, a wolf vegan store? Maybe a place where wolves can serve up human flesh from those their friends have determined are wolf haters?

I’m sure most of us have seen the cartoon that shows two wolves hiding behind a rock, peeking out at a herd of sheep. One wolf says to the other, “Now remember. We only take the sick and lame ones.”

Now we can surely add another cartoon that shows another rock, with “good” wolves hiding behind it, reminding members of their pack that they are supposed to leave the sheep alone and run off the “bad” wolves. I suppose these adroit “good” wolves want to protect their reputations?

Have we regressed to a point that our intellect is below that of a wolf, or animals in general? It seems that a majority of people, at least in this country, choose to deal with any animal is by attaching human characteristics to them – and those human characteristics are only the ones that a person WANTS the animal to have. It’s nothing more than a perverse form of animal idealism.

Do wolves vote democratic?

I certainly hope my comments here this morning have not offended any wolves. However, I’m sure they can determine which writers prop up their political ideals and avoid the others. Or maybe they are even smarter than that.

Maybe another law?

A wolf pack that prefers elk will leave cattle alone and keep other wolf packs out. The same principle applies to coyotes, they said.

This theory sounds humane and progressive in the context of an air-conditioned meeting room at a fancy hotel in front of a group of people with no financial risk in the livestock industry. But to believe a livestock owner should trust that the good wolves and coyotes will protect their herds from the bad wolves and coyotes is beyond foolish.

Trying to tell a “good” wolf from a bad one is like looking into a box of chocolate-covered candy. You might pick the delicious caramel center, but then again, you might pick the slimy cherry.

Arctic Wolves Walk Right Up To Workers and Sniff Them

The following comment was made by Dr. Valerius Geist who has studied and documented wolf behavior. He has published his findings here.

This is an excellent video of wolves EXPLORING (ALTERNATIVE PREY)! This is exactly what wolves of the first misbehaving pack we experienced here on Vancouver island were doing! This is what wolves on Vargas Island, an hour and half from here, were doing before they attacked and seriously wounded a camper. (He was rescued by other campers). Wolves came almost as close to me, my wife and brother-in-law, as seen in this video. Please compare what these wolves are doing with my description of the pre-attack phase of wolves switching to a new prey (Humans, in this case).

This video is a treasure! Distribute it!

Val Geist

PS And remember, wolves do not play. They explore in deadly earnest.
