(NaturalNews) The very reputation of so-called "science" has been irreparably damaged by the invocation of the term "science" by GMO lackeys, pesticide pushers, mercury advocates and fluoride poisoners who all claim to have science on their side. It seems that every toxin, contamination and chemical disaster that now infects our planet has been evangelized in the name of "science."

Where "science" used to be highly regarded in the 1950's, today the term is largely exploited by pharmaceutical companies, biotech giants and chemical companies to push their own for-profit agendas. Actual science has little to do with the schemes now being pushed under the veil of science.

To make matters even worse for the sciences, many so-called "science bloggers" have been revealed to have financial ties to the very same companies whose profits are shored up by their activities (http://www.ageofautism.com/2010/08/the-new-y...).

Rather than defending any sort of scientific truth, science bloggers have become the internet whores of Big Pharma, Monsanto, pesticide manufacturers, chemical companies and toxic mercury factories. There's hardly a dangerous chemical in widespread use today that the science bloggers haven't venomously defended as safe and effective. Many are just blatantly paid off by corporate entities to run around the internet pushing GMOs, chemicals and vaccines.

This realization has caused the science bloggers to be widely ridiculed by intelligent people who see right through their thinly-veiled (but well-funded) disinformation campaigns. Where science bloggers once had credibility, they now are seen as intellectual prostitutes for dangerous corporate agendas that benefit powerful companies at the expense of environmental health and human health.

If they weren't doing all this in the name of science, it wouldn't be so bad, actually. If they called themselves "corporate whore bloggers" instead of "science bloggers," their actions wouldn't be so harmful to the reputation of science itself. But, to the great detriment of actual science, they insist on calling themselves "science bloggers."

Now the reputation of "science" itself is suffering

Because the for-profit GMO sellouts, poison pushers, vaccine zealots and corporate front groups continue to conduct their activities under the false name of "science," the term is losing its meaning. This should be cause for alarm among those who practice legitimate science. (Where are the astrobiologists when you need them?)

As we've seen all too frequently, "science" can be easily distorted or exploited to achieve a desired political or profiteering goal. But the ruse is rather apparent -- the public is awakening to the science fraud and learning that the term "science" doesn't really mean what it used to. It's suffering a loss of reputation to such a degree that the term "science" no longer means a system whereby intellectually honest people search for the underlying truths of how nature operates. Today, "science" is used not to search for truth, but to distort the truth.

Replace "science" with "fraud" to understand the spin

Instead of seeking knowledge and understanding, for example, "science" is used as an intellectual bludgeon to halt rational skepticism and discussion on topics such as GMOs, vaccines, mercury fillings, fluoride in the water, the mysterious deaths of animals, the collapse of honeybee populations and so on. It's a kind of intellectual tyranny that has been invoked against those who oppose any kind of corporate agenda that can be dressed up to look like actual science.

In several contexts, the term "science" has become synonymous with "fraud." As in the following headlines (replace "science" with "fraud" as you read them):

"It has now been revealed that the researchers who made up the fictitious study results were engaged in SCIENCE."

Or:

"When asked how he came up with the fabricated clinical trial data upon which the FDA approved the drug, discredited researcher Humphrey Brokendata explained he was only engaged in SCIENCE."

In fact, the vast majority of the popular news reports you might read about so-called "scientific" findings make a whole lot more sense if you replace the word "science" with "fraud." For example, imagine the words being exchanged in these headlines:

• GMOs backed by solid SCIENCE

• FDA insists its drug approvals are based on SCIENCE

• Monsanto claims the SCIENCE behind its seed technology is better than ever

• Vaccines stand their ground this flu season thanks to SCIENCE

You see how suddenly everything makes more sense on these particular topics when you replace "science" with "fraud?"

This isn't a stretch, either. The "scientific" agenda behind GMOs, for example, has absolutely nothing to do with real science. It is a corporate for-profit agenda that seeks control over the world's food supply while forcing farmers to buy seeds year after year from one centralized corporate entity. That's not science. It's just a monopolistic crime against humanity to assault the basic rights of people to be able to grow their own foods and harvest their own seeds without worrying about those seeds being contaminated with genetic pollution from genetically engineered crops.

The real science on GMOs indicates that reasonable people have every right to be concerned about the DNA pollution of the foods that feed our world. But through the blasphemous invocation of the term "unscientific," the GMO pushers attempt to characterize rational, reasonable people who hold concerns about GMOs as "unscientific." As if they didn't believe in the Law of Gravity or Newtonian physics for macro-sized objects.

The scientific community loses credibility by the day

This endless assault on common sense by those who use the term "science" as a cover for dangerous global experiments in plant and human biology will only further discredit the scientific community. When you see "scientific" doctors and dentists putting their reputations behind things like water fluoridation -- which is the blatant mass pollution of the water supply with a toxic hazardous waste chemical -- it's no surprise why the street cred of so-called "scientific thinkers" continues to erode.

This is all very sad to see, of course. I consider myself a proponent of scientific thinking, and I strongly value the Scientific Method as one approach to gaining knowledge. I'm educated in microbiology, genetics, physics and have acquired a considerable amount of scientific knowledge in many other areas. I'm currently studying M-theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M-theory) and the intersection of quantum physics with consciousness. (There's a taboo topic in conventional scientific circles for ya -- don't talk about consciousness, for God's sake! To quote Einstein, God may not play dice with the universe... but consciousness does!)

As a proponent of scientific discovery, even I have to admit that science has lost its credibility due in large part to the corporate takeover of science. Whereas science was once a popular and highly respected field of study for young thinkers, very few people in America enter the sciences these days. More and more people are waking up to the reality that many of the great evils that have been unleashed upon our world have been conducted in the name of science: GMOs, seasonal flu vaccines, plastic food containers, pesticides, mercury poisoning, fluoride in the water supply, psychiatric pharmaceuticals and so on.

Science, it turns out, hasn't saved us: It has quite possibly doomed us. The destruction that has already been unleashed upon our world in the name of science may not be reversible in the era of humankind. We may be setting ourselves up for a global food supply catastrophe due to GMOs and pesticides, for example, and literally billions of human beings may ultimately die from it. "Science" was the invocation behind GMOs and pesticides, even though in truth the whole scheme was pulled off through what can only be called "junk science" or "selected science."

Real science is a valid tool when used with integrity

Again, it saddens me to see science misappropriated in this way, because true science is a valid and valuable method by which human beings can seek to gain understanding about the universe in which we live. It is not the only pathway to knowledge, of course (a frequent mistaken assumption by those who are steeped in it), but it is a valuable one nonetheless. Yet thanks to today's corporate-led "scientific" schemes involving GMOs, vaccines, pesticides and other chemicals, the value of science itself is being rapidly lost to the intellectual tyranny demonstrated by those who destroy our world in the name of science.

Where real scientists once used to welcome debate and discussion, today's "science" advocate operate with the intellectual finesse and flexibility of a two-ton block of granite. You either agree with them or you are branded an idiot. There is no discussion, no debate, no thought and no real science involved. On so many of the big issues that matter today -- vaccines, GMOs, mercury, fluoride, pesticides and so on -- the "science" position is that of a self-proclaimed dictator (or tyrant) who believes he causes things to be true and factual through the mere act of stating them. That isn't science. It's just an advanced form of arrogant bullying framed in the language of science and carried aloft by a never-ending stream of corporate dollars.

It is, in essence, intellectual tyranny.

Science may yet destroy us

It was Oppenheimer who, after playing a key role in the invention of the atomic bomb, quoted these words from the ancient Hindu text known as the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

Today, a very large segment of the scientific community is engaged in much the same behavior: Destroying our world through the incessant and utterly unscientific advocacy of dangerous, destructive interventions that threaten our food, our waterways and the very future of life on Earth.

So-called "science," it seems, may ultimately be the destroyer of life as we know it on our planet. And yet "science" is worshipped by its followers as the savior of life on Earth. There is a dangerous disconnect in that situation. Perhaps one of Biblical proportion.

I suspect that one day a future alien civilization will study the history of humankind and attempt to determine how we destroyed ourselves. After sorting through the decomposed rubbish of the long-extinct human civilization, one alien will turn to the other alien and nod its head to say, "It seems their civilization was based on SCIENCE FRAUD."

P.S. For the record, I am not opposed to actual science, nor the use of the Scientific Method as one avenue through which wisdom may be gained. There are other methods of gaining wisdom, however, such as spirituality, meditation, the study of consciousness and even quantum connections between sentient beings. All of these non-science methods are utterly disregarded by the "scientific" community which believes so strongly in its own dogma that the brains of its top scientists have no room left for any ideas other than their own. That is, by the way, the very definition of a closed mind. It also happens to be the reason why conventional science only advances at the speed at which its dogmatic intellectual tyrants retire or perish.
