Sun storm, laundry and science as a religion…

The largests Sun strorm of the last decades passed without any problem. Were we lucky? Or did scientists just overestimated the danger? No matter what the truth is, it is obvious that science is beginning to take a dangerous path…

False announcements for “indications” on the discovery of Higgs boson, too-early “announcements” of miracle drugs being able to cure everything (where you have to go to the small letters in order to see that we will actually know if the medicine is usefull in 178,892 years), continuous talking about cosmic dangers that will eradicate life on Earth if we do not pay more for new and better scientific equipment, marketing tricks to promote the image of science in a world where funding is more important than essence, et cetera…

Does that sound familiar? Yes, you are right! “Science” looks more and more like a (bad) religion every passing day: the grave “dangers” from which it vows to protect us are the latest trick in the hat of the abvocates of scientism.

Thank God I had that warning from NASA! I saved the laudry at the last minute from deadly cosmic particles…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
