Killing for science. Killing for fun. What’s the difference?

Japan has to stop capturing and killing whales under its whaling program in the Antarctic, called JARPA II, the International Court of Justice has said.
In a judgement issued in The Hague in the Netherlands today, the U.N. court has ordered Japan to revoke existing permits to catch whales for scientific purposes and to stop granting such permits in the future. The ruling is a victory for Australia, which filed court proceedings against Japan’s whaling in 2010, arguing that it breached international obligations.

Antiwhaling critics say that Japanese whale research is a fig leaf for commercial hunting, as whale meat can be sold to cover research costs. Japan counters that its whale meat sale is not profitable and that it needs to take and kill whales to study the animals and their potential as a food source. (1)
Notice the real problem here: Not that Japan kills to eat whales. But that Japan claims that it kills for science!

Notice the different criteria used: Killing for eating is not good. Killing for science is!!!!

In the era of scientism, what is natural is condemned while what serves the new religion is hailed as “good”!

Ecology is about balance. If one species eats another, does that constitute “unbalance”?

I say let’s stop being hypocrites!
I say stop killing in the name of science!
I say let’s not save another whale in the name of any science!

I say kill all the whales and eat them!
Happy hour!
In the name of us!

Science has secrets!? No no no no no!

Japanese scientists and academics are warning that legislation threatening prison terms for those who divulge and publish what the government deems a state secret threatens academic freedom and the public’s right to know. (1)

Hypocrites!

You never help by lying!

Scientific secrets in the form of government or industrial secrets have for a long time been held… secret! Try to ask for the exact composition of the solution used to copper plate PCB holes and tell me if you find something in… Google.

Hiding behind our finger does not help to tackle the real problems of science and industry relations.

Knowledge is NOT power… (or: 知識は力ではありません) :)

Taro Aso said that bankers in Japan had not been able to understand the complex financial instruments that were the undoing of major global players in the 2008 crisis, so had not bought them.

“Many people fell prey to the dubious products, or so-called subprime loans. Japanese banks were not so much attracted to these products, compared with European banks”, Mr Aso told a seminar in Tokyo.

“Managers of Japanese banks hardly understood English, that’s why they didn’t buy”, he said. [1] (!!!)

Who said knowledge is power?

In this case, LACK OF KNOWLEDGE proved life saving! 😛

Mind washing on small children: The new hope…

Japanese history textbook: Only a footnote on the Nanjing massacre…

You will be shocked at how much your child’s education is directed…

Take Japan for example.

A country the citizens of which cannot quite understand why their neighbours hate them. A country which still wants nuclear energy, despite the fact that it is the only country which was hit by a nuclear bomb.

The solution of these mysteries can be surprising…

The history textbooks in Japan have extraordinary examples of mind control attempts… In a textbook of history in Japanese schools…

  • There was one page on what is known as the Mukden incident, when Japanese soldiers blew up a railway in Manchuria in China in 1931.
  • There was one page on other events leading up to the Sino-Japanese war in 1937 – including one line, in a footnote, about the massacre that took place when Japanese forces invaded Nanjing – the Nanjing Massacre, or Rape of Nanjing.
  • There was another sentence on the Koreans and the Chinese who were brought to Japan as miners during the war, and one line, again in a footnote, on “comfort women” – a prostitution corps created by the Imperial Army of Japan.
  • There was also just one sentence on the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

“I wanted to know more, but was not quite eager enough to delve into the subject in my spare time. As a teenager, I was more interested in fashion and boys”, says a student. [1]

Next time your kid comes back from school, try to tell him that there is more than meets the eye in one small sentence… Sometimes whole nuclear bombs can be hidding inside them…

GOCE, sound, universe, Green Day…

GOCE satellite

The sound of the recent Japan earthquake (which resulted in Fukushima disaster) was heard by the GOCE spacecraft, in the form of infrasounds. (1, 2)

The chilling sound of the Ural meteor which hit us some days ago, was also recorded as infrasounds by CTBTO. (3)

Close your eyes and shut your mouth. Pay close attention and you may listen to the sound of the Universe around you…

If not, just put a cassette of Green Day in the tape…
