An introduction to the Science Wars playlist: what it’s about, what motivated it, and why it matters. My Patreon (donate per video): 🤍 My Twitter: 🤍 My vlogging channel: 🤍 Works Cited: 1] Harding, Sandra G. The Science Question in Feminism. Ithaca: Cornell U, 1986. Print. pg 113  Harding, Sandra G. Whose Science? Whose Knowledge?. Ithaca: Cornell U, 1991. Print. pg 24  pg 39  pg 80  pg 223  Däniken, Erich von: Chariots of the Gods? Notes: Note 1- Harding has also been a consultant to several United Nations organizations including the Pan-American Health Organization, UNESCO, the U.N. Development Fund for Women, and the U.N. Commission on Science and Technology for Development. Note 2- This book was published by Cornell University Press. Note 3- It is not disputed that Franklin’s scientific career was plagued by setbacks due to sexism. Nobody disputes this. However, what is highly disputable is whether Watson and Crick were motivated by sexism to refrain from sharing credit with her, or whether this was a (sadly) common example of scientists failing to acknowledge the source of their insights due either to vanity or the structure of academic citations, or both. In any event, what is not open for debate is that Harding was grossly in error when she accused the Nobel committee of overlooking her out of sexism. Note 4- Harding claims that the presence of spherical crystal lenses in Egypt are evidence for the development of telescopes in pre-colonial Africa, and cites Ivan van Sertima to back up her assertions about the Dogon. Neglecting for the moment that the Dogon lived in Mali and not Egypt, which renders any talk of pre-colonial Egyptian telescopes irrelevant to the issue, van Sertima is a pseudohistorian whose work will be covered in more detail when I make the episode addressing Afrocentric thought. ERRATA: My reproach of Harding for  may have been too hasty; she apparently was referencing Ruth Hubbard's "Have Only Men Evolved?" That said, I don't think that this error was due to my own carelessness, but to Harding's sloppiness. Making a snarky comment with a footnote doesn't constitute an argument; spell it out for your reader next time.

We will resume our exploration of the epistemologies of radical constructivists with a primer on postmodern critiques of science. This episode was particularly difficult to make due to the sheer amount of reading that had to be done to acclimatize to the postmodern way of thinking, and the attendant difficulties of compressing a tremendous amount of information into a reasonable time frame. Be sure to hit that like button, ring the bell, and share on your social media to spread this series far and wide; it’s among my most important work on this platform, and it must not be in vain. Note 1: Jacques Derrida, who was born in the French colony of Algeria, developed the techniques of deconstruction, which are broadly synonymous with applied poststructuralism. He authored such foundational texts to the postmodern program as “Of Grammatology,” which focuses on the application of deconstruction to literary and historical texts rather than scientific ones. As an introduction to his ideas, I didn’t find it particularly helpful (not least because of the atrocious manner in which he writes,) but the Online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy filled in many blanks for me and I so recommend it instead of Derrida’s originals to those who are more interested, as I am, in the postmodern critiques of science rather than its more general deconstructionist program for other kinds of “texts.” Note 2: another postmodern trope not directly covered here is differance, which entails the direct mechanisms by which signs acquire meaning. One mechanism is the relation of signs to one another via the discourse in which they are situated, the consequence of which is the infinite deferral of meaning. The other mechanism is the means by which signs differ from one another, which differance, as a concept deployed by deconstructionists, attempts to capture. Its relevance to postmodern thought is absolutely central, and hints of it will appear later in the video when talk of “boundary-drawing exercises” is encountered. For the purposes of understanding postmodern epistemology, however, differance is not terribly important; it is much more important to postmodern methodology, which is not our chief concern here, rather than epistemology- hence its omission from the video. I acknowledge it here only for the sake of completeness. Note 3: One nuance that is worth expanding upon is the fact that waves will superpose if and only if they occupy the same plane. A surface wave and a transverse wave are not subject to the principle of superposition as described here. This is relevant to the present context because there exist multiple types of seismic waves, some of which vibrate orthogonally to one another. The type of analysis I’ve suggested is limited to scenarios that resemble the following: fault A and fault B rupture simultaneously, producing surface waves with amplitudes a and b respectively. At the points of maximum constructive interference, the resulting surface wave will have amplitude a + b. In a very literal sense, the strength of this component of the earthquake is literally the sum of its parts, and civil engineers who forgo linearity in the course of their professional duties, as recommended by “Engineering and Social Justice: in the University and Beyond,” would endanger everyone in the vicinity of the structures they’d create.

Let me get your diagnosis It says you’re half the man I am And all your raps are necrosis Yeah I’m so perfectly perfect In all my careful divisions Creating identical versions While you’re “Oh I’m so different” Don’t talk to me! You’ve been around the block too many times And your duplicate splitting is constantly spitting out Four daughter nuclei? Don’t be jealous cause I’m sexy And I got two sets of phases I like to mix DNA up When I’m entering my prophase stages! You’re like your parents kid Just like a clone You see this chromosomal genetic combination’s mine own! I’m independent My chromosomes don’t need any pairs At the end there’s only 23 So your mom and dad can share and make Life! Yeah I’m the one that Gives you your offspring Though my genetic variance can create arrogance DNA’s changing from New York to Beijing... Sure, if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have kids But if I wasn’t here then you wouldn’t exist And those babies you keep bringing up? Awwww, real cute I’m the one that makes them grow So you can stop cleaning their puke!! You’re like telophase The only thing worth admiring is your cleavage I don’t want to give half of my chromosomes up What I’ve built in my nucleus is my achievement I’m like telophase too I like to kick back and unwind But I’m secretly Anaphase Pulling you apart from inside! I repair the whole body To make you grow big and strong If I wanted sex cells I would just ask your mom Hey – here’s a question! Maybe you have the answer Did you know you’re the main cause For a whole bunch of cancers? Yeah, your errors Cause a lot of conditions Ouch! Did that burn? Better call the physician Sorry! Can’t feel your burns As I can regrow skin I’ll repair tissue, build membranes To never let you in Whatever! I have Meiosis 1 And of course Meiosis 2 A way more complex process Making me way better than you Two successive divisions 4 perfect daughter cells Each one ends up haploid Is that your testes thanking me as well? And I was discovered first 1876 to be exact So I’m older and wiser than you And that is a fact My overabundance and detailed importance Makes me a bit more complex So my discovery required A lot more context I come from Walther Flemming’s Genius mind and observations Look at this cutie’s beard He’d give anyone stimulation Well one of my forefathers Had the hippest glasses and peach fuzz Gertwig was a hipster Before everybody was You see it’s me that makes the gametes So all of humanity can reproduce Gotta strive for diversity and progress So we don’t end up like you - a douche! Hey! Hey! Hey! Both our chromosomes Line up on the equator And we’re mostly stuck in interphase So let’s try not to be a haters When it comes to agreeing One thing we have at least is That both our epic journeys End in cytokinesis!
In this first volume of The Science Wars, we’ll be looking at the epistemology of radical constructivists. We will be using feminist epistemology as our case study since it was the first to be developed comprehensively, and since its structure is the template for all other epistemologies subscribed to by this camp. In this first episode, we’ll be introducing the philosophical "thought" of Sandra Harding, noting its similarities to Lysenkoism and its disturbingly heavy influence on Progressive thought. NOTES Note 1: This is a reference to Zhdanovism, the artistic equivalent to Lysenkoism. I regard such things as the Bechdel Test and The Male Gaze, along with that ridiculous recent episode in Canada where a woman of the wrong ethnic origin had her art show shut down due to outrage over “cultural appropriation,” to be contemporary manifestations of Zhdanovism. For more on this topic, watch this excellent video by Zarathustra’s Serpent: 🤍 Note 2: Steven Weinberg argues that Kuhn’s views of paradigm shifts are flawed overgeneralizations, extrapolated from a singular incident in the history of modern science (its birth) and shoehorned into every other major scientific event. He is particularly critical of Kuhn’s suggestion that Newton’s framework was abandoned after 1919, since it still holds as an excellent approximation at classical energies and is taught in every undergraduate physics course on the planet. I personally side with Weinberg on this one. For more, see his essay, “The Non-Revolution of Thomas Kuhn.” Note 3: Under such a circumstance, what would have most likely happened would be that the other predictions of GR would eventually yield results that COULD be tested, like gravitational waves. But would scientists bother looking for them? If they were laboring under the Newtonian paradigm, then perhaps not. It's a tricky epistemological puzzle indeed. Quine was one of the good guys, a man with healthy respect for science and progress. As an individualist and a believer in the demarcation between scientific method and personal values, he would never have approved of Harding's bastardization of his work. Note 4: Paul Feyerabend was perhaps the worst of the radical constructivists, though he died before the Science Wars got into full swing. His book, "Against Method," bastardizes the work of Thomas Kuhn and sets the radical constructivist program in motion. Kuhn personally disavowed Feyerabend and his radical interpretation of "Structures," though Feyerabend's biggest fanboy, Steve Fuller, chalks this up to intellectual cowardice on Kuhn's part. Fuller will be briefly touched upon in future episodes, as he too played a significant role in the Science Wars. Note 5: For more on the master/slave dialectic, phenomenology, and standpoint theory as they all relate to feminist epistemology, consult the works of Jane Flax, Nancy Hartstock, Hilary Rose, and Dorothy Smith. Note 6: As an aside, postmodernists seem to think that the more scare quotes they add to their work, the more “woke” and less philosophically naïve they seem to think they look. In reality, they come off as pretentious and specious snobs. Note 7: Daphna Joel of Tel Aviv University claims that those who search for sex differences in the brain are doing it only to promote inequality. This is a theme that we will discuss more thoroughly in a future video. The consequences of such unwarranted demonization can only be tragic; see item #20 under “Works Cited.” WORKS CITED- It was too long to fit in the description box, so I put it in the comments section below. It will appear at the top if you select "Top Comments." ERRATA- 1) I indicated that 50 million people starved to death under Lysenkoism. I should have added that starvation was largely the result of communist collectivization policies, though Lysenkoism did severely exacerbate the death tolls. For instance, the death rates during the Great Leap Forward jumped significantly and peaked in 1960-61, right after Chairman Mao introduced Lysenko's Eight Point Agricultural Plan into action. While an exact figure for the death toll attributable specifically to Lysenko is elusive, the shortages caused by Close Planting during the Great Leap Forward alone is no less than 11 million. The upper limit of 50 million assumes that all deaths from starvation in the regions that implemented Lysekoist policy were caused principally by that policy. Combining the lower limits of both China and the USSR, deaths attributable to Lysenko reach a lower limit of ~15 million; the average estimate comes out to over 30 million starvation-related deaths attributable principally to Lysenko.

In this video, we will be examining and taking apart so-called “feminist empiricism,” and expose it for the revolting pseudointellectual farce that it is. Before anything, I would like to acknowledge Dr. Alan Soble, philosopher of sexuality at Drexel University who has followed and commented on Evelyn Fox Keller’s work ever since it made the long descent from biophysics to Neo-Freudian feminist epistemology in the 80s. His participation in the Science Wars was therefore imperative; he was a great asset to the scientific realists. His two essays, “Defending Bacon” and “Gender, Objectivity, and Realism,” are well worth a read; the first is a comprehensive defense of Bacon from his abusers, and the latter a comprehensive rebuttal of the entirety of Keller’s philosophy. Note 1- I personally regard psychoanalysis, as applied to scientific rather than literary endeavours, as pseudoscience, since its primary object of study, the unconscious, is a philosophical black box. As a consequence, psychoanalytic theories are and always have been fundamentally unfalsifiable, whatever pretences to more recent strides toward empiricism its adherents claim to have made. As a consequence, psychoanalysis is at best not science and at worst pseudoscience. For a more detailed examination of this matter, see Karl Popper’s 1963 book, “Conjectures and Refutations;” his excoriation of Alfred Adler and Sigmund Freud is the stuff of legend. Object Relations Theory, which is the psychoanalytic theory that Keller principally wields against science, is a Neo-Freudian theory that differs from its predecessors in that it views interconnectivity, and not sexual drives, as the principle motivator of human behaviour. Its emphasis on the relation between infant and mother in shaping development, therefore, is more innocent than what Freud had originally conceived (but only just! There’s a lot of talk about how our attitudes toward other are ultimately based on the arrival and subsequent retraction of our mothers’ breasts during infancy, and the psychological associations that we made during these instances. Needless to say, the evidence supporting these views is weak at best.) Note 2- She is referencing the philosopher Richard Rorty’s book, “Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature,” where he offers a similarly relativistic outlook- one which likely influenced Keller. The tone of Rorty’s philosophy can be summarized with his definition of truth: “Truth is whatever your contemporaries let you get away with saying.” Unfortunately for him, however, his peers in the philosophy of science do not appear to have let him get away with it. Note 3- The original misquote was by Leibniz, a great admirer of Bacon. His misquote was not intentional and not done in service of slandering Bacon, so he cannot be accused of libel. To her credit, Merchant did not use Leibniz’s misquote in “The Death of Nature” to support her case that Bacon’s conceptualization of nature was as a woman who ought to be tortured, but her case was nevertheless based in some extremely uncharitable interpretations of quotes that had to be isolated, have their meanings stretched, and organized in such a manner as to defend her thesis. It’s a highly contrived argument; for more on this, see Pesic, “Wrestling with Proteus: Francis Bacon and the ‘Torture’ of Nature,” Isis, 1999. Note 4- Some may try to argue that the passages where Bacon refers to “shaking [Nature] to her foundations” or "hounding nature" are also examples of violent language against a female nature by the sexist Bacon. I will here have to defer to Alan Soble's paper, "In Defense of Bacon," which addresses the matter far more comprehensively and eloquently than I could in a mere half hour. Note 5- This quote appeared in the beginning of Novum Organum, which was the text that started the scientific revolution. Other examples of Bacon saying that scientists ought to listen to and obey nature can be found in Novum Organum, Book 1, Aphorisms 1 and 129. Note 6- It is not clear to me what Keller is babbling about here, since nuclear energy is by far our most efficient source of energy (and at present, far more productive than solar,) and also because I don’t know what “ecological” vs “pathogenic” medicine entails. I have the lurking suspicion that she doesn’t either. Note 7- This was in the conclusion of Indiana State University’s Philosopher of Science Noretta Koertge’s response to Helen Longino’s essay embracing ideologically oriented science. The essay, which I highly recommend, is called “Feminist Values and Science.” WORKS CITED: Pinned to the top of the comments sections below.

Get to know one of the most infamous scientific rivalries in history, known as the Bone Wars, where two scientists competed to find dinosaur fossils. After the California Gold Rush of 1848, settlers streamed west to strike it rich. In addition to precious metals, they unearthed another treasure: dinosaur bones. Two wealthy scientists in particular— Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope— competed to uncover these prehistoric monsters. Lukas Rieppel digs into one of the most notorious scientific feuds in history, known as the Bone Wars. Lesson by Lukas Rieppel, directed by Michael Kalopaidis, Zedem Media.

Box 93, Toronto P Toronto, ON, M5S2S6 Written and created by Mitch Moffit and Greg Brown Lyrics: I'll be the spark, if you'll be the flame Start a reaction that can't be contained Balance your pH by sharing my base I'll be your star, if you'll be my space 'Cause there is no distance that I wouldn't go Through spacetime and wormholes my matter would flow To the edge of the universe I'll be your G, if you will be C Or I can be A, if you will be T If there's a mutation I'll fix every base Working as your zinc finger nuclease Just like an atom, don't rip us apart Unless you want a big BOOM in my heart We can take it fast or really slow But we can't know with certainty where we'll go If at first we don't succeed, we'll try two more times So our failure's a statistically significant try Like an equation, it all works out If we balance the sides there's no need to doubt CHORUS: This is your science love song A place to start our chemical bond A research endeavour We can write the conclusion together Just like the movies I'd steal your heart But then you'd die...so I won't do that If we broke up I'd be no more I'd give up H2O for H2SO4 Take away gravity, I'd still fall for you Share my last electron in a covalent bond for two 'Cause you're like that angle, A-cute and you're smart Your labcoat and goggles go straight to my heart Except that's a lie, cause the heart doesn't feel When it comes to love the brain seals the deal REPEAT CHORUS 'Cause you matter to me

BIBLIOGRAPHY IS PINNED TO THE TOP OF THE COMMENTS SECTION. The New Lysenkoists: 🤍 The Science Wars: 🤍 In this video, we’ll be reviewing, in some detail, what it is that social constructionists believe about science, and why you should be skeptical of their claims. Along the way, we’ll learn a bit about the philosophy of science and how it all works. All networks were generated with MATLAB and were subsequently altered in MS Paint. This was an extraordinarily difficult video to make, having been released a full two months after I’d intended to finish it. So please show some love and pass this around far and wide. It also wouldn’t hurt if you’d 🤍neildegrassetyson about this video on Twitter ;) [Note 1] This is why I disagree with the notion of incommensurability; it implies that old paradigms are incomprehensible in terms of the new ones, which I disagree with. Were that the case, however, one could reasonably argue (as some, like Feyerabend, did) that there is no such thing as scientific progress; we don’t really discover anything, but only find new ways to describe things. Needless to say, I think that this is nonsense, and the superior predictive power of new paradigms, coupled to their ability to explain everything that the old paradigms could explain, is very strong evidence that scientific progress is NOT an illusion and (slightly more controversially) that scientific constructs do indeed represent something external to our minds. In any event, here are a couple of links which demonstrate the derivations alluded to in the video: From Einstein’s Field Equation to Poisson’s Equation for Gravity: 🤍 From the Schrodinger Equation to Newton’s 2nd Law: 🤍youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DOfg4tDmyVvM&usg=AOvVaw164vv0JzbXvLirV_JeuOU1 [Note 2] There is no dispute over whether social values have some influence over which sciences are pursued, and to what extent they are funded. The dispute is over whether there exist values and/or interests that are unique to particular demographics, which then play a role in theory selection and/or construction. That scientific theories are constructed is not what is presently under dispute; the question is whether they are constructed from facts in order to maximize their predictive power, or whether they are SOCIALLY constructed from both facts AND socially-specific values for the purpose of legitimating the social perspectives associated with those values. [Note 3] This is called a Motte and Bailey. It’s a specific type of bait-and-switch style of argumentation that is endemic to social constructionists. I advise you to familiarize yourself with it: 🤍 [Note 4] “Philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it” -Karl Marx 🤍 [Note 5] This webpage abuses the work of Kuhn in the exact same manner that social constructionists do; reading through it shall no doubt prove illuminating. 🤍 FURTHER READING: 🤍 ERRATA 1) Footnote  is accidentally listed twice. The second one corresponds to footnote  in the bibliography. 2) Bruno Latour is mispronounced here as "Bruno Latoy." It is actually pronounced the way it's spelled. 3) In addition to the 3 proposed operational criteria (predictive accuracy, explanatory efficiency, and optimal flexibility) for aiding in the decision between competing underdetermined models, I would like to amend it with a fourth, long-overdue criterion: rational coherence, which is defined here as that property whereby the propositions which constitute a theory do not contradict one another. 4) (to be added if additional revisions are warranted) Patreon: 🤍 Crocoduck Vlogs: 🤍
After the controversies of the 20th century about whether the sciences really discover truths about the world or only reflect the values of our culture, we need a realistic understanding of the methods of the sciences, and the scope and limits of the scientific enterprise. Social Biology, Evolution, Anthropic Principle Science has come under attack in recent years from philosophers and cultural critics who have described it as, among other sins, culturally determined, too often dependent on the biases of scientists. Haack takes a searching look at how science interacts with and is influenced by other areas of human endeavor. Science often interacts with the law in courts' use of expert testimony on defendants' mental state or physical evidence. Haack reviews the fascinating history of this tentative dance between law and science, and how in recent years the legal system has struggled to determine what scientific ideas can be considered as accepted beyond dispute. Religion and the concept of "intelligent design" also come under scrutiny. February 12, 2008 🤍
A journey to the end of time with the 5 most likely ways the universe will be destroyed Watch our podcast on "How the universe will end" with astrophysicist Katie Mack: 🤍 You can get "The End Of The Universe" song on all platforms now Be sure to check out Katie Mack's book "The End Of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking)" LYRICS INTRO Welcome to the end of the universe. Please fasten your galactic seatbelts as we explore the 5 Most Likely Cosmic Apocalypses A...poca...lyp...si? Existential dread and Euphoria can be found Here and Here In the inconsiderate vastness of space Enjoy the ride BIG CRUNCH Universal Gravity Falling fruit from apple tree Though it is the weakest force It just might kill all of us Andromeda galaxy Hurling at amazing speeds The Milky Way pulling close Colliding in a brilliant burst But if you didn’t know This violent destruction has got nothing on The Big Crunch The Big Bang blew it all apart Flying fast and flying far But gravity in its infinite range Could lead to a directional change Collapsing in on itself Surfaces of stars igniting, ouch! Explosions tear through stellar space Hot plasma in your face It’s The Big Crunch Where nothing can survive Densities and temperatures beyond measure We’re going to die More intense than the Big Bang And if gravity doesn’t win The opposite will soon begin HEAT DEATH Oh it’s getting kinda cold Which is weird for a thing called a heat death But the entropy’s only increasing It’s gonna be slow devastation Cause it turns out the rate of expansion Is way faster than we once imagined Distance galaxies wander and fade away Darkness grows as we float ever isolated All thanks to the cosmological constant of dark energy Heat death, it’s a really cold Heat death, yeah we’re all alone Energy gradients fade away Particles of matter all decay It’s a Heat Death, the arrow of time is gone Heat Death, one giant cold heat BIG RIP Of course if dark energy is not constant we get 'phantom energy' Which means we have an accelerating expansion at an increasing rate Give us the Big Rip Where gravity can’t keep up Stars and planets are pulled apart Atomic forces no longer hold Molecules break apart Atoms break down Everything explodes into infinity away from everything else And the fabric of space is ripped apart VACUUM DECAY Ever heard of the Higgs Field? We’re talking Bosons getting revealed Giving mass to our particles Writing tons of articles Giving us stability Well this field seeks the lowest energy state Like a ball rolling down a hill can’t wait But if a lower potential exists Say goodbye to our constants Physics falls apart and we get Vacuum Decay We’re in a false vacuum A false vacuum The best data suggests we’re in a false vacuum Evaporation of a black hole Could trigger change that’s out of control Entering the true low vacuum state And a bubble it will make Spreading all across the universe But it’s impossible to see this moment coming At the speed of light it’s moving, you ain’t running The final apocalyptic cascade Nature fully rearranged Incinerating everything it’s Vacuum Decay We’re in a false vacuum A false vacuum The best data suggests we’re in a false vacuum Vacuum Decay We’re in a false vacuum A false vacuum The best data suggests we’re in a false vacuum BOUNCE There’s something awry here An error or two Either gravity’s broken Or another dimension’s leaked through Cause it’s weakness, the force It just doesn’t add up What if instead of just ours there are more? Universes out in spacetime galore Influencing, softly dancing Ready to bounce Ready to bounce Oh these parallel branes are expanding to start But then fate as it goes just can’t keep them apart We’re obliterated as the scalar fields swing Into radiation and restart the Big Bang So what’s the world without you? It ends but then it cycles on through The universe born again new So tell me what’s the world without you? If another one’s bouncing in soon Now I know some of you might be saying “Gosh Mitch! All these possible endings, It’s got me scared, should I be worried?” Awh, don’t worry Most of these are predicted to happen in billions of years, if ever And if that has you saying “Billions? But that makes me feel so small and insignificant” Well…that’s because you are. So what’s the world without you? It ends but then it cycles on through The universe born again new So tell me what’s the world without you? If another one’s bouncing in soon
