The Scientific Method, a longtime target of the left’s usurpation of Western Civilization, is enjoying a resurgence in popularity now that the CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk, has staked a claim and declared that Americans may now engage in the practice on his platform after being denied the right to do so for years, and share their findings on social media.
Because the scientific method is a Western creation, it is crucial to comprehend why the radical Marxist left rejects it. Left-wing usurpers have collaborated with community organizers, often known as street warriors, to undermine the 16th-century notion.
New York University defines the Scientific Method as “A body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge, through the application of empirical or measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. It has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.”
Theories may be examined and witnessed by others, something the authoritarian left despises with a vengeance.

Many people responded strongly to the announcement, with some supporting the decision and others opposing it.
Gad Saad, an evolutionary behavioral scientist, laughed about the dogmatic manner in which scientists were handled during the COVID-19 epidemic.
“The science is anything that His Eminence Lord Fauci says it is,” Saad quipped. “His Excellency is science.”
Musk responded by observing, “Anyone who says that questioning them is questioning science itself cannot be regarded as a scientist.”

Journalist David Martosko tweeted that Musk’s announcement has massive implications.
“Isn’t it remarkable that this is a departure from what we’ve seen for many years?” he asked. “I hope it also means it will be acceptable to examine who’s funding science and what kind of restrictions that places is on scientists.” CONTINUE READING…
