TRUTH BOMBS: The is further evidence on how scientism affects the thinking of our scientists. When we trust science blindly and without good reason we concede our freedom and rationality.
ARTICLE: The scientists briefly known as Den Volokin and Lark ReLlez believed they had found something big. It was not data wrung from a clever experiment or a lucky field observation. Instead, the pair had constructed a model, a mathematical argument, for calculating the average surface temperature of a rocky planet. Using just two factors — electromagnetic radiation beamed by the sun into the atmosphere, plus the atmospheric pressure at a planet’s surface — the scientists could predict a planet’s temperature. The physical principle, they said, was similar to the way that high-pressure air ignites fuel in a diesel engine. If proven to be the case on Earth, the model would have dramatic implications:
