VSauce's video on going past infinity is what inspired my to study infinitary turing machines for my PhD
Michael is a bad example cause he actually reads but entertainment has little to do with science. Science is quite boring (until it's not) and almost nobody gives a shit about it. It has the same problem as other cultural sources of identity: the subtleties aren't worth the effort of understanding so most people take in a highly oversimplified and easy to digest version. See: the average Catholic about their own God.
My work has been been cited, and that doesn't make me happy. Money does not magically appear in my bank account because a wealthy youtuber gave credit to me.

Once a rarity, research fraud is on the rise at some of the nation’s most prestigious universities. What is most disturbing is that the fraud in question too often involves tenured professors with sterling reputations who betray the public’s trust.


Most recently, the venue was Florida State University, where Professor Eric Stewart was terminated for “research misconduct” and for the unprecedented number of his articles that were retracted.

Next in line was the City University of New York, which found “egregious misconduct” in data management and recordkeeping on the part of Hoau-Yan Wang, a professor in its School of Medicine who was working on an Alzheimer’s drug.

Earlier this decade, Harvard Business School accused Francesca Gino, a prominent professor, of data fraud in four behavioral-science papers. (Ironically, Gino’s research concerned why people lie.) Acting on a tip from the social-science research blog Data Colada, Harvard placed Gino on unpaid leave and is seeking to revoke her tenure.

After Harvard came Stanford, where the president, Marc Tessier-Lavigne, resigned after a series of investigations revealed that he had failed to live up to standards “of scientific rigor and process” and had not corrected the record on numerous occasions. The founders of Retraction Watch estimate that “at least 100,000 retractions should occur every year.” When retractions are underperformed or underreported, public confidence in research is severely undermined.

Scientists became less christian over time and this stopped having an incentive structure to value humility or pursuing an objective abstract truth since without the pressure of faith to make you value the untested and basically irrational Christian assumptions about the nature of reality and what should be valued you default to something else. either a pre-existing social or cultural value or even further default to the biological norm. Since most people in the west don’t have the former anymore they end up with the ladder. With people people becoming materialistic or giving themselves up to fanatical mod driven ideologies to try and find fulfillment and psychological assurance. they stop believing in an objective truth, and the truth to them becomes only what will give them more power. That’s partly why there have been few major scientific breakthroughs or revolutions in the past several decades. People just care about gaining more from the current status quo.
The assumption that God is perfect, but (((you))) are imperfect is what allows Christian scientists to honestly interpret data and other experimental results. Nobody else can do this other than Christians, which is why there have never been any good non-Christian scientists

Have you ever heard of Fisetin, or any other senolytic? If you are older I would recommend taking Fisetin first. Wouldn't want to bother reprograming cells a senolytic would pick up. Not that you dont need them, but a clear before doing this isn't the worst idea for efficiency's sake. But if you look at the first link, not too far down it shows that senescent cells gradually lose lose their senescence during reprogramming with OSK. picrel. We need a Cellular Reprogramming General...
Can't wait for the first paris hilton to have a purse child that they keep artificially tiny until adulthood. And then they are a fucked midget for the remainder of eternity on forever pills.
I have wondered what happens if a grown adult takes it all the way back to the single digits... I don't think they would grow smaller. But a baby held forever in time??? It will have to be after we lose certain human rights. That is not going be allowed. If you could localize it to your gums and regrow teeth that would be the next step. They can already fix glaucoma.
Humans are going to be genetically modified to make males small and females tall
If you think of the future, imagine a baby being kicked for ever.
But not really tho... I would never advocate for violence toward fucking babies.

Aliens don’t exist.

Life started exactly once in 4.5 billion years on earth. That heavily implies it’s a one off event.
If aliens don't exist then who probed my anus?
Life messed up the original conditions that allowed life to arise. Eukaryogenesis happening only once is more significant. There's probably a whole bunch of prokaryote-only planets.

>cern and other big government communist organizations are going to take all your money and waste it lavishly on themselves
They do that without even having the intention of doing anything useful with the money, clearly they are not people who have consciences
And because they don't produce anything, except Germany and they only make cars
Most of those cars are made in China, Germany only does final assembly.
Germany makes trains too, they made the crappy trains for my local subway system. Cost a fortune and they suck, good thing I never ride public transportation
The only people who use public transportation in my town are total losers, mostly criminals and hobos. We spend a fortune on those toxic vermin, all to the detriment of the decent working people who actually produce something of value for society.

>Prosocial motives underlie scientific censorship by scientists: A perspective and research agenda
>Scientific censorship is rarely studied empirically. We explore the social, psychological, and institutional causes and consequences of scientific censorship (defined as actions aimed at obstructing particular scientific ideas from reaching an audience for reasons other than low scientific quality). Popular narratives suggest that scientific censorship is driven by authoritarian officials with dark motives, such as dogmatism and intolerance. Our analysis suggests that scientific censorship is often driven by scientists, who are primarily motivated by self-protection, benevolence toward peer scholars, and prosocial concerns for the well-being of human social groups. This perspective helps explain both recent findings on scientific censorship and recent changes to scientific institutions, such as the use of harm-based criteria to evaluate research. We discuss unknowns surrounding the consequences of censorship and provide recommendations for improving transparency and accountability in scientific decision-making to enable the exploration of these unknowns. The benefits of censorship may sometimes outweigh costs. However, until costs and benefits are examined empirically, scholars on opposing sides of ongoing debates are left to quarrel based on competing values, assumptions, and intuitions.

This, people who trust God are honest people, people who think they are god are all liars
That’s exactly why it’s stable and pure.
Ernest Jones, in 1913, was the first to construe extreme narcissism, which he called the "God-complex", as a character flaw. He described people with God-complex as being aloof, self-important, overconfident, auto-erotic, inaccessible, self-admiring, and exhibitionistic, with fantasies of omnipotence and omniscience. He observed that these people had a high need for uniqueness.

That would explain so much.
Do you know what "trace" means in this context? It means that functionally no lead in existence is lead 210.
Sounds like you don't trust the experts.
>The fertilizers that tobacco farmers use to increase the size of their tobacco crops contain the naturally-occurring radionuclide radium and its decay products. As the plant grows, the radon from fertilizer, along with naturally-occurring radon in surrounding soil and rocks, transfer into and on the plant and are later included in tobacco products made from these plants.

It takes up radium, moron. Moreover any polonium in tobacco is from radon that was taken up.
>Radon’s decay product, polonium-210, carries the most risk.
So is Lead-210 still made up, schizo?
