The arrogance and foolishness of science continue to march on. As I was scrolling through Free North Carolina I came across a post on the discovery of a fish thought to be extinct. Don’t get excited. It is not current events because the initial discovery took place in 1938. I had heard about it before but I didn’t realize the knowledge went back that far. According to science the fish had been extinct for hundreds of millions of years, until it wasn’t.
That’s okay. Anyone is entitled to make a mistake. Then they decided to double down as Lords of the Universe. The article says,
“...marine scientists are calling for reinforcement of conservation measures to protect the fish that dates back 420 million years.”Of course they are and I assume it will require more government. Now I ask you, if this fish has managed to survive off the radar for 420 million years, what do scientists think they can do to add to that record? It is like trying to find a way to preserve cock roaches from going extinct.
I guess scientists are like any other political animal. They need to be needed. It is safer for all of us if they focus on the coelacanth instead of putting their energy into global warming, over population and economically feasible renewable energy. Let them continue to play behind the curtain while life in Oz goes on.
