WHAT A SHAME- A look at the low points in the modern media. PSEUDOSCIENCE ON TELEVISION- LOGIC AND THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD NEED NOT APPLY. PT 15.

What do They all seem to have in Common?

It seems that the One Common Trait Possessed by Fans of Pseudoscience T.V Shows is a Belief that all Opposition is some form of CONVOLUTED PLOT TO HIDE THE TRUTH FROM THE "PUBLIC."

This Makes Them, and CONSPIRACY THEORISTS, THE POSTER CHILDREN FOR IRRATIONAL AND ANTI- SCIENCE BELIEFS THAT DO NOT NEED TO;

-  SUPPLY PHYSICAL EVIDENCE, THAT CAN BE EVALUATED PROPERLY THROUGH STUDY AND TESTING. 

-  OBEY THE RULES OF LOGIC AND CRITICAL THINKING.

-  JUSTIFY ANY VIOLATION OF NATURAL OR PHYSICAL LAWS.

However, it's more than just that.  To Them, the Only "EXPERTS" IN ANY FIELD
OF SPECIFIC INTEREST, ARE THOSE WHO SUPPORT IDEAS THAT THE "TRUTH" IS BEING "SUPPRESSED."  In Fact, if you listen to the DIALOGUE ON ANY OF THESE SHOWS, you will often find a DISJOINTED AND MEANDERING SET OF "FACTS" TO SUPPORT A SET OF BELIEFS THAT FOLLOW NO RATIONAL PATTERN.  MANY TIMES THEIR OWN "THEORIES" OF FACTUAL DATA BEING WITHHELD BY "THE POWERS THAT BE" CONTRADICT ONE ANOTHER.

This Way of looking at the World goes Hand in Hand with One Other part of the Human Experience.  In Many Cases, it is EXACTLY THE SAME WAY PEOPLE CHOSE OR SELECT THEIR POLITICAL LEADERS.  Why is That?

Like PSEUDOSCIENCE, POLITICS IS OFTEN A CASE OF "STYLE" OVER "REALITY."  TO BE MORE PRECISE, IN BOTH CASES;

-  IT IS THE IDEA THAT TO BE POPULAR OR SUCCESSFUL IN EITHER FIELD, IS A PROCESS OF PROMOTING OR PRESENTING TO...

... THE CITIZEN OR VOTER IN THE CASE OF SELECTING OR SUPPORTING CERTAIN LEADERS.

... THE VIEWER, IN THE ATTEMPT TO BRING IN, AND ATTRACT A LARGER
AUDIENCE.

... AN "ILLUSION OF REALITY." THIS IS DONE BY CREATING A PERCEPTION THAT THE WORLD IS EXACTLY THE WAY THEY WANT IT TO BE;  REINFORCING PREJUDICES, PRECONCEIVED CONCLUSIONS, IRRATIONAL JUDGMENTS AND ANYTHING ELSE TO DISCOURAGE CRITICAL THINKING, AND INDEPENDENT THOUGHT.
