“Science Is Used as Propaganda to Intimidate People, ” Fermilab Physicist Admits

Propaganda has thrived in many times and cultures. Ours is no exception. Image courtesy of Wikipedia.

Steve Krstulovich, a particle physicist with Fermilab, had some interesting things to say at a recent faith and science conference at Evangel University in Missouri.

He spoke about particle physics and cosmology, for instance on string theory, gravitational waves, and black holes:

"At Harvard, string theory was called 'postmodern physics.' If there was to be no more reliance on experiment to check theories, and math sufficed to explore laws of nature, we had entered the period of postmodern science."

He went on to say:

Some sociologists and those in the humanities have claimed that the scientific community is no more rational or objective than any other community of human beings. They argue that claims about how science works are mainly propaganda designed to intimidate people into giving them power, and they say that science is driven by the same political and sociological forces that drive people in other fields.”

Quite an admission. When it comes to Darwinian evolution, the use of propaganda is very obvious. Storytelling often trumps facts.

“Postmodern physics” seems to follow the trail that Darwin and his followers have blazed.
