Science Isn't Dead, But It Is Ailing - Part 8
by Your Raving Roving Science Correspondent [Jay Guevara]

Consider the following assertions:

Tanning bed use linked to higher risk for endometriosis in study

Vitamin C infusion may reduce sepsis death risk

Obesity may exacerbate the effects of Alzheimer's disease, new study shows.

Bacteria in the gut may influence COVID-19 severity, study says.

Scientists identify nutrient that helps prevent bacterial infection

Aspirin: Quitting cold turkey could be dangerous. "Studies have linked [emphasis mine] aspirin withdrawal to heart attacks."

The Pandemic Could Be Harming Kids' Eyesight, But It Isn't The Virus to Blame. 

Researchers identify bacteria that promote metabolic and mental health.

Regular aspirin use can lower risk for death in bladder, breast cancers.  

NSAIDs might exacerbate or suppress COVID-19 depending on timing, mouse study suggests.

Hydrogel injection may change the way the heart muscle heals after a heart attack.

Exercise may help curb migraines for people with certain triggers.

Neanderthal-derived protein may reduce the severity of COVID-19.

Higher pollen count may increase risk for COVID-19, study says. Some doctors in my area have been speculating that the high pollen levels here may account for the relative non-severity of cases in the region. But of course, reducing the immune response might both make you more likely to catch it, and also less likely to get the deadly immune overreaction we see in severe cases.

Bone marrow treatments may reverse brain damage caused by stroke.

Electricity could help speed wound healing, new study shows.

Notice the highlighted language in these assertions:"may," "could," "might," "help," "promote," "linked," all terms that appear so often in pop sci articles on biomedical research. What is the evidentiary value of these assertions? I'd say, it's nil, because if something may have some effect, then it also may not have that effect. In other words, they don't know for sure.

Suppose the weather forecast read: "It may rain tomorrow, although it could besunny, it might snow, and there could be a heat wave. That's the wrap-up for tomorrow's weather."

That clears that up, huh?

The obvious rejoinder to all such hedged statements is "Thank you for pointing out that various possibilities exist. We knew that before you started. Get back to us when you know, and don't just suspect or hope or have a hunch, OK?"

The assertions cited above result from the unholy confluence of biomedical research with "journalism," and clearly reflect the influence of "weasel words" taken from the marketer's art. Marketers use such hedged language to avoid legal liability, so that if litigation should ensue, they can protect themselves by pointing out that they didn't say the product did something, only that it helps to do something. Implicit in that statement is the possibility that the help afforded may be nugatory. (See, I'm catching on!)

Now anyone who takes such assertions at face value is, in my opinion, a fool, since even those making the assertion clearly don't repose much credence in it.

For some reason, however, some such hedged assertions are taken as gospel in some quarters. This is because the true religion of the 21st century is not any monotheistic belief, but rather health and nutrition fads. You can insult a man's nominal religion and he may shrug it off, but insult his dietary beliefs, and the matter will be settled on the field of honor. (In this contest, I've considered teeing off on the risible high fructose corn syrup cult, but decided against it because I don't want to join Salman Rushdie in witness protection.)

So far these types of health-based assertions are generally fairly harmless scaremongering to the neurotically health-obsessed, but a more pernicious variant is now extant in our race-obsessed culture.

Consider this one:  Study: Racist 'redlining' policies increased stroke risk for Black people.

Discriminatory housing practices from nearly a century ago continue to influence a person's risk of suffering a stroke, claims a new study that reveals the legacy of structural racism in the United States.

Researchers found a 1.5% higher rate of stroke within census tracts in Columbus, Ohio, most heavily marked for "redlining," compared to neighborhoods in the city least affected by housing discrimination.

Now purer, more crystalline horseshit would be difficult to find. As a voice crying out in the wilderness I shout - apparently to no purpose - first, that correlation is not necessarily causation. Second, how else might the two neighborhoods differ, perchance? Incidence of smoking? Of obesity? Of diabetes? Age distribution? Are these things not relevant to incidence of stroke? Third, what are the confidence levels on the 1.5% higher incidence? Is that significant?Assuming that the neighborhoods had the same population, that meant that if one neighborhood had 200 stroke victims, the other had 203. Seems to me that there's a lot of fuzz on that tennis ball. What was the year-to-year variance in each neighborhood? I'm guessing it's more than 1.5%. And to go out on a limb, I'm further guessing by suitable choice of years, you could find data supporting the exact opposite contention.

But that would not serve the purpose of the study's "researchers," which clearly was to use this study as a vehicle to advance a racial narrative.

As always, I denounce myself, of course. And to remind all and sundry that I long ago called "top bunk."

19 All this is because popular culture--what most people swim in--has decided that "feelings" are way more important than "facts." Hell, pop culture is hell-bend on promoting mental illness as normal. It's because otherwise people (the right sort of people, naturally) might feel bad, and we can't have that.

I have an energybalance question.

We both know that drawing the correct thermodynamic box is the key to eneergy transfers.

How is Man-made climate change possiblewhen the energy mankind generates is 74,000 (or so) times less powerful than solar energy from the sun?

And CO₂ does not count. Because the earths green areas have grown 17% in some specific time according to satellite reports.

24 If you set up a science industrial complex, with the main purpose of learning what we do not already know, it would look very little like what we have now.

Instead we have a SIC that is dedicated to advancing careers, and if you embark on a "study" that doesn't really say anything, that's a lot less important than that you are capable of having it published. And that you can bring in grants. And prestige.

It isn't ALWAYS anti-science, but sometimes it is.

26 We do live in an amazing time. Went to the doc the other day for a grapefruit growing out the side of my leg. He shot it up, cut it up, used a drill thing, squeezed out the rest of the pus then after I was done bleeding on the floor bandaged it up and off I went with antibiotics and pain meds. Nice .38 size hole in my right thigh.

100 years ago I prolly would be dead. Oh look! Another manhattan. One cherry only please.

32 the thing I always notice, is that it takes a lot of wind and notations to discredit the bumper sticker bullshit that passes for science. And that is enough to bore the idiots into waving a pasty pink hand in dismissal.

As one of my wiser writing teachers in college told us, you could tape an essay to your rear bumper, but it would not help to discredit the simplistic bumper sticker slogans out there.

He hated bumper sticker wisdom.

33 Also, there is selection bias. The tanning beds / endometriosis may (weasle word alert!) be because the largest percentage of clients of tanning beds is pre-menopausal women (the kind with a uterus and ovaries, not the kind like then PA Angel of Death working for Biden), aka the only people who might have endometriosis.

Let's say for arguments sake that the vaccines are real and they are more effective than the flu vaccine, with 30 pct of the US vaccinated with a single dose and almost 20 pct with a single dose, we have roughly than 3/4s of the country either vaccinated, recovered from COVID or of a population that is virtually immune from the virus.

So why do we still have to wear masks, socially distance and not fully open up?

The states with the most enforced mask wearing have the biggest caseload spikes.

These increases in cases are not matched by an increase in hospitalization rates or death rate.

At peak "the worst" if you had 1000 pennies we were losing 3. With the geometric expansion of alleged infections I would contend it is really 3 out of 5 or 10,000. They are using this to ram through as much wishlist shit as they can period.

Actually Buttjizz is wrong. Tesla drivers are mostly wealthy, and drive the cars mainly to signal their virtue. They likely drive relatively few miles. And many Priuses are used as cabs or for ride-shares, and the tax burden will get passed on the paying customers.

Worst hurt? Self-employed tradesmen who use their F250's to haul trailers to the jobsite, and who don't get a mileage stipend, nor can they charge mileage to the client.

157 Not only do those weasel words "might", "could", "indicates", etc. avoid legal liability, they are also a sure sign that someone is pushing an agenda. If A "might" lead to B, then it also "might not" lead to B. That this second version is seldom, if ever, considered means that the author is prejudicing for A.

If the author has to prejudice the outcome, there is no reason to bother with even examining the veracity of it: it's fraudulent. The only way around it is if both (or other) outcomes are considered, and without the lame caveats.

Here's how it happens. "A" suggests something in a paper. "B" in his paper cites "A." "C" then cites "A" and "B." "D" then cites "C" as received truth proving the original speculation.

Eventually "A" is totally forgotten, as is "B." The now gospel truth is referred to as "C's" contribution, and taught in lectures.

195 Damn. No movie thread.

Well, I watched Gojira vs. King Kong, and was thoroughly underwhelmed. I promised to inflict maths upon the Horde in the form of trying to figure out whether the epic battle the two Titans had on the deck of what I assume was a Nimitz class aircraft carrier was even possible.

So: A Nimitz class carrier displaces 100K tons fully loaded and about 79K tons empty. For purposes of this silly exercise I assume the carrier is empty during the fight. Said carrier is also about 1032 feet long.

According to Wiki (never to be doubted!) Kong in this film was 337 feet tall and weighed 50K tons. And Gojira was 508 feet tall and weighed in at a Brian Dennehy-like 90K tons.

I conclude that the addition of 140K tons of actively battling critter to the flight deck of a 79K ton empty carrier would either instantly cause the Nimitz-class ship to capsize or would drive the ship immediately below the waves.

This is not to conclude, however, that either monster might not individually be able to surf using the ship, if a sufficiently yuge wave could be found. This possibility is discounted because we know that, like "Charlie", Kong and Gojira "don't surf."

Only downside is that abomination they call a sling. She mentioned that they had a bunch of fun strapping her into it and I see why. Just a screwed up mess.

242 Speaking of science, am reading "The Return of the God Hypothesis" by Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, who previously penned "Signature in the Cell" and "Darwin's Doubt".

His latest is quite a science history lesson as well as a thorough flensing of "scientific materialism". He uses 3 recent discoveries: that the universe had a beginning, that it was incredibly fine-tuned to be able to support life from that beginning, and the sheer magnitude of digital information needed to create the simplest organism, to argue that there must have been a designing intelligence.

Highly recommended.

With modern farming and distribution practices, people are getting more good food than at any time in the past. Before, it was the aristos that got enough calories.

Now, anyone could eat right, and grow. Look at Japan and height by year since 1946.

Use your current computer to download Mint, do the file integrity test, and load a bootable copy onto a thumb drive. All you need to learn to do this should available on Linux distro sites, with "cookbook simple" instructions.

You might have to go into the Bios editor of the laptop to change the boot sequence if it does not have USB boot enabled.

392 from thenationalpulse.com:
Former Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen said the quiet part out loud on CNN this week, admitting she wants to dangle people's freedoms in front of them as a "carrot" by which to force them to get vaccinated.
Wen, speaking with disgraced anchor Chris Cuomo, said: "If everything is reopened, then what's the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine?"

"So that's why I think the CDC and Biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say, 'If you are vaccinated, you can do all these things. Here are all these freedoms you have'."
