Fair science

A fair practice of science

There is only one truth in fundamental science: the way nature works

Nature works in only one way. One who investigates the way nature really works, will be rewarded with their findings being replicated in a controlled environment, and eventually being applied to daily life. In this way, taxpayers will have a Return on Investment in scientific funding.

For centuries, Christians were leading in fundamental science (Basic research). These scientists observed the way nature — God's creation — works, then replicated their findings in a controlled environment, after which their findings could be applied to daily life, in fields like physics (Isaac Newton and Arthur Combton), mathematics (Leonhard Euler and Bernhard Riemann), chemistry (Robert Boyle and Antoine Lavoisier), electromagnetism (Alessandro Volta, Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell), computer science (Charles Babbage and George Boole), and genetics (Gregor Mendel — who is called "father of modern genetics" — and Ronald Fisher). By applications to daily life — based on their findings — Christian scientists provided Return on Investment to taxpayers, which we still benefit from today.

​Belief can complement science

Science is about observed phenomena, while belief is about unobserved phenomena. However, one who's belief describes the best the way nature works, will have a strong advantage in fundamental science. In this way, belief can complement science.

​​One who investigates nature, investigates God's creation

Nowadays, atheists are leading in some fields of science. Atheism is an ideology. Their ideal: There is no God. So, the atheistic ideology is a belief system based on the hope that God doesn't exist. However, one who investigates the way nature works, investigates God’s creation. As a consequence, atheists are practicing a kind of historical science rather than fundamental science: All hypotheses of the atheistic ideology can be traced back to hypothetical past events, mainly the Big Bang hypothesis and Darwin's common descent evolutionary hypothesis. As such, referring to these hypothetical past events — as well as the dating of their hypothetical findings — appears to be crucial, in order to contribute to the atheistic ideology. Such references to the atheistic ideology are found in literally all their publications, like in press releases (news items), online articles (like on Wikipedia), nature documentaries, study books, and so-called scientific publications. Such a practice is called: propaganda.

Not a single hypothesis of the atheistic ideology will ever be applied to daily life

Not being based on the way nature works, not a single hypothesis of the atheistic ideology will ever be (honestly) replicated in a controlled environment, let alone be applied to daily life:

  • Atheists are unable to replicate the Big Bang hypothesis — let alone to apply this hypothesis to daily life because they are unable to create everything from nothing;

  • Atheists are unable replicate a spontaneous appearance of life from non-living matter, because laws of nature prevent life from being created from non-living matter. For example, oxygen will oxidize destroy — amino acids before life is created. So, atheists are unable to apply this hypothesis to daily life. It takes a supernatural being — not being subject to the laws of nature — to create life from non-living matter;

  • Evolution occurs within one kind (family classification). However, Darwin's common descent evolutionary hypothesis assumes that evolution (also) occurs across family classifications, while believers of Darwin's common descent evolutionary hypothesis are unable to evolve for example microbes to plants or animals, nor in a lab, nor in simulation on a supercomputer. Let alone, to apply this hypothesis to daily life;

  • The Extraterrestrial life hypothesis — the hypothesis that extraterrestrial life may exist — is purely based on the hypothesis of a spontaneous origin of life: “If life did arise on earth by itself, it would be inconceivable that this is the only planet upon which there is life”. Not supporting a spontaneous origin of life, also the Extraterrestrial life hypothesis is not supported by Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It includes the fear for extraterrestrial life, which is spread by atheism, not by Judaism, Christianity and Islam;

  • None of the endless series of hypotheses on 'modern' (particle) physics — called the Standard Model — can be honestly be replicated, let alone be applied to daily life. It includes hypotheses like the string hypothesis, spacetime, antimatter (*), dark matter, dark energyblack holes (**), gravitational waves, Higgs boson, and the Majorana fermion hypothesis. For example, researchers of the Delft University of Technology wanted to utilize the Majorana fermion to make quantum computers more stable. However, after years of research, they have recently admitted that they couldn't find the Majorana fermion;

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) may deliver useful engineering techniques. However, engineering is limited to deliver specific solutions to specific problems, while fundamental science delivers generic solutions. Artificial Intelligence is not based on a natural definition of intelligence, as a set of natural laws. Therefore, AI is not intelligent by itself. In fact, AI — in general — is limited to perform repetitive tasks, and artificial neural networks — in particular — are limited to pattern recognition and pattern generation. As a consequence, AI doesn’t deliver a natural foundation for understanding what human intelligence is. Nevertheless, some atheists believe that the Artificial General Intelligence hypothesis (AGI) — or Strong AI — will lead to human-level AI. Moreover, they are spreading fear for human-level AI, taking our jobs or even taking over the world. This fear is not supported by Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In fact, not being based on a natural definition of intelligence, as a set of natural laws, Artificial Intelligence is unable to replace any job that requires a certain amount of human intelligence.

Like the Christian scientists mentioned above, I stand in the Christian tradition of investigating and replicating the way nature really works. I believe that life and the universe are intelligently designed. And I believe that any intelligent design can be unraveled through reverse engineering. I have identified the human language as a source of natural intelligence. And I believe that the intelligent design of the human language can be unraveled through reverse engineering, based on Laws of Intelligence that are naturally found in the Human Language.

 

By investigating and replicating these natural laws, I am utilizing the intelligent design of the human language in order to replicate natural / human intelligence in software. My automated reasoner — which is published as open source software — has results that scientists can't deliver, because their theories are inadequate to describe natural / human intelligence.

I invite anyone who is striving for a fair practice of science to join my LinkedIn group Fair Science Supporters group on LinkedIn to support a fair practice of science.
