Is Technology Creating Physical and Psychological Hazards In The Digital Age?

Don't be limited by science, open yourself  to ideas. It often seems to me as I trawl the web for interesting new ideas for my quirky fiction that there are patrols of scientific thought police constantly watching threads ready to jump on those spreading unorthodox ideas. In the last twenty five years or thereabouts it seems that people who challenge scientific orthodxy were the modern equivalent of medieval heretics. From climate science through the though experiments of Albert Einstein himself conceded were mathematical speculations that could not be proved or even tested except by more mathematical speculations right back to the birth of modern physics with Isaac Newton's materialism, a cosmos made of atoms and nothing else, science became more like a religion, with dogmas and certainties.

To say that Darwin's Origin Of The Species did not propose evolution as an explanation for the origin of life (which it didn't) was like denying the resurrection of Christ.

Scientific research used to be the area of work that trailblazers, those with an unquenchable desire for new experience and a hyperactive sense of adventure wanted to be involved in. Now those who label themselves 'scientists' seem to have become the high priests of an ultra - conservative religion, determined at all costs to block progress that may lead to understanding that the dogmas of the past are just wrong.

Read about some of the cock ups of materialist science and some exciting and unorthodox ideas offering a fresh understanding of "life, the universe and everything ."
