Digital censorship?

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

There have been many examples of censorship in South Africa. The censorship of my article in Conversation is well known. Most of the math and science faculty at UCT struthiously believe that their point is proved (and their jobs saved) if they refuse to engage with me publicly. The formal math and Western science they do is obviously ostrich science: it incorporates bad church dogmas which are preserved as always by blocking critiques which cannot be answered.

Ostrich science

However, something even stranger has happened. The public and open directory http://ckraju.net/papers/has become inaccessible. For those who want to access the papers in that directory the quick fix is as follows. Please use the alternative directory “new”. That is, replace the portion http://ckraju.net/papers/ by http://ckraju.net/new/

Panel on decolonised science at University of Cape Town

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

For those colonised minds who superstitiously believe formal math and Western science are universal, there was a panel discussion at the University of Cape Town.

Decolonising science panel discussion

The key point: anti-empirical formal math is used to slip in church dogmas into science. Of course normal math (imported by Europeans) continues to be used for many practical applications as before: but that is no argument for the blanket acceptance of formal math. Formal mathematicians not only tell terrible lies about “Euclid”, they fraudulently keep grabbing credit: formal real numbers are NEVER used in any engineering application.

Another silly argument, if something “works” we must accept the whole package: blindly accept also the creationism of Stephen Hawking and Tipler’s foolish claim that Judeo-Christian theology is part of physics.

Normal math works, formal math adds on redundant fantasies about infinity, related to church dogmas of eternity. This is a con-trick.

In this way, a variety of church superstitions are slipped into science through formal math.

Decolonisation of science is achieved by rejecting those metaphysical dogmas, and reverting to normal math. It results in an easier math and better science.

The last refuge of the coloniser has collapsed.
