“I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud. ” – Dr. Carl Jung It should go without saying that CSICOP (the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal) has saved science. Their clarion, The Skeptical Inquirer, or Skeptic, also did its share and we owe a massive debt of gratitude to these intrepid sleuths. It should go without saying that they have protected science from charlatans and preserved its purity and inviolability. It should go without saying because it isn't true.

So that means weeks, months, or years of time better spent elsewhere, like creating something or educating themselves, or with family, or actually doing something positive was lost on something as petty as trying to boost your image by tearing someone else's down. When a skeptic realizes he has spent all that time in vain, he tends to become defensive and rationalizes his findings or theories rather than admit he was, frankly, a fool. It is during these moments of critical introspection that they most often appeal to ad hominem attacks, slander, libel, straw men or any such nonsense to draw attention away from their folly. The common denominator between professional skeptics is that they have never done anything with their lives but inflate their fragile egos at the expense of science. History forgets them, but the damage is done.

Dogma is a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. It serves as part of the primary basis of an ideology or belief system, and it cannot be changed or discarded without affecting the very system's paradigm, or the ideology itself.
At its heart is one of the worst logical fallacies man can fall prey to wherein, paraphrasing Hitler, if a great lie is repeated long enough it becomes easier to swallow. (His name is not being thrown in casually, because we'll be talking about eugenics, or "racial purity.")
We shall cover a few of those lies and four major instances of CSICOP and the Skeptical Inquirer's key blunders and dogma, which resulted in the hobbling of scientific inquiry for decades in several non-paranormal fields: in alternative energy research, genetics, consciousness research, and even physics.
The Tacit Embrace of Eugenics, A Pseudoscience
The root of the present paradigm insists that genes determine the worth of a man. Epigenetics proves conclusively that this is not true. War and dehumanization, and all manner of evil, comes from believing your genes make you superior. When you truly come to believe you are superior to others by virtue of your genes alone, funny things happen. People that would never harm a fly now wouldn't bat an eye if they saw a black person, or Arab, or Jew, beheaded or set on fire, even if a child. They would not think twice about genocide. They happily sterilize people. They poison their food. They shut down their water supply. They rationalize murder because unlike the case with people, we are not taught to hate defenseless animals. Defenseless humans, that is another story.
Dr. Bruce Lipton, a pioneer in epigenetics and the leading expert on environment's effect on gene expression, often points out that when an organism like a cell reaches its maximum state of evolvement it connects to surrounding cells to create a larger life form. Because the need for instant, real time global awareness became paramount, humans created the internet, and created a nervous system.
“As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion
Whether we accept it or not, we are all cells in the super organism we call humanity. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. often said, and in a quote now more appropriate than ever before, "We can live together as brothers, or die together as fools." We are an electronically connected global consciousness for the first time in history. Unfortunately, there are eugenicist oligarchs out there that are like fat cells that believe they are innately superior to all cells, and the body is attacking itself.
Stem cells are created equal but their surrounding determines their role in the body, just like environment largely determines the fate of an infant's role in the world. The hijacking cells believe the body of humanity can exist without worker cells like muscle, for example, even though the heart is actually made of muscle cells, just as in the microcosm on an individual human level. That is the way cancer cells act: they completely separate from the rest of the body, hoarding its most critical resources, and are content to kill the host along with itself for a period of wild but unsustainable, meaningless growth. In the body it is called a cancer, a tumor. In the body of humanity it is called wealth inequality.
The oligarchy that is pushing a Bush-Clinton dynasty is not lost on mainstream news assets as well. Even Time Magazine covered it on May, 2014: "A 2016 Bush-Clinton Match-Up? Gag Me."
In most organisms, the body isolates the cells responsible for attacking it, and addresses the threat with healing or neutralization. It either deals with the cancerous cells or dies. We are at that point in the body of humanity where resources have to be reallocated to a natural balance because just as in the microcosmic level for humans to live, on the macro-cosmic level for humanity to exist each human being needs to be healthy and nourished to perform his or her role. All of us represent a form of unlimited potential. We are all cells in the same body, and we truly need to accept the fact to survive as a species.
"When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole. We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of xdistance. Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone. A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket."
Nikola Tesla, "When woman is boss", Colliers, January 30, 1926
Pay close attention to the video below. It is the global response to the killing of a lion by an American poacher. This is what it looks like to see humanity behave as a single, sentient organism, because that is exactly what it is.

Once again, Tesla was proven right almost 100 years later. The Internet is acting like a "huge brain" with both left and right hemispheres on fire. Left is the linear processor and analytical brain, e.g. "how do we find this moron dentist" and right is imaginative, feeling, and abstract, e.g. "because humans are animals too what are the wider implications and what can we do to change?" Look at the spread of the words "Cecil," "lion" and "dentist" within just a few hours. Here was mankind''s collective brain processing a single problem, in real time.
Cells Have All the Functions of a Human
A curious thing about cells that they have every function a human has. Cells have a reproductive system, they have an immune system, they have a respiratory system, a digestive system, etc. When the poacher, dentist Walter Palmer was targeted, individuals around the world acted like T-cells to locate and isolate the antagonist. If an alien were to see earth from afar, they could see humanity as a super organism living and glowing around a planet, they would see it emits lights and acts as one, it is now consolidated.
This is just one gauge of humanity's new brain and nervous system, it's like a functional MRI, and for reasons too numerous to list herein it is a very good thing. A cynic might say you see that kind of activity every time Kim Kardashsian farts, but realistically, the human mind is easily distracted, and we shouldn't be surprised we act like that collectively as well. The part of the brain that is keeping us alive won't bother with that nonsense, and if you are the type of mind that's into making this a kinder world, attuned to the brotherhood of man, you're simply too busy doing something important. You are in the autonomic system of the brain, you keep the heart beating. Distracted cells will change the world in their own way in due time, because we are all literally interconnected now in real time.
And so we come into the subject of environment...
The present paradigm critically downplays the role of environment in gene expression, and the reason it does so is because of a tacit and lingering embrace of the pseudoscience of eugenics. We now know the mind is responsible for gene expression as much as mutations or heredity. Real world examples of this is mind over matter phenomenon is the placebo effect. Prozac test results revealed that their efficacy was no more effective than a sugar pill unless you add side effects, which makes the patient feel it is working, so in essence it works by enhancing or triggering the placebo effect.[easyrotator]erc_82_1426632765[/easyrotator]
This doesn't mean if you are born with blue eyes you can just create a belief system to turn them brown, but what it does mean is that perception can change your biology by adversely affecting a cell's immune system. Cell membranes have protein antennae that can be activated by both chemical signals and wave forms such as consciousness, and switch on or off as protein atoms are exposed to proton or electron charges. The brain, according to Lipton, is like the newscaster and the cells are like people listening to the broadcast. Negative broadcasts create fear.
Fear makes your cells go into a protective and weakened state. The chemical signal is cortisol (fight or flight hormone responsible for stress and PTSD), for example, and the belief system that generates the cortisol is generated by thought patterns, or perception. Sustained levels of cortisol shut down the immune system, reduces conscious intelligence and eventually comes to damage brain cells in the the amygdala and hippocampus marking the direct and predictable connection between perception, thought patterns, and actual physical changes in the cells, even to the point of affecting DNA replication. A cell can't grow and remain in a protective mode at the same time. Every day we lose billions of cells, cells that can't be replaced by cells that are in a protective mode and not growing.
This is how stress shuts off the immune system, and why people get sick when they are stressed. Stress hormones are so effective in shutting down the immune system that doctors give organ transplant recipients stress hormones to curtail the patient's ability to destroy the new transplant.
In fact, not only is commercial science convinced mind over matter exists, as in this example they rely on it as a given while knee-jerk skeptics are still saying belief systems can have no influence in biology.
"Gerbic's about to get a spoonful of my foot in her ass..."
Mary Poppins wants her hat back, and Susan Gerbic, a clinical study in projection with a startling lack of critical thinking.... has issues. She is actually giving a class on how to game Wikipedia to discredit those who practice what she, a self-styled "authority," perceives as pseudoscience. Clearly she believes that this is how real scientists act: rather than conduct experiments and write up objective studies for peer review in academic venues, they troll Wikipedia pages of scientists they don't like and slam them anonymously as "guerrilla skeptics." Magician James Randi's "activist skeptic" is, sadly, in the delusional end-stage of Pathological Disbelief, and ironically is oblivious to the fact that Randi actually does believe in the paranormal but is just protecting a trade secret (the International Brotherhood of Magicians is an occult fraternity, as discussed later).
Characteristics of scientific skeptics, according to Beaudette:
1. They do not express their criticisms in those venues where it will be subject to peer review.
2. They do not go into the laboratory and practice the experiment along with the practitioner.
3. Assertions are offered as though they were scientifically based when in fact they are mere guesses.
4. Satire, dismissal and slander are freely employed.
5. When explanations are advanced ... ad hoc reasons are constantly advanced for their rejection. These reasons often assert offhand that the explanation violates some conservation law.
Why the Skeptical Inquirer has a Hard-on for Debunking the Paranormal
Make no mistake, at the highest level of world government the paranormal isn't just accepted as fact, it is a binding thread and has been for thousands of years. The most powerful secret societies on earth, those which include in their circles kings and queens, generals and industrialists, politicians and lawmakers, doctors and policemen, they all have this secret in common: they believe in the "paranormal" and know how to work with it. They, high-level masons in particular, call it the "forbidden knowledge" or "secret doctrines" and these are arts and wisdom passed down from ancient Egypt and before.
They know a simple law of this universe, and that it is that the paranormal is normal. In the simplest terms, the more esoteric arm of metaphysics is an advanced understanding of the universe as a mathematical construct and a deeper knowledge of the true nature of wave forms-- visible and non-visible light in particular-- and how consciousness creates, receives, and transmits at the quantum level. Isaac Newton was obsessed with light, for example, and his studies of the latter involved Hermetic teachings. According to the ancient teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, which modern physics has borne out thousands of years later:
