    The Vaccines: Awesome Ingenuity or a Huge Mistake?

    Are these vaccines a huge mistake?
    by Chris Martenson

    Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche has two things; a very long career in industry vaccine development and a theory that these vaccines — as configured and rolled-out — represent a gigantic mistake. One that will cause immense harm in the future. Is he right? Is he wrong? We don’t know, but his ideas deserve to be heartily debated and discussed, not censored and shut down.

    Why? Because the science isn’t settled and we deserve to know.

    Bad Faith Fauci, Part 1

    Attacks on Fauci are attacks on science?

    Fauci has destroyed faith in science.  The FDA and NIH have diminished people’s faith in medicines and treatments, respectively.  This is a terrible direction in which to head — once a society loses its ability to trust its main institutions and authorities, bad things follow.

    Fauci Places Politics Over Science (and your health)

    Yes, I'm disappointed

    The main health authority in the US is placing politics over science.  We’re running out of reasonable excuses for why this might be.  But the science is clear, or at least not nearly as settled as Fauci claims.

    Michael Shermer: The Importance Of Skepticism

    Without it, we're slaves to our beliefs
    by Adam Taggart

    As humans, the way we process and react to information is influenced by both the biology of our brains as well as our social and cultural norms. We've talked many times here at PeakProsperity.com about the influence — conscious and subconsious — that our beliefs exert on our actions. Our past podcasts on behavioral economics have delved into this in detail.

    But just because we believe something, that doesn't make it true. Which is why the scientific process is so important: when followed without bias, it enables us to understand reality as it truly is. And such accurate understanding of the facts allows us to make more useful decisions.

    In this week's podcast, Chris speaks with Michael Shermer, monthly columnist for Scientific American and founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, about the importance of cultivating a questioning mindset.

    In this week's podcast, Chris sits down with Mark Cochrane to discuss global climate change.

    Mark is a professor and senior research scientist at the Geospatial Science Center of Excellence (the GSCE) at South Dakota State University. He is also the creator of Peak Prosperity's excellent forum thread on climate change.

    In this interview, Chris and Mark explore the science behind the study of climate change, what it tells us, and what steps individuals concerned about the trend can take.
