Michael J. Knowles: Liberals Can't Articulate Their Arguments, Resort to Screaming
"You But you put it very well which is you don't need to be a rocket scientist to recognize that it's wrong to kill a baby that the constitution does not defend or articulate any right to kill a baby and that it's time to overturn it You don't need to have some advanced degree You don't need to have all of the PhDs and all the various accolades and credentials that the left seems to value so highly and you don't need to use lots of complicated jargon And it's pretty simple We actually can know the difference between good and bad and right and wrong and true and false And I think that the reason that the left tends to get a lot angrier and screeching gal and you remember after Trump won they started screaming no and they all went viral because the value literally screaming at the sky yeah That's right And the reason that they get so angry is because they can't see the reality They can't articulate their position If you understand an issue then you can just state your opinion and you can say Tom lady and you can be forceful but you don't need to scream and yell and pull your hair out But if you know that you're on shaky ground as the pro abortion people are in this case specifically And as the leftists are generally then they have to get emotional and they get frustrated because they can't articulate their views There were two demonstrations outside the Supreme Court today There was a group of pro lifers specifically there was a group of young pro life women and they were singing the national anthem and they were waving American flags and they were praying and they seemed very grounded and reasonable And then there was a group of pro abortion women who were screaming and yelling and literally taking abortion pills You just look at those two groups Dan which one do you think has it more accurately

Trevor Noah: Moderna Chief Not a Source You Should Trust
"Day. Trevor, Noah gets the dummy today. Now I've long said, you take Bill Mars earpiece off. You take Trevor Noah's earpiece off. John Stuart any of them. Gobert, you put them in a room with a smart man or woman who's well read, and you'll let him talk for two hours. There will be nothing left but ribbons of them. There will be cut to pieces. By anyone who knows their way around a set of facts and how to argue. They're not that bad. They're not smart. They're funny, and they have good timing, they're good comics. But Trevor Noah is a moron. Cut number 21. And while most of the world is willing to wait and see, at least one person feels comfortable about making predictions, the Moderna CEO told the Financial Times he expects the existing vaccines to be less effective against the new variant of COVID. I think it's going to be a material drop. This was on vaccine efficacy. I just don't know how much because we still need to wait for the data, but all the scientists I've spoken to are saying this is not going to be good. So on the one hand, almost all the only cron cases have been mild so far. But on the other hand, the guy who stands to gain millions of dollars from new vaccines says we need new vaccines. Huh. If we don't make a new vaccine, this disease could be with us Ferrari. I mean forever. Sorry, I was thinking of something else. Now, look, I'm not saying that the CEO of Moderna is lying. I'm not saying that at all. I'm just saying, I don't think he's the most objective source on this topic, you know? I'll wait to hear what neutral experts say about a new vaccine. People like public health officials or the CEO of Johnson & Johnson. I mean, he's got nothing a game 'cause nobody's gonna buy his vaccines either way, so I trust him. And also, if we do need a new vaccine for this new variant, it's not a big deal. All right, people. I see people online being like, we're going to get a new shot every year. There's no way. Yeah, yeah, you know what? Maybe to not die, you might need to take 15 minutes out of your year.

National Academy of Sciences Always Promote Spending More Government Money for Their Self-Interests
"Scientists are always cautioned not to fall in love with a theory or a method if they do they will lose their objectivity Facts that support their love will be celebrated Facts I cast out on their love will be ignored or forgotten But if you spend years even decades married to a modeling methodology divorce becomes less and less likely And I might add The money is enormous If you push this agenda if you don't you get no funds It dries up The pushback better build back better Bill They don't give money to any scientists or any organization that questions climate change or man-made climate change or that the world is heating and therefore we're all going to hell Not upset The natural Academy of Sciences is a private organization in Washington that touts itself as the science adviser to the government Their advice has some common threads They never criticize the scientific establishment and they always promote spending more money on science Like the teachers unions they pretend to support the common good but actually promote their constituency special interests The academy sponsored a report on the future of climate modeling They apparently saw nothing wrong with staffing the study committee were professional climate modelers That is the people who are doing the modeling The report advocated more money for climate modelers and urged hiring professional public relations people to present their results to the public Their purported climate catastrophe ahead is 100% junk science
Scientists Like Richard Lindzen, Roy Spencer Are Demonized When Challenging Climate Change

How Fauci Politicized America's Scientific Community With Dr. Scott Atlas
"Well, doctor, I completely agree, and we were harsh critics of the lockdown citing your commentary in your writings early and often. However, what confuses so much so many members of our audience and since you were on the front lines, I'd love your take on this. It seems obvious. Then why did we keep on doing it? Why is it that we were ruled by people that were more ideological? I'm being nice, right? I mean, these these decisions have major and serious consequences, and we're completely at odds with the data. You know, strip all the politics aside, just looking at it empirically, you could not justify more lockdowns, more school closures yet, we did. Can you give us any insight into the internal dynamics? Did Fauci and birks have a separate pile of data they weren't telling anyone? Or was it another side of the story where they just didn't care? I love your take on it. Okay, so I'll first state what I believe. And I think, you know, everyone should believe people do want the pandemic to end. I mean, I don't think that I would never ascribe a mode of as evil as that. There was no separate data. In fact, like I tried to say here, these people didn't have what they thought was data was just simple tabulations of cases. And that's not an analysis. That's not critical thinking. I'm talking about the world's literature, the world's data that evolving science, they never brought that forward in my presence at any of the meetings. I never heard them talk about studies. I never saw them critique a study like a critical thinking scientist should. And I never heard anyone refute what I said by quoting studies. Never not once. So that wasn't really the reason. Now, the question why, of course, is very difficult to answer. People at some level are in too deep. These people will never admit they were wrong. That I guarantee,
The Philosophical Fallacy in Bodily Autonomy
"Because if you're only pro choice up until the point when the baby can survive outside the womb, then medical advancements every few decades enable us to make the child viable at earlier and earlier stages. So are you saying that one's in trident intrinsic dignity and natural right to life is dependent on the external advancements of scientists and the ideas that they come up with to make children viable at earlier and earlier stages. That's a very strange political vision of natural rights. But of course, that doesn't make any sense because our babies fully viable. No, if you leave an infant in a crib they die. You know, and what if mom tells the judge in a court of law, Charlie? Well, you know, judge my lesbian dance theory professor at UC Berkeley. She told me I have bodily autonomy. She told me I have bodily autonomy my body, my choice. My breasts are part of my body. So I didn't nurse my infant because I have bodily autonomy. What judge would accept that form of argumentative? Baby yes, the fen for itself. Very few. 6 week old. Once boring is the fend for itself. That's right. Yeah. So obviously the viability one doesn't work. And if you really want to go that route, that you only have rights if you're not dependent on someone or something else. Everyone dependent on insulin heart pacemakers kidney machines life support caretakers would all be non personing and can be killed in people. And you know, it's funny Charlie with the left says that right. Mother earth. Mother, what did they say? We're all dependent on this mother earth goddess without which we can not continue to live. Oh, you mean like the baby can't continue to live apart from their dependency on their mother? So I guess all of us are not persons because we're dependent on the earth ridiculous. So viability doesn't work. Well, they're not developed enough so they don't have desires. Then this is a more fine tuning philosophical argument with Charlie. But you don't have to find will then you're not exactly or that you don't have a claim to act unless you have a desire for X and can understand that you've been denied X and so unless you're aware of your right to something and can articulate it or have a desire for it. I guess you don't meet that list. This is enlightenment thinking gone wrong. Oh, totally. Yeah, this goes right back to the enlightenment period. Yeah. And right back to misses Machiavelli, the beginnings of what became post modernism relatives. It all started with Machiavelli. That's exactly
UK plans new measures to combat omicron coronavirus variant

"scientist" Discussed on Goodbye to Alcohol
"I expect is scientists zoll teen mom. Won't he's going to talk to us about the cdt test. When i was drinking the wine every i was vaguely where i was harming myself but because i never saw any proof of that i just have. Don't doing it now if my daughter had done a cdt tests on me and show me the results in black and white. I think that would have shocked me into making a change so this episode is all about explaining water. Cdt test is and how he can get one. I started our conversation by asking. You shown to tell me. But about himself and how he discovered the cdt test. Indeed well hello everybody at all your your listeners. Well i'm saw. I've been living in the uk for the boss forty three years now. It is based in london. And originally i was born in <hes>. On the island of mauritius which is not too far from south africa answer. I'm matt familiar with a tropical southern hemisphere more so and in fact overrule was assessing this today at thirty two years diagnostic laboratory experience as both a clinical scientist and abide medical scientists. The latter requires more if you like getting once hints deji on the bench and doing the. We're kind of jokes. So i do enjoy that fall. Mole two thousand and eight. Somebody said to me to the test at school cdt. And i had no idea what city was what did did stateful at to me. It's something new that's coming out and we're commercialising it. It's to people who are at risk of chronic alcohol consumption and yet curiously. Why not and what. I was working there would be. People would come into the emergency department at night in the hospital and would have taken but nobody they would be smelling about. Also you could literally spend the or and you would think they'd be venturing or whatever so automatically. The doctors would have to ask for a request for a alcohol to be done. And this is a single time. Point measurement us through <unk>. Might be and i saw. I render buys those samples. So i had no idea who they were and read these same samples anonymously on that cd on the liza and to my surprise i found out those who were testing negative for having consume alcohol when they were being admitted had this elevated cdt. And i couldn't understand why. And most of those who were drinking. And in fact where i imagine bhai now would be closed as chronic drinkers had both elevated auto an elevated cdt. So it became very mantra curiosity and between two thousand eight twenty ten. I did a lot of <hes>. Of the swear in that manner. They went many samples private referral laboratories full on behalf of airline. Where taking it interest into this mollica. Because we're just the basic tests at started getting work from these companies. Also and i was invited to present some of my work in the netherlands in amsterdam in twenty twelve december so that was just after the olympics and unbeknownst to me there were representatives of the international federation of clinical chemistry present and this is known as the ifc see. This is the body that if you like it. It's full of international orla clinicians scientists and so on that all the blood test we have done in a laboratory. They approve that so that any tests that you have done that they approved so these people were there as representatives. Ocd the ifc members suggested that i joined the group which at the time they were trying to if you like rationalized how cdt was being done and make it a more recognized test. It was like sort of research. Talk to the time. So i did <hes>. Issue like express my interest and by twenty fifteen. I ended up becoming a member of this working group and nothing lead. Did i just become a member. But in twenty eight thousand nine. They found myself being the chair of the ifc cdt working group which is an enormous platform personally for me and since then the icco's taken on bullet that a <unk>. Full front to promote the test.

"scientist" Discussed on 106.1 FM WTKK
"People are choosing not to wear masks when you know it's safe for all of the scientists have said that in favor you do not have a right to endanger the lives of other people that's one thing you don't have a right to do but for whatever reason people of are making that decision and its recent to win all this first started up most people are wearing masks when they went on public most people were wearing masks and doing the right thing and a couple weeks ago when we really started to slowly open things up that is when people decided that for themselves not based on any science has a scientist statement or anything like that they decided apparently for themselves that the virus was cured even though it's not and they weren't gonna we're amassing more that make any sense to me because you're not protecting yourself it's not a decision you're making to protect yourself it's a decision you're making to endanger the lives of somebody else and that doesn't make any sense to me so I don't know if you are wearing a mask and if not why eight hundred eight one eight nine nine nine that's eight hundred eight one eight nine nine nine okay Chad who's in aspen Hey Chad garnishment show with Casey how you doing Hey David I'm doing well thanks for taking my call thanks for calling yes so I guess I just the what I was telling the screeners at the tenth win in America we become our brother's keeper and that it's you know it's Michael your help is my responsibility so I don't I don't really buy the premise that is endangering other people's lives if they're taking the risks because you wouldn't have your by the premise or not it is that's that's what wearing the mask you can you can choose not to believe it I can't make you believe something but it is you are endangering other people you don't wear a mask that's you're not because you're not protecting yourself by wearing a mask you're protecting somebody else if you pop potentially have the virus so whether you choose to believe it or not it is right of course the mask is not gonna spray any virus cold flu deaths this buyers or anything everybody wore masks we would also not have the flu that well known but again that even that's not entirely true so I'm trying to figure out where you're getting your information common sense well I don't find it what what what medical schools you common sense go to okay what medical school to the Surgeon General go through anything that don't do anything what medical well he went to one common sense then got into medical school either mass don't eat that masks don't matter to stop buying masks no he didn't say he said that mass will not protect you from the virus what they will do is they will limit the possibility that you could infect someone else right and I'm I'm not disputing okay that sounds like a man so you're talking about common sense first say that to say that what you're saying is a lack of common sense the what are the the premise I'm talking about I'm not saying that it they said it was common sense and what I what I'm telling you is that it's not common sense you're wrong and Adams went to the air Indiana martyrs apartment in medicine so so as opposed to Mr common sense who didn't go to medical school the Surgeon General actually went to an accredited medical school and said the opposite of what you're saying now so why I said I don't have a different time I don't know how many different times I can say it to you before you believe it but I'll say it again the masks and we've heard this time and time again we've heard the since the very beginning when people started wearing masks they will not protect you from getting it but they could potentially protect someone else from getting it from you and that's what this is about that's what I said the whole time so you can selectively believe what you want to selectively believe Chad but it doesn't change reality right I'm not I'm selectively believing that America was founded on I'm not responsible for other people felt that if they are scared to go out they shouldn't they should wear hazmat suits and not expect others to protect their health that's right on the right side of the road though what's that do you drive on the right side of the road I do and I don't drive drunk either and white why do you drive on the right side of the road because that's the law and he is the government told you to okay in your seat belt no we do you do what you want when you're driving on the right side of the road like the government tells you to and you reach a red light do you stop I do but it's okay even though even though it's not your responsibility to keep the other people say for driving that's weird why do you do that because I don't possibly because we don't want to kill other people and now I I I don't know no okay I wouldn't do that what do you do on a daily basis that endangers the lives of other people randomly fire a gun into the sky do you you know what why not it's not your responsibility for what happens on those boards fall don't fire guns guy went yeah I mean you know things like that if we're taking it we're all doing read it we all are suing real you're picking what list you want to listen to us and you're gonna do it you either have respect for a billion dollars that's what it comes down to you drive on the right side of the road that's because the government tell you to drive on the right side of the road you can drive on the left side of the road it's not your responsibility what happened those people are driving into you they

you since when do you have that responsibility that button it keeps traffic moving its orderly if there's a better light you can just drive right on through you know what how many times you set there at a traffic light has been nobody on the other side you can see you've seen the old videos of people there were no travel quite asking how many how many times have you been sitting at a red light and there's been nobody coming the other direction do you just go sometimes do you think break the law you make that decision to endanger other people do yeah no because it's pretty you don't okay well I'm I'm confused so you're picking and choosing which rules you want to obey and not obey you're picking and choosing who what people you want to endanger and what people you don't want to endanger yeah I mean if you if it's a small if if the society what I didn't realize that there were one I didn't realize that they depend on the size of the pool every Thursday if there aren't that many people driving on the left side of the road you can just drive over there and and it's their responsibility to get out of the way yeah I mean you keep coming back to that but that's not the same thing you know you've got places to be your American Chad you've got places to be I'll let you go check thanks for calling the snitch I appreciate it you know I'm in again it's an extreme example all right whatever he's wrapping themselves in the right I'm trying to figure out where the right to endanger other people come from let's go to Brian in port Charlotte Hey Brian you're on the **** show with Casey how you doing Hey I'm doing pretty good what's your take on this phone we have a mask for the same reason you said so here's the thing since January first of this year since we covered started what portion of three hundred thousand downstairs worldwide from coated in a worldwide over ninety thousand in this country at the same amount of time we got twenty two million abortions and not one right all right all right thanks for calling this niche so I appreciate it not gonna talk about abortion and that's not an argument anybody's going to win and it's a waste of breath let's go to Jim in Florida Hey Jim you're on structure within easy item thank you how are you Hey look I I I'd like to just let you know that I I don't wear a mask and a warning message the beginning of this and so it is like I started wearing a mask and then decide if you want to wear a mask I don't know she send it we shouldn't wear masks I am a YouTube video of him saying that exact same thing in March or when there is a shortage of masks that's when he said that if you read early on when there is a shortage of masks and they were trying to get them to health care workers and people were being told not to go out that's when he said well they they they told us they didn't work well they didn't and they don't you work so right yeah yeah not gonna talk over here we're gonna have a conversation or you're gonna go bye bye okay okay you're gonna come over me but I know I'm not going to talk over you but I'm trying to have a conversation that you don't want to hear about she said that early on you do have a video because he did say that he said that early on because they were trying to get the face mask to the front line workers in the health care workers who needed them all right an early on they they did say the mass start ineffective when it comes to keeping you from getting the virus I've not said differently the masks help they are not foolproof but they help when it comes to making sure that you don't in fact somebody else because if you're exhaling or coughing or sneezing or something like that it limits the particles that leave your mouth that's all I'm saying and that's just reality backs so what you're saying is that if you have the symptoms you can spread the disease yeah you can spread the jam we're not doing this man we're going to talk or you're not going to stay your go in if you make some you can let me answer it what I'm saying is that you can spread the disease if you have the symptoms you can spread the disease if you are a symptomatic that's why it's just better to wear a mask and I don't see why people don't that make any sense to me I only ask you this how big a particle can I can a neckerchief over your mouth filter out good size if you do it right there made properly and I said well it's not been a said in it and I said it's not full proof but it.

So the problems that we're facing in the world to they're not going to be solved at the same level of thinking that got us into these problems right and and frankly right now. We are in a situation where we need new kinds of thinking new kinds of creativity new ways of approaching our work. Our lives on the other side of this pandemic were going to have to think differently. In order to rebuild our businesses our economies and in general our lives. I think things are going to look a lot different. Which means we're going to have to think with new strategies. Today's guest is going to help us do that. His name is ozone verol and he's the author of a new book. It's called a think like a rocket scientist. I had such a great time with this conversation. It was remarkably fascinating. He's going to help us. Think in new and more strategic ways about our life and our work is GONNA help us get to another level in our thinking by giving us some strategies to help us think like a rocket scientist. So we're going to dive into that conversation with those on just a few minutes very very excited to share this with you before. We do a couple of things if you like this show. If you like these podcast episodes you can get a deeper dive by subscribing to our weekly email. Newsletter goes out once a week and it has you know a couple of deeper principles and things that I took from the conversation with our guests or maybe sometimes when I do a solo show it has a transcript of the show right there for you so that you yourself can read it can apply it in.

"Lonely and as as a scientist is he must have been feeling I was just I was just allies for few minutes there not sure what to say and not sure what to do we struggled for months if not years to make sense of that moment when it happened it was only with time that I came to realize that Roger should been struggling with the well the sadness that was far deeper than many of us probably imagined so we felt a lot of guilt wondering giving Mrs sign should we have been more supportive of him I I think back on those days as a child when I would walk around the construction site at home and have those conversations with him and I now realize that haps those conversations and that more than I had thought I feel grateful that I had the opportunity to have those exchanges with him because those are the few moments were assigned joy on his face and heard in his voice as he talked about what he loved which is architecture and construction I want to talk for a moment about the general connection between social isolation and loneliness and the phenomenon of suicide the numbers are really staggering the Vic forty five thousand people commit suicide in the United States every year worldwide it's about eight hundred thousand people it's really astonishing that we don't pay more attention to the problem not just in the United States but around the world well it is an suicide sadly although it's been improving in some countries around the world has been worsening and others including the United States and I think part there's so many reasons why I think we don't talk about a deal with suicide as profound an issue as it is I think it makes people uncomfortable number one and I think it also makes people feel helpless the roots of deep depression and suicide are complicated and it's not always easy to understand where they come from there are also lots of mixed feelings that people have about suicide with their with rooted in religious believe foreign cultural norms but the bottom line is when it comes to suicide when it comes to depression the one of the greatest resources we have one of the most powerful sources of healing that we have in our back pocket our relationships with others those relationships may not always feel available in the moment so we want them but it stands out to me despite being a doctor who is prescribing a number of medications over the years that one of them was powerful medicines we have his love and the vehicle through which that love is delivered our relationships and at a time when we are struggling with such high levels of suicide at a time we seen such high levels of depression anxiety particularly among young people I think it's more important than ever that we rethink and harness the power of relationships and recognize that they are not just nice to haves but they are necessary to have an essential part of the foundation that makes us healthy well and strong I'm wondering how is a doctor and his former Surgeon General you see these issues playing out in the context of the corona virus pandemic we're all being told to practice social distancing we're meeting few friends we hunker down with family or many of us hunker down by ourselves can you see this pandemic increasing social isolation worldwide I think there's a real possibility that the physical distance thing we're being asked to observe to tamp down this wave of cove in nineteen infection could very well contribute to more loneliness I think you could contribute to a social recession if you will mark by deepening levels of loneliness is we stay apart for longer and longer periods of time but I don't think it has to be that way in fact I think this is potentially an opportunity for us to re think and re center our lives around relationships to recognize once again and perhaps even more deeply appreciate the role and power that relationships have in our lives not just to our spouses and our family members and close friends but also the relationships we share with colleagues at work with classmates at school and even with strangers in our community and I'm struck that it in a moment like this when we're all being asked to separate them when I go for a walk around the circle in which I live and if I see somebody walking the opposite direction the way furiously and smile as if either just so hungry for human contact and you know what I wave back just as enthusiastically because I too am hungry for human contact I feel like we need appreciation for the strangers in my life for the faces that I don't recognize but for the relationships that I now see are actually quite valuable so I think that if we approach this moment with intentionality if we approach this time as it is with the mindset that we are going to double down and focus on both the quality of our time with other people as well as the quantity of time that we dedicate to the people we love and I think that we may be able to come out of this much stronger in terms of our human connections with each other than when we began we may be able to use code in.

"Scientist was going over that scientists papers at cal Berkeley and came across a application for a scholarship at the Miller institute at UC Berkeley from nineteen fifty nine in this application from nineteen fifty nine V. V. S. scientists who wasn't famous yet in nineteen fifty nine revealed the titles of two apparently classified papers from nineteen fifty eight and he was involved in the first paper was titled quote possible contribution of lunar nuclear weapons detonations to the solution of some problems in planetary astronomy another one from nineteen fifty nine was entitled radiological contamination of the moon by nuclear weapons detonations close quote this seemingly benign leak revealed a here to four and this is by the way for failed to mention other researcher was doing this research in the mid nineties up until the mid nineties this is not known this apparent slip by this future famous scientist revealed a here too for unknown project the for your searches were made and out what was revealed was in nineteen fifty eight in the wake of the embarrassment of Sputnik for for if you were not alive and I wasn't alive but I I I can read the national shockwave of the Russians putting a artificial satellite in earth orbit the Sputnik satellite which basically was a metal sphere that transmitted a beep that's what it was but in nineteen fifty seven the fact that they did that was shocking to the United States of America to the rank and file American out with the victory of World War two fresh in mind in America being the most prosperous society and country the world's ever seen technologically far ahead of anyone else to be lapped tend to have a football spiked on us like that was shocking it was a national shock it it provided impetus however for huge increases in funding to for for science education in high schools for for technological institutes in in universities around the of the country in many many ways though Sputnik was a shock it resulted in laying the groundwork for technological excellence for generations to become add to come one of the things that the president the United States ask the different services and NASA as we know NASA now didn't exist I quite yet it was still the national advisory committee on on aeronautics Nacka NASA the quickly became NASA as it was obvious that space is going to be a major push for the late fifties sixties seventies the president asked all of the different arms of the Pentagon as well as NASA can we do something quickly to show that we're not bad technologically that far behind the Soviets and that if it was a stunt that we want to do we could have done that too so the airforce came up we have a a project with the idea our project a one one niner alpha one one niner new to the moon let's put a nuclear weapon on a missile and detonated on the moon so that everybody on earth can see L. it'll do two things it'll show technological prowess and secondly it'll serve as a warning to the Soviets that this is something we can do and they cannot the idea was not laughter shouted down in fact NASA put people on it NASA and the airforce therefore special weapons center began working on the project one of the things that they were told immediately was well H. bonds not gonna work this is too heavy but what we possibly could do is to put a a lighter a bomb a conventional a bomb on one of our existing missiles and and we can hit what's called the the the terminator which is the the line between the light side the dark side of the moon and the stated purpose of the new king of the moon I was gonna be to create a dust cloud that can be observed that was back lit from the sun so we we get to see through the cloud of from earth and all the science will be done just an amazing minus sign to be done a from a one point seven kiloton relatively small nuclear weapon hitting exactly where we say it will not in a crater on the surface of the moon will show the Soviets will show the rest of the world that we're doing real science for not doing stunts science shooting a tennis ball around the earth and the project was advance other so this is going to be a new smaller than the little boy that was dropped on Hiroshima nineteen forty five and dozens of scientists worked on it many many scientists from from Berkeley and other leading nuclear institutes studied it because they had already asked asked the question what should we do this they said yeah we shut the project in January nineteen fifty nine was canceled out of fear of a negative public reaction and the risk to the population should anything go wrong there was at the end of the day they said you know what this might appear like the announcement of a war to the Soviets so we canceled the project in January of nineteen fifty nine we found out after the cold Cold War that the Russians had a very similar project called the E. project via the scientist behind these papers the scientists who was being research

"The social or sciences scientist social psychology and anthropology what has a man calling gone to develop themselves for the rigors of exploration in space it's my contention that space faring us society had to come to that dilemma do we bring our social order into space do we contaminate other societies other planets with our the failures such as greed and power and all the wonderful things that we find that's rampant on the planet how do we say gawd and keep science you are and about the active until there is nothing you are in the world knowing the great one of my mind one of the noblest aspects of the human race is that we recognize we are in perfect but we strive for perfection that doesn't mean we can achieve it what we strive for it so we have to recognize that imperfection exist says use will happen I talk a lot about you know capitalism and freedom well capitalism and freedom of it involves risk and it's sad yeah companies are not going to succeed some of the sale but the competition and the ability to use your brains free **** to come up with your own ideas generate six much greater success and in the end result everyone benefits like the old saying a rising tide lifts all boats and too many ways the human race has been over the last two millennium in.

"Chinese scientist who claims to have created the world's first gene edited babies has been sentenced to three years in prison that is according to an announcement today from China's official news agency Xinhua NPR health correspondent rob Stein joins us now with more Hey rob Hey there can you just remind is who is this signed his and what exactly did he claim he did yeah his name is who's young qua he's thirty five any was based at the Southern University of science and technology in Shenzhen China you might remember he shocked the world about a year ago when he announced he had created twin girls from embryos whose DNA he had edited in lab yeah using the powerful gene editing technical crisper he said he did it to try to protect them from getting infected with the aids virus but his claim sparked outrage around the world for a couple reasons the first one was no one knows if this sort of thing would be safe for any kids produce this way and also raises big concerns about opening the door for so called designer babies right okay so what exactly happened today what did the Chinese government to write to as you mention Chinese news agency announced that her and two of his colleagues had been put on trial and had pleaded guilty to a variety of things including conspiring to forge ethical review documents to deceive authorities about their what they called the illegal medical practices it also said they had rationally done what they did for personal profit and hello who's also known as J. K. he was sentenced to three years in prison and fined the equivalent of about four hundred thirty thousand dollars and two of his colleagues who work with them also receive lesser sentences and smaller fines in the announcement also revealed for the first time that a third baby who is sorry to see it created this way had already been born to another woman I mean I remember when her announced what he did there were a lot of people in the scientific community who were outraged and a lot of people want to see him face consequences but was prison what they had in mind yes so you know I've been in touch with a number of scientists and bioethicists today in several different countries they're all pretty much saying the same thing that they hoped this would act as a powerful deterrent to anyone else trying this sort of thing again and one to a bioethicist who's advising the World Health Organization about how to regulate this technology says the sentence does seem pretty much in line with what would happen in other countries if others aren't really the same sort of thing yeah and I also heard from a a bioethicist from Stanford who'd gotten to know JK pretty well and even warned against doing what he did and he said he felt sorry for him in his family you know JK he's married his two young children but he to hope the case would be kind of a wake up call about the potential dangers of the latest genetic technologies so is anything being done in the larger scientific community to try to prevent this kind of thing from happening again yeah so this case it prompted a huge a really intense debate that still under way in the scientific community around the world in one big issue is that a number of scientists either strongly suspected what who was doing a actually knew what he was doing and they didn't sound any alarms about it one researcher at Rice University is still under investigation for possibly actually being actively involved in this project and then at the same time they're commissions have been formed to different commissions were trying to come with better ways to police this technology and actually come up with ways to scientists could ethically use these powerful new gene editing techniques because there is widespread agreement that gene editing it could provide important new ways to treat many diseases and it's already showing promise for that in some scientists think it may even someday be ethical to try to create genetically modified babies to prevent terrible genetic diseases but others they argue that's on the third and we just open up a Pandora's box of we should never go there but this debate is far from over in fact there's a scientist in Russia who says he wants to create.

"So so this is a program that places PHD scientists who are either early career mid-career late career doesn't matter in the government for a year to two years to see how they can use their expertise within the within a government setting. I'm trying to find where their expertise fits into policymaker. Gang and also figure out you know, how this big bureaucratic unwieldy seemingly a thing like government actually works. And so I wanted to to get a feel for how I could use my experiences in grad school, my commitment to wanting to democratize access to the products of research. So make sure that they're communicated to the public, and they're also communicated to researchers. So that we're really making sure that science has a place within the public discourse. So what do you see as the danger of science not being part of the public discussion? I see a lot of decisions that are being made based on emotions and emotions alone, which I am a very emotional person. And I find that for me to take a step back to identify in my emotions as fear or or. Or excitement or what have you take a step back and think well, why what does the evidence say, and what are the consequences if I don't act in in accordance with the ovens because there are some times when I take strange vitamins because I see them advertised advertise, they'll make my hair shinier, and I want that. And I look at the evidence, and it doesn't really back it up, but there's also no health risks. So I think well, why not just doing your own experiment. Yeah. Just doing my own experiment. And if it makes me feel better than that's fine. But then of course, there are other cases like climate change, which it's here it's happening and we've caused it. And if we don't act now than we are really risking the health and livelihood of our planet of our fellow people by by neglecting the evidence. So I think that's really the risk of of not of not communicating about where science falls in public discourse. Because. Sometimes it's benign to ignore the evidence and other times, it's completely catastrophic. I wanna pivot to inequity in and bias. I mean, many people think, hey, the science is the science there can't be inequities or by sees can you give some examples to our listeners. So they know what we're talking about. Yeah. So I think it is really a common refrain is that scientists are purely objective, which ignores the fact that scientists are people, and we can be trained to recognize our bias in the ways that they're creeping up into our research, but often that's not really something. That's very much explored in scientific training is identifying the biases that come up as a product of of how we're raised. How we're socialized how we interact with one another. And so I think that the way that this really crops up in the case of women minorities. Disabled people. People LGBTQ people is that people people's assumptions of, you know, I'll take me as an example. I'm a woman in case, you can't tell by my voice. And I've had people tell me that some of my bold ideas are over ambitious, whereas if that idea came out of the mouth of a male colleague of mine that would be seen as visionary or bold yet innovative, cutting edge and the way that that creeps up when I'm writing a scientific paper or applying for grant money is that they'll look at that over ambitiousness and say that it's unrealistic and not worth funding. And so that starts to hurt the careers of women starts to hurt the careers of people who don't conform to the stereotypes that we've been socialized to accept as as what a scientist looks like which is typically white SIS gendered, male and. So unless we're having these kinds of conversations about the ways that bias affect who gets to do science than we're really not going to be able to course. Correct. Despite how however many, you know, fun diversity initiatives we throw out there. Despite however, many kind of kinds of like by moments that we try to have unless we're really interrogating the bias that we hold even I as a woman hold certain biases that are implicit against women. Just because of how I've been socialized within this greater societal context. And I think that also if we're keeping certain people away from the bench, if we're keeping certain people out of these conversations, not giving them a seat at the table. Then we're really especially when you start.
