Social Darwinism as the main source for the social engineering of modern global culture will be examined and explored. This is an article that was inspired by a recent John le Bon video about the I.Q. Test. This future editorial represents my lengthy thoughts on the subject. This is not meant as any kind of so-called rebuttal, nor as part of any kind of debate. I tend to enjoy the thought provoking work Mr. le Bon does and recommend that work to the readers of this website.
My thoughts do not easily fit into a comment box and I am realizing more and more that I really should simply post my thoughts here where I have the proper medium to do so. I like to go back and correct mistakes and continue to re-edit and work on the article until I think I am satisfied with it. The comment box is no place for that kind of behavior.
What many think of as "science" is actually Scientism and is a tool for reinforcing social order rather than getting to any kind of Natural Truth.
This is not about whether or not I agree with Mr. le Bon's opinions or not. As far as I am concerned this is not some kind of gotcha game or debate. All I am doing is all any of us can; I can state what I think and why in as clear a manner as I can communicate.
Underlying Assumptions Shape Perceptions & Conclusions. Underlying Assumptions Filter Reality.
My opinions simply represent my beliefs based on what I think and my own personal experiences, Your ideas and thoughts are yours to explore and to share if you desire. The next blog posting will simply represent what I think and why and is not meant to be anything other than a statement of what I think or believe and why. It is not meant to one up anyone; it is not meant to score imagined magical points in some kind of ego boosting game I am playing with myself, or anything of the kind. I write these things for myself. I don't mind sharing these ideas with anyone who might be interested. That's all this website is meant to do. It is primarily a mental exercise for me, and if you happen to like what I write about, it might be of interest to you.
Personally I don't think I.Q. Tests are all they are advertised to be. I think these legendary tests only measure one's ability to recognize patterns. While I do think this is an important feature of the human intellect, I do not think the tests themselves are necessarily the best way to measure such things. I do not think human beings can be so easily sorted. I think critics of the I.Q. Test are on firm ground and I think studies based on I.Q. Tests are highly suspect for what I consider to be pretty obvious logically fallacious reasoning. I.Q. Tests are not logically established as representing anything but a partial measure of intellectual capacity. Your results may vary and you might think otherwise. It is not my place to tell you what to think, how to think, where to think, who to think with, why you should think, or anything like that.
I.Q. Tests As The Tools Of The Social "Imagineer"
I happen to think that there is clear evidence of a eugenically biased attitude that places one so-called "race' of humanity above another in some kind of royally inspired pyramid scheme, pecking order. I think I.Q. Tests represent the tools for social engineering. I think I.Q. Tests are the artifacts and social constructs of a Darwinian based social mentality. I think Cosmology has long been used as a tool for imposing a social order and think I.Q Tests, Bell Curves and Scientific Racism are clear examples of the Darwin inspired social order and metaphysics that underpins what passes for modern mainstream reasoning. I think there is something to the idea that the I.Q Test is culturally biased and I do think it is more of a game show like, brain teasing puzzle, than a real tool of science. I also think the more difficult questions might have more than one logical answer. Some of the answers might be more subjective than we might be inclined to think.
I think I.Q. Tests reinforce the inhuman system we all serve, wittingly or not.
All any of us can do is try to exchange ideas and points of view in as civil and as clearly a communicated manner as we humanly can. Being human, we all have our limits, and all are as imperfectly perfect as our shared and very real Creator (whatever that means or not) created and "intended" us to be.
I've been working on this next article for the past two days or so. I want to try to get it into as finished of a condition as I can before posting it. I'd rather try to cover as much of my reasoning as I can, and correct all the inevitable autocorrected and possibly gibberish, typos that I can.
