Actually it’s probably less than 10% but we’ll never know exactly.
The problem with most science is that it is based on these ideas that we consider false:
- that one can only be sure of facts that are measurable
- that one can measure everything with existing equipment
- that one can only be sure of facts that are repeatable
- that ultimate truth exists
- that material and spirit are two different things
- that one gets objective, genuine results from industry sponsored research
- that something is impossible if it doesn’t fit in known theories
- that one can fool nature without understanding holistic laws
- that making disappear symptoms is curing desease
- that the doctor knows best and the patient be patient, shut their mouth and just obey
- that food should be different from medication
- that using chemicals that are isolated from their natural context will not destroy the body and health
I’ll never forget the argument of a philosopher, called Etienne Vermeersch, in a discussion about metaphysics on a national TV channel. He stated:
It cannot be true because it is impossible.
That is how a lot of scientists think. Isn’t this arrogant? It is costing a lot of lives, because therefore many good therapies are banned from hospitals and insurance, while they have proved to work.
