Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

Global Conflict Discussion (Part 3): Scientific Process

The scientific process includes peer-review as a corrective measure. Peer review means that people of similar background (i.e., peers) examine each other's work (i.e., scientific processes) for errors and discoveries; then if possible, they repeat the work to verify the results. If the repeated work has repeated similar results, then the work is said to have passed peer-review. However, if the repeated work has vastly different results (or unobtainable results), then the work is said to have failed peer-review. Below are the steps involved in the Scientific Process, these steps are cyclic in that scientists repeat and refine based on prior results.

Scientific Method
1.) Observe / Question
2.) Research / Interview
3.) Hypothesize / Refine Question
4.) Test / Experiment
5.) Analyze / Conclude
6.) Communicate (w/methods stated) / Present
7.) Peer Review / Duplicate

Historically speaking, governments, businesses, religions, and insanely egotistical wealthy individuals have been known to interfere in the peer-review process. Reasons differ, but it all amounts to squashing knowledge while encouraging ignorance in the name of profit-seeking. Scientists work from the shared knowledge accumulated by human beings who experimented within the fluctuating world of their own conflicted centuries. In other words, scientists only work with knowledge that has been officially released (or leaked) for peer-review. At the same time, the masses (the people) only work with the knowledge that has been peer-reviewed and accepted (or, leaked and denied) because that is all that is released by the scientific community and approved by education boards. Is this type of shit-rolls-downhill knowledge filtering what they mean by "trickle-down"?

Then, I think about today's scientists. And, today's amatuers. I think of the collabrative nature of the internet. I think of the open source and maker movements as proof that ingenuity and innovation come from attempting to answer tough questions. The scientific process and peer-review on the global scale afford the opportunity for improvement. Therein lies the risk, any opportunity for improvement must also be an opportunity for destruction. Perhaps, information trickle is important for minimizing the risk of destruction. For instance, instructions for DIY nukes need NOT be readily downloadable.

(*Please Note: We the People of the United States of America are citizens of a Constitutional Republic, a.k.a. The Republic. We are not a direct democracy like some believe. By the Constitution, we are a Representative Democracy. We elect representation to defend the Constitution and the People. We placed our faith with government in the people, not in monarchs, not in career politicians, but in the People.

You want changes? Then, it is time for you to take an active interest in the good of the Republic. Do not leave governance to career politicians. Run for office. Vote for third, fourth, and fifth parties.)

This November vote them all out!
Clean Out Congress or Bust!
