Why are most students graduating without any clear idea of their role in the scientific or professional community? I’d say at least as far as it takes to demythologize the lame mantra: “there’s no scientific evidence that subluxation exists…” This is a classic Edward L Bernays rote phrase by which the unlettered hope to disguise their laziness, that roughly translates to: “I don’t read.” And because I’ve never found any mainstream science material that proves subluxation is real during the time I wasn’t reading, therefore none must exist. The prevalence of the Lowest Common Denominator Mongrel / facebook/CNN mentality of the omniscient permanent media defective. Don’t let them off — do a De Niro – keep repeating the question till their head explodes.Why are presidents hiring teachers who don’t know any of this, but worse yet, who often then go on the offensive and state categorically that there is no science validating chiropractic? The epistemology of the one-second media blast from Yahoo news or the TV newsreaders, conferring the illusion to all and sundry that they know everything worth knowing without any attempt to learn. When one finally becomes aware of the actual science behind chiropractic, after immersing oneself at least to an introductory level, the true student will then be prepared to be receptive to some basic philosophical ideas which support the science he has just been shown.With this cliche, they then proceed to excuse themselves from any discussion of philosophy and chiropractic. But the deception is, they never talk about chiropractic science either, like they promised. The adverse effect of vertebral subluxations on afferent neurology. Altered afferent input causes incorrect cortical architecture to be reinforced in false patterns via neuroplasticity, resulting then in deficient efferent commands constantly being sent out. Current research by John Minardi and Dan Murphy goes one step further – documenting today’s best science, proving how the adjustment re-organizes the brain to correct hormone output, and also to re-structure pathologic neural pathways of chronic pain, from the mechanoreceptors all the way up to the mesencephalon.
It could be something as simple as a run away script or learning how to better use E-utilities, for more efficient work such that your work does not impact the ability of other researchers to also use our site.
This is the subject of the new Chiropractic Seminar, live and online.
So think of this article the next time someone tries to run the I Just Want the Science game on you. Or at least to agree to disagree, for all you California Tentative Humans.
