Although this blog is set for the WWII and Holocaust narrative, it does tie in with scientific reports produced recently which do not necessarily tie in with that narrative. However it is important to highlight them to illustrate how we trust scientists without questioning them.
Let me say upfront, although people have accused me before for denying climate change, I absolutely do not deny climate change. As a matter of fact I totally believe it is happening, and why should that not be the case because climate change has been around since the dawning of time. We have had several ice ages. In the Jurassic era fossil evidence of ferns and cone-producing plants at the poles suggests that the climate in these regions was much warmer during the Jurassic period than in present day.
The issue I have with some current climate change reports is that this sort of evidence is often omitted , and it is often hard to determine who funds these reports and what agenda is at play.
Recently the EAT Lancet report was published a report on on food, planet, health compiled by more than 30 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy and sustainable diet. The problem I have with this report it was funded by Dr Gunhild Stordalen, a former model and vegetarian who clearly had vested interest in producing a report endorsing her vegetarian lifestyle and company, Additionally it was reported she had flown these 30+ scientists all over the world to compile this reports. Producing a massive carbon foot print in the process. Yet no one questioned the validity of the report, just because it was compiled by scientists.
I sincerely mean this when I say , I am pretty sure all these people did this with the best intentions. But as history teaches us ‘best intentions’ used in a political setting can often become disasters and lead to awful crimes.
Where does this fit in to the WWII and Holocaust narrative, I hear you ask. Below are just some examples of scientists who in their mind were doing things with the best intentions, and they were given cart blanche by a government whose agenda was death and destruction, additionally hardly anyone asked questions because some of these things were done in the name of science.
The picture at the start of the blog is of Kurt H. Debus, seated between John F Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. Kurt Debus was a German V-2 rocket scientist during World War II. He was also a member of the Sturmabteilung (SA) and Himmler’s SS, As a leading scientists of the V2 facilities in Peenemunde he would have been aware of the slave labot required to built the facilities, and more then likely will have actively ordered some of this slave labor himself. Yet after the war he was not convicted but got a great job with NASA.
The picture above is from Dr Asperger and one of his patients.Best known for his early studies on mental disorders, especially in children,and especially children with Autism. He was not a member of the Nazi party. Although he was not a member ,he was a scientist who allied himself so closely with the Nazi ideology that he regularly referred children to the Am Spiegelgrund clinic, which was set up as a collecting point for children who failed to conform to the regime’s criteria of “worthy to live”.Nearly 800 children died at the clinic between 1940 and 1945, many of whom were murdered under the notorious child “euthanasia” scheme. Including Herta Schreiber, who suffered from encephalitis and died of pneumonia three months after her admittance to Spiegelgrund, on Asperger’s orders, a day after her third birthday.She had suffered from encephalitis.Encephalitis is a swelling of the brain and can be caused by infection or an allergic reaction.Assessed in late June 1941, the young girl suffered from ‘severe personality disorder’, ‘idiocy’ and ‘seizures’.
Asperger added that she ‘must be an unbearable burden to her mother’ and then recommended permanent placement at Spiegelgrund.
Herta was admitted to Spiegelgrund on 1 July 1941.
Dr. Hubertus Strughold MD, Ph.D was a German-born physiologist and prominent medical researcher. For his role in pioneering the study of the physical and psychological effects of manned spaceflight he became known as “The Father of Space Medicine” and every year since 1963, the Space Medicine Association has given out the Hubertus Strughold Award to a top scientist or clinician for outstanding work in aviation medicine.
In October 1942, Strughold attended a medical conference in Nuremberg at which SS physician Sigmund Rascher delivered a presentation outlining various medical experiments he had conducted, in conjunction with the Luftwaffe, in which prisoners from the Dachau concentration camp were used as human test subjects.
These experiments included physiological tests during which camp inmates were immersed in freezing water, placed in air pressure chambers and made to endure invasive surgical procedures without anesthetic.
in 2004 following an investigation conducted by the Historical Committee of the German Society of Air and Space Medicine, uncovered evidence of oxygen deprivation experiments carried out by Strughold’s Institute for Aviation Medicine in 1943. According to these findings six epileptic children, between the ages of 11 and 13, were taken from the Nazi’s Brandenburg Euthanasia Centre to Strughold’s Berlin laboratory where they were placed in vacuum chambers to induce epileptic seizures in an effort to simulate the effects of high-altitude sicknesses, such as hypoxia.
These are just a few examples of scientists who were never questioned but caused so much harm, but yet their names are praised on the highest level. To be honest these 3 were not even the worse, far from it, there were many who carried out much more devastating experiments. Not only in Nazi Germany but also in Japan, unit 731 from the Japanese imperial army conducted brutal experiments in the name of science, And some of their ‘research’ is still used today.
I am not saying to turn your back to science, far from it. I want everyone to embrace science. I love science. especially when it comes to medical science and space exploration, But I do want to warn not to trust science blindly. Always question the motives behind the science and who benefits most of it. Otherwise we are doomed to repeat the mistakes from the past.
