The consequences of living in a world built around male data can be deadly

Women are twice more likely to die of heart failure than men because the emergency services only know the male symptoms and send women home. 

Research and pharmaceutical companies prefer men’s body as they are far more straightforward and they do not test medicine on pregnant women at all.

Only women die from womb cancer and medicines are only tested on men.

Women are 47 times more likely to die in a car crash and cars are only tested on the “average male dummy”. Designing cars for men only require less effort than for both sexes as male bones are stronger and less breakable.

Body armours are designed for a male chest and don’t protect women. Their bellies are not protected. Some female police officers have surgery to reduce their breath in order to be safer.

The good news is that the firemen department has finally decided to conceive fire protection clothes for women, who before had to work in suits that were unadapted and too big.

To finish with, we have the data for both sexes but tests are made for men while real-life accidents are for women. The most terrible thing is that nothing is done to prevent this shocking fact.

It is not equal time the creationists want. … Don’t kid yourself. They want all the time there is.

Science is complex and chilling. The mathematical language of science is understood by very few. The vistas it presents are scary—an enormous universe ruled by chance and impersonal rules, empty and uncaring, ungraspable and vertiginous. How comfortable to turn instead to a small world, only a few thousand years old, and under God’s personal; and immediate care; a world in which you are His peculiar concern. 

(…)

Science is dangerous. There is no question but that poison gas, genetic engineering, and nuclear weapons and power stations are terrifying. It may be that civilization is falling apart and the world we know is coming to an end. In that case, why no turn to religion and look forward to the Day of Judgment, … [being] lifted into eternal bliss … [and] watching the scoffers and disbelievers writhe forever in torment. 

(…)

Science is uncertain. Theories are subject to revision; observations are open to a variety of interpretations, and scientists quarrel amongst themselves. This is disillusioning for those untrained in the scientific method, who thus turn to the rigid certainty of the Bible instead. There is something comfortable about a view that allows for no deviation and that spares you the painful necessity of having to think. 

(…)

[Creationists] make it sound as though a ‘theory’ is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night. 

Quotes from Isaac Asimov, The Roving Mind, 1983.


Isaac Asimov is a Russian-American writer and biochemist who was a prolific author and editor of science fiction and non-fiction. These quotes show his book is still relevant in the so-called post-truth era. CERN is under constant attack and attracts rumours as it is also the case for so many scientific institutions. Anybody can contest their authority, just because they say so or misinterpret cherry-picked data. 

Serious scientists are being harassed and threatened, especially when their research collide with financial interests (eg. climate change, genetics, medicines, food). The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who has been instrumental in exposing Volkswagen lies about its diesel engines, is now being progressively dismantled by the Trump administration.

But the many less vocal people can still rely on peer-reviewed serious scientific research. Use your common sense, trust data from bona fide institutions and beware from those who have no doubts.
