What is science? What "they" wish to tell us. What "they" wish to tell us is what "they" wish us to believe. If a lie is told as fact it is still a lie no matter how many ways it is told. If a truth is omitted from the past, subsequent "truths" dependent on that past truth become lies.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." — Joseph Goebbels
Do you believe in global warming?
A newly-uncovered and monumental calculating error in official US government climate data shows beyond doubt that climate scientists unjustifiably added on a whopping one degree of phantom warming to the official "raw" temperature record. Skeptics believe the discovery may trigger the biggest of all “climate con” scandals in Congress and sound the death knell on American climate policy. (read full story here)
Why would the government lie about "global warming"? Well, first off, the U.S. is broke and selling "carbon credits" was a way to get cash. Who got in on the ground floor? Mr. Inconvient Truth himself, former vice president Al Gore, when he started Generation Investment Management (GIM) a now defunct carbon credit exchange, optimistic that a Democrat-controlled Congress would pass cap-and-trade legislation Gore lobbied for.

Have we wised up to the truth of the lie?
What about science setting its present foundation on a lie? What is the lie? An omitted past. Omission requires fiction to fill the gap. Every thing built upon that fiction is built on a lie. Why would "they" lie?
Well, first lets present some "forgotten" facts (ie: the truth):
According to Seneca the Great Bear had been the polar constellation. After a cosmic upheaval shifted the sky, a star of the Little Bear became the polar star.
Hindu astronomical tablets composed by the Brahmans in the first half of the first millennium before the present era show a uniform deviation from the expected position of the stars at the time the observations were made (the precession of the equinoxes being taken into consideration) In view of the geometrical methods employed by Hindu astronomy and its detailed method of calculation, a mistake in observation equal to even a fraction of a degree would be difficult to account for.
In Jaiminiya-Upanisad-Brahmana it is written that the center of the sky, or the point around which the firmament revolves, is in the Great Bear. This is the same statement we found in Thyestes of Seneca.
In Egypt, too, “the Great Bear played the part of the Pole Star.” “The Great Bear never set.” If the earth moved all the time as it moves now, four thousand years ago the star nearest the North Pole must have been a-Draconis. The change was sudden; the Great Bear “came bowing down.” In the Hindu sources it is said that the earth receded from its wonted place by 100 yojanas, a yojana being five to nine miles. Thus the displacement was estimated at from 500 to 900 miles.
The day on which the shortest shadow is cast at noon is the day of the summer solstice; the longest shadow at noon is cast on the day of the winter solstice. This method of determining the seasons by measuring the length of the shadows was applied in ancient China, as well as in other countries.
We possess the Chinese records of the longest and shortest shadows at noontime. These records are attributed to —1100. "But the shortest and the longest shadows recorded do not really represent the true lengths at present." The old Chinese charts record the longest day with a duration which "does not represent the various geographical latitudes of their observatories," and therefore the figures are supposed to have been those of Babylonia, borrowed by ancient Chinese, a rather unusual conjecture.
The length of the longest day in a year depends on the latitude, or the distance from the pole, and is different at different places. Gnomons or sundials can be built with great precision. The Babylonian astronomical tablets of the eighth century provide exact data, according to which the longest day at Babylon was equal to 14 hours 24 minutes, whereas the modern determination is 14 hours 10 minutes and 54 seconds.
"The difference between the two figures is too great to be attributable to refraction, which makes the sun still visible over the horizon after it has set. Thus, the greater length of the day corresponds to latitude 34° 57', and points to a place 2/2° further to the north; we stand therefore before a strange riddle [vor einem merkwiirdigen Ratsel]. One tries to decide: either the tablets of System II do not originate from Babylon [though referring to Babylon], or this city actually was situated far [farther] to the north, about 35° away from the equator." Since the computations of the astronomical tablets did refer to Babylon, there is a possible solution that Babylon was situated at a latitude of 35° from the equator, much farther to the north than the ruins of this city.
Claudius Ptolemy, who, in his Almagest, made computation for contemporaneous and ancient Babylon, arrived at two different estimates of the longest day at that city, and consequently of the latitude at which it was located, one of his estimates being practically of the present-day value, the other coinciding with the figure of the ancient Babylonian tables, 14 hours 24 minutes. The Arabian medieval scholar Arzachel computed from ancient codices that in more ancient times Babylon was situated at a latitude of 35° 0' from the equator, while in later times it was situated more to the south. Johannes Kepler drew attention to this calculation of Arzachel and to the fact that between ancient and modern Babylon there was a difference in latitude. Thus Ptolemy, and likewise Arzachel, computed that in historical times Babylon was situated at latitude 35°. Modern scholars arrived at identical results on the basis of ancient Babylonian computations. "This much, therefore, is certain: our tables [System II, and I also], and the astronomers mentioned as well, point to a place about 35° north latitude. Is it possible that they were mistaken by 2° to 2M°? This is scarcely believable."
As there was but one Babylon, its location, at some historical time, at 35° north latitude signifies that at the longitude of Babylon the earth since then has turned toward the south, and the direction of the polar axis, or its geographical location, or both, have undergone displacement. Some of the classic authors knew that the earth had changed its position and had turned toward the south; not all of them, however, were aware of the real cause of this perturbation. Diogenes Laertius repeated the teaching of Leucippus: "The earth was bent or inclined towards the south because the northern regions grew rigid and inflexible by the snowy and cold weather which ensued thereon." The same idea is found in Plutarch, who quoted the teaching of Democritus: "The northern regions were ill temperate, but the southern were well; whereby the latter becoming fruitful, waxed greater, and, by an overweight, preponderated and inclined the whole that way." Empedocles, quoted by Plutarch, taught that the north was bent from its former position, whereupon the northern regions were elevated and the southern depressed. Anaxagoras taught that the pole received a turn and that the world became inclined toward the south
I did not find those facts myself I'm merely presenting them. Those are some of the "forgotten" facts (the truth). What has been built on the fiction that took the truth's place? The Accrection Theory of the solar systems development in place of Chaos Theory. The Big Bang Theory took the place of the Steady State. Gravity and gravitational forces instead of electromagnetism (QFT or QED). The true fields of study languished.
Why? Why do you think?
