Thought for the Day: Who Do You Trust?

"Put not your trust in princes, in man, in whom there is no salvation. When his spirit departs he returns to his earth; on that day his plans perish."  Psalm 146:3-4

Where do you put your trust? Are you a "science person" who thinks only those things that can be tested and verified are real? I know some people like that. A few are atheists. Many are evolutionists. They accept uncritically the belief (faith?) that nothing created everything.

Well, consider some of these facts about scientists and their honesty. Rampant fraud seems to be a characteristic flooding the scientific community. Ethics? Well...let's just say many scientists seem to have the same level of integrity as politicians.

Here are just a few examples to consider before you put your blind trust in the scientific princes of the world:
Scientific Fraud is Rife: "A recent paper in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that since 1973, nearly a thousand biomedical papers have been retracted because someone cheated the system. That's a massive 67% of all biomedical retractions. And the situation is getting worse - last year, Nature reported that the rise in retraction rates has overtaken the rise in the number of papers being published." 
Can Medical Research be Trusted? "The resounding verdict—much as our own five-part series, America’s Healthcare Crisis—is that medical research, medical journals, medical practice guidelines, FDA advisory panels, and doctors—all of who are bankrolled by the pharmaceutical industry—cannot be trusted!"
Science is great. Many of us wouldn't be alive today without antibiotics. I would probably not have my five children and twenty-three grandchildren because I'm Rh negative and required rhogam after each preganncy. But science has its limits and can become a monster in the hands of those who think they have the unlimited right to do whatever happens to be possible. Science without the hand of God is satanic.

Pray for scientists that they will always use their gifts and talents for the good of mankind. "First do no harm" should be the watchword, not only of physicians, but of all scientists.
