This is precisely WHY I detest modern ‘science.’ This was promoted as a Webb telescope image by a so-called French scientist as a distant ‘star,’ when in fact it was a mere slice of chorizo. a sausage. This ‘stunt’ he alleges- he wanted people to be wary of false images on the web. Hmmm. Maybe he was simply caught.
If humor is the delicacy of the day in the science world, perhaps there have been more manipulative ‘lies’ then we care to imagine. Yes, there have been, and still continue. But more. Once the seed is planted in the mind as to these ‘spectacular images,’ the crayons cannot be put back in the box. They are melted beyond repair. The seeds of fraud are stamped on the mind, and so few care to remove them. Things uncomfortable are hard to face.
This ‘star’ is 6 bazillion light years away, hiding behind dark holes and other stuff ……..but look, we can see it today by the aid of telescopes. No. Telescopes only magnify stupidity when in the hands of circus clowns. I bet even Degrasse and Nye were on board with the air show.
Walt Disney would be proud. But I like the ever-relevant word of God: ‘Be wary of science falsely so-called.’ God’s word: 10. Science: 0
