‘Science skeptics’ use guerilla warfare tactics and racketeering behavior to infiltrate Wikipedia and spread corporate propaganda

Trusted sources confirmed Gorski has administrative privileges on Wikipedia where he writes and edits content under the username “MastCell.” Under these administrative controls, Gorski and his team of skeptics are thought to have penned a defamatory review of Andrew Wakefield’s documentary VAXXED, a film instrumental in widening the discussion on vaccine safety.

Skeptical activists have taken it upon themselves to debunk and control information viaWikipedia on a variety of topics including vaccine safety, alternative medicine, natural health, homeopathy, cancer treatments, the paranormal, astrology and psychic mediums.

In other words, if a topic does not fit inside mainstream science’s limited paradigm, skeptical activists will go to great lengths to discredit and stifle discussions on topics they consider “quackery.”

Skeptical activists cruise together to collaborate Wiki takeover

A genuinely weird and pathetic bunch, skeptical activists routinely gather at conferences, host “psychic stings,” conduct protests and even take cruises together.

In 1996, magician James Randi founded a nonprofit organization called the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) aimed at “educating the public and the media on the dangers of accepting unproven claims.”

From this organization was born the Amaz!ng Meeting, an annual conference where skeptics gather to purportedly discuss “science, skepticism, and critical thinking,” according to the meeting’s Wikipedia entry, which is almost certainly written by skeptics.
What these so-called skeptics are really doing is organizing an international effort to smear and discredit anything they consider to be “pseudoscience.” This type of collaborated effort is characterized by a pattern of racketeering, as skeptical activists write, edit and promote biased profiles on Wikipedia to generate income, notoriety and legitimacy.At the center of it all is seasoned Wikipedia editor Susan Gerbic, who just so happens to be a close friend of Gorski. Gerbic, we’ve learned, has played a critical role in the infiltration of Wikipedia.

Though she has absolutely no qualifications to do so (her educational background includes a B.A. degree in social history), Gerbic has grown obsessed with “debunking” pseudoscience.

‘Pseudoscience debunker’ lacks background in science!

Gerbic is the co-founder of Monterey County Skeptics and leader of “Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia” (GSoW), whose self-described mission is to “improve skeptical content on Wikipedia… by improving pages of our skeptic spokespeople, providing noteworthy citations, and removing the unsourced claims from paranormal and pseudoscientific pages [emphasis added].”

This is why healthy food advocates like Mike Adams have false and defamatory Wikipediapages.

Gerbic and other skeptics have capitalized on the fact that people view Wikipedia as a “neutral” place to get information, which is why they’ve hijacked it to promote their agenda. Not only do Gerbic and her allies trash opposing viewpoints, but they “improve” Wiki pages for skeptical spokespeople; in other words, they alter the pages to favor their twisted, cult-like community.

propaganda-ministryWhen skeptical spokespeople are in the public eye, “their Wikipedia page views are going to spike… we want to make sure they are getting great information,” says Gerbic. And by “great information,” she of course means information favorable to the “skeptic” community.

Gerbic has been accused of promoting biased pages, deleting hundreds of articles, and banning thousands of contributors on Wikipedia. Gerbic admittedly takes pride in her and her team’s ability to “frustrate editors with opposing views to the extent that editors have given up editing Wikipedia.”

Rupert Sheldrake, a biochemist and plant physiologist trained at Cambridge University accuses Gerbic of propagating “scientific materialism.”

Using skepticism as a weapon

“Scepticism is a normal, healthy attitude of doubt. Unfortunately it can also be used as a weapon to attack opponents. In scientific and medical contexts, organized skepticism is a crusade to propagate scientific materialism,” Sheldrake wrote in his blog.

“Most materialists believe that the mind is nothing more than the physical activity of the brain, psychic phenomena are illusory, and complementary and alternative medical systems are fraudulent, or at best produce placebo effects,” he says, adding that most materialists are also atheists.

“The Guerrilla Skeptics have carried the crusading zeal of organized skepticism into the realm of Wikipedia, and use it as a soapbox to propagate their beliefs.”

Overdosing on herbs

Gerbic and her fellow skeptics have engaged in some pretty bizarre behavior, such as overdosing on homeopathic tablets. Gerbic says she took “80 pellets” of belladonna, a plant with potentially poisonous properties that’s used for Parkinson’s disease, colic and motion sickness, and as a pain killer.

On another occasion, during one of their peculiar gatherings, more than 100 skeptical activists overdosed on coffea cruda, a homeopathic remedy used to induce sleep.

When they’re not overdosing on homeopathic medicine, skeptical activists are actively recruiting. The GSoW website states: “We train – We mentor – Join us.” I don’t know about you, but that phrase alone is enough to send chills up and down my spine.

Stay tuned as Natural News continues to go down the rabbit hole with skeptical activists and their plan to control science-related conversations on Wikipedia. We’ve already been tipped off that their agenda is much more sinister than we’ve documented here.

  1. James Randi – what a poor & sad man he is.
    1) James Randi does not have $1.000.000
    2) James Randi has never owned $1.000.000 in his life
    3) EVER
    James Randi MUST – regardless of any new discoveries – the debunking of past held beliefs – James Randi cannot turn back & say … “oops I was wrong about that one” so certain was he that he knew the truth.
    I looked into what he was skeptical about & discovered that the whole world has moved on since he made his beliefs known – based of old information that is today obsolete.
    I wrote & told him so a few years ago.
    But poor old James Randi / just like poor old Richard Dawkins must maintain their stance – it is their bread & butter.
    It makes me feel, good that I know more than the learned Richard Dawkins, who does not know much at all, in fact.
    These 2 jokers did not ever stop to think that, that which we believe today, we will realize tomorrow, that it was wrong, that we did not have enough information, that we do not know it all, that everyday a thing will come along to disprove what we held as true yesterday.

  2. “they overdosed on homeopathic medicine”
    knowing full well that this is not how homeopathic medicins work & therefore they were safe to swallow gallons of the stuff.
    CUNNING !

  3. “if a topic does not fit into science’s limited paradigm”

    Youtube – Richard Dawkins versus Muhammad’s Buraq horse.
    Richard Dawkins prides himself as being a scientist & a seeker of truth.
    Listen to what he says about the Prophet Muhammad haveing gone to heaven in a winged horse.

    A scientist & seeker of truth would ask –
    * What could have happend to Muhammad to make him believe that he went to heaven on a winged horse.
    * Is Muhammad telling lies …. assuming that he is not telling lies …. then what.
    * Religious men have taken mind enhancing drugs to expand their capacit to the divine – was he under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs.
    * Did he have a vivid dream, so real, that Muhammad believed it to have really happened.
    * Did he have an out of body experience … today science knows that it is possible.
    * Did he Mind Travel through space & time … today science knows that it is possible.
    * Quantum Entanglement is ESP between two particles – also particles can be light years away & still connect.
    * And we also know that time is not at all what we used to believe it to be.
    So, does the great Dawkins believe in Scientific Theory when it is accepted by the scientific fraternity ?
    Or is he much too clever to fall for their rubbish also.
    Poor Old Richard needs to go back to school, his knowledge base is obsolete & physics is not his field of expertise, so he does not understand the concepts.

  4. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE CASE FOR MALARIA HAS BEEN DRAMATICALLY OVERSTATED
    there are too may facts & figures that do not compliment each other
    statistics that contradict each other
    Q:
    so then –
    if all the deaths that are attributed to malaria are not actually due to malaria
    what is killing all these children
    1 child dies every 30 seconds, about 3000 children a day, due to malaria
    but – what if 50% of these children are not dying of malaria but something else ?

  5. George Robert Price – American population geneticist – devised the Price Theorem – describes how a trait of genes changes in frequence over time.

    The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins.
    ME:- it is more likely that it is as a result of a parasitic infestation – not unlike Toxoplasma Gondii – rather than Dawkins selfish gene theory, which, by the way is a reworking of written work by other scientists – there are may who point the finger at Dawkins & say plagiarist.

    While Randi is no more than a desperate wannabe, failed magician – & therefore what he says is of no matter at all inthe world.
    Dawkins runs in the same alignment as the fake photographer Annie Leibovits.

    If you watch Dawkins, his body language has led many, & including prominant persons of influence, to believe that he is Demonically possessed & as a result, have given him a wide berth. Hence the poor fellow has not done very well except in sideshows for TV etc.
    In life it always pays to be a bit respectful of the beliefs of others.

  6. In considering The Selfish Gene theory – & – a talk given by another scientist, who mentioned in passing the parasites capacity to inflitrate the brain & alter the behavior of it’s host, as a means to it’s own end.
    And I concluded that, it is entirely posssible that ape man, dragging his knuckles out in the wilderness, was brought into the sphere of higher intellectual capacity as a result of parasitic infestations of one kind or another.
    A matter of forced learning.
    I put it out there & hey presto.
