Chris French is a condescending, know-it-all prat who pops up on any mainstream medium (no not that kind of medium) just to denigrate all things unexplained. He’s not picky, he’s not selective, to Professor Christopher Charles French pretty much everything unexplainable is the work of charlatans and con-artists. If you’ve never heard of the man you can catch him on numerous anti-numinous “documentaries” as he debunks everything from aliens to palm readers. He’s the type of person who makes it his life’s work to confute conspiracy theories, mock metaphysics, poo-poo the paranormal, and scoff at psychics. His Guardian articles too, are overflowing with his constant belittling, he is a one-man methodical army, a saviour of all things scientific, this super-skeptic is here to crusade against all strange phenomena and mock all things supernatural, Chris French is here to save us all from the unknown.
Moving away from French for a moment, it seems that mainstream science is slowly becoming the incontestable doctrine of today. And yet if we unequivocally believed in all of science’s claims, we’d still be piddling about on a Flat Earth in a Static Universe, waiting for Spontaneous Generation, believing in the existence of Phlogiston, and taking Phrenology seriously; Scientists aren’t always correct. Science which has become contemporary society’s clandestine religion encourages everybody to wait for proof rather than rely on belief and yet within these moronic restraints, they want us all to believe in the existence of things such as the Missing Link, oh yes… without any frigging proof… more hypocritic than Hippocratic don’t you think? Mainstream Scientists seem to be the modern equivalent of an infallible religious leader, in the past we had Krishna, Moses, and Jesus, and now we have Darwin, Einstein, and Hawking. But if science can’t explain something as simple as the yawn, why do they expect us all to wait on tenterhooks until one of their scientific saints solves the realms of the paranormal? If masses of us can see it or feel it, surely we don’t need a scientist to tell us it’s real?
As science progresses, slowly it seems to co-opt certain aspects of the greater spiritual world. Branches of science such as quantum mechanics and notions such as string theory slowly incorporate ideas most humans already thought or felt. The soul and the afterlife may be proven by quantum physics, ghosts, apparitions, déjà vu, and premonitions may be glimpses of parallel dimensions, I guess these clever dicks can keep extending the five senses beyond the ten or twenty they have today to account for everything they currently label as “Extra Sensory Perception”. So until some state-approved boffin with a clipboard and a stick up his arse proves the inklings and gut feelings we all have, people like Chris French will continue to sit atop their high horse, gazing down at the spiritual and theological scum that litters their completely explainable scientific Earth.
It isn’t healthy to believe everything you’re told, but being a knee-jerk sceptic is just as bad, I’m not even a religious person, but after seeing and hearing French speak, I’m more inclined to say I believe in everything supernatural and spiritual just out of spite.
With a smug expression and a smirk that has the ability to scare away spooks and ghouls, French seems to revel in being the face of scepticism even though he’s more qualified to be the face of condescension. Although it can’t be scientifically proven, the man is a Grade-A twat.
Pardon My French.
