Oh, Health Ranger…You Make Me Ill

May 3, 2011

Mike Rangers has a post called “14 signs that the collapse of our modern world has already begun.” If it weren’t so scary to think of how easily people can be conned, it would almost be funny that he’s so wide-ranging in his all-knowingness. That’s the beauty of instant expertise, isn’t it? Just google it, or even better, just pronounce it on your blog with complete and utter confidence in your competence, regardless of your knowledge-base. After all, isn’t that why those heavy hitters at AoA believe they understand complex science that most experts, in order to be experts, spend a decade or more in intense, competitive study, with even more intense testing to prove competency? If you write it down, it makes it real, and it makes it right.

Look, when you copy and paste the title, this comes along for the ride:
Learn more: Learn more! Does the irony ever stop?

So what information does the Health Ranger have to offer his loving masses this time? Why, his signs that the world is moving towards apocalypse.

And here they are:

“#1 – Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis”

Oh my. 

Then the world has been coming towards a collapse forever. Or maybe this is his way of affirming he acknowledges climate change?

“#2 – The silence of the bees”

He alleges there’s a cover up, of course. 

“#3 – The failure of nuclear science”

 Because of Japan. No, seems to me, there was not a failure of science here. Of engineering. Of building. Of bureaucracy. But not of nuclear science.

“#4 – The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks”

How this rises to a coming end of days is a bit beyond me.

“#5 – The rise of the medical police state”

The Hype Ranger writes: “The truth is that the medical system uses guns to force its vaccines and chemotherapy onto children and teens across America.” 

And yet he’s free to write his drivel with no accountability? If they’ll force people to get vaccinated at gun point, you’d think they’d silence him and Mercola.

“#6 – The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures

Adams writes thatReal food is becoming increasingly scarce in our world. You might want to think about starting a home garden…” I guess he skips grocery shopping.

“#7 – The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies”

I’m noticing his defense of his claims is pretty thin and usually links back to himself. Just saying. If this is true, then show it. Relying on availability heuristic and BP and the nuclear reactor in Japan to bolster your claim is not sufficient evidence.

“#8 – The continued GMO contamination of our planet”

Wow: “The use of GMOs is the closest thing to ‘Satanic’ that you’ll find in modern agriculture. The agenda behind this is pure evil.” 

I don’t know about you, but I like some substantive evidence before I consider something evil. Appeal to fear much?

“#9 – The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food (raw milk)”

It’s been a long time since I’ve written this here: Dumbass. I’ve already covered why raw milk is not your friend.

“#10 – The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply”

He has no problem taking that money, though. I’m trying to figure out why he thinks these signs of his signal the coming collapse of our civilization.

“#11 – The plummeting intelligence of the masses”

But, Mike, you rely on that ignorance to sell your products!

“#12 – The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news”

Only if it’s Fox. I kid. Really. Okay, not so much, but that’s NOT mainstream news. I don’t see any indication that mainstream news fabricates. Interviews faux experts and inadvertently passes on bogus information, but I don’t see “complete and utter fabrication.”

“#13 – The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world”

Somebody’s jealous of pharma’s reach. Why is it that licensed and regulated products are essentially the root of all evil but him selling untested, unlicensed, unregulated products is all good?

“#14 – The radioactive contamination of the global food supply

Adams thinks there’s a conspiracy to wipe out mankind?: “The total radiation burden on the human race is now reaching a point of mass infertility. That may be the whole idea, actually.”

Adams closes his mass hysteria post with this: “And be ready for the acceleration of the collapse. Because if you are reading this, you are the future of the human race. You have a duty to stay alive, keep your genes intact, and be around to help create the Next Society after this one crumbles into history.”

Oh, crap, now that’s scary; after all, we’re all going to be infertile. Sigh. And people buy this? Why yes, they do, and they offer additional signs: “Excellant [sic] articles but could do with more info on ‘chem trails’ and the poison they are spilling out.”
