DON’T READ THIS – ROBERT LANZA IS A COCK

Robert Lanza, fairy tale fantasist cohort of ignoramus Deepak Chopra, has demanded that certain blog posts critical of his unscientific, ginned up, fake ass, bullshit stack of fuzzy hope crap on a cracker be removed from the internets.

He has contacted the hosts of Science Blogs and, with specific reference to PZ Myers (and a few others), Lanza insists that certain specific commentary be taken down…or else…or else…
Anyone?
Anyone?
Beuller?
Beuller?

Just to review, in one post, PZ said:

Another tactic that believers resort to, other than pseudohistory, is pseudoscience. This is remarkably popular, especially among the New Agey set, and the usual science that gets mangled is physics. The quantum is usually involved, too. I’m sure he wouldn’t want to be an exception, so when Robert Lanza asks in the Huffington Post (you already know what kind of fluff you’re going to get from the information given just this far), “Does Death Exist? New Theory Says ‘No'”, you can count on yet more nonsense.

Lanza has respectable credentials as a stem cell biologist, but he’s also the author of one of those all-encompassing, total-explanation-of-the-universe, crackpot theories, which is his, and which belongs entirely to him, called “biocentrism.” We know this because his tag line in the article is “Robert Lanza, MD is considered one of the leading scientists in the world. He is the author of “Biocentrism,” a book that lays out his theory of everything.” I’ve noticed that leading scientists tend not to have to introduce themselves by declaring that they are a leading scientist, but that’s another issue.

Another post, I reproduce in it’s entirety:

Grandpa Simpson is that old character in the animated show who tells odd, rambling stories. “We can’t bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell ’em stories that don’t go anywhere – like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ’em. ‘Give me five bees for a quarter,’ you’d say.” That sort of thing.

Grandpa has been hired by the Huffington post, and is writing stuff under the pen name of Robert Lanza. For instance, he’s got a fascinatingly weird tale up titled “What Happens When You Die? Evidence Suggests Time Simply Reboots”. Now if you or I were writing something with that title, we’d probably write something about what happens after we die, or about time, or maybe we’d get really ambitious and write about some evidence linking the two. Not Grandpa Lanza! No, we learn that when he was a boy, his hobby was killing small mammals by torture, until one day a blacksmith destroyed his trap and gave him a new mission in life. “I’ll give you 50 cents for every dragonfly you catch,” the old man said, and when the excited Little Lanza had caught one, the blacksmith made a model dragonfly out of iron rods. Oh, and he fixed a squeaky chimney cap by blowing it away with a shotgun. But it’s not dead! He’s sure it’s squeaking somewhere.

Someone needs to explain to Grandpa Lanza that the plural of anecdote is not data. And neither is the plural of senile rambling.

So, even without there being any likelihood at all of Lanza succeeding in scrubbing the internet of valid critiques of his lame ass thinking and shabby hucksterism presented by his peers and betters, I am pleased to copy and link to the foregoing posts in the hope that it will assist the search strings “Robert Lanza is full of shit”, “Robert Lanza is a muddle headed buffoon”, “Robert Lanza makes shit up”, and “Get fucked, Robert Lanza, you simpering, backward cockhead” just a little more searchable in the googleverse.

  1. If he’s one of the leading scientists, how come I never heard of him

  2. Because you lack the quantum energy to rid your body of toxins, thereby clarifying your mind so you can live forever. Duh.

  3. yep how to say to mister lanza he is totally wrong when he talks about quantum mechanics???

  4. Forget the science, or the rightness or wrongness of the debate, this is all about the fucking ego required to try this!

    I hope this bad precedent goes nowhere.

  5. He’s not the best scientist in the world because you haven’t heard of him – seriously, he is a Wakefield professor
    He clonned the first cell – pioneered the most important science biology has right now, the only person to have FDA approval to implant and has developed rewound stem cells that will probably cure 70 % of blindness for a start

    Just because he’s not on tv does not mean he’s not the best scientist in the world maybe you should be a little more sceptical of your own media driven world view

    As for the article it’s poorly written with profanity and is just pathetic you have attacked the person not the data now that is the no1 phony unbeliever method

    And the other comments are just pathetic sarcasm

    I know this reply will mean nothing to anyone on here because I forgot to try and sell you jeans or some other worthless product in a fifteen minute commercial

    Wake up – ratm

  6. Cousin Avi,

    This rant reads like it was written by a scared fucking idiot. Robert Lanza has never even stated that he’s correct. He states outright it is all a a theory and an “out and out challenge” to physics. So, if you have a better explanation for everything, let’s hear it! We’re fucking primitive ass cavepeople living on a ball of molten rock and iron spinning around the universe. You sir, have no more an idea of what is going on behind the physical fabric of reality (the 2% or so of the universe) that we perceive than the rest of us….

    Oh yeah, don’t go to England…

  7. I do love people who put there argument foreward with fuck this fuck that so mmm American wonderful to think that this sub species still are alive and kicking. Lo fucking L

    • I do love people who criticize my salty language but can’t decide which version of there/they’re/there to employ. Fuck off you illiterate fainting spell.

  8. Having credentials in real science has nothing to do with an unproven crackpot theory called biocentrism. He is probably a closet creationist.
