Alternative Aviation

Auf dem relativ neuen Blog Science-Based Medicine wurde vor ein paar Tagen ein Post veröffentlicht, der die Denkweise der Alternativen Medizin mit einem Vergleich erkärt: der Alternative Flug. Sehr witzig, extrem empfehlenswert!
Das liest sich teilweise auch wie der Stuß, den Kreationisten oder die Anhänger des Intelligent Design in ihrem pseudowissenschaftlichen Slang verzapfen:


The underlying philosophy of AA is simple. People need to be free to choose their mode of flight based on alternative concepts of gravity and alternative airplane design.

Current Western reductionist concepts of gravity revolve around European white men and their understanding of the universe through the scientific ‘method’ of experimentation. The current concept of gravity from Einstein and his Theory of Relativity, whereby ‘mass’ causes ‘space-time’ to ‘warp’ and this is what Science calls gravity. This theory (and remember it is just a theory) is only one narrow way of defining gravity, one way of knowing gravity. There are other ways of knowing and an equal number of ways to understand gravity and flight. Alternative aviation operates using holistic, environmentally friendly, passenger centric methodologies the allow the passenger to be involved with all aspects of their airline flight. By actively applying the concepts of complementary and alternative medicine to the airline industry the successful revolution that has occurred in health care can now be seen in air transportation.

Aber am besten gelungen fand ich den Absatz zum homöopathischen Flug:
Aviation based on principals of homeopathy is especially promising. Airplanes, once they have flown their route, remember the route due to the principals of quantum complementarity. Then by making the planes smaller and slower by repeated factors of 10, planes can carry more passengers, go faster and farther with each aeronautic dilution.
