A Missouri woman who has attended official meetings on resettling migrants is blowing the whistle on United Nations and federal schemes that she says are quietly flying in huge numbers of unvetted, diseased “refugees” from across Africa and the Middle East — many of whom do not even have a known name — and immediately handing them passports, Social Security numbers, and a vast array of tax-funded benefits. Noting that the overwhelming majority of the migrants she observed were men, she suggested the schemes were an “intentional device” to “invade the United States of America.”
Adding insult to injury, said the woman with knowledge of the program, is the fact that state officials and those involved with processing the new arrivals are being encouraged at official meetings to classify as many of the newcomers as possible as being permanently disabled — especially as having chronic headaches and lower back pain. The purpose of this, she was told, was so the “refugees” could qualify for Social Security long-term disability, allowing them to collect taxpayer money for the rest of their lives despite never having contributed to the already-strained system on its way to bankruptcy.  
“Much to my shock, they wanted us to try to identify them in such a way that they would qualify for long-term Social Security disability,” she explained, adding that the designation was for life and would cost taxpayers a fortune. “So if they get identified as qualifying for long-term Social Security disability, they are as good as set up for life.... It is insanity.” Indeed, one of the first things workers are supposed to do is sign up the new migrants for Social Security, she said. They also receive cash upon arrival.

Also sparking concerns is the fact that the migrants are being shipped in on airplanes under cover of darkness, with the flights arriving late at night after the airports are cleared out of the general public. There is apparently no real vetting going on at all, she said, citing the information she obtained at the official meetings. Senior government officials have also confirmed a lack of serious vetting. In a brief phone interview, the woman explained that the secrecy being pushed by state officials was deliberate and strategic.
“The meetings are technically not secret, but they make it very hard to find them,” said the activist, who has testified on these issues in front of Missouri lawmakers. “They said they wanted to, in their words, ´keep all this information on the down low,´ because there would be people in opposition to the work that they're doing. So they asked that we not discuss the information we received outside of the meetings.” But the activist could not keep silent.
The explosive revelations she offered first received widespread attention across America during an interview with nationally syndicated talk-show host Josh Tolley. The Missouri woman, Jill Noble, who last year began attending UN refugee resettlement program meetings sponsored by Missouri social services, said she very quickly began realizing that something was very wrong. And so, she wanted to share some of the details with the American people. So far, nobody has publicly challenged her allegations, despite widespread publicity surrounding them, she told The New American
In the video-taped interview with Tolley, entitled “Diseased Refugees Obtaining SSN and Passport Upon Arrival,” the activist blows the whistle on a wide range of troubling elements surrounding the program. While President Trump has reduced the flow of refugees, she said, the situation is hardly under control, and the program may be placing all Americans in danger — both from a national security standpoint, and from a public-health perspective.
“It just struck me as curious how casual they were about the number of people that they were bringing into the state of Missouri and how they were being brought in and where they were going and the conditions under which they were being brought in,” she explains to Tolley in the video, which has been seen by over 125,000 viewers. Indeed, the description she provides of what is happening in Missouri — and presumably across America — would shock the overwhelming majority of Americans, regardless of political persuasion.
Among other concerns, Noble highlighted the complete lack of vetting. “Actually they are not vetted and they are not the safest people,” she says, contradicting statements by some politicians and establishment media organs. “We’re being told through mainstream media that they are going from 12 to 18 months worth of vetting, but in the meetings that I have attended I learned that there was no vetting done at all. They were literally given plane tickets and put on a plane right away within 24 hours. And, they were put on the plane with the clothes on their back.” Many of them are being listed on their paperwork as “FUNU,” she said, which stands for “Full Name Unknown.”
Others have confirmed the lack of vetting. “As a recently retired 25-year veteran of the U.S. Department of State who served almost eight years as a refugee coordinator throughout the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Cuba, I have seen first-hand the abuses and fraud that permeate the refugee program and know about the entrenched interests that fight every effort to implement much-needed reform,” wrote former State Department official Mary Doetsch in a February letter published by the Chicago Tribune in support of Trump's efforts.
“Despite claims of enhanced vetting, the reality is that it is virtually impossible to vet an individual who has no type of an official record, particularly in countries compromised by terrorism,” she added. “U.S. immigration officials simply rely on the person’s often rehearsed and fabricated testimony. I have personally seen this on hundreds of occasions.”
Another major concern is the diseases being brought in, many of which had been rare or virtually non-existent in the United States. “Many of them come into country diseased,” explained Noble. “They come in with tuberculosis, leprosy, HIV, giardia, smallpox, polio – communicable diseases, apart from giardia, which is a parasite. They’re coming in with communicable diseases — highly contagious diseases.” Tolley echoed those concerns, citing information received from a doctor in New York who was similarly alarmed at the importation of pathogens and the emergence of a “health hazard to the entire country.” 
Noble also said the media was lying about the demographics of those being brought in. “They're pulling on the heart strings of the American people, we're very compassionate people, and so, knowing that, they pull on the heart strings of the public,” she explained. While the American public is being led to believe the “refugees” are primarily women and children fleeing wars, “the vast majority of the refugees that we've received here in Missouri have been males between the ages of 15 and upwards to 45-years old.”
Tolley pointed out that a similar phenomenon is being observed in Europe, with the UN admitting that over two thirds of the “refugees” are military-aged males — and overwhelmingly Muslim. Noble points out that there have actually been some women and children, including a recent flight carrying refugees from the Congo. Noble said that unlike many of those being brought in, the group of Congolese were clean and well-clothed. And that group was sponsored by a local church, which picked them up and provided clothing, transportation, and more. But they were not the norm, Noble explained. 
Noble and Tolley both make clear that they have no animosity against genuine refugees who truly need protection from persecution — particularly if they plan to return home, as most legitimate refugees fleeing war or natural disaster presumably would once the crisis or danger has passed in their homeland. But they suggested something very different seems to be at work with the UN and federal programs shipping as many migrants as possible into the West, as quickly as possible, primarily men, with no serious vetting, all at taxpayer expense, under cover of darkness, and without even minimal public-health precautions.
The response to Tolley's explosive video has been overwhelmingly positive, with more than 2,250 up-votes compared with less than 100 down-votes on Youtube. Numerous prominent blogs and websites picked up the story, too. And so far, despite the interview having gone viral across the Internet, no official has publicly disputed her allegations.
In addition to her interview with Tolley, Noble has also been giving public speeches and educating Missouri policymakers and elected officials on the dangers of the program. Along with her work on the migration issue, Noble is also an activist who focuses on education. She has testified on these issues and her observations of the UN and federal refugee programs at a committee hearing at the state capitol.

Even states that cancel their participation in the federal-UN refugee schemes are not immune to the massive influx, though. In fact, according to a lawsuit filed by the Thomas More Law Center on behalf of the Tennessee General Assembly, the federal government is violating the Constitution's spending clause and the Tenth Amendment by force feeding “refugees” into the state, using taxpayer-funded “ministries” and “non-profit” organizations to funnel ever-more refugees in, at public expense, despite the state dropping out of the program in 2008. 
President Trump tried to slow down the massive refugee influx by lowering the cap on refugee numbers down to 50,000 refugees for the fiscal year — less than half of what Obama decreed. However, in overturning Trump's executive order on the subject, U.S. judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii and the federal courts re-opened the flood gates. And so, the State Department is once again shipping in UN-designated “refugees” at breakneck speed.
“In accordance with the Court Order, and consistent with both our operational capacity and our capacity under available funding, we have increased the current pace of refugee arrivals to approximately 900 individuals per week,” a spokesperson for the U.S. State Department told journalist Leo Hohmann at WND. Hohmann's latest book, Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration And Resettlement Jihad, argues that Islamists are using the “refugee” schemes to invade the West for nefarious purposes. 
As The New American has reported, the real agenda behind the UN's “refugee” schemes, designed with help from the totalitarian Socialist International alliance, is hardly humanitarian. Instead, the agenda includes, according to critics and architects of the schemes alike, the breaking down of national sovereignty. Top government leaders including Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has also blasted what he termed a “treasonous conspiracy” of “internationalist fanatics” to undermine Western civilization, Christianity, and the nation-state on the road toward “world order.” In fact, the same establishment globalists flooding the West with migrants were largely responsible for destroying the Middle Eastern countries many of the refugees are fleeing. Globalism and Big Government are key to understanding the phenomenon.
If the real goal were truly humanitarian, shipping millions of African and Middle Eastern refugees to Europe and America at taxpayer expense would be among the most absurd strategies imaginable. Estimates suggest the cost of importing a single refugee is 50 times higher than helping the refugees closer to their own countries, meaning for every one imported to re-settle in the West, 50 more must suffer closer to their home countries. Plus, if they remain near their homelands, they can return home to rebuild once the danger has passed.
America's national security and public health are being recklessly put at risk by the UN and the federal government, all to advance a totalitarian agenda. If even some of what Noble has described is true — and so far there is no reason to doubt the accuracy of her testimony — something is clearly very wrong. Congress, Trump, and the states must investigate what is happening. Any programs involving the dictator-dominated UN should be canceled immediately, along with any schemes to flood the West with foreigners for subversive purposes.
Americans are perhaps the most charitable people on the planet. So if they want to help people dealing with war, poverty, and persecution — and no doubt many millions do — there are thousands of fantastic charities and ministries to help with that. But the fact remains that nothing in the U.S. Constitution authorizes any of the schemes described by Noble or the importation of people from around the world at taxpayer expense. And so, the schemes must be shut down.

The 2017 church conference circuit is in full swing and with it comes a plethora of unholy alliances. No surprise, Hillsong and Jesus Culture will headline the apostasy this year. In keeping with Paul’s exhortation from Romans 16:17-18, it behooves pastors and Christians to be aware of the sort of tactics that mainstream movements are using to draw young people to their blasphemous ministries. Two of the more prominent events to be aware of will take place this fall, on back-to-back weekends, on two sides of the country. Each will feature lineups full of known false teachers, and music by Hillsong and Jesus Culture. These alliances allow powerhouse music ministries and their teachers to team up and target millennials with their sensual brand of worship and dangerous theology.
On September 21-23, Los Angeles will play host to the first conference titled, “Heaven Come”, featuring Bill Johnson, his Bethel crew, Lou Engle, and Kris Vallaton; along with Carl Lentz and the Hillsong usuals. It promises to be an epic show. With ticket sales running around $200-$250 a head, and a Microsoft Theater capacity of 7,100, the event will certainly make the gang a pretty penny.
The following week on September 27-30, Jesus Culture will travel south to Orlando, FL to headline the smaller but no less heretical, “Jesus Conference”, where Todd White, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, and Marilyn Hickey, will join a speaker lineup akin to the backstreet boys. Both of these conferences are designed to mix the old school with the new school as a sort of heretical hand off. It’s as though Satan is casting a net into the population of 80 million millennials and trying to drag out as many as he can by using the old guard.
So why are the 2017 heretical hangouts something you ought to be aware of? Because Christians who are clueless to enemy strategies are sitting ducks and churches who can’t confidently explain to their young people why they must avoid these types of conferences are unable to effectively keep watch over the souls of their sheep (Hebrews 13:17). Cowering in fear is not an option. Hoping it will all blow over is not an option. Not giving answers is not an option. If you aren’t sure what false doctrines are in play here, study the essential beliefs of historical Christianity in relation to the Deity of Christ, Salvation, the Trinity (particularly the work of the Holy Spirit), according to Scripture. Next, compare that to what “word of faith theology”, “little god theology”, “prosperity gospel theology”, and the “NAR”, teach and do in the name of “Jesus Christ.” That will get you all caught up on why these groups are heretical.
I recently spent time with a friend who attends a bible teaching church in the LA area and he was sharing with me some troubling news. His church was losing young people in droves to Hillsong LA and other more “attractional” music-driven venues. They couldn’t stop it. Their youth and young adults had found something that tapped into their emotions, made them feel good, and seemed to be full of love. Ignorant of the deadly doctrines that Hillsong teaches and supports, indifference had swept over many of the young people in the church and they were simply buying in to the cool vibe of the music and ecumenical vision. I could sense the strain in his voice as he explained that this was his fear all along. Plenty of churches have spent wasted time voicing their displeasure over the methods and style of Hillsong, but few have effectively pinpointed them as outright false teachers. Perhaps out of fear of taking on the most famous business in the evangelical world, the body of Christ at large has stayed relatively divided on what to do about these popular preachers.
Many pastors struggle to find a balance. Should they bring up these issues publically and risk exposing the sheep to things they may have never even heard of? How soon is too soon to start sounding the alarm about certain movements? Do first-time visitors really want to come back to a church that just harps on false teachers all the time? Is the best way to deal with a counterfeit to study and know the real thing? How many well-prepared sermons would be derailed if we had to spend time going “heretic hunting” on Sunday mornings?
All of these are valid questions that pastors and people must face head on. The church needs to consistently provide answers and must avoid wasting valuable time cowering in fear, while still being careful of over-emphasizing the latest heretical gossip without providing solutions (something we can all be guilty of).
As church leaders navigate the theological chaos that movements like Jesus Culture and Hillsong pump into the evangelical ecosystem, here are five ways to protect our young people, and the rest of the church for that matter. Keep in mind, this list will apply directly to pastors, but can be useful for any Christian and parent.
Nothing equips and empowers God’s people like His word. You don’t learn to identify counterfeit money by studying the counterfeits. If you study genuine currency and become highly familiar with the qualities of the real thing, then you’ll be able to spot a fake from a mile away. In order to best equip the people of God to contend for the truths of God, they must be faithfully taught the Scriptures in the fullest sense. A church must place a premium on its preaching ministry. The pastor can let a missionary share stories from the mission field, make a few announcements, and grant the odd request from the nursery leader to ask for more volunteers, but such things are frivolous when compared to the purpose of the pulpit. He must be undeterred in his task and the people must be ready to feast on the word. The elders of the church must ensure nothing takes away from the preaching ministry of a church. The people need it. They must have it. As for strategies against false teaching, sermon series’ and seminars on heretical teaching can be incredibly helpful for people, but are only as helpful as their application. In other words, if you’re doing any type of teaching on this issue, you must focus on what the Bible says, not just how ridiculous a false teacher looks, or how rich they are – that’s tabloid fare. Make no mistake, preaching the truth and prioritizing the pulpit ministry is the best way to protect people against error.
One of my college coaches used to yell in his pre-game speech, “Preparation is confidence!” It was true on the baseball field and it’s true in shepherding the flock of God. When dealing with a certain error or heresy that Hillsong or Jesus Culture teach, know your stuff and be prepared. People can sniff out a phony from miles away so if pastors are even slightly unclear in their own understanding of the issues, it will be a fog to their listeners. If a pastor hasn’t been praying, preparing, and prudent with the responsibility to rightly divide the word and shepherd God’s people through times of apostasy, they’re going to react fearfully, not confidently on game day. It’s a leader’s job to be out front of those they lead – and it’s advisable that every Christian parent take this strategy for the sake of their children. When people ask theological questions about a certain celebrity pastor, a conference, or a certain book, they need leaders to calmly, lovingly, and biblically state the answer to their question. This will of course mean that leaders have studied the issue, studied their bible, and have taken the time to emotionally process the issue before helping others deal with it. If you don’t know the answer, know how to find the answer for someone. Be unwavering and confident because you’re prepared for what the bible said would happen in the last days (2 Timothy 3:1-17).
If a boy pulls up to my house in a Mustang one day and honks from the curb while my daughter comes down the stairs in a short skirt saying, “Bye dad, be home around midnight”, you’re going to see some righteous passion. Beyond that, I’ve likely failed in my duty prior to that moment. If a false teacher is targeting our young people with sensual music undergirded by deadly theology about a false version of Christ, pastors need to have some passion and proactively guard against this! We’ve seen far too many pastors get more excited over new state-of-the-art buildings, new children’s ministry playgrounds, new books, and their elaborate libraries than over contending for the faith. There is nothing wrong with any of those things but they are still superficial. Too many pastors shelf their passion and cower in fear when it comes time to protect the flock from wolves. Controversy should never deter a pastor from protecting the sheep. Wolves love a weak shepherd who is content to collect a paycheck but too lazy to gird his loins for battle. Far too many pastors skirt around issues, refuse to name a name, or prefer to talk about these sort of issues in a passive aggressive way. Ignorant sheep are one thing, slothful pastors are another. There is no place for this in a biblical church.
As previously stated, the majority of Sunday sermons cannot just be a heresy hunt. That’s where many well-meaning churches have gone too extreme these days. In order to help people get educated about the larger doctrinal issues facing the church consider the following options:
  • Starting a blog for your church
  • Writing a short booklet or book(s) to help your people navigate apostasy and more
  • Do a weekly or monthly podcast about current events and theology
  • Start a YouTube channel
  • Do a short series on deadly doctrines, film it, and use the DVD as a resource for years
  • Write a distinctive or church document stating your church’s position and distribute
  • Mention divergence in the church when your preaching text does – this is plenty of times.
This is just a short list of ways to put out helpful material for your people and deal with important issues without taking two weeks off from your verse-by-verse journey through John to vent about Steven Furtick’s latest antics. If your schedule or ability doesn’t allow you to protect the flock through any of these means, you always have books, seminars, and blogs by faithful bible-teachers at your disposal. No matter what a pastor decides to do, he must do something. People need good, biblical preaching from the pulpit and material that helps them contend for the faith in today’s culture. Keep the juicy venting to a minimum and stick to high application in your material. Your people will thank you because they won’t just know about the latest heretical gossip, they’ll actually know what to do about it.
For all his passionate zeal and willingness to take on false teachers, Paul was diligent in his prayer life. It wasn’t just his warnings, just his teaching, or just his appointment of faithful men to church oversight – it was his prayers that protected the faith of the church. For the church’s best results, prayer is the highest priority. Paul wrote,
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints,  I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, what are the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His great might that He worked in Christ when He raised him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things under His feet and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:15-23).
There will be no slowing down of apostasy in these last days. Our adversary takes no day off. Still, the church must remain diligent in its task and preachers must be resolute in trusting the power of prayer, the power of truth, and the power of God to draw every last one of His sheep into the fold until Christ returns.

 INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Indiana Senate has passed a bill meant to protect 
religious expression in public schools.
H.B. 1024 passed 44-5 on Thursday despite opposition from groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
“House Bill 1024 only puts prayer back into schools. It does not mandate or force students to participate in it,” said sponsor Rep. John Bartlett, D-Indianapolis. “It is giving Hoosiers the ability to express their faith without fearing discrimination.”
“It also brings clarification to the First Amendment, which allows people to practice their faith. However, it restricts you from forcing your faith on others,” he said.

The bill passed the passed the House 83-12 last month, and went on to clear a Senate Committee 8-2 weeks later.
“Public school students may pray or engage in religious activities or religious expressions before, during, and after the school day in the same manner and to the same extent that students may engage in nonreligious activities or expression,” the legislation reads in part.
It additionally outlines that students are to be permitted to wear religious symbols or slogans on their clothes or jewelry, and must not be discriminated against for including religious themes in their school assignments.

A section of the bill that called for the creation of a limited public forum at school events was removed in a Senate committee earlier this month due to concerns about logistics.
“It requires the schools proactively to develop policies that control certain kinds of public events,” Sen. Luke Kenley, R-Noblesville, remarked. “And I think the bill itself is going to be somewhat of a challenge for schools and school corporations to implement. But I think it serves a worthy purpose, and I think section five pushes it just a little too hard in that regard.”
Sen. Mark Stoops, D-Bloomington, proposed to add voucher schools to the bill, but the idea was struck down in committee.
“In fairness, any school that receives public funding should fall under this bill,” he opined. “And again I think that if it’s good for public schools and charter schools, it would also be necessary for private schools that received vouchers.”
While some believe that the legislation is unnecessary, Bartlett says that the move will help provide guidance for schools that aren’t sure how to handle expressions of faith on campus.
“A lot of schools are afraid to have prayer in schools or allow their students to pray because they are afraid of a lawsuit,” he stated.
Student Mary Zakrajsek testified before the Senate Education and Career Development Committee that her pro-life poster had been removed from the walls of Carmel High School while other messages were allowed to be posted.
“When I walk down the hallway, and I see rainbow pride flags and Democrat donkeys, I think that’s pretty clear evidence of ideology that is promoted in public school systems. It became clear that it was our [pro-life] club in particular that was being discriminated against,” she testified, according to the Herald Bulletin.
As previously reported, the first textbook used in the American colonies even before the nation’s founding, “The New England Primer,” was largely focused on the Scriptures, and was stated to be popular in public and private schools alike until approximately the early 1900’s. It used mostly the King James Bible as reference, and spoke much about sin, salvation and proper behavior.
“Save me, O God, from evil all this day long, and let me love and serve Thee forever, for the sake of Jesus Christ, Thy Son,” it read.
Many of the Founders’ children learned to read from the primer.
Noah Webster’s famous “Blue Back Speller” also referenced Christianity, including in reading lessons statements such as “The preacher is to preach the gospel,” “Blasphemy is contemptuous treatment of God,” and “We do not like to see our own sins.” Webster is known as the father of American education.

 A prominent Creation science group is pushing back after 
their website was included on a widely-shared list of allegedly 
untrustworthy sources and described as “junk science.”
After “fake news” became a subject of national discussion during the 2016 presidential election, Melissa Zimdars, an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College, compiled an online document that lists disreputable websites and news sources.
Originally created as a resource for her students, Zimdars’s document lists hundreds of “false, misleading, clickbait-y, and satirical” websites.
“Obviously, fake news is a major problem,” Zimdars wrote in a column for The Washington Post. “We need to make sure people have the tools to detect it, and we need to understand why people may purposefully share news they know to be fake—maybe they’re being malicious, they think it’s funny or it aligns with what they want to be true. And we definitely need to find ways to discourage the production of non-comedy, non-satire fake news.”

Zimdars’s document has since been widely shared on social media sites and spotlighted by numerous news outlets. Harvard University published a link to the list on their library’s “Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda” page, along with an infographic warning students not to get “taken in” by fake news.
Although Zimdars noted that not all of the sources in her list are “inherently problematic,” they do tend to distort headlines, publish dubious information and mislead readers.
One of the sites included on the professor’s document is, the website of the Institute for Creation Research. Zimdar tagged the group’s website as “junk science,” which she defines as “sources that promote pseudoscience, metaphysics, naturalistic fallacies, and other scientifically dubious claims.”

In a blog post published on Monday, Brian Thomas of ICR contested the “junk science” label and defended the organization’s reputability.
“Junk science describes conclusive-sounding statements with no support from experiment or observation,” Thomas argued. “Examples of junk science include flat earth theories, manipulated climate reports, and a variety of unproven health-related claims. It should also include areas like astrobiology—meaning ‘space life’—that have zero study samples.”
Not only does ICR’s team try to expose junk science, Thomas said, but research on their website has been published by secular sources.
“ contains thousands of science articles that painstakingly reference original technical science sources,” he wrote. “For example, our report of an enzyme that locates DNA damage sites using an ingenious electrical current detector was not just junk. The journal Theoretical Biology & Medical Modeling published those research results.”
“Our report on a Psittacosaurus fossil from China with original skin, including its original skin shade patterns, was not just junk. The source research was published in Current Biology,” Thomas added.
The ICR team’s belief in the biblical worldview is what sets them apart from other science groups, Thomas noted.
“When we report on the good science behind stunning ingenuity in DNA repair enzymes, for example, we feel free to credit the Creator,” he stated. “When we report on the good science behind preservation of short-lived tissues still persisting in dinosaur and other fossils, we feel free to include the Bible’s recent Flood as a reasonable explanation. Today’s anti-Creator, anti-Bible attitudes clearly clash with this biblical history.”
“Many find it easier to simply label the Bible as ‘junk’ than to actually investigate it. If they peered inside, they would find that the Bible is painfully true, to the point that it exposes the junk that inhabits every human heart,” he continued. “We challenge readers to search for legitimate junk on, having confidence that peering into’s nearly half-century worth of content similarly reveals a long trend of good science—conclusions based on experimental results and reliable eyewitnesses.”
