THE DISGRACEFUL NEW ZEALAND ROYAL SOCIETY – Bob Jones
The New Zealand Royal Society continues to disgrace its British parent body’s prescribed rationale of absolute respect for factual scientific evidence, every time it touches on maori issues.
Its latest unadulterated nonsense, published over the heading “New Research Shows Maori Travelled to the Antarctic at least 1000 Years Before Europeans”, showed no such thing.
The so-called “research” by a conservation biologist Priscilla Wehi, was based on oral history mythology and the rest was speculation. One of her colleagues, a Dr Billy van Uitregt added by way of attempted further explanation, “Oral tradition brought richness to the conversation”; precisely what conversation about what, he didn’t say.
Billy added, “It highlights the limitations of the written narratives that we have, that I don’t think can be captured in written word”. Sheer bloody gibberish, specifically the verbiage removed he’s saying contradictorily, the written narratives can’t be captured in writing, not surprising anyway, as pre-European maori certainly had no writing.
That aside, notwithstanding the Royal Society’s “1000 years” heading, these clowns actually claim maoris discovered the Antarctic 1,400 years ago.......
