    “These paragraphs are the key to understanding how someone as ignorant as Repacholi could rise to the position of EMF boss at WHO, and thereby produce worldwide misery. The legal structure in Australia, as in essentially all countries in the world whose legal system is based on the English common-law system, allows someone with a Ph.D. to make knowledge claims without ever forcing the witness to explain how he knows what he claims to know. The Australian legal system, much like that in America, more or less presumes that someone with a Ph.D. “knows.” To trigger this automatic respect, which allows the witness to testify as if God had told him the truth of the facts that he recounts, the witness needs to cement in the judge’s mind the idea that the witness is a “scientist.” Methodologically, this is accomplished by listing the number of times and the different ways in which the witness has functioned as a scientist, or at least apparently so. Matters such as what exactly the witness did, on whose behalf, for what remuneration, with what degree of skill, and to what end are not pertinent to the witness’ task. The idea is simply to list things done, like Homer listing the ships that sailed for Troy, from which the judge can then infer that Repacholi is a scientist and therefore that whatever he says constitutes “knowledge.” Repacholi did not invent this structure, but he exploited it magnificently.”
