If you have studied any area of science on your own or in school, you may have noticed there are many differing beliefs in the scientific world. For nearly every theory or ‘fact,’ there appears to be an opposing one, or many. While this statement seems impossible given that science is supposed to be based on evidence that produces provable theories, it is a delusion not to realize that much of what is strictly believed in the scientific world is only believed because it has already been accepted by the mainstream and therefore no longer questioned — much like what takes place within religion. This is not to say that there aren’t amazing scientists out there coming up with profound findings and adding powerful contributions to all fields. I simply wish to highlight the fact that, in the mainstream world, science is “stuck,” or, perhaps more accurately, we have put a freeze on certain areas of science.

“How can science be stuck? You are missing the point of science! Science is not a thing, it’s a method!”

While I totally agree that science is a method, what I am suggesting in this article is that many of the theories we have come to believe that science as a pillared institution has produced have been scientifically proven to be incorrect, yet we continue to go along with them. This happens because, in many cases, we are no longer using the scientific method as it is meant to be used. Rather than progressing to the stage in the method where we are supposed to go back and a redevelop a hypothesis after evidence proves the the initial theory wrong, we instead get stuck in maintaining our initial belief because other factors like money, fear, ego, and pride get in the way.

I have been researching many areas of science, world events, health, etc. over the past six years. I did not learn what I know in school, as I left before completing any degrees, and I wholeheartedly believe that my lack of formal education has been a gift in many ways. Very often we can get stuck on the idea that what we have learned in school is absolute Truth. It’s prestigious, so it can’t be wrong, right? Heck, we paid thousands of dollars for it so it MUST be true. Yet the more I look at the ‘uneducated’ people who are making scientific discoveries in the world, the more I see educated people becoming livid at their presumption, as if their findings simply couldn’t be true because they didn’t jump through the same hoops. I have heard the statement “It’s pseudo-science” just about anytime a belief is challenged. A new finding requires many peer reviews for it to be taken seriously, but preexisting mainstream beliefs require none and can be written on a cereal box yet still taken for absolute fact. We have a major challenge on our hands in that we truly struggle to keep our emotions out of how we view and perceive our world. This is not our nature, but simply our egos taking hold of the situation.



Rupert Sheldrake outlines 10 dogmas he has found to exist within mainstream science today. He states that when you look at each of these scientifically, you see that they are not actually true.

1. Nature is mechanical or machine like

2. All matter is unconscious

3. The laws or constants of nature are fixed

4. The total amount of matter and energy is always the same

5. Nature is purposeless

6. Biological heredity is material

7. Memories are stored inside your brain

8. Your mind is inside your head

9. Psychic phenomena like telepathy is not possible

10. Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that works

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
