Valtaoja: Astrologia ihan ok, homeopatialääkärit viralta!

Ajattelemisen nimissä Järki-lehti oli valmistellut etukäteen muutamia lyhyitä kysymyksiä Valtaojalle asioista, joiden kanssa järkeä voisi myös käyttää. Varsinainen Valtaojan haastattelu täällä.

 

Uskomushoidot, enkeliparannus, homeopatia: tiedemiehen ja ihmisen näkökulma?

Kuva Jehoshaphat Aspin.

“Tässä niputetaan usein tavattoman laaja skaala kaikennäköistä. Esimerkiksi tähtitieteilijän pitäisi tietenkin hikeentyä kaikkein eniten astrologiasta, tähdistä ennustamisesta ja horoskoopeista, mutta olen elämäni varrella tavannut aika paljon ihmisiä, jotka niitä harrastavat. Se on sitten paremminkin joillakin ihmisillä sellainen elämänhallinnan väline, eräänlainen peili, jonka avulla he pohtivat itseään ja elämäänsä ja valintojansa. Sehän voi joskus olla jopa hyödyllistä, vaikka tietenkin on täysin totaalista huuhaata.

 Sitten taas toisessa päässä on tämmöinen, jota pidän lähinnä rikollisena toimintana: homeopatia, varsinkin jos laillistetut lääkärit homeopaattisia lääkkeitä tarjoavat. Se on niin loppuun saakka tutkittu, että se ei tehoa. Tällaiset uskomushoidothan ovat Suomessakin aiheuttaneet kuolemantapauksia. Minun mielestä Suomessa pitäisi toimia huomattavasti jyrkemmin: lääkärinoikeudet pitäisi ottaa pois kaikilta, jotka homeopatiaa lääkärin arvovallalla tarjoavat potilailleen. Ei pidä sekoittaa placebo-lääkitystä ja sielunhoitoa siihen, että on lääkkeet jotka tepsivät todella tehokkaasti. Lääkärin velvollisuus on määrätä niitä, eikä mitään homeopaattisia hoitoja.”


 

Tupakointi tappaa huomattavasti todennäköisemmin kuin julkisen liikenteen käyttäminen. Julkisen liikenteen käyttäminen taas tappaa todennäköisemmin kuin ydinvoima. Miksi ydinvoima on kuitenkin valittu siksi asiaksi, jota vastustetaan kaikkein voimakkaimmin?

“Tässä kun nyt olen muutaman kymmenisen vuotta kirjoitellut, ehkä jotain 150 kolumnia Turun Sanomiin ja muihinkin lehtiin, sitä tietää muutamat sellaiset aiheet, joista tulee kaikista vihaisinta vastinetta. Niissä sitten vaaditaan, että minut pitää erottaa professorin virasta tai joskus jopa ihan fyysisia uhkauksia. Yksi on tämä linkolalaisuus ja yleensä minkäänlainen ympäristöliikkeen arvostelu. Toinen on uskonnollinen äärilaita, kreationistit ja muut. Kolmas vakio, josta tietää saavansa ihmiset suuttumaan, on juuri ydinvoima.

Vaikkapa toteaa sellaisen yksinkertaisen tosiasian, että Fukushima tappoi nolla ihmistä. Sen sijaan Angela Merkel tappaa tuhat ihmistä vuodessa, kun Fukushiman johdosta [Merkel] päätti lopettaa ydinvoiman käytön Saksassa. Siellä siirrytään massiivisesti fossiilisiin polttoaineisiin, koska vaihtoehtoja ei ole. Ja me tiedetään aivan tarkkaan, paljonko megawattitunti fossiilisilla polttoaineilla tuotettua energiaa tappaa. Yksinkertainen kertolasku todistaa, että Angela Merkel on suurempi ympäristökatastrofi kuin Fukushima.

Nämä on tämmöisiä mielenkiintoisia psykologisia juttuja, jotka olisi muuten huvittavia, paitsi että niissä on äärimmäisen vakavat asiat kyseessä: maapallon tulevaisuus, ympäristön pelastaminen, ihmisen sille aiheuttaman rasituksen pienentäminen. Ne on siinä panoksena, ja itse kunkin pitäisi ottaa lusikka kauniiseen käteen ja vähän ottaa selvää faktoista, eikä vain huutaa ideologisia iskulauseita.”


 

Onko jotain oudointa tai hauskinta näennäisargumenttia, joka olisi jäänyt mieleen?
“Kaikkein kummastuttavin ja huvittavin on ehkä se ‘minähän en mitään asiantuntijoita usko!’ ja asiantuntijat aina lainausmerkeissä. Asiantuntijuus on suurin syy olla uskomatta ihmiseen. Jos vaikka joku ympäristöasiantuntija puhuu vaikka siitä, mitkäs näyttää olevan Talvivaaran todelliset haitat, joku ympäristöministeriön virkamies, joka toimii virkamiesvastuulla, niin monen mielestä se on suunnilleen ihan naurettavaa ja rikollista uskoa sellaiseen. Ennemmin täytyy uskoa Greenpeaceen tai muuhun tahoon, jolla ei ole minkäännäköistä vastuuta siitä, mitä he sanovat. Tämä asiantuntijuuden vähättely on ehkä se kaikkein hämmästyttävin piirre.

Pahimmillaan se luisuu kaikkiin salaliittoteorioihin. Kyllä minäkin olen moneen kertaan kuullut, että olen Talvivaaran tai Fortumin taikka sitten yleisemmin eliitin juoksupoika, joka on taasen maksettu kirjoittamaan tälleen ja tälleen. Se mitä minä aina korostan, on että siitä tulee sellainen lämmin pörröinen tunne, kun saa jonkun oikein suuttumaan! Joskus ärsyttäminen voi olla hyvinkin tehokas keino saada jotain muutosta aikaiseksi. Pistetään oikein seinää vasten, niin kyllä siinä joku aina sitten havahtuu!”


 

Tähän viimeiseksi vielä Valtaojan vinkit järkevään elämään?
“Tietäminen on hauskempaa ja hyödyllisempää kuin luuleminen! Maailma näyttäytyy paljon hauskempana, ihmeellisempänä, parempa paikkana, mitä enemmän siitä tietää – ja mitä vähemmän siitä kuvittelee tietävänsä.”
