The Skubala Missives, Letter 1

To the Most Eminent Secretary Kugelpuss: It is of course with the most earnest trepidation that I bring a matter of great importance to your attention.  Your reputation precedes you, but I will be an enigma to you.  Lest you mistake your resume as a warrant for any response you deem appropriate, I must sketch […]

Missing the Point on Bill Nye

Judging from my Facebook home feed, Bill Nye has (once again) said some things monumentally stupid. As I scanned the episodes in his Netflix series “Bill Nye Saves the World,” I was reminded of Joel Achenbach’s March, 2015, National Geographic article titled, “Why Do Many Reasonable People Doubt Science?” Achenbach says something very revealing about […]

Review: Richard Weikart’s “The Death of Humanity and the Case for Life”

In a recent post, I argued that one of the tell-tale signs of whether or not a viewpoint does not correspond with reality is whether or not it results in death; one’s own death, or the death of another, or many others.  Supposedly, humans these days are smarter than any humans that have ever existed.  […]

China Lifts One-Child Policy; Few Know It was Instigated and Applauded by Western Liberals

China’s ‘one-child’ policy is a failure… of western liberal philosophies.

If Darwin was Right, Disabled People Should be Killed

Or, at least not allowed to procreate! I have been  studying the interplay between Darwinism and the ‘elimination of defectives’ for almost ten years, ever since my wife and I were counseled to abort our daughter, diagnosed with spina bifida.  We told the doc to go pound sand.  Our daughter is now almost 8, and […]

The Drone Wars: Introduction

Your first inclination when I refer to ‘the drone wars’ is probably to the unmanned (but sometimes armed) aerial vehicles that are clogging air spaces and the public imagination, but in fact this is the title of a new series that I will be working on inspired slightly from the Star Wars episode, The Clone […]

Why 5th Graders Should Have Anal Sex and Other Arguments for Abstinence

Fifth graders everywhere should have sex and anal sex. This (common core compatible?) school curriculum will show them exactly how to do it. Oh, and urge them to be abstinent.

Frieden and Obama’s “prior ideological commitment”: Utilitarianism.

A little self-governance for a change would be just what the doctor ordered in the face of Obama and Frieden’s “catastrophic incompetence or prior ideological commitment.”

Ebola: One more symptom that we are on our own, courtesy of the Hedonist-in-Chief.

Americans are increasingly coming to the conclusion that they are “on their own.” The feeling is that their own government is prepared to sacrifice them for the ’cause.’ This can’t end well.

Some Vaccines Are Made from the Remains of Aborted Babies–So What? The ‘silver lining’ argument rebutted.

Some vaccines are produced using the cell lines derived from aborted children. Isn’t vaccination making the best out of a bad situation? But what if ‘making the best out of a bad situation’ is a recipe for creating even more ‘badness?’

Open Letter to Everyone but Richard Dawkins

Never mind that Dawkins was rude. Was he wrong?

Open Letter to Everyone But Richard Dawkins, Part Two

In the first part I sought to tease out the basis for Dawkins’ claim that what he said “follows logically from the ordinary pro-choice stance.” It is to the reader to decide if my analysis is correct, and if not, what the real basis is. It is important, however, to understand that Dawkins is not […]

The Crux: It is about Sex at Any Price

No one wants to be told that they cannot play with their toy. No one wants to be told that their toy might even be dangerous in certain contexts–like the child that wishes to play baseball in the living room does not like being told to take the baseball bat and ball into the field, where that toy is more appropriate–or, that they shouldn’t bash people in the head with the baseball bat.
