Unraveling the Universe of Ideas (Part 1 of N)

When I wrote my (yet unpublished) dissertation examining the influence of Darwinism on the founders of eugenics, I found myself faced with trying to tease out just what is meant by ‘influenced.’  Ie, does Darwinism logically entail eugenics? I felt I needed a model for comprehending those connections.  Think, for example, of W. V. Quine’s […]

Hate

Embarrassed. That’s how I felt awhile back when I came across the ADL’s (Anti-Defamation League) so-called ‘Pyramid of Hate.’  How could an organization focused on preventing genocide fail to understand how genocides occur, and, with disturbing irony, in particular the genocide against the Jews under the Nazis?  Since they were not ashamed at their ignorance, […]

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.  […]

More Atheistic Hubris that Amounts to the Death of Knowledge

One of the things that led me to reject atheism is the realization that most of its arguments, if true, mean that we couldn’t possibly know its true.  It violates what I call “the Golden rule of Epistemology,” which means, basically, “any epistemological approach that undermines epistemology itself must be rejected out of hand.” I […]

How Julian the Apostate Defeated the Church in America

Many people, think Christians only care about abortion and gay marriage. Since that is not true, how did this impression come about?

The Logic of God and Creation and the Ignorance of Atheists

By calling some atheists ignorant, I don’t mean to be rude.   You are not a bad person just because you don’t know something.  However, when you offer an opinion about something, it is usually best to be informed, and, unless you are a propagandist at heart, you should seek to react to the actual view […]

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.

The REAL “Jaffe Memo”

Reconstructed from the original memo itself, this new version of the “Jaffe Memo” brings to light the lengths that proponents of ‘abortions on demand’ were willing to go to implement their agenda.

Enter the Gay Inquisition, and the next phase in the death of the Republic

Not many atheists were killed and tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Loads of heretics were, however. Gays themselves will someday be made to suffer, by gays, by precedent that they helped establish.

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 […]

Imminent Ferguson Mayhem is the Fault of the Residents of Ferguson.

So, we’re about to find out if the officer in Ferguson is going to be indicted, and the rumors floating about seem to suggest that he won’t. After making some remarks about the ‘power structure,’ a protester commented, “I also think we’re not going to get change in this society unless white people are just […]

A Case in Point of Alinsky-Style Politics and Governing: Gruber, Transparency, Taxes, and the Mandate

Gruber: “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get [Obamacare] to pass.”
