The Curse of Genetic Testing Multiplied by 3,500

An article I read today announces that they have found a way to test for 3,500 genetic faults, raising concerns (the article says) about the ethical implications.  The story veers headlong into a sustained bout of research that I am currently engaged in, research that began by wanting to answer the basic question “how does  […]


The Binding Laws Governing our Present Intellectual Anarchy

Get this on your E-reader using this link and coupon for 100% off:  ZC29N I must at the outset admit the debt owed to GK Chesterton, for it was on the third reading of his “Eugenics and Other Evils” that his comments about ‘the anarchy from above’ finally made sense.  They made sense because they […]


Let us Eat Babies, but Not Until We’ve Had Sex with Them–THEN Eat them

cooked baby that has not been previously violated

I recently came across an article talking about how the South Koreans have intercepted capsules filled with ground up aborted fetuses (some of us prefer the more archaic term, ‘babies,’ but I don’t want to be accused of emotionalizing the topic) en route from China to Japan, where, we are told, it is believed that […]


No Lawsuit Against PZ Myers is Forthcoming


It is not my purpose to ‘litigate’ this matter in this post. It is my desire to get this out in the open. PZ Myers is a professor for a tax-payer supported state university in Minnesota, and as a putative academic, one expects a certain level of professionalism and integrity. I have decided that I, personally, should not pursue this further. As a citizen of the United States, I have the right to protect myself under the law. As a citizen of another Country, I have to conduct myself under different laws, and I have decided that this particular one falls under ‘do not resist an evil person.’


Reducing Health Care Costs by Reducing Pregnancies

The culture of death is rarely honest about its beliefs and values. All the more reason for those of us in the pro-life community to keep our eye on the ball. If we got rid of abortion on demand, but erected the apparatus that the elites are trying to build, I assure you, the only thing that will change is the group of people that falls under their scrutiny. Probably the old, most certainly the disabled. But also targeted: those who smoke, who drink, who eat sugar, or trans fat, or engage in ‘unhealthy lifestyles.’ I would say that tyranny is right around the corner, but that last sentence should give us the real truth: it is inside the door, and sitting at our couches… and trying to make itself at home, at our own invitation.


After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? Or, What is the proper response to killing newborn children because they are a burden to a family… or society?

authors Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva argue that the same arguments that justify abortion of the fetus on demand likewise apply to the newly born. Here is the abstract:

Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.


Jaffe Memo Part 10, Religious principles that secularists have and why it matters

I have now spilled much ink contending for the proposition that religion and politics must mix, using the Jaffe memo as my leaping off point.  On the face of it, such a proposition would fly in the face of the notion of a ‘separation between church and state.’  However, it is important to note that […]
