The gamers of World War Two Online can ‘unsub.’ The programmers can ‘tweak’ the physics of the game to try to address the myriad of mostly contradictory demands that their paying game base demand; but there is always a cost to these changes. There is a diminishing of the ‘joy’ of participating in the universe as more ad hoc changes are programmed in. The programmers have to make accommodations, or else they risk going hungry, or worse! their universe ceasing to exist altogether. That is the price of intransigent threats of withdrawing from the game. But God cannot be held hostage in this way.

Have you heard about this case where a man has been filing petition after petition demanding the right to marry his computer? The article cites other precedents, such as people being able to marry dolphins and cardboard cutouts of themselves. On this blog, I gave the example of the person who married a pillow–although I […]

China is merely “beating us at our own game.” It was the US that first conceived of the ‘one child’ policy.

Today’s headline on the Drudge Report did not surprise me in the slightest: ABORTED BABIES INCINERATED TO HEAT HOSPITALS The article linked to is this one in the Telegraph: Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals: The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used […]

Not too long ago I had someone pitch me a book. The book had good potential, but needed some revisions. As in other cases in my experience, the author was ready to participate in the marketing of the book, but by that it seemed clear that it was going to be publisher-initiated. The author expected […]

I have noticed an increase in massive marches and demonstrations in the United States over the last ten years. Some see this as a healthy by-product of democracy. I think it is the opposite. I think it is an indicator that democracy is in some stage of collapse. Certainly, any legitimate democracy should grant a free right to assemble, but that the people feel they have to assemble in the first place in order for anything to get done means that there is the stench of something very rotten in Denmark. It isn’t easy to put one’s finger on what it is–but that’s precisely part of the problem. If you want to get a feel for how the Republic is really doing these days, don’t look to that meaningless ‘State of the Union’ speech given by the president each year. Look to the streets and see how many, and how often, the people are coursing through them.

Was reading Alec Baldwin’s “goodbye” this morning and saw this comment: As progressive as I’ve been in my politics, there are other things I don’t think of as liberal or progressive, just common sense. This statement concisely summarizes why progressivism, and progressives, are dangerous. They do not view a large number of their viewpoints, up […]

I would just like to take this moment to thank the rich people of America for their generous subsidizing the lion’s share of America’s taxes. This year, for example, I am especially grateful for the child tax credit. Thanks!

An interesting thing has happened, so rare it might even be deemed a singularity on par with the Big Bang: There will be a debate between a young earth creationist* and an avowed evolutionist. The debate, to be held on Feb. 4th, 2013, is between Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and Bill Nye… the Science Guy. I attempted to get tickets; they were sold out within just a few minutes. This is indicative of the kind of interest there is in such an event. It is no doubt good publicity for the Creation Museum, but sitting here as a young earth creationist myself, I wish to lodge my (obviously belated) advice to Mr. Ham: cancel the debate.

I read an article today that pointed out (what seems a bit obvious) that in case of a nuclear blast, you might be better off dispensing with the ‘official’ advice, which is: The official U.S. government advice is to “take shelter in the nearest and most protective building.” The nearest and most protective building might […]

Limbaugh and others are correct in detecting the eugenics thinking behind this comment but do not go far enough in their explanation. The problem is that a moment’s thought, especially amongst those with only a passing knowledge of the phrase ‘eugenics’, would recall that early 20th century eugenics had essentially embraced Darwin’s formula, “Survival of the fittest.” Given that evolution, as expressed in this maxim, was a raw scientific fact, early eugenicists saw the genetically inferior as a burden on society that needed to be eliminated. So how was Gruber being like a eugenicist if he was targeting the genetically fit?

It may seem hard for some of us to learn that Planned Parenthood submitted abortion on demand as a population control measure, and was even willing to consider compelling women to get abortions, but that is precisely what they did. Whether or not this remains their agenda, of course we’ll never know, because, like the Enemy, they lie.

The old HOS were an unwieldy instrument that didn’t actually facilitate me being ready and rested in time for a long drive, and often prevented me from driving when I was actually alert and ready to go. The new HOS won’t change this one bit.
