Racism is a Quest for the Unearned

Proud of what?
There is often a confusion when discussing the matter of racism between racism and culturism. Discussions on culture can be extremely interesting and rewarding. Much can be learned from the ways of other cultures. One cannot objectively define which culture is better but some good arguments can be made if we agree to certain criteria. For example, how healthy are the individuals in the culture and...

Confirmed: Global Warming is Fake News

Freezing Hot
I bet you would be shocked to learn that 97% of climate scientists never agreed on man-made global warming. I bet you would be shocked to learn that in the decades before Al Gore they really were predicting the coming ice age. Even when I make it 100% clear what I mean people still seem to ask, "just what are you saying?" I'm saying, it's all fake and you should just live your life. https://you...

DSM-5 Gender Dysphoria & Trans-Racial Bias

Trans racial and Trans gender
If you are a man and you think you are a woman you have a mental disorder and there are treatments to help. https://youtu.be/Qz4ZyBGwR5g Let’s talk about gender for a moment. Transgender to be exact. I think by now everyone knows just what that is. Oh, well, maybe not everyone. It’s when someone doesn’t feel like the gender they were born with and so they choose to identify as the gender they ...

Moral Outrage and Leftism as a Symptom of Mental Illness

Sunshine of the Leftist Mind
Feelings of Guilt Make you Feel Guilty There's been a study conducted that posits the theory that, "Feelings of guilt are a direct threat to one's sense that they are a moral person and, accordingly, research on guilt finds that this emotion elicits strategies aimed at alleviating guilt that do not always involve undoing one's actions." This isn't really anything new. In my opinion it's the basis ...

If the Earth is Warming it IS Your Fault

YOU are a carbon based life form. When you die your carbon goes back into the environment making you part of the global warming problem. Deal with it, you are part of the problem. You are carbon so if carbon causes warming then you have to live forever, holding on to all your carbon so  you don't add to the problem and - don't forget not to breath. In fact, all life on earth is carbon based. Al...

Polar Ice: So Thick & Icy!

How thick was it? 2 meters thick!
I'm a skeptic. So much so that I'm a skeptic of skeptics who are being skeptical. . I appreciate the scientific method which allows us to really look at things objectively. Part of that means being skeptical about the evidence. Especially that evidence that fits too neatly or seems to good to be true. Because of that I also look at the evidence presented by skeptics with the same level of skeptici...

Did the Documentary Kill the Whale Show?

Orca
No more elephants in the circus, no more whales at SeaWorld San Diego. I'm a conservationist, not an environmentalist. They are very much two different things. As a conservationist I care very much about animals and feel that human beings have a obligation to utilize them in what can be considered a reasonable and proper manner. But I very much feel humans have dominion over the animals. ...

Futurism is Meant to be Optimistic 

There are two things I have noticed generally about how people in the past imagined the future. First, it's generally optimistic in terms of the technological side of things. Second, their visions usually exceed the reality. Take the article below from the USSR. These wonderful images are in keeping with the idea of Walt Disney's Tomorrowland. A place that was, and largely still is, abo...

Researchers Say to Prepare for Global Cooling Because of Global Warming

I quite enjoyed the movie, The Day After Tomorrow in which global warming causes the North Atlantic Ocean currents to stop circulating. In grand Hollywood fashion this causes a stunning array of disasters which ends in a nearly instant ice age. The article that inspired this writing uses the headline that this movie could become reality! For me this seems to highlight two things. The e...

Study Shows that Females Like Strong Males for Mates

Okay, so the study talked about in the article linked at the bottom was done on mice. Not exactly a human corollary there, but enough to bring a thought or two to mind about men and women. The dirty little secret is that women like strong men. For my entire life I've lived in a PC world of feminism. I've watched how attitudes between men and women have changed over the years and I'm starting to ...

Saving endangered animals is God’s will?

No, the title "Saving endangered animals is God's will?" isn't a quote from Noah. Prince Harry reportedly has said that saving endangered animals is God's test for humanity. The Religious I think even the religious among us can look at a statement like that and see there are many flaws in it. I've heard it frequently estimated that 99.9% of all species that ever lived are now extinct. And Go...

Don’t Pretend Neanderthals Didn’t Eat Each Other

Neanderthal Man Etching
I like to point out when news stories or the people quoted in them make claims that actually aren't true. It's a good exercise in being able to spot what is now being called "fake news" but what for the last 30 years at least has just been "news". Fake news comes in several flavors: intentional, biased, and ignorant. This one is ignorant on the part of the author and biased on the part of th...

Why care what the heck is a species anyway? 

The Alt Fox
I understand that you may not give much thought to what constitutes a species or how something is considered a different species from something else. There has been a long standing definition but recently some people are trying to change that. As you can well imagine their change isn't to further define and narrow the parameters to be more exact but, as always seems to be the case with the changin...

8-year-old transgender boy barred from Cub Scouts

I bring up the transgender issue a lot. It's not because I am trans-phobic, or a trans-hater. My philosophy of individual freedom means that I recognize another person's rights to direct their own life. The reason I bring it up so often because it seems the most forceful element is the one that isn't satisfied with being able to direct their own life but wants to direct yours as well. Actually, it...

Love at First Byte. Will they Marry?

Love at first Byte
The story linked to at the bottom is about a woman who built a robot and she wants to get married to that robot. There are several facets related to this story. Setting aside the fact that the robot looks a bit like the woman, we must first (of course) deal with the very obvious acceptance of the "told you so" from all those people who said, "If we allow gay marriage we will have to allow it when ...
