Gun Control is About Destroying Males

Soldiers on a Boat looking really manly.
As I read the below linked article it made me think about the gun control issue. Why is there a "gun culture" and why are so many so dead set against gun control? We often say it is the Second Amendment but this article makes me think it might be something much deeper. Something the left has been fighting hard to destroy - masculinity or what they call "toxic masculinity". It talks about the very ...

Don’t Kill People With Down Syndrome

A little girl with down syndrome
I've brought this subject up a few times before, the subject of people with Down Syndrome being aborted out of existence. I don't know if you have ever gotten to know people with Down Syndrome or not. I have been fortunate to. In some places when a child is diagnosed with Down Syndrome in the womb the mother aborts the child. Why she does that will likely differ from woman to woman. Some do not wi...

Guns and the Mentally Ill: What do we do?

Florida Shooter
So, I realized I need to be consistent in my criticisms. I often say that those who call for "common sense gun laws" never give any specifics. I've made my specifics clear on what I think should be done in the short term - remove gun free school zones and allow teachers to carry concealed weapons. I personally think that what we have is a mental health crisis but what are the specifics of fixin...

Science is about truth, not fear or convenience or policy 

Photo of cracked cement
This is an example of science that isn't very scientific. Though they laud the scientist for her one word abstract they admit that it was more of a political stunt than actual science. Once the science is explored it becomes clear that a more standard abstract was called for. "The work itself is more nuanced than a simple yes or no, though. Hough isn’t really disproving a relationship between t...

Regeneration of the entire human epidermis!

Genes
This is just incredible. This poor child had a rare disease that causes the skin to become weak and grow sores that are very painful. Doctors were able to use genetic therapy to basically give him a new skin. It won't be long before there is a cure for most things that ail us. Our teeth won't rot, our eyes won't dim, and our minds will stay sharp until the end of our very long lives. "The you...

It’s Time to Take the Gaia Hypothesis Seriously

Gaia
Can a planet be alive? That's the question the author of the below article is asking. The answer is no. If it were alive then it wouldn't be a planet. It would be an organism rather than a planet which simply hosts organisms. The below linked article talks about a hypothesis, known as Gaia, which basically does posit that the earth is an organism. This hypothesis has been around for a while now an...

Men don’t cry as much because they are men

TV Actor Crying
The author of the linked article went on a quest to find out why he wasn't crying when he was sad. When he was young, he says he cried a lot but as he got older, not so much. He noticed that was true of his other male friends as well. There just wasn't a whole lot of crying going on. Sadness yes, depression yes, anger yes, but not a lot of crying. He began to wonder, "am I broken?" No, you are not...

Jordan Peterson on Postmodernism

Jordan Peterson
I've watched Jordan Peterson for a while now, since before his step into the limelight of gender controversy. He is the author of a great book, "Maps of Meaning" which I will post about some other time. One of the things he's most vehement about is the destructive power of postmodernism. This was brought up by Derek James in the comments on Facebook. I thought this was a good opportunity to post a...

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. ...
