Pulling in Different Directions… or, Diversity Isn’t What it’s Cracked Up to Be… November 4, 2017

As an atheist I do not believe in any deities. I accept the results of scientific investigation. I, therefore, accept the correctness of the Theory of Evolution. For me evolution is a fact. I assert that evolution is a fact for everyone, whether they accept it or not.

Not all that evolution has imparted to humans has been positive. Reciprocity and social groupings have promoted survival, but has also promoted fierce competition between groups. This competition between groups now threatens the survival of the entire human species. Unless humans are able to overcome the restraints of evolution it is inevitable that the species will extinguish itself.

The limitation of groups is that it makes the members beholding only to other members. Caring and empathy for strangers who are parts of other groups either does not exist or is weak. Evolution has rendered altruism a fictional word. Either humans must evolve into one group caring about the whole or face extinction. Is this possible?

There are thousands of competing groups. Even among those groups there are other groupings. Consensus seems impossible considering the multitudes of conflicting viewpoints. Even if the major groups were brought into alignment there would exist a constant struggle among the smaller groups which could lead to total failure.

Evolution has made it possible for humans to survive. Now it seems bound to destroy them. Evolution promoted the very diversity which will ultimately destroy humanity.

The Lowest Forms of Human Life… October 29, 2017

Sometimes it seems that humans are vying for the Dastardly of the Year Award. The way they work feverishly to be the most fiendish compares to many other competitive endeavors.

There are many levels of “how low can you get”. There are the politicians who once voted into office enact the desires of their highest donor, or outright take bribes, and work against the very voters that gave them office. They hide behind assertions of ethics but the densest of humans can see through that thin cloak.

There are the gangsters, who, even though they exhibit high intelligence, choose instead to lie, cheat, and steal. They make many things cost much more as they skim heavily from the bottom line of many.

There are those of the medical industry who feed directly off the miseries of the sick and debilitated. With costs way out of proportion to their services they add to the pressures of inflation.

There are the street thugs, or punks, that will blow your head off if the mug-money you must carry is insufficient. Depending on how they feel, they might blow your head off anyway, as they have little regard for life.

Many make up the ranks of the hordes that commit immoral behavior. Murder, theft, and general mayhem runs rampant because of them.

The lowest of the low, those that feed upon the children, the families. The scum about which this post came to be… the drug pusher. The fiend who gets you hooked on stuff you just have to have that brings you back even if you have to crawl. The stuff that will cause you to kill your own grandmother just to get your next fix. This human garbage that society seems to tolerate by giving short sentences which bring them back again and again to the streets. This is the lowest of life forms, they only look human. Even comparing them to rats simply does an injustice to rats. Believe it or not there is even a form of life nearly as low… those that say drugs should be legal.

Inferior Cookies… October 28, 2017

Grandma is not in the kitchen. She forsook that post to work in the office or other career oriented locale. In fact, women everywhere have abandoned the traditional role of motherhood and the subsequent role of grandmother in favor of careers.

Not only that, but women are ridiculed now for wanting to be mothers and housewives. All are told to become “empowered” and work toward careers high and mighty, so that they can boss men around here and there in difference avocations.

Men, meanwhile, are encouraged to forsake a college degree so that they can learn trades, to work for women who have the degrees.

Cookies are now made on factory lines, by men commanded by women. The cookies are born stale with scrimpy ingredients to maximize the bottom line. No child need waste his/her time dunking these in milk, they are so hard and dry they shed water like stone.

Cakes are made in great big stores by people who do not care… it’s just a job, you know. The frosting is so artificial it would withstand a thousand years of prolonged exposure to the desert sun… even a rat passes on this stuff.

Grandma? Grandma is no more.

Religion is for the Living… No… Really! …

I simply must post about a recent incident, one which typifies my difficulty in dealing with humans. I will tie this post in with how silly Christianity, or any religion, appears in relation to it.

Upon taking a trip to a nearby town, Bucyrus, on a street where Wendy’s is located, I pulled up to a stop light. There was a sign that I did not see that said I should not block the exit to the Wendy’s. This fellow, upon exiting became agitated and felt the need to lambast me for blocking the exit. At first I believed heangry man must be talking to someone else, but then the realization was that he was pointing at me.

First of all, this man, no more important than you or me took it upon himself to tell me in no uncertain words where I had erred. He proceeded to give me the finger, which I promptly returned. Then he stopped his car and through his back window I could see him vigorously gesturing that I should pull over and engage him physically. Having already being delayed by his idiocy and the light turning green, I proceeded away. There was some concern that the agitated man would follow, but we never saw him again.

He had no right to tell me what law or sign I had disobeyed. His temper was such that being an older fellow he might have blown a vessel in his head and died. We can only hope that he did later.

What if he were a Christian? Doubtful, but what if he was? There was something Jesus said about someone holding something against you should you die before being forgiven. Well, if this man were a Christian he most certainly would be headed for the fictional Hell of his faith, as I will never forgive the man. Then one must consider… what if he were a Catholic? All he need to helldo is confess, I would always have a grudge against him, but he would spend eternity in paradise nonetheless. What if he didn’t confess? Well then there is Purgatory. During that period his relatives and friends could beseech their fictional deity and lo, he would spend eternity in paradiseheaven without forgiveness or confession.

I assert that religion is more for the sake of the living rather than the dead, especially Catholicism. No one can be sure he went anywhere, and heaven not need exist at all, as long as everyone still alive believes he went to paradise. Everybody feels good. More money goes to the church. As an atheist I know he’s just plain old dead, but there the believers are, smug and righteous, knowing, just knowing, he is in heaven and they will see him again. No wonder those of organized crime are usually of the Catholic faith. They can do whatever crime, commit whatever atrocity, confess… and spend eternity in paradise… or so they believe.

As long as you believe, are forgiven for your sins, you go to heaven. Hitler claimed to be a Christian, you know. Now that would be a surprise for the believer to arrive in heaven and find that monster is there to greet them. Yes, it’s been said before, but what is true, is that by their own beliefs… they cannot denyHitler it. Assuredly there will be those who will put up the “No true Scotsman” argument and claim he wasn’t a real Christian… but they would then have to prove they are. No one can do that, they can only claim to be.

Surreptitious Invaders… October 15, 2017

Quietly, indiscreetly, they move into neighborhoods, cities, and congregate in areas. They propagate… that is why they have come. The numbers increase yearly. Soon they are the majority in an area. They think a majority matters… in the same way many Americans think a majority matters… they intend to use that majority to make everyone comply with their demands.

The above is the manner in which Islam invades. They come innocently enough, but their religion is paramount to them. They obey their Imams. They fear their Imams. The people do not come bearing weapons. They come to propagate. They come to outnumber you. Your laws are irrelevant to them. Only their religion is paramount to them. They think you should obey their laws too. They think they are doing you a favor by making you convert and obey. It is an insidious religion, even more so than Christianity.

When the time is right they begin the demands. They want Islamic law to prevail in their areas, and for everyone in their areas to be made to submit to it. They vote on it.

It is happening now in many U.S. cities. It has already happened in many western countries in Europe. Nothing can stop it because there are those politically correct nitwits who will not act and deter others from acting against this oh so patient and quiet invasion.

Prominent Boy’s Club to be Feminized… October 12, 2017

I fail to see why every organization of males must be feminized. Now the Boy Scouts of America under the pressure of the politically correct society has decided to feminize. Previously, all men organizations have faced similar demise nationwide. They may change the name to “Scouts of America”.

What does this mean? There will be changes in the male programs to please incoming feminists. Will there be the same denigration of and marginalizing of males? That awaits to be seen, but if other organizations are any model… it is inevitable.

There will be sporadic charges of sexual harassment and sexual assault as feminists act to remove men from the upper echelons of the organization. Entrapment may become common place.

If this is simply an economic move, then that is one more strike against the capitalistic system of this nation.

In the past my lack of support for the Boy Scouts has been solely based on their religious slant. Now, they may become a true enemy of boys and men everywhere. Now they may become a true enemy I must oppose.

Why You Should Never Marry a Feminist… October 8, 2017

or… Why Marriages to Feminists are Short…

Ever hear the word “empowerment”? It is used often today in schools, the girl scouts, and elsewhere to encourage girls. What many do not know is that it is a feminist concept… what it means is to empower girls so that they do not need men in their lives.

Without need all that is left is want… and want, as we all know is superficial and fickle. What you want today you may not want tomorrow… you may want something else. A marriage based on want, without need, to carry it over waning want periods, would be a marriage measured in months. Why get married at all, if you have no need.

It seems that this concept of empowerment is just another attack by the feminist quarter to destroy traditional marriage. This, and the fact that the laws have been twisted to serve single women in the raising of children… men are maximally minimized.

In conclusion, it would be better to let the empowered woman remain empowered without you. She has no need of you, and if she shows any interest, know that it is fleeting interest. All feminists deserve to die lonely and unloved.

Ignorance is Bringing About the Destruction of Humanity… October 1, 2017

Religion promotes the spread of ignorance. It provides an avenue for the spread of concepts that go against the acquisition and denigrate the value of knowledge. Specifically it rails against knowledge accumulated and extracted by human intellect and favors that written in religious texts.

It is therefore my charge that should humanity become extinct, the fault lies with religion and a belief in god and an afterlife. The environment of earth itself is being degraded because belief and religion override science in political circles.

Religion and belief are destroying humanity and the ability of the earth to support life.

end of the world

The Unknown Catalyst(s) October 1, 2017

Much work is progressing around the world pertaining to abiogenesis. It is my hunch that we might be on the cusp of a major discovery. The beginning and the end is known, it is the middle that needs filling in.

What elements had to come together and provide the impetus for initial formation? The thought of inorganic becoming organic by way of some intermediate is fascinating.

Organic compounds have been found inside meteors striking the earth. Is this where the catalyst arose as well? Even so, on some distant world, or in some place something had to happen to start the journey.

There is no place for god in these explanations. The mention of a god stops all further inquiry. Science has no need of deities.

Was the world first an RNA world? Many scientists now discredit this thought. Then what caused the first strand of DNA to arise?

I am no scientist, I readily admit… though I do still study biology… abiogenesis… and more. All so interesting… though more questions arise every time an answer is found.

Was the sun the catalyst? You can be sure it was a player. Deep sea smoker vents, spewing a concoction of minerals and heat? Could be… many think life began in the sea. Our blood seems to indicate a salt water based origin.

We can dig all we want for fossils in order to explain our past, but still need to find life’s origin.

Did life begin here? Was the seed planted by comets, meteorites, dust? Some answers may never be found conclusively. Yet, there is no reason to resort to explanations based on religion. Religion is what our ancestors used to explain away phenomena they could not understand. Reasoning human beings need to explain phenomena, not explain them away.

The Daily Struggle to Understand… September 26, 2017

I do not fail to understand why Trump does what he does. He is, after all, beholding to a great number of very rich supporters. He has a major incentive to provide massive tax cuts for not only himself but his very wealthy constituents. One could say this would be a sound reason for adding the uber-rich to the those who believe in Armageddon and the rapture as people who do not belong in public office.

I struggle with understanding the poor and average working class person that supports Trump and his policies. Those who would suffer greatly under “Trumpcare” or if Social Security and Medicare were destroyed. These working class people whose sons and possibly daughters would suffer under the burden of the continuing war and other conflicts threatened by this administration. It makes no sense to me. Is it simply faithfulness to a party that has long abandoned them? Is it the same phenomena as those who are religious, and remain so even in the face of reason?

I can truly say that the reactions on line from these supporters is very nearly the same as the religious whenever any resistance is encountered. Vicious, crude, and rude remarks gauged to make you cede to their point are plentiful and quick. It is no wonder the typical Trump supporter is compared to ignorant rednecks with pick-up trucks. They possess a bull-headed characteristic that could only be compared to someone standing resolutely in water that is coming to a boil, refusing to vacate less someone think they are yielding. 

I can no longer guarantee victory for the other party no matter what Trump does. If that were possible even warmonger and liar Hillary would have won unanimously. Perhaps people just could not see such a monster as Trump coming down the road. Nevertheless, that does not explain their resolute support now.
