‘Zillionaire to Build Robo-Nanny’ (2016)

See the source image

If people had the kind of ideas before they were rich like they dreamed up after they were rich, they never would have gotten rich.

Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg wants to build a robot to take care of his baby daughter. Honk if you think that’s a good idea.

Well, okay, sure–it’s a great idea for a 1950s science fiction/horror movie. But is it really, truly, hard to believe that sinful, foolish, uninformed, frightened, deluded human beings can’t create “intelligence” that’s wiser than themselves?


Were ‘Sex-Bots’ Really Such a Great Idea?

If this turns you on, you need turning off.

News from the total depravity front!

Addressing the annual meeting of the American Assn. for the Advancement of Science, a Duke University scientist warned that “sex-bots”–robots created to service loons with weird sexual desires–could pose “psychological threats to humans” (https://nypost.com/2020/02/15/sex-robots-pose-psychological-threats-for-humans-researchers-warn/).

“Some robots,” she said, “are programmed to protest, to create a rape scenario.” And some, she added, “are designed to look like children.”

The threat, as anyone who’s not a nut can see, is that some of these kooks will get tired of sexually abusing robots, leave the bots behind, and seek out human victims–a bigger thrill, don’t you know.

Isn’t it about time someone asked, “What the devil do we think we’re doing?” And, like, stop doing it? Come on! Were sex-bots ever something we should have invented? Is this really what our minds are for?

Thanks to people who really should know better, but don’t, because they have no moral grounding, our society is growing more and more perverted.

Go ahead, tell me I’m wrong.


Food for Us Peasants

[Warning! The information contained in this article may upset your stomach and lead to real discomfort.]

Listen up, you deplorables!

Your betters are gonna Save The Planet whether you like it or not, so you’d better learn to like it. And one of the things they mean to do is to replace real butter, which comes from cows, with this goo that comes from… well, maggots (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/feb/28/larva-fat-sustainable-alternative-butter-cakes).

How dare you be grossed out? This is scientific! C’mon, now–what could be more appetizing than “black soldier fly larvae”? And you thought toothpaste sandwich cookies were horrible! Schiff, man–it’s “more sustainable”! If that doesn’t perk up your appetite, what will?

Now, don’t go expecting John Kerry or Barack Obama or Michael Bloomberg or Bernie Sanders to sit down to a nice stack of pancakes with maggot butter (and don’t even try to guess what they want us to use in lieu of maple syrup). This soldier fly goop is for us, not them. It won’t be on the menu at Davos, so don’t get your private jets in a twist, trying to get there before the fly butter is all gone.

We need to save the planet from the idiots who anoint themselves to Save The Planet.


Mr. Nature: Like a Hippo, Sort Of

A pair of Coryphodons, painted by Charles R. Knight

Jambo! Mr. Nature here, with another safari into the past.

Coryphodon is another prehistoric animal that isn’t around anymore, although many fossils of it have been found throughout North America and elsewhere. It was similar to a hippopotamus, although somewhat smaller. Scientists calculate it weighed a bit more than half a ton.

To me, the interesting thing about this creature is that it used to live on Ellesmere Island–almost at the North Pole. Here’s what Ellesmere Island looks like today–in the summer. In the winter it’s all just snow and ice.

But scientists tell us that Coryphodon’s environment on Ellesmere Island was one of “warm swamp forests of huge trees.” Eh? Well, they’ve dug up the plant fossils that certainly give that impression.

It would be hard to imagine a more radical climate change than this. What could have caused it? It wasn’t SUVs and toilet paper, air conditioning, or people not living like 10th-century Scottish peasants.

The earth is the Lord’s, and He does with it what He will. Let’s not give ourselves airs and claim we do these things.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Thinking we can do the things the Lord does is the beginning of folly.


‘Feds Want to Know if You’re Depressed’ (2016)

Right up to the end of the Obama regime, they were plotting mischief–doubtless in the belief that President Hillary Clinton would give them the green light to continue wrecking the country.

One of their bolder schemes was to have the entire population tested for depression.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/02/29/feds-want-to-know-if-youre-depressed/

God spared us a Hillary Clinton presidency, so nothing ever came of this. But I wonder–

Would they have discovered all 300 million of us were depressed?

And would they take the hint, and go away?


By Request, ‘Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus’

This Welsh melody, “Hyfrydol,” is one of my very favorites, with several different sets of lyrics to go with it. Requested by Joshua, Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus; performed by Maranatha!


More Unsettled Science: Neanderthal Art

Neanderthal cave paintings

In 2018, after studying the matter for three years, European scientists said they’d discovered, at three different sites in Spain, art-work created by… Neanderthals (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-02357-8).

It doesn’t look like much–but ask any museum curator what kind of shape any painting would be in, after being neglected for 65,000 years.

Young Earth creationists, please stay with me. The point here is not how old the paintings are, but that they exist at all. For the sake of argument, we provisionally accept the dating of the art, which was accomplished by dating calcium carbonate deposits that formed on top of the images. And the age they came up with was some 65,000 years before the present.

According to the same scientific establishment, modern humans–Homo sapiens, like us– didn’t arrive in Europe until circa 40,000 years ago. The only people there, back then, were Neanderthals. The artists must have been Neanderthals. They painted abstract symbols whose meaning is long since lost, along with stenciled hand prints and a few damaged, but still recognizable, pictures of animals. In the photo above, you can just make out a horse’s head off to the right.

It shouldn’t be too surprising that Neanderthals were able to create art. Their skeletons were sturdier than ours, their heads shaped differently from ours–and their brains were slightly larger than ours. Why shouldn’t they have been capable of creative thought?

Well, because the Settled Science of the past hundred years said they couldn’t. In plain English, the term “Settled Science” translates as “Shut up!”

In real science, the jury’s always out. Whenever it tries to come in with certainties, it turns out to be wrong.

Well, something’s wrong here. Either Neanderthals were not some kind of para-human evolutionary dead end, or Homo sapiens was in Europe way earlier than the established timeline allows.

But it’s an exciting discovery, isn’t it? Maybe the perceived differences between us and Neanderthals are only superficial. Maybe the reason that there aren’t any more of them is only because they were absorbed into the general human population–in which sense they are still here, as part of our own ancestry.

God didn’t create two Adams, but only one–from whom we are all descended.

Neanderthals included.


‘Piffle Alert! The “Lunar Temple”‘ (2017)

Sunlit lunar temple

The thought that such deluded individuals have the power to levy taxes on normal people, and make them pay, is enough to give you nightmares.

I wonder how far they’ve gotten with their “Lunar Temple” project, and how much money they’ve spent on it already.

https://leeduigon.com/2017/01/27/piffle-alert-the-lunar-temple/

Yessireebob, we’re gonna have a colony on the moon–why? because you saw it in a science fiction movie?–and there we’re gonna build a Temple only there ain’t gonna be no God in this Temple blah-blah-blah-blah!

The Europeans are such a reliable guide. Whatever they’re doing, turn around and do the opposite–and you’re bound to be right.


‘Why College Students Are So Childish’ (2015)

See the source image

Believe it or not, he’s 36 years old!

The reason for this, I would’ve said offhand, is that that’s the way our evil godless rulers want ’em. But there is a scientific explanation!

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/16/why-college-students-are-so-childish/

I wonder if the plan is to get literally everyone into college and keep them there for as long as they live, while robots do all the work. Imagine–“higher education” that goes on and on until you die.

What use these lifelong students will be to anyone, well, that’s a puzzler.


‘Can Fools Create Wise Computers?’ (2014)

See the source image

In a word, No–fools cannot create wise computers. In fact, “wisdom” is not something that can be imparted to any computer, by anyone.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/10/18/can-fools-create-wise-computers/

Even so, we have “scientists” warning us that someday the computers are going to be way smarter than us and they’re gonna take over and OMG we’re all gonna die, die, die–!

Well, they’d better do it fast, because we’ve only got 11 years now before Climbit Change does us in.
