Obviously the best way to fight [trumpet fanfare] Climbit Change is with ideas torn from Hollywood movies.
The long-lost screenplay for an epic disaster movie that Irwin Allen never got around to making has surfaced somewhere in the White House. It features a plan to cancel Global Warming/Climbit Change by “solar radiation modification” (https://www.cnbc.com/2023/06/30/white-house-releases-report-on-solar-geoengineering.html).
Allen, on his death-bed, regretted not making that movie. “It would’ve made The Towering Inferno look like a campfire!” he said.
As yet there are “no formal plans” for this “geoengineering”. Its proponents (the usual idiots) insist the risk of “doing something” about blah-blah-blah is far greater than the risk of doing nothing. How many times have we heard that before?
Every day we’re governed by these maniacs is a terrible risk in and of itself.
That last post gave me the idea for a dystopian novel.
Suppose the global elites could really do it–squish their minds into a robot and live forever. While the rest of us peasants grow old and die. A Bible verse springs instantly to mind: And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them (Revelation 9:6).
I imagine the protagonist screaming at one of his friends, “O my God!” [What god would that be?] “That must be the ten millionth time you’ve told that stinkin’ joke! Aaaaargh!”
Enabled by their great god Science, globalist big shots have their minds inhabiting special, incredibly costly, fantastic artificial bodies. And these are virtually indestructable, so suicide is out of the question. As for going mad from boredom and frustration–well, that happened to him 160 years ago.
All he wants to do now is die–and he can’t. But almost everyone he knows is in the same boat, and life for these earth-bound, Godless immortals is nothing but a form of Hell. All pleasures have long since gone stale.
I won’t have time to write this, but maybe one of our younger brothers or sisters will.
In the meantime, don’t say God didn’t warn us.
As long as we’re not usin’ ’em…
I wonder how far they’ve got with this business, since I posted this five years ago.
The idea was to create a human “interface” with computers so that somebody at a keyboard somewhere could delete someone else’s thoughts… and also insert thoughts that Big Brother wants you to have.
Humanist Poison–and the Antidote
You put the right thoughts in, you pull the wrong thoughts out; you do the hokey-pokey and you shake it all about…
This is supposed to appeal to us, somehow?
As for the antidote: see Psalm 46. Come to think of it, Psalm 2 also applies–big-time.
Lately I’ve been thinking there’s more and more frivolity among the “Science” community: an awful lot of truly trivial thinking. Anybody else see that?
Really, now, look at the picture. If you can’t distinguish that from a human, you don’t need a sex therapist–you need an optician.
Sex robots powered by 5G will be ‘indistinguishable from humans’
Ah, the nooze! And you wonder why some of us want “long ago” back?
This is supposed to be “the beginning of a synthetic sexual revolution.”
If I spent all day at it, I don’t think I could think of anything we need less.
Waddayou wanna do today, Chauncey? I dunno, Edgar; waddayou wanna do? Well, how’s about we rewrite the blueprint of life? Yeah, okay…
A Chinese scientist claims to have created the world’s first “gene-edited” babies, twin girls (https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/ap-exclusive-first-gene-edited-babies-claimed-in-china/2018/11/25/bb9b74de-f124-11e8-99c2-cfca6fcf610c_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.7f879fa5c019).
It’s hard to check, because the kind of research he says he’s done is banned in the United States: “editing” human DNA can pass on “changes” to future generations and wind up causing unforeseen harm. There’s no independent confirmation of this guy’s work, and many details are missing from the report: like who the girls’ parents are, where they’re currently living, and little clues like that. So we are at liberty to disbelieve this claim.
The scientist said his purpose was to change human DNA to make his subjects more resistant to the HIV virus. Or maybe it was just to show all those other scientists who said he was mad.
I Corinthians 1 somehow springs to mind. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. (Verse 19)
Just a little something to think of, when, three generations down the road, the new improved human DNA reacts to hay fever like it was polio and no one can find a cure.
By 2050, according to a “top scientist,” human beings will acquire the ability “to not die” ( https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5408425/Human-beings-achieve-immortality-2050.html).
Yessireebob, immortality is just around the corner! This will be thanks to “Artificial Intelligence mimicking human thought,” “body part renewal,” and “linking bodies to machines.” And thanks to cloning, our masters will be able to “restore the brain as it matures.” Paging Dr. Frankenstein…
Wow. Like, 700 more years of Nancy Pelosi in the House of Representatives. I can’t wait.
But what we’re talking about here is just another freakin’ simulation. “You” will become a collection of computer programs and whatnot. Stuff that imitates you.
Oh, but let’s say it really works, and you become sort of immortal. You’ll last for as long as the high-tech wizardry doesn’t spring a leak.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to imagine what that would be like. What if one of your personal updates goes wrong? What effect would it have on your mind, on your soul–presuming you still have one, once they’re through with you–to live without the certainty of eventual death… and without the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ? With the thought that one slip, one glitch, and you’re gone for good–or maybe just turned into some kind of AI zombie that isn’t you at all?
Turn us all into a race of Terminators–yeah, what could possibly go wrong?
This is idol worship with a vengeance.

Scientists who haven’t been busy identifying fossil pigs as fossil apes expect to be able, not many years from now, to “write information into the brain” without having to use any invasive equipment–“technology that can read information from the human brain” without cutting it open (http://www.wnd.com/2018/04/feds-tech-effort-seeks-to-write-info-to-brain/).
Yes, they expect to develop a “safe, portable, neural interface system” that’ll enable them to pass signals directly into the brain through skin and bones. And of course the reason given for doing this is medical, it’ll “help people with brain injuries.” That’s always the reason given for any of this stuff. And please pay no attention to the fact that this research is being funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. I mean, really, they wouldn’t dream of weaponizing this…
Oh, happy day! “Signals” pumped straight into your brain! “Now I really love Big Brother!” And don’t even ask whose “signals” they’re going to be!
O Lord our God, remember that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections.
(Miracle Max from “The Princess Bride”)
The world’s on fire, Western civilization is being murdered inch by inch–and scientists as the University of Southampton (UK) claim to have proof of life after death ( http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/670781/There-IS-life-after-DEATH-Scientists-reveal-shock-findings-from-groundbreaking-study ).
How did they get that proof?
Well, um, they asked people.
And they found, they say, that “awareness” continues for up to three minutes after someone is pronounced dead, as opposed to the 30 seconds or so that had always been assumed. Some 40% of the patients interviewed, it is said, recalled some form of awareness after someone said, “Yep, he’s dead, all right!”
Well then, he wasn’t really dead, was he? Not if he’s chatting about it afterward.
Ah, science… Do they really think we need them to “prove” or disprove what the Bible has been declaring to us for thousands of years? Is there really all that much difference between three minutes and 30 seconds, stacked up against eternity?
If they truly want to do something useful, they should think of a way to get rid of liberalism.
Hey! Remember this? ( http://blurbrain.com/400k-study-global-warming-feminism-glaciers/ ) How we defenseless taxpayers of America paid over $400,000 to some idiot “professor” to pioneer “feminist glaciology” and “the connection between gender and glaciers”?
So you thought I was kidding yesterday when I wrote “Physics goes P.C.”? Well, so did I–but now I’m not so sure. I mean, here we’ve got a “feminist political ecology and feminist postcolonial approach” to the study of glaciers. What the blazes does that mean?
We are asked–if not ordered–to believe in “science” as the ultimate arbiter of truth. If “science” says it ain’t so, then it ain’t so: sayonara, Book of Genesis. And if “science” says it’s so, then it’s so: come on in, feminist glaciology! Here, you can sit down right here, between Climate Change and Evolution.
Is what we call “science” even science anymore?
If you say yes, lots of luck trying to prove it.
The student body at CDU–true diversity!
Academics have long strained their brains, trying to figure out how to totally politicize the study of physics. Somehow applying “a feminist post-colonial analysis” to the study of glaciers didn’t quite catch on.
But now, at long last, sages at Cardiff Giant University have come up with “a Diversity-centered curriculum for Physics.”
Among the pearls of wisdom brought forth to tempt us to further study are these:
*”You can be an electron one day and a proton the next, depending on how you feel.”
*”Traditional physics is a neo-colonial White Privilege thingy for biggits.”
*”There are no laws of nature, only mental constructs.”
“Black physics matters!”
This curriculum, says the department head, Professor I.M. Schmendrick, “will once and for all establish that there is nothing, nothing, nothing that can’t be made abysmally stupid! We are truly excited about this. I can hardly wait to make our students swear loyalty oaths to the Democrat Party and to progressive thought in general.”
Students who decline to take the oath, according to the university, will be “encouraged” to remain in Diversity Training until they do.
“They always come around to our way of thinking,” said Schmendrick. “Like, dude, it’s our way or the highway! We’ll have diversity here or else.”
