‘Where Science Ends and Fantasy Begins’ (2018)

Once upon a time there was an “Old Europe” in which there was no war, no inequality, no badness of any kind… because it was ruled by wimmin, dontcha know. That’s what feminist scientists tell us. I’m thinking scientists and feminists deserve each other.

Ironic, isn’t it? The “Ice Man” is the only well-preserved body we have from Old Europe–and he’s a murder victim! What are the odds of that?

There is no evidence for a feminist Golden Age of “Old Europe,” but lack of evidence never gets in the way of Science anymore. We don’t need no stinkin’ evidence.

The Iceman–a murder victim

Once upon a time–feminist wimmin scientists say this, so it must be true–Europe was inhabited by peaceful, gentle, farming communities, supervised by women, goddess-worshiping, who knew neither warfare nor violence. But then along came Mr. Man with his violent, warlike, patriarchal Indo-European nastiness and screwed the whole thing up. Eventually the gentle, peaceful goddess-worshipers were reduced to little pockets of non-Indo-European groups like Basques, Etruscans, and several others. Only a few have survived to this day.

That lost utopia is now called “Old Europe” and serves as a kind of feminist Golden Age.

What bunk.

Hey, remember the Ice Man? The guy who died some 5,300 years ago and wound up frozen in a glacier in the Alps, to be dug up and studied in modern times. The Ice Man is the genuine well-preserved dead body of a person who actually lived in Old Europe. In fact, his is the only well-preserved body left to us from that age.

And guess what: it’s the body of a murder victim. Yup–“Otzi” died from a hard blow to the head and an arrow that pierced one of his arteries (https://www.livescience.com/37311-otzi-iceman-death-clues.html). So, 100% of the bodies we have recovered from Old Europe are those of murder victims. Does that mean theirs was an incredibly violent society, wherein the No. 1 cause of death was murder?

Maybe poor Otzi was iced by transphobes who snuck in from Indo-European country. Or by time-traveling Republicans.

Meanwhile, the whole potentially fascinating study of “Old Europe” has been deeply tainted by feminist fantasy, maybe beyond repair. Guess I’ll just have to study something… well, real.
