Transphobia Causes Climate Change

See the source image

It’s official now: Transphobia causes Climate Change.

That’s the finding of the Settled Science Institute at Fimbo University. According to project director Drogo Baggypants, “Unless transphobia is energetically suppressed by all the world’s governments, the earth’s surface temperature will rise to 600 degrees Fahrenheit in just three years. And the science is settled, so I don’t have to answer any questions you might have.”

Dr. Baggypants pointed out that no planet with a majority transgender population has ever suffered from Global Warming. “If you want to go on living,” he said, “the science says you’ve got to live trans.”

Anticipating “some minor and ineffectual criticism,” the project director said “Even a microscopic amount of dissent from this position constitutes an anti-science attitude, and cannot be tolerated.”

Mr. Nature: Podokesaurus

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/05/05/b1/0505b1dcccf35c5071a78e3a31ed128e.jpg

Jambo! Mr. Nature here: and our safari today takes us into the world created by artist Rudolph Zallinger in his 1947 mural, The Age of Reptiles.

I am particularly interested in Podokesaurus–because it has a cool name, hardly anyone has ever heard of it, and it’s so much smaller than all the other dinosaurs. In the picture above, you can just make it out: it’s that tiny little thing just below the Plateosaurus (the big purple thing) that’s bending over to much some plants.

Podokesaurus was discovered in 1910, in Massachusetts, by a Mt. Holyoke College geology professor and her sister, who were taking a walk together and happened to spot traces of bones in a boulder that had somehow split open–and what are the odds of that? The original fossil was destroyed in a fire in 1917, but the casts were saved; and in 1958 another Podokesaurus specimen was found. This one, scientists estimated, grew maybe up to nine feet long. The one found at the college was only three feet long.

When I was a little boy I used to gaze in fascination at pictures of this mural: must’ve spent hours doing it. This was another world. I couldn’t tear myself away.

Nowadays Zallinger’s renderings of dinosaurs are considered wildly inaccurate; but in 1947 they were Settled Science.

One thing about Podokesaurus–it was small enough to hide. Keep your eyes peeled, next time you go camping.


Science: Grown-Up Libs Still Have Imaginary Friends

See the source image

Incredibly rigorous research by Settled Science “R” Us has found that liberals–especially politicians and college professors–have imaginary friends all throughout their adult lives.

“The science is settled, so shut up already!” said Dr. X, who wishes to remain anonymous. “A lot of people have imaginary friends while they’re little kids, but big libs have ’em all their lives.”

Why do grown-up liberals have imaginary friends?

“First, what other kind can they get?” said Dr. X. “But second, and more importantly, who else but an imaginary person is going to provide the liberal with the constant reassurance he needs that he’s really, really smart, infinitely more virtuous than all those people he hates, and much, much nicer than everybody else? No real person is ever going to do that!

“You can’t help feeling kind of sorry for them. They think they’re so terribly smart, but they’re mostly rather stupid. They think they’re good and kind–well, that’s a lie! They think they do everything from the purist motives. That’s a laugh. Really, if they didn’t do so much freakin’ damage to the country, you could almost take up a collection for them. They haven’t got the ghost of a suspicion of how obnoxious they are. And they are appalled and mystified that ordinary people don’t bow down to them and acknowledge their greatness. Ah, me! Being the smartest persons in the world–it’s a thankless job!”

Liberals who do not yet have an imaginary friend, he added, can always get one just by watching CNN or MSNBC. “You’d be surprised how many of them have adopted one of the noozies they see on TV every night,” said Dr. X. “They love getting interviewed on an imaginary Sunday talk show by one of their imaginary friends–and they get a real charge out of it when Rachel Maddow or somebody praises them on international TV. That none of it’s real is something they lose track of rather quickly.”

Is this study saying, then, that the average adult liberal is… crazy?

“As a bedbug,” said Dr. X.

 


Really, if the Jackalope Isn’t Real…

As long as we’re talking alternate reality, I simply must put in a word for the jackalope.

Skeptics say the jackalope’s not real–but pictures don’t lie! Jackalopes proliferate–am I allowed to use that word? it looks a lot like “pro-life”–during periods of Global Warming and Hate Speech, thriving on Income Inequality, Nationalism, and Transphobia. This is settled science, so everybody just shut up about it.

I think I might have seen one at our supermarket this morning, just as it ducked out of sight near the Easter candy display. Then again, it might have just been a store employee tidying the shelves.


‘Today’s Settled Science’ (2016)

See the source image

But it was scientific!

Too many people have been brought up to regard “science” as infallible. For some reason, fully accepting the teachings of the Bible, and believing whole-heartedly in its message, raises eyebrows; but unquestioning faith in “science” doesn’t.

Except that today’s “settled science” is tomorrow’s quaint superstition.

Phlogiston, miasma theory, and eugenics–once upon a time, you were a heretic or even a dangerous crackpot if you questioned any of these.

Which aspects of our “science” will they be laughing at in 2070?

All of it, probably.


So Libs Like Gross Things…

“Dirty sink? What dirty sink?”

The news cycle seems to have missed this when it came out in 2014, but it’s being reported now.

According to an international team of scientists at Virginia Tech University, your reaction to disgusting images is almost certain to reveal your political ideology (https://www.biospace.com/article/around-the-web/liberal-or-conservative-brain-responses-to-disgusting-images-help-reveal-political-leanings-virginia-tech-study-/). In fact, one reaction to one disgusting image is 95% predictive of a person’s politics. How about that!

Simply stated, Republicans and conservatives react adversely to images of maggots, mutilated carcasses, or a sinkful of rotting garbage, but the same images don’t much bother Democrats and liberals.

Well, really–if the imagined (thankfully!) image of Hillary Clinton as president isn’t going to turn you off, what is? If only Chuck Schumer were as easy to get rid of as a sinkful of garbage.

It’s fun to watch the scientists trying to explain this in Darwinian terms, with fairy tales about long-ago cavemen learning not to eat stuff that the maggots had already started in on.

Look–if you like transgenderism, two guys getting “married,” San Francisco sidewalks heaped with human feces, Barak Obama as a sage, and the whole idea of global government, you already like disgusting things. A bunch of roadkill rotting away in the sun is hardly going to put you off.

I hope we didn’t have to pay a lot to find out this scientific thing that everybody already knew.

But now, at least, it’s Settled Science! And you libs have got to embrace it, or else be revealed as hate criminals and anti-science biggits.


Still Sick (*sigh*)

All right, here’s the plan: one more blog post after this one, and I’m going back to bed. I got a little sleep last night, which is better than none. My head still hurts.

I probably won’t bring my toy dinosaurs into bed with me, but I’ve got the next best thing: Michael Crichton’s The Lost World (his sequel to Jurassic Park)–in which the author seems to have discovered that Settled Science isn’t really all that settled. I love it when the bad guys try to avoid getting eaten by the Tyrannosaurus by standing as still as statues. “They’re just standing there! Are they crazy?” And Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum in the movies) answers, “No, not crazy. They are misinformed.” Turned out what they “knew” about dinosaurs wasn’t true, after all. But no going back to the drawing board for them.

Hopefully I will read myself to sleep with this and move another two or three hours closer to normalcy. That’s what I’m praying for, at any rate: and thank all of you for your prayers for me.


It’s Snowing… on South Africa’s Giraffes

When was the last time you saw a snowscape–with giraffes?

Check out the photos in this article (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7229712/snow-south-africa-blizzards-desert-giraffes/). Giraffes, elephants, and sable antelopes, all plodding around in heavy snow–is that a weird visual experience, or what?

Good thing they’ve stopped calling it Global Warming and shifted over to Climate Change. ‘Cause this don’t look like warmin’! Is it too late to bring back the New Ice Age scare from the 1970s?

Snow is not unknown in South Africa, but this is ridiculous.

The science is settled, eh? Like, it must be the Warming that’s causing it to snow on the giraffes and elephants.

We’re waiting to hear the globalists blame the snow on Donald Trump.


Yes, Global Warming is Over

While the globalists and the “We worship Science!” crowd tries desperately to drive home their Global Warming/Climate Change scam, the Danish Meteorological Institute is reporting that instead of melting, a la Al Gore, the Arctic Ice cap is growing and, instead of rising, the temperatures are “plummeting” (http://www.thegwpf.com/another-arctic-ice-panic-over-as-global-temperatures-plummet/).

Obviously the DMI is staffed by Climate Change Deniers and other enemies of the people, and needs to be investigated by Loretta Lynch.

But, say the scientists at the institute, there has been no “global warming” now for 19 years, and what warming there was in the Arctic was caused by an unusually strong El Nino weather pattern which, now that the El Nino is over, has been followed by steadily decreasing temperatures.

Damn!

Climbit Change is the leftids’ great white hope for putting themselves in power over the whole world forever. Their success so far has been accomplished by lying, suppressing data, suborning a nooze media only too glad to be suborned, ignorant movie stars flapping their jaws about “science,” and the usual political scare tactics and chicanery. It is the biggest criminal enterprise in all of world history.


Settled Science Alert! Woman Gave Birth to Rabbits

How smart are smart people?

In 1726, an English serving-maid named Mary Toft claimed to have given birth to… rabbits. (http://www.skepdic.com/toft.html ) She had the local doctor deliver the rabbits. He was so convinced by what he saw, he summoned King George’s own personal physician, who was also convinced. Just to put the capper on it, the royal astronomer–don’t ask!–was also called in; and he, too, was convinced that Mary had given birth to 17 (count ’em!) bunny rabbits.

Too  bad nobody called in a farmer or a game warden. But they’re not scientists.

According to the settled science of those days, “maternal impressions”–that is, what a pregnant woman sees or hears, thinks or dreams about, during pregnancy would mightily influence the characteristics of her baby. Hear a loud noise, and the baby’s born deaf. Eat too much fatty food, and the baby grows up to be obese. Mary told the doctors she was obsessed with rabbits, thought about ’em and dreamed about ’em all the time. Good enough!

When it was finally discovered that Mary had successfully pulled a hoax, there was a spot of trouble over it and she went to jail for four months.  It is not recorded that any doctors or astronomers were fired for believing her. They were men of science, after all. And science is always right about everything, until next week’s science comes along and proves it wrong.

Sometimes smart people ain’t as smart as they’re cracked up to be.

But anyone who reads the Bible knows that. And anyone who sort of pays attention to reality.
