Creeping Twaddle

Image result for images of mother goddess statuette

This little stone figurine, which would fit in the palm of your hand, is a not uncommon archaeological find throughout southeastern Europe, Turkey, and the Middle East, going way, way back in time.

Archaeology is meant to be a science. When an archaeologist makes a claim, he is supposed to have evidence for it–inscriptions, pictures, whatever.

These figurines have long been thought to represent fertility goddesses. But in this month’s issue of Biblical Archaeology Review (November-December 2018, Vol. 44, No. 6), we have one from Catalhoyuk, a site in central Turkey which is billed as one of the oldest cities in the world, dating back to some 8,000 years ago. It’s more of a town than a city, with houses all jumbled together, no streets, cryptic paintings on some of the walls, and dead people interred within the floors.

We know very little about the people who once lived here. We don’t know what language they spoke, what they called themselves, what sort of gods they worshipped, what other people called them–hardly anything at all, beyond the mere physical remains of the town. It’s really hard to find out much about any vanished culture when they’ve left behind no writing.

But that doesn’t stop some of today’s archaeologists from generating a new “theory” that the figures represent “older women who had achieved a special status within their egalitarian agricultural community–with fatness as a sign of prestige and special respected status due to age.”

Whoa! We do not know any such thing. This is PC-infected archaeologists sweeping along in their search for a lost feminist Golden Age. Which they seem to have their hearts set on discovering, no matter what.

Wishful thinking and political correctness has become part of the scientific method, these days.

For all we know, the people of Catalhoyuk might have lived under a tyrant who told them when to go to bed at night. Maybe what we’re looking at is a lost civilization that really sucked to live in. Why did they bury their dead under the living room floor? We simply don’t know.

Take your “science” with more than just one grain of salt.


‘Runaway Science’ (2013)

Image result for images of silly scientists

First it was homophobia. Then transphobia. But before any of that, the Settled Science zeroed in on that dreaded mental disorder, drapetomania.

Science to the rescue! In 1851, a leading researcher discovered that it was a mental illness, **drapetomania**, that made slaves try to escape from slavery.

You just wait. Sooner or later, any non-Far Left Crazy thought will be labeled a mental disorder. They’ll have Science on their side.


This Just In!

Scientists at Fanabla University have discovered “significant decrease in brain volume” in persons who are politically liberal.

“We are most grievously dismayed to discover this,” said Dr. Haffa Baggon, director of the research team, “but this is now the settled science, so there’s nothing that can be done about it.”

As the brain shrinks, he explains, the interior of the cranium fills up with “this disgusting fatty tissue” completely surrounding the brain.

The average adult liberal male, the research team found, “has a brain no bigger than a freakin’ orange,” said a team member who did not wish to be identified. “The all-time small brain champion,” he added, was a Gender Studies professor whose brain was the size of a walnut.

The researchers, according to a reliable source, are currently preparing to flee to another continent.


My Newswithviews Column, Sept. 6 (‘We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Facts’)

Part of the revolt against God is the rejection of the very idea of truth. Our looniversities teach that there is no truth, just “your truth and my truth”–and then watch what happens if you try to dissent from their truth.

Anyway, this mind-set has caused many of us to be rather cavalier about facts.

What’s there to say for a society in which scientists, entertainers, and police all reject the truth?


‘Let’s Make Robots That Evolve!’ (2016)

It’s staggering to think of the amount of time, money, and brainpower that goes into totally useless twaddle like this.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/06/02/lets-make-robots-that-evolve/

“So, see, we’re gonna design evolving life, so we can say that life evolves without design! That way there’s no God, and we can all have sex with… well, whatever!”

Is there some way we can only fund scientific studies that aren’t crap?


‘Hooray! “Gay Caveman” Discovered’ (2015)

They may not be able to find the “gay gene,” but in 2015 Science exulted because archaeologists had discovered the grave of the first “gay” caveman.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/10/31/hooray-gay-caveman-discovered/

See? They knew it all along! It had to be there! Gay from the git-go!

Some of you are new here and might have missed this, first time around, so here it is again. I knew you wouldn’t want to be without this news.


‘Keep Your Loved Ones Sort of Alive Forever’ (2015)

Better than a seance!

Is there any limit to what Science can do? Of course not! Science can do anything.

Even keep your loved ones alive forever. Sort of.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/10/27/keep-your-loved-ones-sort-of-alive-forever/

Did we really need all this technology, though? Couldn’t you accomplish the same thing with some old photos and a loop of tape that went round and round, reciting the dear departed’s text messages?

Sorry, didn’t mean to give ’em ideas…

Drivel Alert: ‘Sex-bots Will Improve Marriage’

Image result for images of luna moth

This story is much too disgusting to illustrate. Here is a picture of a luna moth instead. God’s stuff is better than ours. Ours sucks.

Shakespeare thought of this first, when he had Lady Macbeth cry out, “Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here…!”

Be careful what you wish for.

Just when you thought humanism couldn’t dehumanize us any further, along come the sex-bots–machines you can “have sex” with. But not to worry: an “expert” (oh, please) at the University of British Columbia says having sex with machines can make our marriages better (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6060627/Sex-robots-IMPROVE-marriages-letting-spouses-focus-companionship-expert-claims.html).

See, if you get your jollies making whoopee with a glorified toaster-oven, that’ll give you and your spouse “more focus on companionship and creating a family.” She does not explain how you and your spouse will do that if you’re both having sex with machines instead of with each other.

Oh, but what’s not to like? This’ll “give couples greater opportunity to define their own type of marriages,” according to whatever addled pumpkin-guts you have in place of a brain. Why, it “could soon become a societal norm”! Oh, frabjous day. More societal norms that college doodlebugs make up as they go along.

Sophisticated sex-bots are bound to be expensive, so maybe for the time being you can make do with your printer or some other handy appliance–whatever floats your boat.

Are there really people out there who don’t understand that “sex” with a machine is only a simulation of sex?

I do hope not.


‘The Stone Age Tribe That Wasn’t’ (2015)

Image result for images of gentle tasaday

Ah, settled science!

Remember “the gentle Tasaday,” whose language had no words for “war” or “conflict”? Yowsah. They lived in the sticks in the Philippines, supposedly cut off from the rest of humanity for at least a thousand years, and therefor “natural” and “unspoiled”–living proof that man, if left uncorrupted by capitalism or whatever, is born to be a hippy.

Not.

After a couple of media orgasms, it came out that the Gentle Tasaday were just another hoax (https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/22/the-stone-age-tribe-that-wasnt/). They were putting us on. It seems being international media stars beats being poor.

And to think they could’ve wound up decorating containers of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream!

Ah, well–the next hoax will be even better. Maybe someone will discover a tribe of naturally transgender persons who’ve been messing about with their identities for a thousand years and still can’t make up their minds…
