Remote-Controlled… People?

Sounds like every liberal’s dream, doesn’t it? Remotely “hack” someone’s brain to make him do what you want him to do.

Well, a team of “scientists,” whatever they are anymore, has managed to do just that: remotely control a brain to make the subject run, freeze in place, or lose control of his limbs (http://bgr.com/2017/08/18/brain-hack-science-limb-control/). But don’t worry–they only did it to a mouse. No one would dream of doing it to another human being.

Every utopian humanist dream fulfilled! Total obedience! No more trouble with the masses: they’ll just have to do as they’re told. Shoot, where’s Boris Karloff when you need him? And Peter Lorre? Can’t you just hear Lorre whispering, “Now, Mr. Patient, pick up the knife–yes, that’s right–and I will press this little button, and you will stab Mr. Greedy in the back, right between the shoulder-blades. I owe him a lot of money, you see…”

It’s all Jurassic Park. And just wait till the dinosaurs get loose.


We Have to Destroy the Human Race in Order to Save It?

National Public Radio, funded by your defenseless tax dollars, is all hepped up over a “philosopher” from Johns Hopkins University who’s touring collidge campuses to lecture about “the ethics of procreation” and convince students–almost as defenseless as your money–not to have children when they grow up, if they grow up (http://www.npr.org/2016/08/18/479349760/should-we-be-having-kids-in-the-age-of-climate-change).

The reason we shouldn’t have children–you’ve guessed it already–is Climbit Change. Yup. Says the ol’ philosopher, “Dangerous climate change is going to be happening by then (2036)” and we’re all gonna die as extras in the world’s biggest Mad Max movie. “Maybe we should protect our kids by not having them,” says he.

Oh! And no policies proposed by governments so far, he says, will solve the problem: much more “drastic cuts in carbon emissions are needed.” So you’d best all learn how to live like 12th century Ethiopian peasants, unless you’re one of the sages and leaders who have to rule the world. Then you can keep your air conditioners. And your private jets, limousines, yachts, and mansions. Philosopher-kings are entitled to these luxuries.

This comes on the heels of Australian temperature readings plummeting some 10 degrees just by removing the “smart cards” that “filter out” all the low temperatures that scientists don’t want to see. Out of sight, out of mind.

They just don’t stop, do they? They keep on trying to scare us into giving them gigantic new powers to control our lives and bigger and bigger gobbets of our money. But this is only what we should expect from leftid blowhards who declare there’s no such thing as objective truth.

If there’s anybody out there who thinks this spiel is not satanic–think again.


It Gets Cold When You Stop Cheating!

Image result for images of three-card monte game

This headline from The Australian quickly caught my eye:

“Temperature readings plunge after Australia Bureau of Meteorology orders end to ‘Tampering'” (http://www.cfact.org/2017/08/07/temperature-readings-plunge-after-australias-bureau-of-meteorology-orders-end-to-tampering/)

And suddenly it’s about 10 degrees (Centigrade) cooler in Australia.

Gee, why were the readings so high? Because “smart cards”–we’ve told you to beware of that word “smart” when certain people use it–“filter out the coldest readings.” Well, that would do it. The low temperature readings simply “vanish from the record.”

It’s sort of like deleting the outs from your batting average: always makes it go up.

Anyway… toldja, toldja, toldja so! It’s a fake, it’s a scam, it’s a hustle, it’s a power grab!

Really–how many times do these people have to be caught lying and cheating before the world catches on?


New Global Warming Threat! Your Pet

Image result for images of nice cats

Ooooh! First they came for our cars, then they came for our air conditioners, then they came for our freakin’ toilet paper–and now they’re coming for our pets. Save The Planet from cats and dogs!

According to “scientists” [sic.] at UCLA, “as the threat of Global Warming increases” [cue raspberry sound effect]… “environmentally-conscious pet owners may need to make some tough choices…” and ultimately make “a transition to pets that eat less meat,” instead of dogs and cats (https://patch.com/california/hollywood/fido-fluffy-are-hurting-environment-ucla-study-says).

Well, ever since the town said I couldn’t have a pet elephant…

Cats and dogs serve a positive purpose in the lives of humans. In fact, they serve any number of constructive purposes.

Has anybody calculated how much carbon dioxide, and sheer hot air, liberals and “scientists” belch into the atmosphere? Like, how much good does Debbie Wasserman Schultz actually do, compared to the good done by any cat or dog?

What do these benighted people want from us? What will we have to yield to them before their appetite for our liberties is satisfied? I mean, do they want us to switch over to, say, pet houseflies? Yeah, that would be about their speed. “Here, Buzzy, Buzzy! I’ve got some nice rotting filth for you!”

Science, education, journalism, government–all, all, all our institutions in a high-speed race to the bottom!

May Jesus Christ Our Lord defend us.


‘Let’s Plug Soldiers in to Computers…’

Image result for images of outer limits super soldier

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has put up $65 million to see if they can find a way to hook up people’s brains to computers (http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/darpa-computer-plug-in-brains-lost-vision-hearing-speech-restore-us-military-r-n-d-research-neural-a7835131.html). Five grants will be handed out to five assorted research bodies.

Oh, boy.

Now, I do hate conspiracy theories. But what we have here is a lot of talk about “developing an implantable system to provide precision communication between the brain and the digital world” and it’s going to have all these wonderful peachy-keen medical applications. We also get some muttering about using new technology to produce “super soldiers.” I’m sure The Outer Limits did an episode about that in the 1960s.

So here we go again, this time actually putting up money for it–the Smart Science dream of half-human, half-computer supermen.

And again, the thing is, we already know this is a very bad idea! “Colonel, I demand to know why my soldiers are marching backwards!” “Well, gee, General, we just plugged ’em into Lee’s computer.” “Confound it, Colonel! Yesterday you plugged them into Susan’s computer and they all forgot how to put their shoes on!” You can see the potential.

And it always comes wrapped up in a lovely promise of great strides in medicine, nobody gonna be sick no more, doo-dah…

The only silver lining on this cloud is that $65 million, in the scheme of things these days, won’t go very far. They’ll burn their way through that in a week.

And we know it’s a terrible idea. Every instinct cries against it.

Maybe, just for once, we ought to listen. God gave us those instincts for a reason.


Scary Martian Comes to ‘Life’

Image result for images of life science fiction movie

Hey, we saw a cool science fiction movie yesterday, a nice and scary one–Life, which we rented from amazon.

The ideology of unbelief dictates that life be found on other planets. Somehow that’s supposed to prove there is no God. You’d have to ask them how that works. Although I wouldn’t bother.

But if there were… this movie shows you what might happen.

“Oh, boy, Martian soil samples! Why, look at that–a little tiny organism… let’s see if we can wake it up…” Cue to Colin Clive in Frankenstein, screaming exultantly, “It’s alive! It’s alive!

Actually, messing around with alien organisms seems like it would be a very bad idea. Somebody on that space station should’ve read The Andromeda Strain. But they do screw around with it, they just can’t help themselves, they give it a cutesy-poo nickname–and of course it winds up loose, and sets about killing everybody there. It’s sort of a half-octopus, half-starfish that gets bigger and bigger and smarter and smarter with every victim it devours.

And everything goes wrong. They should’ve watched Jurassic Park before they left earth. All these carefully thought-out protocols and procedures, all the bright ideas of scientific whiz kids–well, the Martian monster doesn’t know and certainly doesn’t care about any of that.

I really didn’t notice who was in the cast. All the characters were too busy trying to stay alive, and had no time to devote to personal issues. I can say the film was well-acted, well-directed, fast-paced, and with a straightforward cinematography that didn’t make my wife seasick, watching it. A very effective study in suspense punctuated by frantic action.

Again and again the movies we make tell us that our science isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and warn us to proceed with caution. On some level, we know this!

And yet we never listen. It’s not Martian monsters that devour us, but bright ideas and clever societal innovations dreamed up by blockheads hailed as sages.

 


When an Old, Old Joke Becomes Reality

Image result for images of smart pills

Don’t you love it when that happens? A satire takes tangible form. A joke isn’t a joke anymore because it’s come to life.

“We want to make better humans,” gabbles the CEO of a company that manufactures and sells “cognitive supplements” (http://www.cnbc.com/2017/07/06/hvmn-wants-to-make-better-humans-through-biohacking.html). He calls it “biohacking,” with a view toward “cognitive enhancement.” The idea is that if you take his little pills, you’re gonna get smarter. And surely they can hook you up to a computer to give you regular boosts of real smartness.

Anyway, here’s the ancient joke they’ve brought to life:

Some ninny was sold a packet of rabbit droppings, having been told that they were pills that would boost his intelligence. The next day he came back to the vendor, hopping mad. “You %$#@%! You sold me rabbit turds!”

And the vendor smiled and said, “See, you’re getting smarter already!”

It is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves (Psalm 100:2). Boy, oh, boy, do modern pin-heads have a problem with that verse!

Bill Nye the Gender Guy

Image result for images of dizzy bill nye

Nobody does more than Bill Nye “the Science Guy” to foster the notion that science is crap.

When he’s not campaigning for people who don’t believe his Global Warming schtick to be thrown in jail, the former PBS kids’ TV star–ooh! he has a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering!–is carrying water, now, for the transgender delusion. On his new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves the World, this guy with a bachelor’s degree said there ain’t just two genders, male and female, but gender is “more like a kaleidoscope” (http://libertyviral.com/bill-nye-gender-ideology-guy/). Dig it–“the gender kaleidoscope.” Someone is sure to parley that into a federal grant.

By the way…”saves the world” from what? Nye says abortion is good. Maybe he saves the world from babies.

In 1996, on his PBS show, Nye said “gender” was determined by chromosomes. XX chromosome=female. XY chromosome=male. No kaleidoscope. His recent remarks would appear to conflict with his former observations.

The alleged fact-checker, Snopes.com, rushed to defend him from the charge of being against the gender spectrum before he was for it. “His understanding is evolving” [extra credit for saying it “evolves”!]. And, “Nye’s understanding of sex and gender, as well as the world’s, has grown since then.” Now you know why I don’t pay a lot of attention to Snopes.

Nye says, “We have to listen to science. And the science says we’re all on a spectrum.”

“Science says.” It’s just like “Simon says.” We offer a brief translation: “I am the smartest person here, so what I say, goes for everybody. The rest of you, shut up!”

Yup. It’s crap.


Humanist Poison–and the Antidote

Image result for images of computer hooked up to human brain

I have to admit this news story distressed me. Let the headline speak: “New computers could delete thoughts without your knowledge, experts warn.” (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/delete-thoughts-read-your-mind-without-your-knowledge-neurotechnology-new-human-rights-laws-a7701661.html)

Yeah, I know–first you have to find some before you can delete ’em. But for those of us who still have thoughts, we are now warned about “machines that can read our thoughts,” brought to you by the exciting new field of neurotechnology.

This, they say, could lead to “brain hacking” and other “intrusions.” Like, you wake up in the morning and find yourself thinking, “Y’know, it really is time for a world government! And George Soros is just the one to run it! Man, I love Hillary Clinton!”

The horror, the horror…

We might even get computers that allow you to “type just by thinking.” That doesn’t promise much in the way of readability, let alone literary quality.

Anyway, it truly bothers me to contemplate foolish, power-hungry, sinners getting so much power. And you know they’ll pitch it to us the greatest thing since duct tape. Just wait’ll you see the sales job that they do on this. Don’t be the only one on your block who doesn’t have a computer interface!

The Antidote

God’s word is the antidote. He won’t just sit up there and watch the fun.

I found comfort today in Psalm 46. So here it is, King James Version.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved; he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

God is able to deal with nincompoops who try to rule the world.
