Surely someone must have practiced socialism, somewhere, in history. And because socialism is not capitalism, that ancient socialist civilization should still be in business today–and by far the most properous country in the world.
Gasp! The horror! If all the oceans in the world, all at the same time, were suddenly to release all the heat stored in them, we’d all be fried! It’s true, I tell you! The International Panel on Climate Change says so! Oh, if only the government had more arbitrary power over us–!
The fact that there could be no reason for all the oceans to cough up all their heat didn’t faze any of the Climate Wizards of 2013; and they’re still around today, still trying to control your life. And now that their buddies have stolen a U.S. presidential election, they think they’re in the catbird seat. “Boy, will we sock it to the deplorables now!”
How do you get a job making people afraid of impossible things?
Boy Robot meets Girl Robot–what? what about all those other “genders”?–they make baby robots, and after I dunno how many generations of this, the robots *evolve* into other kinds of robots with no resemblance to the original–
Try to make sense of this. “There is no Intelligent Design!” And then, to prove it, they design robots, design them to “evolve”–and it’s all just a simulation, there’s nothing real involved–and then claim that this proves Evolution by totally random chance and there is no God and no God’s laws so really we can fornicate with a pile of rocks or anything else–[pause for hyperventilating Scientist].
Here’s a Chalcedon exclusive I wrote back in 2005, reporting a scientific fraud that had The London Times and a lot of other media completely snowed. But they wanted to believe that “religiosity”–by which the author meant Christian belief–is harmful to society.
Trotted out as someone with an advanced degree in “social science,” author Gregory Paul actually had no advanced degree in anything. He was primarily an illustrator of books about dinosaurs. But no one checked, no one questioned; and soon his alleged “findings” were ballyhooed all over America and Britain as “proof” that Christianity is bad.
The Times reporter who covered it was laudably forthright in admitting to the things she didn’t do, which she should have done, in covering the story. I ought to know: I asked her. Ditto the editor of the “scientific journal”–actually, an amateur journal.
The whole mess was served up to us as “science.” And then they wonder why some of us are skeptical about science.
Michael Crichton spent his whole career writing books that warned of succumbing to the delusion that “we are in control.” Many of them were best-sellers; but there’s no evidence that anyone ever believed him.
In Prey, the scientific golden calf is nanotechnology; but really it could be anything. And we have the usual Crichton scenario of cocksure scientists totally losing control and being devoured by their own creation. Shades of Frankenstein. He gives the reader a few memorably creepy scenes, while he’s at it.
Crichton ultimately lost faith in these idols–if he ever had any faith in them in the first place: The Andromeda Strain, his first best-seller, suggests he was always skeptical of that “Ye shall be as gods” sales pitch.
And how the Loving Left reviled him when he died! All because he had too much integrity to hop aboard their Global Warming bandwagon. But that’s the Diversity crowd for you: death to everyone who isn’t them.
Look at that. It’s been four years since Science discovered–to its dismay, we might add–that “global warming” is caused not by common people’s air conditioners and toilet paper, but by vast natural processes that no one understands and no amount of government can control. In this case, an overall warming of the Pacific Ocean: “El Nino,”
Well, you weren’t expecting leftids to give up “Climate Change,” did you? It’s the best excuse they’ve ever concocted for grabbing control of other people’s lives. It’s kind of a sickness with them. Like alcoholism.
Oh–and over here it’s twenty-some degrees this morning… Hoo-hah, Global Warming.
The Lord of the Flies would like us all to eat like flies.
Very little time can go by without leftids and “Science” trying to talk us into eating bugs. Here’s a Save The Planet mob from Scandinavia who say humans ought to eat feces, too. $45,000 prize to anyone who’s ever seen them following their own advice. (“I’ll have the **** platter, please.” “You want flies with that?”)
I suppose we should be thankful that they haven’t thought of making it a Mandate yet. All you little peasants, attention! By order of the governor, you are to eat insects, garbage, and poop! Violators will be shot!
