    It’s just the flu, bro! Things to watch for: 1. Overstatement of deaths due to Corona 2. Democrat Governors maintaining strict lockdown rules after it is clear the virus is manageable 3. Pork being added to stimulus (too late on this stimulus but maybe not too late for any future things passed at federal or state level). 4. Tax hikes. 5. Mandatory Corona vaccines - I don’t want them and as I have said before I would rather my infant get Corona than get a common cold. Watch for politicians to be lobbied by big pharma for this and similar...

    It’s just the flu, bro. Some good news - Trump’s rhetoric lately seems to be recognizing that this Coronavirus is overblown, relative to the economic damage of a lockdown. He is discussing suicides, apparently. Noteworthy that suicides per 100000 went up by about 4 or 5 (17 to 21, approximately) when the Great Depression started. If he thinks economy first he might save 10000 lives from suicide relative to a cost of a few thousand extra deaths due to Coronavirus. Also note the next trick - almost all deaths will be attributed to Coronavirus over the next year but the...

    You know the rules. Only flubros and flubras. “Oh-no” FReepers (AKA Fearpers) are banned. Freeper Preppers who fear the virus’ impact on the world are also not permitted but Freeper Preppers who fear the panic and government intervention and toilet paper shortages are permitted in the thread. This government/media panic destroys our economy and kills more than the Coronavirus, which is barely worse than a bad flu. I know there is trouble when one of those 4 Democrat witches (I get them mixed up and can’t remember which) said she supported Trump.

They have no fear of falsification, though, because all other explanations beside Darwin’s have been ruled out. They just move the goalposts and carry on.Lichens “Way Younger than Thought”In the old evolutionary saga, lichens were among the first plants to colonize the land.

    Back when the world was young, I was taught that four visionaries’ theories shaped modernity: Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein. Of them, only Einstein’s could be subjected to scientific scrutiny. The rest remained hypotheses, resistant to such standard scientific tests as falsifiability, replicability and predictability, but so beautiful in their comprehensiveness that the intelligentsia accepted them for what they were not: settled science. Time has proven unkind to Freud’s and Marx’s theories, but very kind to Darwinism. Why? Shhh. If you dare to ask, you invite ridicule. Because the minute one expresses doubt about Darwin’s basic...

    Renowned Yale computer scientist David Gelernter claims that he is abandoning Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Gelernter, who formerly served as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, published a column earlier this year detailing his move away from evolutionary theory. The column, which was titled “Giving Up Darwin,” provides Gelernter’s arguments against Darwinism. Darwin’s theory predicts that new life forms evolve gradually from old ones in a constantly branching, spreading tree of life. Those brave new Cambrian creatures must therefore have had Precambrian predecessors, similar but not quite as fancy and sophisticated. They could not have all blown out...

    Some Professionally-Safe Darwin Doubters Are Now Speaking Out August 5, 2019 | Jerry Bergman When the coast is clear, and their careers are safe, some academics can afford to doubt Darwin publicly. by Jerry Bergman, PhD My experience after teaching at three universities, when discussing Darwinism with colleagues, I have learned there exist many more Darwin skeptics than commonly believed. Most are in the closet for very good reasons (career survival), or at least they decline to publicly speak out about their views opposing Darwinism. The evidence against Darwinism is so great that it seems inevitable a few would speak...

    American ^ | August 5, 2019 | Bruce Walker
    Gallup recently announced that forty percent of all Americans believe in creationism. A better storyline to its recent polling data might be that only one in five Americans believes in Darwinism, which was a wobbly theory when first proposed almost two centuries ago and which has become an increasingly improbable explanation for the origin of life and species during the last two hundred years. That would be a better storyline, but it is not the storyline presented by Gallup. Darwinists are invariably the product of an educational system that has as little to do with free thought as the educational...

    Recorded on June 6, 2019 in Italy. Based on new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, should Darwin’s theory of evolution be dismissed, dissected, developed or replaced with a theory of intelligent design? Has Darwinism really failed? Peter Robinson discusses it with David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer, who have raised doubts about Darwin’s theory in their two books and essay, respectively The Deniable Darwin, Darwin’s Doubt, and “Giving Up Darwin” (published in the Claremont Review of Books).

    A Darwinist Deconstructs the Declaration of Independence David Klinghoffer | @d_klinghoffer May 14, 2019 Stephen Meyer has written here about how the ideas framed by the Declaration of Independence, the “sources of our rights as citizens,” are rooted in design thinking. There is one source that is more basic than any other, yet that receives less than the attention it deserves. I refer to the idea that there is an intelligent creator who can be known by reason from nature, a key tenet underlying the Declaration of Independence — as well as, curiously, the modern theory of intelligent design. As...

    When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. During this event, the “Cambrian explosion,” many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. In Darwin’s Doubt, Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life—a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been...

    "Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser) As Pannekoek affirms, Darwin's mythological miracle-producing life and change-making evolutionary energy has destroyed the entire foundation of Christian theism. In supplanting Genesis 1-11, it has also destroyed biblical infallibility, transcendent moral law, sexual ethics, the gospel claims of Jesus Christ, and imago Dei, the source of man's personhood and innate dignity. In destroying the foundations of Christianity Darwinism has also destroyed the foundations of our Constitutional Republic,...

Finally, One of the Evils of Darwinism Has Gone Mainstream by Dr Jerry Bergman 2-24-19 A new PBS documentary, The Eugenics Crusade, begins with Darwin, who inspired his cousin, Francis Galton, who spent his life developing Darwinian eugenics with the hope that it would be used to make both better people and a better society. To do this, Francis Galton was inspired by the “work of his half cousin Charles Darwin [who] believed that evolution was this natural...

    Materialists are just waking up to realities that ID advocates have been writing about for decades.The late Robert Jastrow ended his book God and the Astronomers (1978) with a picturesque quote about scientific progress: For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.

    There was a song, in the 1970's, titled "Cruel To Be Kind", performed by Nick Lowe. The lyrics, in part, read "You've gotta be cruel to be kind, in the right measure, cruel to be kind, it's a very fine line." Recently, a relative and I happened to share a particular viewpoint about a particular issue, and I celebrated the agreement. Yet, she implied she wanted to understand me better, to understand why I hold the beliefs I do. I seek to be understood. My spiritual life has drifted from Roman Catholicism, to an exploration of Judaism (my father coming...

    Humans may be evolving an 'ultimate hangover' gene to protect against alcoholism. That's according to a new study that looked at a variant of a gene that makes booze intolerable to the body. Scientists claim this gene variant is being favoured by evolution - and, in time, could stop us from drinking alcohol in the future.

    Shooting at Tannerite can be fun to watch, but its important to be safety minded. In reality this is explosives and there are instances where accident happens when one doesn’t heed to safety. Like this 23-year-old David Pressley and some friends put about three pounds of Tannerite into an old riding mower with the intent to shoot it and blow it up with the explosive. The story goes, after “getting more than 20 shots” off the lawnmower exploded. Pressley can be heard yelling “I blew my leg off!” and blood spatters appeared on his person. Pressley’s friends applied a tourniquet...

    I have written three rather lengthy books about discrimination against scientists who dared to question the validity of Darwinism, more commonly known as Darwin Dissidents.[1] C.S. Lewis predicted that Darwinists would become totalitarians when he was alive, and history has proved him correct.[2] One recent case is that of the distinguished paleontologist, Dr. Günter Bechly, a world expert on fossil insects, who was forced to resign [a tactful way to say he was fired] as curator for the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart, Germany. Then, as a result, he was censored from Wikipedia. The editors at Wikipedia attempted...
