Are You In An Information Silo?

Experts Are Not “Science”

26 Mar

I cannot vouch for legitimacy of this video. I do not know who Kary Mullis, the purported inventor of PCR test is. I will say that he is 100% correct when he calls Anthony Fauci an administrator.

I’ve said this a thousand times and I’ll never stop saying it.

Science is a process to determine facts.
Politics is a process to determine power.
Experts are always chosen using the latter.
Therefore experts are better politicians than they are scientists

Science is trying to replace religion. The problem is that science has no central truth to check with. Watch around 6:20. Mullis says, “There isn’t an up there, there… The academy of science is a bunch of idiots like us… There are no wise men on top making sure we don’t do something dumb.”

I would love to point to a book or a G.O.D. as the one truth to check everything against but I don’t believe in the supernatural, omnipotent or omniscient entity who created us and Granted Our Dominion over earth. That doesn’t mean I don’t believe that religion is necessary. Truth is necessary – moral truth. The guiding star.

Religion has pointed us in the right direction. Religion is a process for finding truth. Science can’t speak to morality. It can help – nay, it is essential – in this day and age to use science to help us understand moral truth.

Religion points to the good and the true. Trying to walk it’s path, we have discovered much truth about our species and the world. Mistakes were made and continue to be made but process of elimination through competition, evolution, has chosen the best ways to live. But all instituted systems reach a point where they begin to stifle progress. See, the Ottoman Jannissary. Also investigate their Caligraphers‘ resistance to the printing press that sealed that empire’s fate.

Science grew out of religious yearnings for truth and understanding to stand apart from religion. When we use science to replace religion, we inevitably elevate our scientists to the level clergy or even sainthood.

But there is no singular truth from who’s authority they speak.

“Trust the science” is the mantra which means, “Don’t ask any questions”. But, we’ve forgotten that science is means always asking questions. “Experts” seek only power, not truth.

Today on Twitter Episode 1

24 Mar

Everyday on Twitter I seem to see the same things. These posts were taken from March 22-23.

I get in one war of words with a delusional person: Someone explaining how ‘good sources’ don’t spread propaganda.

One thing that makes me puke: Low T Men

One thing that makes me laugh: The GOAT Journalist!

One thing that makes me cry: Please Stop Punishing the Youth!

One thing that drives me crazy:
People complaining that their names don’t translate easily into their adopted country’s language. I have to hear every service worker butcher my name to get medical treatment, food, government services, financial services. Face it communication was already fucked and now we have to wear masks.

One thing that inspires: This is way overdue.

One thing that makes my jaw drop: Quelle Prediction!

One thing that confirms all my worst fears: Financial ruin for the average person, power for the elite.

One thing that gives me hope: The #JustSayNo hashtag has gotten off the ground – not without triggering the tyranny enablers. A Twitter “Doctor” telling me not to listen to Twitter “Doctors”.

Hope round 2: maybe we can finally see the warfare China has been waging?

Science Cannot Tell You What It Means To Be A Man

23 Mar

It’s true. The definition of the word “man” is a question of linguistics. It depends on culture but it is based on biology.

The word “male”, in contrast, is a purely scientific term. It helps us distinguish the 2 different sexes by their biological function in mating. It can help distinguish the small number of ambiguous cases such as chromosomal abnormalities.

So what does the word “man” mean? To start defining a word, you need to establish it’s basic, minimum requirements. I will try to define man in the broadest, most universal way possible.

To be a man, one must meet these qualifications:

  1. Adult Male: Man means adult male. It’s most basic definition.
    • Yes, you could see a stranger and say, “Look at that man coming toward us.” The response could be “He’s not really a man, look at his spindly arms and his hunched shoulders.” “Yes, but he’s a man in the most basic sense.” He’s still a “man”, but he may not truly be a “MAN”.
  2. A MAN is an adult male who takes on responsibility.
    • The more responsibility, the more manly. A family man, is by default a MAN because he takes the responsibility for his family.
    • Responsibility must come with moral fortitude of some kind. Deciding how to organize and prioritize your life means determining what is good, better and best. So to be a man, requires a moral framework.
  3. A MAN must be able to take risk and endure hardship
    • Most cultures have rites of passages in which men must take or accept risk. Some primitive tribes made boys jump off of high platforms with just a vine to break their fall. Others must survive wilderness ordeals. Jewish boys have a bar mitzvah at which time they take on the risks and responsibilities of adults.
    • Western culture has been cleansed of these rites of passages for men. Military service is not as prevalent. Institutions once had initiation rituals but they’ve been termed “HAZING” and banned.
    • Rituals are helpful but not the only way to prove your ability to take risks and endure hardship. Sports are a good way and life always has some difficulties that will make a man out of you – you just don’t get the single, social event that tells you it’s time to MAN UP.
    • Unfortunately, drinking and drugs have taken over as a ritual of sorts, causing all sorts of damage. Tattoos may once have signified toughness but mostly signify hipsteristic tendencies.
  4. A MAN must be able to defend himself and those he loves.
    • Standing up for yourself, standing your ground is a hallmark of manhood – not necessarily physical fighting. Being able to speak your mind and standing up for what is right takes bravery.

While womanhood is bestowed upon every girl who becomes an adult, manhood is a choice. The term gentleman has fallen by the wayside as the term was deracinated – associated with being “nice” or basically wimpy and pretentious. Read Dumas if you want to learn the true meaning of gentleman – hint, they fought a LOT. “Lady” has similarly been discarded; no women want to be called ladies anymore. Sad.

Manhood is not necessarily about being tough and doing manly things. Sure, you can hunt and fish or chop wood like a real man but you could also be a florist and be a man if that is what you truly want to do. Arranging flowers may not win you praise from the men in your community or impress the girls much. However, if that is the profession you’ve decided you’re best suited for, you need to stand up to that social pressure, dammit, and do it. Now you’re a man and you can pay to raise a family.

The degradation and defamation of the term “man” has led to the recent surge in adult boyhood. Adult males whose biceps are as skinny as their wrists. Young adult males who have testosterone levels of 80 year-old men.

What does it mean to be a man? It’s not just about your bicep muscles but they have something to do with it. That is certainly a question for the ages. The answer could be still blowing in the wind.

18 Places 2+2=4 and One Place It Doesn’t

12 Mar

What? 2+2 sometimes doesn’t equal 4? I thought you said it always does.

It does.

2+2 = 4 everywhere on earth.
2+2 = 4 in Asia.
2+2 = 4 in Istanbul

2+2 = 4 in Australia. 2+2 = 4 in Angola. 2+2 = 4 in Saudi Arabia. 2+2 = 4 in Paris. 2+2 = 4 in London. 2+2 = 4 in North America. 2+2 = 4 in South America. 2+2 = 4 in Antarctica.

It is not culturally, temporally or locality dependent.

2+2 = 4 on the Moon.
2+2 = 4 on Mars.
2+2 = 4 on Jupiter.
2+2 = 4 in the middle of the Sun.

It is not limited to this solar system. It doesn’t matter if there is life or not.

2+2 = 4 in Alpha Centauri.
2+2 = 4 in the Horse Head Nebula.
2+2 = 4 in the Andromeda Galaxy.

That’s 18. I promised you one place where 2 + 2 <> 4. Can you guess?

The only place where 2 + 2 cannot equal 4 is where 2 does not exist.

Nonetheless, if you add 2 gravitational singularities with 2 gravitational singularities, you still get 4 …until they merge and become 1 but then you probably get a Big Bang.

Why Do You Feel Threatened by Critical Thinking™

12 Mar

Why do you feel threatened when someone teaching your children about Critical Thinking™???

Why would you worry if your child’s teacher is trying to make them doubt objective reality?

I’m not talking about the notion that perception is all subjective and therefore it is difficult to determine the truth or be certain that your knowledge and understanding are completely 100% accurate. I mean, the very existence of reality is being challenge.

There is no fact more certain that the fact that 2 added to 2 is 4. This is true – always. 2 + 2 never equals anything but 4.

However, there are people in the education system – in Canada – who think it is helpful and necessary to make them question this fact. To do this, they employ multiple tricks, basically sleight of hand, and they call this thinking critically™.

Then they dare to say that people who call them out are feeling “threatened”. Well damn right!

If you were teaching children that Paris is a country in Africa, I would call you out.

If you were teaching children that the distilled water freezes at 100C, I would call you out.

These statements are wrong. The only purpose you would have of teaching them falsehoods or tricking them into doubting provable facts is to mess with their reasoning skills.

Why would someone want to teach faulty reasoning to a generation of people?

I won’t presume to know their minds, but one possibility is to make them less capable of reasoning and, therefore, easier to manipulate. Once they’re easier to manipulate and less able to reason critically, it would be easier to make them accept ideas you favor – even of a controversial political agenda.

This is a presumption. I have no proof. But, it’s interesting to see that the same people teaching kids to question 2+2=4 are the same people pushing Radical and Woke Math.

Critical Thinking or Thinking Critically

11 Mar

James Lindsay has been at the forefront of the war on Critical Race Theory (CRT) and the 2+2 sometimes-doesn’t-equal 4 crowd. One of the main combatants in the latter fight has been a Canadian teacher named Jamie Mitchell

Now Jamie is such an enlightened individual that his political opinions are not a matter of politics, but a matter of math and therefore should and even must be discussed in math class.

So brazen is this man that he taunts anyone who challenges his assertion with the accusation of cowardice. You’re just threatened that we’re teaching the kids to “think critically™” . But Jamie doesn’t mean critically. Thinking critically, in CRT parlance means CRT orthodox thinking.

So, I wandered over to this warrior’s twitter page to see what he thought of my opinion but, to my surprise, he wasn’t interested in facing off.

Jamie Mitchell on Bravery

Oh my gosh! Was Mr. Mitchell threatened by my critical thinking?

I think it’s time someone publishes a handbook on the inverse of woke math. How about some conservative math questions? What if children have real-world math problems that they can relate to?

Question 1: If the violent crime rate increases 10% for every 10 police taken out of a South Chicago precinct and each police officer costs $150,000 per year, by what rate will the murder rate rise next year if the current rate is 1.8 murders / 10,000 if the personnel budget is cut by $2,500,000? How many extra people will die?

I’m sure we can think of more questions about illegal border crossing and kids in Biden’s cages, transgender suicide rates, government debt and compound interest. These should all be subjects covered in math class. Agree?

Building A Strong Marriage Step 3: Work Your Marriage Every Day

16 Feb

So you followed Steps 1 & 2 and you’ve successfully found a partner willing to tie the knot. You worked on yourself and attracted members of the opposite sex. You met many prospects and picked one that was not only doing the same but appears to have a compatible personality and lifestyle and you’ve fallen in love. Hard work has resulted, as it so often does, in good fortune.

The hard part is done, right?

Not by a long shot. I know it took you years to get here; however, keep in mind, that you will be married longer than you were a single adult. Even the smoothest journey through life has many miles of rough road ahead.

If everything goes well, marriage will give you plenty of joy and comfort. It will help you feel confident and give your life a sense of stability that frees you to take risks in other areas of life. You have an advocate, an ally and a friend to help you through difficult times and help with the burdens life heaps onto your shoulders, not to mention all of the physical and emotional comfort that comes from love, sweet love.

But even a great relationship is also a source of stress. Your partner will bring along habits and idiosyncrasies that you may not have noticed that could annoy you one day. You’re not really a free person now that someone else’s needs and tastes must be considered for before every action. You’re now living with someone who might want or need to talk when you’re really in the mood for some quiet time alone. You now have perform your role as husband or wife at all times. Luckily, that’s what learning to become an adult was all about. Now it’s time to put the lessons into practice for real. It’s your show.

But wait, there’s more! Today, you face the modern dilemma that feminism will make you feel like are more the just the two of you in this relationship. Feminism doesn’t just “empower women”; it also empowers other people to stick their noses into other people’s relationships. It empowers people to criticize the way you talk, the way you divide chores, what you watch on TV and every other aspect of your marriage. Feminism proclaims that the personal is political and there will be no peace within a marriage. Even if none of your friends are infected with feminism (boy are you lucky), the television and other media bombard messages into your home about how stupid, incompetent and mean men are and how marriage is boring and outdated. If this

So you know how navigate this world. How do you navigate your own relationship?

I credit Greg Swann with saying “Do you want to end the day married? Start the day married!” This idea has guided much of my thinking toward my own marriage and, I have to say, it has helped me keep committed to making it work. I keep reminding myself that to make a marriage work, I must work my marriage.

So what does it mean to work your marriage? It doesn’t mean sweating a lot. But, it does mean, firstly, that you should take care of your basics. Get things done around the house, clean up after yourself and take care of your maintenance duties. It means having an income and pursuing your career. It means putting down the phone and talking to your spouse. It means putting your family before your blog – notice how rarely I publish a blog entry. It means playing board and card games with your kids – keep in mind that mind-numbing games of Go Fish and Old Maid turn into enjoyable games of Euchre and Gin Rummy when they’re older. It means biting your tongue when you’re grumpy and want to say something mean, taking a breath and thinking about a nice thing to say.

Working your marriage, most importantly of all, means giving your attention to your marriage. Listen when your wife or husband talks. Make an effort to do something fun together.

It is knowing that there are 3 kinds of love in a life-long relationship. It all started when you were hot for each other and eros filled your every thought. Then, the passion faded but another type of love entered the mix. You learned about each other and learned to respect their inner qualities and want to see them flourish and be happy. This is called Agape. Finally, as your lives intertwine, your long-term, committed love develops. Greeks called this Storgic Love. This is the love of commitment, trust and fidelity. The love of family. It is a love with a duty to sustain the bond. You’ll appreciate this love when the worry over your bills piling up give you heart-burn and wake you up in the middle of the night.

While the first two types of love are less enduring than this storgic love of family, it doesn’t mean that they completely fade. Passion is fleeting but it can return again and again to your marriage as long as the other two types of love remain strong and you’re paying attention. Life is a long arduous process. Your bedroom life may take a back seat, now and then, to the stresses that family life doles out. Then, a fun trip to somewhere warm or overcoming a stressful event suddenly sparks a fiery return of eros. If you’re both taking care of yourselves and each other, the energy and attraction will continue.

Keep in mind that there is ebb and flow in your life that affects your marriage. If you get discouraged, you might feel emotionally detached from your spouse. Make extra effort to make a connection. Don’t go hide in your “Man Cave”. Go sit on the couch beside your wife and make an effort to be together. It’s ok for him to watch the game and her to watch a medical drama but maybe you should also choose a TV series to stream.

A marriage is like a sail boat. With basic daily maintenance, it can provide a fun-filled journey. If you neglect it, your trip will end in disaster.
