New Battlefronts

While conservative Christians focus on the near stalemate on evolution, this is happening. This is coming hard and fast. It’s like a heavy cavalry charge where all of us will be trampled to death if we refuse to face the changing threats… and everyone seems happy to argue about the interior volume of the ark…

The Democrat 2020 Totem-pole

I think Elizabeth Warren (Figure 1) is massively afraid of being upstaged on the diversity totem pole by Oprah (Figure 2) in the 2020 Democrat primary. (heh… totem pole) She is afraid that she will lose all political oxygen like the regular GOP candidates did… Since the diversity and progress cultists require ever renewed highs, (like addicts) I think Oprah would be formidable or even unbeatable in the Democrat 2020 primary. See, I think part of Hillary’s problem was that she wasn’t a step up the totem pole from Obama. Going from a black President to a white one is unacceptably regressive for Democrats. Oprah, being black and female, has more diversity points even than Obama, and therefore represents ‘progress’. (Eventually anyone who isn’t minority, female, LGBTetc, and diagnosed with PTSD will be unacceptable to democrats as they will be regressive…) Since the majority of the Democrats in power are white and/or male, I expect the Dems to launch preemptive strikes to keep Oprah out of the 2020 business. And Warren leads the way:

“I don’t know” if America is ready for another celebrity billionaire president, she said. “Here’s what I do know. We are right now in the middle of fights that will determine our future for generations to come.”

Figure 2: ‘Cares about Sexual Harassment’



Oh… look at that a few preliminary preemptive strikes…



Christians in a SciFi world

Just a few days ago one of my student brought this up at our faith and science discussion. I had never heard of it, but the story is so tragic and yet God used the Gibsons to do something incredible. It is so odd and yet such a powerful story that it is hard to place the emotion it produces.

The Gibsons had Emma through the National Embryo Donation Center, a faith-based embryo adoption program in which couples hoping to conceive are paired with embryos that will not be used by their genetic parents. The NEDC said in a news release that it has received donated embryos from all 50 states, as well as foreign countries.

A “baby counter” on the NEDC website tallies its live births at 686 babies.

Emma was frozen in October 1992, when Tina Gibson, 26, was 18 months old. The embryo was thawed in March of this year and implanted two days later. “Emma is such a sweet miracle,” Benjamin Gibson said, according to the news release. “I think she looks pretty perfect to have been frozen all those years ago.”

Science Fiction almost never includes believing Christians but here we get a weird, uncanny view into how Christians behave in a Science Fiction wor


Some ‘Debunked’ Conspiracy Theories May Be True…

A few links here… I thought I’d share… (Which makes me think that although Comet Ping Pong may not be the place, Pizzagate in essence is real…) I don’t have any energy to write about such a gruesome topic, but I will mention that I continue to think (as I told my wife some days ago) that this whole ‘Sexual Harassment Apocalypse‘, the whole media/democrat #MeToo thing, is largely to burn everyone out on hearing about sexual harassment before the really horrible people (the ones that make Brian Singer look humane and moral) get found out. (Also, it makes me wonder if these kinds of rumors (like in the blind item) are what got Andrew Klavan going on A Killer in the Wind…

I’m about to poke a wasp’s nest: not one of those 2 hour old ones with, like 5 wasps on it, but a big full one…. Are women funny?

(I was going to just put “Answer: No… :)” here, but I decided that perhaps some people would stop reading immediately then…)

From anecdotal evidence: I have a funny wife (not just claimed to avoid the couch…) a funny mom and a sister who sometimes borders on the amusing. Naturally, I’m the funniest one (NB ‘Eat the Curds of fortitude’ is exhibit A), but yes. On to the article which was… wrong… on the internet…

The article begins with an anecdote about a TA:

A few years ago, Laura Mickes was teaching her regular undergraduate class on childhood psychological disorders at the University of California, San Diego. It was a weighty subject, so occasionally she would inject a sarcastic comment about her own upbringing to lighten the mood. When she collected her professor evaluations at the end of the year, she was startled by one comment in particular:

“She’s not funny,” the student wrote.

We could start to theorize why this women wasn’t found to be funny by her students, but I think as you read the article (which is interesting on several levels) you will start to form a picture as to what might have counted as ‘a sarcastic comment’. (Also note: sarcasm is hard, you have to be very good natured, funny in other ways, and perhaps even self-deprecating to pull off sarcasm in front of students. Like everyone else, students will find untempered sarcasm to be just nastiness, not humor, from male and female alike.)

The article discusses much interesting research into humor, but the odd thing about this article is the tone… It is hard to place at first, and then one finds increasing levels of bitterness. Somewhere closing in on the end comes the moment of enlightenment for the reader.

“If funniness is an implement of power, women deserve access to it, too.”

Welp… that’s your problem right there. Feminism is fundamentally Nietzschean, where the interplay of the sexes is actually a battle for power over each other. Also, apparently humor is only about power.  Women who have spent their lives absorbing all this poison are also women who automatically dismiss criticism from men as sexist and misogynistic. (How can you learn to make men laugh if you assume that the only reason they don’t is that they hate women?) By assuming that every man that doesn’t laugh is a misogynist, these women cut off their learning feedback and so will never actually be funny. They may be adept at mockery and witty spite, but belly laughter will always elude them.

Humor comes from a real desire to have other people laughing and at ease. This can be honed by lots of trial and error, wherein if something makes your audience laugh you do more of it, and if it doesn’t, you take the instant feedback and try something else. Its possible that, if the women who are angry that men don’t think they are funny just tried and tried until they found some things that work… maybe they’d be funny too. If you look at the research discussed in the article, you’ll find that that is how men are perceived to be funny, they just try more times and more things.



Makes you wonder how bad it is, that they couldn’t find an excuse to put it off until after the election….

UPDATE: Per the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, the investigation will be complete prior to Election Day, in “two or three days, max.”

Trying to sort out the byzantine system of injustice that surrounds Hillary… Like maybe Comey was bought, but not that bought… you know… or maybe whats there isn’t anything, and she can crow for the last week on how awesome she is… or what…? We are nearly at Borgia levels of intrigue in our government… and I suspect we will get the whole way there if Hillary becomes president.
