Enlightened Culture and the price we must pay

Enlightened Culture and the price we must pay crusade-2-300x225

We have absolutely no hope whatsoever of preventing the climatic catastrophe that is coming. Even were we to stabilise greenhouse gas production at today’s levels, the disaster would still happen. Were we to take them back to the levels of a hundred years ago – impossible anyway— it would still make no difference.

All that we might gain is a decade or two more time. However, we can decide whether our Enlightened Culture will survive, to help us rebuild, or be destroyed. But we must act quickly, for time is running out and we have given the enemy too much already. Continue reading Enlightened Culture and the price we must pay

Trump’s stand for science: Title IX rights restored to women

Trump's stand for science: Title IX rights restored to women Title-IX-graphic-O-300x218Last week US President Donald Trump reversed one of the most egregious acts of anti-science perpetrated by the catastrophic Obama administration. The shock-waves are still reverberating. He rolled back the infamous ‘guidance’ to US Title IX, issued last year, which attempted to force Federally-funded programmes to remove protections for women based on their sex.

Enlightened Culture versus Snowflake Culture

Snowflake Culture in action: rioting, looting and violence

Events of recent months contributed to a discussion between myself, Rod Fleming, and Karis Burkowski. Karis carried out the role of editor and eventually co-author of our book ‘Why Men Made God’. In reviewing the book for a second edition, we encountered several points of discussion that highlight the difference between enlightened culture and regressive-left Snowflake Culture. I thought our discussion was worth sharing.Enlightened Culture versus Snowflake Culture snowflake-fascism-300x200

Karis Burkowski (KB): The climate catastrophe is inevitable, but can still be somewhat ameliorated. How our cultures rebuild themselves in a post-catastrophe world is a valuable discussion…Self-serving cults, particularly those with medieval attitudes, must not be allowed to gain ascendancy. We must change as a species, like we did post-Toba, and do better next time.

You mentioned that the friends of atheists are Christians. That may be so in Europe, but it is far from true over here. Atheists are still ‘closeted’ in many parts of the US and for good reason…The antithesis of Islam is not Christianity, it is secularism. Both groups would destroy atheists if they could.

Transvestite autogynephiles and transsexuals

There are two distinct types of ‘trans woman’ — transsexuals and transvestite autogynephiles. These are people born male who present as women. Other than that, the two types have no similarity to each other. However, this has been deliberately confused by individuals in one of these types, to advantage themselves at the expense of the other, and also to harm women. This has caused widespread misunderstanding. We need a field guide. Continue reading Transvestite autogynephiles and transsexuals

2016: a bad year? No, a new beginning.

2016: a bad year? No, a new beginning. Donald_Trump_6905693-300x193
The Donald’s election as President of the USA was the defining moment of 2016. The alternative would have doomed us.

2016 began, for me, in the Philippines, where I now am. It had a less than auspicious beginning: I remember my shock at hearing about the death of David Bowie. But, while the toll of celebrities continued, this was not the most surprising thing about the year by any means.

That something was afoot became clear early on, in May, when Rodrigo Duterte, a fast talking populist, was elected as president of the Philippines. Most people in the West hardly noticed this, but it was a straw in the wind. It is true that Duterte’s route to power was laid open by the Philippines electoral system, which is single-stage, and the fact that the centrist vote was split between two popular candidates, Mar Roxas and Grace Poe. Duterte exploited this division expertly and won, on around 38% of the vote. Continue reading 2016: a bad year? No, a new beginning.
