The Truth about “Inherit the Wind”

by Carol Iannone – February 1997 – for First Things My cmnt: Darwinism is quite simply philosophical materialism dressed up as Science Let’s set the stage In the middle of the hot summer of 1925, the famous “Monkey Trial” took place in Dayton, Tennessee, a small town of about eighteen hundred people in the Cumberland Valley. A young teacher named John Scopes stood accused of violating the Butler Act, a measure passed earlier that year to restrict the teaching of evolution in state-funded schools. The defense featured the famous attorney Clarence Darrow, and the prosecution starred the celebrated orator, populist, … Continue reading The Truth about “Inherit the Wind”

3 Myths From Trans Folklorists That Allow Men Like Lia Thomas To Hurt Themselves And Others

BY: WALT HEYER – FEBRUARY 03, 2022 – 8 MIN READ – for The Federalist Changing genders is a myth and trans folklorists who promote it are harming people, especially children vulnerable to believing fairy tales can come true. University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, a man, has smashed records and shocked sensibilities. Thomas’s performance illustrates the effects and absurdity of denying differences between the sexes, especially men’s obvious bodily advantages in sports. Thomas presumably fulfilled the NCAA’s policy requiring trans athletes to suppress testosterone levels for a designated time before competing on the woman’s team. In January, the NCAA tweaked the rules to place sport-specific … Continue reading 3 Myths From Trans Folklorists That Allow Men Like Lia Thomas To Hurt Themselves And Others

I Know What Happens To The Kids in ‘Transhood’, Because It Happened To Me

BY: WALT HEYER – FEBRUARY 05, 2021 – for The Federalist A new HBO Max documentary, “Transhood,” follows for five years the lives of four Kansas City, Mo. children who believe they are the opposite sex. I identified as a “transgender woman” for eight years. Today, watching this documentary, I marvel at how the events of my childhood groomed me into believing that identifying as the opposite sex was the solution to my gender confusion. My heart goes out to these children who also are being groomed into a transgender life. A Purple Dress Took My Boyhood Away I can trace … Continue reading I Know What Happens To The Kids in ‘Transhood’, Because It Happened To Me

“Lia still has male body parts and is still attracted to women.” By Hank Berrien •Jan 28, 2022 A teammate of Lia Thomas on the University of Pennsylvania women’s swim team told the The Daily Mail that the locker room she shares with Thomas is “definitely awkward because Lia still has male body parts and is still attracted to women.” The Daily Mail report includes that the anonymous teammate stated that although Thomas’ male genitalia are often covered by a towel, there have been a number of times Thomas’ nudity has been revealed, exposing the genitalia for the women … Continue reading Lia Thomas Teammate: Locker Room ‘Definitely Awkward’ Because Thomas’ Male Genitalia Exposed

CDC’s Rochelle Walensky just ‘said the quiet part out loud’ and admitted that for Dems, the COVID pandemic has always been about politics

Posted at 10:36 am on December 29, 2021 by Sarah D – in Twitchy My cmnt: I will tell you what really made the CDC change the self-quarantine period from an unworkable 10 days to 5 – it was because this massive, intrusive, unnecessary testing of people who are not even sick – but especially those in the NFL and the NBA that caused them to revise the “science”.

Katie Pavlich | Posted: Dec 24, 2021 9:30 PM – for Well, here we are again. With the latest version of Wuhan coronavirus swirling, medical fascists and tyrants are telling Americans to shun their unvaccinated family members for yet another holiday gathering.  Out of an abundance of caution they don’t want you going to church on Christmas either, even if you’ve had three doses of the vaccine. After all, that would be gathering in a large group. “One of the questions that Dr. Walensky and I and Dr.  Murthy and others get asked very frequently is that, right now, … Continue reading Ignore Fauci, See Your Family and Go to Church

Katie Pavlich | Posted: Jun 04, 2021 2:20 PM – for This week, thousands of emails belonging to National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Anthony Fauci were released after a Freedom of Information Act request was filed by Buzzfeed and the Washington Post.  The biggest revelations from the document dump include Fauci being told Wuhan coronavirus was “potentially engineered” in a lab, show him arguing drug store masks don’t offer protection from the disease, that he frantically sent papers to colleagues about dangerous gain-of-function research and downplayed the need for a vaccine.  Publicly, Fauci was telling a different story, … Continue reading Fauci Emails Show We Should Question the ‘Science’ on Climate Change

The “Science” Mantra

By Thomas Sowell – Dec 22, 2009 – for My cmnt: Tho’ this was written twelve years ago it is as pertinent for our times as if it had been written today. Since the intelligentsia (as Sowell refers to the Liberal Elite below) decided that Darwinism would assist in the overthrow of the Biblical worldview that underpinned Western culture it has been promoted and insisted upon as science despite the nearly total absence of factual evidence in support of it and the suppression of vast amounts of evidence that contradict most of its central tenets.

The Fauci Who Cried Wolf

By Ann Coulter – Dec 8, 2021 – for My cmnt: Dr. Fraud Fauci, that diminutive troll, has been a liar and deceiver since the beginning of his long reign in public health serving as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Neither Vaccinated Nor Unvaccinated: How Churches Imposing Vaccine Mandates Are Dividing Christians With A ‘Different Gospel’

By Megan Basham – Oct 25, 2021 – for In July, New York City’s Redeemer Presbyterian — Tim Keller’s theologically conservative church, firmly embedded in the mainstream of American evangelicalism — quietly posted a statement to its website regarding service attendance: “Individuals who are fully vaccinated … are welcome to sit on the main floor of the sanctuary without social distancing and masks will be optional … Individuals who are not fully vaccinated … are welcome to sit in the balcony …” The language of the announcement was understated but the import was not — Redeemer Presbyterian had effectually segregated … Continue reading Neither Vaccinated Nor Unvaccinated: How Churches Imposing Vaccine Mandates Are Dividing Christians With A ‘Different Gospel’

Why Evolution is Different

Two Reasons Why a Bad Theory Remains Popular by Granville Sewell March 2, 2021, 6:33 AM – for Evolution News Section 5.1 appeared at Evolution News and Views ( September 2, 2014 (see also the video at 5.1 Why Evolution is Different In the current debate between Darwinism and intelligent design, the strongest argument made by Darwinists is this: in every other field of science, naturalism has been spectacularly successful, why should evolutionary biology be so different? Even most scientists who doubt the Darwinist explanation for evolution are confident that science will eventually come up with a more plausible … Continue reading Why Evolution is Different

Healthy Polar Bears and Thriving Tigers: The Common Climate Tale

Vijay Jayaraj | Posted: Dec 12, 2020 12:01 AM – for Editor’s note: this column was coauthored by Calvin Beisner.  My cmnt: I included the chart below to show that the climate always changes but man-made global warming is a scare tactic that is not happening. The climate warms and cools all the time. This is mostly due to solar activity and sunspot increase or decrease. The earth is also affected by volcanic activity. Neither of these two major contributors to climate change are under the control of man. When I was taking Western History at UNL in 1971 … Continue reading Healthy Polar Bears and Thriving Tigers: The Common Climate Tale

Dogmatic Signs – A Review of Signature in the Cell

PHILLIP E. JOHNSON NOVEMBER 10, 2010 INTELLIGENT DESIGN PUBLISHED IN TOUCHSTONE MAGAZINE For anyone who wants to understand the argument for the necessary role of intelligent design in the history of life, the indispensable source is now Stephen C. Meyers’ book Signature in the Cell (HarperOne, 2009). For cultural reasons, when arguments for the validity of Darwin’s theory of evolution have been made in the past, emphasis has often been placed on the question of human descent from ape-like ancestors. Meyers’ book, in contrast, directs attention to the scientifically most important subject: the origin of the cell and its complex molecular mechanisms. Meyers’ analysis is … Continue reading Dogmatic Signs – A Review of Signature in the Cell

IEA report shows Biden climate policies make US entirely dependent on China

from Check out how Biden climate policies (i.e., more wind, solar and EVs) would increase out dependency on China for raw materials and processing.  Here is the IEA report. Below are the two key graphs. You would think the green desire for more wind, solar and EVs would grease the skids for more domestic production of vital materials. But you would be wrong.  Check out the front-page New York Times article today on how greens are working to stop lithium production in the US.  If both Biden and the greens succeed, US national security will be entirely compromised.

Richard Dawkins Gets Canceled by the ‘Freethinkers’

By CHARLES C. W. COOK – April 20, 2021 – for National Review The American Humanist Association proves the point that transgenderism will brook no dissent. My cmnt: Oxford professor Richard Dawkins is best known as a popularizer of Darwinism and a vocal opponent of Biblical Christianity. He is an oft-quoted darling of the Left and is the first person they run to for a quick slam against conservative Christians and politicians who have the temerity of pointing out the absurdities of Darwinist claims and Leftist politically correct propaganda. My cmnt: Dawkin’s description of the God of the Old Testament is … Continue reading Richard Dawkins Gets Canceled by the ‘Freethinkers’

Hungary Cuts Taxpayer Funding To Inane Gender Studies Departments

There is an intra-academic war to control the academy, and the reason is simple: control of institutions like media and academia is essential for a social revolution. By Sumantra Maitr OCTOBER 18, 2018 – for The Federalist “Gender studies challenge existing structures that are perceived as natural and enduring, and in doing so, they directly challenge the ideological commitments of the radical right,” thundered an obscure British teaching fellow named Megan Armstrong in an op-ed for openDemocracy. Armstrong argues that Hungary’s lurch toward the right is essentially an attack on open inquiry at universities, as shown by the latest hardline move of “banning” gender studies … Continue reading Hungary Cuts Taxpayer Funding To Inane Gender Studies Departments

The conceptual penis as a social construct

My cmnt: The conceptual penis as a social construct was actually published here in Cogent Social Sciences. It was sent to these deranged Leftists as legitimate research by two writers simply wanting to demonstrate that completely off-the-wall, zany, gobbledygook is easily mistaken, even by so-called experts, for real-world science. I publish just page one here because you probably wouldn’t believe it otherwise. My cmnt: Taken from an article by By Peter W.

Some actual benefits from the Covid-19 over reaction

Covid-19: the most over-hyped, over-blown ‘pandemic’ in the history of mankind still has an upside As of today allegedly 500,000 Americans have died of Covid-19. That figure is most likely overstated by a factor of 10. In a typical flu season between 25 and 50,000 Americans die from the flu. Most of those are very young children and elderly adults. The remarkable thing about the Wuhan Flu is that children are hardly affected by it at all. According to Dr. Scott Atlas, senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and former chief of neurology at Stanford University Medical Center, “the … Continue reading Some actual benefits from the Covid-19 over reaction

By Sycophant Press – Feb 15, 2021 – from the AP Dateline: Lincoln, Neb. Democrat Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird acknowledges that the citizens of Lincoln are in for a Dark Winter echoing her mentor and spirit-guide, fake president Joseph O’Biden. “He who walks in Darkness” warned us that there would be shortages of natural gas after he closed America’s largest natural gas reservoir in the Marcellus Shale (PA & WV) – 2,836 billion cubic feet.

Ecologist Jeremy Fox at the University of Calgary offers a list of scientific frauds, with Piltdown Man at the top of the list. Writing at his blog Dynamic Ecology, he remarks, “Gonna be hard to top this one, I think.” Is it? From, “What’s the ‘greatest’ scientific fraud of all time?” Charles Dawson (it almost certainly was him) faked actual fossils rather than, say, numbers in a spreadsheet.

A Third Infinity — The Infinite Complexity of Cells

by Michael Denton – October 2, 2020, 6:47 AM – for Evolution News and Science Today Editor’s note: We are pleased to offer this excerpt from Dr. Denton’s new book, The Miracle of the Cell. In terms of compressed complexity, cells are without peer in the material world, actualized or imagined. And there is likely far more complexity still to uncover. Even as recently as 1913, when Lawrence Henderson composed his classic The Fitness of the Environment, the cell was a black box, its actual molecular complexity a mysterious unknown. Only as the veil began to lift with the mid-century … Continue reading A Third Infinity — The Infinite Complexity of Cells

Ernst Haeckel: Social Darwinist, Racist & Fraud

Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel (16 February 1834 – 9 August 1919) was a German zoologist and an strong proponent of scientific racism. He, and Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, were highly influential in promoting the idea, strong among liberal political socialists, that African people were genetically inferior and should be wiped out or at least limited in their population. Haeckel promoted and popularized Charles Darwin’s work in Germany and embraced an interpretation of Darwin’s pseudo-scientific theory of modification with descent that promoted the idea that “survival of the fittest” was a natural law that could be applied to … Continue reading Ernst Haeckel: Social Darwinist, Racist & Fraud

Darwinism: In pictures

Darwin drew a lot of criticism from his contemporaries and a fair amount of ridicule also. His fellow biologists and other scientists realized the many weaknesses in his theory and to his credit so did Darwin. His critics were mostly correct but Darwin glossed over the deficiencies in his theory rather than admit the theory simply did not correspond to the observed world. Darwin himself raised these points in his seminal work.  He recognized that they were valid objections then and unfortunately for the committed Darwinist they remain valid objections today. The first is the fossil record.  Darwin knew this … Continue reading Darwinism: In pictures

Giving Up Darwin

A fond farewell to a brilliant and beautiful theory. A review of Stephen Meyer’s thoughtful and meticulous Darwin’s Doubt (2013) By David Gelernter – in the Claremont Review of Books – Spring 2019 My cmnt: Article edited for brevity and clarity. Darwinian evolution is a brilliant and beautiful scientific theory. Once it was a daring guess. Today it is basic to the credo that defines the modern worldview. Accepting the theory as settled truth—no more subject to debate than the earth being round or the sky blue or force being mass times acceleration—certifies that you are devoutly orthodox in your scientific views; … Continue reading Giving Up Darwin

No Need to Panic About Global Warming

The Wall Street Journal OPINION JANUARY 27, 2012 No Need to Panic About Global Warming There’s no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to ‘decarbonize’ the world’s economy. My cmnt: Anyone with any real knowledge of the history of science knows that ‘scientific consensus’ is not how we settle scientific arguments.   Too many times to mention has scientific consensus been proved wrong by later discoveries.   What matters in science is demonstrable data and facts available to everyone that show some article of scientific doctrine to be correct, at least for the time being.

The Real Climate Science Deniers

Paul Driessen|Posted: May 16, 2020 12:01 AM – for Posted: May 16, 2020 12:01 AM Fifty years ago, I helped organize Earth Day #1 programs on my college campus, calling attention to serious pollution problems that afflicted much of the USA. Over the ensuing decades, laws, regulations, and changed attitudes, practices and technologies reduced most of that pollution, often dramatically. I didn’t buy into the 1970 end-is-nigh, doom-and-gloom, billions-will-die hysteria that Ron Stein and Ron Bailey summarize, including the manmade global cooling crisis. I don’t buy it today, either – certainly not this year’s Earth Day focus on the alleged manmade global warming crisis, also blamed on emissions … Continue reading The Real Climate Science Deniers

A review of “Darwin on Trial” and a response

In the July 1992 issue of  Scientific American Stephen Jay Gould wrote a scathing review of Phil Johnson’s book Darwin on Trial.  My cmnt: I have included Gould’s review, in full, below because it is hard to find without a visit to the library. He called it, Impeaching a Self-Appointed Judge, a clever take on the fact that Phillip Johnson was one of the premier law professors in the country. After unsuccessfully ignoring the book for two years, Gould finally attempted to discredit it with his nasty review, claiming the book was full of errors. Johnson wrote a detailed response–but Scientific American refused to … Continue reading A review of “Darwin on Trial” and a response

University dumps professor who found polar bears thriving despite climate change

By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Sunday, October 20, 2019 Nobody has done more to sink the claim that climate change is endangering polar bears than zoologist Susan Crockford — and she may have paid for it with her job. After 15 years as an adjunct assistant professor, Ms. Crockford said the University of Victoria rejected without explanation in May her renewal application, despite her high profile as a speaker and author stemming from her widely cited research on polar bears and dog domestication. Ms. Crockford accused officials at the Canadian university of bowing to “outside pressure,” the result of her research showing that polar … Continue reading University dumps professor who found polar bears thriving despite climate change

In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened. And not once — not even once! — have these alarmists had one of their predictions come true.
