  2. And the Winner Will Be

    by , 10-16-2019 at 01:58 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Itís too early to predict a winner in the 2020 presidential election with much confidence, but a few things have happened recently that provide some reasonable ideas. Yesterday, the Dems had another debate, and the alleged pundits think that Elizabeth Warren came off the winner, and Biden was in second. I get the impression that Sanders is seen as falling, and the munchkins remained munchkins. That situation probably will remain for some time, and it will turn into a two person race, except that ...

    I frequently wonder about those silly Earthlings. Most of them Have serious problems with science, math, mathematics, and logic. How did they manage to develop anything even vaguely like civilization? But I haven't been able to figure out why they have such problems. But I haven't been able to figure out why. Is it herd mentality (which would be an inborn tendency) that makes them believe without question anyone who is said to be an authority, or what, but most humans seem to have a need to agree ...
  5. Carbon Dioxide Red Herring

    by , 09-27-2019 at 09:11 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I find it annoying to read or hear assertions that human activity is causing climate change especially when the people making the assertions never even heard of the Milkovitch cycles and donít even know what makes some gases "greenhouse gases" while other gases do not create the greenhouse effect. Many articles on the subject give the impression the the author does not understand what he is writing.

    One item that is less prevalent now than it was a few years ago is the ...
