  1. Institutionalized Ignorance

    by , 01-14-2019 at 05:13 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    A few days ago I was horrified to read the James Watson, Nobel Laureate for having discovered DNA, is being condemned for having made comments that are alleged to be racist; although there has been no inquiry into the veracity of his comments.

    Specifically, Doctor Watson is cited as having said, ďThereís a ďdifference on the average between blacks and whites on IQ tests,Ē he said. ďI would say the difference is ... genetic.Ē He also said he took no joy in his conclusion. The situation ...
  2. New Era, update

    On December 22, 2018, the seventh year of the new era began. Certainly you remember the ending of the last world, when both Mayan Calendars ended together. We started looking at the new era in comparison with the old era, and this is a report on the changes tyhat have come with the new era.

    As a whole, the new era has been worse than was the old era, but we have only had six years to judge it on, so far.

    Fundamentally, all times are similar, but Donald Trump was ...
  3. Delusion in the White House

    Maybe itís just the zeitgeist of this days, but I have noticed more and more people showing signs of delusional thinking. It isnít just a few people with schizophrenic symptoms, but even the present occupant of the Oval Office shows signs of delusional thinking. It might have been a mistake to mention schizophrenia, because not of the delusional people have that problem; although it is difficult to tell without careful observation and analysis. And while belief in conspiracy theories can indicate ...

    Now thereís a title that seems like a deliberate cry for attention. Sorry couldnít come up with anything better at the moment.
    Iím grappling with something and I figured rather than work it out on my own Iíd see if people Iíve never met in my life might want to chip in, or just skim through to get the jist of it and say nothing. Thatís fine too. I donít mind.

    So. Thereís a funeral in a few days and Iím trying to work out if I should go or not.
    Itís for my dadís aunt ...

  5. Facts Versus Myths

    Facts Versus Myths

    Once again today, I encountered someone who was unwilling to accept facts as facts and opined that facts were opinions, and that their "facts" were opinions. This is the kind of thinking that states as fact that someone turned water into wine, or some other absurdity was actually done. Such things also show up in politics, and I expect that ignorance of history together with a desire that certain things are the bases for culture lead people to decide to ...
