  1. Ignorance Over All Else

    by , 06-21-2022 at 04:46 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I was going to write about the predilection of people in scientific positions to ignore facts and follow things that were common beliefs before the science was discovered. Then I saw a column from the Boston Globe regarding a push to change the name of George Washington University, because George Washington had owned slaves, and that reminded me of the move by ignorant bigots to give “reparations” to people whose ancestors may have been slaves.

    I understand the disapproval of slavery, ...
  2. Sustainable population

    by , 06-04-2022 at 09:29 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    In addition to the pressure on farmland by the rising population, the amount of arable land that could be lost to oceans as sea level rises with further global warming is huge, and low-lying lands are some of the most fertile.
    If all glacial ice melted, then it is estimated that sea level would rise 230 feet. Since the last glacial maximum, sea level has risen about 400 feet, but different sources give a variety of figures. It has been estimated that sea level will rise by about twenty feet ...

    Recently, I have experienced people complaining in ineffective ways.

    ‘It is you who should see the sun. Can spectacles and the sun see for you? You yourself have to see your true nature. Not much aid is required for doing it!’

  5. Hate speech, hate cults.

    So it comes to my attention that a cult by the title of "Gnosticism" exists; which is essentially very evil. The main thing that they do is always try to get power for the sake of power -- an inner circle or what not exists, and among the main tenets is that "Women do not deserve life," and so such a psychotic thing exists because of the "Gospel of Thomas" which is Apocrypha, and they go around preaching their bullsh*t. At all costs this should be eradicated and with ...
