And as author Marcus Woo posits, that’s often more enlightening than when they are right. But faux science can be extremely damaging. Consider the “science” of global warming, which has repeatedly been proven wrong, rigged, and corrupt. Yet progressives, desperate to control the masses, cling to it in an attempt to make their peculiar religion a reason to control us. Until an experiment has been successfully and fairly replicated, the theory being tested is just a theory. The trouble arises when the corrupt and unethical present theory as proven fact.
Avijit Roy, a Bangladesh-born U.S. citizen and a prominent blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death as he walked through Bangladesh’s capital with his wife, Rafida Ahmed, who was seriously injured. They were walking on a crowded sidewalk, returning from a book fair at Dhaka University.
A previously unknown militant group, Ansar Bangla 7, has claimed responsibility for the attack. This is the latest in a series of attacks on secular writers in Bangladesh in recent years. Even Hindus are not safe from militant Islam.
UPDATE: “Religious extremism is a virus.” That’s the sort of truth Avijit Roy used.
I was aware of Leonard Nimoy before he became Dr. Spock, simply because I had seen him in other series. He was a talented actor, and one with other creative outlets which seem to have maintained his interest in life.
UPDATE: The interesting history behind the Vulcan sign.
Not a mobile home on wheels, mind you, but a 1,200 square foot house last seen sitting on its foundation in a rural area of Klamath County, Oregon. Did a thief just come along and disassemble the building? Color me perplexed.
I had not heard about this ambitious project to dump decommissioned subway cars into the ocean to provide habitat for sea critters. We have known for many years that sea life is drawn to wrecked ships, and smaller projects using cars and tires have proven successful, but this effort is drawing new species to areas where they could not live before.
Raise your hand if you’re surprised that wholly unqualified Supreme Court Justice Kagan made reference to Dr. Seuss during a case before the court. Of course, His Oneness selected her because she was Latina, reliably progressive, and can not imagine anything the federal government does being classified as overreach.
Yes, Bill O’Reilly is cantankerous and a bit arrogant, but he’s not stupid. Everyone who works at FOX knows that MSM and the usual progressive gnomes are ever vigilant for any of them to make the slightest mistake, and that when few are found, things are simply made up. It can’t be pleasant for FOX to continually beat your brains out on viewership, ratings, and profitability.
O’Reilly is just the most convenient target because he evokes such a powerful response.
