Dumbed down science


2016-05-28 dumbing down

My conversations on sex and gender are getting more and more bizarre. People are sending me notes about basic biology and links to news items on the politics. How is one supposed to respond to that? Explain yet again that the biology is NOT the question or that might does not make right? Read more of this post

“Scientific” gender diversity

I had a conversation with a couple of scientists a few months ago that I still cannot get over.
They are both biologists by training. She left the field of scientific research decades ago, but he is a world renown geneticist, head of a research lab. They are both, also, left-liberals.

The pedophilia of politics

I was sitting in the living room of a friend, a Hungarian immigrant artist, surrounded by her impeccably leftist artist friends.
She had a serious question for them. She had to introduce it. She found it necessary to emphasize her honesty and genuine desire to get an honest answer to a question that truly troubled her.

Taxes are worse than theft


2016-03-28 Taxation is the problem

I just wrote two posts that seem to contradict the title of this one.
In the first one, I made the point that the state can harm our financial well being in many ways and taxation is not the worst. Focusing on it is short-sighted.
In the second, I exposed the intellectual laziness of the attacks on taxation, pointing out that the real target should be the enablers of those taxes.

Another police shooting in Toronto.
I learned about it from CP24.
Tag line below the announcer’s picture:
THE VICTIM WAS ARMED
The announcer: The victim was armed with what appeared to be a gun.

The care bear stare

Someone sent a link to me to this video: Human rights travesty, then a day later, with an approving comment, she forwarded to me the following reply she got from a friend:

“He’s clever, and though it’s exaggerated, he’s saying what we all know is approximately true — but he’s leaving a lot out too, like alternatives.  Read more of this post

r/K selection theory – the work ahead


2016-02-07-2.jpg

My previous post on the subject was extolling the virtues of the theory and the book explaining it; in this one I will talk about the gaps in it. While the value of the theory and the reliability of the evidence supporting it is beyond doubt, there are many questions in need of further answers and explanations. It is a new theory, especially as applied to political ideologies and attitudes. The ‘gaps’ in it are just unanswered or not fully explored questions.
