Mukherjee’s The Gene

July 31st, 2016 · No Comments

Actually, it […]

Erdogan is a dangerous lunatic who will destroy Turkey (and finally Islam)

July 31st, 2016 · No Comments

https://www.google.com/search?q=erdogan&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=erdogan&tbm=nws It is horrific to watch what is going on in Turkey. And I don’t accept that it is none of my business as an outsider. I am not an outsider, but a global citizen to whom it is becoming obvious that Islam is undoing clarity, to say the least, about cultural choices and progress. […]

Was Sanders set up to set the left up? Mind control’s hidden perps, by no means a jewish supremacist monopoly…

Gorz’ dated but cogent Farewell to the Working Class

July 30th, 2016 · No Comments

Groz’ Farewell to the Working Class Although it wasn’t connected to my approach to the Universal Class in Last and First Men, Gorz’ point is well taken, and it is also the case that it seems less radically alarming than it did at the time. The book is dated now. So what if the working […]

Poetry, dance, music in evolutionary emergence

July 30th, 2016 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2016/07/30/can-poetry-matter-91-05/ One of the disastrous effects of standard darwinian evolutionism is the low-ball perspective of bootstrap reductionism that is mechanical, value-free and random. A close look at the ‘macro’ effect in its various versions ( history and evolution.com) shows the direct hyper-programming of linguistic, artistic, and many other ‘higher’ cultural factors, with a lost of […]
