October 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

Still more crimes against humanity…//Mr. Toxicity Zaps America

October 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

America’s all-time-leading heartless anti-science zealot EPA Administrator Scott “Mr. Toxicity” Pruitt, as of March 2017, nixed his own agency’s proposal of 2015 to ban the toxic chemical chlorpyrifos, an insecticide that attacks the nervous system of pesky insects, as well as pesky and non-pesky people (the Nazis invented it for germ warfare). It’s sprayed on crops of foodstuff that ends up in grocery stores.

R48G: the eonic effect and the mystery of the ‘Gaian’ evolution

October 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

The eonic model ironically resolves the issue of historical theories by applying a kind of sequential/parallel grid matrix and this suggests that after so much futile effort to find a theory of history the reason for the failure lies in the implications of this grid matrix. By ‘grid matrix’ we refer to the way that discontinuity applies both sequentially and laterally producing a long range sequence and a set of synchronous effects, a sort of mini-multiverse effect (metaphor only).

Darwinism: taking micro as macroevolution

October 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

http://history-and-evolution.com/whee4th/chap2_2_3.htm
The confusion over evolution can’t be resolved until we adopt a distinction of ‘macroevolution’ and ‘microevolution’. Strictly speaking this is a kind of ‘category’ distinction that applies to different versions of ‘evolution’, and the ‘macro effect’ demonstrable in world history is grim reminder of just how far off darwinism is: it takes natural selection as macro when at most it is micro and the result is hopelessly confusing. Punctuated equilibrium has suffered the same fate, having been turned into micro process when it could only be macro.

science flunks the free will question…?//Dawkins and Krauss on free will « Why Evolution Is True

October 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

Science as we know it suffers a major failing: the inability to resolve the issue of free will. You would the thinking of Kant and Schopenhauer might be at least considered. But such thinkers are banned from the discussion in the rigid mindset of so-called scientists.
Is that unfair? Perhaps, because the problem itself is probably beyond solution in closed form. The question of free will is not the same as the question of will! In fact the real psychology of man is beyond the range of current science. The debate goes on and on, and that is evidence of its antinomial character. The issue of behaviorism looms: without free will man is a diminished robot. There is another dimension to the discussion: free will is potential and man must ‘realize his will’….
