I have tried to hedge with Sanders but nonetheless tried to be critical of his framing of ‘revolution’ around the at best FDR-New Dealism, if that much. The result I predict will be a bust, but since I can’t quite figure his strategy (for all I know his fake talk of ‘revolution’ could trigger the real thing) I can only warn that if you use the term ‘revolution’ a note comes due at some point to deliver or else you are fart gas out of the backside of the Edouard Bernsteins.

Vast swaths of our planet are becoming literally too hot and dry to survive in. This past spring, the city of Nawabshah in southern Pakistan, recorded a high of 122.4° Fahrenheit, the highest temperature ever registered anywhere on Earth for the month of April. The contiguous United States had its hottest month of May, and the third-hottest month of June. Wildfires raged in the Arctic as northern Europe grappled with near-record heat, and at least 86 people died in Japan as triple-digit temperatures baked the country. A recent analysis of climate trends in some of South Asia’s biggest cities found that temperatures will be so high by the end of the century that people directly exposed to such heat will not be able to survive. Already, daytime heat is extreme enough to kill people who are forced to work outdoors in many parts of the world, and wreaks havoc on the health and livelihoods of tens of millions each year.
I consider myself a secularist and have written dozens of posts at my blogs to prove the point as harsh critic of ‘religion’, whatever that is.
But in the end science groupies are almost as idiotic as religious types and the fact remains, btw, that those horrid fundies at the the
Discotute have found and codifid all the problems with darwinism and simply laugh in the face of those who think that science has a solid method that is free of ideology.Biologists are simply incapable it seems of clarifying their mistakes in evolutionary theory. And they have brainwashed millions in the process here. Some science…
Where that leaves the science religion debate is not clear but the whole game should be seen as slapstick at this point.
The ancient subject of materialist Samkhya and its upgraded version in works of such as Bennett in the Dramatic Universe show that behind the degraded idiocies of monotheism (we should simply drop the term religion) the ‘spiritual’ and scientific impulse is the same in both cases. Conventional cannot unlock thy mystery of human psychology understood centuries ago and if we examine the ‘science’ here at the level of Psychology Today we discover primitive idiots of the worst kind…
As the West becomes more and more secular, and the discoveries of evolutionary biology and cosmology shrink the boundaries of faith, the claims that science and religion are compatible grow louder. If you’re a believer who doesn’t want to seem anti-science, what can you do? You must argue that your faith – or any faith – is perfectly compatible with science.
Incoming speaker creates climate committee with limited powers—undermining a far more ambitious initiative.
A week into the 2018 UN climate change conference convened in Poland, The New York Times’ quote of the day reads: “The biggest threats to the planet are the lack of U.S. climate leadership at home and the unwillingness of the U.S.
