Random News

Here's a bunch o' stuff for ya.

Parents stopped from forcing Texas teen to have abortion
Examine this one with parental rights in mind. What is your conclusion? (Just for clarification, I'm certain that ADF acted in the only manner appropriate.)

Mich. woman accused of civil rights violation for seeking Christian roommate at church
So why can't I go join an "Indian gaming" casino then? Oh wait, I'm not "Indian".... I'm not bothered. This is tyranny, plain and simple.

What about IVF?
Good point!

Man fired for Bush sweatshirt at Obama rally
Not a Bush presidential sweatshirt, a USS Bush NAVY sweatshirt. Is the Navy or Armed Forces upsetting to Obama and his cronies?

Obama - Republicans 'Gotta Sit In The Back'
Not me. One, I ain't Republican, two, I wouldn't come to one of your parties.

ObamaCare: Doctors Will be Fined or Jailed if they Put Patients First
I'd like to see some more information on this one honestly, but I expected exactly this, so am not suprised.

Fermilab is Building a 'Holometer' to Determine Once and For All Whether Reality Is Just an Illusion
Oh now come on. Theoretical physicists run amok again! I'm all for deep research in physics or any other discipline, but this is going too far. The third dimension isn't real? Then, what is real? Smells more like humanistic philosophy to me.

Batman 3 news!!!
Not all good news, either, IMO....

Welcome the Newest Member of the McKay Family and AoM Team: Augustus George McKay
Yay for babies!

"Spirit Day" - Wear purple today to condone sodomites

I hate purple (it's far too feminine). They must be using this purple thing because they love purple and green together. You know, to me, purple and green is The Joker....



I don't get it. This means that purple and green exemplifies a moral void, utter evil, and all that is despicable. Hey, wait a minute....

WARSKYL: Unprofitable Home Defense, 7

Gravelbelly's best in the series yet, I'm tempted to state. See this portion:


Let's look at the question of "Christian liberty" from a purely physical perspective. Say that you go with your friend to pick up his child at a day care center. (Why the child is in day care rather than at home is another issue, but for the sake of argument, let's just say it's this way.)

As you go in with your friend, you notice the strong smell of feces as children play on a filthy carpet. Exposed electrical wires protrude from a wall not far from the corner where you spy rodent droppings. Asbestos insulation lies fallen under exposed heat pipes within the reach of children, and you suspect that the old paint flaking from woodwork may be lead-based.

Your friend seems oblivious to the dangers. So, do you warn him, or do you keep your mouth shut rather than say something potentially harmful to his Christian liberty as a parent?

It seems to me that a parent who loved his child and simply did not know of the dangers would want you to warn him. A parent who disregards or takes offense at your warning either does not love his child or lives in a state of denial.



Now there is a question....

Documentary Review: Silence of the Bees



This hour-long PBS Nature documentary is, as usual, high-quality and well-done.

It deals with Colony Collapse Disorder, something that is still unsolved several years after this documentary's release. CCD, all at once unexpected, unexplained, and unsolved, is taking a toll on honey bees (Apis mellifera) worldwide, and it it isn't stopped, and soon, the human race itself is going to be in for some tough times, to say the least.

Silence of the Bees covers the issue with a high level of information, good, relevant footage, and with proper entertainment value. From the beekeeping industry and it's first issues, to the other dangers plaguing bees (parasites such as Varroa destructor and Nosema ceranae, pesticides, Israel Acute Paralysis Virus, or IAPV, and overwork, globalization, etc.). For an hour program, this was a good overview of the problem. (My one quibble with this show was the segment on the Chinese bee industry; it didn't mention any of the ugly problems).

If you aren't willing to spend much time on CCD but still want to know what is going on (you really should be paying attention), then watch this documentary. It's a good one.

So...what do you think about starting a blog donation pool around here? ;-P

Urgent Prayer Request

I cannot say who, but a friend of mine is very sick and is in need of prayer. I have full confidence in their recovery, but prayer is still a necessary thing, for any time. Please, pray. Pray harder than you might for me.

Artificial Wombs: The Stuff of Science Fiction?, 2

Here I'm going to illustrate that some science fiction is well beyond the Star Wars-esque pointlessness that it is all so often discounted as.

See these two clips, from Gattaca, and from The Matrix. Gattaca was an excellent film (barring an inferred sex scene, although not shown) and is one of the most timely sci-fi movies you can watch right about now. The Matrix, I already gave my thoughts on here. It's possibly the most visually stunning film trilogy ever created, but a single sex scene in the second film as well as the increasing amount sacrilegious touches by the third film as well as an overarching framework of false religious overtones makes me officially state a thumbs-down.

Still, check out these clips to see that, sometimes, science fiction thinkers beat the "real" thinkers.

Spencer

Artificial Wombs: The Stuff of Science Fiction?

No, the stuff of reality. Doug Phillips's words may smack of science fiction and make you think of The Matrix or Gattaca, but it's reality, here and now. (This is also the main reason I sometimes dabble in science fiction.)

Please read, and watch.

ADF: Federal judge orders ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ injunction

Beyond the obviously disastrous nature of this one event, I say it's time these demigod-judges had their reigns of terror ended.

Warskyl:The New, New Army: Home for Perverts?

Thinking about enlisting? You might want to take a look at this.

We can only pray that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" does not go the way of our enemies. But, in the end, I'm afraid that even then it would only be a delay of the inevitable.

It pains me more than I can say to see what is happening to our military. It really does.

Things I am Not, or, Wherein I Am Consistently Stereotyped

For the information of the world:

1 - I am NOT a basketball player. Just because I'm unusually tall does not mean I've chosen to spend my valuable time in utter waste. Maybe you're short; do you play miniature Golf? How about Monopoly? No? May I suggest playing Clue-less? The next time I get this, I'm going to ram said person's teeth into their small intestine. (Or wait, I know! I'll say next time, as long as he's male, "No, I practice self-defense and martial arts. Now since you've annoyed me so, may I ask your permission to try this method I once learned call the grab and rip?")

2 - I am NOT a "computer geek". Just because I wear glasses and am a white guy who doesn't have tattoos or a mohawk does not mean that I debauch myself with machines and electronics anymore than I already have to. True, a progression is natural and desirable, and man will always seek to best his own creations, but the current state of our world and our reliance on whatever new Jobsian trinket is on the market disgusts me to no end. Why have I been getting this one so much lately?

3 - This one I get less, but I do get it occasionally. I am NOT Mormon! People who might see me not in all black can say this (opposed to the fear and arm's-length treatment I get when I do wear it; the older people occasionally think I'm Goth, but the younger generations know that I'm not--instead, I befuddle them so, and they fail to satisfactorily classify me), or who see me as an unusual or religious young man, or (almost always) when they discover the horrific and shocking fact that I actually want a few children someday. A month or two back, this woman I have never met stops me and proclaims loudly, "You look familiar!" She stops to think intently, then a light goes on in her head (or not, depending on how you look at it). "I know! Are you Mormon?" she asks. "You look just like one of those guys that comes to my house!"

Seriously, what's with this look thing? Heck yes, I know stereotyping can work to amazing effect (try it one type, in a non-negative way, the test the person; you'll be interested at what you come up with), but come on, do I give any indication of any of these groups? Just how stupid are people today?

Next time I'm out and about, maybe I'll go up to a black man and ask, "Hey man, are you a gang-banger?"

Is this fair? Proper? Respectable? Acceptable?

I sez...nope. (But mostly, it's massively annoying, particularly the part where my smiling face feels like a plastic Barbie doll's....)

What more proof do you need?

It is now reasonable to assume Obama does not think very highly of the Bible, Christianity, and even Jesus himself.

Hey, wait a minute. Is this more of that right-wing propaganda that I throw around on these pages? Wait...there's a video of Obama...saying what?

This begs the question, why does he claim the Christian faith now? Is he sincere, or insincere (as this video would suggest)? If insincere, then what are his reasons to lie to the American public?

Watch, and think, friends.
