When antiquated ideas, e.g.. keep reproducing like hell to make sure the offspring survive to reproduce, come into conflict with reality, then usually reality wins. The Pope doesn’t have to clothe, house and feed all those wee offspring with Catholic parents, but the parents do ! Certainly in the more advanced countries most Catholics just ignore…[Read more]
Science denial , – hardly a positive attitude for the head of the EPA to have ! I think the new medical term for this disorder is Ostrichophobia, particularly to be found in and around GOP politicians in the USA.
Ostrichophobia has many similarities to a previous condition Tobaccodenialosis common among those nicotine lubricated politicians of the past.

So if I understand it correctly, the CIA is spying on the FBI and The NSA, among everyone else including GCHQ, and they and everyone else are also spying on the CIA ? Meanwhile in the world of the great unwashed, they are all spying on us, now via our ‘smart’ TVs and phones ! In Washington the new Gunslinger in Chief ties his hoss to the White…[Read more]
And don’t forget the “fiscal cliff’ that a few of Trump’s enterprises fell down !
Mr DArcy commented on the post, How Does the Public’s View of Science Go So Wrong? 2 weeks, 4 days ago
The internet has both very good stuff and masses of nonsense. You tend to sort out the chaff from the corn soon enough if you approach with a sceptical attitude. But the US mainstream media is half in love with religion and fantasy. The stereotypical ‘mad scientist’ in Jurassic Park e.g. The inconclusive endings of the X Files, always suggesting…[Read more]
Why am I reminded of Cleopatra in Shakespeare’s play, blaming the messenger for bad news ? It appears Trump’s administration would all be happier wearing Zaphod Beeblebrox shades. Sod the reality !
“Biological evolution” generates controversy ? Not in my universe. The theory of evolution by natural selection is among the strongest theories in all of science. Of course it drives a cart and horses through the old Biblical Adam and Eve story of human origins, and maybe that’s why these Christian YECs don’t like it ?
But no controversy…[Read more]

Well for once I have to agree with Pope !
It is certainly better to be an atheist than a Christian (insert religion here), of any kind !

And yet in more or less secular Britain, the House of Commons always opens its sessions with CoE prayers ! No-one takes any notice ! The price of a nationalised religion I suppose ?
Huh !You ain’t seen nothing yet ! Wait till Trump and/or his advisers pick on that highly reactive chemical dihydrous oxide ! Especially when polluted with coal dust and numerous other bi-products of industry !
Actually, Lamer and Lamer sounds like an equally good law firm ?
There’s no doubt in my mind, that most kids are pretty damn shrewd when sussing out adults. This wee girl seems to have hit the target. OK, Not difficult, a loud mouthed reactionary, but she hit the bloody target !
Oh if I could venture an answer to her questions as to what he is going to do about clean water, air etc ? Bugger all.

Bates And Smith. Hmm, to my suspicious mind , sounds like some shady firm of Lawyers trying to gain advancement on the slippery pole of politics.
The science was good, but apparently the procedures weren’t so good ?
The excuses get Lamer and Lamer.

Mr DArcy commented on the post, 10 Easy Ways You Can Tell For Yourself That The Earth Is Round 2 months ago
The “winter” stars will be still be in the sky when the Earth is in the “summer” side of its orbit. It’s just that the sun’s light prevents us from seeing them !
Just to mention one of Tump’s picks, Rick Perry, whilst Governor of Texas arranged a massive prayer meeting to pray for the Lord to send rain to drought stricken Texas. Apparently the Lord didn’t oblige and instead sent massive wild fires. Let’s just hope Rick Perry prays for global warming ?
This judge appears to have made a big mistake. I thought that in Family Law, the interest of the child comes first ? Apparently this judge thinks that denying this child the right to learn about reality, is superseded by some religious tradition based on Judaism, itself based on nonsense.
Aye the patent clerk, Einstein, used their findings to develop his own theory of special relativity.
Mr DArcy commented on the post, Richard Dawkins and Other Prominent Scientists React to Trump’s Win 4 months, 1 week ago
If Trump denies science, as he appears to, perhaps less than Mike Spence the VP elect, then the USA is heading for economic relegation. OK the USA is the most powerful country in the world, BUT not the only country. There are plenty of Asian tigers willing to assume that mantle, and not just paper tigers.
