Merry Christmas everyone.

Normal blogging will resume shortly.

comment spam filtering

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Spam bots tend to behave differently from genuine commenters using standard browsers. Thus my web site rejects any comments coming from a browser that behaves in an unusual fashion. If, for privacy or security reasons, you have your browser set to behave in an unusual fashion, your attempt to comment may well fail. If you cannot comment, try using another browser to let me know about the problem. Similarly if you encounter those accursed captcha tests. Use another browser, or sacrifice some privacy.

Merry Christmas

There is a reason that the United States, the most Christian nation in the world, is also the most free nation in the world.

And that reason is that of all the deadly superstitions that infest the world, Christianity is the least murderous, the least oppressive, fosters the least hatred and envy, and is responsible for fewer wars and mass murders than any religion of comparable size.

And the comparative decency of this belief system is best displayed in the Christmas celebration, where people genuinely wish each other a merry Christmas, for Christmas is not a merely a Christian celebration, but a celebration in which Christians wish good to all men, and invite all men to join in the celebration.  And I recommend that you should join in, whether you believe or not.  This is a time to be be merry, to be with family, and to catch up on what far flung family members have been up to.

When a man ceases to believe in God, the most likely result is not that he will believe nothing without evidence, but that he will believe anything that seems to show the universe caring.  Those who will not believe in God, are apt to believe in the power of crystals, their horoscope, in ghosts, spirits and angels, in Anthropogenic Global Warming, in Gaia, the cycle of life, in mystics, and in anything else that is apt to make it seem that the universe cares.

The universe does not care, but men do care.  The world has no meaning, but man gives it meaning.  I care.  Merry Christmas.

Blog empty due to crash and move to new host.

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

My previous host (Servers and Domains) crashed on me, and despite considerable passage of time, are still down.

As a result many articles are missing

I hope to recover nearly all of them in the next couple of days.  Recovering comments will take a little longer.

I apologize for the inconvenience – and for my failure to keep adequate backups.

Genocidal famine still planned

At present, Environmental Protection Agency rules require that that Americans convert food that could feed five hundred million people into fuel. But this is not enough. The rules require that it be increased five fold over the next fifteen years.
