Rational betise? ja!

November 8, 2010

In rationally speaking blog (hosted by Dr MP)-it should be speaking, rationally,-Dr MP apologized to Dr J Coyne, the bombastic owner of why evolution is true blog. For alleged diatribes, insults and disqualifications-rather common elsewhere- and in the science blogosphere more abundant than not.

This is a strange affair, i.e.: the apologies, mutual. Both Coyne and Dr P think themselves as new truth prophets, unwilling to consider difference in unsettled questions. They go monkey when somebody dares contradicts their view- actually they do not publish au contraire comments. Coyne is so adamant that lectures specialists-some heavy hitters included-on other fields, dispenses advise in boots, spirits, movies, books, places to visit: insufferable, I wonder what his contribution to humankind been, other than pontificate in a number of subjects (maybe the analysis of released labeled drosophila in the Death valley experiment). It is peculiar, this protectors’ of the truth grail stance that evolution bloggers and philosophers pretending to educate the public-actually the public gets bored with it-that without showing any substantial contribution to the field itsef, evolution in this case, go on taking everybody else as anathema. Take Dr MP or Dennett, one of the self proclaimed horsemen of the apocalypse (sic) and his insistence in “empirical philosophy”, desperate to contribute something significant to evolution and in his case, consciousness or, take Dawkins for example, another self proclaimed horsemen, : two of his papers, one in pecking order and the other on how easily distracted bees are: arghhh, wtf? and the selfish gene and memes? Rather insoluble ideas that properly vulgarized got him a position as public science disseminator (Dawkins; he comes across as utterly soft, intellectually). In any case the mutual apologies are so the zeitgeist of these miserable times. Everyone goes in a rampage, apologizes and… finito. Not really. Look at Mel-iflous Gibson, innumerable tv hosts-and guests-that go in rampages of diatribes and apologies alternatively; scientists are not different. We are all the same but not equal: I predict there it will be a flood of these fake apologies.

Maybe a response to the rally for sanity? But it cant: the rally for sanity somehow was a bust. Completely. America is moronically lethargic

Kristofs’ bananas Hitches betise

November 7, 2010

Strange title for this post: the argument of this post: striking arguments. First, Kristof at NYT: he argues we are (the US) a banana republic: the United Banana Sates.priceless, but Not so quickie Nickie boy; we have argued that for YEARS. Moreover we have begged for a discussion on the term banana republic itself,-as an end result of “markets expansion”- to put it mildly and not to say pillage of defenseless. The term “bp” used despectively by politicos-and rednecks- to highlight some nations, in a manner an end result of the policies politicos in US implement elsewhere and that now is knocking our doors. The Godfather shows a bit of the mentality in one movie of the series, What? you dont appreciate the parallel? The diference between the Mafia and some organized corporations that are icons of free enterprise is trivial: remember Enron? Wall street? BP?.
Disclaimer: I admire NK particular engagement advocating for womens “rights” and decry abuse of human female in every way throughout the landscape. . He is a decent guy, very decent. But uninformed of banana republic history. Good striking statement. Long overdue.

Hitchens writes in VF about the “discourse” between cancerees and the “public’-cancerers. Striking article: … boring. There is a decent compassionate way to treat each other or the other way I suggest reading The Wounded Healer. By the way in the Hitchens watch website there is a clip where Hitchens attacks Louis Farrakhan. It seems as if Hitchens fails to acknowledge the impact of black leaders-albeit religious- in their communities. He has done scathing comments on J. Wright and E Long, and also Dr King. I wonder how much of concealed racism (masked as anti-religious, atheist) Hitchens holds. It wouldnt suprise me he is a closeted british (brutish) imperialist (they still think the UK aristocracy owns the Universe. Granted Farrakhan is a striking character, but important 4 black communities. Maybe we wouldnt witness and “enjoy’ their antics now if slavery was not invented .
Granted Farrakhan was brutish himself, especially in his hideous remarks about jews in new york. I wonder why

McConnell, Mitch (Addison Mitchell) is he a coupmonger?

November 5, 2010

McConnell-what a disgusting looking face he is got- on what the GOP should be doing : repeal everything. or…what?

The most wasteful health system in the world??Obviously..we are the most wasteful system in the world. Period.

In “the Rules of attraction” Clifton Collins plays the drug dealer Rupert..!Rupert!!that famously asserts …Obviously..to a silly assertion of his gorilla like liuetenant (couldnt track his name back, memory loss!!!). CC has played phenomenally in all movies I have seen. Back to life: the two main battles brewing (already going) are: killing obamacare and extending tax “cults”. I see no other landscape than…. do or die…(sic)..kumbaya!!!

Late shows highlighted the orange man abundantly: the fact he cried; the fact that Pelosi had tried to cry, but she couldnt. I adore that woman. She is a force of nature.Obviously….

Let’s roll…ok, we did…palinus interruptus

I wrote this yesterday: ” It took less than 2 years for “americans” to revert to their orignal phenotype; scared by the “socialist” Obama they want revert to more “traditional” and hard core values: white supremacy, and entitlement. “WE, the people?, will repeal the obamacare bill!!! we have the best health sysytem in the world…” blabla bla…No sire, we have the wost WASTEFUL health system in the workd.
It doesnt look any better for mediocrats-and for us: the temerary rationals; I am hoping loonies dont get elected (figuratively speaking because many in the running are such: I meant the “extrovert” loonies, you kow who im talking about). My secret audacious hope: the polls that anticipate a “tidal wave” (are there other waves in the ocean??) are biased, which of course they are: I wonder if anybody has looked unto this, and how this would influence voting. Naturally, this would qualify as a conspiracy theory. Is it a conspiracy to think someting is a conspiracy? I think not.”

Today; In any case, not matter how you look at this, today, Sarah Palin lost big, Alaska Miller and else are done. Unfortunately maxiloonie Rand Paul won. He is notoriously crazy and it looks it on TV: he looks like a XIX century french novel chracater going mad. And the orange majority leader cried on tv; are they all whimps? man up mr citric, man up palin!!

In a diffrent note but in the same set of negative zeitgeist; the media “analysts” insist we had a “close call” with the toner bomb and else. Dont we fight terrorirsm with intelligence (from saudi arabia and yemen in this case)?. Granted threat detection is not easier but intelligence seems to work as efficiently as for the Mossad or for Simon Wiesenthal who did a superb job finidng and kidnapping nazi “war criminals” (arent all nazis war criminals?). Nobody cares about the faulty logic of the “analysts”, o lets hope they keep making the mistake and intelligence working.
