“Actually, he’s not entirely wrong.”The guy embodies all the worst of the SSPX/Axis of Rad nastiness… and yet you find yourself thinking “These lightweight suburbanites could do with a little gravitas too.”Finally, thought it put me in mind of the Prophet Chesterton (but then you knew I’d say that). A reading from Ye Booke of The Everlasting Man:We have all heard people say a hundred times over, for they seem never to tire of saying it, that the Jesus of… Read more

…is that the same people who tend to buy this hogwash are major enthusiasts for self-extinction. Here, for instance, is somebody named Steven Kotler, author of West of Jesus: Surfing, Science and the Origins of Belief, offering his impassioned plea (which will only be heard by other ZPG ninnies like himself), for a five year ban on children.Darwin Catholic has a succinct summary of the fruits of this kind of thinking: “Because most philosophies that frown on reproduction don’t survive.”Now… Read more

US Govt data it says that while humans are responsible for 5.53% of all greenhouse gases, we are responsible for on 0.28% of the greenhouse effect. Talking about “climate change” is like talking about “tonal variation in music”. Change is what climate *does*.
