Oh goody! Mike Flynn has begun a new series of cool teaching!

Last year, it was his epic account of the Great Ptolemaic Smackdown, replete with juicy and fascinating sciencey stuff, history stuff, and theology stuff.  I keep hoping he will publish it as a book somewhere. And this year? Prompted by one too many Stupid Atheist Tricks from internet atheists who prefer worshipping the intellect to [Read More...]

Prophecies from 1986

Back before it was called “global climate disruption”, “global climate change”, or even “global warming” it was called the greenhouse effect and we were all assured 2000 was going to inaugurate the environmental Judgment Day: The conclusion, conveyed with great authority by several big-league climatologists from government and private research organizations, is terrible: by the [Read More...]

Stay Out of the Trees!

Goofiness from the creators of “The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra”. [Read more...]

The Transparent Lies of our Most Transparent Administration

Don’t think of it as a coincidence.  Think of it as the first miracle toward Obama’s canonization. [Read more...]

Chesterton: Still Fresh as a Daisy

‘The eugenical opportunity I have described is but an ultimate analysis of a whole drift of thoughts in the type of man who does not analyse his thoughts. He sees a slouching tramp, with a sick wife and a string of rickety children, and honestly wonders what he can do with them. But prosperity does [Read More...]

Apples and Oranges

Actually, you do. They are called “priests” and they offer the sacrament of anointing, often to great–and completely unsung–effect because God tends to be pretty quiet about asking for credit. Totally different thing from psychic BS, which all about the normal quadrifecta of getting money, power, pleasure and honor. [Read more...]

I keep hearing complaints about Common Core Math

Makes perfect sense to me! [Read more...]

So. Wrong. Mustn’t. Laugh!

Mother Blows Nose

“The most terrifying and hilarious horror comedy of the summer! An emotional roller coaster of fear and delight! Two enthusiastic thumbs up!” [Read more...]

I love Steve Ray

A good man, a good friend, and the salt of the earth. The man is fearless. There aren’t many people I can confidently say would go to their tortured death shouting the Creed and praying for his murderers (and certainly not me, who you will probably find curled in a fetal position). But Steve Ray [Read More...]

The Assumption of Mary

…is being celebrated over at the Register by Yr. Obdt. Svt. [Read more...]

Greatest Salesman Evar!

Salesmanship as Performance Art: I’d pay the guy for the show even if I didn’t buy anything. [Read more...]

Nixon Steps in to Rein in Warrior Cops

(Now there’s a headline that would have sounded weird 40 years ago.) Here’s what’s happening: FERGUSON, Mo. — Suddenly, everything has changed. The heavy riot armor, the SWAT trucks with sniper posts, the hostile glares: tonight in Ferguson they were gone. A stunning change in tone radiated through the suburban streets where protests had turned [Read More...]

Conflicting Gun Violence Narratives

So, a couple of years ago, the jiu jitsu on the Right about gun violence against blacks was the standard “We need more guns” panacaea that always comes from Gun Culture.  Here’s the inimitable Ann Coulter issuing the standard party line: All would be well if black people went around armed to the teeth, ready [Read More...]

France, Australia, even Syria are opening the doors to Iraqi refugees

But still the Obama Administration is doing nothing to give asylum to the desperate refugee population that the US, more than any country in the world, is responsible for creating. I hear the president is having a very restful vacation. [Read more...]

When did Missouri become an Iron Curtain Country?

News crew tear gassed and their equipment dismantled. What’s interesting and creepy (to me as a blogger) is that as real journalists are harrassed and intimidated and arrested by the Glorious Democratic Police Army of Ferguson, the reportage depends on private citizen with cellphone, Twitter and Youtube. The problem is that a lot of this [Read More...]

Weaponized Goon Police in Ferguson, MO

…protect the living daylights out of reporters and journalists who were typing very, very dangerously When our police state decides you are allowed to know what they are doing, selected State Information Agents will be permitted to repeat what they are told. Go back to your TV and shopping. Nothing to see here. Move along. [Read more...]

The American Conservative on the latest bushwah…

…from the now completely incredible war party spokesmen McCain, Graham, and King, who again want to plunge the US into war in Iraq: If ISIS’ gains are truly an “existential threat” to the republic and our cities are about to “go up in flames,” why did these Republican hawks not demand that President Obama call [Read More...]

Tom McDonald, who can read my very soul, thought I’d like this
