Muddy Monday

The mud is all in my head, as in muddied thoughts with no clear direction. I wasn’t going to post today, but OCD.


Here are links to three posts from Why Evolution Is True:


More ideological bias: the National Science Foundation gives grants for people to document what the NSF already claims to know

Sundance and others cancel a talented filmmaker for “Islamophobia” and “white saviorism”

The DART mission: A U.S. spacecraft will hit an asteroid this evening (7:14 EDT), trying to change its orbit

You’ll never see this story reported in the mainstream media. I do not know how much validity these claims have because I am not a scientist. However, neither are Schmocasio Schmortez, Theta Grunberg or GoreAl.

I firmly believe that the push to “Carbon Zero” is based at least as much on the old socialist/communist agendas of redistributing wealth and income and establishing firm governmental control over individuals as it is on environmental concerns. When I see how much of this so-called policy is based on punishment and not problem-solving, I can’t help conclude otherwise.

I wonder how many people call for a quote on a car like this:
