Mummy, Where Did Sex Come From? By Peter West

     You do not hear much about the issues of evolution and God nowadays from Christians. This could be because Christians have learnt their lesson to keep real quiet and maybe scientists like Richard Dawkins will go quiet and leave them in peace, so the Church can go about its contemporary mission to recruit migrants to put bums on seats. However, time to time one comes across articles raising issues Christians should be squawking about, but who generally lack the courage, intellect, and education, to address. How about the question of the origin of sex, which seems to defy the natural selection of random genetic mutations mechanism:
  http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/15/evolutionists-defend-their-own-creation-story/

“Why is evolutionary sex so threatening that it dare not even be mentioned in textbooks or science classes? Given the unique nature of gendered, sexual meiosis compared with non-gendered, asexual mitosis, the first-ever generation of sexual reproduction would have required 1) a never-before-seen male organism and a novel female organism, 2) magically having compatible chromosomes, and 3) a death-defying process of precisely halving their chromosomes, mixing them together in a revolutionary way, and then recombining to produce, not a clone (as in asexual replication), but a unique offspring unlike any on the planet. Not to mention the minor details of geographic proximity and an evolved instinct to mate—all absolutely required in round one of sex to get the sexual ball rolling.

There Goes Tasmania! By Peter Ewer

     Do we ever get any good news anymore? Certainly if I had some I would share it, just like if I had a packet of boiled sweets, I would give you one, being extraordinarily generous.  But, alas, there goes Tasmania:

“A proposed mega-development on Tasmania’s east coast has prompted concerns about fast-tracked development and foreign investment in the island state. The Cambria Green proposal was announced to the public in late April, four days before a local council meeting which voted to progress an application to create a special development zone that could house 550 accommodation units and hotel rooms, two golf courses, and an 80-bed health spa that could one day be used as a palliative care unit. The proponent, Cambria Green Agricultural Tourism Management, helmed by Shandong businessman Liu Kejing and Melbourne-based Ronald Hu, says on its Facebook page — it does not have a website — that it wants to “bring the surrounding community along our long-term journey” to support the “integrated, eco-tourism development”.

Letter to The Editor - Innocent Bystander Lynched

     I live in SE Queensland. Yesterday the surface air temperature rose from a frosty 2ºC at sunrise to a balmy 22ºC in mid-afternoon. The enormous heat needed to achieve this 20ºC of warming came via radiation from the sun. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere plays no significant part in this daily heating event – in fact it may intercept a tiny proportion of the incoming solar radiation and re-radiate it in all directions, thus keeping the daytime surface temperature a tiny bit cooler than it would have been otherwise.

     At the deep Mount Isa Mine in NW Queensland, the surface temperature may average about 25ºC but it increases by about 1ºC every 50 metres of depth – rock walls are red hot in places. The enormous heat causing this comes via conduction from Earth’s geothermal heat plus some oxidation and heating of the sulphide ores as they come in contact with natural air containing oxygen. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere plays no part in this heating.

Letter to The Editor - Weather, Carbon Dioxide and Climate Change

There are three big drivers of weather for any place on Earth – the latitude, the local environment and solar system cycles.

The biggest weather factor is latitude – are you in the torrid, temperate or frigid zone? These climatic zones are defined by the intensity of heat delivered to Earth’s surface by the sun.

In the Torrid Zone the sun is always high in the sky. It is generally hot, often moist, with low atmospheric pressure, muggy conditions and abundant rain and storms, some severe. Places close to the Equator get two summers per year (just one long summer) and very little winter. Further from the equator there are two seasons - “The Wet” and “The Dry”. The Torrid Zone produces many equatorial rain forests but also contains some deserts. Most people dream of vacations or retirement in the warm zone.

The Temperate Zone is cooler with more distinct seasons and sometimes severe droughts and floods. The granaries of the world lie within it. But the belt of sub-tropical high pressure zones also produces most of the world’s great deserts.

Letter to The Editor - The Forecasts will Fail, The Cold will Prevail, King Coal will be Crowned Again

The Forecasts will Fail,
The Cold will Prevail,
King Coal will be Crowned Again.

“Unless we stop using coal
And force green energy goals,
The ice sheets will melt
Big droughts will be felt
And islands will sink in a hole.”

But the sun refused to conform
And blizzards became the new norm.
Green energy failed
The warmists were nailed
And King Coal he grew strong in the storms.

March for Science? They’re Joking, Right? By Brian Simpson

     Incredible, isn’t it, the inconsistencies in the Left? With Trump illegally bombing Syria, supported by the media and the establishment, one would have thought that the anti-war Left would be screaming in rage. But, no, nothing much at all. Yet there are still marches to support climate change “action”  and global warming “science” by the Left and LGBT activists, although it is not clear why specifically global warming is a gender issue; doesn’t it affect everybody?

Gas, Gas and More Gas: What is Wrong with this Picture? By Brian Simpson

     I teach maths and physics, so I did not notice this at first, but my friend who teaches year 12 chemistry pointed this out:
  https://www.rt.com/news/423627-russian-military-checks-chemical-douma/ 

     Have a close look at this photo of an allegedly gassed child being washed by a medico. Notice that no gloves or protective clothing are on the person washing. The gas is super-toxic, and the washer would be contaminated. Yet, he washers away as if it is Saturday night in the bathhouse. Something is very wrong with this picture. Last April Syria allegedly used sarin nerve gas, and the workers washed away without protective gear as well. Now, bets are being hedged that chlorine may be the gas instead:

Another Near Miss By Brian Simpson

     I don’t know about you but I often lay awake at night worrying about asteroid strikes. This madness happened when I was driving in the country on a hill, and a meteorite  passed about 100 feet or so in front of my car, then completely disintegrated in a shower of sparks the valley below.  I stopped the car, heart pounding because this was a near-miss from the cosmos, and these things are always dismissed by science types as too improbable to worry about. Sure. It almost happened.
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/150-foot-asteroid-skims-by-earth-at-eerily-close-distance_04162018

“Just hours after being spotted, a 150-foot asteroid skimmed by Earth dangerously close. Astronomers spotted the asteroid on April 15, and not long later, passed by the globe at a distance of 119,500 miles. Astronomers named Asteroid 2018 GE3, was closest to Earth at around 2.41 a.m. ET on April 15 when it was spotted about 119,500 miles away. EarthSky.org reported that that’s much closer than the moon, which orbits Earth at an average distance of 238,900 miles. GE3 also passed close to the moon later that morning on its journey around the sun. Asteroid 2018 GE3, an Apollo-type earth-crossing asteroid, was flying through space at 66,174 miles per hour (106,497 km/h)."

Get Ready for a Mad Max Apocalyptic World Down Your Street any Day Now! By John Steele

     What! Has the ALoR survivalist nutjob finally lost the last bit of sanity he had? Yes, most definitely. But, Consider:
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/syrian-conflict-australia-could-run-out-of-fuel-in-43-days-would-be-mad-max-world_04162018

“Australia is at risk of running out of fuel in the next few weeks due to the ongoing conflict in Syria. The escalating situation in the war-torn country threatens to cripple the supply chains that keep Australia going. While the International Energy Agency mandates that countries hold a stock reserve “equivalent to 90 days of net imports,” Australia only has 43 days worth of supply, the Australian reports. And that could be cut down even further if a global crisis threatens supply channels from places like the Middle East.

Letter to The Editor - Earth Day should Celebrate 'Engines and Electricity'

Most chapters of human history are defined by the tools and machines that were used.

In the Stone Age, the first tools were “green tools” – digging sticks, spears, boomerangs, bows and arrows made of wood; and axes, clubs, knives and grinders made of stone. These were all powered by human energy.

Mind Control Waves: Uncle Joe was Right After All By Uncle Len, with No Mind at All, but Who does Not Mind


     My Uncle Joe, who was a cranky old conspiracy nutter like me, often spoke about “mind control waves,’” used to control the “cretins,” pardon the French. Yet, for all of his madness, which runs in the family, it seems the old circus clown was spot on:
https://www.rt.com/news/424734-us-counterterrorism-center-mind-control/

“The Washington State Fusion Center, a multi-agency counterterrorism center, accidentally released some puzzling documents this week: A dossier on the effects of remote mind control, a media report claims. Investigative journalism site Muckrock filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the center, looking for documents on Fusion’s investigations into white supremacist groups and far-left activists Antifa. Among the trove of documents they got back was a file titled “EM effects on human body.”

“Microsoft’s Bill Gates is backing a start-up that will provide ‘live and unfiltered’ high definition footage of every inch of Earth. The startup, EarthNow, plans to launch 500 satellites to cover Earth’s atmosphere in ‘Big Brother’ real-time video surveillance. As well as Gates, SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son and aerospace giant Airbus are also backing the project. The price of the project could run to $1 billion (£700m), although the value of the investment by the companies has not been disclosed. Applications could including tracking illegal fishing, monitoring the weather and tracking natural migrations globally.”

Has the North Korean Threat Really Gone? By James Reed

     Even the Alt Right ultra-paranoid sites, which I live on, have relaxed given the gestures of peace made by North Korea. After all, Kim has said that he wants peace, and he would not tell us a lie would he? In fact, the reality of the halting of nuclear tests may only be because of geophysical reasons:
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/geologists-north-koreas-nuclear-test-site-has-collapsed_04262018

“A study by Chinese geologists shows the mountain above North Korea’s main nuclear test site has collapsed under the stress of nuclear test explosions. This would render the site unsafe for further nuclear testing and necessitate monitoring for any leaking radiation. Is this perhaps the reason Kim Jong-Un has agreed to denuclearize North Korea? Perhaps, but of course, we’ll probably never know. The findings by the scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China may shed new light on North Korean President Kim Jong Un’s announcement that his country was ceasing its testing program. Nuclear explosions release enormous amounts of heat and energy, and the North’s largest test in September was believed early on to have rendered the site in northeastern North Korea unstable.

Letter to The Editor - Climate Lessons from King Canute

     Climate Aristocrats and Bureaucrats from 190 nations are meeting in Bonn, dreaming up rules “to prevent the globe from warming more than 2°C”. They have forgotten the lesson of mighty King Canute - he demonstrated that not even his great power could roll back the tide. Changing Climate is the natural state on Earth. Just 12,000 years ago the globe warmed quickly by over 10°C, the great ice sheets melted, and sea levels rose dramatically. Then it got cold again. Temperatures then fluctuated over a range of about 5°C during the Egyptian Warm period, the Roman Warm period, the Dark Ages Mini Ice Age, the Medieval Warm period and the grim times of the Little Ice Age.

     We are fortunate to live in the fruitful Modern Warm Era and global temperatures are probably near the top for this climate cycle. None of the warm eras were caused by man’s use of coal, gas, or petroleum or by bovine emissions. And none of the cold eras were triggered by mandating more windmills, taxing open fires or following emission targets set in Bonn, Brussels, Rio or Rome. This is their 48th Climate talk fest. It’s time the Climate Aristocrats admitted they cannot predict or control climate, they have harmed consumers (especially the world’s poorest people), and they are achieving nothing useful for the environment. Send them home now (on their zero-emission bicycles).

Radioactive Roads! By Brian Simpson

     You have to hand it to the Japanese, they have true samurai spirit and do not let little things like atomic bombs being dropped on them set them back. A truly great people, who are unfortunately facing all of the problems which we face, although they are holding back the tide on mass immigration by using their ingenuity to go robots. But…
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-02-japan-to-build-roads-out-of-radioactive-fukushima-dirt.html 

“When nuclear disaster struck at Japan’s Fukushima-Daiichi power plant, it was clear that the environmental impact of such extreme amounts of radiation would be immeasurable. Reports on just how bad the situation at the plant is have continued to reveal a devastating truth: Even in 2017, the amount of radiation being produced by the damaged reactors was lethal. In spite of the obvious risk, Japanese government officials are now looking to make use of the radioactive Fukushima — by using dirt from the site to build new roads. Roughly six years after the meltdown began, the radiation in and around the nuclear reactors was still being described as a “nuclear explosion that doesn’t end.”

Cannibalised Humanism By Chris Knight

     Ah! The subtle desire for the headline, to have one’s name out there in lights for one’s 15 minutes of fame. What will peole do? What will people say? Richard Dawkins, first known for the ultra-Darwinist idea of the selfish gene (we are just machines for our genes), and later for his savage attacks on Christianity, now is saying that “meat’s back on the menu, boys!”
  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/03/13/richard-dawkins-suggests-eating-human-flesh-to-overcome-cannibalism-taboo/

“Commenting on an article from the UK’s Independent newspaper, which touts the benefits of lab-grown “clean meat,” Dawkins tweeted earlier this month that perhaps something similar could be done with human flesh, which would assist western culture in shedding yet another irrational remnant of its Judeo-Christian roots. …Dawkins said that eating lab-grown human meat would provide an “interesting test case for consequentialist morality versus ‘yuck reaction’ absolutism,” which keeps people from doing things just because they seem morally repugnant.”

The Fall of the Austrian Oak: The Bad Oil on Climate Change By John Steele

False News about Alleged Russian Nerve Agents By Michael Ferguson

     The Deep State of the West must have a death wish, for they are forever obsessed with starting a war with Russia, perhaps because they see the last drop of symbolic resistance to their complete domination of the universe, in a way crazier than any 1960s James Bond villain. It is a globalist psychopathology of the most disturbing form, for unlike other killers and mass murders, the global elite are willing to destroy life on earth. Apparently, the elimination of anything higher than a virus would be a win for globalism, so long as all forms of nationalism are obliterated. The nerve gas attack in the UK on ex-spy Sergei Skripal, probably did not come from Russia at all:

“The substance used in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal may have originated from the countries studying the “Novichok” nerve agent, including the UK, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Sweden, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. “The most likely source of origin of the toxin are the countries which have been carrying out intense research on the substances from the ‘Novichok’ program, approximately since the end of the 1990s until the present time, and this project is not the creation of Russia or the Soviet Union,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Saturday. She listed the UK, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Sweden among the countries involved. The US should also “be put under question,” Zakharova said in an interview with the state broadcaster VGTRK.

Who is Afraid of Global Cooling? By James Reed

     I, for one, am a global cooling man. I think a new ice age could happen, so the only thing to do is to increase one’s carbon footprint to try and heat things up a bit. I am not a climate scientist, or anyone very important at all, but this is my gut feeling. Here is an article which confirms more of my prejudices, of growing cold temperature across the world, extremes of cold and snow and ice, with the prospects of Canberra reaching -8C, which should freeze up Parliament House. This could only be for the good:

Doomsday Camps By John Steele

     It pays to pay close attention to what the elite are up to, since, well, they are the evil masterminds of the grand global conspiracy to enslave us all, blah, blah etc. etc. Now it seems that the Washington elites are flocking to “doomsday camps”:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-20/what-do-they-know-we-dont-dc-officials-flock-doomsday-camps
  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/official-washington-flocking-to-doomsday-camps-1

“A building network of backwoods doomsday camps around the country are pulling in members from affluent areas and even Washington national security officials as the threats grow from nuclear war, an EMP or virus attack. Called Fortitude Ranch, the outposts promise protection and a year’s supply of food for those unable to build their own bunker. What’s more, until a crisis strikes, they are being used for prepper training and vacations. “We’re seeing members from all the three letter agencies,” said Fortitude creator Drew Miller, a retired Air Force colonel and intelligence officer, in a reference to the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation. He called an attack or even a weather-related electromagnetic pulse shutdown of the electric grid “inevitable,” and a driving force in his project.”
