The Fruits of Diabetes By Mrs Vera West

     If like me, you have diabetes and are using diet to control it, you need to be aware of your sugar intake. Not all fruits are suitable for you, some being naturally high in fructose, a form of sugar:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-10-which-fruits-are-safe-to-eat-if-youre-diabetic.html

“One study involving over 45,000 participants in the Singapore Chinese Health Study reported that certain types of fruits decreased the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, while some types increased the risk, dietary and lifestyle factors notwithstanding. The participants, aged between 45 to 74 years, and had no diabetes, cancer or cardiovascular disease upon recruitment (1993 to 1998), answered a validated food-frequency questionnaire in order to assess their fruit intake. The researchers then conducted follow-up interviews with the participants – one in 1991 to 2004, and one in 2006 to 2010 – and found that over 5,000 of the participants developed Type 2 diabetes during these follow-up periods.

Mirror, Mirror… By James Reed

     So, if you think all of those global warming socialists are environmentally friendly, and I am thinking of you Al Gore, think again:  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/study-global-warming-skeptics-more-likely-to-be-eco-friendly-than-climate-change-alarmists_05092018

“Published in the April edition of the Journal of Environmental Psychology, the one-year study broke 600 participants into three groups based on their level of concern about climate change: “highly concerned,” “cautiously worried,” and “skeptical.” The study by Cornell and the University of Michigan researchers found that those “highly concerned” about climate change were less likely to engage in recycling and other eco-friendly behaviors than global-warming skeptics, according to The Washington Times. Those “highly concerned” about climate change were the most supportive of government climate policies (meaning they want others stolen from and forced at gunpoint to pay for their beliefs) but were the least likely to report their own individual-level actions.

Next: A Muslim Superhero By Peter Ewer

     One has to hand it to Marvel comics, they are in over-drive creating ethnically diverse “heroes,” mainly by changing old favourites like Spider-man and Captain America. Now they have a Muslim hero:  https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/marvel-muslim-superhero-mcu-ms-kamala-khan-film-brie-larson-captain-marvel-a8350571.html

     Fortunately, comics no longer have much of an impact, having long lost out to other forms of “entertainment.” Hopefully the comic will die out, taking the pc nonsense down with it. I had collected Marvel comics since the 1960s, and through disgust with recent trends, burnt them all. In my opinion, I did not want to give them away, any more that I would give rotting food away, as the health of the public is first.

High Anxiety By Chris Knight

Logical Contradictions in the Marvel Cinema Universe (MCU) By Chris Knight

     My Alt Right math teacher from the US, Dr John Jensen is staying with me for a few weeks, as he has taken long service leave from his highly demanding job (Not). I asked him if he would contribute some papers to our site on the more technical issues, but related to Christianity, he being a strong Biblical Christian who is appalled at the shape of morality in society. His focus will be on mathematics, as almost nothing exists on Christian mathematics, and he is taking a rather sceptical line against the usual view that mathematics is a creation of God. God may be a mathematician, but it does not follow that God’s math is man’s.

     I also see many philosophical problems with the contemporary philosophy of mathematics. For example, most mathematicians are Platonists, believing that the entities of mathematics exist in some extra-sensory reality. The number 1 is, for example, an abstract entity, and thus not subjected to physical constraints. Yet, did God make such entities if they exist beyond space, time and the physical world? What does such existence mean and how can humans work with such abstract entities, since abstract entities would not enter into causal relationships? For Dr Jensen, mathematics is a human creation, and in his papers, he shows why. He seems to be doing for us what our own Ian Wilson did for law, putting it back in the human realm, as well as preserving the mysteries of the Godhead. On a tangent, but still on the issue of math, it may be of interest to note that Marvel Film is holding to these propositions, which is creating some confusion on the internet:

God and Mathematics 2: The Inconsistency of the Principle of Mathematical Induction By Dr John Jensen

     The principle of mathematical induction, which is actually a deductive principle, is used extensively in number theory, and it would seriously wreck mathematics if there were sound objections to it. Here, I argue that there are, as part of my Christian humbling programme for the sciences. Human hubris and intellectual pride needs to be put in its place so that the grace of God can once more rule the hearts of men. But, to business.    The principle of mathematical induction is a proof method for proving that a proposition P(n) holds for all natural numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, … . It is like a series of dominoes knocking the next over. And, it is said to work because the axiom of induction is one of the Peano axioms for arithmetic:

If φ is a unary predicate such that:•    φ(0) is true, and•    for every natural number n, φ(n) being true implies that φ(S(n)) is true,then, φ(n) is true for every natural number n.To conduct a proof, first prove the base step, P(0), that the property holds for the number 0, or 1. The second step is the inductive step where one makes the assumption that P(k), is true for some k. Then one considers P(k+1), and shows that P(k) implies P(k+1), thus concluding that the proposition is true by the principle of mathematical induction.

God and Mathematics Part 1: The Logico-Semantical Paradoxes By Dr John Jensen

     I am pleased to be holidaying in Australia taking a break from the dangers of living in the United States, which is now in a state of virtual civil war. Young Chris Knight, whom I knew from America as a student, invited me to write some papers in my spare time while here, which I am pleased to do. See, no rest for the good, as well as the wicked. My interest, as a Christian who believes in the literal truth of the Holy Scriptures is that science has been in many ways a threat to Biblical belief, in ways that are often subtle. Evolution is not subtle, nor is mechanistic accounts of the mind, which eliminate free will and the soul, but a subtle metaphysical threat is posed by certain so-called advances in mathematics, especially the theory of infinity, which in a sense deconstructs one of the divine attributes. If infinity is tamed and is just another mathematical object, as in the theory of transfinite set theory, then it is that much easier, along with the materialist baggage of the modern physical sciences, to abandon God. Who needs that hypothesis, Laplace said to Napoleon:  https://www.quantumdiaries.org/2011/09/16/there-is-no-need-for-god-as-a-hypothesis/

     There is a current of thought which takes it that mathematics is the path to God, because God is Logos, and mathematics is allegedly Logos incarnate. Certainly, Jesus Christ, as a person of the Trinity, is an incarnation of the divine Logos that formed the universe, but it is drawing a long bow to therefore identify the divine Logos with an imperfect instrument such as mathematics. In these papers I explain why by illustrating some of the many theoretical limitations of logic and mathematics, and paradoxes and antinomies. This to my mind breaks the classical link which theologians have made with mathematics and the Divine.

Musking the Media By Peter Ewer

     Whoooaaah, first Trump and now our friend with the cars and spaceships, I think, Elon Musk, unloading on the establishment media, right along Trumpesque  lines, of “false news.” Thus, for the reader’s amusement, since we all know that the mainstream media is deceit with a purpose, here are Elon’s delightful Tweets. They are hard hitting and to the point, or should I say, “On Target.” 

Elon Musk✔@elonmuskThe holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them https://twitter.com/electrekco/status/999318852365303808 …3:55 AM - May 24, 2018

Battle Station Soon By James Reed

     I have been reporting on evidence of the accelerating movement to World War III, in my last article quoting Chinese sources that China is already on a war footing. The latest piece of evidence:   http://gazette.com/mattis-tells-air-force-academy-graduating-class-your-primary-weapons-system-now-is-your-attitude/article/1626487

“The 984 graduates at the Air Force Academy on Wednesday got an unedited introduction to the difficult world they now face as new officers. The graduation’s keynote speaker, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, told the group they will see battle soon. And they will be expected to win every fight. “Your primary weapons system now is your attitude,” Mattis said. That’s no surprise to the Class of 2018, all of whom have spent the majority of their lives in a nation at war. But having war as a daily backdrop isn’t enough to condition troops for how tough those fights can be when you’re in the middle of them, Mattis said. “Always be ready to fight and win,” Mattis said. “There is no room for complacency.”

Massacres in Australia: Not by Gun By John Steele

     After the school shootings in the US, the globalist gun banning tribe have been squawking about how Australia is free from the US “disease” because of Johnny Howard’s gun ban. But, a little more research dispels the myth that Australia has avoided massacres. What has changed is only the weapons used, and of course the methodology, used to define and record such “massacres.” Drug-related shooting where there are less that four victims killed or wounded are not counted, thus keeping the statistic tidy. Put in such drug and gangland killings and wounding, and so-called gun free Australia starts to look like the US in certain regions. Parts of Sydney are warzones already:  https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/sydneys-crime-gang-kingpins-and-their-kill-squads/news-story/54796df5637da2c3a4c1b1749977bb63

     There have been massacres to match recent US shootings, only involving other weapons, such as   the Cairns child massacre, where 8 children were killed with a knife, the Quaker Hill Nursing home arson in Australia that killed 14 and the Lin killings in which the assailant used a  hammer to kill 5 people:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cairns_child_killings   http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-03-09/quakers-hill-nursing-home-fire-inquest-findings-released/6290248    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lin_family_murders

The Malignant Financial System By James Reed

     Each week, at least one of us rages against our cancerous financial system. For a change, here is a Russian saying it as only a Russian can, so join me in having a vodka with lemon:   https://russia-insider.com/en/new-russia-sanctions-good-time-think-about-replacing-our-malignant-global-financial-system/ri23502

“Any country that does not have full control of its own financial affairs is not truly sovereign. No matter how well intentioned or patriotic its leaders may be, it will always have to operate within the artificially strict confines of current economic theories and the dominance of the international financial system. The international financial system (or, more correctly, the international banking system) may or may not be run by deliberately evil people but the top of this structure is dominated by a disdain for nationhood and thus also a disdain for community and family, a peoples’ heritage and personal freedom. No matter how noble its propaganda may sound the appalling and destructive drive for any sort of “world order” always will create “disorder” and harm. Such a highly centralized and powerful structure cannot be anything other than a war against reality and the ordinary human spirit.

Sex Slavery in the Netherlands By Tom North

     The mass grooming and raping of British children seems to be merely a part of the rape of Europe, with a similar event happening in the Netherlands:  https://www.jihadwatch.org/2018/05/the-netherlands-1400-underage-dutch-girls-forced-into-sex-slavery-by-migrant-background-males   http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/22/underage-dutch-sex-slavery-foreign-pimps/

“Every year more than one thousand underage Dutch girls are groomed and then blackmailed into sex slavery by young pimps with migrant backgrounds, an investigation has revealed. With gifts, drink, and drugs, so-called ‘loverboys’ will seduce a girl into agreeing to become his sex partner before taking pictures or video footage of the encounter which will then be used as leverage to force her into prostitution, Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reports. “These men are mostly Moroccans, Turks, Caribbeans, and Roma. The lion’s share of them have a migrant background,” said Gideon van Aartsen from Watch Nederland, an initiative which coordinates with the nation’s police on efforts to fight child sexual exploitation (CSE).

Grip Strength and the Brain By John Steele

     My grand pop told me to judge a man by his handshake. Men with soft effeminate hands, beware! But, now research is indicating that there is so much more to grip strength:   https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-24-your-handshake-may-be-a-good-indicator-of-how-healthy-your-brain-is.html

“A hand grip may be a normal, everyday thing for men and women alike but a recent study showed that the strength of a handshake can indicate a person’s brain health. Using the data of 475,397 people from the general population in the U.K., and 1,162 participants who were diagnosed with schizophrenia, researchers discovered that grip strength is connected to the performance of the visual memory and reaction time of a person. This study has been proven in two groups where one has participants over 55 years old and the other has participants younger than 55. Aside from visual memory and reaction time, tests conducted during the research also included examinations for reasoning, prospective memory and number memory.

Migrant Truck Drivers: A Truly Great Idea By Richard Miller

     Germany sure knows how to solve a problem: train migrants as truck drivers! Perhaps then, train migrants as train drivers, and then drive migrants by train. Train migrants to train train drivers who train truck drivers! I give up; I can’t use the word “train” in any more senses, no matter how much I train, without tripping over my pen/key board.  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/23/germany-asylum-seekers-should-be-trained-truck-drivers/

“A pilot project in Germany is working to make it easier for asylum seekers to become truck drivers – an initiative that comes amid widespread unemployment for migrants who arrived during the migrant crisis. The German Red Cross and the Logistics Organisation want to alleviate the shortage of drivers in the state of Schleswig-Holstein with targetted recruiting of asylum seekers, in moves that have been praised as “imaginative and praiseworthy” by regional Economics Minister Bernd Buchholz, reports Kieler Nachrichten. A similar nation-wide programme of hiring asylum seekers and refugees as truck drivers was pushed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel after she opened Europe’s borders to over one million Middle Eastern and African migrants in 2015, the vast majority of whom are unskilled.”

English Language Vapourised on the Unis By James Reed

     The destruction of English is another excellent reason for closing down the universities and confiscating the super of academics, then requiring them to do mandatory road work with picks and shovels:  http://collapse.news/2018-05-18-english-language-is-collapsing-into-idiocracy-gobbledygook-on-liberal-colleges-gender-pronoun-lunacy.html

“The first known college to do so, the City University of New York (CUNY) – Guttmana, located in New York City, recently distributed and has been actively propagating a “Gender Identity and Pronouns” manifesto that instructs students and faculty on how to further bastardize the English language by replacing its traditional gender pronouns with completely made-up ones that reflect a litany of modern-day “gender identities.” The official school-sanctioned document openly declares that individuals “choose their own gender identities,” meaning they’re no longer assigned based on biological sex. Consequently, it’s now the responsibility of every normal person in the world to probe which ones are “appropriate” to use when addressing others who choose to be gender “neutral,” or who “reject the gender binary.”

Dhimmitude in Germany By Richard Miller

     The term “dhimmitude” refers to the existence of non-Muslims living under an Islamic system, as Germany and much of Europe is fast becoming:  https://wikiislam.net/wiki/Dhimmitude_(definition)    https://www.amazon.com.au/Strange-Death-Europe-Immigration-Identity/dp/1472942248

     Part of the alleged dhimmitude social contract, that the Left think exists, is that if they defend Islam, they will get cool positions in the new regime. Hence the following;  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/18/german-broadcaster-ramadan-an-old-german-custom/

Italy Rules! By James Reed

     It is good to see a wee bit of good news in this time of the dark days of the rule of Mordor. Thus, in Italy:  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/21/new-italian-government-eurosceptic-anti-mass-migration-coalition-agreed/

“Coalition partner party leaders will go to the Quirinal Palace Monday evening to meet with Sergio Mattarella, the Italian President, to officially form a populist, Eurosceptic government which has prompted panicked headlines across the continent. The emergence of the League (‘La Lega’, northern Italy, tax-reforming, anti-mass migration) and Five Star (southern Italy, anti-establishment) coalition follows months of hard-fought negotiations since the national elections in early March.

The Slow Death of America By Charles Taylor

     America is slowly dying and I see it here every day in my home city of Tallahassee, Florida. I cannot imagine what it would be like living in a city such as Baltimore, which is essentially a warzone. Yet, leaving crime to one side, it is economic decline, contrary to Trump, which is evident, everywhere:  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-21/when-43-americans-cant-pay-food-and-rent-we-can-safely-say-economic-collapse-here   https://www.theorganicprepper.com/americans-rent-food-economic-collapse/

“You know all those reports about how lots of Americans can’t afford a $1000 surprise expense like a medical bill or a car repair? Well, forget additional expenses. It turns out that nearly half of the families in America are struggling to pay for food and rent. And that means that the economic collapse isn’t just “coming.” It’s HERE. United Way has done a study on a group of Americans they call ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The study found that this group does not make the money needed “to survive in the modern economy.” ALICE is your child care worker, your parent on Social Security, the cashier at your supermarket, the gas attendant, the salesperson at your big box store, your waitress, a home health aide, an office clerk. ALICE cannot always pay the bills, has little or nothing in savings, and is forced to make tough choices such as deciding between quality child care or paying the rent. One unexpected car repair or medical bill can push these financially strapped families over the edge.

Letter to The Editor - There has developed an imbalance within universities favouring hostile analysis of our tradition

To The Australian          University courses in the history of Western European civilization and culture, as proposed by the Ramsay Centre, certainly deserve to be included in our tertiary institutions' programmes, both because the core material is fundamentally sound and because there has developed an imbalance within universities favouring hostile analysis of our tradition and its gifts ('Embrace rich Western heritage', 24/5). However, these proposed new courses must ensure that that hostile analysis itself is fairly examined and, where correct, admitted to be so. The cultural richness of other sacred traditions and their civilisations should also be appropriately acknowledged in the new syllabi. What is to be avoided is the replacing of one ideologically driven propaganda drive with another.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Cobra Kai: No Bullshito Karate By “Johnny” Steele

     There is a new TV show from YouTube Red, Cobra Kai:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rB36UGoP4Y

     This continues the story of The Karate Kid (1984). The original movie has typical cultural war stuff with the new ethnic kid in town, allegedly being bullied by the local blonde karate dudes. Ethnic kid gets trained by a magical Asian sorcerer and in a few weeks is a karate champion, who wins the major tournament, defeating the villain blonde Johnny. For anyone who has seen the movie, here is a parody from YouTube which puts the case for Johnny, and is absolutely hilarious, as well as being well-argued too:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_Gz_iTuRMM
