This, in fact, is what the Leftists hold to be their qualifications to make a moral judgment. Ask any of them. They will tell you repeatedly, so vehemently that one cannot get in a word edgewise, that they make no moral judgments, that making judgments is wrong, and that to make a judgment even in one's thought is wrong -- they call this bigotry, because they call everything by the word that means the opposite of what they really mean.

The people not upset about this are not fans of the show, because to be a fan means to use one's judgment to judge the show as being well crafted and the story well told. The decision was poor story telling, and that would be obvious - no matter what one's opinion about the morality or desirability or corrosive effect on society of sexual perversion.

What is the lesson here for little boys and girls watching the show? That every friend of yours, male or female, secretly craves sexual congress with you? That to be a policeman means you can neither have the magical girl nor the attractive rich girl, but you are a big loser, and they go off with each other? That family means nothing, that sex is entertainment and means nothing, that life means nothing, that ergo young women should act like bigmouthed jerks? That a woman in a leadership role is not a princess, prophetess nor priestess but is instead a pervertess?

This has nothing to do with my religion. I joined the Catholics because they are against homosexuality. I did not become against homosexuality because I joined the Catholics.

There is no need for you to apologize. I am not the one who decided to act unprofessionally, and assault the character of a fellow writer int the field. Mr Hines is. I am not the bigot. Mr Hines is. I believe a certain degree of courtesy and respect is due to comrades, and that other loyalties exist aside from political loyalties: Mr Hines does not.

He is a member of a cult of hate; I am a member of a religion of love. I love mankind, love virtue, love truth, and love beauty to the same degree and with the same intensity that the Hate Cult hates all these things. There is no compromise, no quarter and no peace between us.

PS: Logically, your friend cannot have a 'wife.' Women cannot have wives for the same reason the mother of an orphan cannot be alive. The word refers to someone who forms one half of a sexual dyad.

What your friend has is a desire for her friend to masturbate together with her, which creates sexual sensations without the sex act. The sex act requires mates of the opposite sex to perform. I have no doubt their love is as sincere as a pederast for his underage lover, a sadomasochist for his partner in chains, and so on. The sincerity of the love does not change the unnatural love to a natural one.

The fact that your language is so degraded and debased that you cannot even form a non-paradoxical sentence, that you cannot speak the truth, but instead choose to speak what you know or should know to be nonsense about the matter indicates an alarming lack of mental integrity on your part.

Myself, my faith that Mr. Trump will serve his second term, to which he was lawfully elected by a landslide, is unaltered by recent events.

Things look dark. We live in an Empire of Lies, where all the publicly controlled information has been corrupted to the point where nothing can be trusted, not even basic information. The deception is at times blatant and at times subtle. At times, it is so subtle that even a trained skeptic on his guard can be deceived, and unwittingly adopt the assumptions language of the enemy, and spread his ideas.


Allow me to state publicly the source of my confidence in triumph, despite all appearances of desolation and defeat. As a Christian, despite the recited prayers and written scriptures, clouded minds like my own tend to forget that God desires no man’s death. Heaven desires salvation even for those destined to damnation.

All these evil men, God wishes to save. These backstabbers, traitors, cowards, liars, deep-staters and swamp creatures, plutocrats and anarchists, rioters, looters, lowly criminals, power-mad politicians, smooth-faced sons of the Father of Lies, all of them.

They are sunk in the darkness, murk, and sticky swamp-water of sin, as are we all. They deserve hellfire, as do all Sons of Adam. Christ loves them, as improbable as this seems.

Let not your hearts be troubled. Let us review what has been discovered the last few days of the election debacle, which shall be known to history as the Great American Gaslighting.

Trump did win in a landslide.

They are gaslighting you. You saw the size of the Trump rallies in the sunbelt and rustbelt states. You saw Biden could not fill up a school gymnasium.

As for voting irregularities, fraud, and miscounts, there is abundant evidence, shockingly so, almost as if the malefactors are rubbing our noses in it when they claiming there is no evidence.

This is gaslighting you again.

Is it time to reconsider the 19th Amendment?

The argument for female suffrage is that women are not more prone to bouts of emotionalism than men, and hence is it equally worthwhile, as the whole, to consult with them over the conduct and control of public business.

Unfortunately, it is evident that there are but rare and few men in the current generation show any particular manly or masculine virtues which would entitle them to a say in the public business, if stoicism, reason, and virtue were preconditions for the franchise.

The argument against female suffrage is that voting is a peaceful substitute for revolution, wherein the less numerous party, seeing himself outnumbered, agreed without bloodshed to abide by the vote of the more numerous. Women, being largely less ready, willing, or able to take up arms than men, have no place in these military questions.

Another argument against is that experience over the last several generation shows that female suffrage erodes the willingness and ability of maidens to become wives and mothers, to shape the character of the next generation, which is a task more needed for the preservation of the republic.

[From “The Birth of Nations”]

There are only three means of forming a government: by birth, by conquest, and by covenant.

Clans and tribes forming a kingdom by electing or acclaiming a chieftain or high king from their midst is an example of the first. Such groups spring from a common ancestor. The Normans ruling the Saxons in England after William the Conqueror, or the castes of India are an example of the second: the children of the conquerors rule over a lower class of the children of the vanquished.

In history, there are only two examples of government formed by covenant: the first is the USA. The other is ancient Israel.


As with American naturalization, among the Israelis, a stranger or sojourner could become a Jew, and enter the covenant, if he submitted to their laws and ceremonies.


The French Revolution and Russian Revolution established governments which are best described as satanic mockeries of the American Revolution; they have the form of Roman Republicanism as the American Republic does, even using the name, and take the rhetoric of being a democracy, of the people and by the people. But they are merely what the Greeks called Tyrannies, that is, governments based on the rule by the strong, not an established dynasty. These are not government, but are dysfunctions of government: such revolutionary governments are merely an anarchy of the governing junta, whose excesses are restrained by no law nor custom, and whose crimes never come to reckoning.

In the modern day, the cease fire no longer applies: Social Marxism or Social Justice or whatever name the philosophy of the rebellion of Lucifer is using these days to mask itself, as promoted by schools, and enforced by the Civil Rights Act, is the unofficial but quite clearly established church of the United States, and takes steps to remove all signs of fealty and faith to Christianity from the public square.

The people of this country are not the bad guys.

But is increasingly clear that many people in the top echelons of power and influence are downright Satanic.

This is not limited to government officials or politicians either. How many celebrities out of Hollywood have little regard for Jesus? If they do acknowledge Him, it is usually in the same breath as Buddha or Ghandi or some other eastern mystic.

There was good reason for the Inquisition. The reasons to demonize it come from the very people who probably would have been executed for extreme heresy.

Fucking logic, how does it work?

John C. Wright #fundie scifiwright.com

Third, if God does not exist, the universe can have no mental properties. It is a machine made of particles, but one thrown together without a designer, serving no purpose. If so, when one unintentional byproduct of the machinery of the world is the bewildered ape called Man, the machinery of his brain cannot be designed by a designer for a purpose. At best, the purpose of preserving the man and his bloodline might emerge spontaneously by a statistical elimination of every pre-human man-ape whose brain chemistry made A equal to Non-A, or twice two equal five. But then we have no evidence of pre-human man-apes each with his several systems of non-operative logic and mathematics, and no reason to believe that natural selection would make the twice-two-is-five apes die off quicker than the twice-two-is-four.

John C. Wright #fundie scifiwright.com

Since, to date, there is not one jot nor tittle of evidence that a new species ever was born of parent of a different species, and since, moreover, the mechanisms of genetics seem to militate against this (how does the ape-man with 48 chromosomes give birth to Adam and Eve, who have 46 chromosomes? If it is a mutation, how does it just so happen that Adam is born in the same generation as Eve, and mates with her, and not with a she-ape?) I would offer that Darwin's theory never rises above the level of a philosophical speculation.

John C. Wright #fundie scifiwright.com

But technically, Darwinism is not science, because it rests on non-empirical assumptions about matter not open to empirical proof or disproof. You cannot hand me a telescope and show me the apeman giving birth to man, or man giving birth to superman. You cannot even breed peas and make them into something other than peas.

Recently it was also revealed that Disney’s live action version of their masterpiece BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, taken from a traditional fairy tale, will introduce the sidekick of the antagonist to be a sodomite whose wish is not to serve and aid the object of his admiration, but to kiss and caress. This is aimed at a general audience, including children.

Now, as a means to promote a change of opinion, no one book or film is likely to accomplish much, and these things are sure to lose customers and create ill will among their loyal customers, including me. So money is not their motive.

There is a message to the fiction. The message is this: the normal male friendship that obtains between Sancho Panza and Don Quixote, Frodo Baggins and Sam Gamgee, D’Artagnan and the Three Musketeers, Robin and Batman, is now defined as unreal. There are two kinds of love recognized to exist: family love, which is very commonly used now to refer to strong bonds of friendship between team mates, and sexual love, which includes everything else. There is no room for friendship.

The institutions of maidenhood, marriage, and motherhood have not escaped the curse of madness. Most obviously, our nation has become psychotic on sexual topics, that is, the consensus opinion has suffered a total break with reality. A measure of this break can be seen in that even fundamental distinctions between male and female are abolished. These include questions of whether men can be brides and marrying other men, or use the women’s locker room in schools, or girls pretending to be boys can join the Boy Scouts.

Anyone who refers to reality, that is, any sane man saying a sane thing, on these topics is shouted down, vilified, demonized, and called phobic, homophobic or transphobic, that is, accused of having a psychopathological fear of homosexuals or transvestites.

The irony is that the insane call the sane insane. And that is insane.

Our nation’s current sexual psychoses spring from decades of neurotic decisions concerning abortion, contraception, and no-fault divorce. The pleasures of the marriage bed, which are quite clearly natural, pleasurable, and joyful, become unnatural when the intimacy of marriage is eroded. Prostitution reduces these sacred and intimate ecstasies to a commodity; Pornography makes the commodity public. Contraception so reduces the moral hazard of fathering a bastard that the merely prudential argument against out of wedlock copulation is muted. And no nation could so divorce itself from nature as to contemplate making it lawful to murder offspring in the womb unless a passion as strong as the sexual drive were behind it.


The oil pipeline was symbolic. It is meant to placate Gaia. The government funding for abortion is symbolic. It is meant to placate Moloch. The riots in the streets when bankers meet is symbolic. It is meant to deflect the cargo planes from the White Man to the Borneo Islanders. The protests by women dressed as their own genitalia is symbolic. It is for Lilith and Hecate. The love of Islamic terrorism in this generation, and the love of Soviet terrorism, mass killings, and orchestrated starvation in the last generation is symbolic. It is for Satan.

Christendom is the only place in human history where witchcraft and fortune telling has ever been outlawed, and once men were forbidden from trying to rule nature by magic, then and only then did their faith that a rational God made a rational universe, hence their faith that every effect has a cause, give them the mental outlook needed for science to be possible.

Great truths need few words to say them:

Here is the secret to Leftwing psychology. The men among them think, not like women, but like neurotic women gripped in self loathing. They hate themselves, so they hate being women, so they hate babies and the whole process of reproduction. They hate themselves, so they hate motherhood and murder unborn babies. They hate themselves, so they hate the policeman and the soldier who protects their lives. They hate themselves, so they want recreational drugs to be legal, not to mention assisted suicide. They hate themselves, so they hate their nation which has bestowed absurd amounts of freedom and luxury upon them.

They hate themselves, so they hate the God who made them.

when the so called freethinking rebels win, they impose a politically correct uniformity of thought far less free and far less interesting to read and far more preposterously hypocritical than the old established pieties, which at least had experience, common sense, and authentic human emotion on their side, not to mention divine revelation. At such at time the only manly response to the bold nonconformists (all strangely in perfect lockstep with each other!) is to become superversive, and write books upholding not just Motherhood and Apple Pie, but the Virgin Mary and Eucharist.

And the orcs will choke on the wholesome lembas, and spit them out like ashes.

These orcs, in the final analysis, are enemies of humanity, the free market, and freedom; they are the foes of God and Man. For them to claim science fiction as their particular bastion is beyond risible and well into the terrain of the absurd. SFF is the one literature which never will accept the mental uniformity of falsehood these anti-Mothers crave.

The scientific evidence, such as it is:

All human genes have been traced back to two ancestors, the first called “Mitochondrial Eve”, the second misnamed “Y-Chromosomal Adam”. The fact that there is one woman and one man who gave their genes to all is established by the evidence, the “scientists” then do backflips to say that there were actually several thousand individuals, even though they can show no evidence of that. They cannot claim more than that with the evidence they have, and even that is a stretch. Those several thousand fictional individuals are invented to allow them to claim that the Bible is false. Being not backed by evidence, they are, scientifically speaking, falsified.

The woman's genes are traced, using rather iffy methods (the dates may be way off), to an ancient time period, the mans genes to a less ancient time period. This causes the scientists to shriek “see, we told you that story of Adam and Eve was false, they lived at different times!” To this I reply NOAH. The Bible lists one time period when there was one woman who was the mother of all women, and two periods where one man was the father of all men, although in the case of Noah, the father of all surviving men. The second, later man's genes would overwright the first mans genes in the genetic record. The women in the ark were all from different mothers, the men, only from one father (plus the father himself present).

Thus the scientific evidence, which is different than “what scientists believe” (which is not science) validates the Bible as speaking literally.

And the only way one species can evolve into another is if it was planned by a planner, which is the whole problem with evolution. In the case of man, it was simply not planned, and did not happen, since what would God do with a half sentient creature, send it halfway to heaven or hell?

To get a new species, you could, as a planner, have one male and one female born with the same mutations, in the same area, and then have them mate with each other. The chance of that happening randomly is too small to even consider. It is a mute point with "human evolution", since it did not happen, animals and plants are another matter.

John C. Wright #fundie scifiwright.com

You see, according to the Darwinists, nothing outweighs self-preservation except for race-preservation, on the ground that whatever genetically coded strategy of survival promotes the most selfish gene (selfish here meaning designed to preserve and promote itself with the greatest tenacity) by definition is the code most likely to be carried along in future generations, repeating itself. It is the ultimate conservative.

However, ironically, this genetically selfish behavior is a hindrance to the process of evolution as evolution is usually described. It is only by eliminating the selfish gene, creating mutations, and then weeding out the unfit, that evolution, as it is usually described, can take place. It is the ultimate radical.

(I must pause to comment that was is described as Darwinism is usually unrelated to Darwin, and more related to Nietzsche, Hegel, and Marx, who had a mystical belief in endless upward progress either toward the superman, the absolute, or the socialist paradise. Darwin never spoke about evolution, only about descent with modification, which is a sound theory regarding the creation of breeds, but in recent years has begun to seem doubtful in the minds of candid biologists regarding the creation of a new species, much less a new genus, family, order, class, phylum, kingdom. The random mutation theory, which is not Darwin's theory, does not seem to be a feasible mechanism to explain the stability of species in some geological strata, versus the sudden explosions of species in the precambrian and others.)

The only moral principle taught to the eager yet impressionable youths is that ‘slut-shaming’ is wrong (‘Slut-shaming’ an Orwellian term used to refer to what was once called prudence, temperance, wisdom and chastity).

The Twenty Firsters think the source of the problem is the lack of characters in popular literature who represent minorities, and, in the case of superheroes or other longstanding characters, the lack of actresses or minority characters portraying roles originally depicted as male or white. I have heard this conclusion announced on many, many an occasion, but never once with the alleged chain of reasoning upon which it is based mentioned, so I am in no position to judge its soundness, or even judge whether it even attempts to be sound.

So to solve the imaginary problem of a lack of minorities playing white character roles, and the even more imaginary problem of violations of the civil rights of those who commit acts of sexual deviance, our elite class has taken it upon themselves to use the popular culture, first, to benumb us to sexual deviance until we all think (or pretend to think) it is licit, healthy, and normal, and, second, to use the popular culture to have blacks play white characters. As I said, the point of this escapes me: the effect is to make us acutely conscious of their skin color, and ever more acutely aware (and, for our weaker members, resentful) of the special privileges shown the protected classes who enjoy antidiscrimination privileges under our laws.


Again, on THE ARROW, when a nine-months pregnant woman and the father of her child visit the obstetrician’s office, the doctor cheerfully and understandably refers to the father as ‘your husband’ and the man immediately says ‘boyfriend’ and the woman ‘ex-husband’ and the doctor simply smiles, as if neither of these conditions were shameful or questionable, as if it were not shocking, not appalling, not gravely morally repugnant, and not unthinkably stupid to bring a baby into this world without the father and mother being married to each other.


In one particularly egregious episode of LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, our mixed-race and mixed-sexual-normalcy team visits 1950. The white male who likes certain features of the time, such as the low crime rate and fundamental goodness and decency of all and sundry, is not only browbeaten and humiliated by the scolding, scalding sneering teammates, they tell him that Blacks were mistreated in this era, as were women, as were persons suffering from disordered sexual appetites. Of course all this is an outrageous lie (most black families were intact back then, and, while it is true that in the Democrat controlled areas of the country, blacks had separate schools, bathrooms, and drinking fountains from whites, it is also true that bastardy, single-mom households, gangbanging, drug abuse, and black-on-black violence was not the norm for the vast majority of blacks) and of course the designated white male punching bag, who is a hero in every other scene of this hero squad story, here just ducks his head and looks sheepish. It is yet another reaction which is forced, stiff, absurd, and violates basic psychology 101 hence basic storytelling 101.

There are certain unwise jurisdictions that have, during my lifetime, experimented with overturning the common law precept that no man can rape his wife. The disastrous effects of bringing such lawsuits could be easily foreseen by anyone not afflicted with the brain disease called Leftism.

Such evil effects were foreseen before no-fault divorce became the norm, or contraception made legal by judicial fiat, as evidenced by the fact that the Christian teaching has always sided with wisdom and experience.

I say that if the inevitable side effect of votes for women is women swearing like sailors, being treated like dirt by their menfolk, and sleeping around like whores, with the secondary side effects of teen mothers, broken families, children like walking wounded in the divorce-torn hellscape of modern life, and abortion rates as horrific as pyramids of skulls collected by the Aztecs, then be damned to votes for women. If that is the trade off, it is a bad bargain.

The woman can vote, but she cannot keep a man from walking into the locker room when she is changing. She can vote, but she cannot vote into effect a law to prevent her daughter from killing her granddaughter in the womb for any reason or no reason. She can vote, but cannot vote for a state law to protect her from illegal aliens. She can vote, but a bureaucrat decides the nature and amount of her medical care, and whether she is forced to buy contraceptives and aborticides for employees. She gets no vote on those things.

Her great grandmother could chop down a tree on her own land and build a shed, or burn the wood in her own hearth, or slaughter a chicken, or bake and sell cookies, or give food to the poor, without asking leave or let from the government. By any rational measure, her great grandmother was more free than is she now, vote or no vote.

[Discussing marital rape.]

Your comments make no absolutely sense. Women who marry have chosen, of their own free will, to give up their control of their body to their husbands. That’s what marriage means. Do you similarly complain about soldiers not having control over their bodies after they enlist? And as for voting, it is not a human right and says nothing about the worth of a human being. There are 7 billion human beings on the planet and only about 200 million are permitted to vote in the USA.

Women regard me as they choose. Unlike voting, that is their right. Many of them choose to support me for the obvious reason that they share my traditional values that have proven to be much more historically successful than the disastrous and societally destructive progressive values.

Making women into men and men into eunuchs is a central part of the HG Wellsian evolution of the West into the land of soft and gender-neutral Eloi. If female suffrage is a major contributor to that, no matter its obvious merits in the name of justice, it the name of prudence it seems a bad idea.

If (and I speak only hypothetically) it were proven to me that female suffrage must inevitably lead to the culture we see around us, where Sandra Fluke, a 30-year-old law student, becomes the patron saint of forcing we Catholics to trample the crucifix and spit on images of the Virgin and pay for her fornication and harlotry and abominations, and if I were a woman of good character and stern moral fiber, I would like to think that I would be willing to forswear the vote as an act of sacrifice merely to prevent that future, a world where women like Fluke were allowed to represent womanhood, from coming into being.

Imagine your brother and your sister both stagger back from a drunken orgy. The brother says that a woman threatened him and drugged him and forced him to get an erection and copulate with her. The woman had a gun and a knife and a daterape drug and was blackmailing him, and she was stronger and taller than he was. He feels humiliated.

Your sister says she was raped.

I suppose you could make the argument that the crimes were the same, if you did not care that the argument was mere sophistry. In reality, you need to go get a shotgun and kill the boy who raped your sister, or, if you live in a state civilized enough to have a death penalty, turn him over to the law for a quick trial and a slow hanging. Your brother, maybe you need to buy him a drink and lend him a sympathetic ear.

*waves hand in the air* I would!

Heck, I’d give up my vote just for the sake of it being taken away from all other women as well. Even if the vote actually really meant something, you know, like it’s supposed to. Women should not vote; they are too susceptible to emotion, and if men are the only ones voting on behalf of their whole households that should encourage them to take greater responsibility for the good of their entire households.

Girls are allowed to cry and cower, because it is cute, and we gentlemen are supposed to protect them.

But women and naturally less suited for war and conflict than men. If the vote were restricted solely to men, perhaps the public debate over public laws would make fighting wars and fighting crime its primary, or even its only, order of business. Perhaps all these other things, housecleaning the environment, mothering the poor, schoolmarming the schools, would be done privately, not by the government.

Perhaps if women did not vote, they could see to the environment, the schools, and the poor through the institutions of the Church, which are better suited to charitable activity and feminine compassion than the hard and harsh swords and balances of townhall.

For better or worse, reality is conservative. Because of this, drama in any form tends to be conservative: readers still enjoy reading love stories and heroic adventures. Hence a book like Harry Potter, which is based on archetypes as old as cave paintings — wise men with long gray beards, evil serpents, trusted comrades, the unloved orphan (who, like Hercules or Moses, is chosen by fate to slay monsters or evil lords and save his people) — is innately conservative.

It is no surprise that more leftists buy books, including fairytale books, for their children, and pass along their political viewpoints as well. Leftists already live in Cloudcuckooland, which is next door to fairyland.

I suggest that some enterprising political scientist perform a similar study for any book-reading of any kind, not just books about schoolboy wizards, or, indeed, any idle pastime whatsoever. Leftism is found more among idle folk whose mental immune system is weak: among teens, among university professors, and among everyone else who does not work for a living.

Now, when I was younger and more libertarian in thought, I thought Conservativism and Leftism were political postures. I thought politics included mutual compromise for mutual benefit.

Since 9/11, all that smoke has been blown out of my eyes. Leftism is not a political posture. It is a cross between a mental disease and a death-cult. The only way to prevent Churches from being sued under antidiscrimination laws, or to keep clerks issuing marriage licenses out of jail, is to prevent gay marriage. The only way to prevent gay marriage is to keep the anti-sodomy laws on the books.

The barbarian is either at your feet or at your throat. If the Left were civilized, they would be willing and able to live in peaceful mutual respect and mutual toleration with their neighbors. For psychological reasons that seem to me to be inescapable, the Left cannot be civilized. Because the deeds of men are evil, and so they love the darkness.

Not to put to finer a point on it, but of course being an atheist makes you stupid. It can’t not make you stupid if you try to take it seriously and not just half ass it the way the new atheist clowns do. Atheism implies a certain metaphysics about the world, this is unavoidable as the atheist cannot consistently hold to a metaphysics that logically concludes their is a creator.

As a result, with the thin and sub-standard metaphysics they are forced to embrace, they are forced to constantly deny things about that cannot fit and cannot exist.

The usual one they start denying is morality but when followed consistently, you need to deny, knowledge, mind, consciousness, reason, logic and ultimately even the idea of composite objects. Why they choose this part to nihilistic madness rather than embrace a generic theism (Deism cannot provide the metaphysical foundation either) is beyond me, but they do.

And so, confronted with a century of being driven back, step by step, failure by failure, the freethinkers in my generation, who still were capable of reason in the long lost days of my youth, had to abandon the last branch of the tree where atheism could hide. Rather than confess that the universe must have a creator, and that therefore miracles must exist, and that therefore the reports of miracles in the Gospel are not automatically incredible, the freethinkers preferred to go full postmodern, and deny that truth exists. The only way to defeat the one historical question and the three philosophical questions proving and supporting Christian belief as reasonable, was to go full stupid, and deny that truth was true.

I don’t care if Dr Carson is a creationist or not. Indeed, my opinion of creationism goes up every time I hear of a rocket scientist or brain surgeon who supports it.

For that matter, George Washington was a creationist, as were all educated and civilized men before Darwin erected his rather tenuous hypothesis that species can change characteristics to a point where they form a new species, intersterile with their parent species via an blind process called by the oxymoron ‘natural selection’ (which is to say, unplanned planning; undesigned design).

This theory is not widespread because it satisfies scientific rigor (it does not) but because it pretends to offer a satisfactory explanation for the origin of man that is naturalistic and non-theistic (it is not).

The fact that no scientific observation or experiment has ever confirmed this origin story for man makes it, as far as I am concerned, a dogma of faith taken on authority, but, unlike a religious dogma of faith, by hypothesis there is no authority on which to rely whose word we trust when he tells us it is by this means new species originate.

I don’t care if Dr. Carson thinks the pyramids of Egypt stored the grain of Joseph. I am deeply ashamed for our nation that our press put this matter before public attention, and that the public, including me, is wasting our time with it.

Do you object that I call it a myth? It is a myth. It is not science, it is not even scientific to believe in spontaneous creation of life from non life. Science is based on rational deduction from observations and predictions to confirm the deductions. Here, no observer saw or even has seen life emerge from non life. It cannot even be done deliberately, much less blindly by an natural process. If it were a natural process, we would see it going on around us at all times.

In short, I do claim that “all science is Christian science”.


So, can pagans do science? No, or yes only to the extent that they abandon pagan thinking and adopt Christian thinking, as the ancient Latin and Greek worlds did. What about heretics? Certainly they can, to the extent that they retain Christian thinking. A heretic is by definition a Christian of a sort, although the particular bent of a particular heresy might preclude it.

What about a post-Christian society, such as ours, or a never-Christian society such as Japan? It remains to be seen, I think, but the signs are not good so far.
