The Idiocy of So-Called Modern Science…

One can only hope that the title of the ‘news’ article ‘Creativity older than thought’ was intended as a bad pun. Otherwise, well… In any case, the article goes on to claim that due to the discovery of very early forms of jewelry, the ‘modern’ mind as we know it must’ve existed for a much longer time than scientists have previously assumed. Now… I have no doubt at all that the ‘modern’ mind a) is a mis-nomer, and b) has existed much longer than scientists would ever dare think…However, the logic of the argument elaborated in the article is just pathetic. Examine, for instance, this quotation: “If people were using beads, they were using them to convey a message about themselves,” Professor Stringer said. “I believe that implies there was language, which does much the same thing.” – The...

This is just a quick refresher, since memory seems to be in short supply. When the World Trade Center in New York went down, killing around 3,000 people – the reactions in Tehran, Iran were as follows: The Iranians, over 1 million of them, were on the streets of Tehran, holding a candle-light vigil for the people who had died. Yes, that’s the 2nd time I say ‘people’, not ‘Americans’, because, really, that’s what they were. To most people, I think – that’s what they were…people; husbands, wives, sons and daughters. Compare this with the footage of Mr. Bush, days afterwards, standing in the midst of the rubble. Again, the smug look on the face, a man about to break into a smirk. A man who sees nothing but opportunity, a man high on the rising post-disaster approval ratings, a man who at the time this picture was taken, already...

You’d think their voices would be better heard. In any case – here’s an interesting read: Military Men Who Oppose Neo-Con Warmongering Under Attack Is anybody listening? Or is everybody too busy defending Rumsfeld? A man who claimed to accept ‘full responsibility’ for the tortures and abuses of Abu Ghraib and who yet, somehow, mysteriously, is still a free man? Here we are.

“Veteran journalist John Pilger recently wrote about one of PNAC’s founding members, Richard Perle: “I interviewed Perle when he was advising Reagan, and when he spoke about ‘total war,’ I mistakenly dismissed him as mad,” Pilger wrote. “He recently used the term again in describing America’s ‘war on terror.’ ‘No stages,’ he said. ‘This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq . . . this is entirely the wrong way to go about it. If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely and we don’t try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war . . . our children will sing great songs about us years from now.’ ”” – America Pearl...

Anybody know why Rumsfeld won’t sign this letter? Seems simple enough, no?
