America and Creationism

There was a video that is getting a LOT of attention right now floating around YouTube.  In it, famous science celebrity, Bill Nye, has his opinion about a trend in America.

Denial of evolution is unique to the United States.

He’s got a very good point.  6 in 10 American do not believe in the Theory of Evolution.  For those who will come at us saying that it is just a theory, you need to understand the definition of a theory.  A lot of people confuse this with a hypothesis.  A hypothesis is when you have an idea about why something is, but have no proof for it, and you mean to test it.  A theory, on the other hand, is something that has been tested and has proof.  So why not call it a law?  Well, while there can be laws of physics, there cannot be laws of science.  We know so little about how the universe truly works that there is no way that we could say that evolution is a law.  We have a mountain of scientific evidence for it, so it is true, yet we cannot say that it is a law because there is always a chance that it could be proven wrong.

But, even with the mountains of evidence that exist for the theory of evolution, 6 out of 10 people in this country believe that it is not true.  So, what do they believe?  Well, in America, the bulk of them believe that a celestial being, either called God, Jehovah, or Yahweh created all the things in the universe.  It took seven days, and it wasn’t millions or billions of years ago, it was thousands of years ago.

They call this “creationism.”  Now, many will deny that, saying that the theory of creationism (which is there word for it.  There is NO proof of this) is that a being, an unnamed being, created the universe.  Or rather, could have.  But which being?  The Christian God?  Well, if that is the case, then your position becomes much, MUCH, more complicated.

For one thing – there is absolutely NO scientific evidence that suggests that the universe is only 10 or however many thousand years old.  The Theory of Evolution has a mountain of evidence, yet 6 out of 10 people believe in a story about the universe coming into being that has no evidence at all.

Another thing – if the “theory” goes that the universe was created, and we are going to say that this theory has proof, then which being?  Was it the Christian God?  Was it the Jewish God?  Was it Allah?  Was it Vishnu?  Was it Ra?  If they are going to try and prove that this universe was created by a heavenly being that left no evidence for its existence, how can you prove that it wasn’t another heavenly being that did it?  Through the course of human history, there have been countless religions and countless stories about the creation of life on Earth.  How can you prove one without proving another?

Bill Nye went on to say that if people wanted to believe that this world came to be from a heavenly being, and not through a process that has a mountain of evidence, that’s fine.  But the problem comes when people are trying to get that taught in classrooms.

Let’s be plain, here – this is not science.  Creationism is a theory in the same way that a tomato is a vegetable.  It simply isn’t.  There is no evidence for it.  But a very solid amount of people in this country want this “theory” to be taught in classrooms.  Well, that is just plain nuts.  Something that has absolutely zero basis in science doesn’t deserve to be in a scientific classroom, and anybody who thinks that they can argue that it does have a place there should see the previous problems.

There is no evidence of a holy being of any kind existing.  All secular evidence that exists about the universe shows that this universe is billions of years old, not thousands.  All secular evidence holds that life on this Earth did not get created at the same time, with humans playing on a swing hanging from a Brontosaurus.  It gradually evolved and changed over time.

Bill Nye is absolutely right.  Creationism has no place in schools.  And if we are teaching our kids that it is okay to ignore science, ignore evidence, and ignore facts, then what kind of future could they possibly have?  America is getting left behind by the rest of the industrialized world.

It amazes me that we don’t get it.

Poor Bristol Palin…:(

Well, after her post talking about how the President decided to support gay marriage simple because of his daughters, and saying that same-sex couples aren’t as good at being parents as opposite-sex couples (of which no evidence exists), Bristol Palin has come out with a new post talking about how she is the victim of “bullying.”

Much like how all interactions with a statement by the Palin family have gone from the beginning of their time in the limelight, it wasn’t hard to predict that this was the direction that it was going to take.  It has been the Palin family’s modus operandi to make a horribly unpleasant statement, and then, when the people come out against this, to make it all about themselves, and how they are the victims.

Bristol’s post about the president and gay marriage is textbook example of this strategy.  Here is what Bristol had to say –

Well, I stirred up a hornet’s nest.  You know you’ve struck a nerve when even J-Woww tweets insults at you.  But the thing that most amazes me is how few people actually addressed the points I made in my recent blog post.  They were pretty simple.  Conservative women like my mom get grief because people think they can’t make decisions without their husband, but Barack Obama gets applauded for changing his mind on a huge issue after consulting his wife and young daughters. The double standard amazes me.

Gee, Bristol, if you look at my previous post, you will see that I, along with many others like the YouTube vlogger Zinnia Jones, did address your argument, and were very clear with our problems with them.  We told you that President Obama didn’t just come to this decision because of talking with his wife and daughters.  It was a personal choice based on years of his experience.  Apparently, you didn’t catch that.  Your move.

But I’m not a pundit.  I’m just a mom made famous in one of the most intense and embarrassing ways possible – by having your teen pregnancy announced in the middle of a presidential campaign.

I put this section of her post here because there is something I want to draw attention to – your hypocrisy.  You had your pregnancy announcted on national television by your mother.  She whored out you and your down-syndrome brother in order to further her own political agenda.  I find it incredible that you are so on her side and yet you don’t feel the slightest inclination to point out that all of this “bullying” that you are claiming happens to you is directly tied into your mother using you and your entire family as a stage prop.  The hypocrisy just leaps off the page, doesn’t it?  Your move.

 When you’re in Hollywood you’ll meet some great people, some terrible people, and many somewhere in between.  In other words, they’re people just like everyone else.  But what you won’t find is any disagreement about things like gay marriage or abortion.  For those folks, there’s one way to think, and anyone who disagrees is stupid, hypocritical, hateful, or bigoted.

Sorry, Bristol, but you’re wrong again.  You are called hypocritical, hateful and bigoted because you made statements that are hypocritical, hateful and bigoted.  Saying that children are more likely to be happy in a home with a mother and father is bigoted.  You can’t explain that away, sorry.  You have to answer for it.  Your unwillingness to doesn’t surprise me in the least.

She puts up a graphic showing some of the angry comments she got, and yeah, they are unpleasant and people shouldn’t make them, but once-again, the strategy that you use is pretty clear – don’t make this about the issues, make this about yourself.  And here’s the kicker, Bristol – you are not special.  Go onto most any video about President Obama and you’ll see plenty of hate and vitriol thrown at him from people.  Hate statements are the name of the game with a large part of this country against the LGBT community.  Go onto a Zinnia Jones video and you may just find some lovely tidbits about how awful that person is.  Or click on an Amazing Atheist video and you will see plenty of disparaging comments.  While all of these are stupid and pointless, they are also not unusual.

Instead of defending your point of view, and making this about the issues, you instead retreat to the easiest option you have – making this about yourself.  It has been the way your mother has defended her scorn for years, and you are following in the same vein.  Feel proud of yourself, Bristol.  Those are some big and hypocritical shoes to fill.

Here’s the real truth – you don’t know who the real bullies are.  The people who are using their national fame that you acknowledge you have in order to make sweeping generalizations about a group of people and their love.  The people who are saying that children aren’t going to be happy with same sex parents.  The people who want to deny LGBT couples the right to marry simply by invoking “tradition,” and continuing the cultural stigma against them through the same way.  The people who are making no argument, but instead want to make this entire thing about themselves and paint themselves as the victim of some kind of bullying, while they are spreading intolerance and lies for no good reason.

The bully, Bristol Palin, is you.  Plain and simple.

The Over-Saturated Existence

Take a look around the modern culture.  What do you see?  Well, it depends on where you are, and what kind of lifestyle you have.  If you are like me, than as you are reading this, you probably have music on in the background.  There will also be a chat window or two that occasionally interrupts your reading in order to answer.  But it’s all good.  You will get through the document.  But wait, what about that stomach that’s growling?  Gotta answer that.  And when you do, you get a text message.  Hell, you may get text messages even while reading this, along with the chat windows, your Facebook (obviously), and that music, or maybe the TV, or perhaps a movie.

If you have a family, the number of places that your mind is at probably triples.  You are reading this, watching your kids, talking to your significant other (unless you’re a single parent, in which case, you may be talking to yourself.  Good for you!  Talking to yourself is fun), getting up every now and again to check on dinner, have a couple chat windows open, get text messages on your cell phone, stopping the kids from fighting, or maybe also having a movie on in the background.  Try Ratatouille.  That usually makes kids happy.

If you are work, first off, shame on you.  You should be working.  But yeah, you will be reading this, doing your job, getting text messages, probably talking with coworkers, looking up the news, following documents online that pertain to what you are doing, may also have music in the background, or could potentially be watching a movie.  Wow, if you are doing that, then you really are a slacker.

But that is the culture we live in.  It is a culture that is constantly bombarded by information.  The human mind multi-tasks like never before.  There have been several articles that are coming out about how adults don’t mature like they used to.  This new hyper-saturated market of information ahs created a generation of people who retain their childhood mental status longer and longer.  There is a radical paradigm shift in the human race, and very few people are noticing it.

When you think about it – there’s a reason that people are sucking down booze and anti-depressant pills these days.  The human just isn’t wired for the amount of multi-tasking that we do.  The idea that somebody can live simply is gone.  It is unlikely to ever come back.  The reason is simple – the culture has created this.

We live in a culture that says that the pursuit of the almighty dollar bill.  If you are unable to make them, you don’t survive.  You are trampled and crushed in a world that has the tall lording over the small.  There was a quote by the late George Carlin about our modern society –

That’s the way the ruling class operates in any society.  They try to divide the rest of the people.  They keep the lower and middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money.

Before you bring it up, I don’t care about that word you want to mention in my intellectual piece that is this.  That’s not a bad word.  It’s a versatile word.  But the fact is that the powerful want to keep the people below them fighting, along with distracted, so that they won’t question, so that they won’t have the ability to usurp their power.

Academics and intellectuals will talk about this and that, but the ultimate truth is that the societal failure of right now has been engineered by the upper class in order to control everybody else.  Mass-media, social networking, endless advertisements.  It’s all about control.

Go onto YouTube someday, and you’ll see something kind of sad – the academic videos, the really intelligent and thoughtful ones, they get almost no significant amount of views.  While imbeciles pouring alcohol in their eyes and lighting them on fire have millions of views.  This is the society that we live in.  The media is saturated with stupidity, and intellect gets no significant amount of attention.

It’s no wonder that the American public is stupid.  They are being bombarded, day in and day out with advertisements, updates, a chat windows.

So what is the solution?  Well, this is where there is no exact answer.  Some say to go back to the simpler times.  To go and seek out this older way of being.  Others say that it is in not looking at as much media.  If you want this humble idealists views, it resides in getting rid of the need for money.  The drive for money, instead of the drive for progress, is what is destroying our species.  People don’t just want to succeed.  They are desperate for success because if they don’t get it, they rot away.  It’s a cruel existence that is fueled by those in power.

But maybe that is being WAY too idealistic for this world.

America’s Government is Old

People can argue until they are blue in the face about it being a left thing or a right thing, but the fact is that it is not.  What is wrong this this country can be seen in what is happening in Congress right now.  It has been going on since the beginning of the Internet, and it can be seen in perfect clarity at this very moment.  So, what’s wrong with this country – the government is old.

Nowhere is this problem more visible than with the battle for SOPA and PIPA.  It is all over the internet today.  Google and Wikipedia are blacking out their pages to protest it.  If they were smart, Facebook and Twitter would have joined the fight.  If you want people to fight against these two acts, deny people their Facebook.  It would be a fury of anger at the government.  But alas, it is still a good fight that has been done on the behalf of this battle that all of the internet is firmly on one side.

But it is a sign too about how this government is.  It is very, very old.  What’s more is that the age is starting to show, and it is getting to be a real problem for the people in this country who are becoming more politically aware.

Over the last ten years, technology has changed everything.  As more and more people are becoming connected online, the cultural values and the like that have dominated society are eroding away.  Culture is becoming one online.  The online communities are growing every day.  Technology has linked our world together the way nothing ever has before.  It is an amazing time to be alive.

The problem is that while the technology is becoming a river of discovery and growth, the government of this country is behind.  This government is living in the 20th Century.  There is proof like no other when you look at how things are being handled right now.

At the end of the 90’s, things were great for this country.  Our economy was on top of the world, and there were no signs that things were going to go wrong.  Not on the surface, anyway.  Our government, especially the Republican side of the fence, keeps wanting to go back to that.  They don’t seem to realize that we can never go back to that.

The reasons are simple – everything has changed since 1999.  The world is a 100% different place than it was at the end of the century.  The Internet has changed business in this world forever.  Technology has changed the way people live their lives.  The economy dramatically failing has changed the opportunities this country has.  And most of all, the demographics have drastically changed.

Other nations have figured this out, and have taken steps to change with the times.  Europe has invested in infrastructure.  While many nations are in bad shape, many others are holding strong.  They have an up-to-date transit system, universal health care, a national wireless service.  They aren’t investing the way America is in war and bad business practices, along with deregulation.  They are embracing the future of technology.  Some nations quicker than others, but America is going next to nowhere in a big hurry.

Asia is really coming into its own too.  Japan is looking to be coming out of the economic slump that it has been in for the last twenty years.  China is rapidly expanding their economic power.  South Korea has the largest wireless network on the face of the planet, universal health care, and they are doing very well.

Even our friends close to home are doing pretty good.  Canada is holding strong.  They have some problems, but they are holding out.  Meanwhile, America is falling into a grave of economic failure.  This country is headed in the wrong direction again, and fast.

We haven’t learned that the way we are doing business isn’t working.  The reason we haven’t learned that, in my opinion, is because our nation’s congress is too old.  We have an old guard, and they want to do things the way that they have always been done.  But as we have seen, that system is no longer palatable.  The times have changed, and we have to change with them.  But the old guard is looking to keep things the way they always were.

And the old guard doesn’t stop at the government.  The people who run the corporations aren’t figuring it out either.  SOPA and PIPA are the result of the media industry not wanting things to change.  Never mind that what they call “piracy” has changed the shape of business forever.  Napster opened the flood-gates of a new way of doing business, and it has changed the face of business not just in America, but across the globe.

That’s the really ugly part of SOPA and PIPA.  They wouldn’t just hurt business here in America, but across the globe.  It would effectively kill the internet.  It would destroy the livelihoods of thousands, maybe millions of people.  Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Yahoo, all of those sites would be gone in a day.  Because these acts aren’t targeted, like the DMCA was.  These are a nuclear weapon, because the media industry has realized that this isn’t going to be stopped.  The technology is going to grow and change things even more.

There is hope, though.  There are signs that the old guard is being fought against.  The Occupy movement has shown that the young guard is growing, and they are tired of things staying the way they are.  They know what I know – that things can be better, if we change the way we do things.

For 50 years, deregulation and “free market” has been the mantra.  We’re now seeing that that isn’t going to work anymore.  America isn’t the massive growing market.  We have stopped our growth spurt.  Now things have to change.  And the youth are getting active.  However, more needs to happen.  We have to elect younger leaders with an eye for changing things.  These old men and women who run Congress are driving us into the ground.

So, what’s your next move?

Peace out,

Rick Santorum vs. Sex

A recent article in Salon magazine kind of spells out a lot of what is happening right now in this country.  The pro-life movement has always said that they are against abortion.  They want to preserve life (how many of them eat meat?).  But that argument is really falling by the waist-side when you think about it.

With new prescriptions being made, like the Morning-After Pill, Plan-B, and emergency contraceptions of all kinds, the fact is that with modern pharmaceuticals, it is getting so that abortions are less and less necessary.  One would think that this would slow down the anti-choice (pro-life) activists, right?  If there are no abortions happening, how can this be a problem?

In the article mentioned above, it talks about how Rick Santorum, the presidential candidate who came in only eight votes behind Romney is against birth control.  All birth control.  Here’s a quote from the man himself –

One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country.

Add to that quote (from the article) –

Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s okay, contraception is okay. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.

So, how are things supposed to be?  That’s an easy question to answer, when looking at Santorum’s religious affiliation.  He is a hardcore and old-school Catholic.  This means that he is one of the Catholic crowd who believe that any sex that isn’t missionary and for the express purpose of procreation is wrong.  It is a telling sign of something that the pro-choice crowd doesn’t think about nearly enough.

It’s not enough that anti-choice individuals are against abortion.  That at least makes a modicum of sense.  As Bill Maher said –

I get that, I just don’t agree with it.

But this isn’t that.  In fact, the disturbing part seems to be that the more options that are created to prevent having women to have to go through an abortion, the louder the opposition becomes.  The question is – why?  To answer it for Santorum, one must, unfortunately, look to his holy book.

According to Genesis 38: 8-10, the story goes that a man named Onan had a brother, but the brother died before he could bear offspring.  In accordance with tradition, it was customary for the brother to have sex with his brother’s widow.  However, when in the act of intercourse, he pulls out from her, and his “seed” fell to the ground.  Of course, God got angry (he does that a lot) and struck the man down for his actions.  Now, thanks to that verse, the Catholic church is of the mind that no sperm must be wasted.  All sex must result in reproduction.

This brings us back to the current situation with Santorum.  He is against all forms of contraception, even in the case of married couples.  For real, if a couple doesn’t want to have kids, too bad!  Not only is this non-sensical, but it is also wrong.

But one just has to ask – why?  What possible good comes from this kind of ideology?  This is more evidence that religion and state mixing always has negative consequences.  Now we have a Presidential candidate who wants to get rid of any and all possible ways of practicing safe sex.

And the worst part is that he isn’t done there.  There was a quote from Dan Savage on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

One of the things I’m constantly reminding people about Rick Santorum is that he doesn’t merely have an anti-gay agenda, he has an anti-straight agenda too.

Santorum is against gay marriage, against all forms of abortion (even in the case of rape and incest.  Who knows, crazy as he is, maybe against saving the life of the mother too), against pornography.  This guy is against sex.  He is totally against sex.  This is a problem, and it needs to be addressed, because the bigger societal question becomes – how did this guy get into public office?  How did he become so powerful?  How do people this deranged acquire so much political status?

America, we can do better, and we need to.  Now, there is no doubt in anybody’s mind that Santorum isn’t going to win the primaries.  He is too extreme for the majority of Republicans and right-leaning moderates.  But this needs to be addressed.

We need to save our rights to have sex.  Sex is fun.  Protect it.  Otherwise, we may not have any choices.

Peace out,

Lefty’s Voice: Save the Internet!

There are times in history when a person is required, even if they hate politics, to rise above and beyond the call of duty.  There are times when a person is required to do more than what they had done before.  This is one of those times, because this goes far beyond the world of politics.  It affects the freedoms of each and every one of us!  It affects all of America, and will not only destroy business, but also put our people in bondage.  I am, of course, talking about the Protect IP Act and SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).

On the surface, both of these acts sound, honestly, dumb.  Piracy is a good thing.  This has been proven.  Without online piracy, websites like Hulu, Netflix, and iTunes would never have evolved.  Napster opened the floodgates on something that is universal – the pursuit of cheap entertainment.  And it has been good business all over the place.  It did bring down the record companies, but they were monopolizing music.  Piracy has changed the world for the better and for always.

However, it is absolutely clear that this is nothing more than a ploy against the freedoms that people have.  With these new bills, websites that are perfectly legal under the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) will face legal threats.  YouTube vloggers and channels that put up clips from the news (which is perfectly within the real of Fair Use) will be the first to be censored.  And to prevent any legal action, websites will deliberately block anything that could be construed as violations.

It also goes further.  If just a few links that infringe on these new rules are posted, an entire website can be blocked.  So those who like watching YouTube, that could be blocked.  Reddit, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, any and all of them can be blocked completely.  To protect themselves, websites will automatically self-censor more, preventing startups from launching.  Websites will no longer be able to count on the DNS (Domain Naming System) for security, which was working just fine before.

And if you are a person who posts your own music, you can be sent to jail!  That’s right, if you aren’t licensed to put your music online, you can be sent to jail as a felon.  So independent musicians who post links on Facebook, you could be sent to jail!  Any non-commercial user can be charged with a felony for posting things online.

Since the day when I was able to pay attention, it was resoundly clear that this government hates the First Amendment.  They hate it.  They hate the people can do what they want and tell the government that they are dead wrong.  They have always hated it.  I wonder very much what the Founding Fathers were thinking when they wrote the Constitution.  They must have either been incredibly ignorant, or incredibly wise.  Because at this very moment, their dream of a free nation is about to die.

It is being supported by everybody.  SOPA has 21 Democratic supporters, 16 Republic supporters, and 1 Independent supporter in the Senate, while the Protect IP Act has 7 Democratic supporters, and 16 Republican Supporters in the House.  These people are totally fine with throwing the First Amendment in the trash.  And the mainstream media isn’t covering this!  I haven’t heard one damn story on MSNBC, CNN, or Fox about this.  Only the independent media is talking about this, and the talk is very small.  It seems like this huge affront to the Constitution might just happen and nobody outside of those who are paying attention will know about it.

Companies like the ones who own Reddit Tumblr, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, and many others are fighting back against this.  There are a number of activist groups.  The YouTuve vlogger community has jumped on the bandwagon, from both sides of the sociological and political fence.  There are multiple links that are aiding in the fight against the destruction of the First Amendment, but we need YOUR help!  We need everybody.  I will provide links to opinions and to ways you can fight back.

The vote has happened, and it has only been to delay.  There is still time to make yourself heard!  We must rise above and beyond the call of duty now, right now!  This is the only chance we are going to get!  I think I’ll end this with a quote,

Americans are about to lose their online freedoms

It has never really been a mystery that those in power hate the First Amendment of our Constitution.  If the government’s reaction to those who are Occupying all over the country has shown anything, if the coordination of their attack against them yesterday was any indication, then it is clear that those who we charged with protecting our rights hate that we have rights.  They hate that we are able to talk back to them.  They hate that we are able to tell them that they are wrong, damn wrong!  And now, it is looking like those in power are going to take away our right to tell them that they are wrong.

There is a new Bill that is being debated in Congress that will censor the internet.  Care to know how it works?  Well, it’s simple.  This new bill will allow the US government to be able to block people from visiting certain websites, like Tumblr, Reddit, YouTube, and others.  Also, things that were in “fair use” will be banned.  Nothing like this has ever happened before.  Laws have been proposed before to make this kind of thing happen, but this is the first time it has ever gotten this close.

This censorship will employ the same methods that are used in China, Syria, Iran, and other nations.  So this means that sites that you visit daily can be blocked.  Email sites will be forced to censor what you send or receive.  Any and all links you post on social networking sites will be monitored and possibly sensored.  The Bills that are going to destroy the First Amendment are as follows – the Protect IP Act, sponsored by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt), and the Stop Online Piracy Act, sponsored by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tx).

Here’s the facts – our basic internet freedoms are on the chopping black.  This is no joke, ladies and gentlemen.  These two laws are going to, in effect, censor what we see, and what we can do online.  It is proof like no other that not only does this government hate the First Amendment, it has always hated it.  It has always hated that people can do whatever they like.

I implore you to fight back.  You have to stand up and fight now, because if you don’t, tomorrow may not be free anymore.  All of us may be in bondage to the system.  Here are some links that can help you get out and fight the good fight –  http://www.tumblr.com/protect-the-net, http://www.reddit.com/r/announcements/comments/me5e9/. Ladies and gentlemen, we have to stand tall, right now, because if we don’t, it is looking more and more likely that all of us will be servants to the system.  The companies that own the websites of Tumblr and Reddit have already gotten the fight started, but it will take each and every one of us getting up and fighting back to stop this, because the government has shown their true colors.  They are not, and have never been, on the side of the people.  Now they need to know who we are.

Peace out,

Lefty
