Gay Gene Discovered–Not Quite!

The science world is all a-buzz with talk of the discovery of a “gay gene.” Michael Balter of reports: A new study of male twins, scheduled for presentation at the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) in Baltimore, Maryland, today, could help explain that paradox. It finds that epigenetic effects, chemical modifications of the human genome that alter gene activity without changing the DNA sequence, may have a major influence on sexual orientation. The Read more […]

Study Predicts Earth Heading Into Mini Ice Age

A new study claims that sometime between 2030 and 2040, the sun’s energy cycles will cancel each other out and produce a mini ice age on planet Earth. So much for the science of global warming being settled. Professor Valentina Zharkova discussed the findings at a National Astronomy Meeting in Wales. So far, the new model has been producing more accurate predictions than was previously possible, according to the Daily Mail. Scientists have known for some time that the sun operates in 10- Read more […]

This is Your Brain on Pentagon-Funded Chips

With our country on the hook for more than $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities and the latest revenue-raising scheme, Obamacare, rapidly imploding, it’s comforting to know that our government is still capable of focusing on the basic needs of this country — like mind control. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency announced last week that it’s planning to spend $70 million over five years to develop brain implants. That’s brain “implants,” not brain “research.” The raison d’etre Read more […]

Science vs. Ethics: Researchers Remotely Control a Human

In a bit of whiz-bang science that may go down in history with the infamous “putting the criminal’s brain in the monster robot’s body” trick, University of Washington researchers have just demonstrated the ability to control a human being’s actions remotely. I know some of you think that such technology already exists and is used to control the puppet in the Oval Office, but this is apparently the first time such technology has been publicly admitted. Using Skype and a type of magnetic stimulation, Read more […]

Better Mars Than Obama’s America

Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids; in fact, it’s cold as hell, according to the song. But that hasn’t stopped people from wanting to go there because, let’s face it, Earth just isn’t that much fun anymore. Over 100,000 people from around the globe have applied to be part of the first one-way expedition to Mars in 2022. The Mars One trip aims to put four permanent settlers on the Red Planet, to be followed about a year later by another group of settlers. Although the applicants Read more […]

Stephen King Defends Intelligent Design

People can surprise you. Author Stephen King, known for such novels as “Carrie” and “Cujo,” defended the concept of intelligent design during a recent interview with NPR. He also talked about his belief in God and said that the universe is full of evidence of design but atheists are missing it. “I choose to believe it,” King said. “… I mean, there’s no downside to that. If you say, ‘Well, OK, I don’t believe in God, there’s no evidence of God,’ then you’re missing the stars Read more […]

Obama Appoints Himself as Scientist-In-Chief

Just when you think President Obama couldn’t possibly get any more preposterous, he has declared himself Scientist-in-Chief. The dollar has just been jettisoned as the de facto measure of currency in China and Australia,  we find ourselves on the brink of war with yet another mentally-challenged despot with delusions of grandeur, and are drowning in a leftist manufactured financial crisis. What action does the president think will counteract our financial woes and get America’s job situation Read more […]

Black Professor Melissa Harris-Perry Calls Pre-Born Baby ‘This Thing’

Melissa Harris-Perry described a pre-born baby as “this thing” that costs money when born, implying that it’s better to kill him or her rather than give birth. Here’s what she said on her MSNBC morning show: “But the reality is that if this [as she holds up a marble-sized object representing the fertilized egg] turns into a person, right, there are economic consequences, right? The cost to raise a child, $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year. When you’re talking about what it actually costs Read more […]

Does History Repeat Itself?

History is unpredictable. So says Nassim Taleb in his book, The Black Swan. This may seem to be a paradoxical statement at first because history, by definition, is an attempt to explain events after the fact. “Of course,” most astute readers would say, “history is unable to be predicted for the simple reason that it is not in the business of predicting, but of recording and analyzing.” Perhaps, but this misses Taleb’s point, which is, that “these [historical] events were unexplainable, Read more […]

American Psychological Association is Cuckoo for Gay Gay Puffs

At one time, homosexuality was considered to be a form of mental illness by the nation’s psychologists.  As more and more gays and lesbians began to come out of the closet and into the open, psychologists no longer looked at it as being a mental illness.  In fact, they no longer saw it as being wrong in any fashion. For the past couple of decades, psychologists have been trying to convince everyone that homosexuality is perfectly normal and that we should all accept gays with open arms.  Read more […]

Did the Sandy Hook Murderer Have an ‘Evil Gene’?

Britain’s Daily Mail is reporting that scientists “have been asked to search for an ‘evil’ gene in the DNA of Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old who killed his mother before he opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School, slaughtering 20 children and six adults. The study, which will be the first of its kind involving a mass murderer, will try to detect any abnormalities in Lanza’s individual DNA.” What’s the “normal” moral baseline in DNA given evolutionary assumptions of how we got Read more […]

Scientific Reason Why Guns Can’t be Banned

There’s new scientific research that explains why humans are adept at fighting. We evolved that way: “Why are our hands the shape that they are? Compared with those of other apes, the thumb is longer and the palms and fingers are short. . . . Researchers at the University of Utah have another suggestion: The hand is the shape that it is because it allows us to make a nice fist for fighting that protects key parts of the hand from harm.” Did you notice that the article describes humans as Read more […]
