I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.

by Ian R Thorpe

Sunday morning is a lazy time for those who have no young children and no interest in religion. Every Sunday, in a slot that was for years occupied by a Christian religious program Mrs. T and I like to watch the wider discussion show that now fills that hour as we consume a leisurely breakfast. One thing that strikes me in these discussions is that the secular view is often represented by a "scientist" who labours under the misapprehension that all who participate in worship or do not subscribe to Marxist thinking are creationists. If this is not evidence that science has become a religion for these people then Einstein was a turnip. Read more below ...

I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.

Every time I see an article on most of the websites I visit that looks at evolution by Darwinian natural selection, though I might read it I am usually reluctant to comment. This is partly because I have found that people who have noticed my low opinion of Barack Obama both as a politician and a human being or are aware that my opinion of the coalition government in the UK is on a par with my view of the Labour government that preceded them, or that I regard the bureaucratic dictatorship that runs the E U as a bunch of neo Nazi world domination freaks usually attack me for these things or for my heresy in questioning the gospel of climate change. The left wing trolls have decided I am a right wing nut job, a young earth creationist and a supporter of the criminalisation of dark skin and the death penalty for unmarried mothers.

Although none of these things, I respect the right of the neo Nazis to hold such opinions of me even though they clearly do not respect mine to disagree with them. Ih of neo - Nazi world domination freakst seems because I used to post satiracal articles about the Bush administration a lot of people were absolutely sure that I would sign up for the whole package of Obama worship, science fundamentalism and an obsession with the human rights of everybody except people who are members of mainstream society.

Bizzarely the Obamessiah cult followers and the science evangelicals who are as convinced "the science is settled" on evolution as it was allleged to be on Anthropogenic Global Warming are, in spite of the shrieking denials, socialists. They support redistribution of wealth through taxation, socialised health care, the politicisation of education, the courts and public service, the suppression of individual freedom, particularly religious freedom, the imposition of quotas on the race, gender and sexuality of university entrants, people entering professions, the make up of corporate boards of directors, membership of elected bodies and as far as I know lottery winners. These people have been so busy levelling the playing field, nobody remembered to pick a team to face the opposition.

Far from revealing a Damascine conversion to creationism, my rejection of socialism and its same sex fuck - buddy political correctness serves to emphasise my commitment to evolutionary science.

In Origion of the Species Charles Darwin proposed that the living world as made up of competing beings, each struggling for survival and fighting over limited resources. The beings whether plants, animals, bacteria or other which do best at this struggle have more offspring than those which do worse, and so in the next generation of the same struggle, the traits which made them better suited are likely to be more common. From this simple insight, it becomes clear that any advantageous trait will spread throughout a population.

Add to that a method of introducing innovation in the natural world, that role is played by mutation and enough generations, and we have the most powerful tool for building complexity in the world, and it is completely unplanned, with every creature within it acting only in its own genetic interests.< /p>

Now that is fine in theory and I am not naive enough to believe the reality is that simple. But I do see a contradiction in those who claim very noisily to be evolutionists suddenly deciding that with the mergence of a certain political thinker or politician, human life is no longer governed by the evolutionary principles that brought us this far. These people think the societies, communities and social systems that have resulted from the evolutionary process must be trashed and replaced by new systems created by politicians and academics. Will the new, created systems work as well as the evolved ones?

While fanatically supporting Darwin's theory in biology many people on the political Left dislike the work of Darwin's counterpart in economics, Adam Smith, a liberal rather than a conservative. This is ironic, given that Smith was one of Darwin's chief inspirations.

Imagine you wanted to create a system that provided people with shirts as and when they needed them. The economist Paul Seabright puts it like this:

If there were any single person in overall charge of the task of supplying shirts to the world's population, the complexity of the challenge facing them would call to mind the predicament of a general fighting a war. One can imagine an incoming President of the United States being presented with a report entitled The World's Need for Shirts, trembling at its contents, and immediately setting up a Presidential Task Force. The United Nations would hold conferences on ways to enhance international cooperation in shirt-making, and there would be arguments over whether the UN or the US should take the lead. The Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury would issue calls for everyone to pull together to ensure that the world's needs were met, and committees of bishops and pop stars would periodically remind us that a shirt on one's back is a human right. The humanitarian organization "Couturiers Sans Frontires" would airlift supplies to sartorially-challenged regions of the world.

In reality, millions of unplanned, selfish actions ensure the world is shirted. When you think about it, this is something of a miracle in itself. The fact that we can go out and buy a shirt, without any sort of planning, requires the coordination of people in India to grow the cotton; people in Portugal to make the artificial fibres; people in six other countries to make the dyes; people in Brazil to make the collar linings; people in Germany to make the machinery, and people in Malaysia to put the whole lot together. It's a process that takes more than two years from the cotton-seeds being planted, and the planning the work of engineers, chemists, designers and so on had gone on for some time before that. Probably around twenty million people will probably decide without any assistance or prompting from politicians, academics or public servants who make up big government to buy a shirt on any given day, Seabright estimates.

What drives this? It's Darwinism, pure and simple. The only difference is that instead of competing for calories and mates, they are competing for money and customers. A cotton-grower who is able to sell better quality or lower price cotton will be able to take over more of the market than his rivals; rival cotton-growers will adapt or die, and his methods or competing ones will spread throughout the population of cotton-growers. Apply the same principles throughout the process and it becomes clear that nobody needs a helping hand from government, no scientists or accountants paid from the public purse needed to plan or design photosynthesis, and none were needed to spread the logistics of evolution through the population, analogously as the process to grow a gene for sharper teeth or better photosynthesis spreads through a biological population. No one plans anything yet the situation continually gets better.

Nobody would say this Darwinian approach to supply and demand also known as the free market is perfect. It self-evidently isn't. For a start, it's wildly unfair (but as I am always saying, when is life ever fair?); in the shirt example above, worldwide, millions can't afford shirts at all, while others could have theirs hand-made out of spun gold if they choose. It is also capable of being corrupted: if one "organism" in the market gets too big, it can take over an entire level of the food chain, stopping all the competition that keeps prices low and production efficient. The same thing happens if producers form a cartel, preventing the Darwinian market model from working as it should.

The key difference between biological evolution and economic free markets is that the free market has taxes, and monopoly regulations, and laws of fair trading, and all the other tools of government that can be used to stop runaway Darwinism. The Lion can eat the antelope, the bird can gobble up the worm but in a well governed democracy the global corporations should not be able to destroy small, independent businesses. Large companies can be broken up; cartels punished; welfare systems can be put in place to provide a safety net for those life is extremely unfair to The job of government has to be to do its best to align the interests of individuals with the interests of society not to control the lives of individuals and the activities of business. Anyone who thinks science can improve on nature or government can improve on the efforts of individuals who are free to collaborate has no business calling themselves either a liberal or an evolutionist.

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
