Another free thinker is to be executed in Iran in the coming days

Carbon Chastity

By Charles Krauthammer, The Washington Post

I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’m a global warming agnostic who believes instinctively that it can’t be very good to pump lots of CO2into the atmosphere but is equally convinced that those who presume to know exactly where that leads are talking through their hats.

Loyalty to Self Over Country

Like it or not, the reality is that we live in an extremely self-centered society. If you take issue with this statement just watch how pedestrians enter into crosswalks during rush hour. Ignoring that pedestrians only have the right of way when they are within the crosswalk, today’s bipeds don’t hesitate at all to walk directly in front of moving vehicles, expecting to be protected from trauma by their imagined “right” to occupy a space versus a 4,000lbs vehicle. While this example illustrates how being self-centered – or arrogant…or vacuous – can cause personal harm, these same character flaws can cause harm to the country.

Peter Singer and Human Dignity

Whenever the fervent advocate of infanticide Peter Singer finds enough leisure time to muse upon any current moral issue, he invariably reserves enough space to declare his perpetual enmity against the proverbial thorn in his flesh that the Christian Religion has become.

Sexualizing Little Girls is Art?

What would you say about photos of naked children—most of them girls as young as 13—holding each other or by themselves in pensive poses? Would you imagine it to be thoughtful art,  or would your first thought be that it seemed like uncomfortable porn? Would you think it just a beautiful expression of humanity, or would you get a vague feeling that someone is getting his jollies from these pictures and it might be the so-called artist. And would it seem like a celebration or exploitation of children?

CFP Identifies Lockerbie Secret Doc

Last year, the SCCRC granted the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing a second appeal on the basis that his conviction may have been unsafe. Among the grounds justifying the decision, the Committee stated that the Crown had not given the defense access to a secret document which may be vital to establish the innocence of Megrahi.

The Westminster Government, not the Lord Advocate, has imposed a Public Interest Immunity certificate in order to prevent the defense to see the very document which justifies the second appeal in the first place.

Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: Sacrifices to the Climate Gods - Beware Lieberman-Warner

Excerpt: Now, the Senate is preparing to debate the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act, which aims to limit carbon-dioxide emissions in the belief that more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is disrupting the Earth’s climate and ecosystems. Since we now have the scientific method, we rely on computer models to predict these future catastrophes rather than on our fears and prejudices.
