Some say the internet is the cause of a dramatic increase in conspiracy theories. What is actually happening is that for the first time in history everybody has access to an amount of information unavailable even for many governments in the past. They find out how much they were deceived, and they are sounding off. […]

We are in a new era of professional politicians. Not professional in their ability to do the job, but in their ability to perpetuate themselves. Proof of this statement is that Donald Trump was elected because he said from the start he was not a politician. He succeeds because the professional politicians supported by their […]

Science historians say the Scientific Revolution began with Copernicus when he proposed the heliocentric system that the Earth orbits the Sun. I used to think it was not worth discussing because one in four Americans and one in three Russians think the opposite, namely the Ptolemaic view that it is an earth-centered, geocentric system.

Chinese philosophy describes the yin and yang as apparently opposing forces that are just as likely to be complementary. It applies to the claim that if you have God you must have a devil.

This […]

“It occurred to me…” Publius Cornelius was correct when he said the more corrupt the State, the more laws. A major reason the science isn’t settled is because the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) never practiced science. They didn’t even look at climate change, only the possible human causes of climate change. Now they […]

“It occurred to me…” that eventually all those people texting will eventually end up writing Shakespeare’s plays. The Province of Ontario is a classic example of the damage done by the false science of global warming and latterly climate change. The major response was to abandon traditional energy sources in favour of alternate energies and […]
