Rock Video Illustrates Nihilism of Evolution

first_imgSenseless sex.  Mass death.  Religious hypocrisy.  Moral equivalence.  Impersonality.  Irresponsibility.  Male aggression, abduction and murder.  Glorification of lust.  Book burning.  Assembly-line babies.  Dehumanization.  Terrorism.  Holocaust.  Armageddon.  It’s all illustrated with raw intensity in the Pearl Jam rock video, Do the Evolution, available on YouTube.com.1  Evolution wipes out humanity, without remorse, in just 3:53 minutes.  Watch it only if you dare.1Do the Evolution, from the Pearl Jam album Yield (1998).  Background information on the production is presented on Wikipedia, which also lists the lyrics.  The song got a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1998, and this particular video was nominated for a Grammy for Best Music Video; it is also on the Pearl Jam DVD, Touring Band 2000.  This year, the music video has been uploaded 82 times by subscribers on YouTube, and has been rated five stars and a favorite of all time by many of them.  Researchers may want to study the comments of young people who say “really cool” and “LOVE this vid” and express many of the same antisocial feelings.WARNING:  This video is filled with intense and disturbing images and screaming rock.  Not suitable for children and definitely jarring to anyone.  Its value is in shocking the remaining sensible and civil adults among us to the reality of what evolutionary nihilism is doing to our world (see 08/23/2006 entry).*    Entertainers (if that term fits here) can sometimes communicate things with an intensity beyond logic and facts.  The phantasmagoria of horror in this video is clearly shown to be mere acting out of the beast within us, from which we all emerged as bacteria long ago, according to the dominant “scientific” theory of human origins taught as fact in our schools without alternatives.  As a consequence of this world view, bombing millions of people is no different than a little girl stepping on an anthill.  There’s no responsibility, no moral consequences, no worries.  It all makes perfect nonsense when you do the evolution.    We’d like to see the Richard Dawkinses and E. O. Wilsons of this era comment on this video.  Let them try to disown it and explain to Pearl Jam fans around the world that this is not what gentle old Father Charlie intended when he unleashed his little bombshell book to the world.  Let them explain why this kind of world view is not a logical extension of evolutionary theory.  Any comments, Eugenie Scott?  Ken Miller?  Are you proud of this?  Where is the ADL now?  Where is NOW now?  All you Tolerance people, your silence is deafening.    Clergymen accustomed to speaking lovey-dovey platitudes to gently smiling seniors and soccer moms should be forced to watch this video before standing in their pulpits this weekend and facing the young people in the pews, who probably consider this number just ordinary fare from the grunge rock rage of the late 1990s, and pretty cool animation: “I’ll do what I want, but irresponsibly / It’s evolution, baby / I’m a thief / I’m a liar / That’s my church; I sing in the choir… I crawled the earth, but now I’m higher / Twenty-ten, watch it go to fire / It’s evolution, baby / It’s evolution, baby / Do the evolution / Come on, come on, come on!”  How about showing that in your church for Evolution Sunday, all you liberal pastors who signed allegiance to Charlie? (see 02/11/2006).  Invite Elie Wiesel to enjoy it with you (02/28/2006, 09/19/2005).    Pearl Jam, just one band of a whole genre of grunge rock, gets thousands of screaming admirers on its world tours with its brand of sermon preaching hate and meaninglessness.  If this does not send a man of God to his knees, nothing will.Some may relegate this kind of expression to normal youth rebelliousness and criticism of authority and hypocrisy, combined with shock value for publicity.  Some may think it was just a satire on evolution without really taking it seriously, or was actually a criticism of evolutionism.  That doesn’t seem to be the case from the Wikipedia analysis: “The video begins with the evolution of life, from the smallest cell to the extinction of dinosaurs and reign of homo sapiens,” it says matter-of factly; “The video evolves into depicting human beings in violent yet historically true scenes.”    In other words, any intended message against violence is swamped by the assumption that evolution shows the true history of the world as one of violence and extinction, one species devouring another, for millions of years.  What humans have done to each other, and might do, is all in character with evolution.  On what basis could or should they do anything else?  Do the evolution, indeed.    The album was apparently inspired by Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, an evolution-based novel with an overt Malthusian, anti-JudeoChristian message that has a cult following of its own.  It’s remarkable how much of this cult includes an obsessive hatred of Genesis.    The fans get the message, too.  Consider that the Columbine High School massacre (see Wikipedia) occurred only a few months after this album was released, and one of the young killers wore a T-shirt proclaiming “Natural Selection.”  The Wikipedia article includes a quote from their diary expressing nihilistic rage very similar to that in the Pearl Jam song – again, with NATURAL SELECTION, in all caps, the centerpiece. Wake up, people.  This is deadly serious.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

More Penitence Needed Toward Our Neanderthal Brethren

first_img(Visited 381 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Evolutionists acknowledge changing views toward Neanderthals, but they fall short of apology for fake science.Mingling with Neanderthals (Current Biology). Michael Gross gives a wimpy answer to the mistakes evolutionists have made about ‘Neanderthal Man’ in the past, saying, “the story of what was once described as a replacement of Eurasia’s archaic populations with modern humans is becoming more complicated.” He calls it a “surprising finding” that we have Neanderthal genes. How complicated? Look at the gobbledygook in this quote:“We view this transition as a dynamic process of cultural evolution that occurred in complex, highly structured, cultural and demographic contexts, both in space and in time… This view emphasizes joint considerations of ecological, demographic, evolutionary, and cultural-evolutionary dynamics, in order to better understand the transition.”Neanderthals Walked Upright Just Like the Humans of Today (University of Zurich). Strike another blow to the image of a stooped-over caveman.Neanderthals are often depicted as having straight spines and poor posture. However, these prehistoric humans were more similar to us than many assume. University of Zurich researchers have shown that Neanderthals walked upright just like modern humans – thanks to a virtual reconstruction of the pelvis and spine of a very well-preserved Neanderthal skeleton found in France.The writer of this press release takes refuge in passive voice sentences. Who depicted them with poor posture? Evolutionists. Who assumed they were dissimilar to us? Evolutionists. This is a way to dodge accountability with Tontological writing, incorrectly drawing everybody into their own error.Exceptionally high δ15N values in collagen single amino acids confirm Neandertals as high-trophic level carnivores (PNAS). All this says is that Neanderthals ate meat. The authors call them “carnivores.” It’s true, but it sounds demeaning, like they were mere animals on the same level as tigers or lions. If you enjoy cheeseburgers, filet mignon, or salmon fillet, would you appreciate being called a carnivore? Hopefully that is not the only trait that defines you, and it should not define Neanderthals.Older conceptions of Neanderthals assumed they were much more primitive than humans. This reconstruction by Frantisek Kupka, with aid from paleontologist Marcellin Boule, appeared in The Illustrated London News in 1909. (Boston Globe)Brain Evolution: Mapping the Inner Neandertal (Current Biology). Sherwood and Bradley point out some surprising consequences of the surprising discovery that Neanderthals interbred with “modern” humans (notice the implied historical racism).This means that there are billions of people walking the earth today that carry the DNA of Neandertals. There is more Neandertal DNA in the world now than at any other time in history.The authors focus on the ‘globularity’ of the skull as something that is ‘uniquely human,’ but admit that evolutionists ‘are just scratching the surface’ to understand variability in humans. They insist on calling anyone else than our brand “archaic” humans – a slur against which Neanderthals are not present to defend themselves.Neanderthals may have been sprinters not endurance runners (New Scientist). Evolutionists are prone to portray Neanderthals as hairy, naked and possessed of blank expressions. This is no exception, starting with exactly that kind of image. But at the same time, the article debunks another Neanderthal myth. Using another Tontology, the author says:We may have to rewrite what we know about Neanderthals — they were sprinters rather than long distance joggers, and occupied forests, not bleak tundra-like wasteland….However, a new analysis suggests a different view. “A closer look at the layers in which their fossils are found suggest Neanderthals actually lived at the same times and places as animals that are associated with warmer, woodland ecologies,” says John Stewart at the University of Bournemouth, who led the study.If you have to rewrite something you knew, did you really ever know it? You don’t have to revise knowledge. You revise myths. Another myth was left unstated: the idea that all Neanderthals were one thing or the other. Consider the Olympics. Don’t we have events for both long distance runners and sprinters among ‘modern humans’? We don’t know the degree of variance in the abilities of Neanderthals. It’s illogical to infer that one trait possessed by one or a few skeletons represents the entire population.Humans Did Not Wipe Out the Neanderthals, New Research Suggests (Live Science). Another myth explodes: that more-evolved ‘modern humans’ wiped out the brutish Neanderthals once they had to compete in evolutionary fitness. It was a nice myth that fit the Darwinian picture of competition and struggle. Alas, the longer overlap in time and sexual dalliances between the groups suggest that the alleged extinction of Neanderthals “might have been more complex and drawn out than previously thought,” this article sheepishly admits. Since we have their genes, and they had our ancestors’ genes, maybe we are them, and they are us.A more modern depiction shows Neanderthals as strong, thoughtful, and culturally astute. What’s the difference? image by Mauro Cutrona.Trail of feathers to the Neanderthal mind (Nature). Veteran paleoanthropologist Bernard Wood reviews Clive Finlayson’s newest book, The Smart Neanderthal. Finlayson believes Neanderthals were our cognitive equals. Wood provides a readable account of the history of Neanderthal discoveries, and almost agrees with Finlayson that their feather collections from a wide variety of species indicates cognitive sophistication. But, he ends, “We need to find more sites in which Neanderthals were put through their behavioural paces.” How many instances does it take, though? If you found one smartphone, you’d understand a lot about modern humans’ cognitive sophistication.Update 3/08/19: Rabbit bones suggest Neanderthals were better hunters than we thought (New Scientist). This article shares new evidence published in Science Advances that Neanderthals hunted rabbits. The significance of this is that rabbits are hard to catch, requiring great skill in hunting such nimble, fleet-footed small mammals that dart this way and that (try it some time). Evolutionists believe Neanderthals, and maybe even their ‘ancestors’ Heidelberg Man were catching rabbits 400,000 years ago, even before they had invented arrows or spears. This would be right around the oldest alleged age of Neanderthals. The surprised paleoanthropologists found evidence of rabbit bones in some of the oldest habitats of Neanderthals, admitting that this contradicts evolutionary expectations: “the frequent exploitation of leporids [rabbits] documented here implies that human diet breadths were substantially more variable within Europe than assumed by current evolutionary models.”Evolutionary scientists have been so, so, so wrong about our Neanderthal brethren. What is it going to take to get them to take responsibility for promoting fake science, and to repent, and vow never again to commit such abominations in the name of science?last_img read more

How Prospecting Sets Your Tempo

first_imgThis past Friday I had the opportunity to share the stage with Jeb Blunt, Miles Austin, Mark Hunter, Mike Weinberg, and John Spence. These five gentlemen are part of a mastermind group that came together a little over a year ago.When I mentioned to this group that I owned virtualsaleskickoff.com (2016 virtual sales kickoff coming soon) they agreed that we should do a virtual event for salespeople who may not have ever attended a sales kickoff meeting. That event went so well we decided to do a live event. So last Thursday we arrived in Washington DC, and Friday we presented to a couple hundred people in a small, intimate venue.We called this the Customer Acquisition Symposium. We each started with a Ted style, 25-minute talk. And then we each did a 1 hour and 15 minute workshop. All of the speeches and workshops were designed to help the symposium attendees acquire new customers faster.Speed KillsI learned something from every speaker. But the one big take away from me was the importance of tempo when it comes to leading sales and growing your business.Tempo is a big deal. It indicates the speed of a rhythm. A faster tempo is a faster rhythm, and a slower tempo is a slower rhythm. Because it was so much talk about creating opportunities with prospective clients and inside existing clients, I recognized that the tempo of your business and your growth is determined by your prospecting.If your prospecting work is done infrequently and sporadically, then that is your tempo. It might even be hard to find a rhythm because so little prospecting is actually being done. Infrequent and sporadic prospecting can only lead to infrequent and sporadic opportunity creation and equally infrequent and sporadic opportunity acquisition. You’ve determined that by setting the tempo.If your prospecting work is done with a faster tempo, frequently and consistently, then you can expect that the creation of opportunities will also match the frequency and the consistency in which you do that work. Again, you determine the tempo.Most sales organizations have sales leaders and sales managers who are focused on late stage deals. They want deals that they can forecast now, and they coach deals in the later stages. But that means that they are coaching the tempo being set by the sales force and not setting the tempo themselves.A salesperson or an entrepreneur determines their tempo by the frequency and the consistency of their prospecting.What is the tempo of your business now?Does the frequency and the consistency with which you prospect create enough opportunities?What do you need to do to increase the tempo?

Shooter Tushar Mane bags silver to open India’s medal account in Youth Olympics

first_imgBuenos Aires, Oct 7 (PTI) India opened its medal account in the Youth Olympic Games with shooter Tushar Mane bagging a silver in the men’s 10m air rifle on the opening day of competitions here on Sunday. Mane, who qualified third for the final, shot 247.5 to win the silver while Grigorii Shamakov took the gold with 249.2. Aleksa Mitrovic of Serbia won the bronze with a score of 227.9. It was close fight among the three podium finishers till the end and Mane edged out Mitrovic for the silver medal by collecting 228.0 as against 227.9 of the Serbian shooter in the penultimate round. But, the final round was not the best one for the Indian as he shot 9.6 and 9.99 while the eventual gold winner had 10.4 and 10.7. In the qualification round held earlier in the day, Mane had shot 623.7 to finish third and qualify for the final. India is being represented by 46 athletes in 13 sports in the prestigious event. This is India’s largest ever contingent at the Youth Olympics. India won two medals — a silver and a bronze — in the last Youth Olympics in 2014 in Nanjing in China.

Cutrone & Calabria strikes sink Roma

first_imgRoma 0 AC Milan 2: Cutrone and Calabria secure superb win for Rossoneri Guy Atkinson Last updated 1 year ago 05:41 2/26/18 Patrick Cutrone - cropped Getty Images AC Milan’s fine form in Serie A continued as a superb second-half display saw off an out-of-sorts Roma. AC Milan stretched their unbeaten run in Serie A to eight games as Patrick Cutrone and Davide Calabria sealed a 2-0 win over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.Gennaro Gattuso’s side were second best during a poor first half but came out for the second period rejuvenated and secured all three points thanks to their young stars.Their more adventurous approach bore fruit after 48 minutes when Cutrone got a delicate touch to Suso’s cross, which flashed past Alisson.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Milan had further chances to add a second before the unlikely figure of Calabria added gloss to the scoreline with a composed finish in the 74th minute.The win sets Milan up perfectly for a big week, which sees them face Lazio in a Coppa Italia semi-final second leg on Wednesday before a crunch derby with Inter four days later.Roma, meanwhile, will need to pick themselves up quickly after a second consecutive defeat ahead of a daunting trip to Napoli next weekend.74′ AND @davidecalabria2 MAKES IT TWO!!!! Il raddoppio rossonero con un gran gol di Davide!!! Dai ragazzi!!!!! ️ #RomaMilan 0-2 pic.twitter.com/1tvqQquMrI — AC Milan (@acmilan) February 25, 2018 Roma started with a spring in their step and tested Gianluigi Donnarumma – celebrating his 19th birthday – twice inside the opening 10 minutes through Cengiz Under and Diego Perotti.Milan soon settled, however, and largely kept their hosts at arm’s length for large swathes of the first half.When Roma did threaten, Lorenzo Pellegrini was at the heart of it. The 21-year-old midfielder had a penalty appeal waved away before flashing a shot wide of Donnarumma’s right-hand post as the half ended goalless.In stark contrast to their tepid first-half display, Milan started the second period with verve and swagger and were rewarded with the opening goal after just three minutes.Cutrone found Suso on the right and then stormed into the box to meet the Spaniard’s teasing cross with an impudent flick past Alisson for his sixth Serie A goal of the season.48′ GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAL! Patrick!!!!CUTRONEEEE! Vantaggio rossonero! ️ #RomaMilan 0-1 pic.twitter.com/raTN3gmnax — AC Milan (@acmilan) February 25, 2018 Perotti then drilled a long-range effort just wide as Roma attempted to restore parity, while Alisson had to be alert to parry over Franck Kessie’s powerful drive as Milan looked to double their advantage.The shackles were well and truly off Milan’s players after Cutrone’s goal and Hakan Calhanoglu should have at least tested Alisson with a low drive just before the hour, instead dragging it wide.Substitute Nikola Kalinic should have wrapped it up with 20 minutes remaining but was denied by a smart one-handed save from Alisson.The Croatian made up it for it soon after, though, playing in the marauding Calabria who coolly clipped over the onrushing Roma goalkeeper for his first ever Serie A goal.Roma rarely looked like clawing their way back into the game in the closing stages as Milan – who could have had a third late on through Fabio Borini – comfortably held firm to register a memorable win. Key Opta Facts:- AC Milan have won an away league match against Roma for the first time since October 2011.- Patrick Cutrone has scored four goals in his last four Serie A games. His strike on Sunday was Milan’s first shot on target of the match.- Davide Calabria has scored his first goal for AC Milan (42 apps in all competitions).  read morelast_img read more
