I’ve decided to remove myself from opinionating, both political and scientific, because I’ve realised my opinion is simply no different to trying to fly a kite in a hurricane.
So this is the last post here.
Have I given up ? No. Just fighting progressivism differently by not baring the nape of my neck.
Clue? Go read the writings of Jiddu and UG Krishnamurti.
Geology is the history of the physical evolution of the Earth, but in the here and now, this knowledge doesn’t mean anything; for it cannot be changed since it is history. But it can be interpreted, in many ways, but those interpretations remain in and of the past, and as interpretations of that past, merely extrapolations of the past to the present.
Many assert the means justify the end, and others that the end justifies the means; but for me, the means are the end.
Update: Andrew Bolt’s book launch in Melbourne Australia has been cancelled, ostensibly for family illness. But Alan Moran, Writing on Catallaxy Files hints at another reason – the foul advertisements promising to make the book launch unpleasant. The political left seem to be gaining more courage, and as they also seem in league with the Islamicists, I would suggest potential victims should keep their heads below the parapets until this blows over as it will. I also publish on the Henry Thornton site and that has to find a new server within the month. Times are boring at present but they will become more interesting and in order to survive one needs to be boring.
Update: And then again reading the comments below, I might have been too precipitous. I’m reading P.N. Oat’s various books (See Malaga Bay for the list) and his description of Islam is very critical but in line with what civilised peoples think of Islam – a barbarous collectivist totalitarian theology.
