I fear my ears are going to bleed the next time I hear some materialist bleating about how design is a science stopper. On second thought, maybe the conversation will go something like this: Materialist: But design is a science stopper. Barry: Dang. Isaac Newton said this: “This most beautiful system of the sun, planets […]
In a comment to a prior post frequent guest Seversky writes: If I tell you that I tried to drop a stone but it flew up in the air and disappeared out of sight, would you believe me? Probably not. Why not? Because every time you have dropped a stone it has fallen to the […]
Here. Including a vignette about how Dr. Meyer owned a materialist who lied about Newton’s approach to science.
Since the days of the Terror, authoritarian leftists have been fundamentally the same everywhere. For example, the difference between the authoritarian progressives who run The Atlantic and the authoritarians who ran the Soviet Union is one of degree, not kind. The Atlantic’s recent call to ignore the plain text of the Constitution because it interferes […]
Some arguments are not merely wrong; they are evil. Eric Orts is a professor in the Legal Studies and Business Ethics Department at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He is a progressive, and like most progressives he chafes at the checks on the unbridled power of numerical majorities built into the United […]
I will never forget the day many years ago when I first confronted the transgender issue (though we did not call it that then) in my law practice. I received a call asking for advice in dealing a kindergarten boy, because his mother was dressing him up in girl’s clothing and insisting that he be […]
I have often wondered what the point of materialist psychology is. Set aside mental illnesses that are manifestations of biological pathologies. I am talking about, for example, the man who goes to a therapist because he is having marital difficulties Why shouldn’t the therapy session proceed along these lines: Patient (let’s call him John): Doc, […]

“I believe that the whole idea of conscious thought is an error. ” So says Peter Carruthers, Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Maryland, College Park in this article in Scientific American. Proving once again, that some ideas are so gobsmackingly stupid, it takes a lot of education to believe them. He […]

Everyone has a religion. IOW, you gotta serve somebody.
Everyone has heard of a “shoestring budget.” But did you know that UD gets by on an “aglet budget”? What is an aglet? you ask. An aglet is that little plastic sheath at the end of a shoestring. That’s right. Our budget is so small that we only wish we could get by on a […]
Leftists frequently bash ID proponents and climate change hysteria skeptics as science “deniers.” This is ironic, because these same leftists insist that a man can be a woman by simply wanting to be badly enough. This would be amusing if they did not often employ the levers of political power to force compliance with their […]
At the risk of appearing to engage in unseemly schadenfreude, I am going to discuss Neil deGrasse Tyson in this post. Tyson, whom one wag labeled “the dumbest smart person on Twitter,” famously tweeted that we need a virtual country called “Rationalia,” with a one-line constitution – “All policy shall be based on the weight […]
A software developer friend brought this article in The Atlantic to my attention: The CRISPR Baby Scandal Gets Worse by the Day And he writes: I find it amusing that they keep referring to this kind of thing as “editing”. They’re going to need to figure out if they’re going to keep using “editing” as the […]
