Well, here is one: Crap about “Intentional change” = stuff government will probably try to make us do, if it gets votes:  The Evolution Institute says it

uses evolutionary science to solve real-world problems. Currently, there is no mechanism for applying current theory and research to public policy formulation. We aim to provide the mechanism. Working with our large network of advisors, we can:

Identify and assemble the evolutionary expertise for virtually any topic relevant to human welfare.

Organize workshops, coordinate the writing of position papers, and provide advisors. Assist in the implementation of the policies that we formulate.

Does that include SWAT teams?

Curiously, it took a Canadian to publicize how many semi-useless bureaucrats in the United States have SWAT teams.

For better or worse, we live in a world of our own making and must use our knowledge to manage our affairs. It is time to make use of the knowledge provided by evolutionary theory.

Why do I keep remembering what I learned about WWII, every time I read this kind of thing? ( – O’Leary for News)

In case you proles even want to know what will be coming down the pike: Some offerings from. literally, The New Science of Intentional Change:
Beyond Genetic Evolution. Evolution And The Coming Interspiritual Age: A Conversation With Kurt Johnson:

Kurt Johnson is a rare specimen. He is an evolutionary biologist who specializes in the taxonomy of butterflies and has named hundreds of species. He was also a Christian monk and is currently a leader among an international movement called Interspirituality, as he recounts in his book titled The Coming Interspiritual Age.

So that would be the time when Islamic justice and the Catholic Church and Buddhism reach a common policy on stoning adulterers to death? (WARNING re all such vids).

The really interesting thing about all this “evolution” garbage is how retro it is. The world is actually going “backward” in terms of civil liberties.

Oh, and this: Evolving a More Nurturing Capitalism: A New Powell Memo:

Is it possible that evolutionary theory can explain how the U.S. came to have the highest levels of child poverty and economic inequality of any developed nation?

Hmmm. A lot might depend on what “child poverty” and “economic inequality” mean in context.

Canada shares the world longest undefended border with the United States. But we almost never get starving Americans asking for refuge.

Weird?

Also, the United States has a large number of high tech billionaires, which probably skews the rankings. Funny no one noticed.

Why not wait till lots of Americans are showing up at Canadian soup kitchens before we conclude that anything in particular is happening.

Oh wait, that might take a really long time. And everyone knows that evolution happens whenever a salaried airhead decides it does. Best if the airhead is a full professor.

You get the picture. Vote for it, pay for it, get more of it.

Also note the encomium on the founder of sociobiology, E.O. Wilson, a questionable figure at best.

    Didn’t they try that before, wasn’t it called eugenics or something?

    Study finds cell division sign posts for chromosomes along microtubule highway – May 22, 2015
    Excerpt: A system within cells that guides how chromosomes move during cell division was discovered by researchers,,,
    Microtubules are components that give structure to and organize a cell. They are also the main intracellular transport network. Motor proteins move along the microtubules ferrying chromosomes undergoing mitosis (part of cell division) as well as other subcellular organelles. How motor proteins navigate chromosomes along the highway during cell division was unclear, until now. The team discovered marks that label microtubules to direct the way in which a chromosomal motor protein should proceed.
    During cell division, chromosomes move on special spindle microtubules to align themselves, so they can split equally between the two resulting daughter cells. The team demonstrated that chromosome motion for this alignment is controlled by a specific post-translational modification of tubulin, the protein building block of microtubule tracks.,,,
    ,,,kinesin motors failed to take chromosomes to their alignment position if the guiding marks were eliminated,” explains Grishchuk.
    “This discovery became possible due to our use of high-resolution laser trapping techniques, which enable observing motions and forces at a single molecule level.,,,

    Sometimes, when I start reading excerpts from the putatively scientific and/or metaphysical beliefs of the materialist articles referenced here, and the arguments of the materialists posters, I find myself wondering of I’m reading lost satirical works of Jonathan Swift, such as Brobdingnag. Truly, the ideas they manage to come up with are actually far more fanciful – and detailed with it!

    It throws an amazingly clear light on the potentiality for extreme folly of the highly educated. The Wisdom books in the Bible actually call such pertinaciously faithless people, ‘simple’. A weirdly accurate inversion of our worldly thinking.

    Before reading posts and discussions on UD I didn’t understand how deeply Darwinism, materialism, atheism ..etc.. are taking hold in modern secular society. Looks like they are preparing world for New Moral Order. It is great that their sneaky work is getting exposed here.

    Atheists and their media-propaganda machine are getting into frenzy lately. They know from history that “pendulum” swings back and forth. Momentum is in their favor now so they are using it to erode every traditional value possible. Unfortunately it may go too far before distracted population realizes what happen to them and may end bad for everybody 🙁

    “Of the twenty-two civilizations that have appeared in history, nineteen of them collapsed when they reached the moral state the United States is in now.”

    (Toynbee’s quote applies to all modern secular societies not just US)
