Around Christmas time, activity of the evangelical atheists seems to pick up a bit more. This might be an artifact of media coverage, but we tend to see some atheists objecting to outward displays of theistic faith, and others celebrating their own intellect by trying to drive the square vehicle of scientific method into the circular gateway of spiritual matters.
This Christmas, Thomas D Williams has brought “professional atheist” John G. Messerly to the loving attention of your friendly Pharmer. Messerly is railing against religion as vulgar superstition, delusion, and states that humanity needs to outgrow this spiritual impetus that fueled the building of Western and Eastern civilizations.
We might decide to emulate Dr. Messerly, who has built………. ummmmm some books and some articles, and memberships in cool secular think tanks. His contributions to civilization might out weigh those of the astounding, atheist biologist P. Z. (has he published peer reviewed scientific research lately?) Myers. But if we did follow after these leaders of thought, what would get accomplished?
Academia, under the rule of the left has pumped out prodigious numbers of underachievers, who spend a great deal of time celebrating their own intellect, but very little time building things which could advance the human condition, or that of planet Earth.
Atheist evangelists can’t seem to let go of the Creator, who has them by the tail , or is the handle within their DNA? That’s the Pharmer theory.
If an Atheist evangelist is messing with your religious expressions and celebrations, ask him what has he done lately. Has he invented or constructed or created anything? Does he serve the needs of his fellow humans in any concrete way? Has he discovered some new nugget of knowledge which could advance the condition of mankind?
Lifesite News has put up a little slide show of images showing how various types of birth control operate. Each image is taken from the pharmacology section of info that the drug manufacturers publish for health care providers. None of this information is new, and if you never heard it from your doctor or CNP………. well……
Part of birth control effectiveness is due to processes that occur AFTER fertilization.
You can learn about some more birth control at the Chemical Abortion page listed above.
Last summer, cops responded to a 911 call reporting Beaver Creek, Ohio shopper, John Crawford for “Playing With a Gun While Black”. To be sure, Crawford was without gun etiquette and safety skills, but he was not threatening his fellow shoppers. He had picked up an unloaded, air powered, pellet gun in Walmart and had been swinging it in the corner aisle, while talking on a cell phone. Most of the time the rifle is pointed towards the floor. At one point, the muzzle is seen pointing toward a back wall and shelf of pet food, but not at any other shoppers.
Once readers tour the Walmart video footage, they will admire the folks atTruth About Guns, who essentially got the gist of this story way back in August, before any of this info was available. John Crawford is mainly a victim of panicky, anti-gun propagandizing . It also appears that cops, all juiced up for a crazy shooter, did not give the guy much of a chance to respond appropriately to their presence before he was plugged by two of their bullets.
One 911 caller will be crawling into a hole after the unwarranted death of 22 year old Crawford, as well as the untimely demise of a 37 year old female shopper, who had a heart attack following the ensuing melee. (Naturally the left wing media is trying to tie the caller to the Tea Party.)
Given the sum total of the story, it’s not a surprise that the family of John Crawford would want to sue somebody. They would not be able to get much out of the 911 caller who touched off this whole disaster.
Lastly, people need to be exercising gun safety and etiquette along with their gun rights.
Under experiences of racism, Michelle listed an incident during which person asked her for help getting something from the shelf in a department (Target) store. (It could have NOTHING to do with her height, of course).
If pop culture is on your radar, the Breitbart.com deconstruction of a losing battle in Lena Dunham’s War on Women is worth your time.
Dunham’s best seller “Not That Kind of Girl”, contains a number of departures from reality, as well as a story of sexually abusing her own sister. Among these stories is a claim that she was raped by a prominent college republican.
Breitbart’s John Nolte has investigated the details of her story, and found it to be inaccurate, with the accused not matching Dunham’s descriptive highlights. The named individual, very unlike Dunham’s “memory” of her sex contact, has had to retain a lawyer, and disappear from social media. Memories of the famous Tawanna Brawley case come to mind.
Lena Dunham continues to allow the named individual, who says he never met her, who does not match her physical description, who did not graduate when she said he did, and who did not work where she said he did, to twist in the wind.
Dunham refused to press charges in a claimed case of rape. Either she is lying about rape altogether, or she has allowed a criminal (whose name and description do not match) to remain free to repeat his crimes. Both of these options harm other women.
The CDC’s latest abortion data (2011) features some strikingly tragic statistics from New York City. It continues to corroborate the contention that minorities are relegated to the status of livestock in leftie land.
77.56% of the abortions in NYC are of Black and Hispanic babies. Blacks make up 25.5%, and Hispanics comprise 28.6% of the city’s population. 31,188 Black babies (46.1% of total) and 23,929 Hispanic babies (31.4% of total) lost their lives to elective abortion in 2011. 44% of NYC’s population is considered White, and that group accounted for 12.5% of abortions.
New York City aborted 76,251 babies, more than any other STATE, in the union. New York State’s abortion total is 103,339. Texas trails NYC with 71,658 abortions. Data from Illinois is not available.
The CDC report crunches numbers for only about half of the 50 states. Click HERE for the report.
The Charlotte Lozier Institute and Family Research Council have been collecting data on thousands of plans offered through the Obamacare exchanges to determine which ones cover elective abortions. An interactive map is provided at their website, that delineates which states have opted out of elective abortion coverage. Other states can be clicked to find out which plans covered abortion in 2014, and data is being collected on the plans for 2015.
Extreme “lack of transparency” on the part of the Obama administration has made it hard to determine which plans are sequestering funds from their customers for abortion coverage. People who have obtained such info about their own plans are invited to contact the organization, so the information can be added to their website. Others can check to see whether their state has opted out or whether their own plan covers abortion.
