Our New Dark Age

The importance of this event should not be underestimated. This signals the presence of a new dark age, truly.

I, coincidentally, am involved intimately in the dynamics and themes of this darkness, as it has affected my relationship with my children because of their mother’s superstitious attitude toward life on Earth, which she inherited from her superstitious parents, particularly her mother, who likes to believe in ghosts and spirits and such.

So here we are. Where actual scientific method has been largely ruled out as something we can rely on and trust as a way of guiding us through the misty haze of evidence which is limitless. We must rely on something to guide the way, to measure what is right and wrong, what is left and right, what is odd or even. Unfortunately, despite all of the book learnin’ people have participated in over the last several decades, centuries, etc., people keep thinking that things like fragile, illogical, error-prone, synthetic belief systems such as Christianity ™ and Islam and Judaism are both relevant, important, reasonable, inherently valuable, PROVABLE, and, worst, enforceable.

Look no farther, this is the problem we face as a civilization.

Another more timely strike against Mississippi


Key report confirms Mississippi losing millennials faster than any other state from mississippi

Feels like it! 😐 One more reason to GTFO.

And “Governor” Phil Bryant is a buffoon. Denial & ignorance (best case) and actively looting your historically suppressed constituency (worst case) are both very grave errors/crimes/sins/mistakes/acts/choices in an actual democracy. I’m hoping for massive amounts of cosmic justice, whether I’m privileged enough to witness it or not. πŸ™‚πŸ•ŠοΈβ™₯οΈπŸ•‰οΈβ˜ΈοΈπŸŒπŸŒŒπŸ’πŸ¦„

The root of the problem, if you care or are otherwise interested

Check out @profwolff’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/profwolff/status/1029053971627892736?s=09

This references an article I wrote about previously:

Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change – The New York Times

As Mr. Wolff points out, the New York Times continues its seemingly proud tradition, one it shares with plenty of other purveyors of truth, of stopping short of assigning blame where it is due and responsibly questioning the premises of this situation.

Consequences


A Chinese tourist has died after being bitten in the chest by a hippo he was trying to photograph in Kenya. from worldnews

So now all the non-human animals have to die because humans have failed at living in harmony with their environment.

Scientists seem to hold out hope that there’s still time to avoid catastrophe but it ain’t looking good. Good job, superstitious idiots. I hope you’ve had a fun ride with your season tickets and your Bible and your traditions. I haven’t.
