Evolution: A Theory in Crisis

Michael Denton, Molecular Biologist
Adler and Adler, 1985

“Instead of revealing a multitude of transitional forms through which the evolution of the cell might have occurred, molecular biology has served only to emphasize the enormity of the gap. We now know not only of the existence of a break between the living and non-living world, but also that it represents the most dramatic and fundamental of all the discontinuities of nature. Between a living cell and the most highly ordered non-biological system, such as a crystal or a snowflake, there is a chasm as vast and absolute as it is possible to conceive.

More intolerance and violence from the ‘Religion of Peace’

Yet another example of why the death-cult of Islam is incompatible with civilised society, and why further immigration and refugee intake from this backward ‘culture’ should be arrested forthwith. The social liberals who continue to sell out the West in this regard should also be held to account. Traitors one and all.

French satirical paper ‘firebombed’ after cartoon

PARIS (AFP) – The offices of a French satirical newspaper that published a special Arab Spring edition with the Prophet Mohammed as “guest editor” were destroyed in a suspected firebomb attack Wednesday, police said.

Euthanasia promoters back on the campaign trail

With the latest conviction for “assisted suicide” having been ruled on we see all the usual suspects coming out of the woodwork demanding a law change which would allow what amounts to state sanctioned murder.

Euthanasia trial: lesser guilty plea

Otago Daily Times
Wednesday Nov 2, 2011

The trial of scientist Sean Davison, accused of attempting to murder his mother, ended at the High Court in Dunedin today when he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Serial rapist and paedophile to be released

So despite having a high likelihood of reoffending, and that he shows no remorse or intention of staying away from children under 16 years of age Wilson will be released having served two-thirds of his 21 year sentence. Unbelievable! People like this should be subject to the death penalty in my opinion. The social liberals in our midst have destroyed the ability of the system to bring genuine justice where it is needed most. Shame on them!

‘Real’ risk Beast of Blenheim will reoffend

Stuff.co.nz – 02/11/2011

The sex offender known as the Beast of Blenheim is four times more likely than the average prisoner to reoffend if released, the Parole Board says.

In 1996 Stewart Murray Wilson was sentenced to 21 years in prison for sexually offending against women and girls over a 25-year period.

He would have served his sentence by September 2012, and will be released into the community.

Why is Democracy Failing in the West?

IMO democracy only holds together when the foundation of society is firmly based on Judeo-Christian principles and values. Inherent to this worldview is that government is not the be all and end all but, like the general population, is subject to Godly authority.

Soldiers told not to shoot Taliban bomb layers

Yet more political appeasement of Islamists who then, as a result, go on to murder Western soldiers. Words really do fail over the stupidity and treasonous actions of Western politicians and bureaucrats. Link

[Excerpts with emphasis mine]

British soldiers who spot Taliban fighters planting roadside bombs are told not to shoot them because they do not pose an immediate threat, the Ministry of Defence has admitted.

Cultural Marxists to Blame for Increasing Lawlessness

The Pound of Flesh

October 31, 2011 – 4:39 pm – by Richard Fernandez

[Excerpts – emphasis mine. Hat tip: Crusader Rabbit]

political correctness … undermined the Laws of War

Warfare is older than the modern state. When the Strategy Page described what it calls “vigilante warfare” by Israeli settlers on members of Hamas it might have been talking about a process of “going native”. In the Middle East the tradition of pre-Westphalian warfare is strong. Private war, from the action of clans against other clans to the sponsorship of belligerence by warlords never completely went out of style. The BBC described how Saddam Hussein promised to pay anyone who would kill a Jew. “A Hamas suicide bomber’s family got $25,000 while the others – relatives of militants killed in fighting or civilians killed during Israeli military operations – all received $10,000 each.” […]

How Islam Manifests based on Percentage Muslim Population

In remembrance of those who died 10 years ago on the 11th of September 2001 – a time when Islam declared its full hand and its ultimate intention for the non-Islamic West.

As I often discuss the impact of Islam, and particularly Islamic immigration, upon Western nations on this blog, I thought it may be worthwhile citing material which details the typical impact of Islam on the host nation based on Muslim population as a percentage of the greater whole.
I have shortened the main article and highlighted the Muslim percentage makeup of the various nations cited. [Previously posted on Crusader Rabbit]

Climate Depot exposes more warmist lies and deceit

Warmists Now Claim Global Warming ‘Worse than Predicted’?! Climate Depot Responds: ‘The scientific case for man-made climate fears has collapsed’

[Excerpts – emphasis mine. Plenty of good supporting links in the article exposing yet more fraudulent and dishonest claims by warmists and their lackeys – the dishonest and equally corrupt main stream media services.]

The proponents of man-made global warming are now claiming that man-made climate change is worse than they predicted. In a October 18, 2011 Daily Climate article, global warming activists claim that the “evidence builds that scientists underplay climate impacts.” […]

Israel’s new airport security

[From Real Science, hat tip: Robertvdl]

TEL AVIV, Israel — The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners. It’s an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person.
Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling. It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials.
You’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter, an announcement: “Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is proud to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London . Shalom!”

Global warming is real [… just not the man-made bit IMHO]

Please note: There are a large number of good supporting links in the main article which I have not included here – especially in the main blockquote where Marc Morano is cited.

By James Delingpole

[excerpts – emphasis mine]

We know it’s getting warmer. That’s not the point.

“The planet has been warming,” says a new study of temperature records, conducted by Berkeley professor Richard Muller. I wonder what he’ll be telling us next: that night follows day? That water is wet? That great white sharks have nasty pointy teeth? That sheep go “baaaa”?

No, the only surprising part of the results of the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project is the good professor’s chutzpah in trying to present them as new or surprising – let alone any kind of blow to the people he calls “skeptics” (or, when speaking to his friends at the Guardian, “deniers”).

Europe: “You Are Entering a Sharia Controlled Zone”

by Soeren Kern

[excerpts – emphasis mine
Hat tip: WebWrat]

A Muslim group in Denmark has launched a campaign to turn parts of Copenhagen and other Danish cities into “Sharia Law Zones” that would function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Islamic law.

The Danish Islamist group Kaldet til Islam (Call to Islam) says the Tingbjerg suburb of Copenhagen will be the first part of Denmark to be subject to Sharia law, followed by the Nørrebro district of the capital and then other parts of the country, the center-right Jyllands-Posten newspaper reported on October 17.

How feminism made so many nurses too grand to care

by Melanie Phillips

[excerpts]

Back in 2001, when Tony Blair was Prime Minister, I was invited to talk to him about the National Health Service. At that time, he was particularly exercised about reforming the NHS.

Sitting on the Downing Street sofa, I told him that the experience of my frail and elderly mother had left me shocked and aghast.

My mother, who suffered from multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, had been hospitalised after a fall had fractured her hip. What appalled me was the lack of nursing care she received.

The moderate fanatics of the Islamist Winter

Melanie Phillips, as usual, introduces the hammer to the nail.

by Melanie Phillips

[excerpts]

It gets worse by the day. The lunacy of the west, that is, as the world teeters towards the precipice.

The ‘Arab Spring’ is turning just about everywhere into an Islamist winter. Libya has gone Islamist, with its new administration declaring that sharia law will rule. Sharia law is fundamentally anti-democratic, and Islamist theocratic regimes which adhere to its precepts are fundamentally anti-west.

The Chosen One – Obama

The following article, though quite long, really is well worth the read. Probably one of the best insights into Obama, his family, his mentors and sponsors — and hence what formulates his world-view — I have read yet.

by Angelo M. Codevilla – professor of international relations at Boston University and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Army War College Board of Visitors.

In our time, asking how a young man of scarce achievement got into position to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for president courts the contemporary synonyms for “impious”: “birther,” “conspiracy theorist,” and, of course, “racist.” Granted, to inquire into what formed a president is not as important as to understand what he does. Nevertheless, because fully to know where anyone is going requires grasping whence he comes, let us open ourselves to wonder how, minus miracles, a 10-year-old boy without obvious talent who had lived in Indonesia since age six ends up with an eight-year scholarship to Hawaii’s most exclusive school; a scholarship to Occidental College; a transfer into Columbia University; acceptance into Harvard Law School, and editorship of its law review; and how he goes from job to prestigious job without apparently mastering any of the previous ones. No wonder some of Barack Obama’s supporters treat him as if he were anointed by an extraterrestrial power.

Creation Story & Noah’s Flood recorded in Chinese Language

Ever wrestle with questions of faith? Most people do.

Where can you find such answers? One place to look is history. There are some intriguing explanations found in a culture that existed over one thousand years before the first words of the Bible were written down.

The Chinese language. It is the oldest, continuously writen language in the world. Is it possible the people who created the ancient Chinese characters knew the answers to the questions you are now asking? Is the connection between the ancient characters and stories in the Bible a coincidence or by design?

You decide for yourself …

Not by chance: From bacterial propulsion systems to human DNA, evidence of intelligent design is everywhere

By: Stephen C. Meyer

[Excerpt:]

The modern theory of intelligent design was not developed in response to a legal setback for creationists in 1987. Instead, it was first formulated in the late 1970s and early 1980s by a group of scientists-Charles Thaxton, Walter Bradley, Roger Olson, and Dean Kenyon-who were trying to account for an enduring mystery of modern biology: the origin of the digital information encoded along the spine of the DNA molecule.

Meet the Enemy: Grandma

October 19, 2011 by Richard Fernandez

A new term has been added to the litany catchphrases describing enemies of the people. To the words wreckers, profiteers and capitalist roaders has been added “bedroom blockers”, now used to refer to persons over 60 years of age who are live in homes in Britain with more bedrooms than they need.

What an amazing little country

What other nation but Israel would actively seek to assist nations who adhere to an ideology which is committed to its destruction and annihilation? We see a similar dynamic where Israel provides utilities and services into Gaza, etc – from which springs home-grown terrorist activity fully supported by the governing authority Hamas. Simply amazing.

I bet the Watermelons are loving this

But one must ask the question: Where are all the ‘green’ alternative energy options when a major gas supply is taken off-line?! If the enviro-Marxists had their way we would have no natural gas or oil-fired power generating capability, and yet it is hard to imagine ‘green’ options, such as wind, solar and tidal generation, ever replacing and coming anywhere near the power generating requirements of a country like New Zealand, or any other first world nation for that matter.

Gas leak from major pipeline could threaten supply
