God Miracles Millennials

God Miracles Millennials — Pew Research Center, last year, found that “religious nones”, which they describe as a shorthand for atheists and agnostics, make up about 23 percent of American adults, which is seven percent higher than in 2007.

God Miracles MillennialsMore than a third of Millennials identify themselves as non-religous.

Among the major reasons cited for disbelief are “learning about evolution when I went away to college”, “lack of any sort of scientific or specific evidence for a creator”, and “I’m a scientist now, and I don’t believe in miracles.”

This is ironic. Francis Bacon, generally considered to be the father of the scientific method, sneered at atheism.

“God never wrought miracle to convince atheism, because his ordinary works convince it,” he wrote in 1612 in his essay Of Atheism. “It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion. For while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them, confederate and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity.”

In his essay, he called atheists hypocrites which they are when they deny their belief to be a faith. Ask one how everything came about and what the purpose of existence is, and then ask him to prove it via the scientific method.

He will inevitably change the subject.

And not to get into a dispute about the flaws and virtues of the Theory of Evolution but those who hold it as a certainty upon which to base one’s value system are not practicing science.

All the scientific method can do is explain consistencies in nature. It cannot reveal the great truths and to believe that it can is, again, by definition anti-science.

As to the reason for the recent increase in atheism, Bacon hits it on the nose in his 400-year-old work. He cites scandals by priests; the scoffing holy things “which doth by little and little deface the reverence of religion”; and peace and prosperity.

The last point is a little counter-intuitive but when one has a soft life and death seems far away and fear is not a common experience, then the old rules don’t seem to make much sense.

Until one realizes that death is not as far away as one thought and one has to account for the choices one has made.

Hiroshima Nanking Manila Apologies

Hiroshima Nanking Manila Apologies
Better to end a war than start one.

Hiroshima Nanking Manila Apologies  –President Barack Obama kicked off the Memorial Day weekend for 2016 by apologizing for ending World War II.

So when are the Japanese going to apologize — at least in a way that seems sincere — for starting it? And for the vile things they did which would be unimaginable if they had not actually done them?

Consider the Nanking Massacre. Up to 300,000 civilians including women and children were murdered face to face after suffering sexual abuse and torture.

How about the Manila Massacre in which between 100,000 and 500,000 Filipinos were murdered on the verge of the city’s liberation. Yes, this also included raping and torturing children.

How about subjecting people — including U.S. POWs — to twisted scientific experiments?

They almost make the Nazis look good.

Most people who lived through World War II figured Hiroshima and Nagasaki were small time payback and that Japan really didn’t get anything close to what it actually deserved.

Millennials Socialism And Hope

Millennials Socialism And Hope — Some pundits are expressing fear for the Republic because of reports that “millennials” are embracing socialism. Millennials Socialism And Hope

A “millennial” can be loosely described as someone born between 1985 and 2000. A recent poll found that 53 percent of them had views favorable to socialism.

When the polling is broken down further, though, we find that while 58 percent of those between 18 and 24 like socialism, 56 percent of those between 25 and 34 don’t.

The older millennials, by the way, hate socialism more than those in 35 to 44 year old category of whom just 52 percent disapprove.

Take this all as a good sign.

If you are not a socialist at 20 you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at 30 you have no brain.

The kids are on the right path it seems but to help them along we offer these quotes on socialism from noted National Socialist propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

Yes children, the Nazis were socialists.

Money is the curse of mankind. It smothers the seed of everything great and good. Every penny is sticky with sweat and blood. . . .It poisons our own values and subjects us to the service of low and base instincts.
Joseph Goebbels

To be a socialist is to submit the I to the thou; socialism is sacrificing the individual to the whole.
Joseph Goebbels

Lenin is the greatest man, second only to Hitler, and that the difference between Communism and the Hitler faith is very slight.  
Joseph Goebbels

The worker in a capitalist state—and that is his deepest misfortune—is no longer a living human being, a creator, a maker. He has become a machine. A number, a cog in the machine without sense or understanding. He is alienated from what he produces.”
Joseph Goebbels

We are against the political bourgeoisie, and for genuine nationalism! We are against Marxism, but for true socialism!
Joseph Goebbels

It is rotten and dismal that a world of so many hundred million people should be ruled by a single caste that has the power to lead millions to life or to death, indeed on a whim…This caste has spun its web over the entire earth; capitalism recognizes no national boundaries…Capitalism has learned nothing from recent events and wants to learn nothing, because it places its own interests ahead of those of the other millions.
Joseph Goebbels
