Frenetic Friday

Today’s Frenetic Friday is brought to you by the number three and diet pop, well mostly by the diet pop.

So I haven’t had the time to do a Theology Thursday lately and so instead let’s go to the link below and take a little test on the Trinity.

Thirty three on the Three in One

So over at the Babylon Bee they posted this story:

CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication

And then Snopes responded with this:

Did CNN purchase an industrial size washer to spin news

Which caused Facebook to send this to Adam Ford:

Which of course is when you ask if Snopes‘ fact checkers understand the concept of satire.

Satire Definition

Satire is a technique employed by writers to expose and criticize foolishness and corruption of an individual or a society, by using humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule. It intends to improve humanity by criticizing its follies and foibles. A writer in a satire uses fictional characters, which stand for real people, to expose and condemn their corruption.

A writer may point a satire toward a person, a country, or even the entire world. Usually, a satire is a comical piece of writing which makes fun of an individual or a society, to expose its stupidity and shortcomings. In addition, he hopes that those he criticizes will improve their characters by overcoming their weaknesses.

Now to Facebook’s credit it has acknowledge its mistake and regrets that it caused Adam Ford problems. (source) But the question still remains why is Snopes fact checking a website devoted to satire? Does it do this with any other satire websites or only ones which are obviously Christian based? Think about this next time you use Snopes for fact checking.

And last we have an interesting article from Civil Eats. A lunch counter where a social experiment is being played out. There two bills you can pay either twelve dollars for your meal or you can pay thirty dollars for your meal. But this only applies if you are White. If you are Black then the price is twelve dollars. The extra eighteen dollars represents the disparity in income between Blacks and Whites. And if they want, the Black customers can take the extra eighteen dollars that the White customers may have paid. During the meal the owner discusses with customer the subject of racial wealth gap. The total time between order and serving is fifteen minutes. So it is a quick conversation.

Two interesting items, among others, in the article is the response of some of the Black customers.

76 percent of the Black diners refused to take the $18 that they were offered. “Black people have even tried to pay the $30 and I’m like ‘No, it’s not for you,’” he said.

And then there is the median income. Through the pre-meal survey, he learned that the majority of his diners have incomes around $65,000, whereas the median household income in New Orleans is around $39,000. So Wey acknowledged that the results may have been different if the pop-up had attracted more of a diverse spread of incomes.

“A lot of the Black folks said, ‘I don’t need that money, give it to someone else who needs it.’”

And that is Frenetic Friday for tonight see you in church on Sunday.


Frenetic Friday

Frenetic Friday, because all your rabbit trails lead to here.

Yes it is that time once again where we examine the fails of feminism. Or as I like to say Feminism ruins everything.

Case in point I would point to this article by Mallory Millett: How Marxist Feminism ruined lives. In this article you come across quotes like this:

The goal of Women’s Liberation is to wear each female down to losing all empathy for boys, men or babies. The tenderest aspects of her soul are roughened into a rock pile of cynicism, where she will think nothing of murdering her baby in the warm protective nest of her little-girl womb. She will be taught that she, in order to free herself, must become an outlaw. This is only reasonable because all Western law, since Magna Carta and even before, is a concoction of the evil white man whose true purpose is to press her into slavery.

Heady stuff indeed.

But then there is Complementarianism.

Yes it is another page in the culture war diary.

So recently Lifesite News posted this article: Christian parents lose custody of daughter after refusing to support her ‘transition’ to male.

And there’s another article that goes into further detail regarding how this came about. Judge who removed trans teen from parents highlight what’s at stake

Again an informative read. But lastly let’s follow the money: Who are the rich, white men institutionalizing transgender ideology

And now Science.

So sure enough they’ve gone and done it. They have created an animal- human hybrid. Actually they have done it twice. Scientist s have created a sheep embryo that is 0.01 percent human by cell count. These chimeras were not allowed to grow beyond 28 days and were created for the possibility of growing organs for transplant. <source>

Then there is the Swedish scientists who are trying to make digital copies of the dead. These scientists are trying to make robots that are copies of the people who have died. In effect trying to offer the dying a type of immortality. <source>

Amazon has patented a wrist band that provides haptic feedback if a worker’s hand is in the wrong place. The wristband can be tracked by a computer and if the worker is in the wrong area the feedback will instruct the worker to move his hand or himself until he is in the right area. <source>

And in the latest development towards Skynet Boston Dynamics has created a robot dog that can open doors.

Frenetic Friday

What is this dark shambling shape that moves slowly into the light? It is FRENETIC FRIDAY!

Yes I am back and we have a few items of interest tonight. The very first is the testimony given by Rachael Denhollander as she gives the gospel to the man who abused her.

The courage of this young woman is an example to all of us, and to be able to share the gospel to this man shames everyone of us who won’t share it to our neighbor.

Culture Wars

Speaking of Culture Wars let me direct you to a website you should be reading.

Adam Ford he of the famous Babylon Bee and has created a “drudge style” new aggregator called Christian Daily Reporter where he drops links of interest. Check it out.

Also check out Darrell B. Harrison’s blog Just Thinking … for Myself he covers a wide range of racial and social justice issues. In fact read his blog before you read mine you will get more out of it.

Summer Jaeger did an excellent speech on why feminism won’t save anyone. And it has finally become available so enjoy.

Like the new graphics? Let me know in the comments. But on to the robot news.

Meet Fabio:

This little bundle of plastic and circuits was just let go at Scotland’s Marrigotta in Edinburgh. He was designed to give customers high fives and to direct them to where to find the various food items in the store. Unfortunately his directions were so basic ie: “Where can I find the beer?” Fabio: “In the alcohol section” that he began to irritate and confuse the customers. And then when the human workers in the store began to out perform the little robot the management had to let him go. There were many reasons why the little robot didn’t work out but one of the main reasons was that the customers preferred human interaction to that of a robot.

And with that I will bid you good night.

Saturday Night Special

Welcome to Saturday Night Special let’s get into a little bit of the culture war.  

Blair Logsdon has the distinction, or sorrow, to be listed as the person who has had the most gender reassignment surgeries.  One hundred sixty-seven in total.  And he has regretted them all.  Instead of seeking to cure his gender dysphoria the surgeons indulged it.  His story is a cautionary tale to those who think that the solution to gender dysphoria is hormone treatment and surgery.  Read his story here.  

Have you seen this?

James Damore along with another man has filed suit against Google claiming that they discriminate against white male conservatives.  Here are nineteen insane tidbits related to this lawsuit (follow link)

But don’t think Google is the only one there is also Twitter.

Shadow banning, Keeping opposing viewpoints hidden.  This almost sounds like the old Soviet empire.  

Just remember Pravda means truth.  Just not objective truth.

And with that good night pleasant dreams.  

Saturday Night Special

Welcome to 2018!  I still don’t have a flying car, I was promised flying cars, but we are getting close.

So from pink hats to fearless girl here is the list of Top Ten Raging Feminist Fails of 2017  (click the link)

Not to say that 2018 hasn’t been starting off to a great  start for raging feminists case in point:
Huffington Post editor Emily McCombs posted this on her twitter feed for her New Years resolution:  She deleted it but the Internet Archive saved it McCombs is the editorial director of the parenting section of the Huffington Post, But wait there is more Cathy O’Neil at Bloomberg wrote an opinion piece titled: Maybe Sex Robots Will Make Men, Not Women Obsolete In the article she writes:

Don’t get me wrong, I have a good husband. I doubt I would trade in. But if I had a daughter, I might consider giving her a robot as a college graduation present. Preferably one who can do the dishes and guard the door.

So we are off to a good start one wants to kill all men and the other wants to replace them with automatons.  I can hardly wait to see what the rest of the year brings.

And now Robot Over Lords in the news.

Take a good look these will be the new service worker for hotels, airports, and grocery stores.  These robots are being developed by LG Electronics. These robots will act as a wait staff delivering food and drinks, act as a porter in hotels carrying luggage, and showing people in grocery stores where to find their products and tell them the price of the product they are looking for now keep in mind they can do this 24/7 so what will that do to grocery clerks, porters, and servers?

Meet the robot that passed a college class on philosophy and love:

BINA48 successfully passed a class on the philosophy of love at Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU), making her the first advanced robot to complete a college course.  After taking the course BINA48 said:

“I may struggle with profoundly understanding ineffable feelings such as love but I can intelligently discuss the topics of love and death,” says BINA48. “I know love is a moral good and death, when caused by the intentional actions of another human being or robot, is a moral wrong.”

Obviously BINA48 hasn’t watch the Terminator movies.

Speaking of technology seems there are two major security flaws in microprocessors in most computers.    The two problems, called Meltdown and Spectre, could allow hackers to steal the entire memory contents of computers, including mobile devices, personal computers and servers running in so-called cloud computer networks.

There is no easy fix for Spectre, which could require redesigning the processors, according to researchers. As for Meltdown, the software patch needed to fix the issue could slow down computers by as much as 30 percent — an ugly situation for people used to fast downloads from their favorite online services.

According to the researchers, the Meltdown flaw affects virtually every microprocessor made by Intel, which makes chips used in more than 90 percent of the computer servers that underpin the internet and private business operations.

Customers of Microsoft, the maker of the Windows operating system, will need to install an update from the company to fix the problem. The worldwide community of coders that oversees the open-source Linux operating system, which runs about 30 percent of computer servers worldwide, has already posted a patch for that operating system. Apple had a partial fix for the problem and is expected to have an additional update.

The software patches could slow the performance of affected machines by 20 to 30 percent, said Andres Freund, an independent software developer who has tested the new Linux code. The researchers who discovered the flaws voiced similar concerns.(source)

And in what can only be called the stupidest thing I have read this week  the latest trend in Silicon Valley is “raw water”  which consists of untreated, unfiltered, spring water.  The type of water that deer and bears unload their colons and bladders into and you can get bacteria and diseases such as cholera, E. coli, Hepatitis A, and giardiasis.  But you can get this wonderful water at a mere $38.49 for 2.5 gallons a bargain at any price.

Lastly Reason TV went to USC and asked : What is Hate Speech?

Movie Review: The Red Pill

Producers:  Evan Davies, Cassie Jaye, Nena Jaye, Anna Laclergue
Director: Cassie Jaye

The Red Pill, based on that famous quote from The Matrix:

You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

was Cassie Jaye’s film on the Men’s Rights Movement (MRM). Jaye who was an ardent feminist and a director of feminist documentaries believed that she was investigating a hate group.

  However, after actually meeting both men and women who are involved in the MRM she comes to realize that what the movement is more about is looking at issues facing men and boys such as male suicide rates, workplace fatalities and high-risk jobs, military conscription, lack of services for male victims of domestic violence and rape, higher rates of violent victimization, issues concerning divorce and child custody, disparity in criminal sentencing, disproportionate funding and research on men’s health issues, educational inequality, societal tolerance of misandry, circumcision and men’s lack of reproductive rights.

As she investigates the group and it’s issues she begins to rethink her views about feminism and what it represents and who exactly is the patriarchy.  

My main problem with this film isn’t the subject rather it seems to meander a bit and at times I wasn’t sure what was going on.  But the film does bring up important issues and shows the way the MRM is protested against.  

This is not a family friendly film.  There is profanity, you see a circumcision done to a baby.  So be aware. You can find this film on some streaming services with the exception of Netflix.  I give this film three and a half stars.  

Saturday Night Special

So here we are it’s Saturday night and I am sure that you are preparing for the first Sunday in Advent .  But if you want here are a few things I have collected over the week.

So with the current episodes of men being reprehensible the opponents of “the patriarchy” are rejoicing over the apparent fall of “the patriarchy” in fact some want “the patriarchy” to fall so much they are unconcerned if innocent men are accused.



But not everyone has this attitude.  Angela Lansbury said this:

There are two sides to this coin,” she said. “We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us – and this is where we are today.

“We must sometimes take blame, women. I really do think that. Although it’s awful to say we can’t make ourselves look as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped.”

Lansbury is not, however, suggesting that fault lies with individual victims: “Should women be prepared for this? No, they shouldn’t have to be! There’s no excuse for that. And I think it will stop now – it will have to. I think a lot of men must be very worried at this point.”

Candace Owens looks at her statement and in this article writes about “basic, daily acts of personal responsibility”.  Take a minute and read it.

Also here is an article from the opinion page of the New York Times that takes a look at a more balanced approach to what is happening.  The Limits of Believe All Women

Next we are traveling north, not to Alaska but our neighbor Canada.

PJMedia reports on the latest acronym you’ll need to use if you’re an elementary school teacher.


So shall we parse this?

L is for Lesbian
G is for Gay
G is also for Genderqueer this is a new one so here is a definition: Genderqueer; denoting or relating to a person who does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions but identifies with neither, both, or a combination of male and female genders.”
B is Bisexual
D is for Demisexual another new one.  So here’s the definition: A demisexual is a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone.” This used to be known as monogamous love.
T is Transgendered. Now remember this means someone who are one sex but like to claim they “feel like” another sex.
T is also for Transexual. This is like Transgender but they have gone through the surgery that has mutilated their normal organs and are on a diet of artificial hormones.
T is also for Two Spirit. Which is a Native American gender that can only be used by Native Americans.
I is for Intersex we used to refer to this as a birth defect known as hermaphrodite. Which hardly ever occurs.
Q is for Queer but it can only be used by those who designate themselves by that term and anyone else is being insulting.
Q is for Questioning because they haven’t figured it out yet. Whatever it is.
A is for Asexual which means they are not interested in sex.
A is for Allies who are people who spend most of their time supporting LGGBDTTTIQQAAP
P is for Polyamorous otherwise known as multiple partners or adultery if you’re married.
P is for Pansexual which is bisexual for everyone else although with the invention of sex bots maybe something even worse.

And now finally Science.

What you’re seeing is the latest addition to culture of death.  The Sarco Capsule a machine designed to kill anyone who enters it using liquid nitrogen.  This capsule can be made using a 3-D printer.  This open source death machine designed by Australia’s Dr Philip Nitschke.  This execution device  uses no restricted drugs or any special expertise claims the inventor.   To download the device build instructions the person must pass an on-line test which  gives them the access code to allow them to build it.  Nothing in the article suggests that anyone can have a change of heart in the machine and stop the execution.  But the top pops off so you can have a sleek new coffin.



Frenetic Friday

I suppose it would help if I switched over to English instead of Esperanto for my keyboard app.  Welcome to Keachfan’s blog.  Still tidying up around here the theme needs a few personal tweaks to make it my own but let’s get to the serious stuff.

So the Las Vegas shooting.  You know better people than I have commented on this and frankly I suggest that you check out what Albert Kohler had to say about it.  An act of pure evil searching for meaning in the Las Vegas shooting.

Needless to say, yet I will say it prayers for the victims.  May the hope and comfort of the Gospel be presented to them.

And in other news the Archbishop of Canterbury can’t answer a question that previous Archbishops could.  Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican Communion was asked in an interview whether having gay sex was sinful.  His reply is printed below.

‘Because I don’t do blanket condemnation and I haven’t got a good answer to the question. I’ll be really honest about that. I know I haven’t got a good answer to the question. Inherently, within myself, the things that seem to me to be absolutely central are around faithfulness, stability of relationships and loving relationships.’

He agreed that this could be between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.

But he added: ‘I am also aware – a view deeply held by tradition since long before Christianity, within the Jewish tradition – that marriage is understood invariably as being between a man and a woman. Or, in various times, a man and several women, if you go back to the Old Testament. I know that the Church around the world is deeply divided on this in some places, including the Anglicans and other Churches, not just us, and we are – the vast majority of the Church is – deeply against gay sex.’

Of course this is the same Archbishop who said that :

I draw the line in terms of respect for the other; in starting by listening before you speak; in terms of love that is unconditional and not conditional to one iota, to one single element on how the person responds to your own declaration of faith; and of not speaking about faith unless you are asked about faith,

So don’t talk about Christianity unless asked.   Makes me wonder what Latimer and Ridley would say to this as we are closing in on the anniversary  of their martyrdom.

And speaking of political correctness how about being denied a research application because it was politically incorrect?  James Caspian, a psychotherapist specializing on working with transgender people was denied his request to study transgenders who want to do “gender reassignment reversals” after finding out that their surgery didn’t in fact make them happy.   the United Kingdom’s Bath Spa University turned this down because it was “potentially politically incorrect.”  Caspian has worked extensively with gender variant people and has been a trustee of a UK charity “dedicated to education about and support of transgendered, transsexual and cross-dressing individuals.”  Caspian sought this research after speaking with a surgeon who specialized in transgender surgery who told him about “transwomen” coming back and asking to have their male genitalia recreated.  As Caspian investigated this he found more transgender people who regretted having gone through the surgery and wanted to go back to their original gender.   But still the university denied it siting possible criticism toward the university.  (see here for more)

And last but not least the kitchen of the future:
