So someone on Twitter suggested doing this and I think it would be a good idea. It was pointed out that there are 24 chapters in the gospel of Luke. And if you read a chapter a day by Christmas you would have read the entire gospel. So as an Advent devotional, even though Advent starts tomorrow I invite you to join me in read the gospel of Luke.
Well I promised a post and since the voices in my head won’t let me sleep let’s get on with the show.
From a reader of the blog comes a story from Great Britain where in a dispensational horror story a British company wants to insert RIF chips into their employees.
Biohax a swedish firm specializing in this microchip implantation promotes this as an security measure for firms. The British trade union says it is an imposition on the employees right to privacy and is just another way to micromanage the employees by the companies. Note: this technology has already been put to use in the United States. (Source)
Yes we have another Robotic Over Lords story for you tonight.
Meet Habitat by Honestbee:
This Singapore store is completely cashless and is run by robots. Using the honestbee app will allow you access to the store, where you can scan the items that you want into your shopping cart using their app and pay for them there. But wait, there is more this store started out as a grocery delivery store where you shipped via the app and robots packaged your groceries into a recyclable bag. Now the store has expanded to laundromat and eatery. Here is a video of the robots packing up the ordered food.
The robots can process 300 customers an hour! Coming soon to a Walmart near you? Maybe. (Source)
Does math perpetuate “Unearned White Male Privilege” well according to an Illinois professor it does. Rochelle Gutierrez, from the University of Illinois wrote:
On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White (Source)
And here is the bonus point Rochelle Gutierrez is a math teacher. Think about that as you send your children to university.
And lastly tonight we have an article about a renegade Episcopal Bishop. Ho hum, what’s new you might think. But wait this is different his rebellion is against the Episcopal Church’s new rules.
The Episcopal Church and Western Society have been hijacked by the ‘Gay Rights Agenda,’ which is very well organized, very strategic, very well financed, and very powerful,”The Rev. William Love wrote in the eight-page letter.
The Episcopal Church is just three weeks, at the time of this article, from finalizing the rules for same sex marriage which would take place on December 2. Love has ordered his diocese not to perform any same sex marriage ceremony.
According to The Rev. Susan Russell, an activist for an inclusive church based in the Los Angeles diocese, Love is the only U.S. bishop refusing to comply with the new resolution.
Certain parishioners gathered outside of St. Andrew’s church in Albany to ceremonially burn Bishop Love’s letter. One lesbian, who said she felt very comfortable at St Andrew’s church said:
You come to a church looking for comfort and love and you’re told that you’re acting in concert with Satan? Anybody who doesn’t fit in with his vision of how things should be is unsafe because of his letter and his actions.
William Love Contra Mundum
Doug Wilson kindly posted this by Robert Gagnon regarding the Revoice Conference. This is a fair and balanced read and frankly more people should read it so with that in mind…
Read the rest of it here: Concerns with the upcoming Revoice Conference and Spiritual Friendship Folk
Well it is June and someone has designated this month for one of the seven deadly sins. And with that in mind here we go.
So it seems that Jack Dorsey CEO of Twitter enjoyed a chicken sandwich made by Chick-fil-A and tweeted about it which caused the SJW on Twitter to have a conniption fit. And even Soledad O’Brien tweeting: “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month, Jack,” This of course caused Jack Dorsey to quickly backpeddle and apologize for eating a sandwich.
But wait there is more! Noah Michelson in a Huff-Post article wrote that if you really love and support LGBQT people you must stop eating at Chick-fil-A. In the article Michelson does point out that Chick-fil-A has done some good things, such as provide free meals to the blood donor volunteers at the Pulse Club shooting, still nothing can make up for Dan Cathy’s defense of traditional marriage being between one man and one woman.
I would like to point out that the last time someone suggested this course of action Chick-fil-A had over flowing restaurants full of customers.
From here let’s travel to a track meet in Connecticut. Where two transgender “girls” won the 100 & 200 meter. The two “girls” had previously been on the boys track team until they decided to switch to the girls team.
Of course by switching to the girls team these two biological boys knocked out two young girls who had been compeating for those same positions but couldn’t compete against the basic biological difference of male muscularity versus female muscularity.
By doing this the level playing field that once existed no longer exists. But of course a level playing field’s meaning has been changed by the idea that transgender rights supercede anything that might be biologically based.
In Canada their equivalent of PBS produced this:
Francis Schaeffer years ago pointed out that there is nothing neutral, everything reflects a certain worldview. And what is being taught to the children will shape their worldview. It is obvious what worldview is being taught to the children in Canada the question is what worldview is being taught to your children.
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.
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. (source)
Lastly Reason TV went to USC and asked : What is Hate Speech?
