Frenetic Friday


And what a week it’s been folks.  Well we have a little bit of everything here even some Robotic Over Lords!

So this appears in my feed in the first part of the week

Now let’s state the obvious only one combination is going to keep you in your seat on a plane.  And frankly if the others are actually offered I’m not flying KLM I’ve been in turbulence.  But this is the best response I have seen.

HT: Doug Wilson

And then we have a new update from the culture of death featuring James Franco.

Pay special attention to Franco’s face as Princeton philosophy professor Elizabeth Harman gives her argument for aborting some babies.  No matter how she tries to justify it her argument just doesn’t hold water and Franco’s face reflects it. 

And in the culture wars a former soldier who is transgender warns about the danger of gender dysphoria in the military.   One of the most interesting quote of that article is this:

When a service member becomes nondeployable because of gender transition related surgery, they’re going to not only not be on duty in some cases, but they will also be on light duty for most or all of that time.

They’ll have a medical profile against either performing their duties at all, or one that limits them. Commanders are forced to respect these limitations. But the health and fighting capabilities of a military unit are determined by how many of its members are deployable. It’s that serious.

As a former platoon sergeant I know this to be true.

Think about that.  

And now our Robotic Over Lord’s.

First something truly terrifying.

Who thought giving the robot a sword was a good idea?

And now let us send the kids out of the room.

So there are these things called sexbots.  That apparently are being programmed to be used in rape fantasies.  And yes it is amazing just how depraved men are.  

 But riding in on the robotic white horse comes Professor John Banzhaf, a well-known activist professor of public interest law at George Washington University Law School.  He is concerned about the sexbots being used in such a manner and he wants Congress to rule and regulate the sexbots industry.  (Click on the link if you want to read the article)

Now is it me or does he want Congress to regulate a type of sexbot prostitution?  

But on another note the thought of people having sex with robots reminds me of a quote from  That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis:

 There dwell an accursed people, full of pride and lust. There when a young man takes a maiden in marriage, they do not lie together, but each lies with a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts, for real flesh will not please them, they are so dainty (delicati) in their dreams of lust. Their real children they fabricate by vile arts in a secret place.”

And this ends another Frenetic Friday.

Frenetic Friday Night


Let me extend a welcome to the new readers of the blog.  I am glad you’ve decided to stop by. 

First from PJ Media a bit of science and theology:

And lest you think I am pulling your leg you can read about the experiment here

One further comment on this particular byte of information. It is always easy for those who hold to a materialistic worldview to reduce faith, and belief down to chemical reactions in the brain. What they haven’t done is explain why one set of chemical reactions are more true than another one. There is no right or wrong with chemical reactions they just are. But, Christians see all of us as image bearers of God and belief and faith is a response to the truth of what God has revealed and not just a chemical reaction.

Do you watch reality television? The nothing really “real” about reality television, but there is one that I must confess I’ve watched a time or two. It’s called Chopped. Chef’s are given a basket of ingredients and told to make various courses with the ingredients. And the ingredients usually include something pretty outlandish like butter beans, ostrich egg, and crème de mint. Now make breakfast.

So the Federalist had a recent article about a North Carolina bar holding a fund raiser for Planned Parenthood. The theme? Chopped.

Think about that, a fund raiser for a company whose main purpose is to chop up babies into parts having a theme called “Chopped” it is sickening. Federalist: NC Bar fundraising for Planned Parenthood

And now something completely different.

Have you seen this? This guy builds a house using primitive tools, yes I know that really doesn’t sound too impressive. Well how about he builds a house, a kiln, and makes his own roof tiles, using just primitive tools? You had me at roof tiles.

Now that is reality television. See you next week.

Frenetic Friday


Warning today’s blog post may be upsetting to those of a delicate constitution. If you are one whose nature is such go retire to your fainting couch. Those of a fiercer nature gird your loins.

Culture of Death update:  The Center for Medical Progress has released its latest video and in response the National Abortion Federation has asked for and received a temporary restraining order keeping the Center for Medical Progress from releasing more videos.  In the mean time in the latest video it shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses.  I hope you read that last part if not here it is again: including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses.  That is right the whole body not just the limbs or liver the entire body becomes a product.  A commercial good.  Women have now become manufacturing plants just grow a few parts for sale.  Or a whole body if you need one.

So with all this uproar, the senate calling for defunding Planned Parenthood and failing to achieve the necessary votes you would think that maybe the White House press secretary would have seen the videos.  You would be wrong.  When asked by a reporter if he had watched the videos Josh Ernest said, well hear it for yourself:

One of the most despicable things that happened last week was the media’s attempt to deflect the issue of the selling of baby parts by talking about the tragic death of Cecil a lion, that had supposedly been lured out of a protected park in Zimbabwe and shot and killed by a dentist that had paid for a lion hunting license.  This of course caused a big uproar here when a “beloved lion” was killed but let’s actually find out what a native of Zimbabwe thinks about lions.

On the opinion page of the August 4th New York Times Goodwell Nzou writes:  In Zimbabwe, we don’t cry for lions.  Nzou wrote that

Cecil who? I wondered. When I turned on the news and discovered that the messages were about a lion killed by an American dentist, the village boy inside me instinctively cheered: One lion fewer to menace families like mine.

In my village in Zimbabwe, surrounded by wildlife conservation areas, no lion has ever been beloved, or granted an affectionate nickname. They are objects of terror.

and

Recently, a 14-year-old boy in a village not far from mine wasn’t so lucky. Sleeping in his family’s fields, as villagers do to protect crops from the hippos, buffalo and elephants that trample them, he was mauled by a lion and died.

He ended his piece with:

PETA is calling for the hunter to be hanged. Zimbabwean politicians are accusing the United States of staging Cecil’s killing as a “ploy” to make our country look bad. And Americans who can’t find Zimbabwe on a map are applauding the nation’s demand for the extradition of the dentist, unaware that a baby elephant was reportedly slaughtered for our president’s most recent birthday banquet. <emphasis mine>

We Zimbabweans are left shaking our heads, wondering why Americans care more about African animals than about African people.

Don’t tell us what to do with our animals when you allowed your own mountain lions to be hunted to near extinction in the eastern United States. Don’t bemoan the clear-cutting of our forests when you turned yours into concrete jungles.

And please, don’t offer me condolences about Cecil unless you’re also willing to offer me condolences for villagers killed or left hungry by his brethren, by political violence, or by hunger.

This proves once again that the media will do anything, anything to keep us from looking at what is an actual horror, the selling of baby parts.

Lastly for the culture of death is this article by Rachel Larimore of Slate she writes about the Most Meaningless Abortion Statistic Every

According to Planned Parenthood abortions make up only 3 percent of the services they provide.  However, what does that really mean kindly Ms. Larimore provides and example:

Undoubtedly, some of those services are cheaper than others: To illustrate this, let’s make a comparison with an actual business. Say I open a watch store. I sell lots of those cheap plastic digital ones that you can get at discount stores. And I sell some Timex and Casio, and also some nicer designer watches. But then I also keep a few superexpensive Brightlings and Patek Phillipes in stock. And maybe those only make up 3 percent of my sales. But selling only a handful of fancy watches brings in far more than 3 percent of my REVENUES. And so it is with abortion.

Planned Parenthood gets at least a third of its clinic income—and more than 10 percent of all its revenue, government funding included—from its abortion procedures.

Ask anyone who runs a for-profit business or nonprofit charity if something that brings in one-third of their revenue is “central” to their endeavor, and the answer is likely to be yes.

So yes only 3 percent but that 3 percent funds most of their revenue proving that it is the most important part of what Planned Parenthood does because it brings in the most money.

And that is it for Frenetic Friday.

 

 

Frenetic Friday


Hello and welcome to another Frenetic Friday!  I’m properly caffeinated for this so let’s begin!

Speaking of caffeine do you buy your coffee at Starbucks?  Are you someone who likes those creamed and whipped and candied drinks well then here is an instagram that should give you some information regarding how many calories you are consuming opposed to a plain black cup of joe.

How many calories are in a drink from Starbucks

Personally speaking I don’t like Starbucks or as I call it Five Bucks coffee but I have been tempted by those dessert coffees now I’m convinced to pass them by before I have a bypass.

Do you listen to Podcasts?  I do some on my list are the Dividing Line, Apologia Radio, Reformed Pubcast and Albert Mohler’s the briefing. In fact it was the briefing that I heard about Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood who stated that: “For me, I’m the mother of three children. For me, life began when I delivered them. They’ve been probably the most important thing in my life ever since. But that was my own personal decision.”

So let’s examine that statement.  For those nine months that she carried those children in her womb in her mind they weren’t truly her children until they were delivered.  I can’t begin to imagine feeling that baby move inside, feel the kicking, hearing the heartbeat when the doctor checked the health of the baby.  Did she think it was protoplasm when she saw the ultrasound?  And she thought this about three children.  How would you explain that to your children?  Why yes Timmy until the doctor actually delivered you I thought you were just a blob of flesh not really a person in fact Timmy I would have had no problem ending your life 24 hours previous to your delivery.  Truly the culture of death is incomprehensible.

Switching to tech news, how do you feel about lamp posts?  Me I like them I walk frequently either late at night or early in the morning so seeing the road ahead of you is big for me.   So what if these lamp posts had LED screens to show ads?  What if they had microphones and cameras installed in them to record what you were doing?   These new lamp posts that are being rolled out have a microprocessor similar to an iPhone and have installed them homeland security apps!  Not only can they record conversations and take pictures but they have a built in speaker that can tell you what to do also!  Shades of George Orwell its big brother lamp posts! 

Do you remember the Back to the Future Films?  In Back to the Future 2 Marty had a pair of Nike kicks that tied themselves well Nike has said that in 2015 they are rolling out a set of shoes that have power laces that tie themselves.  Personally I’m still waiting for my flying car from the Jetsons.

Switching back to culture Matt Walsh says that America is too smart to listen to Beyonce.  In the post Matt points to Beyonce’s “song” Partition in which a certain sex act is sung about.  Now Matt firmly points to the fact that this song is hypersexual in it’s lyrics, which really isn’t a surprise to anyone, but Matt goes beyond that and points out that the lyrics are hyperstupid and that is why listening to Beyonce is killing your brain.  Here is your brain, here is your brain on Beyonce any questions?

And lastly here is a list of the names of 50 people found in the Bible and confirmed by archaeologically.

Have a good weekend.
