A STUDY IN ETHICS – THE TRUMP VICTORY

AN ETHICAL VICTORY

Donald Trump’s run for the White House was an ethical victory.  Absolutely.

Ethics Wins The Day

Ethics Wins The Day

Why?  Well, truth defines ethics, and truth prevailed throughout.  Trump said he was going to win.  His way.  Despite the odds, he made good on his promise.  He won.  His way.  He won without the usual financial war chest.  He campaigned using his own money, spending FAR less than the competition—far less in fact than anyone else had spent in recent history.  He prevailed entirely in his own way, as he said he would, against all odds, and he did it honestly, calling it as he saw it from beginning to end. 

The Republican establishment was actively against him from the get-go; he was given no favors—quite the contrary.  The land mines were everywhere.  The opposition ridiculed him

GLOBAL WARMING? CLIMATE CHANGE?

THE HOAX OF GLOBAL WARMING

This comes from one of our original blogs about global warming.  It’s still current.

I’ve been a geologist for more than half a century (and an engineer as well for about 8 years during that time).  Geology being the science of the earth naturally includes the environment (which IS Earth).  Typically, we geologists begin our investigations by observing and documenting current conditions, then working backward to determine how they got that way.  We do this using, among other tools, the method of multiple working hypotheses devised by T.C. Chamberlin, an American geologist who died before my time; it has found its way into other forensic sciences.  Essentially, it involves looking at current conditions and investigating simultaneously, without prejudice, every conceivable path that might have led to the current situation.  This method will necessarily inglobal_warming_by_teabing1clude chasing down dead ends and correcting wrong turns, but it has the advantage of identifying false and misleading information and enhancing the credibility of the conclusion.  It is, if anything, a thorough and exhaustive approach.  And it’s the key to evaluating climate change.

UNETHICS OF ISLAM:   A POLITICALLY-INCORRECT EXPOSE

The American citizen’s religious freedom is guaranteed by our Constitution—and we should ‘cling to (our) guns and religion…’ as stated so derisively by our Leader-From-Behind) in the face of anyone who tries to compromise it.  We also should not condone the religious freedom of non-citizens whose culture opposes the laws of our nation—this includes the Sharia law which is part and parcel of Islam.  We don’t have to, nor should we, honor it.  One of the requirements of our citizenship is to live by the law of the land, not by some law of choice.

Every citizen is governed by our Constitution.   Try as some might to deny it, our nation was founded on primarily Judeo-Christian principles while not purposely excluding those of other faiths.  Reading the founding documents and the considerable literature (Federalist Papers) describing what the founders had in mind when they wrote them makes this quite clear.

Ours is not a government OF THE PEOPLE;  it is instead a government of representatives of the people.  This government is fashioned so as to develop a cadre of virtually permanent ‘representatives’ headquartered in Washington D.C.  It’s not by chance that some of the richest counties in the U.S. comprise the greater D.C. area.  Our government consists of some very wealthy people who are years past listening to their constituencies (THE PEOPLE–US) .  They pass legislation favorable to themselves and exempt themselves from many of the laws that they pass for the public generally.  They are more properly classified as a ruling elite, not a representative government.

A few examples of ‘elite privilege’:

ISLAM, THE RELIGION of PEACE

THE THREAT of ISLAM, THE RELIGION of PEACE

This begins a series of blogs regarding Islam and the real threat imposed upon the Western World. You are welcome to disagree that Islam poses a threat, but before you go public, best you read the Qu’ran (Koran).  The threat is explicit therein.

Here is a perspective by Dr. Peter Hammond. Dr. Hammond’s doctorate is in Theology.  He was born in Cape Town in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977.

ISLAM is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.  Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamisation begins when there are sufficient Muslims in

THE ETHICS OF ATHEISM II

ETHICS of the NEW ATHEISTS  (Concluded)

That part of the quintessential life force residing in the individual you is what identifies you. It is who you are—your self And it simply is, always has been, and always will be.  This concept (soul) is not an easy one to appreciate, but then neither is eternity, infinity or quantum theory.  Atheism rejects this concept.

Consciousness existed before the universe—it is the foundation of the universe and, as such, cannot be explained by science, which is a product of it and therefore unable to explain its parent.  In fact, consciousness cannot be explained by any conventional method.  It is known to exist simply because it does.  It must.

Every cause has an effect and every effect a cause, but it stands to reason that there must have been an
