Instant message chat with Steve Evans

me: I think the TV series I Spy is due for a movie treatment.
Stephen: um
me: Except, instead of black, one of the spies would be … MORMON
Stephen: you know that they made an I Spy movie, right?
me: No, I did not know that.  I bet it blew.
Stephen: it did.
me: Who played the Mormon?
Stephen: Shut up

SuperFreakonomics and Carbon Emissions

October 28th, 2009 by Bruce Nielson

I noted recently the debate sparked by the (at the time yet to be released) book, SuperFreakonomics, on the topic of Global Warming.

First, my own biases. I’m a cap and trade advocate, not because I think the science of human-made-global-warming is proven, but because the science of it’s not human-made-global-warming isn’t proven.

Hic Est Corpum Meum

October 28th, 2009 by Adam G.

Wretchard writes

Perhaps the greatest service that religion once rendered to Western civilization was providing the individual with a real or imagined hotline to God. Whether this was simply a conceit or not let us set aside for the moment. For as long as man imagined himself to be sacred and accountable to the Creator he stood at the center of polity. The state was there to serve him and not the reverse. Today he has lost that central place and is no more or less than a collection of curiously animated chemical substances with a market value of less then fifty dollars which the state has deigned to keep alive until some bureaucratic panel decides it is too expensive to do so. Just as Global Warming can be understood at one level as an attempt to bring nature into the purview of politics, it is impossible to understand the Left’s fixation with abortion except as a sacramental affirmation of the state’s power over man. The strident insistence on abortion on demand goes way beyond any conceivable need to prevent backroom abortions, or even an affirmation of a woman’s right to choose. It is really an absolute display of the power of politics over life. Abortion’s principal utility is as a stake driven through the heart of the notion of human sacredness, which once performed, ought to prevent its revival entirely.
