natural vs supernatural

The geological forces that are going on today have always gone on at the same sort of range of speeds, and with the same sort of results. All natural actions, and results, no supernatural. For anyone to say that something happened by god will require extremely good proof, as extraordinary results require extraordinary proof. Consider the biblical flood. How big was the known world, that is know to the survivors in the days of walking on foot, perhaps horses, where long distance travel was limited to the sort of distances horses could travel, day after day in pre-road days. Perhaps 7 days wide, perhaps 300 miles. So when the Black Sea flooded after the ice age ended... some 8000 to 9000 years ago, and a barn may have floated, and perhaps someone had seen the ice damn, and realized it would melt and built a float-able barn for the farm animals, and no one was recording time in a meaningful way... what happened?  So what ever happened must match the geological record. A big part of story telling is making it seam more interesting than it actually is.

So the geological record must be physically true, and the supernatural explanation is just wrong hypothesis. Is any thing else logical? So then the 6000 year old earth, is just bullshit. Bullshit has a definition; the author does not know and does not care if the statement is true or not. That is the best expression of the probable outcome.

The Dark Force and Other Uncertainties

The Canadian Science Council has decreed that dark energy or the dark force is likely centrifugal force created by this sphere, with a radius of at least 13.8 million light years wide, spinning in three directions or rolling through space. As we cannot see beyond this dimension, we have no reference points to measure from, so we are unable to determine the rate of spin other than from the forces created by the centrifugal force. This is as logical as we can get from the information available. This can be amended with any additional physical evidence.

The Canadian Science Council has decreed there are no god or gods, rather these are concept hypothesis of such being passed down through the generation as an explanations uncertainties of the mind. Some would rather have a false explanation than deal with an unknown. This is as logical as we can get from the information available. This can be amended with any additional physical evidence.

The Canadian Science Council has decreed that the human does not have a soul or spirit. It just seems like it to the human mind, another simple but wrong explanation for consciousness. We are what we are, a thinking organism in an animal body. The Greeks and Romans explained this as we were the decedents of animal humans and intelligent gods, which is another wrong explanation, as yet unknown in detail method that we developed intelligence and self awareness. As there is nothing that survives death of the physical body, there is no afterlife or reincarnation. These concepts are supernatural and do not exist in the physical world. If you wish to live in a fantasy world, just do that on your own nickle. This is as logical as we can get from the information available. This can be amended with any additional physical evidence.

The Canadian Science Council has decreed dark matter is likely neutron cloud, or similar unattached particles that have no charge, similar to hydrogen atoms that the positron has be annihilate by low energy electrons or electron collision. This is as logical as we can get from the information available. This can be amended with any additional physical evidence.

The Canadian Science Council has decreed that all religions are feeble attempts of our ancestors to control future generations, or to give them a quick start into education. As what is taught is wrong, it is actually a handicap. We can do better by eliminating all the supernatural concepts and admit that there is much we do not yet know, and some of what we profess to know is actually wrong. But which? We can define how we should live or at least basic principles fairly easily by taking that which is common to most religions. This is as logical as we can get from the information available. This can be amended with any additional physical evidence.

Religion is Irrational,

Religion is irrational, there can be little debate about that. Well, there can be little rational debate over that. There is no physical god. God's that exist in the mind of the religious person exist in the realm if concepts, ideas, and fairies. These are just not rational. So why do nations trust the direction of their country to people who are not rational?

http://freethinker.co.uk/2017/07/06/artefacts-for-museum-of-the-bible-were-looted-from-iraq/ reminds us that they hold dollars and conviction to their cause higher than the law. Oh well, law is just rigid application of a principal, not logic. There are always exceptions, but really Omar Kandr. They should have awarded a apology for violating his civil rights, and taken his citizenship away or a one dollar award.

Having said once again that there is no physical god, anyone who is bothered by that is the equivalent to sticking there head into the sand, if any bird actually does that. Oh well. But so many people insist that there is a god, and when opposed, just physically attack. It is not rational to try to govern through fear, but trump and others try to.

It is not rational to think that the natives can hold this country ransom much longer. We are seeing the start of civil unrest, and the police are taking what action they see fit, given the situation. The native culture does not handle reality well either. When the Governor General reminded them that they too were immigrants, he was forced to retract his statement, likely under threat of firing. At that point it says money talks, truth walks out the door with integrity.

Immigration is often not understood. It is not a decision toward something, but rather a survival method, to leave a bad situation, and to go elsewhere. The decision becomes 'pick the best of the choices', not pick the best. It is more governed by the push away than the pull toward. Canada has a reputation for allowing people in, not as an attraction. It becomes running from something, not to something. Oh well, we go through life making the best available choices as decisions.  The zero alternative, the do nothing choice, must also be considered.

So the big question is how do we promote critical thinking, abcdefg's. How do we get people back to reality? How do we get people, how can live comfortably in their heads, back to face the barbs of reality? But it is not my place to say how people should live. How do I get myself back to reality, and the world can go screw itself.

Omar was a terrorist, terrorist sympathizer, or terrorist in training, for he was with the terrorists.

Reconciliation

Reconciliation yay sure.
rec·on·cil·i·a·tion
ˌrekənˌsilēˈāSH(ə)n/
noun
noun: reconciliation; plural noun: reconciliations
  1. 1.
    the restoration of friendly relations.
    "his reconciliation with your uncle"
    synonyms:reuniting, reunion, bringing together (again), conciliation, reconcilement, rapprochement, fence-mending; More
    pacification, appeasement, placating, mollification
    "the reconciliation of the disputants"

    So who are the natives trying to reconcile with? Themselves? The natives do not get along with themselves. They attack the hands that feed them. See "the rabid squaw", just google it and know that the AHS lost two of there diversity group.
     
    There must be discussion with the two parties to reconcile. The government does not really speak for the people, and does not know how we feel. We have never been asked on this subject. They are not reconciling with the population. 
     
    As long as they live on reserves and reproduce like rabbits, they cannot reconcile with the economy, nor with those who are forced off the reservations due to the inter-native bigotry. 
     
    Their preference, well of many of them, is to not prepare themselves for work. Education is often ignored, and they want top dollar for poor work attitude. So they cannot reconcile with the working world. 
     
    In order to reconcile with anything, they must change, for the world outside of them is not going to change for them. Reconciliation means changing themselves. They do not yet seem to be aware of this yet. Oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.

The Season of Discontent

At what point do societies become ungovernable? Most of the people are discontent, and when something more than 50% become discontent, is the country really governable anymore? The condition of trump's USA, where money control really lies with the elected Congress, well control of the major flow of the money at least, requires some agreement. But is this enough for a country to run smoothly? Not likely.

Here in Canada we have a liberal government spending like drunken sailors, much of it aimed at appeasing the natives and to buy the native and new immigrant votes in the next election. No amount of money will ever do it due to economic adaptation by the chiefs, little trickles down to the lower natives. That is a no win situation, but they are not happy; the young females keep running of and screwing themselves into poverty, drugs, alcohol, and/or the predators get them.

The young are not interested in much beyond alcohol, drugs, money, cars and the like. They want big money, but without training. Oh well, they stay unemployed, and so often cannot keep jobs due to such poor attitudes toward work do not fit the industrial needs for employees.  Oh well, we have immigrants to do the work anyway.

As a retired person, I can see the struggle with and against the government. The government lays out a grandiose plan, but it is not supported by the people, yet we are forced to conform... well conform may be too strong of word, tolerate more like. We go along because it is easier that resisting. It just does not matter any more. We are not held together by government, it is just easier to go along that to do what is right. It is that old silent majority issue, those under light stress do not think there is a real choice, just more of the same. We are not hurting bad enough to do anything, but there is discomfort, and more to come likely.

The population is becoming segregated by cultures into ghettos, or enclaves of separate cultures. Not a good situation. Unless something is done, we are going to have a country that is ungovernable. Those that get elected by popularity are not able to run the country, those civil servants that know how to run the country, based on the existing regulation may need to do what they can to improve the situation, not just keep changing the situation. Based on the background of too much population of the world, and continued population growth, the solution will be a big population die off, hopefully in other areas first. Oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.
