Sheldon is a Doofus and Hawking is his Daddy

Stephen Hawking: Big Bang Didn't Need God

Ya gotta read it..  but here's the money quotes:

Hawking discussed the idea of a repeating Big Bang. He noted that in the 1980s, he and physicist Roger Penrose proved the universe could not “bounce” when it contracted, as had been theorized.

Therefore, time began at the moment of singularity, and this has likely occurred only once, Hawking said. The age of the universe — now believed to be about 13.8 billion years — fits that model, as the number and maturity of observed galaxies seem to fit in the general scheme.


He closed by outlining "M-theory," which is based partly on ideas put forward years ago by another famed physicist, Caltech’s Richard Feynman. Hawking sees that theory as the only big idea that really explains what he has observed.
M-theory posits that multiple universes are created out of nothing, Hawking explained, with many possible histories and many possible states of existence.
In only a few of these states would life be possible, and in fewer still could something like humanity exist. Hawking mentioned that he felt fortunate to be living in this state of existence.

'Na-o-w, Ah'm jest a poor dumb hick but somethin' don't smell 'xackly right.

Assuming this is all provable by math, even if Sheldon Cooper has to turn every wall in his apartment building into a white-board, that math must have a starting point.. or KNOWN QUANTITY to begin with. OR an 'energy' as in something causing an event.

If the universe, however many dimensions, starts from nothing then that would be ZERO.  What sort of math operates starting with zero and ends up with a provable quantum?

Well, here's Hawking's explanation. Note the allegories and explanation of nothing.

Positive and Negatives perfectly balanced out.  Like +3 added to - 3. That, too, adds to zero but does not equate to nothing. both quantities are SOMETHING.

Or does the math proving M theory only exist in other dimensions?  How do you prove that?

Even assuming that classical physics only works in our dimensional universe, I still dont see how you get something from nothing.  The only way to do that would be for gravity and anti-gravity, and matter and anti-matter, to cancel out. But they are still something.   That leaves time. And time starts from an event, as Hawking says.  Suppose there was no time.  How do we know there was no other dimension equating to time?  Which influenced the start of time in our tangible dimensions? Creating the event starting time. Event suggest an energy applied. Energy is not nothing. E=MC2 and all that.

You cant make something from nothing without adding. And if you add, then you are adding something.  So you aren't starting with 'zero' after all. 

Unless this whole huge cosmos is only in God's mind.

Ricin Letters mailer caught: Let the feeding frenzy begin

So, as the investigation of the Boston bombings continues, two letters which may or may not contain Ricin, a deadly poison. were sent to Senator Tom Wicker and Pres Obama.

And the FBI has the culprit in custody. Already.  And he's apparently a Gun Loving, Bible believing, Liberty loving, corruption hating, Elvis impersonating activist.

.. from Mississippi!   AND a paranoid nutjob.

And here's just how hard it was for a small time LadyBlogger to track him down, which turned out;  NOT VERY!

Paul Kevin Curtis Arrested for Ricin Letters

Follow that blog for all sorts of links to the evidence.

The bottom line, of course is the Libs and Lefties have more grist for their anti-gun, anti Tea Party hate.
Because FINALLY a guy who probably actually was at a Tea Party event sometime, somewhere.
Nutjobs roam free.

Brushfires of the Insanities: Boston Trutherism Begins

In my earlier post, Patriot Day Juxtapositions, I recounted the efforts of various Lefty scribblers and public troughfeeders, such as Barney 'steaming pile' Frank, to politicize the carnage.
But quick as you can say 'Alex Jones' there's conspiracy theories aplenty.  We'll barely bother with  the possibly mental defective, Jones.
His site's version is so full of crap it should be obvious, from the beginning: "THERE WERE BOMB DOGS THERE, BEFORE... .  "

"The bomb at the Kennedy Library.."
- Uh, yes there were dogs -of course- and no it wasnt a bomb. 
‘Suspicious’ fire at Kennedy Library remains under investigation
It MAY have been set as a diversion, but it was in a mechanical room, in an isolated part of the building.  If it was related and intentional then why not go all out and pull away more response teams? 

The most pathetic and outrageous I've seen is an obscure lefty Aussie Film and Theatre critic.. you know those guys. His finger is REALLY on the pulse of reality..
"It's most likely the work of the NRA!!"  And if not them, then the notoriously vicious and radical Tea Party. Or the CIA. Or the Pentagon...
CERTAINLY it couldnt have anything to do with Al-Q.. it was too small and they didnt claim it.
- Never mind their magazine showed how to build this exact type of bomb.

Why the NRA? OBVIOUS.. the race was dedicated to Newtown victims.
And the guy doesnt just  post this once.. he has FOUR rants up on it, check his sidebar.

Read it for yourself, I'm pretty sure it's safe for your computer but I'm putting up an indirect link so there's no trail from my little rant blog to his whopping pile of horse shit.
Link through Google
Read the comments too... these people are INSANE!

Patriot Day Juxtapositions

There's lots of questions to be answered about the Boston bombings, including why and who..  smart not to jump to conclusions this early of course.  Though one thing that struck me is this is infrequent, but not for lack of bombers' intentions. A huge number of attempts have been foiled.

Obvious thing is it's a terrorist. No other possibility.
 No need not to pontificate though..

Politico: How long until we know?

I want to know the cause -- not because I'm eager to politicize the tragedy, but because I want to know where our national conversation is headed. A great deal of political, financial and emotional capital depends on the answer to that question.

'Not because you're eager to politicize..' yeah, r-i-i-g-ht!  And when you see where the 'national conversation is headed', THEN what?

Then there's the Massatooshits Pol who needs a handler following him with a baggie inside out on his hand:
 BARNEY FRANK: In this terrible situation, let's be very grateful we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, has been for some time, to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think is their assessment of health care. Here we saw government in two ways perform very well. First of all, the city government in charge moved efficiently and rapidly and bravely.
Excuse me?  So this shows we need more taxes?!!!!
In the video's what I see is everyone acting instinctively.. Many civilians did what should be done.  When the cops reacted in a split second to protect a down runner, that wasnt government, that was human!
Note: The anchor, MSNBC !!!, asked  Frank if he wasn't politicizing.  Of course the despicable pile of excrement denied it.. it's how he thinks.

The Sequester and the horror..
Steny Hoyer suggests that the attacks provides the latest proof that Congress needs to repeal the sequester. Has he thought this one through?
Salon: Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American

There is a double standard: White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists are existential threats

 What bullshit!  McVey was not exactly a 'Lone Wolf'.  What he's really referring to is the Arizona and Colorado theater shootings.  Where, as you will recall, the immediate media reaction by the leftist press was to try to link the shooters to the Tea Party.  That's ON RECORD, not my 'opinion'
David Sirota.. a real 'Thinker'.
How many of the foiled terror attempts, since 9/11, were inspired by Al-Q sympathies?

What would he have to say about the Fort Hood shooter?  Is it true or not that the administration is treating him as a 'Lone Wolf?  When facts show he was induced by Islamic militant preaching?  He also didn't address the foiled attempts and who was behind them.. Sirota - idiot or Liar. Since he pretends to be a journo, tells me he's a liar.

Good thing there's no political angle, there.

On the other side. Peter King couldn't help himself, either:

Rep. Peter King: Bombings Signal ‘The New War With Al-Q

Well, it MAY.  As King says in the actual quotes. {Why I dont like NewsMax, they are as sensational as the lefties}

 But we don't know yet, do we. The Al-Q 'cookbooks' for kitchen bombs are widely available on the net.

And Limbaugh has come perilously close to being over the top;  by saying if it turns out to be AlQ"The left will go into spin mode to minimize the dangers." 

I agree with that, but there's plenty of time to make that point.. WHEN it happens.

Kids, Parents, 'The Village' and Guns

This is one of those 'blanket' posts where I try to tie things together as I see them.  There's LOTS of consternation on the 'Obsession with Guns' going around in the Media.. as well as that of what it takes to raise a kid.

When I was a kid, I loved shooting guns, especially .22's but I never cared much for hunting. My first game kill at about age ten, was a sitting rabbit at about six feet. I blew half of the bunny's head off. My dad chided me for that; I thought 'what;s the big deal.. it's for the table and less shot to pick out'.
The last incident was of a family hunting party at Thanksgiving in my early teens.  We were 'sweeping' a cornfield, A rabbit jumped up and I led him around, fired, and the shot kicked up dirt about ten feet in front of my uncle.  I immediately, and without comment from anyone, took myself and my shotgun back to the house and never hunted in a group again.  Now... even though I was young, I thought about those incidents a lot. And I came to wonder why I joined in hunting when I didn't even like the taste of game, either Pheasant or Rabbit.
But I kept shooting.  Using both rifle and pistol to kill rats around the farm.  I loved to shoot and frankly spilling a Norway Rat's guts or brains all over never bothered me one bit.  Bear in mind the context, folks. If you were raised on a farm, and yet it would bother you to do or see that, there is something wrong with you.  Or your parents.
Now you have my mindset; hunting wasn't for me but I never begrudged others based on my preferences and distastes.  I also understood the propaganda value of 'Bambi' and how it was misused by the 'Urban, Informed Elite' LONG before the deer population became a nuisance.
Fast forward to trying to raise my own kids.  Never a gun in the house. Why would there be.. lived in a nice secure whitebread suburb, with no rats of any consequence to shoot.. only squirrels and possums and that's not allowed in the village limits. And if I needed a gun for some reason, Dad lived only a couple blocks away.
Looking back, I consider that a parenting failure on my part.  Leading, perhaps, to one of my kids getting shot by air rifle making a dumb video and a pellet embedded perilously close to his eye.  If I had done my duty as a father of boys, I would have instructed all of them on the responsibilities surrounding using and playing with guns.

But to this day, I still don't have a gun of my own. I see no need for it as long as my neighbors and friends have the right to own and carry.  And as long as it is confidential as to who  actually HAS a firearm in their possession at any time.  There is strength and protection in that.
I posed a rhetorical question to a 'Progressive' former friend of mine some time ago: "If you knew there was a man or group going around your neighborhood and robbing /killing, would you try to do them harm to stop them?"

He replied that he would not, implying "Turn the other cheek".

Note that I said 'former friend'. He is at the most a liar, and at least selfish in his negligence in duty to his community.  But then he's a Progressive and lies with impunity; probably not even realizing it.  And whoever is preaching in his church that he claims to attend every Sunday does not understand the Bible.
So let's look at this and decide who is absurd and who is 'correct':

 Note that Ventura was not prepared for the question regarding Western Europe or he COULD have pointed to the 'Lethal Weapon' Assault rate. Where there is not so large a difference.
I'm selfish, too. I don't care for doing my part to protect my friends and neighbors, so I still don't have a firearm handy.  But I will support the rights of others to do so and place my trust in them to manage them responsibly.. and without registering with the federal government.
Anti-Gun Conspiracy?  No!
There is no need for a 'conspiracy' when there is a well established narrative promoted by those who have never had to live in the 'Real World'.And you know what I'm talking about.
In the halls of academia, talking and verbalizing is the same as 'doing'.  And if the dialog becomes too contentious, then the majority of voices tries to still the lesser viewpoint.  Reason is based on 'the obvious' postulated by those who have been in the classroom all their lives.  Thus we have Freedom to Follow, instead of freedom of belief.

And of course, the least must be protected and managed by taking away the right of the majority, even if they have proven beyond doubt to be responsible.
It's time for us to give up on the 'reasoned' approach to dialog and start doing as Progressives do.. there are not TWO versions of the truth.  Twisted fact and narrative is an intentional lie, even if the speaker does not realize it.
Lies of the Progressive Hive-Mind: 
Young Gun Expert Pictured in Rolling Stone: ‘Inaccurate, Biased Article’
Note that the evocative opinion-twister didn't even bother to find and ask the subject.

the current storm over a mush head from MSNBC, parroting her academic based reasoning to advocate the community taking over the kids from the wrong-headed influence of their parents:

MSNBC Host Elaborates on Her Claim That Children Don't Belong to Their Parents

 Her points are well-taken, and they are prima-facie correct.  What she doesn;t seem to understand is that we have learned to see beyond the 'facts' and look at the extrapolation of it.  We already consign our kids to the public education system where their young skulls full of mush are subjected to the whims and whimsies of those with no experience in real life business, economic, or survival situations.   And where the 'safety net' is so broad that the young are raised to believe that their success depends on 'Big Brother' in Washington, rather than their own ambitions and initiatives. 

In that, we have all failed as a 'village'.
But I ask you to consider my opening story.  I was raised to be independent. When I saw that my hunting might put someone in danger, I made a decision. It wasn't made FOR me. When I elected not to be a gun-owner, it was my decision.  And, for the moment, it still is my decision.  
Are you going to tell me that I am smarter than most people?  
If so, pay attention to my other opinions!

Another Mass Attack by White Male gone berserk.. explained by a Beta male

Lone Star College stabbing: At least 14 wounded, suspect in custody

I'm gonna make some GIANT assumptions here:
Student was bullied verbally because he was fond of carrying around a stuffed animal. Because of that insensitive bullying he snapped, found a sharp object and struck back.
1. Arrest people for unkind/belittling/ personally offensive comments.
2. Arrest those who carry sharp objects
2 a {just because it's obvious} Arrest for Running with Scissors.

-- OR --

His parent(s) (I'm betting he was raised by a PC single mom) could have encouraged him not to take shit from people, even if it meant {gasp, shudder, OMG!!} last resort physical violence like popping someone in the mouth, even if he ended up getting his ass kicked.
Take it from me, I was skinny, wore glasses, got picked on some, and got my ass kicked several times. NEVER won it. 
And by my junior year in HS, I got along with just about everyone just fine, and never fantasizing about killing anyone, ... anymore.  :)

 Now.. IF you are wondering WHY these guys are seemingly ALL WHITE MALE... now you know. 
Parents raising pussies!
And if you dont like my language.. tough!

'Beta Male', you ask... yep.. cause I never wanted to be a 'Leader of Anything'. Rather just give my opinion on 'how to'.
