If homosexuality is genetic, that
means behavior is genetic. Which means that since one race receives
more Nobel prizes than others, then this behavior too is genetic.
Let's see...one race is smarter than the others because behavior is
genetic. Sounds as though endorsing homosexuality as genetic means
you are endorsing racism.
Which reminds me of previous
thoughts: If a couple could detect that their offspring was going to
be homosexual, then would it be wrong to abort it on that basis? I
mean it's just a blog of tissue right? Are some blobs more equal than
I was wondering about a principle,
where for every 2 moderate votes the Republicans attempt to gain,
they lose 4 conservatives. Not exact numbers, but it's the idea.
So...I see color newsletters about Christian converts in Muslim
lands. There's a picture of an older woman in the traditional burqa,
and a young convert in a strappy little blouse with lots of skin
showing. Think how that must look in that society. But hey, is she
just imitating what she sees the Western Christian women wearing? Is
there a principle of convert 1 lose 500? the apostle Paul talked about being context sensitive.
If you work on cars, you might relate
to this: for whatever reason, I avoided front end work in all the
years I've owned vehicles, which is about 34 years. I've done most
everything else, but not that. So I've driven cars that wore the
front tires unevenly, but just put used tires on. The truck I have
now though, needed some front end work, and I didn't want to pay the
$900 or whatever the going rate is. So I set about learning and doing
that which I've put off.. So far so good. I've done the upper and
lower ball joints on both sides, along with the outer tie rod ends on
both sides. I'm about to do the rest, which includes the two inner
tie rod ends, the pitman arm, and the idler arm. The parts are
ordered, I'll pick them up in a couple days. I'm hoping I don't have
to do the control arm bushings, they felt pretty solid when I had the
truck jacked up, but I'll see when this step is done. It will be a
relief not only to get it done, but to have conquered that which I've
I have a website that is about my
commercial work. At that site, I have a page that documents an
experimental way of painting an 85 foot long rail car. There are new
regulations about spray painting, which would have been a hassle to
conform to. Painting with a brush and roller is outside the
regulations. The paint that is normally used won't allow anything but
spray painting, but I found an exception to this constraint, if done
in an exacting way. That's what the page is about, using this well
known paint on a rail car with a roller.
What's interesting is how many guys
(women are smarter?) are wanting to paint their car with a roller.
The search engines look for the nearest thing, which is my web page
about “paint a rail car with a roller”. The web traffic is great,
and the info is still very relevant to what they're doing, but the
other day I crashed the page, and couldn't immediately find the back
up text. Years ago, I read a guy on a blog warning his readers to be
careful what they say, that everything on the Internet is archived.
So I decided to try and find an archived version of the page. My site
doesn't have nearly the traffic that a lot of sites get, but it's
getting around 6000 visits a month, which might be enough for the
archive site to notice.
A brief search showed that there is
really only one site doing the archiving, so I went there. They have
no record of the my page or site. There is talk of the government
recording everything on the Internet, but that's not something
ordinary people can access. Of course Facebook probably has a
different archive reality. Which reminds me of a thought I had a
while back: It is known that the democrats were very active at
getting the vote out, canvasing neighborhoods and the like. Was a big
contribution to Romney's loss the fact that the Democrats had real
activism, while the Republicans sent each other pre fabricated
Facebook posts about how bad President Obama is?
