A Beautiful Day

If one knows what one is up against, one may prepare to deal with it.

My dear Prof Marvel,

This is what you would call commentary. The People who are trying to turn us against our government choose their words very cleverly and subtly. And since words are what make up laws, by altering the meaning of a word, you can alter the force of a law. When I become aware of the alteration, I can track the meaning back to the original and see what was intended when the law was written and how the new reading is used to hoodwink you and your fellows. Do you remember military jargon and lingo from your days afloat? Some of it was based on common words used in new ways. How about “Off Limits” as an example. Remember that? What does it mean in Liz’ English and what in Military argot? How about that time your girlfriend got “in the family way”? Driving a motor vehicle vs. traveling by automobile… Line ’em up.

How do you effect the separation of the People from their government? Divide and rule would be a good way to start…you could assume control of the Professors and work outwards from there. You wouldn’t bag all of them but, with some good bait, you could catch most of them…incrementally.

Now for a quote from Washington (George, not D.C.).

October 24, 1798
Mount Vernon, October 24, 1798.

George Washington Snyder

Revd Sir: I have your favor of the 17th. instant before me; and my only motive to trouble you with the receipt of this letter, is to explain, and correct a mistake which I perceive the hurry in which I am obliged, often, to write letters, have led you into. It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am.

The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a separation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.

My occupations are such, that but little leisure is allowed me to read News Papers, or Books of any kind; the reading of letters, and preparing answers, absorb much of my time. With respect, etc. 6 [Sounds like something a professor of my acquaintance might have said. —Ed.]

And another:
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens,) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove, that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government. But that jealousy, to be useful, must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defence against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation, and excessive dislike of another, cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots, who may resist the intrigues of the favorite, are liable to become suspected and odious; while its tools and dupes [useful idiots] usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests. In other words, “If you hate the Republicans and love the Democrats, the Democrats can advance the will of the enemies of liberty and you will [enthusiastically] help them…” [Cite]


Ever your ob’t ser.,

DrP. etc., etc.

My dear Prof Marvel,

Atheism is all very well and good if it suits one’s temperament, but in the end, one is forced to believe things just as surely as if one were a Southern Baptist or a Cathar. If the whole thing were left to me, I would decree that everyone has to be an Agnostic unless he can prove otherwise to a Concatenation of His Peers. It would be sort of like a Factory Settings option. I am weary of the Atheist Philosophy because its adherents are such active evangelists and what do they want me to believe in? Nothing, that’s what! Sorry, Charlie, you will never shake my belief in the goodness of Man and the sacredness of Life. [P.C. Notice: By “man” I do not mean “men”, what I mean is Humanity. And, I do not single out Man for special attention at the expense of say, healthy rats with no health insurance, but just as a matter of staking out the territory and saying “no negativity here,” if you please. Leave it at the door and you can retrieve it when you go if you still want it. And, please tip the girl as she is putting her Grandmother through Junior College.] At convenient times, mainly when children are present, I firmly believe in the Easter Bunny and the Sandman. But I digress.

When antibiotics were first introduced, the inventor himself predicted that, if they should be overused, eventually they would become ineffective because so resourceful are the somatids that they will soon figure out how to get around these invented defenses against disease. When Monsanto began to introduce the patented seeds that resisted herbicides and produced their own insecticides, some people wondered what would happen as new strains of pests learned how to evade our most sophisticated designs. Now, we are finding out, as the corn-root-borers are making a comeback in the American Midwest and elsewhere in the World and the pernicious weeds are reestablishing their old digs among the plants that make money for us. What has this to do with Atheism? Just this: when we become certain that we know everything and it makes us proud, we had better be looking around to see who or what is ready to prove us wrong again. As you know, I am addicted to quoting the many geniuses out there who survived the wars (although some didn’t) and say things so much better than I ever could and so I offer a quote from one of Darwin’s mentors who wondered if Chuck hadn’t gone off the deep end and was in danger of leading a pack of duplicitous fools over the precipice of certainty and into the gloomy abyss of “I told you so…” I might add here that when Darwin’s disciple, Herbert Spencer, arrived in Chicago to make a speech, he was lionized as the bearer of a new Social Order. Even Spencer, though he appreciated the enthusiasm of the business community, doubted that it was a productive development and sincerely hoped it would evolve in the direction of more benign patterns as time went by.

Here are the words of Darwin’s sage old geology teacher, the Rt. Rev. Adam Sedgwick, late of Cambridge University:

Source: Nietzsche, Spencer, and the Ethics of Evolution
1972- Gregory Moore

From: The Journal of Nietzsche Studies
Issue 23, Spring 2002
pp. 1-20 | 10.1353/nie.2002.0005
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The Journal of Nietzsche Studies 23 (2002) 1-20

After receiving from Charles Darwin a copy of The Origin of Species and reading it with mounting horror, the Reverend Adam Sedgwick, professor of geology at Cambridge, wrote to his former pupil to admonish him:

There is a moral or metaphysical part of nature as well as a physical. A man who denies this is deep in the mire of folly. ‘Tis the crown and glory of organic science that it does through final cause link material and moral [. . .] You have ignored this link; and, if I do not mistake your meaning, you have done your best in one or two pregnant cases to break it. Were it possible (which, thank God, it is not) to break it, humanity, in my mind, would suffer a damage that might brutalize it.

Unsurprisingly, Darwin bitterly resented this stinging rebuke from his erstwhile mentor, yet for many later commentators Sedgwick’s objections seem wholly justified. Darwin may not, as Sedgwick assumed, have actively sought to divest nature of ulterior moral purpose and deprive human ethics of a firm foundation, but this is nevertheless precisely what the revolution that he set in motion accomplished. And its consequences were indeed potentially “brutalising.” For if humanity was merely one species of animal among others, subject to the same ceaseless struggle for life in a world bereft of the guiding hand of Providence, then selfishness had been bred into the very marrow of its being. Victorian decorum was only a thin veneer beneath which lurked a savage beast bent only on individual advantage. This, Gertrude Himmelfarb has concluded, was the “traumatic effect” of Darwinism: it “de-moralized man” by displacing “man by nature, moral man by amoral nature.” But how accurate an assessment is this of the shift in human self-understanding occasioned by the rise of evolutionary theory? To be sure, there were many in the nineteenth century who, like one dispirited young man after reading The Origin of Species at the age of sixteen, found themselves haunted by “a feeling of utter insignificance in face of the unapprehended processes of nature [. . .] a sense of being aimlessly adrift in the vast universe of consciousness, among an infinity of other atoms, all struggling desperately to assert their own existence at the expense of all the others.” But, as Robert J. Richards has exhaustively demonstrated, many—if not most—nineteenth-century evolutionists took a rather different view of the ramifications of Darwinism for human affairs. Their object was not to wrench apart the “material and moral”; on the contrary, they believed that they were able to knit these two worlds more closely together. Life could be reinfused with ethical significance by enlisting biology itself to legitimate and sustain the inherited values of Judeo-Christian civilization. For example, Ernst Haeckel, the leading apostle of Darwinism in Germany, dismissed in typically robust fashion the notion that evolution might entail “a subversion of all accepted moral law and a destructive emancipation of Egoism”; rather, he, like a whole host of scientists and philosophers, sought to formulate “a system of Ethics erected upon the indestructible foundation of unchanging natural law.” A moral sense could no longer be regarded as the sole prerogative of Man, for all social animals appeared to demonstrate a “sense of duty,” a willingness to sacrifice themselves for the greater good of their community. Nonhuman systems of ethics represented merely a stage in the gradual refinement of those noble instincts and patterns of cooperative behavior that provided the best adaptive response to the demands of a given environment. In short, evolution was envisaged as a moral process—the progressive development toward ever more perfect expressions of altruism, compassion, and love. FIN

      • Dear Morrie,

        If you are asking if I am remunerated, the truth is, I’m not. On the other hand, I am expecting to win the lottery at any moment (I have a ticket) and if you are faithful to the spirit of inquiry, I’ll share my winnings with you.

        In point of fact, my generous compensation is hearing from people like you who take the time to appreciate the material I present and then add their own insights, as you did. Believe me that is of greater value than a stack of dollar-denominated Federal Reserve notes (or Lira) useful though they are at the grocery store and the shoeshine stand. The bus is almost free when you can prove you’re old. Good luck!

        Here’s a bonus for you for when you check back: http://reducetheburden.org/?p=743

        Let me know if a Brazil nut sandwich made with fresh butter and whole-grain bread is any good as a restorative snack. I think lettuce might add something good.

        Yer friend,


      • Hi, Morrie,

        Are you still around? Hope so…

        Glad to have heard from you and hope you have been achieving your goals. One of these days, I’ll feel like my Ontology book is done and I will offer it for sale to defray the expense of publication. ‘Till then, I am trying to build up the suspense that results when people wonder, “If he’s givin’ this stuff away, what’s the other stuff like that he isn’t giving away?” Now that’s what I call Marketing with a capital “M”. My pride is that I am never satisfied with easy answers unless they are true and can, in some way, be proven. When the truth is seriously at variance with “what everybody knows”, I swing into action with the tools I have at hand. Sometimes it’s complicated to make things simple and comprehensible but I do my best. Wil o’Ockham advised us to stop when we’ve proved something and that’s good advice. Just don’t stop short and prove something else by leaving stuff out, o.k.?

      • Dear Melvina,

        I was always too dense to notice that I should be scared out of my wits. My lack of fear made me think that anything was possible. In order to discover what was possible, I had to know everything including what fearful people told me was impossible. It was the disputations that built up my neurons and allowed the insights entry. Once I had a chance to mull them over, they were clear enough in my mind to express in writing. I was lucky to be born too dense to be afraid.

        I hope you are lucky too, Melvina.

        Best wishes,


    • Dear Kay,

      Did we stop it? I know we tried. We also had some gobbledegook that crept in. I hope we got rid of that too.

      Hard at work to make Life a Thrilling Experience,



    • Yep I’m up for Season 2 although Kat say’s I can’t start a new team until I’ve antpied the existing one = (Although I’m still hopeful I can convince her to come in with either a Goblin or Snottling team purely for amusement value.As for changes I’ll put a vote towards the Free Fan Factor option rules from Pg 34 of the LTB5.What are you thinking about the length of the next season? I know some folks went crazy with games at the start of the last one but I still think 6 months gives everybody a chance to get involved even if they can only play infrequently.[]Craig Reply:November 23rd, 2009 at 5:34 pmI dunno about 6 months it’s been pretty clear for a while of season one who the top four were going to be. 6 months by get to be a bit of a drag.[]gav Reply:November 23rd, 2009 at 9:25 pmI’m not so certain people will throw in with quite the same intensity we had at the start of Season 1 though where sometimes people fit in one or two games a week.Plus a longer season actually gives the people who don’t have the opportunity to play that often to get in some more games and get in the standings.[]

    • I can’t make Friday either. I’d also perfer not to use the special cards. Although that might just be cos I know nothing about them.[]Dave Reply:January 14th, 2010 at 5:56 pmNeither do i Craig, thats why i’m giving them a go to see if they are any good[]

      • 16a119351ed I’m also writing to let you know of the exceptional experience my friend’s girl had as she enjoyed reading your blog. She noticed lots of things, most notably what it is like to have a great giving character to get others easily to learn about problematic subject matter. You actually delivered more than your visitors expected. Thank you for providing this insightful, safe, revealing and even fun guidance on this topic to Kate. 184

    • Dear Rosina,

      A debate is not an argument so your word is well-chosen. I am open to all comments and rarely take offense where none is meant. If you have something to add, I would like very much to hear it.

      My brother, also a sage, once said, “I see or hear something and that releases a chemical into my bloodstream. The chemical goes around and finds my brain where it stimulates a thought. That thought very often will lead to an action and that action sometimes leads to trouble. And that’s what it is to be a member of the species, Homo sapiens perplexens.” For myself, I am not sure that that is all there is to it.

      Thanks for taking the time to add your thoughts.

      Best of everything,


    • Dear Sharice,

      The email seems to be working but sometimes things get shunted to the “spam” folder. I check it for strays, ever so often but don’t catch them all.

      I am happy to help so try again.

      Best wishes,


  1. Things i have observed in terms of laptop memory is there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must fit the features of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is rather current and there are no operating system issues, replacing the ram literally requires under sixty minutes. It’s among the easiest pc upgrade treatments one can imagine. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  2. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to looking over your web page repeatedly.

      • Dear Michelle,

        There were fish that squirmed and wiggled and just went crazy when they saw a net. It was the Oourigan or candlefish (happy when lit). Any connection?

        Okay, how to write, by DrPangloss. M.Lit., D.Div. etc. First, think of a title. Put something on the hook you could catch tasty oourigans with. Regard the title for a moment and then add an adjective to every noun. Alright…so far, so good. Here’s an example: Can People Survive on a Diet of Mice? Then: Can Extreme Survivalist People Even Hope to Survive on a Meager, Disgusting Diet of Boney, Flea-Infested Church Mice (Mus musculus) or Not? Once you get to this point, start your first paragraph by simply going to Worcester’s Dictionary and defining every word in the title in the form of a sentence. As you hitch these defining sentences together like a railroad train, you start to get a coherent narrative. Add a few connectives and a few more adjectives and you’ve almost got your first paragraph!

        Leave it for now. In the second paragraph, say everything GOOD you can think of about whatever ended up in the first paragraph. [waiting] That’s done… Now, think of everything BAD you can imagine to say about what’s in the first paragraph and write that down. Home stretch: the last paragraph should sum up everything in the three paragraphs without exactly repeating sentences and then you draw a conclusion, like, “I’d have to be pretty desperate to ever eat a church mouse, God would punish me for sure!” If it needs to be a little longer for whatever reason, then write another paragraph where you pretend that the poor, demented soul who wrote paragraph 2 must have taken leave of his senses to think that mouse fur has any food value at all and so forth and stick it in between the third and the last. Then, sand the corners a bit, add a few more adjectives and you’re ready for some coffee.

        If you never study any grammar at all, make two exceptions: a) the uses of commas and b) the parts of speech. If you are the brightest bulb on the string, consider learning to parse a sentence according to Chomsky’s Rules. But that’s not really necessary, just the literary equivalent of Paradise which few of us will ever live to see. Q.E.D.

  5. “Physicists at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory are planning to announce Wednesday that they have found a suspicious bump in their data that could be evidence of a new elementary particle or even, some say, a new force of nature.

    The results, if they hold up, could be a spectacular last hurrah for Fermilab’s Tevatron, once the world’s most powerful particle accelerator and now slated to go dark forever in September or earlier, whenever Fermilab runs out of money to operate it.

    “Nobody knows what this is,” said Christopher Hill, a theorist at Fermilab who was not part of the team. “If it is real, it would be the most significant discovery in physics in half a century.”

    One possible explanation for this mysterious bump, scientists say, is that it is evidence of a new and unexpected version of the long-sought Higgs boson. This is a hypothetical elementary particle that, according to the reigning theory known as the Standard Model, is responsible for endowing other elementary particles with mass.

    Another explanation might be that it is evidence of a new force of nature — in addition to gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces we already know and are baffled by — that would manifest itself only at very short distances like those that rule inside the atomic nucleus.

    Either could shake what has passed for conventional wisdom in physics for the last few decades. Or it could be there is something they do not understand about so-called regular physics. ”

    • Dear Jacob,

      I have been following the action at CERN too. I stop sometimes at garage sales and a particular one is hosted betimes by a CERN whitecoat who has fascinating updates to share. Look elsewhere in these pages to see what I have learned.

      And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.

  9. Okay, we’ve all had a break since the end of last season, and seeing some of us were talking about “bloodbowl” the other day it’s time I put my tuppence in. I would like to see the use of the special play cards. Is anybody up for a game or two next Friday night? I was thinking of just using a one-off team just to use one or two new rules to see if they are any good. Though it doesn’t mean anybody else has to use a new team, it just means no xp will be given or there will be any deaths, for that matter.

  15. Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  16. I have got 1 suggestion for your web page. It appears like at this time there are a number of cascading stylesheet troubles when opening a number of webpages in google chrome and firefox. It is working okay in internet explorer. Probably you can double check that.

    • Posted on incredible, that was a very good read. In conclusion, someone who actually thinks and understands what they are blogging about. Quite difficult to find of late, especially on the web. I bookmarked your web blog and will make sure to keep coming back here if this is how you always write. Thank you, keep it up! .

  17. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Terrific blog!

  18. I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome website!

  19. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you

  20. I Am Going To have to come back again when my course load lets up – nevertheless I am taking your Rss feed so i could go through your blog offline. Thanks.

    • Dear Regim,

      Up front, no more than I am a Dr. (in the Medical sense) I am not a Lawyer (in the Legist sense). But here is a description of what I do to secure my property against theft or appropriation without permission. And, by the way, I don’t withhold permission unreasonably for use of my property if it is for a primarily educational, non-commercial purpose. Normally, I want to get the word out and try to be as generous as possible without adverse consequences.

      If you look around among the comments and replies, you will see a number of recommendations on how to present your valuable intellectual property and not lose contact with it. One way is to assert your copyright with the words, © Copyright 2012 [Put your name or Company Name here]. Once you’ve done that, you have pretty well protected your property. To further secure your property, make a print of it as it appears online or in the form it took when you created it and write on it in black ballpoint ink, the copyright notice above with the date and your autograph. Make a copy of that and write, “true copy” with autograph at the top in black ballpoint ink and put it in an envelope. Then, seal the envelope, address it to your Mother or a relative who lives in another state and give it to a clerk at the Post Office and request a “placed in the mails” receipt initialed by the clerk (small fee). When you talk to your Mom or relation, request that they not open the envelope but write the date of receipt on it and place it in the file marked, “Junior’s Copyright Documents”. You will now have a print, an autograph, and, if you wish, you can ask a friend to read it over and sign his name at the bottom (with date) and the legend “I read this and understood it”. Place all of this in a manila envelope with the receipt you got from the Post Office Clerk and close the clasp (no need to seal it). The point is, you took certain steps to make it clear that you consider the property copyrighted, and you can show evidence that on a date certain, you did all of the above things to memorialize your intention. Put it in the file so you’ll know where it is when someone appropriates your property without your permission so when you assert your property rights, you have something to go on. I use the term “you” in its general sense because I know nothing of your personal situation and am not a lawyer. The British say, “one” which makes it clear that the ‘you’ in the sentence could be anyone.

      The above might already be more than you wanted to know, but just in case you are interested, I read this [link] the other day and found it fascinating.

      I hope this is of some value to you and sparks further inquiry,

      Your friend,

    • Dear Hoot,

      Are you selling something? Is it good for humanity?

      Tell you what: I’ll let this one post for 10 days. If you make a positive verbal contribution to our enterprise, I’ll leave it up. If you make no effort to contribute, I’ll send your post to Sheol.

      It’s entirely up to you.


  22. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    • Dear Bayan,

      Moreover, there’s good news for Mac users who aren’t allergic to Zune;

      The Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac 1.0 is now available via the Mac App Store.

      Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac is a new software application that enables you to synchronize your favorite music*, videos*, photos* and podcasts* from iTunes and iPhoto. This software is not part of the Zune experience. In order to enjoy the Zune experience on Mac, you will need to install a Windows OS (XP or higher). Zune delivers music and video entertainment across Windows Phone 7, Xbox Live and Windows PC’s. *DRM Protected content will not be able to be synchronized with Windows Phone 7 but check the www for progress on that project.

      Isn’t this good news?

      Thanks for the input,


  23. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  24. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  25. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  27. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  31. Hmm is anyone else encountering issues with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a issue on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. 366829
