Pray for guidance or prey for guidance?
A mandate by the plurality of prayers may tip the balance to empirically endemnify god as a diety that smiles on America, however, the persistence of doubt lives on as we embrace the certitude of apoclyptic scripture. The forces of Jesus are destine to carry on the crusade against the dark forces of Allah, or, open up the windows, let the bad air out.

Intelligent design is the science of finding undemonstrated reasoning for phenomenon involved in life's creation. In the context of belief preceding understanding, undemonstrated theory may be the best case for Intelligent design to become the favored factor in explaining the miracle of life. Creating life outside the box through faith is "No Problem" for intelligent design and the Politics of Life Mousetrap.

Catholic priest, in his attempt to get closer to God, launched himself in a lawn chair tied to a 1000 helium filled party baloons. In a gust of wind he was up and off out to sea. No trace has been found after his cell phone went dead.

Perhaps he made it, there is to be said that no cell phone can pierce the veil of heaven.
Or, he may have wished to escape more priestly charges of pedophilia.

The Catholic Church has recently announced: Indulgences are to be given to those who leave huge carbon footprints. Persons or Corporations with big carbon feet are to be forgiven their transgressions, given the proper offset of gratuity. Carbon footprint indulgence is a recent attempt to gather up new guilt for the Holy Church. Through this process it is hoped their feet will shrink. Religious Conversions by force or by fraud are potent and effective methods to gain true believers.

The Meaning of Life part II

Before even introducing’ the meaning of life’, we must know what meaning and life is. The word meaning is to have a purpose, or to have a certain importance. The word life, in brief is formed and planets are formed by an ultimately powerful being, that we can call God. For centuries people have been trying to find the “true meaning of life”, but can never come across it. There is more then one true meaning of life. Everyone has there own meaning of life. That is why the meaning of life has been broken into three sections; Gods meaning of life, Natures meaning of life, and the Philosophical meaning of life. Gods meaning of life is very Biblical, but before knowing Gods thought of the meaning of life, we must know who god is. The LORD God formed man from the dust of the earth and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7He (God) heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground. Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp or by telegraph. He covers the sky with sprinkles, he sprinkles the sky with glitter. On the time scale of the history of the Earth an individual human lifetime is a mere blink of an eye. We're born, we live, and we die. What is the point of living? If we're all going to be dead in the end anyway, what difference does it make what we do with our lives? Does the finality of death make life meaningless? Why did an All-wise Creator put humans on this earth? Is there a meaning to human life, unrealized by most people? What is our origin? What is our destination? What is our purpose?
Humanity, it seems, fails to understand that purpose. The First consists of making known to you all the vageries of all the bounties from the True Bestower, and causing you to offer Him thanks. Be aware of this and offer Him thanks and worship; feast, dance and sacrifice lots for this is his thing.
The Second is to make known to you by means of each of all the sorts of the manifestations of the Sacred, the Divine Names manifested in this world that cause one to pause, to question, to wonder –– to doubt all the above reasons given for this or any other meaning for our existence. . .

Apostolic Penitentiary

Dear John, as you can see our logical (pragmatic) direction is to divert attention, from real tasks at hand and reach for that old postmodern patch to stick on.
The patch is "moral values" celebrate birth, mourn death and spew shibboleths while nodding (like wall bangers) in a haze of scripture. Indulgences alone are insufficient, divine intervention is required.

Apostolic Penitentiary –– for Opus Dai

existential analgesic

Martin is credited with having brought the “death tax” coin back into wider circulation in 1993.  He gained an ally in political mastermind Frank Luntz.  Luntz, who conducted focus groups for conservative caucuses and politicians, understood the importance of language.  He even wrote a rhetoric primer for conservative politicians with the Orwellian name “Language for the Twenty-first Century.”
Luntz’s message research found that “death tax” kindled voter resentment in a way that “inheritance tax” and “estate tax” didn’t.  Luntz shared his findings with Republican leaders and included the phrase in the GOP’s 1994 “Contract with America.”
                In a strategy memo to GOP lawmakers, the media-savvy Luntz suggested that legislators stage press conferences opposing the estate tax “at your local mortuary” to dramatize the issue.  “I believe this backdrop will clearly resonate with your constituents,” advised Luntz.  “Death is something the American people understand.”10  
According to Lakoff, conservatives have become far shrewder at using language to win converts. When it comes to talking about the environment, conservatives refer to a collection of language guidelines by Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who has long recognized that Republicans have become vulnerable on environmental protection. The book is must reading for conservative political candidates, judges, public speakers and even high school students who want to become conservative leaders.
Luntz urges his readers to use words like "clean," "safe," and "healthy," even when talking about logging forests or polluting the air by burning coal. Luntz's influence can be seen in such Orwellian program names as the administration's "Healthy Forests Initiative" and "Clear Skies Initiative."
A now-infamous Luntz memo obtained by an environmental group serves as a primer for conservatives when talking about the environment. In the memo, Luntz urges conservatives to say "climate change" instead of "global warming," because "while global warming has catastrophic connotations attached to it, climate change suggests a more controllable and less emotional challenge."
The Luntz memo also urges conservatives to call themselves "conservationists" instead of "environmentalists," because "conservationist" conveys a "moderate, reasoned, common sense position between replenishing the earth's natural resources and the human need to make use of those resources." [1]
According to Lakoff, conservatives have invested billions over the past 30 years in think tanks, book publishing, magazines, and media consultants. This has given them a huge head start over environmentalists in using the most persuasive language for political change. Says Lakoff, "Playing catch-up won't be easy, but it is necessary."


The abortion dilemma
George W. Bush has reinvented himself as a true conservative. But will pandering to the right on abortion make him unelectable in November?
- - - - - - - - - - - -
By Bruce Shapiro
Feb. 8, 2000 | A specter is haunting the presidential race: the return of abortion to the center of the political stage. In the courts, abortion is a settled issue. The constitutionality of Roe vs. Wade was reaffirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court eight years ago. But in the political realm, the issue of reproductive rights is still a divisive force. While Al Gore and Bill Bradley wrangle over who is the real pro-choice candidate, the days before the New Hampshire primary found the supposed compassionate conservative George W. Bush running as fast and far to the pro-life right as he could; while John McCain, with a thunderously right-to-life voting record, declared a hypothetical abortion by his own daughter to be "a family decision" -- in other words, a matter of choice and privacy.
Now, heading into South Carolina and then Super Tuesday, Bush and McCain find themselves facing an unattractive choice between the highly organized right-to-life voters who can swing Republican primaries and the pro-choice majority needed to win a general election.
For Republican strategists, no issue rouses more anxiety. "This is obviously a divisive issue much more for Republicans than Democrats," GOP pollster Frank Luntz said on CNBC recently. "Republicans would rather be discussing economic issues."------------------------------------------------------------------------
More news on Gun Control
That is putting it mildly. Democratic pollster Celinda Lake says her latest data shows abortion "even more of a wedge issue than in the past." Traditionally, she says, the most committed right-to-life voters have outnumbered single-issue pro-choicers two-to-one. But this year, says Lake, "we have seen an increase in the number of single-issue pro-choice voters" to a level equalling the right-to-life faction.
What alarms Republicans like Luntz -- and has sent Bush and McCain into such political contortions -- is the memory of 1992. Just weeks before the GOP convention in San Diego nominated President Bush for a second term, the Supreme Court, dominated by Reagan-Bush nominees, stunned the nation by reaffirming "the central holding" of Roe vs. Wade, even while allowing states to pass some new restrictions like parental notification before a minor receives an abortion.
The Supreme Court's decision in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey ran like an electric charge through the presidential campaign that year. "The constitutional right to choose is hanging by a thread," declared candidate Bill Clinton. "We are only one justice away from an outright reversal of Roe." "WHAT THE PLANETARY VILLAGES like Findhorn and Auroville really are is a kind of planetary deme. This is the word geneticists use to describe small isolated subpopulations that have a mutation in them. The species will always send out little tendrils from the major adaptation of where it is now, and these tendrils will explore new ecological niches and in these niches a mutation will occur. And as long as the mutation is in communication with the rest of the species then there's a feedback into the species as a whole and it will flow into the ecological breakthrough and will create the major adaptation for the future and then once again will fan out. All these planetary villages are evolutionary demes, little subpopulations where cultural evolution and physical evolution are becoming conscious."

BYU: Mormon technicians contribute advances in human rights –– Gone Wrong

Miramar aka Burma:
the sorry tale of John Yettaw, Mormon Activist.
Aung San Suu Kyi Human Rights Activist sentenced

John Yettaw Messianic Mormon scuttles freedoms for the Mormon Cause.
Yet another Mormon skuttles freedom for others. Aung San Suu Ky gets another sentence thanks to Mormon Messiah, John Yettaw.
When interviewed, John Yettaw said, "I was visited by Joseph Smith who revealed to me a plan to get more recognition for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." He said, "The voice was clearly that of my servant Joseph Smith. On the second visitation he whispered that Mormons need more credit for more miracles. Joseph told me that if I went to BYU, the faculty will provide, technical expertise on how to fashion special equipment. With my flippers I could liberate Aung San Suu Kyi from confinement using prayer management techniques taught me by Joseph himself." He went on to elaborate,
"If I could get Aung San Suu Kyi to pray with me to Joseph Smith, we would be levitated up and away from her captors."
Some claim that Mormon Elders put Yettaw up to the job so as to divert attention from the domestic Post-Mormon agitators; a counter-apologetic movement to liberate Mormons from the shackles of Mormonism –– "The Mormon Organ."

There is some question:
why an old Mormon Duffer would screw-up a human rights activist with more confinement?
Counter-apologetics Ex-Mormons claim it's a stunt to deny freedoms for everyone but Mormons. Rumors Abound: BYU, Mormon technicians contribute to advances in human rights with yet more inventions.

It was disclosed that John Yettaw visited the BYU campus and was shown how to fabricate swimming flippers from simple easily acquired articles to complete his mission for the liberation of Aung San Suu Kyi. He was given diagrams for the covert swim-gear to use in the, on site, fabrication.
His mission for Joseph failed but his efforts will be remerbered, rewarded with seven years at hard labor for his prophet. There are many ways to get to Mormon Heaven. . .

"Plaut's Complaint."
End the Illegal Occupations!
So let us see if we have this straight. The anti-Zionists claim that the Jews have no right to the land of Israel because before Israel was re-created in 1948, it had been almost 1900 years since the last time that the Jews exercised sovereignty over the Land of Israel (though actually Jews held sovereignty there briefly in later periods). And the anti-Zionists claim that it is absurd to argue that anyone still has rights to land that was last under their sovereignty 1900 years ago.
And on what basis do they argue that the Arabs have some legitimate claim to these same lands? On the basis of the claim that the Arabs last exercised sovereignty over that land 1000 years ago. Yes, that was the last time "Palestine" was under Arab sovereignty, and even then there was no Palestinian state (just a province of Syria). So 1900-year-old-claims are inadmissible. Thousand-year-old claims trump them and are indisputable.
The anti-Zionists say the thousand-year-old Arab claim is legitimate because it is more recent than the Jewish claim. But if national claims to lands become more legitimate when they are more recent, then surely the most legitimate of all is that of the Jews of Israel to the lands of Israel, because it is the most recent!
The other claim by the anti-Zionists is that Jews have no rights to the lands of Israel (historic Palestine) because they moved there from some other places. The claim would be absurd enough even if we were to ignore that fact that most "Palestinian Arabs" also moved to Palestine from neighboring countries, starting in the late nineteenth century. But more generally, does the fact that a people moves from one locality to another deprive it of its claims to legitimate sovereignty in its new abode?
If it does, then it goes without saying that the Americans and Canadians must lead the way and show the Israelis the light, by returning all lands that they seized from the Indians and the Mexicans to their original owners and going back to whence they came. For that matter, the Mexicans of Spanish ancestry also need to leave. The Anglo-Saxons, meaning the English, will be invited to turn the British Isles over to their original Celtic owners, while they return to their own ancestral Saxon homeland in northern Germany and Denmark.
But that is just a beginning. The Spanish will be called upon to leave the Iberian peninsula that they wrongfully occupy, and return it to the Celtiberians. Similarly the Magyars will go back whence they came and leave Hungary to its true owners. The Australians and New Zealanders obviously will have to end their occupations of lands that do not belong to them. The Thais will leave Thailand. The Bulgarians will return to their Volga homeland and abandon occupied Bulgaria. Anyone speaking Spanish will be expected to end his or her illicit occupation of Latin America. It goes without saying that the French will lose almost all their lands to their rightful owners. The Turks will go back to Mongolia and leave Anatolia altogether, returning it to the Greeks. The Germans will go back to Gotland.
Ah, but that leaves the Arabs. First, all of northern Africa, from Mauritania to Egypt and Sudan, will have to be immediately abandoned by the illegal Arab occupiers and squatters, and returned to their lawful original Berber, Punic, Greek and Vandal owners. Occupied Syria must be released at once from the cruel occupation of the Arab imperialist aggressors. Iraq must be returned to the Assyrians and Chaldeans. Southern Arabia must be returned to the Abyssinians. The Arabs may return control of the central portion of the Arabian peninsula as their homeland. But not the oil fields.
Oh, and the Palestinian infiltrators, usurpers and squatters will of course have to return the lands they are illegally and wrongfully occupying, turning them over to their legal and rightful owners, which would of course be the Jews!

comment on "Plaut's Complaint."
Plaut's Complaint desires not to make history rhyme but repeat itself. I thought the world had had this discussion after The Great War that created World War II was executed. There are other methods for dispute resolution beside the Zero Sum Game. The world can't afford yet more unfettered imperialism.

Intelligent design is supported by the collective subjective for reasons that are easy to understand, however, this planet can't afford any more unproven divine interventions.

Amy McPherson: Leaving Los Angeles for New York, and the boat, upon which we sail immediately, I was met en route by multitudes of our friends. Among them ever was a liberal sprinkling of newspaper men. And in each city, they asked the same question: “Sister McPherson, what do you think of Prohibition?” It was rather difficult to answer the question in such a few words as one must use then, but I told them, that the case about Prohibition here in the United States, reminds me of the story of the lecturer who gave a marvelous address on prohibition. And he wound up in a blaze of glory that brought everyone to their feet enthusiastically. “Why is it my friends, if I had my way, do you know what I’d do? I’d take every barrel of liquor, every bottle of booze, every crate, and I’d empty it in the river. Yes sir.” Then he said, “Shall we now close our meeting by rising and singing, ‘Shall We Gather at The River?’” He’d spoiled it all. And that’s the way perhaps with us over her in America: we teach it, but so often those who profess to make the laws do not quite live up to them, and back them themselves. I wish that you could all have the joy of going with us this Easter tide to the Holy Land, where we shall visit on Easter Day, the tomb of our risen Lord.

Biology in the news

Stem cells and cloning posted 05/30/2005 08:12 pm by Jim Hu

[Biology in the news]I was struck by this statement in the CNN article describing Dr. Hwang's criticism of the Bush stem cell policy:Some bioethics specialists said that Hwang's lab is not creating humans. "There is no reason to believe one of those things could ever become a human being," wrote David Magnus and Mildred Cho in a commentary for the Stanford University Center for Biomedical Ethics in California.
Upon reflection, I realized that this is is true - but that the reason may not be well understood by the general public.
You don't make a new embryo just by growing up ES cells - at least not with current technology - but the standard way to make transgenic mice is to inject the genetically engineered ES cells into the inner cell mass of a blastula. The stem cells don't become a mouse, but they become part of a mouse. The animal is a chimera or mosaic - different cells have different genotypes. These animals can be bred to other animals, and if the gametes of the chimeric animal came from the ES cells, then half of the genetic material from the ES cells ends up in the next generation, which are therefore not genetic clones of the ES cells. By similar arguments, new ES lines from frozen embryos would not lead to clones.
By contrast, cloned animals don't require going through ES cells. Somatic cells are injected into an enucleated egg, which then develops using the implanted nucleus as a source of embryonic genetic information.
But it's not that simple. Hwang used cloning by somatic cell nuclear transplantation to create the blastulas that were the sources of his new ES lines. The distinction between "therapeutic" and "reproductive" cloning, as far as I can tell is only in what happens to the blastula next. In reproductive cloning the blastula would be implanted for development in utero, while Dr. Hwang put the blastulas on a feeder layer of human cells and derived ES lines. If you believe that a blastula is sufficiently human to have a right to life, then therapeutic cloning is much worse than reproductive cloning. The blastula loses the capacity to form an adult - it's an ex utero very early abortion (if you accept that RU-486 is an abortifacient - there is some controversy about this). But for reasons I've never understood, most people seem to be more opposed to reproductive cloning.
Of course, the ES cells themselves could be used as sources of nuclei for another round of nuclear transplants. The resultant embryos would be genetically clonal to the original donors - but would allow the ES cells to become human beings? Not if only their nuclei are used, I guess. Using ES cells instead of somatic tissue might be useful if passage through ES cells turns out to increase the lengths of the telomeres by reactivating telomerase. I haven't seen whether this was evaluated for the human ES lines made by Hwang.
