This post is does not seek to belittle, or blame Christine and Karl Laulu, but to take their tragic experiences and use them for education… hopefully to help people grasp the issues at stake… not only the very real risks involved in vaccination of babies, but also of what happens when we put too much faith in ‘Authorities’ whether they be Official… or seemingly unbiased academics.
These Samoan Parents Lost a child to vaccination… had another child… and lost that one too… to vaccination!
Now without stretching this post out into a full assault on the assumptions and prejudices involved in ‘Orthodox medicine’ I will only lightly touch upon how we are subject to heavy indoctrination and pressure to trust the establishment, to the degree that Parents who choose not to vaccinate are accused of being ‘antiscience’ … Schools raving on that abstainers are dangerously incompetent as parents etc… and that Socialists are trying to pass legislation to make vaccinations compulsory resulting in the removal of parental rights and ownership of our children by the state…or how vaccination has become an industry about profit more than medicine… All important aspects of this debate, I will highlight two facts in particular with respect to this case.
1. Here we see the folly of the ‘one size fits all’ approach to health and medicine.
From these tragic cases we see that *There can be individual factors* that make something that is safe and effective for most… ineffective and even Fatal for others… and we could spend all day enunciating examples of this fact… and that small minds operate on a single cognitive level.
2. To follow on from this and record the fact that the Anti-Vaxx crowd *are not without plenty of evidence* that Vaccines can and do destroy lives! and that this is a very real risk factor Parents must consider when deciding whether or not to vaccinate their Kids.
The Truth is *Even the vested interests in the establishment knows this risk is real*, and that there are thousands of cases of adverse reactions and deaths from their Quackery… yet they are hell bent on downplaying this reality and deceiving people like the Laulu’s into subjecting their children to the System.
After their first child Jamie ray died after his vaccination , No Doubt these poor parents had second thoughts about subjecting their next child yet we can be sure they were ‘Persuaded’ by the establishment that their second child would be fine…. Their trust would again blow up in their face when their Daughter Alana-Rae died two years later!
Their mistake was to trust the sloped opinions of Orthodoxy and suffer the cost *twice*!
And this stuff is going on every day around the globe with ‘Health experts’ simply writing off these Deaths, and severe side effects as ‘Collateral damage in the ‘war against disease’.
That there is any need to vaccinate against Measels and mumps is extremely questionable given that historically parents would deliberately expose their children to these diseases… to get them over and done with… building up immunity *naturally* without any need for Pharmaceutical company merchandise.
We can easily see that our population… via subversion of the education system has been indoctrinated into believing Vaccination for Measles and mumps is a Must… and that this is propaganda motivated by profit cloaked as ‘Contentious parenting’… and that Socialists take this subject as an opportunity to accrue more power to the state… using the state education system to indoctrinate the masses.
As an informed Libertarian parent over the past 8 years my wife and I have had to make a decision about vaccinating my son… and though my wife’s had a female cousin that suffered a catastrophic reaction to the Rubella vaccination some 3 decades ago… leaving her mentally handicapped, wheelchair bound, and dead before 30… we still went ahead with his courses, so any accusation that I am a staunch ‘Anti-vaxx’ nutbar is proven false… yet I do not blame any parents who decide they dont want to subject their beloved young children to the quacks.
Like any ‘industry’… Orthodox medicine is a vested interest that seeks to skew the public dialogue in its favour.
It has a vested interest to try and crush any competition which takes the form of ‘alternative treatments’, etc… and belittle any criticism against itself.
When the government acts in favour of large pharmaceutical companies against alternative private health practitioners This is fascism.
We should be ‘free to choose’… yet always taking care to make informed decisions…. There is no escaping this personal responsibility… to simply trust the ‘experts’ without investigation is extremely risky… yet Governments want you to abdicate your rights and responsibility for your own health.
Politicians are constantly campaigning on the idea that its the governments Job to Nanny us all like children when it comes to our health, and that is their excuse for heavy taxes on Smokes, booze, and why they want to add taxes to sugar and fats.
I hope all my readers are today well aware about how wrong Orthodoxy has been about animal Fats!
The Socialists attempting to make immunisation compulsory is a Global problem… an agenda that takes away parental rights and gives ownership of your children to the state
“It takes a Village” say Hillary Clinton!
She says raising Children is primarily the States Job and that Parents are merely ‘second tier’ caregivers….
This is about absolute power and control over future generations!
I have many friends and family who work within the medical establishment and I do not seek to belittle the great work that they do… yet still in private conversations they will admit to me how much guesswork and shoddy practices go on… how State Budgets put pressure on staff and that mistakes can happen.
Few people understand that Deaths from medical misadventure in New Zealand are more prolific that deaths from Car accidents… even though most of us will know people who have suffered and died because of poor care within the system.
As a Libertarian I believe the state should not be involved in the health industry and that this in itself is the greatest single cause of out ‘suffer and die while you wait’ status quo and that full privatization of health (with the requisite reduction in taxes) would be a gigantic step forward… not only in efficiency… but also in putting the power and responsibility for our own health back into our own hands… breaking our dependency on Nanny State.
So while smokers would get huge Tax reductions… they would have to do the math on their health insurance… same with the Obese… etc etc… ie there would be natural intensives to abandon vise and live healthier lives.
There is a great delusion about the benefits of state health.
Doctors and hospitals were not invented by governments but were ‘appropriated’ by them.
And the level of care in the public health system is extremely low compared to Private hospitals,etc.
Walking the Grey halls of your average State hospital feels like you are transported to Soviet Russia!
Staff complain about wages.
The whole idea of being involved in health or education as being a vocation rather than a money making career has absolutely evaporated under socialism.
To many doctors and Nurses we patients are just like broken down cars to mechanics… how they make Bank… the humanity is slipping away.
I have my own facebook page Self Help. Alternative Treatments and Health the idea being to put people back in control of their own health issues.
Please like… and contribute.
I am very liberal with what I post there… my job is not so much to endorse suggested alternative veiws and treatments as it is to provide a forum where people can find things to make up their own minds and discuss.
The above pic is part of a Full Front Page Propaganda Piece by the New Zealand Herald , that not only captures Jacinda Ardern’s Outrageous claims that it is not the governments Rapacious taxes that are responsible for New Zealanders being ‘Fleeced’ at the gas pumps… as she jumps on that Tired old, yet faithful Hobby horse … blaming Greedy Fuel companies… and then following up with threats of new legislation.
All this dishonesty is Evil enough, yet if that is where it stopped the only thing that could be said about the article was that the Herald was simply reporting on Arderns lame denials, and subversion … yet that is far from what happened on October 8 2018… see the pic below.
The Herald engaged in outright Propaganda of its own… of the very worst sort… showing that it is far from impartial and that it may as well be written from an office in Arderns spin doctor department!
This absolutely shocking Pie Graph (above) appeared in the same *Front page* expose… which is so distorted that even a mediocre mathematician like myself cant help but spot glaring falcehoods!
The most Obvious one being that it pretends that 94.3 cents is well over 50% of $2.45.9 !!!!
The 94 cents is the actual cost of the one liter of petrol, leaving a remainder of just over $1.51 of Taxes and Fuel company overheads and profits.
By grossly misrepresenting this component (in white)… for political ends, they could then visually minimise the truth about how much of the price of fuel is taken in Taxes (Levies are just taxes too!)
Thus the Herald pie graph grossly under proportions the real amount the Government gets… esp noticeable with the segment that is supposed to show the 15% GST component (in Green)
I have worked out that the segment the herald attributes to ‘GST’ fits into the pie graph almost 23 times! when if this segment was honest it would be a portion that ought to only fit in 7.667 times!
This is a distortion of the truth in favour of the lies of Jacinda Ardern of a magnitude of nearly 300% !!!!
This is Barefaced dishonesty by New Zealand’s Largest Newspaper!
Then just step one day ahead… to today… October 10, 2018… page 3 and we read an article baced upon the Opposition party Leader Simon Bridges who is trying to make as much political capital from the public outcry against Arderns new fuel Taxes by calling for them to be scrapped… and this article has another graph… yet conveniently for the Herald… its not a Pie graph but a bar graph (see below)
Now this one at a glance is far more honest than the one they ran only the day before on the front page…. firstly we can see that the 94.3 cent component is rightly proportioned at well less than 50% of the total cost… and ‘Hello’… the real component being fleeced from us by the government is nearly 50% of the total price!
leaving a mere 33.9 cents for Feul companies overheads and profit … a proportion of the total cost being a mere 1/7th of the whole!
Now The Bullshit we are being fed by Jacinda Ardern and her sycophants at the herald is a mountain high and is despicable!
what bothers me the most is that this blatant dishonesty at the Herald may not be picked up by uncritical readers… thus perpetuating the lie that The Government is not to blame for the suffering and growing poverty in New Zealanders… and that its all because of greedy corporations that need more legislation!
Patent falsehoods for despicable political ends!
Remember Ardern’s Election promise “no new taxes”… Yeah Right!
This is outrageous!
She is unfit to govern… National is no better.
New Zealand desperately needs a New Libertarian Party… and New/ better Newspapers…|
The New Zealand Herald is corrupt and has failed in its duty… the roll of ‘the Free press’ is supposed fulfill as a vanguard of freedom in an enlightened society.
Heads should Roll!
And to think the world swoons at Arderns feet!
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
And you wonder why poverty is growing in this country!
Had enough yet?
Update: 10-12-18… I should have mentioned the fact that Ardern has an even more nefarious ends in mind she is not talking about… she… and her Green Party coalition partners are part of the Global Cabal who want to Ban Motorcars and force people into State transportation systems under their Machiavellian ‘Climate change’ Agenda.
So secretly she *wants* the people to hurt… she *wants* people to not to be able afford to run private motor vehicles…
This is a hot topic at the UN… where she loves to grandstand… with her Baby!
She is a Fraud and a tyrant.
Poverty is growing in New Zealand.
Suicide is too.
Financial stress is destroying families.
With the heavy oppression I face from the Tax department, only two things prevent me from becoming a dangerous enemy of the state… rather than a passive victim.
1. My responsibility as a husband and Father to put their immediate well-being ahead of my need for vengeance.
2. My Christian faith that abhors violence… even against those who deserve it… yet the restraints of these two factors have limits… I ask myself at what point does it become the Christian and Fatherly Duty to take up arms and wage war against a tyrannical State?
Anyone here remember the words of the American Declaration of Independence and why America was born?
How many struggling families receive Threatening letters about arbitrary ‘Debts’ from The New Zealand tax department each week?
How many self employed people are bankrupted by the IRD… or loose everything they have worked years to gain?
There is a crisis going on!
What will it take to stop the Legalised Robbery?
The Government makes Organised crime look like amateurs!
So far my Activism has been Peaceful and reason based… like the Gospel… an appeal to the hearts and minds of my fellow citizens… Yet the Jackboots of the state are kicking at my door…. like Extortionate Gangsters.
They are destroying the lives of the virtuous and hard working.
Yet the *real sad truth is* it is *you*…. my fellow countrymen who continue to vote for the Rapacious Extortioners… and their ever growing addiction to expropriation.
You vote for the Theft… You support the Media personalities who encourage the IRD to take more… and more…
How many more homeless people will have to die in gutters? how many suicides and broken families will loose everything before you realise that it is the Jack booted Government *itself* that is by far the greatest threat to your lives and family?
Every Tax hike pushes more Families towards crisis.
Nonetheless like a runaway juggernaut the Government and Councils are having meetings about the country scheeming more ‘innovative’ ways to take our money for their whack schemes!
Tax is Crack Cocaine to Socialist addicts like Ardern.
The pic above is the sort of ‘editorial’ that passes for wisdom in New Zealand when it is nothing short of absolute falcehoods and propaganda designed to ‘soften up’ the masses into accepting new and higher Taxes!
They peddle the lie that higher taxes will bring greater prosperity!
They peddle that great Lefty lie that those with property have not contributed ‘their share’ to society!
Tolerance towards this sort of sycophancy in the media in New Zealand is outrageous!
How Journos and editors can get away with such one eyed lies is a testament to how lobotomized our population is(thanks state education).
The so called ‘Free Press’ have failed in their Duty as the vanguard against tyranny.
Read : Lost Plot. World Press Freedom Day.
We are expected to maintain composure while being fleeced… to suffer in silence… to maintain the Delusions that higher Taxes are Good, Justified, enlightened, when in reality by far greatest cause of Poverty in this country is Socialist over-government and heavy taxation.
No matter how hard I work… or how many thousands of dollars I withhold from my family and give to the beast… no matter how many Holidays I forego… They still send me threatening letters telling them I owe them tens of thousands more….
How many of you are working yourselves to death… forego Medical attention for yourself… yet suffer sleepless nights, and whose only Forlorn hope is to win lotto?
They take the Joy out of life and keep families on the edge of poverty at all times. (A Habitat of Envy and want under which white horse riding socialist Scammers flourish… )
For the Grace of God People…. Wake up!!!!
Stop worshiping evil Idiots like Jacinda Ardern!
The Labour Party is not the friend of the worker!
She is *not* a heroic leader… she is a Thief and a bully.
She’s a sexist, Racist hypocrite…
Why she (and her ilk) are in power is because *her* sexism… *her* Racism… *her* hypocrisy… and *Her Economic delusions* all are of the popular variety.
She’s a Retard…. Captaining a ship of Fools.
Of course the problem is bigger than Jacinda’s Regime… Its Ideological and systemic… she’s just the latest Demagogue to wield the flail.
The real problem for Modern civilization is in the unfathomable void… the monumental sheepish ignorance of our systemically lobotomised voting populations.
You Useful Idiots still believe socialists care?
What sort of Slavery are we bequeathing to our children?
Speak now or forever hold your piece… pun intended.
Politically Homeless Libertarian Slave of the State.
One of the greatest dangers to the conservation of Western culture that Southern and Molyneux want to come to New Zealand to warn us about are those that stem from allowing a large influx of migrants and Refugees…from a starkly different culture.
Migrants who have no intention of assimilating their host nations culture or values and fervently harbour anti-Western ideas… such as outlawing critics of their religion … and that accommodating these alien ideas will spell the end of the Religious liberty we have enjoyed …founded upon tolerance and equality.
This should not be a surprise to anyone… and obviously measures need to be in place to protect the degrading of our rights and Liberties.
The price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance… Our Heritage of Liberty and tolerance needs to be rigorously defended!
Well… Sadly… We see that the Islamic community in New Zealand already has leadership that thinks nothing of lobbying government to prevent speakers coming here they perceive as being critics of Islam!
And we already have Liberal Politicians who have zero respect for conserving Western culture more than willing to accommodate them!
*And that* is the *Real problem*… because in any society there will always be Petty Groups… and even malevolent groups who desire Laws that circumvent the rights and liberties of others… the problem happens when they are able to move Legal/Political powers to enact their anti-liberty desires.
Does anyone appreciate the Irony of this situation?
The arguments of Southern and Molyneux are being validated before our very eyes!
Is it already too late?
Has the sun already begun to set on Freedom and religious toleration in New Zealand?
I think so!
It is proven that even ‘Moderate’… Cosmopolitan forms of Islam (if that is what the ‘New Zealand Federation of Islam’ claims to be) are organisations dedicated to destroying Western ideals about personal Freedom… and enjoying life in a free and open society… Co-existing in peace based upon Ironclad Rights and liberties.
They want their religion (Islam) to be shielded from critique.
“She’s just going to insult all of us”
The Islamic community voiced their opposition to the visit last month.
New Zealand Federation of Islam Associations president Hazim Arafeh said it had written letters to the Immigration Minister, Minister for Ethnic Communities and the Human Rights Commission asking for Lauren Southern to be denied entry.
“[She] abuses her right of freedom of speech. She’s just going to give a talk in which she’s just going to insult all of us,” Mr Arafeh said.
“I don’t think insulting Muslims comes under free speech, that’s an abuse of freedom of speech.
“I’m talking on behalf of 50,000 to 60,000 Muslims in New Zealand who are going to face a very hard time by all the comments she is going to make.”
And the Anti-Western Commy Mayor of Auckland Phil Goff tweeted….
We see Goff quick to capitalize on this opportunity for extreme left ‘Virtue signalling’ that was not to be missed… under the pretense that the planned Speaking tour was ‘Divisive’.
Notice how on one hand we get Western Liberals applauding when their politically appointed partisan Judges insist Christian Bakers must accommodate Customers who want ‘Gay Wedding Cakes’… yet also these same hypocritical Ideologues then suggest it is a Right to exercise conscience *not to allow Southern and Molyneux use of Public facilities paid for by all Ratepayers… irrespective of Race, religion, or cultural heritage!
We can be certain that the council has in the past happily allowed its Publicly owed venues for such Radical Racists as
This is clear discrimination by the state in both counts… and on both counts it displays an agenda to suppresses the Religious liberty of the Cultural conservatives for the sake of pandering to the Anti-religious liberty sentiments of various sectors of our society.
Stephan Molyneux is also everything the Lefty Liberal SJW Retards love to hate.
Hes a Man… (Patriarchal Privilege)
He’s White… (White privilege)
He’s a defender of Western Values.
He’s unapologetic for any of that!
Banned from Entering New Zealand!
For The record let it be known that I have been very outspoken about what I didn’t like about Trumps Anti-refugee Electioneering… and I have defended the humanitarian urgency with regard to the plight of the Syrian refugees… and so I am not a person who endorses all the sentiments of Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux… yet it has been waay too easy for a biased press to wheel out Prejudiced academics like the so-called ” Massey University far-right expert and vice chancellor Paul Spoonley …. saying some of what the pair say was considered hate speech and labeling them as ‘Far Right extremists’… when in reality Southern and Molyneux are very mainstream Western Conservatives… not Rightist radicals at all.
The last time I remember anything like this was when New Zealanders were denied opportunity to listen to the arguments of Holocaust denier and Historian David Irving… a Man who was later jailed for the crime of having an opinion contrary to The Politicians and academics of Europe.
Now This is no joke!
Not a triffilng matter… not a victory for Social progress… but a plunge into the abyss!
In England, an act of unworthy of any Civilized Free society an associate of Lauren Southern … Journalist Tommy Robinson… was marched straight to jail… without normal due process… because he desired to expose the legal Travesties going on in British courts by which Muslim rapists escape justice that would be meted out to any other demographic!
So on one hand people who balk against the Liberal’s PC agenda are criminalised and thrown in jail pronto while the system panders to *Real Criminals* in the misguided idea that Britain ought to accommodate the anti-western cultures of Non-citizens!
The Ultra Right parties are definitely on the rise in Europe… taking advantage of the chaos and disorder that has ensued because of Weak governments management of the Refugee Crisis, yet it is not *Ultra right* to protest against this Politically Correct travesty *but Conservatism*… yet because the principles and arguments that oppose all this Lefty Garbage may be broadly understood as ‘Libertarian’… this makes it easy for Lefty academics and politicians to label these ideas as ‘Far Right’… which is where these charlatans have always lumped Libertarians… as if they are Nazis!
And the Dopey shepple believe these lies.
Libertarians are as opposed to Rightist Fascism as they are opposed to Lefty Communism … and for the very same reasons… both forms of socialism… on the left and right … are all about totalitarianism… and both trample underfoot the rights and liberties of Individuals… Destroying lives… filling Prisons… and pounding anyone who will not comply into the ground.
And we have Bold speakers here in New Zealand … ‘Holocaust deniers’ like Bruce Moon and John Ansell who dare to contradict the ‘Official History’ of the British colonization of New Zealand as being systematic oppression of The Maori people.
Unlike David Irving… Moon and Ansell have history on their side!
The revisionism is the 100% propaganda of the Lefty academics and radicals, yet tt is not a very long march from Banning Foreign speakers… to jailing our citizens who critisise our own governments views.
This is where all this is heading.
Had David Irving been allowed to come here and talk it is highly unlikely he would have persuaded anyone that the German Holocaust against the Jews did not happen!
And at the risk of a few nutballs swallowing a few delusions… the principle of free speech is far to precious to be surrendered!
Lefty Politicians Like Phil Goff’s Labour Party… and the Greens that are infested with Purple haired ‘Social Justice Warrior’ Lunatics… most of whom are confused about their own sexuality…harbor a deep repugnance for New Zealand’s Western Christian Heritage, and this being so we see a stark prejudice against Christian values, to the degree that we can be sure that They would not pander to any ‘Christian Lobby’ that would be silly enough to Demand people like Richard Dawkins or Neil deGrasse Tyson be denied visas ‘Because they insult Christianity’… etc.
The Hypocrisy of the left stinks to high heaven!
I believe that if there is any organised protest against this travesty preventing Southern and Molyneux for coming here and talking that all liberty loving Kiwi should endevour to be there… even if you do not endorse what they represent as this not simply about supporting what these individual want to say… Its a much BIGGER and FAR MORE IMPORTANT MATTER!
Its about telling our Government they have no right to shut down Dissenters who peacefully expound Ideas that are contrary to the governments Agenda!
We Kiwi have the right to invite such people… and to listen to what they have to say… and to make up our own minds about such things!
It is Dangerous to allow the government to control what we hear, Read, watch, etc!
This is Fundamental to living in a free society!
Any society that looses this is in grave peril… and will have jails filled with political prisoners… and I am not just talking about Hell holes like North Korea!
The Lefty Liberals about the Globe are fast eroding our rights and Freedom… fast pandering to intolerance… in the name of tolerance!
The Great Evil Anti-free speech Liberal doctrine is of course the the Deception of ‘Hate Speech’ by which any critisism of anything… any group… any idea… may be construed as being ‘Hate speech’… esp if such criticism goes against the Agenda of the ruling party.
And of course The Right to Free speech especially matters when people what to say *unpopular things*… because that when intolerant people and vested interests… who have no recourse to reasoned arguments… seek to shut them down by Legalised force.
If This travesty is allowed to pass without protest you can count New Zealand as being one of the most petty Nations on Earth!
A Lefty Liberal S#!t hole!
And next They will Ban Christian speakers who are opposed to Abortion… Or Whom have opposed Gay Marriage…. or Hippies who advocate the end of the war on Drugs!
Now though I am a Christian Libertarian, I have no problems with Peaceful Muslims immigrating here… and I have advocated we accept far more Muslim refugees from such Humanitarian Crisis as the Syrian war… yet these people can only come here under the strict condition that they will obey our Laws and respect our Rights and Liberties!
They have no legitimate right to start lobbying the government to pass Laws that infringe upon our legitimate freedoms… or to expect special treatment.
As long as they peacefully go about their own business their is no reason why they cannot carry on enjoying their own culture and beliefs, yet if there is an in-congruence between their culture and that of their hosts… if anyone must culturally change and assimilate… it is the Immigrant… and refuge… not the Citizens of the host country.
If this condition is unacceptable to them… they should leave.
Like Citizens… They may voice their disagreements… yet they certainly dont have the legitimate right to lobby Government to Ban speakers whom are critics of Islam… any more that I have the right to lobby Government to ban critics of Christianity!
If I dont like what some speakers are saying I can ignore them… or take the opportunity to present a rational argument as to why they are in error… or challenge them to Public debate… or if I feel the need I may organise *A Peaceful* and civilized demonstration rally… Yet The Idea that certain speakers may be prevented from holding their meetings because of threats of violence from intolerant groups is absolutely unforgivable!
It is the Governments Job to see to it that Law and order prevails against such thuggery… and that the right to free speech be upheld… against the barbarians who think violence is the way to suppress their critics… rather than civilised debate…
Failure of Government to see to it that Controversial speakers are well guarded… and that the events take place is to let the Mob Rule!
And again we see that it is *The Wacko* Lefties with their ‘Social Justice Warriors’… ‘Antifa’, etc who have no qualms about resorting to Violent protest… rioting… and vandalism.
These things are crimes… not protests… and the Criminals should be thrown in Jails… and be made to pay for any property damage they cause.
They are the most likely to send Death threats, etc
In no way are they like the principled protests of Martin Luther King and his civil Rights movement, and ought to placed in stark contrast to them.
Even when engaged in ‘civil disobedience’… They were Never violent… never destructive of property… never angry… but full of Love and high ideals… and they won!
In those days it was the Separatist Status Quo who wanted to shut them down and prevent King and co from speaking… and whom resorted to violence!
Never should the Dialogue on sensitive issues be allowed to be hijacked by Political vested interests or the Mob.
Now I am not suggesting that the Islamic Federation of New Zealand is ‘a hotbed of radical Islam’ hell bent on turning New Zealand into an Islamic Caliphate’!
I have seen some good things that have come from this organisation in the past… yet I absolutely condemn their demands to ban Critics of Islam from being allowed to come here and talk.
They have overstepped the mark…
Idiot hippies are calling this “Environmental art…
You superstitious fools!
Atheist *Scientists* argue… and they would know… because they are so much smarter than idiots who believe in ‘Intelligent design’… and…. you are not *qualified enough* to have any contrary opinion of weight…. they say this is ‘simply’ a natural occurrence… no design… fully explicable via the laws of gravity, mass, motion, etc.
Pay Homage to Multiverse theory!
We just so happen to live in a universe where this happened…. randomly… without a creator…
Dont argue… you are ‘Anti-science’… (and probably a terrorist)
The world has been taken over by Sub-humans. ( proof of De-evolution/ Entropy… the world is getting more ridiculous not less)
Seriously… the main reason why there are so few new Blog posts here @ Eternal vigilance… is because of the absolute chaos that is afoot… yet… is numbingly accepted as ‘Business as usual’ by our left/ right/ center socialist Democratic lunatic asylum Masses of dumbfounded dipshits.
Its literally Driving Eternal vigilance bloggers to Clinical depression!
By Gods Grace I try to practice the dictim…
I could Blog on the latest news of arsewipe NZ Bankers and ‘Tax working group’ who think that a 10% capital gains tax would be wonderful because it could be expected to deliver a 10.8% reduction on house prices…. forget the vested interest bankers have in pouring poop on any investment decisions you may dare to make that they dont get the biggest cut…. and of course *the government* is just itching… like a meth addict… to get that 10 %.
I could blog about the latest conundrum in archaeology in the holy land… with respect to a Clay figurine’s decapitated head and the arguements as to which *biblical figure* the head depicts… all options being recorded in the Bible (yes… the bible is history folks… not fairy tales).
But lets ignore the facts… too inconvenient for the many.
I could blog about The most vile politician in New Zealand today…. the guy who is such a snake that he suckered me to voting for him…. Winston Peters… now acting Prime minister… and the dirty coalition deals he did with the super dishonest Jarcinda Ardern… and how ridiculous it is that the NZ Herald thinks that Peters… the Political Dinosaur… will struggle to wear Jacaranda’s Pull up nappies and trendy little disco PM boots!
and lets ignore the ‘Gay abandon’ Shane Jones and Whinnie have flamboyantly Twerked in farmers faces with respect to their choreographed condemnation of ‘Fonterra executives’ for their massive losses in China!
You simply cant get greater shyster political Posturing for the sake of ones own ends… by duping a powerful demographic than that!
I could talk about the absolute pathetic wallowing of National party Leader Simon Bridges pandering to the Greens … ‘Global warming agenda’… in the face of propaganda that Antarctica is melting… despite the fact that NASA says it is growing… a pathetic…. act of desperation on his part!
And on and on it goes…. as we sail towards the abyss of stupidity!
I would quit completely and pray for comets to fall from the sky if it were not for my Children… and their children… and your children… who must inherit this Catastrophe from us… A Generation of abject failures.
The Brain sapping suckiness of it all has reached levels of lobotomy that should not be possible!
Hence I can barely write any blogs as the impetus gets immediately sucked into the void!
Anthony McClean, Portia McPhail, Anthony Mulder, Tara Gregory, Huan (Tom) Hsu, Natasha Bray, and Floyd Fernandes drowned in the Mangatepopo Gorge. (Stuff)
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the river tragedy that took the lives of 6 Elim Christian School students and their teacher Anthony McClean.
Such a terrible event, Yet from the first time I herd the story of Anthony’s heroic exploit I have been overwhelmed and affected by a sense of awe at his humanity and sense of Christian duty that he demonstrated on this fateful day, and though 6 others lost their lives this blogpost is my personal tribute to him in particular… as an exemplar of character and the sort of loving soul that every parent desires in a tutor of their children.
When the River surged trapping the group in a dire situation, Anthony was faced with a Great moral Dilemma… abandon his pupils and Save himself… or… strive to save a physically disabled student cerebral palsy sufferer Tom Hsu, 16, by tying him to his own back and to risk his own life for their sake.
Visualizing this in my mind, I am transported in time and space to witnessing this act of heroism first hand…and I am overcome.
His heroism cost him his life… they died together… yet ten years later the example he set still moves and inspires me and thousands of other New Zealanders.
It ranks in the highest order of Noble deeds… Christ-like… who said “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends…” John15vs13.
His action is the equal of any Teacher who has in such moments of fate… given their lives for their students, and I am reminded of such stories we often read about when there is a US school massacre… the teachers who put themselves between the killers and their Pupils… May God Bless and Keep them all.
This is the spirit of Altruism… the voluntary self sacrifice of personal benefits… out of love…for the sake of others.
True Heroism is not about personal glory, and is impossible for the person who puts their own life as the highest value.
This is taking the Vocation of teaching to its Highest end… placing the life of your students ahead of your own.
Teachers like Anthony McClean demonstrate the *Real virtue* of the vocation… Teaching was never about High wages and Fame… and all about being able to fulfill your personal desire to serve others… The opportunity and privilege to instill wisdom and values in the youth under your care… to empower them to take care of themselves, raise happy and healthy families, and to live great and fulfilling lives.
And the best teachers teach the most important lessons of character… by example… living (and dying) by the values they expound.
Teachers who dont have this quality may be technically smart… yet can never be *Great*… and when any troubles arise… even minor troubles… they will put their own interests ahead of your children.
What parent can have confidence in a Selfish teacher to look after their child, and instill values?
Anthony Mulder was one of the Students who lost his life that day… yet not before performing selfless deeds of heroism!
He positioned himself in the torrent and helped his fellow students to get across.
” Kish Proctor and Sarah Brooks, two of the survivors from the canyoning group, said Ant was an inspiration for his selfless, loving nature and steadfast belief in God.
Fellow Elim youth leader and Pakuranga College student Jessica Hancock described him as a “humble, patient, peaceful, generous and loving guy who has changed so many lives”.
Speaking after the memorial service, Ant’s friends said healing moments had been time spent in his bedroom and talking about the good times they shared with him.
Kish said Ant was voted group leader while at the Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoors Pursuits Centre because he was a seasoned tramper and led by example.
“He stood in the middle of the current and helped all of us across it,” he said.”
Let us Remember this Tragic Day… esp the Deeds of these Two Heroes.
Lets us take inspiration from their selfless actions in the Darkest of hours and endeavour to emulate them in our own lives.
And as Christians… we live in the hope of the Gospel.
While pondering and contemplating and meditating today, it occurred to me that one of the greatest ‘stumbling blocks’ to confessing faith in the Christian Gospel is the absolutely erroneous assumption by the average bible rejecting lost soul that is the idea that the God of the Bible hates them…because they are sinners… and wants to send them to damnation.
This is a very powerful misrepresentation of the truth!
The Truth is the exact opposite… God Loves them *despite the fact* that they are sinners…and *does not want* them to be Damned!
That is why He sent Christ.
To be edited: this piece will substantially improve over the next week… it is an idiosyncratic process of mine.
Criticizing the recently deceased is a Politically incorrect Sacrilege… yet I find it necessary to say a few words about Stephen Hawking, given Social media is flooded with such claims that he ‘Was the greatest mind’ of our times… even though … it is also claimed ‘almost nobody knew what he was talking about’.
His Book ‘A Brief history of Time; is claimed to be ‘the least read best seller of all time’… still virtually Everybody says they knew he was super smart.
I would like to make a few comments about why I disagree.
He may have been able to count better that I yet he was in many ways… very foolish.
Why Tim do you feel the need to write ill of the dead?
Because I see much of his adoration by the masses was not because of His Scientific achievements… but because he was a Champion of the Religion of Materialist Atheism.
His Death is in fact being used as some sort of Hero worship for Atheism and in particular his many Statements that appear to many as an in-assailable Authoritative testimony that Materialism is supported by the Facts of science.
This is an Old claim… which is patently false… yet I will have to justify my rejection of his assertion about the superiority of Materialist science over the Judaeo-Christian Theistic interpretation of science.
Why do you dare to question the so-called ‘Greatest scientific mind’ of our era?
I will delve into this shortly.
Tim… who the hell do you think you are to question such an intellectual Giant?
What… if anything at all… could a nobody like you have to say that anyone should consider of value or weight?
To this I would like to demonstrate how the thinking Ordinary man may contend with the claims of experts and authorities of highly obscure and specialized fields such as Theoretical Physics.
To bring the stratospheric claims and Ideas down to an altitude that we can make rational and informed decisions.
Many of Hawking’s adoring atheist fans will be operating on the worst kind of *Blind faith*… that *He said* science does away with God is good enough for them… so Ultimately the vast percentage of these Atheists are guilty of precisely what they say is wrong with Religion!
These Atheists are accepting pontifications from their ‘High Priest’ that they make no attempt to understand or to independently investigate if in fact they are justified in accepting Hawking’s assertions as gospel… its just that their ‘High Priest’ wore a Lab coat rather than a Cassock.
The morons even make a big deal that he died on Einsteins birthday!
On Obscure technical Theories and subjects, quite often there are available to Lay-thinkers Expositional simplifications that can greatly help form some rudimentary understanding upon which Judgments can be made… avoiding blind faith in the otherwise unsubstantiatible claims of Theorists, yet to alleviate some of the incredulity about my competence to critisise Hawking what I have to say does not need to go into particular details about his *scientific theories*, but rather I am interested in *His *Extra scientific* conclusions and conjecture* that he made public with regards to the ultimate nature of reality.
In the end I will present *Reasons* for my claims… and if these reasons are well founded, then they will stand on their own merit against the claims of Hawking.
Materialism is an absolutely Godless, Spirit-less, Miracle-less faith, and Its chief appeal to the Godless masses is that they think it does away with any notions of Moral duty, and Divine judgement, and that *all thing* must be understood, and explained, in purely Physical terms of matter and motion.
This means the Godless masses can turn their backs completely upon Religion… and morality that sets rules that they dislike.
If such a Cosmology is true, then the whole universe and everything… including Human beings are merely Matter… and the only laws we are subject to are the laws of Nature… physics, and chemistry.
As evidence of this I need go no further than point to the Rabidly anti-Christian Lefty Liberal psychosis that is gripping western civilization.
This movement is Hell bent on making Christian values and ethics *illegal*.
On a psychological basis it is relatively easy to infer Stephen Hawking’s degenerative condition of Motor Neuron Disease and subsequent life lived in a Robotic chair, will have had a large, yet non-scientific impact upon what he believed about the Ultimate nature of Reality.
He may have harbored quite contemptuous feelings towards any Idea that there could possibly be a God in the light of his affliction… and I would not pretend to write off such feelings as if they were petty, and in Fact it is very amazing testimony of faith when we see people afflicted with severely debilitating conditions *Still believing* in a Loving God!
One of the great challenges/ arguments against the existence of a Loving God is the problem of Evil.
That Human beings have a sense of Justice is one of the strange things about being human that defies Materialism (which must say Judgments of right and wrong are Objectively speaking *Meaningless*)… yet on the other-hand when a child is born with severe abnormalities… or in dire poverty… or exposed to Wars… we all question the *Fairness* of life.
It is here that I want to challenge the delusion of Scientists as Higher beings… aloof from the chaos of the human condition… the delusion they are committed to Objectivity and truth… following the evidence where ever it may lead.
I want to point out that they are most often the very opposite personality types… committed ideologues… with agendas, and vested interests to substantiating their own theories… and they are affected by the same personal experiences as the rest of us.
Because of his confinement to the chair, Stephen Hawking’s thinking must be understood in light to this to a far higher degree than just the average atheist who questions God’s existence simply because they were born poor.
Stephen Hawking was Human.
On this basis alone it would have been amazing if He had thrown his weight in behind the Idea that God exists… and we should not be at all surprised that he did not.
Nick Vujicic (Above photo)is an inspiration and an absolutely amazing man of Christian faith!
What makes his testimony so powerful is that he loves God *In spite* of his heavy physical afflictions that he was born with… no fault of his own.
Compared to Nick Vujicic faith, Stephen Hawking’s *Unbelief* is not sectacular… We may consider it what many ordinary people might think if they had to contend with the same physical imairments he suffered.
Even if Stephen Hawking did not harbour resentment towards God, still he may have taken his personal condition as evidence no loving God exists, and that feelings of injustice against such things… and the great atrocities and evils of humanity are for sentimental fools.
He may have steeled his soul and said The Universe does not care about us and our problems… it just is.
Stephen was given over to the philosophical trap of *Scientism* (look it up). It is primarily a belief that all *Real questions* ultimately have scientific answers, and that everything else (like justice) is illusory.
This automatically closes the mind to any possibility of Real things that exist *outside the scope of science*.
This is a severe hobbling of the mind.
It causes circular reasoning … ‘Because we assert all realities are Material realities, and there is no God, No Ghosts, no Miracles, any claims of a God, or Ghosts, or Miracles must be false and instead the true explanation for any phenomena must be materialistic’.
It is in light of this that any ‘inconvenient occurrence’ or phenomena must be … pseudo-scientifically rationalised to either be mundanely materialistic or Illusory.
This is not a’scientific’ world view at all… it is in fact a philosophical fallacy… that has been utterly overthrown by science itself.(I will explain this below)
Scientism is a corollary of Atheist materialism and leads to philosophical Nihilism.
It tends to travel accompanied by an absurd notion of scientific infallibility… the idea being that in primitive times Mankind was Brutish and ignorant, and worshipped Gods, and believed in Ghosts, yet with the process of time and the discovery of the scientific method *and rationalism* that the history of science has been an inexorable march of factual /’Secular’/ Materialistic truth overthrowing the miraculous fables and superstitions of the Religious… yet his is delusional… a fairy story invented by atheists!
In Truth while technological advance has been fairly constant.. the theories of ‘Science’ with respect to the nature of Ultimate truth has been a succession of fallacies… each in turn being discredited usually with the aid of better technology.
Thus those that have said they place their faith *in science* rather than religion have been *proven* to have believed in one fallacy after another!
Yet this did not prevent them from claiming they had ‘absolute truth’ at each erroneous step… and claim they stood on more solid ground than the religious.
And this process is playing out as we speak with the Delusions of the theory of Evolution.
The Fool places his faith upon the shifting sands of Human scholarship and rationalism. The wise man stands upon the Rock of Divine revelation… The Bible!
It stands sure.
And a classic example of how *true science* in cosmology and physics has overthrown the Delusions of Atheist materialism has been with the conclusive proofs that the Universe had a beginning… and that one-directional time means it will also end in a type of *Death* within a finite space of time… things that Jueado-Christian Theism claimed to be so via Divine revelation!
By the beginning of the 1800s ‘Science’ was being hijacked by the atheist materialists who boldly proclaimed the Universe was eternal and the laws of physics as being absolute.
This… the materialists of the day claimed was proof that atheist materialism was founded upon ‘science’ and that it proved the Bible’s claim that the universe had a beginning was a religious superstition!
How embarrassing for them when in not too many decades later *Science* proved their most vitally essential tenet of Materialism to be false… and that the Bible was correct all along!
Via several proofs, esp the 2nd law of thermodynamics the Universe is found to have had a beginning!
The Universe is not eternal but temporal.
The Laws of Physics are not absolute… but are contingent… and this ought to have sunken the Materialist superstition like the Titanic!
Yet the fact that the materialists refused to abandon their sinking ship just goes to prove their materialist faith was not based upon science at all… but upon a fanatical prejudice against belief in God… esp a God that lays down moral laws and that Judges humanity.
Thus There are far greater and more fundamental and primary realities *outside* ‘above’and beyond this fianite universe that may be best described and rationally understood as being *Super natural*.
And these lie beyond a wall that renders physical science is impotent .. and strictly relative.
Yet Stephen Hawking was born *after* this period of ‘eternal universe’ materialist superstition in an era in which Materialists were busy trying to re-conceive their beliefs in this new era in which they now had to explain away the fact that the universe was not eternal… and some how was *Created*
Hawking Quote: “Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation”.
He said during an interview with El Mundo in 2014.
Is this *really* what science represents?
Let me explain why this is a frighteningly deceptive and infantile claim!
First of all when you study the history of the philosophy of Science it is not that hard to discover the massive debt Modern science owes to The theistic world view!
At its most fundamental level Modern science was born from the belief in a Rational Divine creator who made the universe in a Rational and ordered way, and that God endowed us humans with the power of Reason so that we may comprehend his wisdom and genius by investigating the wonders he has made.
This is why virtually *all the founding fathers of the branches of *Real science* from Physics (Newton) to Genetics (Mendel) were all *Theists*.
Thus it is a false dichotomy to suggest that religion is at variance with Science!
Stephen Hawking is misleading the gullible masses from the very start.
Religion is only at variance with *wild Atheistic conjecture that is framed in pseudo-scientific terms*.. not with science proper… And Stephen Hawking is being absolutely dishonest when he claims he is speaking scientifically when he says things like ” because of a force like gravity we can explain how the universe can be created out of nothing without God…”
That is pure nonsense, and I challenge *anyone* who disputes me to prove how Gravity can create the universe out of *nothing*.
Its a patent absurdity…. sheer superstition… and those who accept Hawkings assertions on this do so in complete ignorance… solely on Blind faith… out of Cognitive dissonance.
And the Problems go further for Stephen as he needs to explain how the blind material forces… like gravity… can construct and animate Living Beings… a subject that may be out of his field of expertise … yet is in fact *Out of all scientific expertise*… because its Mind-blowing complexity defies Materialist assumptions about ‘Simple cells’ etc.
So from Beginning to end Stepehen’s claims that Materialist science ‘Better explains’ reality is shot through with holes you can drive a bus through!
It is in fact false.
He may have been a great mathematician and made many bold theories… yet he was a poor philosopher, and in Irony I say Friedrich Nietzsche would be forced to declare Hawking’s atheist conclusions “Human… all too human”.
Science has little to do with it.
Hawkings conclusions are found to be as much influenced by his personal feelings as by his terrible philosophy.
He was typically the sort of Materialist (like Dawkins) who argued for Non-design in nature yet was always invoking *Design* in his writings and comments!
Because this is the inescapable perception that confronts the scientist at every level!
From the grandeur of the cosmos to the marvelous nano technology of living cells under the electron microscope!
Hawkings challenged us to wonder about ‘the grand design’, and compared our brains to a computer (which is a typically naive materialist thing to do) … yet the obvious question that needs to be answered is *how the hell can anyone believe our brains could come to be *without a Grand Designer?*???
Even Dawkins admits that “…Biology is the study of complicated things that look like they have been designed for a purpose..”
So by comparing our Brains to computers… it is reasonable to invoke the Intelligent design argument as *that is the only way computers can come into Being* in this universe.
Think about that… The Bible declares “That from the creation of the world god is clearly seen being understood by the things that are made.”
Why would Hawking make such rash un-scientific statements about Materialism overthrowing God ?
I have already given you psychological reasons why he most likely favoured Nihilism, and the view that ultimate reality is uncaring, yet there are also powerful social pressures at stake… Because of the Current climate in academia Stephen had a professional vested interest to champion materialism… to insure his reputation and reverence among his peers whom are as committed ideologically to materialism as he was.
The thing to appreciate is that Science has now brought us to the very boundaries of our physical reality.
Tools like the Hadron Collider are attempting to crack open the very fabric of the universe to get glimpses of layers that are not normally available for us to observe.
*And the conversation* is now fully in *the supernatural domain*… yet the Materialist still chooses to ‘secularise’ this non-physical / spiritual domain that is not beholden to the Laws of physics.
They persist in pseudo-scientific terms and Anti-theistic mythology… postulating such science fictions as ‘Multiverses’, etc…
yet here we are! right where the Theists always said ultimate reality lies… and within a supernatural domain superior to and more primary than our tangible universe.
Again it is the Materialist who has been proven to be in error… and the theistic philosophy that has been vindicated.
The Materialist is *HELL BENT* on their rejection of God… not from science… but from ideological fanaticism.
Now This Blog post is already obscene in length by accepted norms, and so I will close it with two final statements.
1. I respect the guy for his heroic life.
2. Stephen Hawkings was famous for making several ‘Bets’ over the years on the validation of various theories… and it is amusing to note that he *lost* those bets… and had to buy a Penthouse magazine subscription for Kip Thorne … so Hawking’s own history says he is not at a racehorse upon which anyone should place their bets.
The New Zealand Herald ran a story on Friday march 16 titled ‘Hawking showed it’s alright to be wrong’.
The 2nd paragraph says… “Its very difficult to engage him [Hawking] in discussion, and so he has got away with pronouncements in a way that other people would not”
Higgs is quoted as saying “His celebrity status has gives him instant credibility that others do not have”
Higgs has reason to feel aggrieved.
Two years earlier Hawking had placed a very public bet US $100 bet that the Higgs Boson. a sub atomic particle theoriesd in the 1960s, would never be found…”
Hawking even warned that the quest to discover the Higgs Boson might destroy the universe!!!!
Hawking would be proven wrong on all counts.
Anyway my last point is a sad one… and that is to say that we can be certain Hawking has now lost his ultimate bet… against another famous mathematician.. Blaise Pascal… as to the existence of the Almighty.
He will know He’s lost now… and the price he will pay for his error is Terrible indeed.
We Human beings are Free will moral agents… not soul-less Robots… and so a fundamental part of what being a human is that we are responsible for our choices and actions.
We are not like rocks and stones shifting in the floodwaters… not like comets and meteors inexorably fated by the deterministic chains of the material world.
We get to chose our path… and our fate.
Please dont be deceived by the vacuous claims of people like Stephen Hawking.
The Bible says ‘Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools’.
Wrong Bet Stephen.
May God have mercy.
