The Story of Shelley Lubben, Former Porn Star

by Judith Reisman

. . . As a veteran student of pornography and prostitution, I did not expect to learn anything new from watching Shelley Lubben's public testimony. I was wrong. Shelley's description of the sexual violence and degradation of modern pornography was a shock, even to me. It made me think that it made perfect sense to hear that she had left her economically rewarding "star" roles to return to a safer life doing "straight" prostitution. ►►►

Baby Freeze

Is Population Control the New Solution to Global Warming?

by Robin Phillips

. . . Following the huge birth explosion that occurred in the decades after World War II, the issue of population control gradually returned to the national limelight. But this time, instead of being explicitly linked to theories like eugenics and social Darwinism, it was propelled by the emerging ideology of environmentalism. ►►►

Daycare Denial

Inconvenient Truths About Childcare Subvert the Very Best Intentions

by Marcia Segelstein

. . . When I was a producer for CBS This Morning, covering family issues, we sometimes partnered with Parents magazine. So one day I had lunch with the then-editor to talk about possible future projects. I suggested working together on a series about daycare. Before the word was barely out of my mouth, she stopped me by saying that Parents magazine chose not to cover daycare "because parents suffer enough guilt already." It took a while for the full implications of that statement to sink in. Parents magazine put parents' potential guilt above children's potential welfare. . . . ►►►

Truth vs. State

It Takes Courage to Confront False Ideologies

by H. Lynn Gardner

Among the false ideologies of the West are secularism, feminism, and sexual libertinism. Speaking against them will not advance your career in government or education. But the witness of two men who lived under the lies of communism should inspire us to speak out. They had the courage and integrity to live and speak the truth about their societies despite the risk of prison, torture, and even death.

Neither God nor Darwin?

Atheists & Agnostics Who Dare to Doubt

by Denyse O'Leary

To hear it from the New Atheists, Darwinism is the atheist's creation story, the Genesis from which no Exodus follows. As Richard Dawkins is often quoted as saying, Darwinism enables an atheist to be intellectually fulfilled. If so, there are a number of atheist and agnostic thinkers out there who are intellectually deprived. Or are they? Consider, for example, the Humean philosopher Antony Flew. . . . ►►►

Just Brilliant!

Three Things Only a PhD Can Believe

by Louis Markos

. . . At times, this academic groupthink leads PhDs to defend issues that are indefensible and to give their allegiance to causes that are immoral or unethical. At other times, it leads them to believe things that are simply and demonstrably false—things that violate objective observation, common sense, and the collective experience of mankind. Indeed, colleges and universities across Europe and America brazenly teach their students three things that are so patently absurd that only a PhD could believe them. . . . ►►►

Immaterial Evidence

The Law of Conservation of Information

by Denyse O'Leary

. . . the informational realist perspective, espoused by information theorist William Dembski in his new book Being as Communion (Ashgate, 2014), unpacks another, bolder idea, the Law of Conservation of Information (CoI). This law states that natural causes can transmit complex specified information, but they can never originate it. If the idea is correct, it means that the current purely natural (material) theory of evolution is not even possible. . . . ►►►

School Deform

How Common Core Promotes Cultural Engineering by Killing the Imagination

by Robin Phillips

. . . America's founders understood that a healthy democracy requires that citizens learn to think critically, to ask questions, and to develop well-ordered faculties of reason and imagination. Citizens who were inculcated in the ways of sound thinking would be able to preserve the riches of our cultural heritage. This was the same vision articulated by Plato, who argued in The Republic that the highest goal of all education is knowledge of the Good. By contrast, when the architects of Common Core tried to describe the goal of education, they were unable to articulate anything higher than "college and career readiness" and "21st century literacy" for a "global economy." . . . ►►►

Fleeing Thoughts

Americans Are Amusing Themselves Right Out of Their Minds

by Herb London

. . . If I told my friend that contemplation was good for the soul, he would assure me in unmistakable terms that I was insane. America is on the run, both literally and figuratively. There isn't time to reflect. Those who worship the great god Aerobic spend hours each week running for health and figure. Others move from one activity to another with scarcely the deep breath needed to make sense of all their movement. I sometimes get the impression that such activity is a device to avoid serious consideration of issues one cannot influence. With radical ideas metastasizing across the globe, it may be a safety valve to avert your gaze, to pretend that the horror that could afflict you can be wished away through the preoccupation with recreation. . . . ►►►

Mind Control

Safeguarding Yours from the Modern Cult of Experts

by Terrell Clemmons

. . . Experts, for Fitch's treatment, are primarily defined by their transgression of the boundaries inherent to their fields of expertise. For example, a cell biologist may have a perfectly good, morally sound opinion on the social advisability of religion-based models of childrearing. Or he may be a cold-blooded moral monster. The point is, knowledge in the realm of science does not make him a credible authority in the realm of values. This should not need pointing out, but apparently it does. Whenever anyone makes statements about non-material realms of thought, or pushes a moral argument, under the banner of science, then the science is not being used in its proper context. It is being coopted to advance an agenda. . . . ►►►
