Dr. Bob is on a roll again. I love it when he really gets rockin’. I’m predjudiced about the “Coonster,” however, as he is smart and has a way with words I can only dream about.

For instance, in the quote below he says, “motivated stupidity.”I wish I had thought of that when I was ranting yesterday over the “stupidity,” at M.I.T. (post below this one).  What troubles the most, I guess, is that when a school admired for science, as is M.I.T., it becomes obvious that it is only a matter of time until the science professors begin to believe what the philosophy professors spout, because that is the way that it is in reality. (Some things do “inevitably proceed.)”

We can argue forever about this, but it is the ones who teach the young how to think who control what the next generation will think. That is why there are so many morons calling themselves scientists. They are the ones who believe the earth cannot survive the humans she supposedly spawned. If these dunces were able to follow the logic of their brain droppings they would arrive at the only conclusion possible in the “global-warming, we are evolved from nothing,” garbage-scenario they teach: Nature must eliminate what it cannot sustain.That is evolution, isn’t it? If the species human is a problem, evolution will correct itself. What’s the big deal? After all something evolved from nothing certainly can’t be concerned about a future which may be intent on evolving it out of existance, can it?

Anyway Dr. Bob said:

if you can first establish the Big Lie that absolute truth does not exist (or that humans cannot know it), then you have paved the way for people to legitimately believe all kinds of nonsense that results from the “motivated stupidity” of the unconscious. You have, in effect, sanctioned mental illness. Not just sanctioned, but elevated it to the ultimate value. For make no mistake: if you understand what I am saying, then you will understand that multiculturalism, moral relativism, diversity, “tolerance,” and all the other ruling ideas of leftism are not just wrong, but sick. And not just sick, but terminal. They are sickness unto death, in that, once embraced, the mind is strangled by them from the inside out, and cannot grow toward Truth. Rather, the mind can only grow if the person liberates himself from the leftist strait-jacket altogether.

So the sickness, that is leftist thought, produces a Cho, a Columbine, a Ms. Jones at M.I.T., as it slithers along the horizontal plane. (read Dr. Bob for definition) Evolution is only doing what evolution must do. Somehow the left has missed the connection that evolved, relativized thinking must produce and culminate in a Cho, a Columbine, a Ms. Jones, for example. All of these entitys and events were only proceeding on the evolutionary/relative truth path. If truth is relative, as Dr. Bloom pointed out most young people believe, what can possibly be the problem with these recent events? Dr. Bob answers:

… Truth is a living thing, a Being that cannot be reduced to the idolatrous systems of men, especially corrupted men who do not honor Truth to begin with. Most modern and postmodern ideologies and philosophies are opiates for elites too sophisticated for such nonsense as Truth. But like all misused drugs, “Lies gravely affect our mind; they distort the undeveloped organs of the Personality, upon which depends the effort that must lead us to the second Birth…. Even more, lying makes the man who aspires to evolution go backwards” (Mouravieff).

Wouldn’t life be great if everyone admitted “Truth is a living thing, a Being that cannot be reduced to the idolatrous systems of men…?”

That won’t happen anytime soon. Al Gore, Nancy, Harry, Teddy, and Hillary can’t be gods if that is so.  They wouldn’t be able to shape the masses and the President into the image of  the left they have now consecrated as the only true image.

So, I guess I better get used to living in Alice’s Wonderland where the “lie is truth.”  

I knew it. This guy Bush, if I am to believe the media, is really pushing the limits of Presiden-

tial authority.

[…]Questions of nation-building, of regime change, of “mission creep,” of congressional versus presidential authority to make war, of negotiation versus confrontation, of “entangling alliances,” and of the “clash of civilizations”—all arose in the first overseas war that the United States ever fought. The “nation-building” that occurred, however, took place not overseas but in the 13 colonies, welded by warfare into something more like a republic[…]

Oh wait! This isn’t about Bush; it is about a guy named Thomas Jefferson and some kind of run in he had with Muslims! Can this be true?

[…]“it (is) written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”[…]

Dr. Sanity has more. I stole the quoted parts from her. (I should set an appointment to deal with my kleptomaniaquotia).
