CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

Kinds of Christian

  1. Con men

    They don’t believe the Christian horseshit. However, they use it to con gullible Christians. Pope Leo X (1475-12-11 1521-12-01 age:45) was typical of this kind as are all televangelists. He said How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us and our predecessors.
  2. Cowards

    These people typically started out indoctrinated as Christian in childhood. They came to see it was nonsense, but they were to afraid to let their peers and families know.
  3. Sheep

    There are people who were naturally not too bright. All their lives, they did what their Christian community told them to do. They avoided learning anything about science. They only repeat the thoughts of other Christians. They do not even decide whom to believe or who makes sense for themselves. They have to ask someone else. They believe it wicked to put forward an idea of their own.
  4. Losers

    These people have almost no education and no money. They gain social status by affecting Christianity. They have never read the bible. They have bizarre theology pieced together from assorted people. They assure you the creator drops by for a chat with them every day.

Even when I know what is motivating them, it is very hard not to think Christians simply like wallowing in silliness and spreading it around, like golden retrievers with an attraction to feces.

What Economists Do Not Know

Economists miss some very basic facts in their training. They need to take a few courses in mathematics and ecology to round out their education. Here is what they need to know:

  • Economic growth is not sustainable. On a finite planet, it is mathematically impossible to keep growing the economy indefinitely. If your economic system depends on growth, it is doomed to fail. You have to learn to live with zero growth.
  • You cannot have any economy at all without an ecology to support it. It is suicidal to destroy the planet in pursuit of prosperity. In particular, you have no option but to stop emitting CO₂ from burning fossil fuels.
  • Indefinite growth in population is mathematically impossible. Resources are finite. There are only a limited number of atoms composing the planet. If your economic system depends on population growth, it is doomed to fail.

Climate Change vs ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)

The novel George Orwell’s 1984 describes an authoritarian society run by Big Brother. Like all autocratic leaders, Big Brother convinces the population to fanatically hate/fear some group, in his case Emmanuel Goldstein, to create compliance and unity.

Donald Trump uses ISIS for this same purpose. ISIS is not nearly as big or dangerous as he portrays. Consider that cars, airplanes, street drugs, bathtubs, swimming pools, house fires, hunting rifles, donuts, handguns… all kill far more Americans than ISIS does.

If you listen to Trump, you would think ISIS is about to bring America to its knees any day now, even though they don’t even own a single row boat or plane.

However, climate change is a monstrous threat, far greater than everything I have mentioned so far combined. Even if the USA put up the fight of its life, it will still likely be crushed. People find this so frightening, that the only way they have of dealing with it is to ignore the threat and wishfully imagine, without evidence, it were just a hoax. That erases any chance of survival.
