Greenland Ice Core

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.

Not Just Evolution

Creationists have a much bigger problem than just rejecting evolution. To be consistent, they have to reject most of modern science e.g.

  • DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) contains a clock that tells us that life on earth is billions of years old, not 6017 years old.
  • DNA defines a family tree completely at odds with the bible.
  • Modern science treats mental problems by correcting chemical imbalances and killing pathogens. The bible says they are caused by demons.
  • Radiometric dating tells us the earth is 4.54 years old, not 6017 years old.
  • Geology that examines silt strata laid down each year tell us the earth is billions of years old, not 6017 years old. This same geology is used to find oil.
  • In Greenland we can drill down 680,000 layers of snow, each representing the snow for one year Ice cores tell us the earth is at least 680,000 years old, not 6017 years old. We thus have a record of temperature and atmospheric content going way back.
  • We are seeing light/microwave radiation that originated 13.82 billion years ago from the distant parts of the universe. If the universe were only 6017 years old, we could see objects at most 6017 light-years distant. The sky would be almost black.
  • The bible conflicts with chemistry, computer science, pharmaceutical science, quantum mechanics, astronomy, physics and even mathematics (It claims π is precisely 3).
  • Creationists claim  climate change/global warming must be a hoax because Jehovah is going to destroy the earth any day now and they are sure he would not let us humans jump the gun. There is no evidence for either claim.

What is a creationist to do?

  • Claim all science is a lie, a giant conspiracy, even when the science, e.g. examining strata can be verified by a child, and when it clearly works.
  • Claim that the science works, but that the god Jehovah created earth to simulate being 4.54 billion years old and the universe 13.82 billion, even though they have no evidence of this and even though it takes quite some cheek to claim the god Jehovah cheated and lied like this, going to incredible effort, for no apparent reason to deceive us. If it is a deception, it is so good, clearly that is what Jehovah wants us to believe. How dare we believe otherwise? After all it is more certain that Jehovah created the universe than that humans did not counterfeit or tinker with the bible.
  • Refuse to think about the inconsistency.
  • Consider the possibility, that the bible, written by anonymous people completely ignorant of science, might have got it wrong as did all other primitive peoples speculating at the time. They were a bit fuzzy about the distinction between speculation, myth and absolute truth.

Artificial Meat

A company called Beyond Meat has come up with an artificial chicken that can fool most people. Presumably, it will cost less than real chicken, does not require cruelty to any animals and has a smaller environmental footprint. We might transition gradually into using such products and meat products padded with artificial meats, simply because they are cheaper. I foresee the day when only people like Ted Nugent will eat actual meat at great expense. It will seem gross, like drinking blood.

Lifetime Healthcare Budget

You will spend most of your lifetime budget of health care in your last year of life. The care in that year will be the most expensive and the least effective. As we invent ever more sophisticated and expensive ways to keep a moribund patients alive just a little longer, geriatric care absorbs more and more of the total health budget, depriving younger people of quality care they might otherwise get. Here are some ideas to reduce the costs of geriatric care without harming the elderly:

  • Don’t push (possibly or even suggest) painful/expensive procedures on the elderly unless they will provide significantly improved quality of life or longevity.
  • Allow physician-assisted suicide as a routine option for those in the last year of life, neither pushed nor discouraged.
  • Allow a do-not-resuscitate option on hospital admittal forms so it can be requested without fuss.
  • Provide education to the public to discourage them from demanding treatments (such as continued life support for a brain dead patient) that have no hope.
