Related to the massive migration of Middle Eastern men into Europe is the value system with which they arrive. What is a value system? It’s the set of principles with which individuals live and with which they make their decisions. How does a human being discover the concept of “value”? By what means does he first become aware of the issue of “good or evil” in its simplest form? By means of the physical sensations of pleasure or pain. Just as sensations are the first step of the development of a human consciousness in the realm of cognition, so they are its first step in the realm of evaluation.

The capacity to experience pleasure or pain is innate in a man’s body; it is part of his nature, part of the kind of entity he is. He has no choice about it, and he has no choice about the standard that determines what will make him experience the physical sensation of pleasure or of pain. What is that standard? His life. Ayn Rand…
What about individuals who never ever introspect to the extent that they understand their value system? First the number is very small and second it’s a rare person who can escape the culture pressures and barriers and figure out that it’s their individual life that’s at stake when they accept a value system. Most people simply accept what they’ve been told by people they trust and admire. Most of those people are wrong.
How many people would say their value system comes from their religion? Most people accept that as an axiom. But no religion preaches the individual is more important than the religion. It’s to the eternal credit of America that the nation was set up on the basis of the protection of the individual. That caused and continues to cause many problems as most preachings are not about making the life of the individual the best it can be. Instead of explaining the rules of life, religions issue commands that offer no choice except a penalty if the commands aren’t followed. Suppose the commands are wrong, which they often are? less than ideal life results.

Jemele “The Hater” Hill is a 41 year old black woman who is on her “Hate-Path” again. She completely ignored the fact that President Trump went far out of his way to get three black UCLA players released from the Chinese. HERE.

Hill was suspended for referencing Adolf Hitler in an article about the then–NBA champion Boston Celtics and the Detroit Pistons. In an editorial describing why she could not support the Celtics, Hill wrote: “Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan. Deserving or not, I still hate the Celtics.” The comments generated a negative response and that portion of the editorial was taken out shortly after the column was published. Hill was subsequently suspended for one week and she issued an apology through ESPN.
On September 11, 2017 Hill made a series of tweets critical of President Donald Trump, including describing him as a “white supremacist.” ESPN issued a statement saying Hill’s comments “do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.” Hill later clarified that she stood by her comments as representative of her personal beliefs; “My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light.” Some criticized Hill’s comments, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who called them “a fireable offense by ESPN”;[21] Trump criticized the network and demanded an apology.
On October 9, 2017, ESPN suspended Hill for two weeks for a “second violation of our social media guidelines”
Hill is an example of a world class ignorant hater. Can she reform and join the objective human world? No, at least most probably not. That’s the nature of hate and haters.

The FBI released the 2016 Hate Crime Statistics that show that white people commit more hate crimes than black people. So?

There are far more white people than black people so it makes perfect sense that more white people commit hate crimes as well as all other crimes but what about percentages? The percentages of hate crimes by black people and white people don’t line up like they should. When the FBI Hate Crime statistics are adjusted for the percent of black and white people we find African Americans are about 3.2 times more likely to commit a hate crime than a White. HERE.

The Eagles were hot before their week off. The Cowboys have a great quarterback but they’ve been losing. Will it stop in Dallas Sunday night?
No.
Wentz is too strong. Dakota “Dak” Prescott won’t have near enough receivers. Dallas is a formidable force in the NFL but it’s an upside down world this year with the surprisingly mighty Eagles dominating.
Maybe the Eagles and the Patriots in the Superbowl? Far too soon to make that prediction but then again the Eagles seem to be already there.

Religion is based on primitive myth.  People became aware of their ability to think which introduced them to “wonder” at their very existence. Instead of developing into science and the study of the natural world they went off into the “supernatural” and haven’t recovered. Mikie Savage seeks to take advantage of that wonder by selling a book about God which has no other answers than the ones the mystics provided him.
His book contains a massive contradiction in the title. Reason is incompatible with faith. Martin Luther said it: “reason is the deadly enemy of faith.” He was 100% correct.

Luther was misguided as he sought to grasp the differences between the mind and the spiritual which is simply the ability to think, to separate the mind from the body and assign the idea of the spiritual to the supernatural. That’s the lair and the err of all religions, the assignment of the inexplicable to another non-human dimension.


Savages mistake is to misuse “and” in the title. It should be “or”.


With such a huge mistake should you read his book? You have to figure that out on your own. I’m neither buying his book nor recommending you do the same.
Savage is eminently readable. Being human he’s not infallible and neither is his book beginning with the third word of the title.
Enjoy the NFL boycott. Maybe read the book instead. Maybe not.
