China’s space program is quickly becoming formidable… and potentially dangerous

Published

on

The world economy has been shifting in China’s favor for some time. Their military is arguably the most powerful overall in the world. Once considered a true third-world country, they’ve been able to mix elements of both worlds with intense poverty and lack of technology through much of the country while also having cutting edge tech and a booming economy in other areas.

What’s not often considered is their space program. We shouldn’t ignore it. Not only are they progressing faster than the United States or Russia, they’re also rumored to be working on space weapons. This video by Curious Droid barely scratches the surface; we’ll follow up with more on China’s space program in the near future. For now, just know it’s worth keeping our eyes on, as I’m sure the U.S government has been doing. At least I hope they have.

Jonah Goldberg throws water on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal

In a thought-provoking piece on National Review, senior editor Jonah Goldberg took a sober look at the ever-growing fire that drives the climate change debate. In the process, he threw water on their fire, particular the one being fanned right now but incoming-Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal.

While acknowledging the science seems to support substance to the climate change debate, Goldberg points out the overstated ways in which the debate is being framed. People like Ocasio-Cortez tend to blow the alarms harder and louder than necessary and the policies that arise from their klaxon calls are usually overkill.

Climate Change Frenzy Clouds Our Judgment

https://www.nationalreview.com/g-file/climate-change-frenzy-clouds-our-judgment/Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a “Green New Deal.” As I’ve written 7 trillion times (give or take), progressives have wanted a “new New Deal” even before the first New Deal was over. Painting an age-old progressive idol green has nothing to do with science and everything to do with marketing.

As I suggested in the bit about the science-fiction story, I don’t think there is very much to do right now. Oh, I am very much in favor of R&D for all sorts of things. Cold fusion would be the equivalent of discovering faster-than-light travel. Personally, I am very interested in geoengineering — the science of actually fixing the problem. I am convinced the world has a low-grade fever that could get dangerously high in the future. That fever isn’t all bad by the way: E.g., it extends growing seasons and accelerates tree growth.

Whether climate change skeptics are right or not, there’s definitely reason to question the ways in which environmentalists are pushing their agenda. There’s a difference between having the debate and trying to quash it before it starts.

9 discoveries that confirm the Bible

9 discoveries that confirm the Bible

In this extremely interesting short video detailing archaeological discoveries that confirm the historical accuracy of the Bible, the folks at World Video Bible School highlight some amazing evidence. I don’t know much about WVBS, but I can endorse this video itself.

Here’s the first of the 9 discoveries:

The Pilate Inscriptions

In 1961 in an Italian sponsored dig in Caesarea, archaeologists uncovered a stone that had a Latin inscription on it that said “Pontius Pilatus… prefect of Judea.” That Pilate is mentioned in the Gospel accounts on several occasions. You read in John 18:29:

Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?

The find verifying the New Testament statement that Pilate was the prefect of Judea.

8 more

All of these discoveries are proper, indisputable archaeological finds. It’s one thing to contest the Bible’s authenticity as the Word of God, though its very presence and the takeaways we can draw from it point the faithful to the truth. However, claiming it as being historically wrong is being debunked regularly.

The authenticity of the Bible as a historical document is no longer a valid argument against it. As more archaeological evidence points to its physical truths, so too should its words and lessons be completely trustworthy to those seeking the truth.

Conspiracy Theory

Cybersecurity adviser Rudy Giuliani doesn’t understand the internet

Cybersecurity adviser Rudy Giuliani doesnt understand the internet

The person President Trump picked as his cybersecurity adviser is making claims of a conspiracy against him and the President perpetrated by Twitter. While Rudy Giuliani correct in assuming anti-Trump bias at Twitter, he’s wrong in believing that bias was turned against him. In fact, he’s the one who made the mistake, but his understanding of how the internet works is shockingly lacking.

On Sunday, Giuliani Tweeted this:

You’ll notice a link to G-20.in that was automatically turned into a hyperlink because Giuliani forgot to put a space at the end of the sentence. This is done whenever any letters or numbers precede a period immediately followed by a top level domain (TLD), such as [dot]com or [dot]net. In this case, it was [dot]in, the code for Indian websites.

An industrious leftist noticed it, bought the domain, and put up an anti-Trump message.

Fearing he was targeted by Twitter or someone who was given access to edit his post, Giuliani Tweeted this yesterday:

His argument that the “same thing-period no space-occurred later” references the part where he excluded the space in “Helsinki.Either” in the original Tweet. Unfortunately for Giuliani’s conspiracy theory, [dot]Either isn’t a TLD.

It’s probably best for someone a little more tech-savvy to handle Giuliani’s Twitter account for him. It may also behoove the nation if someone a lot more tech savvy could replace him as President Trump’s cybersecurity adviser.
