Where is the Science?

A He is now a She – or on a more personal level, Bruce is now a Caitlyn. Everyone in the media is telling me this great news that she is a ‘transitioned’ person and that this is important to all of us.  I find it interesting that there seems to be no science in the ‘transition’.  Is He really a She now?   Or is He just look like a She?  Are these the same ones that remind me that there is no science behind my belief in a creator that is implied in the intelligent design of humans, space and animals?  So belief is accepted in the people who now claim to have changed genders but not in spiritual matters?  I think I understand……

I listened to the NPR interview on the creating of the Vogue article that most of the media is using as a lead in to this story –  was especially telling when the Editor explained why they chose the writer they did:

“Buzz has a fascination with clothing — I didn’t realize, actually, that Buzz has had experiences with cross-dressing himself. That came as news to me and I only read it when I read the manuscript he turned in. But Buzz is very much an old-school type of journalist, and I wanted somebody who would be willing to spend a lot of time, and who would understand this. And he’s a wonderful writer on top of that — and a very empathetic writer.”

So a writer was chosen who is a supporter of transgenderism and who can be completely objective…..yes.

My question will be when He or She checks into a hospital with a health issue, what will the science-based Doctors consider Her to be? This is what She really is, no matter how beautiful the clothes and photo-shopped pictures.  But we are not talking about science here, are we?

History of the World before Man, Six Pages of Riviting Reading

Steven Hawking has co-wrote another book repeating his tired dogma that there is/was no God.  WSJ has a quick article on it  – written by Hawking.  Not sure who he is still trying to convince since we all know the science is irrefutable?  His great contribution is the following, “the laws of gravity and quantum theory allow universes to appear spontaneously from nothing.”  I have often observed that for all of the science’ we have been given on the evolution of Man, the History of the World before Man is extremely lacking.  Give me a tome that spends chapters discussing the Big Bang, the primordial soup, the DNA and where it came from and who programmed it and include numerous pictures of all of the fossils of the evolutionary rejects.  Belloc’s review of Wells’ epic ‘Outline of History’ noted that it was a powerful and well-written volume, “up until the appearance of Man, that is, somewhere around page seven.”
A universe appeared from nothing and we have six pages?

It is Settled Science but I still need to convince you

Visited airport bookstore and thought I would look in the Science/evolution area to see if anything new was available.  I counted 9 books (in a small bookstore), all of which supported the view of evolution/non-creationism.  Why, if evolution is a fact that ALL scientists believe in, are they still churning out books supporting it?  Do you still see books supporting a round earth theory?
Because it is a religion……. and they must convert the few of us that just don’t know better.  An earth that has purpose and design behind it is a world that many do not want to believe in – it upsets their worldview dramatically.   Actually, it reminds me of religious writers writing to the believers – too much of it in my opinion.
