O'Leary writes to a politician

Apparently, there is actually a member of the Ontario Provincial Parliament (Queen's Park), Lisa MacLeod (Nepean-Carleton), who thinks that the "human face" of fascism is ugly - or so Ezra Levant implies:

I wrote her to say,
I am a Canadian citizen and Toronto-based Ontario resident who provides an unpaid and unthanked news desk on controversial issues in science (NOT global warming, usually*).

And will continue to provide it, come what may. That is because I am a good citizen and a traditional Christian.

Many of my friends have been charged or sued, under the governance of the "hrc"'s [= human rights commissions].

Sorry, I cannot help making it sound like a disease, but it IS a disease.

I too will suffer what I must. But my duty is to continue to report what I know as long as possible - to help those who come after us.

I gather from Ezra Levant's information that you want to restrain the people who have far more answers than I have ever had questions. And [they] have never hesitated to squish the ideas of others.

I wish you well. I wish you were running my riding so I could vote for you.

Cheers, Denyse

*The fact that this summer has been cool and rainy might give a person in your position something to think about. How severe should the persecution be against anyone who doubts the global warming religion or any of the other questions over which I have been threatened? Is that really a good use of the government's time? - d.
Well, maybe I will get a tree-killing letter in the mail on fancy government paper.

In any event, as soon as I am done my promised report on the risks of publishing a book or writng an article in Canada, I will be back to my regular reporting on issues of specific interest to readers of this blog.

Darwinian fairy tales again: Just keep those shards and fetters coming ...

I don't have time to blog much today, as I am writing a report on an unrelated matter, but apparently, Rob Breakenridge has replied here to my comments here on his abuse of all Albertans who do not worship Darwin.

I noted in reply to a commenter at Uncommon Descent:
... , Breakenridge's research assistant probably did not read the material I was referencing - and linked here (as well as at the Post-D): Experiments showed that birds did not care whether the spots, however created, looked like eyes or not.

Thus there is not likely any "evolution" of the spots toward looking like eyes.

The whole Darwinian construct in this area, in my view, springs from the notion that birds are feathered people. Therefore, what we think is an evolutionary selection advantage must be one.

Fast forward to the deluxe leatherbound edition Darwinian Fairy Tales, of which Breakenridge appears to have collected the entire gold-bricked set.

As I said in the first of my dialogues with [sociologist] Steve Fuller, an ID-friendly science course would take pains to make clear that birds are NOT feathered people. They do not have brains organized like people's brains. We cannot begin any study of bird adaptations by assuming that we understand how birds think - let alone by offering to do their avian thinking for them.

That is precisely what the Darwinians have so disastrously done with the peacock tale, the peppered moth tale, the Monarch-Viceroy tale, the eye spots tale, and so forth.
For info on all these tales and why they belong on the fantasy shelf, go here. Meanwhile, I will try to find Steve Fuller again and continue the discussion on intelligent design-friendly science courses.
