Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

Study in Science News

The headline of a new article in Science News about the findings of a new study announced “A key to the mystery of fast-evolving genes was found in ‘junk DNA’”[i] The details show why some genes rapidly “become crucial because they regulate a type of DNA called heterochromatin. Once considered ‘junk DNA,’ heterochromatin actually performs many important jobs, including acting like a tightly guarded prison: It locks up ‘bad actor’ genes, preventing them from turning on and doing damage.” This new study indicates that what had been called “new genes,” supposedly created by random mutations and favored by natural selection evolution (such as the gene in fish that makes a novel antifreeze), were there all the time.[ii]

 

Summary

The genome is not only more complex than we thought a few years ago, it is more complex than we thought it could be. This study has opened the door a little wider to reveal that complexity. More research assuredly will open it even further.

 

Study Results:

Here are some of many examples of now ‘ex-junk’ DNA. Some portions contain docking sites where proteins can be attached to regulate genes. So far, more than 70,000 genes called promoters control nearby genes. More than 400,000 examples were found that function to enhance transcription, often influencing genes great distances away from the controlling element. Some non-coding regions affect how DNA is folded and packaged. Other ‘junk’ DNA is transcribed into RNA. Science writer Ed Yong comments, many evolutionists still “maintained that much of these sequences were, indeed, junk.” That had been true for the eight years prior to his article in 2012 about ENCODE. The deniers today, however, are dwindling in number.

 

This latest study reported on here will push a few more evolutionists to accept the design conclusion. The study supports the picture of a genome that is clearly well-designed, all of it. In 2012, 80 percent of non-coding DNA was found to be transcribed, indicating it has a function. Evolutionists could claim that the remaining 20 percent is junk, allowing them to argue for evolution, however much less confidently. Even in 2012, Ed Yong felt that the remaining 20 percent was probably not junk either. That view is proving correct.[source]

 

The Remaining “junk” DNA Is Full of Information

A review of a study from November 2019 remarks that it “should not surprise us that even in parts of the genome where we don’t obviously see a ‘functional code’” (speaking of the new type of code discovered) there are functions that are “not like anything we’ve previously considered.” They found portions responsible for “gene spaces” and “spatial compartments” such as genome 3-D shape design. Essentially, the non-coding DNA performs the role of punctuation and formatting of the coding DNA. This discovery is helping to resolve the “longstanding problems of “nonā€coding DNA,” “junk DNA,” and “selfish DNA” leading to a new vision of the genome as shaped by DNA sequences.”[source]

 

In other words, “junk” DNA, among other things, helps regulate the arrangement of information in the genome and the “structurally important elements in forming the correct shape and separation of condensed coding sequences in the genome.”[source] Another finding was that non-coding DNA may have a role in “alternative splicing” – i.e., that a single sequence can “encode” more than one piece of information, depending on what is “reading” it and in which direction it reads it. For instance, “viral genomes are classic examples in which genes read in one direction to produce a given protein overlap with one or more genes read in the opposite direction.”[source] Moore’s article relates another example:

 

the amino acid Threonine can be coded in eukaryotic DNA in no fewer than four ways: ACT, ACC, ACA or ACG. The third letter is variable and hence “available” for the coding of extra information. This is exactly what happens to produce the “genomic code”, in this case creating a bias for the ACC and ACG forms in warm-blooded organisms.[source]

 

Moore is speaking of the fact that some amino acids can be coded by multiple codons. In the past, geneticists assumed that it did not matter which one, in this example of four codons for threonine, was used to make protein, but it is now realized that it does matter, and this is one more example of why: the protein gets additional information from the type of codon specified. This is another example why mutations, even if they do not change the amino acid in a protein, are mostly deleterious.

 

Much more could be said about the findings of the study reviewed here, but these few examples will give the reader some insight into the direction research is taking us.

Are the End Times for Western Civilisation close at hand?  Consider:

 

1.     CV-19, lies, exaggerations, and unbridled fascism to combat what can only be described as a bad flu with ‘cures’ which are now worse than the disease

 

2.     Unfettered Muslim and non-White immigration into Western states, accompanied by an endless set of apologia for Muslim rapes, crimes, unemployment, Jihad, public attacks, FGM, child-bride marriages, Christophobia, Church attacks and anti-Semiticism

 

3.     Mainstreaming of pornography, drugs, anti-culture and violence

 

4.     Decimation of ethics, faith, conservative ideals, and the ethos and culture which built civilisation, in all state institutions and processes

 

5.     An obviously stolen US Presidential election with a 30 million vote fraud performed openly with nary a dissent from the elites or media

 

6.     Deep States in every nation controlling political-economies

 

7.     BLM, Anti-fa and other anti-White racist groups portrayed by a Fake Media as peaceful protestors

 

8.     Rewriting of history using the lens of Cultural Marxism in which Whites are now evil, non-Whites angels

 

9.     Financial fraud with negative interest rates, massive cost escalations, stock market manipulation by Central Banks

 

10. A Global Elite intent on One World Governance

Spengler (a must read)

Oswald Spengler’s The Decline of The West, published 1918-1922, laid out the trajectory of the enfeeblement and decay that awaited us, developing a theme that went as far back as the Greek historian Polybius, but that, in the wake of a war that wiped out a generation, seemed less a “theme” than an historically imminent reality.

 

Yeats (a must read)

The greatest poet of the modern age, William Butler Yeats, felt it in his bones, working out a visionary schematism in his prose volume A Vision and reflecting on the inevitable in his timeless poem “The Second Coming,” written one year after the end of the Great War: “And what rough beast, its hour come round at last/Slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?”

 

Robert Bork (a must read)

Slouching Towards Gomorrah hammers out Yeats’s vision in lurid contemporary detail, pointing toward a “syndrome” of collectivist attitudes dominating the culture, the debilitation of the family structure, and a “left-liberal moral consensus” diluting the text of the U.S. Constitution.

 

O’Brien and Michelet

In his master volume On the Eve of the Millennium: The Future of Democracy in an Age of Unreason, published in 1995, Irish historian Conor Cruise O’Brien was not sanguine about the prospects for Western civilization in the coming years. Civilizations have term dates and ours is fast approaching, O’Brien felt. He quotes French historian Jules Michelet’s History of France, who speaks there of “this vast concert of naïve and barbarous voices” with its “strange accents [and] fantastic and bizarre harmony,” signalling the end of a customary world. The dissolution is abetted by common lassitude, self-indulgence and studied ignorance, by those, O’Brien writes, “who are indifferent to politics, religion, virtually anything.” We watch “history on the screen with apathy and an occasional passing flicker of horror or indignation,” almost, we might say, as if we do not believe that history can happen here.

 

Toynbee (a must read)

Arnold Toynbee in his twelve-volume A Study of History, among my prize collections, articulated a theory of recurrence -- owing in part to The New Science of the 18th Century Italian political philosopher Giambattista Vico -- in which he saw patterns or cycles of growth and decay common to all civilizations, of which he isolated more than twenty-six exemplars. Though maintaining a guarded optimism that correlation is not infallibly causation and that Western Civilization might survive an otherwise inevitable debacle, he posited that once psychological devastation had gone too far, recovery would be impossible. Perhaps it was from reading Toynbee that O’Brien speculated about the onset of apathy and indifference leading to civilizational collapse. He believed we were already there.

 

Burnham

Burnham’s magisterial 1964 Suicide of the West, in which Burnham writes of a “morphological pattern,” an unmistakable trend or curve. “Over the past two generations Western civilization has been in a period of very rapid decline, recession or ebb within the world power structure.” What we call liberalism is “the ideology of Western suicide,” permitting Western Civilization “to be reconciled to its dissolution.” Although he holds out hope for a transition to a higher order above the parochial divisions of the past, which seems touchingly romantic, his analysis of the liberal virus has rarely been bettered.

 

On Feminism and Cultural Marxism

….culture-wrecking movement and socially destabilizing factor confronting the Western world: identity politics, neo-Marxism, political correctness, radical environmentalism, “climate change,” “social justice,” outcome egalitarianism, information censorship, trans-national authoritarianism, abortion on demand, anti-meritocracy, chain immigration, “white supremacy” -- the list goes on. … Feminism was no doubt a critical issue, a socially destructive and culturally malignant phenomenon, but only one of many indices of something of far greater import: the approaching disintegration of Western civilization.

 

Great Reset

As Kenneth Minogue writes, wish to “acquire power in the service of transforming the order of human life.” (Today we would call it the Great Reset.) Rather, I believed, and still believe, that every manifestation, every symptom of the sickness of our time, the self-destructive corruption, the lies and hypocrisies and weakness of spirit, the coordinated attack on the institutions and traditions that have sustained Judeo-Christian civilization, the digital surveillance project of billionaire Globaliers -- these must be resisted and fought, for there is no other choice but feckless and dishonorable surrender.

 

Conclusion based on Realism

The conclusion is foregone, but not yet. In Michael Walsh’s terms from his new book Last Stands, manly virtue fights to the foreordained end. The issue is this: We cannot deter, but we can defer.

What we are really doing, whether we know it or not, is buying time. Western civilization and its constituent nations are too far gone to be retrofitted; our internal enemies have seen to that. As Bork writes, a “soft and hedonistic culture…faces a continuing assault from within.” The prospect is grim.

 

Apathy, indifference, psychological devastation, envy and self-hatred are the norms of our present moment. America, the guarantor and bellwether of the West’s survival, has been hollowed out by its Olympian classes, the political, juridical, informational and fiscal elites -- this was Founding Father and second president John Adams’ deepest fear. In his important 2018 study John Adams and the Fear of American Oligarchy, Luke Mayville parses Adams’ conclusion that “republican governments had always been threatened by elite domination and that America would be no different.”

Dinosaur tissue lasting 65 million years? How? The scientific proof it can happen is where?

Philosophy is not Science.

The ‘science’ screams in consensus unison, that Dinosaurs died 65 million years ago in a cataclysmic and quite short-lived event.  They invoke the Big rock eradication.  When in doubt always invoke a Big Rock theory which quickly ‘mutates’ into scientific fact.  Find a big hole somewhere to justify the claim.  Not a single shred of evidence exists however for the rapid destruction of Dinosaurs.  It is theoretical conjecture based on a ‘nuclear winter’ concept, in which the Big Rock smashed into Yucatan, Siberia, northern Quebec? and within a very short period of time the Dinosaurs succumbed to ‘climate change’. 

However, most species of Dinosaurs were small, not gargantuan, so why would a Big Rock kill the gargantua but also the small and insignificant Dinosaurs, whilst not harming, ‘mammals’ who were the same size as most Dinosaurs.  Tortured theories ‘suggest’ the ‘changing climate’ impacted the Dinos ‘food supply’, arrested their ‘evolution’ and supported the ‘rise’ of mammals….etc etc.  As if they know anything.

Every single human culture worldwide has written, drawn and orally transmitted stories about Dinosaurs, some in the shape of Dragons.  American Indians told the hated White man about their fathers and grandfathers killing what would be called 4 legged Sauropods, winged Pteradactyls and perhaps the 2-legged Rex.  You see this in every culture world-wide.  How then did these ancient and not-so-ancient people know about Dinosaurs?  Were there museums circa 1850 in America with Dino relics, in Northern Europe in the 6th century, South America in the 11th century, or in Han China circa 200 BC, or in the Levant circa 1800 BC as given in the book of Job?  You can only transmit, draw and write about what you see, and the reality is that across the world, different people have described similar beasts during different epochs.  These are dismissed by ‘science’ as the ravings of the primitive, the superstitious, the ridiculous and dumb. 

Soft tissue decay is rapid.  How then can anyone find DNA, collagen and soft tissue from Dinosaurs and declare that evidence to be 65 million years old?  It is just absurd.

“Stunningly preserved ‘Cretaceous Pompeii’ fossils may not be what they seem” (Live Science).

 Source:  “We’ve been told for years that the beds of dinosaurs called psittocosaurs were buried in volcanic ash, similar to the bodies buried in Pompeii. Mindy Waisberger relays new research that calls that scenario into question. Elaine Chen of Columbia University found that the minerals encasing the dinosaur bed were much older (in Darwin Years) than the supposed pyroclastic flow. The new theory sounds somewhat Noahic:

 

However, flowing rivers would be more likely to carry a range of older sediments. And if the dinosaurs were in a burrow that suddenly collapsed around them after flooding, that would have preserved the articulated skeletons in exquisite 3D, Chen said.

So, they were buried in mud from a flood.”

There is far more science and evidence for a Great Flood than there ever will be for Evolution.  What magic preserves tissue for 65 million Darwinian years?  Where is the proof and scientific method and experimentation which grants that story credibility?

The Great Reset in 2021? Is this the pivotal year for the World Economic Forum?

Will the Sheeple surrender?

Bookmark and Share

 

2021 is going to be just as bad as 2020.  UK PM Boris (Alexander is his real name) Johnson after delivering a good Brexit deal for the UK, tweeted that the Great Reset and the Communist Build-Back-Better was on:

 

“Proud that the UK is taking over the 2021 Presidency of the G7 today. Hosting both the G7 Summit and @COP26 will make this a hugely important year for Global Britain and I look forward to welcoming our friends and allies as we beat COVID and build back better from the pandemic.” Source

 

Build Back Better is agitprop Communist pablum from the World Economic Forum, a group promoting world-government, the eradication of the nation-state and the individual; the outlawing of private-property and the communal ownership of all material wealth, and of course, eco-fascism (solar panels, bird chopping turbines, hydropower, no carbon-based energy), imposed by a global-billionaire world-governing elite. 

 

CV 19 has a 99.7% survival rate, and the average age of death is 80 with many underlying conditions.  A rational person would say protect the old, make sure the proper resources including vitamins, sunlight, UV-C radiation machines and protective gear are deployed to the afflicted age-group.  There is no need to mass-vaccinated a test concoction of mRNA on 70% of the population, nor is there a scientific rationale to use testing which has been proven to be of low quality and efficacy.  Cola, pineapples, and people testing themselves twice in one all providing positive results or in the case of multiple tests, positive and negative.  The tests are a circus.

 

The Great Reset supported by leaders around the world is supposedly a conspiracy theory.  It is however gaining credibility given that the governmental response to the Flu CV 19 has been so utterly fascistic and incompetent.  Parliaments, Constitutions, legal processes ignored or overridden.  Economies suffering their worst destruction in 300 years; businesses closed; millions out of work surviving on government subsidies; social norms effaced; religious symbols like face-diapers de rigueur and the hysterical Fake News breathlessly reporting every death as CV 19 and every day and week as the most catastrophic ever.  In most countries the death rates are at the 10-year average and there is little evidence of overwhelmed hospital systems with 10-25% of nursing staff sitting at home ‘isolating’ after yet another false-positive test.  How convenient for them.

 

Why 2021 won’t be much different than 2020.

 

1-Governments (UK and elsewhere) declare that they want 70% of the population vaccinated with a 70% effective rate.  Note to the ‘scientists’.  Logistically there is no chance in 2021 to vaccinate (produce-distribute-deploy), 70% of a population.  None. 

 

Likewise, a 70% ‘effective’ rate means nothing since the vaccination is either negative or neutral for the vast majority of the population.

 

2--Pfizer’s 53-page report clearly states that its magic poison does not stop transmission, but its data fraud claims a 95% effective rate in reducing symptoms. So how can a Vaxx lead to ‘normality’? Where is the data that it stops a spread?

 

3-Tests have proven to be non-scientific.  10.000 students at Cambridge all tested positive.  When the tests were redone 99% were negative.  So, what is the efficacy rate of tests and what is the correlation between tests and dying from CV 19?  What exactly are they testing (RNA from a wide family of viruses?)

 

2021 might be the pivot-year for the Great Rest agenda.  Will the Sheeple comply?
