Scientists want to bring woolly mammoths back

Ugh; this sort of thing surely can’t end well; have we learned nothing from Jurassic Park? 😉

Research from Harvard University is exciting some scientists about the prospects of being able to recreate the long extinct woolly mammoth. The ice age mammal’s DNA could potentially be spliced with an Asian elephant to create a hybrid.

Harvard Geneticist Professor, George Church, briefed the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) about the progress his team has made in the past two years of trying to “de-extinct” the mammoth.

Our aim is to produce a hybrid elephant-mammoth embryo,” said Church. “Actually, it would be more like an elephant with a number of mammoth traits. We’re not there yet, but it could happen in a couple of years.

His team has managed to create a hybrid “mammophant” cell and hopes to reach an embryo within the next two years. They owe some of their credit to the gene-editing tool Crispr, according to the Guardian. However, it will be many more years before a living mammophant could be lumbering around our colder climates.

Typical biologists, thinking if something can be done, it ought to, as though ‘might makes right’

Well, there’s only one thing to be done: establish a black market paying exorbitantly for mammoth fur and meat! We’ll have this hybrid mammophant species extinct in no time! 😉

UC Berkeley riots against free speech could end subsidies for left-wing colleges

Let’s hope he follows through…

WINTERY KNIGHT

For a long time now, conservative speakers have been being blocked by left-wing students and protestors. At UC Berkeley, a leftist seminary, things have spilled over into fascism and violence.

You can review some photos of the violence, vandalism and rioting in this post from the Daily Signal.

Here’s one:

Here’s an example of the violence, reported by the Washington Free Beacon:

A female Donald Trump supporter was pepper-sprayed on Wednesday night by an anti-Trump protester while she was giving an on-camera interview at the University of California, Berkeley.

“I’m looking to make a statement by just being here, and I think the protesters are doing the same,” Kiara Robles told KGO-TV. “Props to the ones who are doing it non-violently, but I think that’s a very rare thing indeed.”

You may punch your opponent during times of war IF you are a soldier AND on-duty.

Otherwise no, you’re scum.

TGC on the importance of a complementarian feminist merit badge.

Spot on. One thing that Reformational Protestants, Roman Catholics, and Eastern Orthodox are agreed upon is that clergy are only supposed to be men; accordingly, there is no point for a woman in any of these traditions to attend a theological school / seminary. None whatsoever. Waste of time and money. But, as with domestic science / household science / home economics, it is a way to feed impressionable young women agit-prop under the guise of traditionalism, and to thus ‘subvert the dominant paradigm’ (as them there progs say).

I’ve dealt with the TGC folks and their ilk in the past; alas, utterly and completely Blue Pill. They just don’t ‘get it’, and they never will…

The Gospel Coalition’s front page banner article today (archive) is 5 Reasons I’m Glad I Went to Seminary, by stay at home mom Elizabeth Garn.  In closing, Garn explains that seminary wasn’t really required for any of the five reasons she offers:

Is seminary absolutely necessary to get that foundation (or any of the other things I’ve mentioned)? No, not necessarily. Could a person learn all I learned without a seminary education? Probably. But it’s harder to do it on your own. There’s something to be said about surrounding yourself with trustworthy, godly professors who will guide you to a deeper faith in God and knowledge of his Word.

Well, there it is. That’s what I’d tell a friend if they asked whether I’m glad I went to seminary. I’d refill her coffee, double check the time to ensure we weren’t late for preschool pickup or whatever errands we…

Are women naturally good?

I notice that the FOTF graphic (a) doesn’t quote Scripture or a catechism, and (b) focuses not on wifely duty but rather on her ‘feelings’, as if wives only have to do what makes them comfortable, rather than what God commands them to do, regardless of the circumstances.

Just like Mark Driscoll, it only matters to FOTF that men be moral and obedient to the Scriptures; how women behave doesn’t matter to them.

Shows how wicked and unfaithful Driscoll, FOTF, and many similar evanjellyfish, churchian leaders are. They ought to be shunned.

Man helping a woman with proper handgun marksmanship Man helping a woman with proper handgun marksmanship

Disclaimer: This post doesn’t apply to married women.

There is a common theme among pastors and church leaders that the Bible only applies to men, and women are justified in disregarding it because anything they do that is wrong or that backfires can be blamed on men.

For example, here’s Mark Driscoll explaining how men are to blame for single motherhood:

Part of it is the unintended consequences of divorce. Forty percent of kids go to bed at night without a father. Not to be disparaging toward single moms, but if you’re a single mom and you’re working 60 hours a week, and you’ve got a boy, and he’s home all by himself with no parents and no dad, he’s just going to be hanging out with his buddies, feeding himself pizza rolls.
