IN THIS ISSUE:
If you’re wondering when masculine ideals will end their progressive spiral into oblivion, the answer is no time soon. The cover of last week’s Time Magazine featured a hot 26-year-old mom breastfeeding her almost 4-year-old son. The story is about Dr. Bill Sears, a parenting educator who advocates “extreme child-rearing techniques” such as mothers breastfeeding and sleeping in the same bed as their aged children. You can see a picture of the cover at the below link. Chances of this kid growing up to be an alpha male are zero.
One of the most dangerous things about the internet is how easy it is to use. People with single digit IQs can easily post data no matter how flawed that data may be. This has created an internet confirmation bias that has grown to ridiculous levels. A confirmation bias is a term in psychology that refers to the tendency of people to favor information that confirms their already existing beliefs. In other words, if a person gets a strange idea in their head and does a Google search looking for supporting data, they will get connected to all the other insane people on the planet who share that idea. The result appears to be confirmation, even though the idea is completely insane.
To see an example of this, type “Jesus Christ was a hermaphrodite” into a Google search and do some clicking. Then search for “George Bush is a reptilian alien lizard” and watch all the video proof on YouTube. Submit an average person to this for long enough, and they will start to consider what they see. Take someone who already tends to believe something insane, have them search for supporting data on the internet, and as they find it, they will believe with certainty.
A smart man searches for flaws in the stories he reads or hears, never confirmation of what he is being told. You can find more information on the confirmation bias on Wikipedia (which will confirm everything I just told you – oh, the irony).
Archaeologists have discovered a Mayan calendar that goes way past 2012 in the ruins of Xultun. You can give the below link to the next crazed idiot who tells you the world is about to end.
You will have to give all that you can give to become all that you can be.
That’s it for now… Go make it happen!
