Conservative Evangelical Nutjobs Pray for Amnesty

I don’t know whether you’re following this story but it would be comical if the stakes weren’t so high.  A bunch of conservative evangelical leaders (e.g. Richard Land and Russell Moore) formed a pro-immigration organization called the Evangelical Immigration Table, and have been involved in a scandal where they received funding from the open-borders Cultural Marxist George Soros.  A summary of the story:

First, the evangelical leaders lied about receiving money from George Soros.

Then, after they were busted, the evangelical leaders said it was okay to receive money from George Soros because Jesus told them to do so. Apparently, the lesson to be learned here is that flooding the USA with dysfunctional mestizos is of such a high priority that it really doesn’t matter where the money comes from.

With these traitorous clowns now leading the “moral majority,” I think we can all rest assured that Western Civilization will be safe.Evangelical Leaders Praying for Amnesty

Pathologial Altruism goes mainstream

Many readers here are already familiar with the concept of pathological altruism because of Barbara Oakley’s book Pathological Altruism (Oxford University Press, 2012), which is positively reviewed by Jared Taylor at American Renaissance.   But outside HBD blogs, most people are probably unfamiliar with the concept.

That may be changing.  From the Wall Street Journal:

Pathological Altruism

A simple concept that could revolutionize scientific and social thought.

By James Taranto, WSJ, June 14, 2013

We don’t think we’d ever heard of Oakland University, a second-tier institution in suburban Rochester, Mich., but Barbara Oakley, an associate professor in engineering, may help put the place on the map. Earlier this week Oakland’s Oakley published a fascinating paper, “Concepts and Implications of Altruism Bias and Pathological Altruism,” in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The paper is a concise summary of an innovative idea that informed Oakley’s two recent books: “Cold-Blooded Kindness: Neuroquirks of a Codependent Killer, or Just Give Me a Shot at Loving You, Dear, and Other Reflections on Helping That Hurts” (Prometheus, 2011) and “Pathological Altruism” (Oxford University Press, 2012). The former has been described as a true-crime thriller; the latter is a dense, 496-page collection of 31 academic papers, edited by Oakley and three other scholars.

The PNAS paper has the virtue of brevity, running only eight pages despite including 110 footnotes. Yet it’s remarkable for its breadth and depth. It introduces a simple yet versatile idea that could revolutionize scientific and social thought.

If you haven’t already, you should really read Jared Taylor’s review of Oakley’s book.

The Laws of the Cathedral. Obey or Perish!

The Laws of the Cathedral

“Those who do not heed these laws should be cast out of society and hunted down like  witches.” – The lost scroll of Universalis, 1974 CE

In the days of New, the god Universalis descended upon the world.  It (for Universalis transcends gender, race, and creed) saw human nature, saw human nature was evil, and decided to set things anew.  Universalis forthright sought to amend human nature, to turn the world upon its head, and thus laid down the Laws of the Cathedral.  “Lo and behold,” said Universalis.  “These are the laws.  I am the lawgiver.  Obey these decrees or suffer humiliation, disgrace and punishment.”

I.  Human Nature, Science, Evolution

A.  Human nature is a blank slate to be written upon by the Laws of the Cathedral.

B.  Evolution exists but only insofar as it is a club to beat up on religion.  Otherwise, the logical conclusions of evolution (such as meaningful racial or gender differences) must be silenced.  All group differences must be ignored.  No cognitive or behavioral differences between groups exist; evolution occurred only from the neck down.

C.  Homosexuality has a genetic cause but only homosexuality is heritable.  Everything else (like violence, intelligence or stupidity) is the result of culture.

D.  Race does not exist…except when it does.  For non-whites, racial pride, racial resentment, racial organization and the excuse of racism for all their failings are permissible.  For whites, race does not exist; it is a cultural construct.  Behaviorally and cognitively, all races are identical.  Remember the decree:  neck down!

E.  Gender does not exist in any meaningful way.  There are no substantial differences between the genders because, well, they don’t really exist…except when they do.  Feminism is permissible, but that’s it. Behaviorally, genders are identical.  Remember the decree:  neck down!

II.  Politics and Political Organization

A.  Democracy and only democracy is acceptable — and it must be based upon an American model replete with fast food, regime change, and globalization.

B.  Real power must never be discussed, especially the disproportionate power of one small, particularly powerful group of genetically related people.  In fact, these people shouldn’t even be discussed, let alone named, so let it be decreed that they be called the Unnamed.

C.  Immigration is bad for certain nations (like a small enclave in located at the eastern end of the Mediterranean but should never be named in this context, and the people of this unnamed nation, Universalis decrees, are permitted to sterilize and deport undesirables).  For Western nations, however, immigration is a gift of Universalis.  To question its good is to partake of evil itself. Open your borders to the teeming hordes of Gondwanaland or suffer the wrath of Universalis!

D.  Europe and Western Civilization in general, and white people in particular, are responsible for most of the world’s ills and should almost always be discussed in derogatory terms.  The racial organization of these people is never, never, never allowed. Capiche?

E.  War is bad, well, unless it’s used to crush dissenters who in some way oppose the Laws of the Cathedral; then, war is liberation.  People are thirsty for freedom and some people hate the Cathedral for the freedom it offers.

D.  Progress is good, unless it involves evil concepts like eugenics or the notion that some races are better adapted to civilization, then the Noble Savage is good.

F.  All mass media and entertainment should present images contrary to reality. Human nature is evil; the dictates of the Cathedral, good.

III.  Religion

A.  Ethno-Religion, i.e. identitarian religion, is permissible for certain groups of people, but never for European descended peoples, who must always subscribe to deracinating, universalist forms of religion.

B. Religion is generally bad, unless it’s the religion of non-Europeans, or unless religious leaders are fighting for the Cathedral (such as in supporting immigration or opposing racism).

So let these laws be decreed, let them be obeyed.  And let those who disobey them be hunted down like witches, ruined financially, and humiliated beyond measure.

Long live Universalis! So it has been spoken.  Let the world listen.


This is a rough draft and work in progress.  It is also a group project, which potentially includes you.  Let the spirit of Universalis inhabit you and please leave suggestions in comments below (to improve upon current laws or to add new laws) and your suggestions might be added to the next edition of the Laws of the Cathedral.


What is the New Creationism?


The biggest lie told about PRISM

President Obama defends PRISM as a necessary measure to stop terrorism and to save your life: “[PRISM] helps us prevent terrorist attacks.” ~ RYOT

The pro-PRISM propaganda is really amping up.  Many leftists have already criticized Obama over PRISM but I suspect they’ll soon be whipped back into line.

Perhaps the biggest lie told so far is that its primary purpose is to protect against terrorism.  If you believe that, I have some oceanfront property in Nebraska I’d like to sell you…

Despite the occasional domestic terrorist attack, most terrorists come from the Third World.  In fact, the vast majority of terrorists in the USA in the past couple decades have either been legal or illegal immigrants into the USA.   In short, terrorism is just as much an immigration issue as a national security issue, if not more so.

This is anarcho-tyranny in action.  Import a bunch of Third World terrorists into the USA and then spend billions of dollars to try to stop them, all the while infringing upon the liberties of the native-born population.

Immigration reduction is actually something that can be managed – whether through attrition or deportation.

And immigration enforcement, compared to the anarcho-tyranny immigration brings, is actually cheap, when one considers the trillions of dollars that Third World immigrants cost the USA – in education, welfare, hospital visits, etc.  Just one small example:  The state of Texas now spends over $1 billion annually on ESL (English-Second-Language courses) alone!

Spoiler: Falling Skies, Season 3

OK.  I admit it.  I don’t have confidential knowledge of the plot structure of Season 3 of Falling Skies but I can tell you what we’ll probably see a lot more of….

In a previous post, “Cheerios peddles Cultural Marxism,” JayMan noted that interracial romances are and will be minority.  This might well be true — in the real world.

In TV land, however, things are different. As noted in “Human Nature vs. Hollywood Political Correctness,” much of what Hollywood and the mass media push, although contrary to norms found in nature, is peddled in an attempt to alter society.  I wrote,

“Traditionally, stereotypes are in accordance with reality.  Like oral epic poetry, traditional stereotypes are the accumulation of generational wisdom of various folkways. Unhappy with the reality of the stereotypes, however, many Cultural Marxists began in the mid 20th century to try to reverse these stereotypes, the idea being that if the stereotype is reversed, so reality will be reversed.  Hollywood has  followed suit.”

A timely example of this phenomenon is the popular television series Falling Skies, where a significant number of characters in the series seems to be involved in mixed-race relationships.  In fact, miscegenation might well become the norm in this series.  Some examples:

Tom Mason (white) & Anne Glass (Asian)

Jeanne Weaver (white) & Diego (mestizo)

Lourdes (mestizo) & Jamil (black)

Ben Mason (white) & Denny (black)

And I expect there will be more….especially considering that this series is produced by Steven Spielberg, who has a long history of anti-Western hostility.

Yes, I know I have mixed-race readers, and I wish them well.  Mixed-race relationships have occurred and will happen.  However, if a forward-thinking group values its long-term genetic survival, then same-race relationships should be the projected norm.

The funny thing about most science fiction today is that there’s nothing truly futuristic about it, except for (often unbelievable) futuristic technology.  In terms of themes and morality, the genre is completely stuck in 20th century Cultural Marxism – which is most often maladaptive and not forward thinking at all.  What we need is a good  science fiction series inspired by archeofuturism… Now that would be daring!

Historical Reality: Infanticide vs Abortion

From the recent interview with Napoleon Chagnon (which we discuss in post “Outstanding Edge interview with Napoleon Chagnon“):

DENNETT: Would you imagine discovering a behavior, a practice, a policy in a tribe that was so repugnant to Western sensibilities that you would decide not to write about that?

CHAGNON: Well, the Yanomamö practice infanticide occasionally, and it’s for a variety of reasons. One of them being if they suspect that the newborn infant is deformed, and it can be traced right back to parental investment. Why invest in a losing prospect? Let’s terminate the infant now and start anew. Another example of infanticide is, this is even rarer, that some guy was cuckolded by, or suspected he was cuckolded by some other guy, and he puts pressure on his wife to kill the new infant. That’s not very common, but I’ve heard of it. And I began reporting, as soon as I learned this, that the Yanomamö practice infanticide, and I didn’t make a big case out of it. When I learned that a deputado in the Venezuelan government—which is basically like a representative or a senator—had learned that there were people in her country that were killing their own children, she wanted to go in and arrest these people and put them in jail. So I stopped reporting any information I acquired about Yanomamö infanticide, not because it was disgusting to Westerners, because I’ll bet if you looked at the abortion rate in Venezuela in middle class women, their rate of abortion would be much, much higher than the Yanomamö infanticide.

PINKER: Well, in fact, historically, I’ve seen an estimate—it averages over many peoples, and there’s a lot of variation underneath it—that the traditional infanticide rate was about 15 percent of live births, which is pretty close to the …

CHAGNON: In Western culture?

PINKER: No No, in non-Western cultures. Which is pretty close to the abortion rate in the West, until recently.

CHAGNON: Oh, really?

PINKER: The abortion rate has since then come down. But there is something to the idea that abortion in the West serves a similar purpose to infanticide in traditional cultures.

CHAGNON: That’s right. It’s a definitional matter, so don’t get uptight about Yanomamö practicing infanticide when your sister or your wife has had an abortion. I mean if you want to make a moral issue out of it, let’s include everybody.

It’s this sort of frank discussion that you see missing from both liberal and conservative pundits today.

A few thoughts:

– In hunter gather societies, it seems that infanticide was widespread.  This practice continues into ancient agricultural societies.  For instance, in Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and Medieval Europe, infanticide was still quite common.  This would involve disposing of the infant, infant exposure, strangulation,  or more dramatic events like Spartans throwing “defective babies” from cliffs.

– Contrary to the impression given by many pro-life advocates, the infanticide rate throughout almost all of human history was just as high as, if not higher than, modern abortion rates.

– The decline of infanticide in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries probably had more to do with industrialization releasing Europeans from the constraints of a Malthusian existence than with any change in morality.


Outstanding Edge interview with Napoleon Chagnon

Cultural Anthropologists: Small-Minded Guardians of Political Correctness

Is ‘Natural Law’ Anti-Nature?”


Langer on infanticide: During the Middle Ages, exposure was a prevalent practice due to overpopulation and the large numbers of illegitimate births. During the Renaissance in Italy, the abandonment rate was in excess of 50 percent of all babies. In seventeenth-century China, Jesuit missionaries reported that thousands of infants, mostly female, were deposited in the streets. In 1741 Thomas Coram, a retired sea captain, was so disturbed by the sight of infant corpses lying in the gutters and rotting on dung heaps that he opened Foundling Hospital in England to ‘suppress the inhuman custom of exposing new-born infants to perish in the streets’.

Outstanding Edge interview with Napoleon Chagnon

The Edge offers a thorough interview with Napoleon Chagnon (whom we already discussed in post “Cultural Anthropologists: Small-Minded Guardians of Political Correctness“), which includes Steven Pinker, Richard Wrangham, Daniel C. Dennett, and David Haig, with an introduction by Richard Dawkins.  It’s really a must read.

Here’s Dawkin’s introduction:

“Napoleon Chagnon is a Living World Treasure. Arguably our greatest anthropologist, he is brave on two fronts. As a field worker in the Amazon forest he has lived, intimately and under conditions of great privation, with The Fierce People at considerable physical danger to himself. But the wooden clubs and poison-tipped arrows of the Yanomamö were matched by the verbal clubs and toxic barbs of his anthropologist colleagues in the journal pages and conference halls of the United States. And it is not hard to guess which armamentarium was the more disagreeable to him.

Chagnon committed the unforgivable sin, cardinal heresy in the eyes of a certain kind of social scientist: he took Darwin seriously. Along with a few friends and colleagues, Chagnon studied the up-to-date literature on natural selection theory, and with brilliant success he applied the ideas of Fisher, Hamilton, Trivers and other heirs of Darwin to a human tribe which probably ran as close to the cutting edge of natural selection as any in the world. It is sobering to reflect on how unconventional a step this was: science bursting into the quasi-literary world of the anthropology in which the young Chagnon was trained. Still today, in many American departments of social science, for a young researcher to announce a serious interest in Darwin’s dangerous idea—even an inclination towards scientific thinking at all—can come close to career suicide.” [Continue reading….]

Dawkins “gets it,” although he plays coy. Recently on Twitter, however, Dawkins is becoming more daring (you know, opposing anti-white racism and talking about eugenics and all).  Hopefully, he’ll eventually get himself Watson’d and prove he has a pair.

By the way, it goes without saying, the Cultural Marxists are going to have their panties in a wad over this Chagnon interview.

Documents: U.S. mining data from 9 leading Internet firms; companies deny knowledge

Washington Post, June 6, 2013

The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post.

The program, code-named PRISM, has not been made public until now. It may be the first of its kind. The NSA prides itself on stealing secrets and breaking codes, and it is accustomed to corporate partnerships that help it divert data traffic or sidestep barriers. But there has never been a Google or Facebook before, and it is unlikely that there are richer troves of valuable intelligence than the ones in Silicon Valley.

Religion 2.0: Identitarian Religion

Recently, there have been many discussions about ethnocentrism and religion (see here, here, here, herehere and here).

Something interesting is taking place in Western religion.  Although the waves are small, one is witnessing the rise of identitarian religion.  What is identitarian religion?  It’s ethno-religion, basically the religious norm for 99% of human history.  In fact, the extreme universalism of Christianity over the past few centuries is the historical aberration. So, when I say “religion 2.0,” this religion is really nothing new, but a return to a traditional concept of religion.

For more on the rise of identitarian thought in general, see Génération Identitaire, Golden Dawn, or Identitär Idé.

With Christianity today, two things are simultaneously taking place:

(1) Outside the West, Christianity is rapidly becoming a non-Western religion.  (See Philip Jenkins writings on Africa and Latin America, for instance.)

(2) Inside the West, a hyper-PC, hyper-universal for of Christianity has taken hold, what some people are calling Christian Cultural Marxism.

Nonetheless, on the periphery of the extreme universalist Christianity in the West, one is witnessing the rebirth of an older form of Christianity, Identitarian Christianity.

Some examples: Pro-Western Christianity; Traditional ChristianityLawrence Auster; Thinking Housewife; Chronicles; Faith and Heritage; Spirit, Water, Blood; Kinist Review; Tribal Theocrat; OrthoSphere; Generation5; etc.

Yet, we’re simultaneously witnessing the rise of neo-paganism, people of European ancestry returning to their ancient ancestral religions.

Most popular example of neopaganism:  Asatru Folk Assembly.

These two groups are often antagonistic toward each other.  But I wonder.  As Nick Land has written of the different groups of the Dark Enlightenment putting aside their differences, at least temporarily, to oppose the Cathedral, I wonder whether these two religious groups (Identitarian Christians and Neo-Pagans) could do the same?

Poll:  To oppose rife political correctness / Cultural Marxism, could various identitarian religious groups (like Pro-Western Christians and Neopagans) temporarily get along?

Outstanding essay on Richard Wagner

One of the first posts I made at Occam’s Razor was about J.R.R. Tolkien’s indebtedness to German Romanaticism, so I was very pleased when I started reading Collin Cleary’s series on Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen.  It’s a five part series and, as of tonight, he’s put up the first three installments, which I’ve anxiously been reading in bed every night on my Blackberry:

Wagner’s Place in the Germanic Tradition: Part 1: The Origins of Der Ring des Nibelungen

Wagner’s Place in the Germanic Tradition: Part 2: The Story of Der Ring des Nibelungen

Wagner’s Place in the Germanic Tradition: Part 3: Wagner’s Use of Source Materials for the Ring

This is some really good stuff.  Collin Cleary presents one of the most lucid and probing accounts of the Ring cycle I’ve ever read.

My only one minor quibble with the series, so far, is that he makes too much fuss about the “German” sources vs the “Scandinavian” sources.  If one but takes a step back, they’re all Germanic in the broad sense — closely related tribes going back to the Völkerwanderung.

That said, I cannot wait to read the next two installments.  You should set aside some time to read this series.  If you know nothing of the Ring cycle, this will serve as an accessible introduction.

Cheerios peddles Cultural Marxism

It seems that Cheerios is peddling Cultural Marxism:

Yes, I know, some of my readers are of mixed-race, and I wish them well. There have been and will be mixed-race couples. But, still, from the perspective of a healthy race, this is a question of normalization, and you should want your racial norm to be one of same-race marriage so as to ensure that individuals of your race are able to maximize their ethnic genetic interests.  In other words, I don’t want my race to go extinct.  No one should want his race to go extinct.  I want my children and descendants to look like me and my ancestors.

It’s interesting that when it comes to peddling Cultural Marxism, American corporations seem to be worse than any old-school state-sponsored socialism.

PC Thought Police go after Geoffrey Miller

Geoffrey Miller has caused quite the stir on twitter (see here and here).

From the Daily Mail:

A New York University psychology professor has caused outrage among the academic community after he posted a message on Twitter suggesting that obese PhD students are not capable of completing the program.

Geoffrey Miller, who specializes in evolutionary psychology, tweeted on Sunday: ‘Dear obese PhD applicants: If you don’t have the willpower to stop eating carbs, you won’t have the willpower to do a dissertation. #truth.’

Professor Miller, who is visiting NYU from the University of New Mexico, quickly deleted the message after a backlash from students and professors alike.

It was a flippant comment that is now being used by PC Cops to try to destroy Miller (probably for other reasons).

Miller does have tenure, but I suppose he’s worried about other repercussions. Overall, Miller is an outstanding scholar unafraid to challenge politically correct propaganda.  Here are some recent articles:

Chinese Eugenics” (2013)

Why the seduction crowd picked up on my work” (2013)

Are pleiotropic mutations and Holocene selective sweeps the only evolutionary-genetic processes left for explaining heritable variation in human psychological traits?” (2010)

The looming crisis in human genetics” (2009)

If Miller does get Galileo’d, as others have suggested, at least he’ll be in good company — including not only Galileo himself, but James Watson, Francis Crick, Satoshi Kanazawa, Jason Richwine, et al.

Remember, the Cathedral (aka, political correctness / universalism / Cultural Marxism) is a religion; people who violate it are seen as heretics; the truth value of their statements is irrelevant.

Political correctness today is anti-science, which is why any unbiased seeker of truth will ultimately oppose it.  In the words of Miller himself:

How to Really Eat Like a Hunter-Gatherer: Why the Paleo Diet Is Half-Baked

Ferris Jabr, Scientific American, June 3, 2013

We are not biologically identical to our Paleolithic predecessors, nor do we have access to the foods they ate. And deducing dietary guidelines from modern foraging societies is difficult because they vary so much by geography, season and opportunity

[Continue reading….]

While this article is insightful, it overlooks the racial differences in adaptation to carbs.  Some groups (e.g. Europeans and North Asians) have been in agriculture and eating carbs for roughly 10,000 years, while other groups (e.g. Africans and Amerindians) were engaged in hunter-gatherer lifestyles until fairly recently (in evolutionary terms). As Cochran & Harpending and others have pointed out, various human groups have undergone immense selection pressure (often correlated with continental races) over the past 10,000 years.

A question for paleo dieters:  Since I’m of European ancestry, and since my ancestors have been eating carbs for roughly 10,000 years and seem to be adapted to eating carbs, why would I want to switch to the paleo diet?

Please explain….


Mexico’s Diabetes Epidemic


I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but staple carb crops like wheat and rice and produce overwhelmingly more calories per acre than can hunter-gatherer diets. Obviously, it wouldn’t be sustainable for most people in the world to be on the paleo diet.  It would be a strange irony if those who seem more adapted to eating carbs (like Europeans) were to switch to a paleo diet, while those less adapted (e.g. many in the Third World) were forced to eat carbs.
