Same sex parents: NOT normal. NOT good.

For nearly a decade, University of Kentucky assistant professor of psychology Rachel H. Farr has studied different aspects of family life among heterosexual, gay and lesbian parents and their adopted children. Her newest findings were published by the Developmental Psychology journal.

Repeatedly, her research noted “no differences among (heterosexual and same-sex parent) family types” in myriad characteristics like behavior problems, stress levels, couple relationships, family functionality, relationship adjustments over time, and other factors. (1)

However, this is not true.

This CANNOT be true.

The kids are not alright, as a woman who was raised with two mothers stated eloquently in an open letter she sent to the LGBT community. (2)

You cannot just name the abnormal “normal” and actually believe that everything will be alright. You cannot just name the improper “proper” and believe everything will be alright. You cannot name the different “same” and believe everything is alright. You cannot see a family of two mothers and claim that they are the same with a family of one mother and one father simply because you wish so.

No, everything is not alright.

Nature has its ways. The universe has its ways. It may be ok for some humans to do what their free will dictates, but that does not mean that the universe will not react to the result of this free will. It may be ok for some people to have their own ethics, but that does not mean that this ethics does not collide with the balance of the cosmos.

No, everything is not alright.

Families do not have two mothers. Families do not have two fathers. Families have a father and a mother. This is the rule. Yes, there can be exceptions. But these exceptions should be exactly that: exceptions. Of course one can say that in the future the norm will be different. Of course one can argue that in the future all families will have more than one mother and more than one father. But that does not make that “normal” nor “good”.

We should respect the universe. We should respect nature. We should try to grow based on our free will, but we should do that within the guidelines and limitations of the world we live in. Not doing that is not a matter of power or freedom, but a matter of arrogance and defiance.

The above has nothing to do with respecting each other for their choices. And it surely has absolutely nothing to do with treating each other equally regardless of their personal choices. Everyone can do whatever they want, given the limitations set by the laws of course (I would also refer to the limitations of ethics as well, but that is beyond the scope of this article – read “The source of ethics” for more). And it is true that the laws have changed and will change even more. In the past having two same-sex parents was unacceptable. Now it is. In the same way though, in the future things might change again. Which brings us to the point: What is acceptable by society today or tomorrow, or what is allowed by the law today or in ten years has nothing to do with the essence of the problem. Because whatever changes happen in society, our nature will still be the same. Our bodies will still be defined as men and women. And our children will always be the offspring of both. And if we want to change that nature (I would disagree with that, but again it is your right), then we should at least have the decency of saying it so, rather than calling it “normal”.

You see, that is always the most difficult part in life.

To accept the obvious.

Good night mom.

Good night dad…

Sleep tight my child…

Everything will be alright…

Smile.

That is the normal way of things…

“Freedom” & Marxism: The threat to our civilization. Christianity: The cure.

Advertisements

Neo marxist ideology has for a long time conquered the West.

Even though we believe we won the Cold War, ideologically we lost.

The materialistic ideology of the atheistic USSR, based in part on the revolutionary liberal rhetoric of the age of revolutions which started with the French Revolution, has appealed to many people. More and more we hear every day about the “right” to kill (babies), about how we do not have free will but do whatever our genes tells us to do, about how the brain produces consciousness as it has been “proved” by science (it has not), about how religion is bad and against the human “right” to do whatever we please et cetera… The protest against some wrongdoings of the church (which are clearly surpassed by the benefits generated for society – see here or “religion” tagged articles in Harmonia Philosophica for more on that) has resulted in an ongoing hatred against anything christian.

The masses in the West have been absolutely mesmerized by this liberal communist materialistic ideology.

But why is that?

Well, the answer is simple and disappointing at the same time.

This all happens mainly and simply because people are stupid. Surprised? Well, perhaps you belong in these masses. Because the masses are never keen on knowing their history (and the history of science and humanism in Europe is Christian – see here). The masses were never able to apprehend philosophy, let alone understand the solution to philosophical problems so difficult that they eluded the wisdom of the greatest philosophers of all times for thousands of years. The masses are easily lured to believe things. Mix that with massive media propaganda in favor of a materialistic and more liberal point of view, you have an exploding mixture of ignorance and pure hatred threatening to swallow up everything our civilization is based upon like a landslide.

Stupid people tend not to question what other “wisest” people tell them. If science has “proved” that we are just matter, then so must be it. Science is the new religion and if science says so, who are we to doubt it? No one cares to examine any further the stupidity of such an announcement. No one cares to check that materialism is an obsolete (for centuries now) and unproved philosophical dogma. And nobody cares to actually see if other ways of modeling reality (e.g. the human brain is a receiver of consciousness) can fit to the observational data we have (which they can). [see here for more on this matter]

Stupid people prefer tangible benefits than the truth. So if one of the possible philosophical choices grants us more “freedom” why not take that choice? People like being free. People like liberty. Why being oppressed by God? Let us become gods instead! Why being oppressed by religion? Let us be “guided” by wise scientists. It does not matter that we do not understand (let alone question) what they tell us – all it matters is that science is not called “religion”. It doesn’t matter if religion said the same things that science tells us know. (check this article) Now we have “proof”. It doesn’t matter that the only thing science proved is that if cannot prove anything [Godel]. (check “dogmatism” and “science dogmatism” articles in Harmonia Philosophica) We believe in science. Who needs virtues, when we have good tasty stakes here and now? Who needs reaching the truth while we can have sex with anyone we want here and now? Who wants philosophy when we are able to make more money here and now? Who needs rules to follow? (ok, natural laws are something else and we have no problem following them since they are soulless, objective and do not come from religion…)

We want to call ourselves “free thinking”, but we follow the good old USSR propaganda every day. We killed God in order to take His place. And we did. But without first reaching theosis. All we want is freedom. To do whatever pleases us. But we forget that the world itself has rules. We forget that life has rules. We forget that consciousness and Being also have mystical eternal rules which cannot be broken without reverberations. Believing in total and unconditional freedom is just as illusionary as believing in a Communist paradise after seeing what it has done.

A return back to the Christian values which made Western civilization great is now more than needed. It is essential for survival. We need to find our compass quick enough before we are lost in the woods of existence for ever. In a world of order, the only safe way of thinking is to follow… order. The road of ethics is a difficult one, but this is how the correct road has always been: hard to follow. We must understand that although it seems that our parents try to oppress us, they actually try their best to care for us because they love us. Our juvenile revolt against our Father has lasted all too long. We played enough. Now in the face of total extinction we must face reality and come back home. And like the prodigal son, our Father will still love us. The same as the son who stayed home…

Nooooooo!!!

(raising hands)

We want to be just matter, so we are free to do as we please!

We want to be lifeless beings, so it makes no difference if we sin or not.

We want to be pre-programmed robots.

So that we do not care what we say or do…

We wish we are all born equal (rocks) and we want sex!

Because we are “free” !!!

(raising hands again)

Yeeeeaaaahhhhh!

Wait a minute. Why is that rock staring at us? Is it smiling? Nuuuh…

The great sages agreed on how we should live.

Christ spoke about living with love. He spoke about how we can feel God if we live properly. He told us not to get frustrated about life in this world – God cares for us as He cares for the sparrow. He declared that the weak and outcasts will eventually prevail. [New Testament]

Lao Tse said the same. Be yourself. Be decent but without making any special effort. Have tolerance. Follow the flow of the Universe. As the wind blows wherever and however he wants, so happiness will appear by itself whenever it wants. Be natural, let the wind take you where it wants. [Lao Tse , Tao Te Ching]

Socrates emphasized the value of knowing yourself. He did not speak with axioms, he just wanted to speak about the truth that lies within us. His greatest wisdom was that that he knew that he did not know anything. Simple and austere, he died for what he believed as Christ some years later also did. [Plato]

Jean Jacques Rousseau said it clearly: It is more important to live in virtue than studying it! [Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on Science and the Arts] None of the above sages did leave any written monument (Tao left a single book at the urging of the guardian of the mountain pass where it was seen for the last time). And yet they defined the world. The Athenians may have had many philosophers, but the Spartans were the ones who lived virtuously. The importance of living a simple virtuous life instead of virtuous thinking is prevalent in each of these leading wise men. It may sound boring, but it’s not at all: Live simply. Most people today, led by the dominant capitalistic Protestantism, want to “do ” more and more things. But why should we “do something” at all times? [Harmonia Philosophica – see references to Feyerabend] The temporary material benefits of “doing something” cannot be compared with the happiness and completion offered by a life on the basis of “loving others and letting yourself to the care God”. It is not about fatalism. It is about wisdom. Caring only for love, toleration and forgiveness is not so “easy” as many people think. To the contrary – dealing with a thousand things and trying to make money is the easy way! Those who do not want to stay by themselves even for one minute – are afraid of themselves. Those who want more money, do not have the strength or the courage to look for the really important things in life. Those who want to “do something” usually do nothing for others.

Great wise men preferred anachoritism [αναχωρητισμός] than staying to act (Socrates, Christ, Tao, Heidegger).

It takes courage to stand still for a while and listen to the One who cries out to you: “You’re already here! You are already a part of me! Do not try to understand. Do not move constantly trying to forget yourself. Try to remember what you already know!” …

As a modern quantum mechanics physicist, Lao said “Do not pollute the world with your observation and action!” Man is the border line between the perishable world of the phenomena and the eternal world of substance. And only if we can reduce our impact to zero will we make this separation disappear.

Don’t look at the skyscapers. Look at the sparrow. [Christ] Seek the empty so that you can be full. [Tao]

Turkey, sex, oppression…

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan’s proposal to ban cohabitation for male and female students has garnered criticism nationwide. (1)

Should religion or anyone else impose values? If not, what would happen if we have NO values whatsoever?

Is banning pre-marital sex right? Is fucking around like pornstars right? Surely now we are somewhere in the middle. But towards WHERE do we want to go? What is our value target?

And last but not least: When the MAJORITY of a country WANTS to be oppressed, what can you do? 😉

Africa, imitation, disease…

Major pharmaceutical companies are increasingly looking to harness Africa’s opportunity, lured by an emerging middle class across the continent’s growing urban centers. Although the total size of the African market is still small compared to other global regions, analysts say that the continent’s big cities hold the key to unlocking the industry’s lucrative potential as far as drugs are concerned. [1]

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Africa is home to 11% of the world’s population, yet accounts for 24% of the global disease burden. “The pharmaceutical business is growing and it will grow,” says an owner of a pharmaceutical company. “It’s the next big thing in Africa”.

This “disease surge” is mainly due to Africa being driven towards western habits. A whole continent full of beautiful traditions is now on the verge of extinction. Western-type cities are built everywhere and western habits are now part of everyday life.

“We’re seeing a movement of volume towards more products that treat chronic diseases,” says Rickwood, director of Thought Leadership at IMS Health. “As urban populations are becoming wealthier, they’re more likely to have a Western diet, they’re living longer and they’re going to suffer the kind of chronic diseases that Western individuals suffer”.

This is what happens when you are not ready to defend who you are.

When you are not ready to defend your traditions and just want to imitate others instead of being yourself. African nations have lost their identity and they pay the price.
