Canadian Mind Products • mindprod.com


CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

The image in the top left corner is blinded by creationism.

Glimpsing Reality

Those who shepherd flat earth creationists work very hard to keep them from learning anything about the world least it shake their faith.

I read a story about a creationist travelling on a steamship in the 1800s. He struck up a conversation with the captain. He asked whether they used the flat earth or global earth model to navigate. The captain explained that navigation required the global earth model. Accurate navigation would be impossible otherwise. At that very sentence, the creationist rejected his whole teaching.

A Christian is like someone who voluntarily wears a bag over her head to prevent knowledge like that from getting in. But every once in a while it leaks. You never know when that leak will appear, so you have to be patient, feeding the Christian knowledge about the world, repeatedly.

Simple Language

I notice that you use plain, simple language, short words and brief sentences. That is the way to write English — it is the modern way and the best way. Stick to it; don’t let fluff and flowers and verbosity creep in. When you catch an adjective, kill it. No, I don’t mean utterly, but kill most of them — then the rest will be valuable. They weaken when they are close together. They give strength when they are wide apart. An adjective habit, or a wordy, diffuse, flowery habit, once fastened upon a person, is as hard to get.

Drug Cartels

The war on drugs is running into the same problems that the prohibition of alcohol had. Drug cartels have become the effective government in Latin America just as organised crime took over during prohibition. The USA and Canada are unwilling to consider any approach other than the war on drugs. The reasons are ideological and financial. They have too much invested in the war on drugs and prisons to consider any other approach. Even though Canada and the USA do the bulk of the drug consuming, the bulk of the pain goes to the drug producing countries in Latin America. Latin America is hurting so much they are now willing to try other approaches. The USA and Canada refuse to listen. Why is everyone being so stubborn when there are countries who are having relatively little trouble with drugs. Let us do what they are doing.
