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.

Helicopter Parents

Helicopter parents are not only making childhood into a jail sentence, parents are harming their children in many ways:

  • Parents are keeping children infantile, unable to function unattended, unable to avoid dangers on their own, unable to get themselves out of scrapes, unable to judge just how dangerous something is.
  • Such children become so dependent they fear leaving home, even in their twenties.
  • As Robert A. Heinlein advised Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
  • Parents teach paranoia of strangers. Abductions by strangers are extremely rare, and even rarer than they were 60 years ago. As adults, these children cannot socialise properly because they are needlessly frightened of new faces.
  • Parents never let their children outside for imaginative, strenuous unstructured play. They turn kids into dull couch potatoes.
  • The rarer stranger abductions are, the more the media cover them. There are thousands of things more dangerous to children that parents ignore. Read Steven Pinker’s The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined.
  • Police in Maryland intervened when parents permitted their children to walk to school. When I was a child, everyone either walked or biked to school. The Maryland law is enforcing irrational paranoia.

Slaughter OK By God

By the divine providence [animals] are intended for man’s use… Hence it is not wrong for man to make use of them, either by killing or in any other way whatsoever.

~ St. Thomas Aquinas (born: 1225 died: 1274-03-07 at age: 48)

Earth Expected To Fry

The accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers has published a report warning businesses that we are headed for a 4.0°C (7.2°F) or even a 6.0°C (10.8°F) [global temperature rise].

~ Naomi Klein (born: 1970-05-08 age: 44) This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate

To put that in perspective, since the start of the industrial revolution, up to now, we have had a 0.18°C (0.32°F) rise.

Meaning without God

Christians ask atheists How can life have meaning without God?. In euthanasia debates, I discovered the essence of the Christian argument was you did not have the right to escape suffering because Jehovah owns you and he does not like people vandalising his property. This applies to Christians and non Christians alike. So life with god is like living with an imaginary slavemaster. You create your own suffering to placate him. I would think then the notion of life without god would be as pleasant as any other emancipation or deliverance from delusion.
