It is discovered that H.G. Wells was wrong in his prediction. We need not wait until AD 801702 to see the English devolve into the troglodyte cannibal Morlock and the effete, pampered frail and helpless Eloi too foolish to realize … Continue reading
I have seen the Veronica Mars film, and it was wonderful. It made me proud to live in an America where private citizens can pool their funds in an entrepreneurial spirit, and get made the films that Hollywood is too … Continue reading
Frankly, since a young age, I have felt nothing but immense distaste toward advertisements, mostly because my icy and dispassionate Houyhnhnm mind could see the logical errors in the presentation, the appeals to emotion, and so on. I understood that … Continue reading
A reader with the Romano-militant yet trisdekaphilic name of Centurion13 writes his opinion of the sour Leftists who anoint themselves our elite: “No wonder they hate Christianity so. Not only does it deny everything they are; it pulls the mask … Continue reading
Deep thought and sudden insight inspired me to add another point to my theory: If we could also explain why the Rich, who are routinely vilified by the Left number among its most ardent supporters, or the secular Jews, our … Continue reading
I received many nice comments on my article on the Unified Field Theory of Liberal Madness recently published in this space. Most of the compliments, of course, should be passed along to Evan Sayet (KinderGarden of Eden), who came up … Continue reading

I came across this quote by Robert Heinlein, the Dean of Science Fiction. “The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes … Continue reading
It is with the same disquiet that one might feel stepping into a cold morgue, where a body killed after continuous pain from some deadly nerve gas he inhaled on purpose might be seen laying on a steel slab, to … Continue reading
It is amazing what you can find on the internet. There is a chess variant game called Baroque that my older brother Steven and his patrolleader Scott Turpin once showed me in my youth. I showed this game to my … Continue reading
This is among the best movie, if not THE best I have ever seen. The critics panned it, no one went to see it, and it is already gone from the theaters. What went wrong?

Is there sex in heaven? A reader asks: On this earth, we’re never going to run away from the problem of fidelity, whether sexual or emotional, and it may be prudent to err on the side of caution in terms … Continue reading
Someone asked me what was the sense of wonder of which so many science fiction readers speak and so many science fiction writers attempt to capture. Its a question that requires a long essay to answer adequately, so I will … Continue reading
Here is a question I never tire of answering, albeit I am sure others grow tired of hearing it answered: Let me start out by mentioning that I am a faithful Catholic. I believe in the empty tomb, and I … Continue reading
