Racism – the province of ignorance.

  My premise is that racism is based on ignorance and primitive tribalism.   We share 99% of our genes with chimpanzees. We are really nothing more than a third race of chimps. We also share nearly as much with our other close relative – the gorilla.   Human beings are extremely new as a species. We have only been on this planet for 200,000 years. Not nearly enough to evolve greatly.   The first humans were black skinned and lived on the African plains. The first white skin mutation only occurred in Europe around 15,000 years ago. Skin colour has evolved as a balance between the need for vitamin D and protection from skin cancer. Melanin is the black pigment found in skin. It protects against UV rays but stops the production of Vitamin D from sunlight. Through a number of minor mutations skin colour has evolved t…

  Ok. I read all those comments here about Charlotteville. I excuse myself, because it's not my business what happens in the US (I get often reminded of that), but what happens over there comes over here to Europe too - sooner or later. Sometimes it's good news like Elvis, Easy Rider or Noam C…

Nothing Makes Sense - a poem

Nothing Makes Sense   A trillion stars glistening like white salt crystals on black velvet; The Milky Way a band of circling smoke; A mind to witness the majestic impossibility; A mind to ponder all possibility; A sea of questions to founder in; Answers like driftwood to cling to; Facts that ar…

  See that ? Could be YOU in a couple of years. Be that in the US or here in Europe. Old age poverty will increase at a thousand percent rate. Too many people, an aging population, not enough jobs for people being able to pay income tax, and therefore the savings for social security and r…

Synchronicity - great minds think alike?

I am an antitheist and have seen no evidence for the existence of any deity, yet I find myself strongly attracted to many natural phenomena, such as sunsets, starry nights, trees, rocks, seascapes and mountains, in what I experience as a ‘spiritual’ connection and I am a great believer i…

Unfashionable as it is to say, President. Trump was right to a degree in his comments on Tuesday.   Now he was wrong about some things. Few, if any, of those demonstrating against the removal of the statue of Lee from the re-named Emancipation Park were people of good will who are opposed to an…

Ball of Confusion

Some of you might be old enough to remember the wonderful singing group The Fifth Dimensions from the late 60s and early 70s.  They were very emblematic of the counter culture movement at the time.  About 1969 or 1970 they had their hit, Ball of Confusion, a song about the complication and…
