Black Culture is Cancer

New Video “Let’s Get Real About Chicago” added to playlist Black Culture is Cancer


@GodsAutopsyCom

Posted a link from my Facebook, hopefully my Facebook account won’t be suspended.

This Culture and Ideology Needs Reform

Why do I say that black culture is cancer? It has nothing to do with blacks as people, or race, but it has everything to do with cultural norms and intolerance. There are whites, Latinos and Asians who suffer from black/hip hop cultures as well. There is overwhelming evidence that the hip hop and black cultures are saturated with far-right extremist social views, while being fiscally liberal or socialist. The vast majority of mid to lower income blacks in America have been and are quite Marxist, racist (racially biased), homophobic, anti-intellectual, a large percentage is still pro-life and they are generally socially conservative. Let’s just say that if 90% of blacks were quite wealthy, they’d be fans of Bush, Trump and Reagan.

Marxist-Inspired Delusions

I live and work in Chicago. I’ve grown up here. I went to many all-black schools. I understand the culture. I understand the intolerance of outside influences. Marxism, social justice advocacy and fuck-whitey attitudes have been waiting to happen. It’s the natural result of a country that doesn’t ridicule and attack all bad ideas and bad cultural norms equally. It’s safe to attack Christianity, it’s safe to attack Mormonism, it’s safe to attack flat-Earthers or conspiracy theorists, only because they’re either perceived to be ‘strong’ or dominant groups or are big enough to take the criticism, or the groups are small enough for us in the West to feel warranted in the attempt to stop their ideas from metastasizing. However, because there was a such thing as slavery, blacks have been socially and politically able to get away with murder. Imagine that black people are white people, and now debate, challenge or probe them the same way you would any white or Asian person. If you worked in media, and held every race, religion or culture to the same standards your career would be annihilated. Everyone knows it, especially SJW‘s. That’s why they love double standards; they’re fascists and proud of it. Be objective, and you would be ostracized and threatened by the left. Just ask Stacy Dash.

The reason skeptics and new atheists are quick to challenge and criticize groups like Black Lives Matter, is because these movements are based on bad ideas and harbor lies and nefarious behaviors.

Stand Up And Be Vocal

There are career goals of mine which I fear will be affected if more reasonable people don’t stand up. The good thing is that more and more people are talking about this issue, and treating black people fairly, that is, treating black culture and BLM exactly the way they would a white organization! Telling the truth. Unlike anything you see neo-liberals doing. Support me, and support anyone who wants to eliminate double standards by talking about these issues honestly, and NOT omitting certain facts (like Reuters, TYT,  any of the alphabet news outlets).

Objective and Honest Criticism is Racist

Nobody in media wants to be called a racist, so they ironically are all being racist by handling what minorities do with much much softer criticism than they would with whites or Asians. This mirrors the migrant issues in Europe. I’m 0% racist, and nothing I’ve written here should be controversial in a rational world. However, this isn’t a rational world. Be highly suspicious of the liberal ass who says “everyone’s a little bit racist.” Look up racist, and you’ll soon realize that your liberal friend IS a bit racist. He or she is treating minorities differently because of their race. Try treating people differently according to their actions.

Thanks to people like The Amazing Atheist, Atheism is Unstoppable, Sam Harris, Ben Shapiro, Dusty Smith etc, who take risks talking about this issue objectively.

Is Your Beach Body Dangerous?

Is Your Beach Body a Harmful, Triggering or Otherwise Dangerous Symbol of Oppression Toward Women of Various Sizes in the U.K. and the U.S.?

In case you haven’t heard, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has banned this “offensive” or “misogynistic” ad. Another side effect of the fear of exposure to the “wrong” narrative disease. See Exposure Fallacy.

this post is very late, but, it was in my drafts, so here you go

Asking the question ‘is your beach body ready?’, is just like asking the question, ‘are you ready to show off your hard work?’. However, some have viewed this ad as being an attack on the malleable, vulnerable mind. Minds that can’t tell the difference between an ad, and real life; minds that can’t tell the difference between beauty standards for mainstream advertising and beauty standards for actual cultures and societies. I’ve got a question for you: who the hell and where the hell are these programmable humans?

Mere-Exposure Effect Fallacy

I have written about the fact that people actually do know what they think and why they think it, and they do not hold contradictory beliefs about any given subject. Go figure! This only seems counter-intuitive because the average person is terrible at articulating what it is they believe and why. Others, many of whom would like to think of themselves as the intelligentsia, are terrible at the Socratic method.

Third Wave Feminism is largely about telling people what to think, because the feminist actually thinks he/she has the power to do so


The Single Perspective

In terms of peoples’ world views, how people learn and how they change their minds, I have called my model on the neural physiological nature of our world views as the Single Perspective Hypothesis, namely, you hold one single cosmic perspective as opposed to two or more conflicting cosmic perspectives or understandings of nature.

Try speaking for yourself more often, and try ignoring the ads you don’t like. Some of us go to the beach for the beach itself, some of us go to the beach to show off, some for other things. If you’re the former, you should ignore this ad. Violent video games don’t make murderers, and ads aren’t to blame for bulimia.

Third Wave Feminism is largely about telling people what to think, because the feminist actually thinks he/she has the power to do so. Also because they believe the patriarchy has had, and does have the power to control the public mind. As I’ve said in the last post, and we can reasonably induce, that they’re thinking, ‘How could anyone possibly disagree with me?! The only way it’s possible is if their minds have been warped by propaganda!’ This would explain why most feminists aren’t as interested in debating as they are with trying to control the media, shutting down free speech, banning things, blocking people they disagree with and otherwise attempting to control the narrative. Because they don’t need to question whether they’re right or wrong, to empirically verify all their arguments, to stop calling everything and everyone ‘sexist’, they just know they’re right, and now it’s time to destroy the opposition. That’s why they fight dirty.


If you’re not interested in or trying to understand the positions or perspectives of those you disagree with, then you’re no skeptic.

Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk is More Than 50 Percent Regressive

No Kyle, just because someone is on the “left” doesn’t mean they deserve my respect and support. A regressive is a regressive and we don’t criticize the C.J. Werleman’s or the Reza Aslan’s for the fuck of it. You lost me around 12:50.

Secular Talk (@KyleKulinski) | Twitter

In the description of the video: “(New Atheists) Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Bill Maher, Daniel Dennett, Penn Jillette, Ayaan Hirsi Ali. And (Progressives) Glenn Greenwald, Noam Chomsky, Reza Aslan, Cenk Uygur, Chris Hedges, CJ Werleman”

Institutionalized Racism in Hollywood

Is There Institutionalized Racism in Hollywood or the General Media?

Warning, I’m going to be brutally honest and as logical as I can, so if you’re a member of the regressive left (and you know who you are), press alt+arrow-left or whatever, because this blog post is about to get a bit problematic.

Just recently had a discussion on Facebook about the video below by ATTN: and couldn’t help but write a long reply to an assertion of ‘institutionalized racism’ against ‘people of color’ or POCs. My reply was long enough to be a blog post so, here it is in a nutshell.

First, the video that inspired the discussion, followed by my problematic comment.

“I, of course, support differing ideas, especially ones I disagree with, like this one being discussed. But what is the idea? The idea that there is this grand conspiracy of white writers, directors and producers who knowingly intend to portray minorities in a certain negative light for…some nefarious purpose(s)? What could one of those purposes be? “Let’s keep minorities out of cinema”? “Let’s make life harder for minorities”? I don’t think so. Second point, I don’t buy that anyone takes Hollywood so seriously to the point that it actually influences what we think about people. Life contradicts fiction everyday, life especially contradicts Hollywood, everyone knows it, but, everyone seems to think Hollywood is an influence on(the moral or stereotypical opinions of) OTHERS, but not themselves. It’s demonstrable that society influences Hollywood, not Hollywood that influences society. I’m scratching my head as to why everyone seems to think it’s the other way around. There is zero, and I mean literally zero, demonstrable evidence that media/Hollywood etc, has a predictable influence on the opinions of those exposed to glowing boxes that make sound. First, let’s identify the true source of whatever has gone wrong before reading the minds of some vast unidentified number of producers/writers/directors who’s naughty intentions rob opportunities from poor POCs.”

I’ll explain in a later post why I think the media isn’t nearly as influential as everyone religiously believes it is.

What Christians Really Mean Vol 001

WHAT CHRISTIANS REALLY MEAN

vol 1

1.) “The LORD works in mysterious ways.”

what they usually mean: “I have no idea why things happen the way that they do. / It’s very hard for me to ever predict what God’s going to do at any given time.”


2.) “God is good all the time.”

what they usually mean: “When bad things happen, as they inevitably will, make sure you keep a smile on your face and thank God for not making it even worse. / Show God how thankful you are that he didn’t turn “bad” into “worse”, because if you don’t, he just might.”


3.) “The LORD never gives you more than you can handle.”

what they usually mean: “God will never give you too much pain or suffering, especially the kind that would drive you insane.” However, some people actually do endure too much pain and suffering, even to the point of suicide.

4.) “I hate the sin, but love the sinner.”

what they usually mean: “I hate what you’re doing, but I’d love you when or if you chose to stop.”


5.) “God-willing.”

what they usually mean: “I hope God chooses to do this particular thing in your life or mine, however, I don’t want to impose my will on him and piss him off.”

Scalpel to the Scriptures Vol 07

Scalpel to the Scriptures: Vol 7

Critique of the bible. Last week: Genesis 4

STTS Archive | Previous | Next


 @GodsAutopsyCom | gods autopsy on fb

Genesis Chapter 5 (KJV)

This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: – Note that at the age of 130, Adam had produced enough children to populate Nod so that Cain could flee there and marry his sister. Now, don’t forget that at 130, Adam and Eve could have been reproducing at mere months or days old. (In this myth, the first ever married couple were infants.)

And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: …right.

And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. – “…and he died”? Really? I would have thought that after 930 years he’d have gone skiing.

And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters: 

And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died. 

And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

10 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:

11 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.

12 And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel:

13 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:

14 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.

15 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

16 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:

17 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.

18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:

19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.

21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. – ?

25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech.

26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:

27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

28 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:

29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed.

30 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:

31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

32 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth. – To all the Christians who believe this, please tell me why. 

There really was not a lot to criticize in Vol 7. There is no confirmed evidence of people having lived over 150 years. This chapter just gives a very vague idea of how many people were on Earth before God comes in and drowns everyone alive. So how many people exist by the end of chapter 5? I have no clue.

The Young Turks reported a woman turning 127 in their 2014 video titled: The World’s Oldest Person, You Won’t Believe How Old She Is!

Intuition vs Reality

photo: seventhusiastic.com
eric-ga – by @GodsAutopsyCom | facebook.com/godsautopsy

Why do people believe crazy or stupid things? In 2015, in the information age, it seems the only reason one can be strongly convinced of stupid or bad ideas is that they’re relying too heavily on their own personal intuitions. Assuming this person has reliable access to the internet, and doesn’t suffer from some mental disorder, there’s no good reason to be absolutely convinced that the moon was once split in half, or that Earth is between 6,000 and 10,000 years old, for example. If a statement/claim or scientific finding seems utterly preposterous to someone, their initial reaction may be to reject the truth of the claim, and they may never again re-examine this position. They may never give their conclusion a second thought, and they may continue to arrange their life around a growing pile of conclusions which are based on a faulty premise(s).

in·tu·i·tion

ˌint(y)o͞oˈiSH(ə)n/
noun
 
  1. the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
    “we shall allow our intuition to guide us”
    synonyms: instinct, intuitiveness
    • a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.
      plural noun: intuitions
      “your insights and intuitions as a native speaker are positively sought”
      synonyms: hunch, feeling (in one’s bones), inkling, (sneaking) suspicion, idea,sense, notion;

I Just Know That I Know

I challenge you to listen to any church sermon, or go out and debate any theist, and try to find just one argument that isn’t based on rationalist intuition. Rationalists, as opposed to empiricists, believe that they can ration what is true just by thinking things out. You’ll probably hear the it-just-makes-sense-to-me argument, or the argument from (personal) incredulity for their theistic worldviews. After preaching for a bit, the typical apologist looks at you and gives you the “in your gut, doesn’t this argument just make sense?” expression, articulating his or her personal incredulity to atheism or agnosticism.

Spiritual Intuition

Belief in supernatural intuition is worse still. A supernatural (or spiritual) force which can reveal to you the truth of reality, can point out the source and distance of a pair of staring eyes in the room, or can simply help you read others’ minds or emotional states, is a pernicious way to draw conclusions. Spiritual energy and intuition is the stuff of junk science, there is no empirical evidence for any of it.

Empiricism

I’m not saying that I’m never wrong or never make mistakes in judgement, but since my de-conversion through skepticism, I’ve separated my personal intuition and empiricism as much as possible. I’ve made empiricism completely superior to rationalism. It seems that anyone carrying around fallacious convictions in the 21st century has but one problem: they fundamentally do not understand logic. I’m afraid it’s that simple.

Let’s take any two people that disagree on a subject, place them in a room together, and watch them argue. If both of them are unshakably convinced of their conclusions, it should be clear that they are either both wrong, or one of them simply isn’t thinking logically about the evidence. There is then little or no reason left, while of course remaining agnostic about variables which haven’t yet been demonstrated, for logical people to disagree about the facts of reality.

The Truth is Sometimes Counter-Intuitive

My argument is that if you’ve been raised from childhood to believe a particular claim (also without any outside influence), it doesn’t matter how crazy the particular claim is, those ideas will more likely make perfect sense to you in your own head. If you’ve been raised to accept evolution, for example, then the book of Genesis will seem utterly insane, and vice versa. Childhood indoctrination can lead to your sights being tilted way off-centre. We should believe in, or rather accept, whatever the evidence suggests, no matter how intuitive or counter-intuitive that evidence might be. Don’t just settle for what feels right to you, because the truth doesn’t care how you were raised.
