Climbing Mount Agenda Without a Rope



Darwin and Dawkins Dilemma: Climbing Mt. Improbable

Global-warming theory and the eugenics precedent
Heard on the street: “I am a working scientist with a mortgage and family to support. I am paid to conduct research into Evolution. Who will pay me to conduct research into Intelligent Design?” Filed under “Follow the money”. The article below makes a similar point about eugenics “research” in the past and global warming “research” today.
Atheistic Fundamentalism: Ridicule Them into Unbelief!
Yeah like that'll work. Mock me all ya want, punks. BTW I have seen the identical shit expounded on at other blogs we used to visit, obviously taking their cues directly from Biggus Dickus the Zoological Meme Meister himself:
Anyone who doubts the evangelistic nature of certain fundamentalist atheists ought to pay attention to the musings of Richard Dawkins on his own website. This from a comment (comment #16) he wrote to a post by Jerry Coyne at RichardDawkins.net earlier this year:

"Michael Shermer, Michael Ruse, Eugenie Scott and others are probably right that contemptuous ridicule is not an expedient way to change the minds of those who are deeply religious. But I think we should probably abandon the irremediably religious precisely because that is what they are – irremediable. I am more interested in the fence-sitters who haven’t really considered the question very long or very carefully. And I think that they are likely to be swayed by a display of naked contempt. Nobody likes to be laughed at. Nobody wants to be the butt of contempt"

And so Dawkins advocates the use of ridicule and belittlement. How is this unlike a political party, fearing defeat on some policy debate, issuing a talking-points bulletin encouraging members to just make fun of the other side. Would anyone take such an approach seriously? Where I come from, such tactics are considered clear indicators of a lack of meaningful persuasive argument: “If I can’t rationally convince you, I’ll bludgeon you into agreeing with me using mockery and derision.”
Over the years, Scott has found her fight to be much less about science and more about politics

"INTOLERANCE AND THE POLITICIZATION OF SCIENCE AT THE SMITHSONIAN ~ SMITHSONIAN'S TOP OFFICIALS PERMIT THE DEMOTION & HARASSMENT OF SCIENTISTS SKEPTICAL OF DARWINIAN EVOLUTION"
Galton proposed a replacement for traditional religious dogma, the new field (with a name he coined) of eugenics,
which he defined as “the study of agencies under social control that may improve or impair the racial qualities of future generations, whether physically or mentally.” He proposed that after eugenics first gains acceptance as an academic matter and then as a practical matter, that it should enter a third and final stage:

"It must be introduced into the national consciousness as a new religion."
"Man is becoming God. Those who see in national socialism nothing more than a political movement know scarcely anything of it. It is more even than a religion. It is the will to create mankind anew".

WTF is World Evolutionary Humanism, & Why Should You Care?


Religion is a Product of Evolution, You Snake Handling Moron !


The "Negro Project" & Scientific Racism

Margaret Sanger would have loved Barack Obama!
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
BEHOLD! Thus spaketh the Obamassiah, 2006:
Does he even know he is a useful idiot? I think not.
Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal, rather than religion-specific, values. It requires that their proposals be subject to argument, and amenable to reason. I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God’s will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.
Obama: Abortion is a 'health benefit'

Rehabilitating Eugenics
Princeton U ~ 2005
Instead, devotees of the new eugenics invoke the languages of choice and prevention. “Children of choice,” “Redesigning Humans, “Remaking Eden,” – these are just a few of the book titles by advocates of the new eugenics. Supporters of the new eugenics frequently invoke freedom as the animating influence behind their support for the new eugenics (one recent book title is “Liberation Biology”).

But it is choice and prevention that actually guide them. Choice and prevention, of course, are not inconsistent with the principles of a modern liberal democracy, and both are frequently invoked as rationales for a range of decisions we make as a society – about everything from abortion to terrorism. Both, however, suffer from serious weaknesses as guiding philosophies for our new genetic age.

The earlier incarnation of eugenics reached its logical conclusion in the horrific policies of fascist Germany. But the new incarnation of eugenics is thriving in the societies where it first flourished in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century– liberal democracies.
Why?

Exploring this question requires two things: First, debunking the myth, still embraced by many, that eugenics and liberal democracy are incompatible. History shows us how well suited they are. The fact that liberal democracies, including our own, now have in place protections against the kind of state-sponsored eugenics popular in the early twentieth century does not mean we have escaped the siren song of eugenics. It merely means that we have found new ways to justify our ineradicable desire to improve ourselves. Second, we must trace the three pathways by which eugenics has been rehabilitated: through science, politics, and culture. In doing so we can begin to understand why an increasing number of Americans believe that the new eugenics is inevitable, and why it is no longer shocking to ask the question: must eugenics be a dirty word?

REASON ONLINE: Science Fiction 'Czar': The disturbing intellectual record of Obama's "Science Czar"
Dr. John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy—better known as the "science czar"—has been a longtime prophet of environmental catastrophes. Never discouraged but never right.

And thanks to resourceful bloggers, you can read excerpts from a hard-to-find book co-authored by Holdren in the late 1970s, called Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, online. In it, you will find the czar wading into some unpleasant talk about mass sterilizations and abortions.

It's not surprising. Holdren spent the '70s boogying down to the vibes of an imaginary population catastrophe and global cooling. He also participated in the famous wager between scientist Paul Ehrlich, the now-discredited Population Bomb theorist (and co-author of Ecoscience), and economist Julian Simon, who believed human ingenuity would overcome demand.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a question of eugenics
If Ginsburg does see eugenic culling as a compelling state interest, she'd be in fine company on the court. Oliver Wendell Holmes was a passionate believer in such things. In 1915, Holmes wrote in the Illinois Law Review that the "starting point for an ideal for the law" should be the "coordinated human effort ... to build a race."

Republican Senator Jim DeMint says that he is troubled by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor after she told him she had "never thought about" the rights of the unborn child."When I asked if an unborn child has any rights whatsoever, I was surprised that she said she had never thought about it," said DeMint in a statement. "This is not just a question about abortion, but about the respect due to human life at all stages, and I hope this is cleared up in her hearings."
N.C. to dedicate marker to eugenics program
According to the So Smarts none of this ever happened though. So STFU!
Raleigh, N.C. — State officials are dedicating a historical marker to remember the forced sterilization program that affected thousands of people in North Carolina. The North Carolina Highway Historical Marker will be dedicated Monday at the North Carolina Community Colleges building in Raleigh. Social reformers advocated for eugenics programs a century ago as a way to cleanse society of the mentally handicapped and mentally ill. North Carolina adopted its program in 1929 and aggressively continued the program after World War II, targeting the program at the poor. About 7,600 people were sterilized between 1929 and 1975. A state House panel has recommended that the state give $20,000 to victims of the eugenics program.
Progressive Genocide
Less than 100 years ago, America's finest minds were convinced the nation was threatened by sexually insatiable female morons. A new history of the eugenics movement sheds light on a bizarre chapter in U.S. history.

Methodists apologize for loving death
“The United Methodist General Conference formally apologizes for Methodist leaders and Methodist bodies who in the past supported eugenics as sound science and sound theology. We lament the ways eugenics was used to justify the sterilization of persons deemed less worthy. We lament that Methodist support of eugenics policies was used to keep persons of different races from marrying and forming legally recognized families. We are especially grieved that the politics of eugenics led to the extermination of millions of people by the Nazi government and continues today as ‘ethnic cleansing’ around the world.”

The Release of the Destruction of Life Devoid of Value

(Life Unworthy of Life). Its measurement and form.
By Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche, 1922
The little booklet only including 60 pages and first published in 1920, was of an outstanding importance for the discussion of "euthanasia", even after the beginning of the "Third Reich". With his juridical arguments in support of the killing of "life devoid of value", which clearly opposed all preceding positions, Prof. Dr. jur. Dr. phil. Karl Binding (1841-1920), a highly respected penal law expert, triggered off an avalanche. In his part of the booklet, Dr. med. Alfred Hoche, a professor in psychiatry from Freiburg, provided a cost-benefit analysis regarding psychiatric care and described sick and disabled people as "people with deficits", "elements of minor value" ,"mentally dead" and "ballast existences". On the basis of a regulated procedure of applications and after the examination by a commission consisting of two physicians and a legal practitioner, both authors requested the painless killing of "incurably" sick persons against their will. They especially referred to inmates of "fools homes" and to cases without hope in "mental homes".

American Eugenics Society Records
“Well, eugenics was a very fashionable science in the 1930s and nowadays it isn’t. Post Hitler there are people who say not only that eugenics is morally wrong but also that it doesn’t work scientifically. That is bollocks. It works with horses, cows and pigs and ducks. Of course it would work with humans. It’s quite another matter to say that it would be a good thing to do. It comes down to a moral and political choice. Just as the H-bomb. As for only giving examples of bad religion, that is not what I wanted to do even if I seem to have done it. I think I could have been accused of that not so much in the book but in the television programme I did for Channel 4 called The Root of All Evil. But a television programme does not have a single author. It was a kind of ‘over my dead body’ title, for example.”

In short, eugenics is the applied science of Darwinism (social darwinisim).The Malthusian catastrophe where the lower class all die and the well-to-do survive, became the inspiration for eugenics. The modern eugenics movement started in the United states in the late 1800’s and continues under different names today. The original eugenics movement eventually was promoted in Germany, and Hitler was so inspired by the Americans he created his own genocide based on the laws of eugenics. This would have been the ultimate goal of the eugenicists, but they failed. The eugenics operations in the us changed their names. Today they are called ‘population control, or planned parenthood, or one child policy. and screening for unborn children has begun to determine their genetic standing. Billions of dollars are being poured into the population control agenda today. The old money of the Rockefeller blending with the new money of Gates, Buffet and others.

I don't suppose there is any point in reminding you, Babba, that only a minority of atheists even know what "eugenics" is, never mind support it. Objectivist atheists such as myself despise it. But you have your GOD on your side, and if I don't believe in HIM, what good is my word on anything?

Great post.

And, for the record, I take it your point is that

1)One of the first people to propose Eugenics was Darwin's cousin Frank Galton, and he proposed such based upon his understanding of Darwinistic theory

2) Eugenics as a movement has often been supported by appeals to Social Darwinistic thinking (It must be noted that Darwin himself was a Descriptive Scientist, not a Prescriptive Philosopher - others took his theories and used them in a Prescriptive manner.)

3) Eugenics is a movement which has mutated, not died. It's new mutations tend to deal with Genetic issues, and concerns with not having "disabled" children of various sorts. It's more of a "Brave New World" approach, and we could never truly be aware of the long-term consequences of such an approach.

3) Ezekiel Emanuel, who advocates the end of the Hippocratic Oath
4) Holdren - who has advocated forced abortions and the de-development of the United States

BabbaZee,

One thing the post did touch on was Marget Sanger's Racism and support for Eugenics. Something that is too often ignored by Historians. I appreciate that, its a good thing that there are people out there like you, who are willing to speak politically incorrect truths.

As for that new film, Darwin's Dilemma, it looks interesting, but judging by the add it looks like its going to be repeatedly saying, we don't know how this could have been done by naturalistic means, therefor God did it. That's not exactly scientific. The argument from irreducible complexity has been debunked multiple times. However if it is going to be arguing for guided evolution, it will still be arguing for evolution.

Evolution and a belief in God are not incompatible as some people believe. The problem of curse is how do you prove that God was the driving force behind the process. Once science starts using Miracles, of any kind to explain something, it ceases to be science. For a theory to be scientific, if must be testable, and it must be falsifiable. There is no way to disprove the claim that God did it. Therefor if God exists, science will still never be able to prove that he exists.

Obama is just one and may not be, need not be the leader

Every one of these guys can have Wesley Mouch branded on his forehead and just make canned speeches out of that book and would sound and conduct themselves in an identical fashion to their real life selves.

Either we are going to all end up institutionalized for nanny reeeducation and gentle shushing via haldol and other happy juice for 'our own good' or we are going to find ourselves celebrating the death of the MSM and its sycophantic rectothinking Olberodonnell elitist mentally tortured losers and all their leftist progressive social GOONS the way the we saw the germans TEARING DOWN THE FUCKING BERLIN WALL.

Here, I will reduce the argument of Evolution vs. Creationism/Intelligent Design.

It is this:

Uncaused First Cause vs. An Infinite Regess of Causes (To Which There Was No Beginning).

This is not an argument of logic. It is, by definition an argument of Faith.

Perhaps I'm just too stupid to get it.

I spend most of my time studying and thinking about the global jihad, and almost none at all worrying about perceived 'threats' arising from atheism (which I would rank well below other concerns such as second-hand smoke, driving while intoxicated, or polar bears with not quite enough ice to stand on).

Atheism is not like a three legged stool whereby you can simply knock out a leg and it topples over for lack of support. Atheism easily thrives and continues to grow worldwide despite repeated attempts by 'theists' to simply boot it over with a swift kick, ala Hitler's rotted stump metaphor.

It survives because it is the truth. It survives for the very same reasons that all theists are essentially 99.9% atheists themselves, at least in the sense of their own personal rejection of ALL THE OTHER PROPOSED GODS, besides their own, that other people have put forward in the history of humanity.

You may knock out a leg or even three by pointing out the curious moral flaws, or cognitive defects, or even the misdeeds of this or that person who may or may not have played a role in planting some early seeds of atheist reasoning. But atheism isn't a stool. It's more like a 'trillipede'.

I might have said centipede or millipede but then you might be inclined to conflate it with a very elaborate stool instead.

An atheist such as myself sees the beauty of evolution in every blade of grass and in the wing of every dragon fly. Also in the pain of a wisdom tooth coming in along a jawbone that is no longer of sufficiently length.

Do you actually suppose your personal affinity for just ONE particular god, out of the many, many that have been proposed somehow places you closer to the camp of the Jihadist (for his monotheism) than to me for my atheism?

I reject Islam because it says "believe or die". I reject numerous other religions because they say "believe or you can't be part of our happy club", or "believe because its good for you and everybody else"

I disagree. In my view, belief in after-lives and metaphysical places effectively cheapens this life and this place.

Anonymous,
Babba has already said it earlier in this comments thread. This is not about Atheism. It is about a larger agenda than that.

Neither Babba nor I have any problem with Atheists.

The problem is with the anti-Life/anti-human agenda that is at the core of the Socialist/Green paradigm.

Ultimately, if you haven't noticed, the Socialists and the Greens are always making laws which betray their contempt for the amount of humans on the planet Earth, the decisions humans make, the amount humans consume, how they choose to consume it, how much money humans should be allowed to keep, etc.

You say you fight the Jihad. Well, doesn't the above agenda sound familiar?

It's an anti-human agenda, and that is why people like Babba and I FIGHT THEM BOTH.

BECAUSE THEY ARE THE SAME THING.

Anyone who believes there is a Creator at all, and thinks they have a clue about the mind of the creator, and what he has in mind for this joint is out of their gourd by definition IMHO.

I would think that encompasses 99.95% of religious leaders. What can I say?

Belief in God is not the same as belief in any religious dogma, as a fella named Jefferson kept saying while they called him an atheist (to no avail)

If there is a god, then intelligent design is a possible THEOREM. PERIOD. Darwin might be 100% correct by virtue of this design as well.

Anyway, one cannot argue faith.

These things are all faith.

Faith is belief in the suspension of proof. One day science might point the way to the existence of a creator, but that day is not here.

Until then reasoned discussions about all this can be fascinating but no one can 'win' any argument, or even be said to advance one

It occurred to me that to say that you and I are de facto criticizing atheists with this argument is an unreasonable assumption.

We are, for instance, lumping Dawkins in with Obama, Holdren, Emanuel, and Van Jones, among others.

As far as I know, all of the above are religious people.

And, we also lump Islam in with the "anti-human agenda" which we oppose, and clearly, Islam is a religion.

And, I think you would agree, we would also lump the governing bodies of the more Liberal mainline churhes in with this anti-human agenda.

Are you aware that Richard Dawkins literally said, on the subject of Eugenics, "Who's to say Hitler wasn't right?"

Objectivists have a non-relativistic moral pov. Many atheists do not. Instead, they are proud of their relativism.

Witness the Chomsky/Singer video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzY0L2g1f64&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fibloga%2Eblogspot%2Ecom%2F2009%2F09%2Fclimbing%2Dmount%2Dagenda%2Dwithout%2Drope%2Ehtml&feature=player_embedded

(DICK) Dawkins goes much further when he states that "[i]t is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid, or insane (or wicked, but I'd rather not consider that)."

OK. Language check here for all you purple proles. This is a war for your BELIEF SYSTEM:

"to believe in evolution"

I want you to notice how the language in this so called "debate" is consistently posited as stated as above, that one must "BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION" or not BELIEVE IN evolution, and if one does not "BELIEVE" in evolution, one is an unhinged lunatic upon whom ridicule, derision and scorn must be heaped immediately.

Evolution is a partially described biological MECHANISM, it is not an a scientifically identifiable originating CAUSE. Science, taken as a school of thought, offers no identifiable originating cause.

"to believe in evolution"

This statement is more accurately then a statement of THEOLOGY or PHILOSOPHY, which both deal with BELIEFS and IDEAS, and not at all a statement of science, which purports itself loudly to deal purely with physical evidence and observable, provable processes only.

An observable, describable, working mechanism, biological or man made, is self evident as a mechanism. It either exists or does not exist, there is no call to "believe IN it " or no, it either is there and can be seen, described, and "proven", or not. I do not believe in my lungs, they are there, and they work, as evidenced by my continued breathing. They can be seen, described, and proven. My lungs are not the cause of my body. They are an obvious and observable operating mechanism contained within it.

What the Darvangelists are doing with language here is elevating a partially described MECHANISM (evolution) to the level of a fully blown CAUSE (GOD). They are deifying a PROCESS because they refuse to acknowledge, can not identify, and are, on some level ~ at war with the MAKER.

This is not a legitimate "debate". The terms and definitions it is being premised upon are entirely intellectually dishonest. This is insanity. This is classical idol worship. This is PROPAGANDA.

This is an all out war for the terms and definitions you, the spudniktariats, will use to define your reality in your brave new Glow Ballin' future. They want the control of the words in your mouth. He that owns your words, your terms and definitions, controls thought itself. Whether you believe in GOD or not, you can not allow this theft of thought to take place if you intend to stay free. Do not become their next useful idiot. Unfortunately, many have already evolved themselves into that regrettable position.

If science claims to want religion to stay the hell out of it's business then science would do well to stay the hell out of religion's business. Why should any scientists give a rat's ass what you BELIEVE? Because their end game is to own and direct what you believe, which has shit to do with science... but has all to do with power.

Perhaps I should have phrased what I said differently. I actually like Buddhism, and practice a form of Buddhist meditation. I also like many of Rand's ideas.

I would also classify myself as a fan (for lack of a better word) of Hinduism, though I believe that many of it's ideas are almost as anti-human as Islam.

I studied World Religions quite extensively in college. I love religions. However, I have never found anything to like about Islam, except for the small sect of Sufism.

Anyway, critically, what I don't like about Buddhism and Randism are as follows:

1) I don't like that Buddhism makes "Acceptance" the highest of virtues. And, to me, it is no wonder this has led, in general (along with Confucianism) to a Chinese culture which is dominated by Tradition and enforced homogeneity.

2) Rand made "Selfishness" her highest virtue (which is find as an Economic ideal), and even went so far as to criticize Altruism as dangerous. Her argument against Altruism smacks of Prescriptive Social Darwinism. I detest such ideas. And, I would ask everyone, if Altruism is such a bad idea then what do you think of all the Catholic and Jewish Hospitals around the world?

Here's Rand on Altruism:

http://ibloga.blogspot.com/2009/09/climbing-mount-agenda-without-rope.html

starting at the 4:00 minute mark.

Let it be made clear, altruism is not, traditionally, coerced in US society.

So, wtf is she attacking altruism for? She is attacking it as "duty". Well, who determines that it is duty.

Each individual.

There is nothing wrong with that.

Therefore, her attack is groundless.

People go to the churches and synagogues she so freely say she "scorns churches and the concept of God"?

People choose these things freely.

It is none of her business.

Sure, she is free to create and write and publish her ideas. That's fine by me. I even admire her will and most of her ideas.

But, she goes too far.

Most of all, she makes the worst of Philosophical errors, and that is she believes she can create a perfect Philosophical System.

That is an impossibility.

The only intellectually honest Philosophers in history were Friedrich Nietzsche and David Hume. Both admitted Philosophical Systems were impossible.

Altruism is an integral part of enlightened self interest - it makes us human as much as NOT CHEATING ON YOUR SPOUSE. Otherwise we become amoral animals.

Rand always seemed to me to welcome this part of animal behavior, and try to ignore that it likened us to them

But as you said in Churchillian fashion, Pasto, Objectivism sucks except for most everything else.

I still say she understood human nature far better than any other philosopher, and it is THAT which puts her system in close alliance with that articulated from 1775-1789. The Constitution and Declaration are observations of human nature. They observe and DEPEND on human weakness to succeed and be real.

The very fact that their work, their success, their direction is really among the muck and grit of what humans really are is lost sometimes in solipsoid rants (myself included) about the wonders of freedom, yadda yadda.

Hey I read everything Rand wrote until about 15 pages into Galt's interminable speech in Atlas Shrugged.

Then I picked it up after he finished. I think you either get it or not by that time.

Somehow anyone, being an ardent acolyte of anyone or anything makes my body hairs stand on end, which is why the whole Branden thing and her husband creeps me out in the extreme.

It wasn't just some wife swapping open marriage schtick, it was something really sick.

Sort of like Kos, MoveOn, Huffington and Soros.

In order to be that kind of acolyte some kind of self abnegation of moral self interest is involved and then next thing you know, in your hand is a metaphoric dixie cup with a purple drink

Reading a book by someone who sipped regularly just doesn't seem like the book under the pillow for me.

Now Herodotus .... Hey reading how the Persian leader tricked Harpagus into eating his own child, and set in motion the rise of Cyrus ... or reading how the hero of Marathon, Miltiades played both sides to stay alive and keep his city state from being pillaged .. much better, besides it's always a thrill to find out something new..like democracy was invented and brought to Athens because an out of control foreign policy by a wild and crazy Spartan King by accident over a gay lover's fight about an affair and supposed pawing that never occurred.

I have more research on Eurgenics and know how they integrated the Eugenics into the legislation without you ever knowing about it. I did a research project on this a few years ago.

I see overtones in the way health care is administered, and frankly, ran straight into the ugly demon last year. Eurgenics is not dead by any means, they renamed it and there are plenty of academics involved in perpetuating it.

It becamse a formal academic study in 1933 with the publication of the Encyclopdia of Social Sciences. I found a copy at Washington University. I found a lot at Washington University and in St. Louis, which has a rather dark history when it comes Eugenics.

I have a copy of "Fruit of the family Tree" - which should be required reading in every American History class - they should be teaching this as a component of American History -

These buzzards have been in a business a long time, influencing Congressional legislation, especially Newt Gingrich.

They built the Eugenics model and the bell curve algorithm into the FICO Score, so that "inferior" people will get use up all their money paying loan sharks and high interest, while white wealthy classes enjoy perpetual low interest and low costs.

And of course, they won't be able to afford health care, so they get sick and move on. FICO is a loan sharking scheme. MY husband and I got a copy of their internal white papers - my husband is a mathematician

They use a math model called "math magic" where they can manipulate the equation to give whatever result they want by deceiving the public on the statistical methods.

They change the parameters to lift white upper classes higher on the bell curve.

Notice nobody is blaming FICO for the economic collapse? FICO caused the economic collapse. All the corporations went on a credit-based balance sheet that eventually caved.

The credit based economy began with FICO in 1971. I would appreciate comments to my email shari74@gmail.com

The First Mrs. Grimaud,

I have a book called the Mismeasure Of Man, that debunks that stupid Bell Curve.

Damien: Regarding the "First Mrs. Grimaud" - (Sharon Tronsgard Grimaud Hodges), don't pay her no never mind..... She's a visitor here from planet WooHoo (population 1) and all the return flights have been cancelled until further notice. As an act of kindness and goodwill, we've agreed to let her reside on this planet. - - Kindest regards, The People of Planet Earth
