Emotions are not universal

Darwin was an idealistic Christian.

Culture is GENETIC.

“Yet many languages also have words that English speakers might think of as “basic” emotions — love, hate, anger, fear, sadness, happiness. Early theories, influenced by Charles Darwin and pegged to shared biological structures in humans, suggest there are certain universal emotions that serve as the source material for all others, as primary colors might be blended to create many new shades.

Universalism is bullshit. All shades. Not All ___ is a derailment, attempt to enable, dismiss or deflect or simple result of a category error.

But just as later work has suggested that different cultures do not always categorize color in the same ways,

Different rods/cones plus evolution.

there’s a growing understanding that even those supposedly “primary” emotions may hold their own meanings and nuances in different cultures that aren’t directly translatable.

Apply Occam to this. People are not cogs, Rousseau! 

Language is also genetic. Really. This is known.

Preview of what they’ll “discover” next, trying to get ahead of the net?

Humanity, as we WEIRD individualists think of it, is also non-uniform throughout the species. Diversity aka variation exists, a scale of 0-100, if you will. Basically? Some races are crueler than others, simply put. Others less sadistic, even to their own people, animals, children, elderly etc. Science is catching up. We are not, as we’ll be told, dehumanising THEM, they dehumanise themselves, they hurt one another, what better treatment can WE expect?

Civilization is a combination of simple factors and conditions inc. IQ (organism and national), honesty (low cultural corruption*), genetic individualism, K-select breeding and rearing and finally, low sadism (antisociality in the population, little pathology, especially sexual sadism). When “high trust” is required historically (the current PC code for this) the West succeeds because of its low racial sadism (and resultant bias towards justice) and tendency to punish/cull predators (civil unrest) instead of reward with money, rape victims, goats, whatever. High culture is produced by ALL these factors, you can’t make exceptions for your own hedonism.

It looks like collectivism but it isn’t – it doesn’t hide personal responsibility or agency behind Muh Group Card (like the men who marry in China and are allowed to cheat, two-faced “duty”) or the need for virtue as The Other Guy’s Problem. It isn’t cruel or cowardly in secret, it’s openly FAIR. Cruelty is the key sign of an inferior mind.

The SJWs don’t name me for that reason. The science is coming out.

m-m-m-muh appeal to authority?

*So neither China nor Russia will run jack shit. They cannot innovate in a vacuum. The kitten-crushers of Japan and China make shitty parents and military generals. Honour culture isn’t a parade, it’s bravery. It’s sacrifice.

Science says faith is healthier

Results

Mortality was 28.1% (475/1691) in the intervention group and 30.2% (514/1702) in the control group (P for difference=0.4). Length of stay in hospital and duration of fever were significantly shorter in the intervention group than in the control group (P=0.01 and P=0.04, respectively).

Conclusions

Remote, retroactive intercessory prayer said for a group is associated with a shorter stay in hospital and shorter duration of fever in patients with a bloodstream infection and should be considered for use in clinical practice.

I guess atheists need to encourage faith because science tells you there are benefits.

You can’t argue with science.

The benefits of faith (but not prayer) applies to other monotheistic religions too

There was a strong linear association between Quran memorization and hypertension, diabetes, and depression indicating that those who had memorized a larger portion of the Quran were less likely to have one of these chronic diseases. Future studies should explore the potential health benefits of Quran memorization and the underlying mechanisms.

Even monkeys prayed for heal faster.

AKA no placebo effect.

Living in a Christian society has benefits.

Atheist tax?

This study was performed to examine the effects of intercessory prayer (IP) on wound healing and related physiological and behavioral factors in nonhuman primates. Twenty-two bush babies (Otolemur garnettii) with chronic self-injurious behavior (SIB) were stratified by wound severity and matched by total wound area. The animals were then randomized to IP and L-tryptophan or L-tryptophan only for treatment of SIB and related wounds. The IP intervention was conducted in a double-blind, randomized manner. Prayer was conducted daily for 4 weeks. Initiation of prayer was coincident with the first day of L-tryptophan administration. Physiological and behavioral variables were assessed at baseline and end of study. Following IP/L-tryptophan treatment, prayer-group animals had a reduction in wound size compared to non-prayer animals (P=.028). Prayer-group animals had a greater increase in red blood cells (P=.006), hemoglobin (P=.01), and hematocrit (P=.018); a greater reduction in both mean corpuscular hemoglobin (P=.023) and corpuscular volume (P=.008); and a reduction in wound grooming (P=.01) and total grooming behaviors (P=.04) than non-prayer-group animals. The results of this study are consistent with prior human trials of IP effectiveness, but suggest IP-induced health improvements may be independent of confounds associated with human participants. Findings may provide direction for study of the mechanisms of IP-induced health improvements in both human and animal models.

Christians iz magic?

sheeeeeet

I need to pray for a relative to win the lotto.

You may not care about Cultural Marxists.

They certainly feel entitled to control you.

Nowadays, everyone feels entitled to social approval.

I’ve had strangers brag to me about their sexual conquests and, when met with repulsion, they complained.*

Only your doctor needs to know your bodily functions, I don’t want to picture it.

9/10, they only sleep around to signal about it.

We encourage or discourage degeneracy in our everyday lives.

Most commonly with SPEECH.

How often do you sing a rap song without knowing?

Identification is required for behaviourism control.

*But they never mentioned it again and started sleeping around less, questioning it.

The book Nudge might explain why.

I’ve been researching this, I’d say

1. rising food prices, biggest one historically (riots)
2. everyone is quiet, too quiet (plotting)
3. sudden stock market dips (rich money leaving) that average men insist is temporary
4. full airports
5. hospital cancellations plus “brown outs” of electricity, blamed on old power lines
6. suspicious roadworks and diversions (some placed by robbers)
7. more police walking around, groups of immigrants packed together scouting
8. shops randomly closing early
9. ATMs malfunctioning, blamed on computer bugs
10. petrol or water shortage, blamed on global warming or workers
