I’m a character in a book and the book is free!

I’m a character in a book and the book is free!

I started this project with the intention of being anonymous.  I don’t know why, it just seemed like a good idea at the time.  I’ve become less anonymous as time has gone on.  I’ve become Daniel rather than just Chaostica and I’ve mentioned Eve by name.  My friends, of course, know who I am.  And since I started the Anti-Anti-Vaccine Campaign (here, here and here) my full name has appeared because all of that is...

Once a beach ball. Now a mere football.

Once a beach ball. Now a mere football.

  Depending on your persuasion it could be a soccer ball, a gridiron ball but I’m actually thinking of an Aussie Rules ball.  I don’t follow Aussie Rules.  They probably have a name for their ball that isn’t just “football”, but I don’t know it.  And I’m not about to ask Dr. Google.  At least not today.  The point being that it is no longer a beach ball and no longer a basketball. This morning...

One day wonder

One day wonder

  There is an immediacy to the internet; at least that’s true in social media.  Things happen, sometimes for completely mysterious reasons, then they are over.  Last week was an interesting time for me in cyberspace. Last Tuesday this blog got 938 hits.  For some sites that’s a small number, but not this one.  I only started blogging a couple of months ago, I’ve been quite tentative and irregular, I don’t have...

And then there was Mercola…

And then there was Mercola…

Natural News isn’t the only website that attacks science and reason on a regular basis. They are legion.  I could provide long lists, but I won’t. The site that appears most often as “evidence” for questionable health claims is mercola.com.  Dr. Joseph Mercola is not as vile as Mike Adams of Natural News, but he’s very much an anti-science, anti-health and pro making-things-up-for-money kind of guy.  When I...

Natural News is despicable

Natural News is despicable

Natural News is a website put together by someone by the name of Mike Adams who calls himself the Health Ranger. It is very popular.  I see references to Natural News stories, usually implausible and often ridiculous, on Facebook on a regular basis.  It is often used by anti-vaccine crazies to back up their claims.   According to rationalwiki.org “Adams is a flat-out opponent of modern medicine and opposes any medication or doctor...

Obsession. Grand or otherwise.

Obsession.  Grand or otherwise.

  In 1985 I got obsessed.  My obsession was the Macintosh computer I’d bought and getting it to do things that I wanted it to do.  My idea was to get a computer to help my business, and I tried hard to make that happen, with little success.  The problem was that it was a Macintosh computer and it was 1985.  The Mac hadn’t been around long and didn’t do very much.  It was little more than a toy at that point; a very...
