[25 - 11] On Brussels Journal: Astronomy in Prehistoric Europe.
[23 - 11] Two FFs today. First, A tentative piece as preparation for a more complete essay: The Coming Crash.
I get the feeling that tensions are building up and that something big is going to happen within the coming generation, probably within the next five to ten years. Since I have been writing about geology lately I will use an analogy from plate tectonics: The tectonic plates of the Western world are now about to make a big move.Second, part three of A History of Geology and Planetary Science is up at Atlas Shrugs.
[18 - 11] On Brussels Journal: The Legend of the Middle Ages.
It is true that some ancient Greek texts were reintroduced to the West via Arabic, sometimes passing via Syriac or Hebrew along the way, but these were usually based, in the end, on Byzantine originals. The permanent recovery of Greco-Roman learning and literature was undertaken as a direct transmission from Greek, Orthodox Christians to Western, Latin Christians.[ 8 - 11] On Gates of Vienna Fjordman has a short comment on the Fort Hood Sudden Jihad Syndrome shooting: Dying Not to Discriminate.

[ 3 - 11] On Brussels Journal: The Cold War Never Ended.
It is now almost twenty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War. But did it really end, and did we win it? Look at the situation in Europe today, where many of the former Communist countries in the eastern half of Europe are freer and safer than many of those in the western half of Europe. Instead of an Iron Curtain we now have an Iron Veil of Multiculturalism, and Western Europe is on the wrong side of it this time around. Did we trade the USSR for the EUSSR? If we really "beat" Marxism, how come Marxists and Leftists of all stripes virtually control Western media and academia a generation later, and why does the USA have a Marxist-inspired President Obama?[ 2 - 11] On Gates of Vienna: IQ and Warfare
Islam is a very simple, even primitive, creed, but as such it can ironically carry certain advantages. From a strictly evolutionary point of view, if Islam didn’t enjoy any advantages it wouldn’t have become as large as it has. Muslims are absolutely convinced about the justness of their cause and the fact that they literally have a God-given right to conquer other peoples. They have no moral qualms whatsoever about doing so. In contrast, the modern West is full of self-doubt.
