Bloodtype_photo1Here’s a very interesting and informative article about blood types (e.g. A, B, AB, O, etc) that does a really good job explaining the science behind ABO blood types. Author Carl Zimmer gives a brief history of the discovery of human blood types, including many draconian experiments such as transfusing animal blood and even milk into humans. These growing pains killed a lot of people before science began to get a grasp on how our blood actually works. Scientists and physicians readily admit they still don’t truly understand our blood types, their purpose or why they evolved, but we are finding patterns, disease susceptibilities and resistances, and other quirks inherited by different types of blood.

Bad News for Bigfoot Believers

↳ Posted on July 12th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Bigfoot+believer+shares+hairs+3Another blow to the credibility of conspiracy theorists claims of the existence of the elusive Bigfoot has come from a prestigious university across the Atlantic. Oxford University’s Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics and expert in ancient human DNA, gathered dozens of fur and hair samples from cryptozoologists from around the world. It took the geneticist over a year to acquire 36 hair samples from as far away as Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Russia and the US. Read more…

Church-canadaOur friendly northern neighbor is often touted by American liberals for their free universal health-care and left-leaning tendencies. What they constantly forget to mention is that the country they claim to be so perfect also lacks the “separation of church and state” that they so passionately profess their love with.  Not only is their no implied legal separation, but their constitution appoints their government as an official sponsor of the Church of England, and therefor it’s child, the Anglican Church of Canada. Their country’s Charter of Rights and Constitution explicitly states “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” Their Head of State, the British Monarch, is also the Head of the Church of England and official “Defender of the Faith.” Read more…

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality

Posted on January 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

14137_large_net_neutralityAs a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.

A Brief History of Obama’s Biggest Constitutional Flops

Posted on February 23rd, 2014 by Ben Spera

Obama_robertsReason Magazine published an article last week reviewing all of President Obama’s failures before U.S. courts. It’s an impressively extensive list for a man who claims to be an expert on American constitutional law. Many of his administration’s arguments fail to persuade even the most liberal judges, including those appointed by his own administration. He can’t even get the support of many judges he put on the bench. Now, that shows you just how ridiculous many of his administration’s positions really are.
