The existence has the force of the obvious. I am living from a consistency with a degree of being that has been given to me. And I could not have existed.

I am with my bones and muscles, but I am more, I’m someone, I’m a personal being, I’m unique among the millions of human beings that have existed, exist and will exist. And this being that I am in the beginning was a human, and not an amoeba, or monkey. Read the rest of this entry »

It is obvious that what we call politics usually is not a science able to demonstrate and verify its statements. I believe that everybody agree to call it as an art, since it depends on the ability of the person who exercises it. That art can be more or less attractive and convincing according to the skill and ability of persuasion of the politician, and the media that is used. Read the rest of this entry »

Some ideologies support postulates that collide with the reason. For example: If we want to find out what animal it is, considering that it has head of duck, walks like duck, and quacks (quack, quack…) like duck, then we rationally conclude that it will obviously be a duck. However, because of the influence of any fanatical ideology, there are people willing to question even the most obvious, and consider any hypothesis, except that it is a duck.

The myth of overpopulation

26 January, 2019

We have seen recently a big campaign in the media about the birth of the inhabitant seven million that was a Philippine girl, Danica Camacho who was born on 30 October 2011. This information was managed and propagated by the UN through its agency of the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), but its reliability is not very secure, because there is neither way of counting one by one the inhabitants on Earth nor controlling the deaths or dead caused by wars or abortions.
