So much bullshit, emotionalism, and conservative spin from this fake "university". Firstly, the problem in the world isn't one of lack of food, since there is an overabundance, but one of food waste and inadequate distribution. Secondly, yes, Monsanto isn't a weapons manufacturer but a chemical company, and NOT a "seed company." And smart people know that controlling the food supply is the ultimate weapon. They do manufacture seeds to withstand their herbicides and pesticides (think Roundup) which have increased NOT decreased since the advent of GMOs. The recombinant GM hormone used in rBST (or rBGH) used to increase the production of milk in cows, under the brand name, Posilac (Monsanto), was the cause of very painful mastitis, hoof problems, loss of fertility, etc. As a result the cows were inundated with antibiotics which therein went into the food supply. But Monsanto, Dow, DuPont, et al., are capital companies in capitalist societies, and it is the goal of these companies is to make money at every and any cost. Case in point, the many farmers and their families in India suffering, due in large part to the unethical practices by these companies. Now, the word "science" is used anymore as kind of a football. No matter which side you line up on you have, or seem to have, "science" on your side. This brings about Scientism: that old unshakable belief that empirical science has all the answers and can solve all problems; science in effect replaces God. But the scientists don't always agree, and they interpret the facts or statistics or studies differently (remember, facts are not truths), depending on their own worldview. After all, scientists are quite human with very big egos; so who is right? Maybe there is no problem with GMOs now. But what if in 30 years they discovered they were wrong and the science changes to accept that (since the science is always changing)? Shouldn't we always err on the side of caution, especially since the courts have deemed that these companies can hold patents to, and profit from, life? (Sorry for ramblin'.)

Thanks for sharing your knowledge, insight, & expertise through these videos. I don't know how, when, or even if, to approach a gallery (very scary). Do you have any videos that could help?

"It is often argued that a loving God would not allow His children to suffer. But, if you subscribe to Seneca’s position that without hardships man can be neither happy nor virtuous, and if you believe that God desires his children to be both righteous and joyful, the question then becomes, “How could a loving God not allow suffering in the world?” - +Art of Manliness 

Yes, suffering produces mettle ... "Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame..." - Romans:3-5
I’m a big fan of the classic 1960s-era television show, The Twilight Zone. Even when you can see the episodes’ famous twists coming a mile away, they’

The Y is a great place for community as well as physical development. My only complaint: for what they charge in member fees, they could at least provide adequate free WiFi throughout the facility, akin to the kind you find in most fast food chains and cafes.
