I am relieved to learn that my prior observations here on Best Thinking that Wikipedia’s paid personal agenda editors are operating throughout the entire Wikipedia encyclopaedia to subvert the truth and bury annoying and uncomfortable dis-confirming facts for the “majority view” has been firmly confirmed by the research of other academics. Please view Sharyl Attkisson’s “Bombshell” Ted Talk...  Read More

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court left in place a strict voter identification law in Texas. Across the nation, Texas and 14 other states will have strengthened voter ID laws for the first time in a presidential election, the New York Times reported Monday. These discriminatory laws disproportionately affect students and minorities, interfering with voter turnout and reshaping races. These laws...  Read More

Last week, former House speaker John Boehner called Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.” Donald Trump calls the junior senator from Texas “Lyin’ Ted Cruz.” When Cruz formed an alliance with fellow presidential candidate John Kasich and then went back on his word, a Kasich aide tweeted, “I can’t stand liars.” Cruz lied about Ben Carson, deliberately harming Carson’s campaign by claiming Carson had...  Read More

Last week in our weekly blog post we talked about what the TLS Continuum was, however I left out of the discussion a valuable point about what is missing from most continuous process improvement efforts. That missing element is critical thinking. Hey I get it, it is just not you. Our next generation can’t critically think either. The base of the TLS Continuum is critical thinking so it is...  Read More

I am extremely flattered to read about my exploits in mythbusting have been rather well covered in the news today. Watch out Darwin scholars, you are not fooling the press much longer. Your pseudo scholarship is currently under international press scrutiny, along with coming to the notice of the dreaded "King of the Meta Skeptics". Science journalist Daniel Engbar - writing on the Five...  Read More

Tuesday night, in front of a national audience and after powering to victory in five primary states, Donald Trump had this to say: “Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5% of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the women’s card, and the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her.” Behind him on stage, Gov. Chris Christie’s wife, Mary Pat, could be seen rolling...  Read More

We’ve all heard that to get a good job, you need to get a good education. Students have been sold that line for decades and, in pursuit of that pearl of great price, they have piled up dangerous amounts of debt. Part of the reason is that college costs have risen obscenely and public institutions have abandoned their mission to provide affordable education for all. Just for one example of how...  Read More

When the Scottish Journalist Michael Alexander of The Courier newspaper in Scotland asked Dr Sagan - Editor of the respected Polish philosophy of science journal "Philosophical Aspects of Origin" - if he knew why the esteemed Darwin scholar, Dr John van Wyhe, resigned from the Journal's Expert Advisory Board in the wake of the publication of my peer reviewed article (Sutton 2016) - that...  Read More

On Sunday, April 24, the world marked the 101st anniversary of the Armenian genocide. Last year, Pope Francis called the senseless massacre of Armenians “the first genocide of the 20th century.” Governments of 29 countries and 44 U.S. states recognize as genocide the systematic slaughter and deportation of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks from 1915 to 1923. While campaigning for president in 2008,...  Read More

The Journey Continues This week I will complete the second round of my Advanced Leadership program. We call it Advanced because we have screened the participants to be sure that they have already been exposed to concepts like setting expectations, giving feedback, and other fundamental requirements of managing others. We are trying to focus on concepts that are a little less crisp like ...  Read More

My Dear honest Darwinist, I don't know how to tell you this. But I feel you should know that we've seen him doing it, and the letters between them. What he read and then wrote proves he lied about another. He's been cheating on you, for 156 years! He has a "child" by this other, Matthew, person: Darwin's 100 per cent proven lies are published in a peer reviewed science journal: ...  Read More

'Democracy Spring' Anti-Big-Money Demonstrations Were Deeply Misguided. Ralph Benko Several thousand people, a thousand to get arrested, came to the Capitol in April. Their cause: to get Big Money out of politics. It made for good street theater. It got them a decent amount of news coverage, and probably donations. Although the protestors may have been full of good intentions they are...  Read More

I got into a discussion in the past days over the use of acronyms. The comment was passed that nobody understands acronyms so why use them. So for you who are reading this blog let me give to the basics of the TLS Continuum. The letters TLS stand for the three components of the continuum. The letter T stands for the Theory of Constraints. Created by Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt in his book “ The Goal” ,...  Read More

I was informed by confidential reliable inside sources in an email yesterday that possible “Darwin Industry” political concerns about Dr John van Wyhe’s role on the Expert Advisory Board of the philosophy of science journal that published my peer-reviewed article on Charles Darwin’s proven serial lying about the pre-1858 readership of Patrick Matthew’s original ideas on natural selection, are...  Read More

On the day after the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed a joint session of Congress, calling that fateful Sunday “a date which will live in infamy.” Shortly thereafter, Congress formally declared war on the Empire of Japan, officially bringing the United States into World War II. About 127,000 Japanese Americans lived in the...  Read More

Suppose that you were tasked to give a series of speeches to persuade a group of people that you were like them, that you understood their concerns, hopes dreams and ambitions, but you knew they were not amenable to "high-flown" rhetoric; they were easily distracted, and were to impatient to follow a careful delineation of a coherent and cohesive vision... Would you speak with your audiences' in...  Read More

It is likely that most people think “materialism” is the love and desire for material things, and as those things which attend to material goods e.g., money, power, influence etc. Such may describe the nuts-n-bolts of materialism, once the world had sufficiently assimilated - and synthesized - its tenets with their erstwhile (Judeo-Christian) view of reality…The civilized world is encouraged in...  Read More

It is very, very silly for anyone to claim that it is not the language of science to claim that something can be 100 per cent proven. Because I have just 100 per cent proven to you that you have just read the word proven. The lesson here is: Do not confuse the language a rational person uses to describe what published words they just read on a page or screen with that used by a scientist to...  Read More
