Another Theory of Relativity

by: Malcolm A. Kline, November 06, 2007

Relativists, beware. The professors who tell you that “Everything is relative” probably fail to relate how destructive an idea that is. In an interview with Hillsdale College’s Imprimis magazine, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas noted “the connection between relativism, nihilism, and Naziism.”

“The common idea that you can do whatever you want to do, because truth and morality are relative, leads to the idea that if you are powerful enough, you can kill people because of their race or faith,” Justice Thomas explains. “So ask your relativist friends sometime: What is to keep me from getting a gang of people together and beating the hell out of you because I think you deserve to be beaten?”

It might be noted that this relativism is older than Einstein’s TOR by a couple decades or more.

I like Kelly Bundy’s Theory of Relativity.

Mom and Dad are my relatives, therefore I am.

“Too many people think that life and liberty are about their frivolous pleasures,” the Justice [Clarence Thomas] says. “There is more to life.”

Maybe these are the words that should be engraved in stone over the doorway of every courthouse.

I like the one I made up back in college (I did!) about the theory of relativity:

Time goes slower when your relatives are visiting.

Some can try to apply physics to to the human to his emotional, political and spiritual realm. Such manipulation leads to de-evolution. Man is put into a box. His creativity is erased, his individualism is diminished and his self respect is disolved.

Ask any of these relativists if they think polygamy and marrying cousins is just as “valid a lifestyle” as monogamy and outlawing incest.

I do it as often as possible and they do not believe those things go on, so bookmark the site in my tag line. Hundreds of scientific articles referenced, most by Arab researchers.

It has been declared not allowed by all impartial rational persons.

Even the Theory of Relativity is not that relative. It starts with the proposition that the speed of light (In a vacuum) is an ABSOLUTE constant.
