About Schlafly blogsI am Roger Schlafly. (There is only one.) I write a couple of blogs which are described below. I also write an anonymous blog with more personal comments, but you'll have to find that on your own. My contact page is here.
About Dark BuzzYou may have heard about Dark Matter. The known universe is made up of quarks, leptons, and bosons, but it is believed that other mysterious particles constitute a dark matter that is a much greater portion of the masses of the galaxies. The dark matter is in addition to the black holes that result when a large star collapses into a spacetime singularity, and the giant black holes that gobble up stars at galaxy centers. There is also Dark Energy, the unknown force that permeates the entire universe and is accelerating its expansion. There may also be Dark fluid and Dark flow.
This is my personal blog, and it is about Dark Buzz. There are ideas and information that are essential to understanding our world, and yet they are ignored by the mainstream media. I try to expose some of them.
I comment mostly on science stories. I post links to stories I find interesting or surprising, or that I am skeptical about. I like to see hard evidence for scientific results. I am particularly skeptical about efforts to use science to promote left-wing political causes.
Lately, I've been investigating some of the great paradigm shifts in the history of science. I have come to believe that many of them are seriously misrepresented in the textbooks.
I am a mathematician, cryptologist, and patent agent. I am not a lawyer. My point of view is that of someone who believes in traditional American liberties and values. My favorite tools for acquiring knowledge are those of logic and the hard sciences.
About Singular ValuesI am a mathematician, and this is my blog. When mathematicians look at the world, they model everything in terms of mathematically constructed spaces that are locally defined by multiple parameters. Transformations are approximated by tangential matrices, and a matrix is analyzed by decomposing it into its singular values.
Besides numerical values, there are also the values that represent the qualities or beliefs that people consider important, such as loyalty and respect. Some values are singularly important, and yet are commonly overlooked. One example is the American Patriarchy. I defend it here.
FramesI use invisible frames to host these blogs, which is confusing to some people because the archives may be shown unframed and the URLs are not what you might expect. If you prefer, you can just select the "unframed" links in the margin to remove the frames.
