Someone on my Twitter suggested for the FDA to declare J+J the "Dudes Only" vaccine, since the clotting only affected women.

And then print t-shirts that say "It Takes a Real Man to Handle This Johnson"

Maybe this could get some macho anti-vaxxer men off the fence and get vaccinated.

aren't there really two very different 'new bronco's?

low end on the escape platform, and the other on a truck platform?

You're right. Bronco Sport is based on the Escape platform. A cross over SUV with rugged looks. The Bronco and new Ranger will share the same truck platform. More off road capable and direct competitor with Jeep Wrangler.

State of America in my social media:

"Which shooting are you talking about?"

The most statistically significant shooting(s), murders where blacks murder at more than eight times the rate of the average American.  Those shootings.

If they keep the J&J out of circulation there's going to be quite a rush for the other two vaccines. As of yesterday 2/3 of the available shots to be scheduled were J&J. Combine a krimp in access (short term...) and the floodgates opening on the 16th, it's going to get interesting quickly.

I guess also that distribution for the vaccine might be overweighted in some Counties. Need a shot in OC? Depends.... maybe today, maybe another day. Out in Riverside and SB County? It's wide open. They seem to have cornered the market on excess vaccine shots.

When you say "hauling needs" would this be dirt, rocks, etc, or camping and kid stuff? A big Sequoia is truck based and has an ocean of room for stuff.

Not much news here about Rivian who will be delivering trucks soon. I've heard that some of Amazon's delivery trucks are sourced from Rivian.

sounds disastrous until you look at the actual number, instead of the percent change annualized.

on the order of 3k, up from 2k people moved from SF.

only 136k from all of CA, out of what 40M?
Is there any gated community coming in this area or larger homes 5 beds+
Anyone have thoughts on the area where these homes are going to be located in terms of proximity to 241 (right next door) and more of a fire hazard than other locations?  Is Cal Pac going to take the entire land for development or other developers are going to build?
Also anywhere else that will have new developments in the future? Thanks.

The other neighborhood to be developed in PS is near Altair, those will be larger homes, and possibly gated.

“Contrary to what most scientists write, the fossil record does not support the Darwinian theory of evolution because it is this theory which we use to interpret the fossil record. By doing so we are guilty of circular reasoning if we then say the fossil record supports this theory.”  (Dr. Ronald R. West)
“The evolutionary establishment fears creation science, because evolution itself crumbles when challenged by evidence. In the 1970s and 1980s, hundreds of public debates were arranged between evolutionary scientists and creation scientists. The latter scored resounding victories, with the result that, today, few evolutionists will debate. Isaac Asimov, Stephen Jay Gould, and the late Carl Sagan, while highly critical of creationism, all declined to debate.”  (Dr. James Perloff, Tornado in a Junkyard (1999), p. 241)

“I doubt if there is any single individual within the scientific community who could cope with the full range of [creationist] arguments without the help of an army of consultants in special fields.”  (David M. Raup, “Geology and Creation,” Bulletin of the Field Museum of Natural History, Vol. 54, March 1983, p. 18)
“I think in fifty years, Darwinian evolution will be gone from the science curriculum…I think people will look back on it and ask how anyone could, in their right mind, have believed this, because it’s so implausible when you look at the evidence.”  (Dr. Johnathan Wells, author of the book, “Icons of Evolution”)

“As we survey all the evidence, the thought insistently arises that some supernatural agency–or, rather, Agency–must be involved. Is it possible that suddenly, without intending to, we have stumbled upon scientific proof of the existence of a Supreme Being? Was it God who stepped in and so providentially crafted the cosmos for our benefit?”  (Astronomer George Greenstein, “The Symbiotic Universe,” page 27)
“Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, one with the very delicate balance needed to provide exactly the conditions required to permit life, and one which has an underlying (one might say “supernatural”) plan.”  (Nobel laureate Arno Penzias, “Cosmos, Bios, and Theos,” page 83)
“Human DNA contains more organized information than the Encyclopedia Britannica. If the full text of the encyclopedia were to arrive in computer code from outer space, most people would regard this as proof of the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence. But when seen in nature, it is explained as the workings of random forces.”  (George Sim Johnson “Did Darwin Get it Right?” The Wall Street Journal, October 15, 1999)
“The vast mysteries of the universe should only confirm our belief in the certainty of its Creator. I find it as difficult to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science.”  (Werner von Braun, father of space science, “Gone Bananas,” World September 7, 2002)
“Faith does not imply a closed, but an open mind. Quite the opposite of blindness, faith appreciates the vast spiritual realities that materialists overlook by getting trapped in the purely physical.”  (Sir John Templeton “the Humble Approach,” page 115)
“It is hard to resist the impression that the present structure of the universe, apparently so sensitive to minor alterations in numbers, has been rather carefully thought out…The seemingly miraculous concurrence of these numerical values must remain the most compelling evidence for cosmic design.”  (Physicist Paul Davies, “God and the New Physics,” page 189)
“Would it not be strange if a universe without purpose accidentally created humans who are so obsessed with purpose?”  (Sir John Templeton, “The Humble Approach: Scientists Discover God,” page 19)
“Set aside the many competing explanations of the Big Bang; something made an entire cosmos out of nothing. It is this realization–that something transcendent started it all–which has hard-science types…using terms like ‘miracle.'”  (Gregg Easterbrook, “The New Convergence”)

“Perhaps the best argument…that the Big Bang supports theism is the obvious unease with which it is greeted by some atheist physicists. At times this has led to scientific ideas…being advanced with a tenacity which so exceeds their intrinsic worth that one can only suspect the operation of psychological forces lying very much deeper than the usual academic desire of a theorist to support his or her theory.”  (C. J. Isham, “Creation of the Universe as a Quantum Process” page 378)
“Science and religion…are friends, not foes, in the common quest for knowledge. Some people may find this surprising, for there’s a feeling throughout our society that religious belief is outmoded, or downright impossible, in a scientific age. I don’t agree. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that if people in this so-called ‘scientific age’ knew a bit more about science than many of them actually do, they’d find it easier to share my views.”  (Physicist John Polkinghorne, “Quarks, Chaos, and Christianity”)
“Science…has become identified with a philosophy known as materialism or scientific naturalism. This philosophy insists that nature is all there is, or at least the only thing about which we can have any knowledge. It follows that nature had to do its own creating, and that the means of creation must have included any role for God.”  (Professor Phillip E. Johnson, “The Church Of Darwin,” Wall Street Journal, August 16, 1999)
Chance Renders Evolution Impossible
“The probability of a single protein molecule being arranged by chance is, 1 in 10 to the 161 power, using all the atoms on earth and allowing all the time since the world began…for a minimum set of required 239 protein molecules for the smallest theoretical life, the probability is, 1 in 10 to the 119,879 power. It would take, 10 to the 119,879 power, years on average to get a set of such proteins. That is 10 to the 119,831 times the assumed age of the earth and is a figure with 119,831 zeros.”  (Dr. James Coppege from, “The Farce of Evolution” page 71)
“The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number with 40,000 nought’s after it…It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of Evolution. There was no primeval soup, neither on this planet nor on any other, and if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence.”  (Sir Fred Hoyle, highly respected British astronomer and mathematician)

“I could prove God statistically; take the human body alone; the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen, is a statistical monstrosity.”  (George Gallup, the famous statistician)
“The chance that higher life forms might have emerged through evolutionary processes is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junk yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the material therein.”  (Sir Fred Hoyle, Highly respected British astronomer and mathematician)
“The probability for the chance of formation of the smallest, simplest form of living organism known is 1 to 10 to the 340,000,000. This number is 1 to 10 to the 340 millionth power! The size of this figure is truly staggering, since there is only supposed to be approximately 10 to the 80 (10 to the 80th power) electrons in the whole universe!”  (Professor Harold Morowitz)
“The occurrence of any event where the chances are beyond one in ten followed by 50 zeros is an event which we can state with certainty will never happen, no matter how much time is allotted and no matter how many conceivable opportunities could exist for the event to take place.”  (Dr. Emile Borel, who discovered the laws of probability)
“The more statistically improbable a thing is, the less we can believe that it just happened by blind chance. Superficially, the obvious alternative to chance is an intelligent Designer.”(Professor Richard Dawkins, an atheist)
“The only competing explanation for the order we all see in the biological world is the notion of special creation.”  (Dr. Colin Patterson, evolutionist and senior Paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History, which houses 60 million fossils)
“To insist, even with Olympian assurance, that life appeared quite by chance and evolved in this fashion, is an unfounded supposition which I believe to be wrong and not in accordance with the facts.”  (Dr. Pierre-Paul Grasse, University of Paris & past-president of French Academy of Science.)
“It is emphatically the case that life could not arise spontaneously in a primeval soup from its kind.”  (Dr. A.E Wilder Smith, chemist and former evolutionist)
“The idea of spontaneous generation of life in its present form is therefore highly improbable even to the scale of the billions of years during which prebotic evolution occurred.”  (Dr. Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Prize winner)
“The complexity of the simplest known type cell is so great that it is impossible to accept that such an object could have been thrown together by some kind of freakish, vastly improbable event. Such an occurrence would be indistinguishable from a miracle.”  (Dr. Michael Denton, molecular biochemist)

“The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop.”  (Dr. Edwin Conklin, evolutionist and professor of biology at Princeton University.)
“Hypothesis [evolution] based on no evidence and irreconcilable with the facts….These classical evolutionary theories are a gross over-simplification of an immensely complex and intricate mass of facts, and it amazes me that they are swallowed so uncritically and readily, and for such a long time, by so many scientists without a murmur of protest.”  (Sir Ernst Chan, Nobel Prize winner for developing penicillin)
“All of us who study the origin of life find that the more we look into it, the more we feel it is too complex to have evolved anywhere. We all believe as an article of faith that life evolved from dead matter on this planet. It is just that life’s complexity is so great, it is hard for us to imagine that it did.”  (Dr. Harold Urey, Nobel Prize winner)
“The world is too complicated in all parts and interconnections to be due to chance alone. I am convinced that the existence of life with all its order in each of its organisms is simply too well put together. Each part of a living thing depends on all its other parts to function. How does each part know? How is each part specified at conception? The more one learns of biochemistry the more unbelievable it becomes unless there is some type of organizing principle—an architect.”  (Scientist Allan Sandage)
“One may well find oneself beginning to doubt whether all this could conceivably be the product of an enormous lottery presided over by natural selection, blindly picking the rare winners from among numbers drawn at utter random…..nevertheless although the miracle of life stands “explained” it does not strike us as any less miraculous. As Francois Mauriac wrote, “What this professor says is far more incredible than what we poor Christians believe.”  (French Biochemist and Nobel Prize winner, Jacques Monod, “Chance and Necessity.”)
“A further aspect I should like to discuss is what I call the practice of infinite escape clauses. I believe we developed this practice to avoid facing the conclusion that the probability of self-reproducing state is zero. This is what we must conclude from classical quantum mechanical principles as Wigner demonstrated”  (Sidney W. Fox, “The Origins of Pre-Biological Systems)
“In terms of their basic biochemical design….no living system can be thought of as being primitive or ancestral with respect to any other system, nor is there the slightest empirical hint of an evolutionary sequence among all the incredibly diverse cells on earth.”  (Dr. Michael Denton, molecular biochemist)
“We have always underestimated the cell…The entire cell can be viewed as a factory that contains an elaborate network of interlocking assembly lines, each of which is composed of a set of large protein machines…Why do we call [them] machines? Precisely because, like machines invented by humans to deal efficiently with the macroscopic world, these protein assemblies contain highly coordinated moving parts.”  (Bruce Alberts, President, National; Academy of Sciences “The Cell as a Collection of Protein Machines,” Cell 92, February 8, 1998)

“We should reject, as a matter of principle the substitution of intelligent design for the dialogue of chance and necessity; but we must concede that there are presently no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical system, only a variety of wishful speculations.”  (Biochemist, Franklin M. Harold “The Way of the Cell,” page 205)
“Evolutionary biologists have been able to pretend to know how complex biological systems originated only because they treated them as black boxes. Now that biochemists have opened the black boxes and seen what is inside, they know the Darwinian theory is just a story, not a scientific explanation.”  (Professor Phillip E. Johnson)
“The simplicity that was once expected to be the foundation of life has proven to be a phantom; instead, systems of horrendous, irreducible complexity inhabit the cell. The resulting realization that life was designed by an intelligence is a shock to us in the twentieth century who have gotten used to thinking of life as the result of simple natural laws. But other centuries have had their shocks, and there is no reason to suppose that we should escape them. Humanity has endured as the center of the heavens moved from the earth to beyond the sun, as the history of life expanded to encompass long-dead reptiles, as the eternal universe proved mortal. We will endure the opening of Darwin’s Black box”  (Michael J. Behe, Biochemist “Darwin’s Black Box, pg. 252”)
“An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going.”   (Dr. Francis Crick, biochemist, Nobel Prize winner, Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature, pg. 88)

“Contrary to the popular notion that only creationism relies on the supernatural, evolutionism must as well, since the probabilities of random formation of life are so tiny as to require a ‘miracle’ for spontaneous generation tantamount to a theological argument.”  (Dr. Chandra Wickramasinge, cited in, Creation vs Evolution, John Ankerberg, pg. 20.)
“Complex molecules that are essential to particular organisms often have such a vast information content as…to make the theory of evolution impossible.”  (Bird, Origin of Species Revisited, Vol. 1, pg. 71)

“A close inspection discovers an empirical impossibility to be inherent in the idea of evolution.”  (Dr. Nils Heribert-Nilsson, Swedish botanist and geneticist, English Summary of Synthetische Artbildung, pg. 1142-43, 1
