Synlogos - an aggregator of Christian and based syndications.
The New Based Right - via Synlogos, an article discussing a variant etymology for "based", meaning the contrary to "debased". As someone who always disliked "based" based on its affiliation with degenerate culture (slang for "freebased", referencing use of crack cocaine and methamphetamine), this is a perspective that redeems the term for me.
Capitalism Does Not Equal Corporatism, Part 2 - The sequel to the previously posted article is available, and equally as fantastic.
Capitalism Does Not Equal Corporatism, Part 1 by Lance Roberts of Real Investment Advice. A great article that persuasively argues a position I've often expressed: the problem that most people falsely label as "capitalism" is not. When you perceive the larger picture correctly, you see that the problem is bad government; bad government can be fixed.
The Warrenton Declaration on Medical Mandates, Biblical Ethics, & Authority - a wonderful Christian contextualization of Biblical principles as they relate to the Chinavirus and governmental overreach in its shadow.
The Warrenton Declaration on Medical Mandates, Biblical Ethics, & Authority was created in order to provide doctrinal clarity and coherence on issues of biblical authority and ethics related to medical mandates. The declaration seeks to equip local churches and their officers in providing transparency on where they stand and to assist individuals who are being mistreated in their churches with a well-ordered summary of belief in this regard.
A new research article, Polθ reverse transcribes RNA and promotes RNA-templated DNA repair, is calling into question the commonly-accepted dogma underpinning the mRNA vaccine implementation. The typical belief is that "mRNA doesn't influence DNA". Popular science commentary, however, agrees that this is unusual. SciTechDaily reports:
Cells contain machinery that duplicates DNA into a new set that goes into a newly formed cell. That same class of machines, called polymerases, also build RNA messages, which are like notes copied from the central DNA repository of recipes, so they can be read more efficiently into proteins. But polymerases were thought to only work in one direction DNA into DNA or RNA. This prevents RNA messages from being rewritten back into the master recipe book of genomic DNA. Now, Thomas Jefferson University researchers provide the first evidence that RNA segments can be written back into DNA, which potentially challenges the central dogma in biology and could have wide implications affecting many fields of biology.
Hat tip to "Pierre", a commenter on Vox Day's blog, discussing an article with a new source highlighting how poor neo-Darwinists are at time estimation.
Medscape has published a comment thread titled How concerned are you about adverse events related to the vaccines? Commenting is allegedly limited to health professionals, but their vetting is not particularly resilient. It took me only a few fields of data entry to be considered a "health professional". Nevertheless, the discussion seems legitimate.

The Imaginary Climate Crisis: How can we Change the Message? A talk by Richard Lindzen. The concluding paragraph follows:
Our task is to show the relevant people the overall stupidity of this issue rather than punching away at details. In focusing on the details, we are merely trying to showcase our own specialties. My use of the word ‘merely’ is probably unjustified; the details can, in fact, be scientifically important. However, we are not considering either our target audience or the intrinsic absurdity of the issue. It is likely that we have to capitalize on the insecurity of the educated elite and make them look silly instead of superior and virtuous. We must remember that they are impervious to real science unless it is reduced to their level. When it is reduced to their level, it is imperative that we, at least, retain veracity. Whether we are capable of effectively doing this is an open question.

The temperature–CO2 climate connection: an epistemological reappraisal of ice-core messages. A peer reviewed evaluation of the ice-core data on CO2.
Because CO2 emissions are considered to be the single most important factor currently affecting climate, unprecedented efforts are being formulated to achieve carbon-free societies within a few decades. In view of the major social, environmental, political and economic issues raised by such a transition, two points deserve special attention. The first concerns geochemical evidence available for the greenhouse effects of CO2 (and of CH4 as well) over periods of time long enough to encompass great climate cycles. The second deals with the actual heuristic value of climate simulations, which appears to be generally acknowledged without having undergone real in-depth analyses. Both points will, thus, be reviewed critically from an epistemological standpoint in the present study. In fact, the approach followed will be justified by serious weaknesses pointed out on both counts, which will, in particular, illustrate once more why models that are now so extensively relied on in many fields of science and in public policies can lack any real demonstrative value.
A popular media lie to try and cover-up the fact that Chinavirus vaccines are developed using aborted babies is that the HEK-293 cell line might not have been from an abortion. This is false, according to the developer himself. Children of God for Life put together a lovely page extracting all the relevant citations. In the case of HEK-293, Eb explained at an FDA meeting discussing vaccines. Local archive here. Relevant discussion is on page 81, starting around line 14.

Nonreplicable publications are cited more than replicable ones - Additional documentation on the replication crisis in science: most studies don't replicate, and those that don't are cited more than those that do.
