Wat noem jy …

…’n Swaan wat: 

  • die emmer geskop het
  • lepel in die dak gesteek het
  • die houtjas aangetrek het
  • heengegaan het
  • bokveld toe is
  • by die lang boompies lê
  • voete eerste uitgedra is
  • ses voet onder is
  • wurm kos geword het
  • daisies opstoot
  • hemel toe is
  • die tydelike met die ewige verwissel het

‘n Swaan lyk, natuurlik!

‘n Nuwe Politieke Party!

vlag

                                                          Die Partyvlag – Simbolies van ons Doelstelling

Kom sluit aan!

As politieke party werk ons vir ‘n radikale verandering aan die Afrikaanse Taal!

Môre moet jy mooi kyk op jou stembrief en maak seker jy trek jou kruisie REG! Stem vir óns.

Sommige Afrikaanse woorde se klank pas by hulle betekenis (néé dis nie onomatopoefie nie). Hier is ‘n paar voorbeelde:

  • Op, af
  • Hoog, laag
  • Bo, onder
  • Skerp, stomp
  • Ys, warm
  • Mes, lem

Maar daar is twee Afrikaanse woorde wat die raisin d’êtter is vir ons bestaan, naamlik
Dik en Dun
Die twee woorde se klank is heeltemal verkeerd! Veel beter sou wees Duk en Din. Dan sou die klank perfek pas by die woorde se betekenis. En dis om dit te bewerkstellig dat ons Parlement toe wil, néé móét!

Sluit aan. kliek HIER.

Ons staan vir VERANDERING.

Ons Strydkreet: Ons staan by jou deur Duk en Din!

But Is It True? – The Research of Aaron Wildavsky Twenty Years Later

For those of us who harbour “absolute certainty” about anything – in particular about issues with little or conflicting evidence.

“Most of the greatest evils that man has inflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, is false.” Bertrand Russell

Watts Up With That?

Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball

In his fascinating 1950 book “Unpopular Essays,” mathematician and philosopher Bertrand Russell wrote that

“Most of the greatest evils that man has inflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, is false.”

He explained how the nature of people made such inflictions possible.

The demand for certainty is one which is natural to man, but is nevertheless an intellectual vice. So long as men are not trained to withhold judgment in the absence of evidence, they will be led astray by cocksure prophets, and it is likely that their leaders will be either ignorant fanatics or dishonest charlatans. To endure uncertainty is difficult, but so are most of the other virtues.

Over the last fifty years the evil inflicted involved exploitation of a new and necessary idea – environmentalism and its subset global warming.

The “cock-sure prophets” are…

At 60 meters height the entire assembly came crashing down onto the earth below.

According to an eyewitness, a gust of wind may have caused the rotor to strike the tower before falling.

The SVZ reports that the impact likely caused irreparable damage to the structure’s foundation, and so the entire turbine unit will have to be rebuilt complete from scratch.

Damage is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands of euros. No one was injured.

The accident is now under investigation and a…
