The Daily Fail didn’t quite live up to the epic treatment The Times gave of our future (look after yourself Ma’am!) King. Trust me, this is champagne idiocy…
The Prince of Wales has blamed a lack of belief in the soul for the world’s environmental problems, and said that the planet cannot sustain a population expected to reach 9 billion in 40 years.
Well Chuckles, we can solve this problem one person at a time. I assume you have a set of Purdeys. Do us all the favour.
He said he found it “baffling” that so many scientists professed a faith in God yet this had little bearing on the “damaging” way science was used to exploit the natural world.
Prince Charles finds many, many things “baffling”. I believe I should not dignify such outright bollocks with an answer but I shall. I have known scientists of many specialitities and of many faiths but I have never known one who didn’t compartmentalise. What I mean is I have known Pagans, Christians and Jews who could hack Quantum Mechanics and their religious beliefs were, in that context, irrelevant.
The Prince pinned part of the blame on Galileo. Criticising the profit imperative behind much scientific research, he said: “This imbalance, where mechanistic thinking is so predominant, goes back at least to Galileo’s assertion that there is nothing in nature but quantity and motion.
That is unfiskable nonsense. That is utter twattery. That’s royalty for ya. I bet Chuckles doesn’t know what the derivative of a sine function is and yet he is holding forth like some form of cunt in ordinary and particular.
“This is the view that continues to frame the general perception of the way the world works, and how we fit within the scheme of things.”
“As a result, Nature has been completely objectified — ‘She’ has become an ‘it’ — and we are persuaded to concentrate on the material aspect of reality that fits within Galileo’s scheme.” The Prince said that he believed “green technology” alone could not resolve the world’s environmental problems. Instead, the West must do something about its “deep, inner crisis of the soul”.”
I knew an Italian law student who was barking. He was frequently chucked out of the flat by me and a burly Canadian flatmate. He once claimed to have a “magic toy shop in his head”. Clearly Carlo has sold that one to Chuckles. Same name, really.
“Crisis of the soul”… Jesus fucking wept. There is a reason we are called “natural scientists” and it is our love of nature. Science is about glorying in nature and also figuring it out by rational means. Anyway, Prince Chuckles I spent the night of my wedding in bed with my wife. The night of your first one you were shagging another man’s wife. “Crisis of the soul” – I guess you’d know. And him a brother officer in the Army and that is strictly against Queen’s Regulations and that’s your Mum that is!
Speaking at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies to mark its 25th anniversary, the Prince — who is patron of the centre — said that the West had been been “de-souled” by consumerism.
My wife, myself and my cat live in a reasonably spacious two bedroom house in Cheshire. Where do you live Chuckles? You utter cunt.
He said that the present approach to the environment was contrary to the teachings of all of the world’s sacred traditions. The desire for financial profit ignored the spiritual teachings.
Oh my Gods! He has gone entirely woo-woo! What a complete tit-end. There is another way of stating “financial profit”. It’s called making a fucking living and is clearly something an inbred cretin like you can’t grasp Chuckles.
“Over the years, I have pointed out again and again that our environmental problems cannot be solved simply by applying yet more and more of our brilliant green technology — important though it is.”
Is this a backhanded way of acknowledging that “green technology” doesn’t work so it’s back to the yurt lads and lasses? (last yurt I saw on telly had a sat dish anyway) Also not the “again and again”. Chuckles is getting narked that he is being treated like a quarter wit and not the Philosopher King he thinks he is. Technology, Chuckles is pretty much by definition how shit gets done. If I visit a client I have a laptop, a set of posidrives, a multimeter and a few other things (depends on the job) and not a fucking dowsing rod and a host of whirling dervishes. Inductive and deductive reasoning Chuckles is the only reason this world is not ruled by mysticism and tyranny.
Further note to Chuckles: Philosopher Kings do net tend to aspire to be tampons. I know I always bring this up but… Love makes fools of us all but you know if it has a fool to work with in the first place then it has a thousand yard start.
“It is no good just fixing the pump and not the well,” he said. Talk of an “environmental crisis” or of a “financial crisis” was actually describing “the outward consequences of a deep, inner crisis of the soul”.
Does Chuckles have the faintest grasp on reality? I think he’s melting.
Focusing on population growth, he warned of “monumental problems” as numbers rose. “It would certainly help if the acceleration slowed down, but it would also help if the world reduced its desire to consume,” he said.
Ah, the fixed wealth fallacy. From a geezer with two palaces. Magic.
You think I’m harsh on Prince Chuckles? Chuckles is a cunt-standing fucktroon of a turd-burglar. By that I mean no offence to male homosexuals at all (I tend to hold nothing against them*). I mean he simply creeps around in the dead of night and literally burgles turds. It’s a sustainable industry. Monbiot does it too – on the sly – he’s more of a felcher. If you are in the vicinity of either Highgrove or Clarence House I wouldn’t go out after dark without a firearm otherwise you could face a fate worse than death. And beware of dithering men in double-breasted jackets. They might be called Charles.
*Sarge, You can shoot me for that later. That was bloody awful.
