the point is that British society seems broken enough that no one seems to know what ideas or personalities are popular in other socioeconomic classes. Which is why Brexit caught you guys all off-guard even though it appears a majority of Brits were all about cutting off their nose to spite their face.

Sorry, not long after my last post there was a personal family problem which in some ways is still ongoing. It is also nearly time to go back to school.

I worked on several designs for what was described in the last post, a combined Stirling-Vuilleumier engine/heat-pump and have finally arrived at this:

Which is intended as the first frame of a gif animation.

What is illustrated is essentially an ordinary LTD Stirling Engine with a secondary regenerative displacer for fulfilling the function of a Vuilleumier cooler. This is the simplest design and the easiest to build, and in my visualizations at least, should work better than the earlier design I was talking about. If the idea can work at all.

I'm also posting to the Stirling Engine forum:

Again, a majority of brits voted to leave the EU to keep the immigrants out. Lose the high and mighty shit

No need to get defensive, I'm not interested in Brits vs US comparisons, just saying he was a nobody over here before he started turning up on US campuses and found an audience with the alt right.
How did the self-control part evolve?
Like vox said, not a simple explanation, and one you have failed to honestly engage in in the past.
If you really wanted to learn, there are folks here far more qualified than I to explain it and, gosh, they've tried.
I would like to see your side become honest and admit that you don't have any explanation. Just as you don't have any explanation for how life got started on Earth. Just as you don't have any explanation for the origin of diversity of species.
You're wrong, though.
I have learned so much on these threads - not from you, but from all the cool, interesting science posted in rebuttal to you.
It's painfully obvious that you disregard anything that conflicts with what you want to believe, so you will never understand what they have been trying to teach you.
And it's sad, because you really do want to know this stuff. And you would enjoy knowing it!
I hear this off and on from various people here. Let me list some of the things that I think you should have learned from me... Some of the most important things...

1) how to maintain healthy, food-producing farm animals with no medications whatsoever while at the same time improving and restoring your ecosystem.

2) RM + NS is being rejected by more and more scientists within the life sciences as a creative force in nature

3) many indigenous groups around the world had near Perfect Teeth and near-perfect health back in the 1930s.

4) most viruses are not bad, contrary to popular opinion. In fact life on Earth would not be possible without them. One of their key functions is to "pollinate" bacteria with needed genes.

5) Nuking bacteria with antibiotics is a dead end Street and will not result in the long-term health of humanity.

6) vaccinations are only a good thing in very specific, unnatural contacts.

7) the fact of continent-sized sheets of sandstone which are extremely flat and extremely thin Force us to conclude that there must have been a giant cataclysm in the past.

There's more, but that's a start.
Why should I learn anything from you?  You preach, you don't teach.

You have nothing to teach about those subjects because you refuse to rely on credible sources to learn about them yourself.

What I have learned about those subjects here has come from the reality-based (''science'') community, not your incoherent, error-riddled attempts to apologize and harmonize your muddled beliefs.
