Progress Over The Last 45 Years

In 1968, apes ruled the planet, and National Geographic was popular because of wonderful photography showing topless island women with perky breasts.

National Geographic has since dropped the stimulating photography, and is now a sci-fi magazine with intellectual apes as editors.

    Same thing happened with Popular Science. Once, in the 1960’s, it was worth looking for on the newsstand. Now it’s mostly pseudoscience.

    • Bob Knows says:

      I read Popular Science for years beginning in Jr. High School. Somewhere along the line they changed from printing science. Its new name should be Popular Socialist.

    Hilarious!

    It’s already starting so I’ll leave this here, a bit off topic, about the W WA mudslide. People have already started attributing this to climate change, but here’s an interesting fact:

    As late as March 4, the US Drought Monitor showed Western WA as abnormally dry. A month earlier the region was classified as Moderate Drought.

    So rain, uncommon in Western WA, ends the drought, both caused by climate change.

    After many years of getting Nat. Geo. we let our subscription lapse (same with SciAm).
    I haven’t seen numbers reported on the circulation of either.

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey John, same thing at our house. Almost all of my brightest friends were avid readers of Scientific American and National Geographic. Note the verb tense, “were.” None of them bother with either magazine now. Somewhen between one or two decades ago, both publications began spiraling down the toilet drain.

      I miss both magazines — but they are dead and gone.

    • John B., M.D. says:

      Me too. I cancelled my Nat Geo subscription when they became activists supporting an agenda.

    CLIMATE CRISIS HITS AUSTRALIA: Four feet in 18 Days!
    “Nothing approaching this volume of surface water has ever before been witnessed in Mackay. The rain fall from Sunday night, when the disturbance started, to 9 a.m. Friday, was 56.20 inches, which, added to 21.46 inches from -4th inst. to Sunday evening, gives the record for the month of 77.66 inches, equivalent, roughly, to the whole of the rainfall in a good year.” – 02 Feb 1918

    Sounds more impressive in metric – 1941 mm of rain fell in the month of January 1918!!

    • stewart pid says:

      Andy it sounds impressive in either metric or imperial units … I had a holy crap moment and then noticed the date ;-)
      This is solid proof of climate change … it is always changing / breaking records!!

  8. Back in 1992 I spent some time in El Salvador and was pretty much all over the country, was interesting with the gorillas in the mountains causing problems. Anyways national geographic s did a story on El Salvador not long after that. After reading that article I canceled my subscription for when I read something I want the truth not propaganda. Figured if magazine would lie about this they would lie about anything. Such a shame loved most of their pictures.

  9. Charlton Heston: great in every era. RIP Judah Ben-Hur.

  10. Bob Knows says:

    Scientific American has gone the same way. They always used to write or publish good science articles. Sometime in the 1990s they changed to publishing leftist propaganda crapola instead of science. The name should be changed to Socialist Garbage American.

  11. Gail Combs says:

    You can add me to the list of those who used to read Nat. Geo and Sci Amer. and gave it up because of the crap psycience in both.

    Sadly, The Smithsonian has also become a toothless party line mag as well. Only my Rifleman mag has stayed true. ;)
