    @pokingjoker, hope your friends sister doesn’t mind you posting her face on public forums? Any chance of a photo of the room from the same place without her in it? That would help to work out what it is.
  3. I think it's a Thought Form that's become a shared experience. You both have Skinwalkers on your minds and through the power of suggestion you both see it. Real Skinwalkers can't really shapeshift and don't bother folks that don't bother them. It's just a type of Shaman. In Central America they are called "Nagual". Among my people "Kiimochknii"
  4. Let's talk history

    Likewise. Glad you are here.

    locked up his child heart safe keeping from those who would stomp out innocence
  6. Many peoples in many boats from many places. OK By the way, thanks folks for cleaning up Wikipedia. I appreciate that.
  7. Let's talk history

    I sympathise with the native americans and they have my utter most admiration and respect and they have always fascinated me i dont deny my ancestors without them i wouldn't exist what i was making fun of was the idiocracy to fake your ancestory If you're my friend i dont care what nationality you are.
  8. You reminded me of my days sweeping fake Indian tribes out of Wiki. No fun.
  9. If it happens again, I could.
  10. Skinwalkers are the most common in my area. I think it's likely that's what it is.
  11. God comes in many forms. Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you! Ghostbusters
  12. Haha, he mentioned Doug Weller a fellow I know. He and I (mainly he) did a cleaning sweep of Atlantis fake facts out of Wikipedia some years ago. Catholic Native Americans speaking Norse huh? Yeah baby.....bottle that crazy and sell it at the flea market for quatloos.
  13. I don't believe you

    I like this post yes there is some academic debate However it tends to fall into two camps Those, like you and sherapy, who believe morals and ethics are absolute and those, like me, who see them as situational and contextual or relative. Your first source explains this but, without any good reason dismisses cultural relativism. In fact all ethics and moralities are only human constructs and thus ALL are constructed from within a cultural framework quote from your source Slavery is acceptable in this culture Slavery was generally accepted by the majority in some societies - if ethics is a matter of public opinion (Cultural Ethical Relativism) then some would say that slavery was ethically OK in those societies where it was the cultural norm. This sort of argument is a key reason why many people oppose CER. This is also bit misleading The argument is not simply that it was acceptable by their cultural values (although this is a very valid point) but tha t it was seen as acceptable for very rational, logical reasons (you cannot remove any cultural practice from the context of its entire society and judge it alone ) Living in slavery is better than starving to death In circumstances of extreme poverty, living in slavery may be the least bad available option. While slavery may be the least bad option for an individual, this doesn't justify slavery, but indicates that action should be taken to provide other better options to individuals. This also misses the point and is unrealistic and naive although it sounds nice The point was that there were no other better options for slaves which did not endanger the slave holding society . The existing options included death, and/ or forced integration of women and children And of course,all of the other current values and beliefs of the day meant this was not even considered No one is trying to "justify" slavery, other than to explain why it was necessary, and why other options were not practical at the time. You might as well ask why we didn't all use solar panels in the 1800s As i said, i find your posts genuine and non judgemental, even where i disagree with them This is how debate should be carried on. To explain a little more about the value of fiction. I've just been reading some books by Fiona Macintosh, an Australian author, about women among the gold and silversmith families in Birmingham in the early 20th century. Like many authors she has done a great deal of research, and her stories reflect and describe, not just the physical lives, but also the attitudes of people from different classes, in the time. She explores two women in particular who enter the predominantly mans world of crafting. However she also bring in vivid descriptions of poverty and living conditions among the poor, what it was like in a poor house, and the limitations imposed on women by their gender and the perception of their nature. The description of women working on the industrial looms is detailed and horrifying with the long hours, physical dangers, and poor pay. The descriptions of the suffering and death of people, especially children, among those so poor that the y have no food or heating, and certainly no medicine, is very moving and graphic

    I have no idea what 8 bits is on about with his disapproval of viable, no controversy surrounds the word that I know of.

    When I got to work today my friend showed me the pic, as it's her sister, now I didn't go into her story but they believe they have a haunting, I didn't post any of that story cause it's just a story as far as I'm concerned. Mediums at the house yadda yadda. Common ghost story stuff, thus my lean towards ghost haunting board. Doesn't really matter far as I'm concerned. It's just the image itself I'm interested in hearing people break down

    I just tagged the inhouse photo guy.
  20. I don't believe you

    No viable (in my lexicon) means doable or practical (never heard it used as american jargon) Many things are theoretically possible or good, but not viable due to the practical realities of life Thus while slavery could have been stopped in some ancient societies (if anyone had actually seen it as wrong) the effects of stopping it would have been so negative as to make that a non viable option. We could stop all production of fossil fueled cars today and it would be a positive but the negative realities make it non viable at this time. i will accept this is one of the genuine differences which causes difficulty in communication between American speakers and English speakers And clearly you are blind to Sherapy's comments about evil, despicable, people who see slavery as a good thing.(even when some of them have explained this is not their view at all ) And parents who are child abusers because they used corporal punishment on their children. The level of others education and knowledge determines how sensible, deep and meaningful, any debate can be. People who just see slavery as evil, and believe it was always evil, have no understanding of our past and why slavery existed quite legally, and without serious dispute, for all but the last 200 years or so, or why rape in marriage was not even conceptualised, let alone seen as wrong, until last century, and was not legislated against until the 1960s it is difficult to have a rational debate with a person whose values are emotional, rather than logically and factually based

    I wasn't sure where to put the post, ghost seemed like as good a choice as any. As for her tilt, kids and selfie I got no clue. I'm not a look at me take a selfie guy. I'm not saying it's anything except odd. I see something in the background no clue what it is. If it's a filter of some type, an app, a kite blown I'm the window. No clue. And that's the point of me posting is to get advice from people who do know a bit more about photo and imagery. So please any and all advice, points, theories welcome.
  22. Knocking on front door

    Sounds like you need to talk to the cops. You could have a stalker.

  24. I don't believe you

    lol Hopefully you have also learned something (yes i got the sarcasm) I know my intelligence, both from a life time of experience with a huge range of people, and from professional testing. In some ways it is a "curse" because it means i always see things in logical, rational criteria referenced ways and this can make me see uncaring or indifferent But in most ways it is a skill talent or abilty which has helped and empowered me throughout my life However i was raised that it is not how you feel about others which matters, but how you treat them (eg the best thing you can do for someone suffering loss is not to feel sorry for them or tell them you, are sorry, but to help them with practical things.) I've sent my life improving the lives of others and if i seem a bit unemotional that is a fair trade off. In some ways i see people who react emotionally, rather than rationally, as quite dangerous, if it is excessive.
  25. Five knocks on front door, no one there. Noises around house between 3am to 6am. Negative things happening. What should I do? I’m really scared.
