  1. Past hour
  2. I played with a lot of western traditional systems of magick. By the end of my run in the occult I had a taste of witchcraft. Never liked the overly-religious approach to magick. I really got into spirit work because of my grandfathers death. I wanted proof there was more. I saw him, but I'm 99% sure it was a stress and emotionally induced hallucination.
  3. Illyrius No, actually it started when pseudoscientist is what Sheldrake decided to make of himself. Poor psyche simply oberved the sad consequences of Dr Sheldrake's bad decisions. Not admitting failure and not failing are two different things. CH Dawkins is a very good writer (and I'm sure you've noticed by now that I'm not a fan of his - but achievement is never to be disparaged). "The selfish gene" is a metaphor, and a powerful one. At no point, however, does anybody lose sight that the gene doesn't have a sense of self about which to be selfish. It's an inanimate molecule. So, clipping out phrases haphazardly from Dawkins' book isn't instructive. It's that "quote mining" thing that keeps coming up here. For starters, "selfish genes" are where we come from, not the outer limit of where we can go. There's nothing, not one thing, in that book that recommends otherwise, however artfully you apply your scissors. No, that's exactly the problem. He makes up the phenomena, and then makes up some busywork which he pronounces to be a "test" of what he's made up. Richard Feynman's phrase cargo cult science (searchable, and well worth searching if you aren't familiar with it) is more specific and more descriptive of Sheldrake than the more generic term pseudoscience. Sheldrake goes through the motions of doing things that superficially resemble what scientists do, just as two halves of a split coconut "resemble" an air traffic controller's headphones in cargo cult rituals. But there is no reality to the activity. The planes don't land. There are no planes. There is no airstrip. In science, there are planes, there is an airstrip, and the planes do land. Conclude: something is going on in science that eludes Dr Sheldrake. And it isn't just that real scientists staunchly refuse to book flights to Sheldrake's airport. They can't, even if they wanted to. There is no there there.
  4. Do you have anything other than delusional fiction to offer us?
  5. I've answered your questions. Thought I had already, but either it was deleted for content or I failed to hit the submit button. So, you don't know who or why, can't possibly even fathom a guess. For all you know then, in theory, it's possible it could have been Scott just as easily as it could have been someone else. No, not on the 24th, but on whatever day it was done by someone else. If Laci wasn't dumped in the bay, how did she get there? I mean, she was found there, right?
  6. Grandpop played with everything.
  7. The 3 items placed inside the Ark which was to house God were the Manna the bread that fell from Heaven to feed the Israelites 40 years in the desert, The Bread of Life which we know as the Christ, and the Tables of stone the 10 Commandments which we know as the Word of Life the Holy Ghost, and the Staff which budded known as the Tree of Life. God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Ghost dwelling inside the Ark of the Covenant.
  8. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Hoodoo I stand corrected. Never got into Hoodoo.

  10. Hoodoo is the merging of African "woo" with Southeastern Coastal Algonquian "woo" with some English stuff added. Nothing dark about it.

  12. It's HooDoo that's the darker side of it. Not voodoo. But yeah, 99.9% of all phenomenon can be rationally explained, and these ghost shows fabricate 'hauntings' because people like ghost stories. I think ghost hunters in the beginning was one of the better shows.
  13. So, you're saying that if President Obama had solid verifiable evidence that Donald Trump was a criminal colluding with the Kremlin to steal the 2016 Presidential election that it "makes perfect sense" that Obama would do nothing? Really? If this is the case then President Obama is not only a criminal himself, but he's a traitor to the Democratic party and to the United States of America. As much as I didn't care for President Obama's politics I do not think President Obama is a criminal and a traitor to the Republic. Also, without some very solid verifiable evidence I do not think President Trump is a criminal and a traitor to the Republic. In order for me to declare either of these US Presidents guilty of such a crime I'm going to need some verifiable rock solid evidence. What I do see evidence of is as follows: Both campaigns in the 2016 election were looking for any edge, this includes searching for dirt on the other candidate and schmoozing with anyone that might have anything on the other team (this includes Russians or any other nationality). Trump (a political novice) hired some businessmen that presented themselves as being experts in this arena (Manafort and Gates) these guys were not exactly 'clean as the new driven snow' Clinton and the DNC had it's share of 'not so squeaky clean' individuals as well (people who would shaft Mr Sanders and covertly hire others to buy opposition research from the Russians). This was a down and dirty election. Fast forward to where we are now. Where is the proof that Trump committed criminal collusion (things far beyond what saw both sides doing during the campaign)? Where is the solid verifiable evidence of Trump criminally colluding with the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election?
  14. 1. The very nature of a juror's job is to presume or infer. The directions and the law are quite clear on that. 2. I do not need physical or forensic evidence Laci was ever placed in the truck. I don't need physical or forensic evidence she was wrapped in the tarp. I don't need physical or forensic evidence she was placed in the boat or taken to the warehouse. You need that. The judge's instructions and California law don't require it. And if you want to portray my opinion as based simply on "Scott lied about the umbrellas" alone, that's you being dishonest. I've laid out the dozens of pieces of circumstantial evidence that you ignore, excuse, or laugh about. As for Scott viewing the e-mail, yes, that is reasonable as I am certain he did read the e-mail and respond to it. We're not talking about Scott, we're talking about proof Laci was on the computer. Cite your evidence SHE was on the computer...are YOU assuming it was her because of the scarf and sunflower umbrellas stand search on Yahoo? You going to tell me anecdotal evidence is gonna cut it but CE is not? 3. The boat cover - where it was placed, how it was placed, when it was placed, is evidence. It's up to the jury to infer from other facts whether there was a nefarious reason for it or not. The prosecution offered it as evidence, Gergaos didn't object, the judge allowed it. So, four people think it's evidence, you do not. 5. The knots or twine were not tied or placed by human hands around Conner in any way. The twine wrapped or looped around Conner came from tidal action. 6. So, you have no alternate killer meaning you have no evidence - anecdotal, circumstantial, physical, forensic, reliable, reasonable, or inculpatory - that Scott was framed, yet you clearly think he was? And because you think that, a jury should ignore everything presented and assume he was framed. That's not very consistent with your rules.
  15. Here's a spiritual experience for you to try. Go out to Joshua Tree, drop some acid and hit yourself between the eyes with a 32 oz peen hammer.
  16. Remeber the New Jerusalem is made of Light also.
  17. Looking out at her quaint Alabama backyard in late January, Charlie Stephenson noticed something unusual. A strange species of unfamiliar yellow bird was pecking at her hanging birdfeeder. As a seasoned birdwatcher, Stephenson had seen scores of cardinals in the past. But with its mustard-color coat, this flier was different. So, she took a photo with her iPhone and posted it on Facebook. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2018/02/birds-animals-cardinals-rare-yellow-spd/
  18. Many of you have seen the Ark visually from time to time. Things lifted up into Heaven do not remain in their earthly form, they are transformed into Heavenly form. God's Rainbow is the Heavenly form.. When Christ returns He will have a Rainbow around His head. Read Genesis 9:13, Revelations 4:3 and 10:1, and Ezekial 1:28 and notice what God is allowing us to see as Ezekial saw and realized who's presence he was in, without seeing Gods face. And God spoke to him out of the Rainbow, the dwelling place of God in Heaven.
  19. Do British traditions like 'drinking under the influence' mean nothing to you? Anyway... I tried to park in the designated swimming pool area, but the engine cut out. I had to get Weej to push me to Chaz's ChopShop. (She's a robust woman!) It was all going well until her head fell off.
  20. yeah. These shows end up to me being fantasy or just ghost stories. There are other things they could be focusing on. I know of one case where a murder suicide happened and five days before the murder, the couple moved into an apartment near a Spiritual Temple (voodoo in NOLA). 5 days is all, and they had a history of fighting and making up and breaking up. They moved in and the victim decided to throw the killer out, not let him sign the lease. Yet, the first group to investigate that location suggests it was voodoo that brought it on and possession is how he even did it. Ridiculous, and yet people want to believe this. Not that dude had PTSD (he was a Vet) and was messed up and killed her for breaking up with him like hundreds of other losers do. No he had to be possessed by something because they lived near a voodoo shop. There is not enough phenomenon to fill TV time, so they resort to bs and hype and only a naïve person would believe all that tripe. If you need 30 minutes or an hour a week you had best get into the history and art of these locations because the real spooky is not common and can be very elusive and impossible even to prove or show anyway.
  21. You made this claim and pretty much everybody in this section knows who everybody else is. My name is Richard Calumet Joseph I am the Historian for the Mickleton Friends (Quaker) Meeting and the former Native adviser for the Cumberland County Prehistory Museum and the various archaeologists involved with it and also the former cultural instructor/adviser and historian for the Nanticoke-Lenni Lenape Tribal Center. Now who the Hell are you?
  22. The Bible in Revelation 11:19 shows the Ark of the Covenant was lifted up from the earth into Heaven.
  23. It was these ghost hunting and paranormal shows that turned me away from being a believer. Same with the psychic shows. Everything is supernatural, everything is psychic, and the accuracy rate is nil.
  24. I have been thinking since I started this topic and realize maybe I also do the same thing. Maybe we need them for the laughs and screams but perhaps there is also room for a serious effort? We should not have to choose between campfire tales or religion to find answers or hypotheses on these things that don't fit anywhere else.
