    The reality of soul

    So am I, and in fact can see certain possibilities (though not in the normal folkloric/religious version of a "soul"). Though with all due respect, I'm not convinced that you are. To what extent have you researched both sides of this topic yourself? When someone opens a thread with a claim that is clearly and unequivocally wrong (that science is proving that the soul exists), why shouldn't it be pointed out? It shouldn't be taken as a personal slight, after all, we are all wrong at times and discussion is what forums are about. It's really more the opposite in truth. The idea of a mind/body duality has lost favour with academics for a century or more, for good reason. Modern neuroscience certainly doesn't support it. More recent science has left us with a very good idea of the "standard model" ie. what forces and particles could interact at the scale of the neural processes in the brain. There isn't anything that could amount to a separate "consciousness" or "soul"... at least nothing that isn't found in the atomic structure of all other matter. Which also means that the mind has plain old ordinary physical matter as its basis. Science could be wrong of course (it's basic to science to leave that possibility open) and it's fine to believe that you have a soul, if that takes your fancy. In fact, most people on earth simply assume they have such a thing and never look into it further or doubt it. That's up to them, but why would you expect everyone else to believe it?
  6. I'm afraid it is. There's something competing between the actual biology and the mental processes of the individual. They're rejecting their physical body. It's all done mentally. It's either a chemical imbalance (like mental disorders are) or it's suggestive and an adopted way of thinking (which is also a disorder, like an eating disorder). It's society which is trying to tell you that it's acceptable. Gender rejection isn't as common as they'd like you to believe. Well, it wasn't - until it became way more commercialised, publicised and forced on society by the media and influencers. Back in the 80s and 90s, it was just dressing in drag. It was a preference, a hobby. They weren't rejecting the fact that they are men. They were drag queens, not "gender fluid". They did what they did without needing special validating labels. Now it's become what 'emo' was to the 2000s. Twenty years ago, you said the word depression in a classroom and every sulking teenager in that room would raise their hands - fingernails painted black, straightened hair hiding half their face and scars on their arms - sitting in front of their poetry journal and Simple Plan whinging from their iPod. Depression was a trend back then. Now it's an accepted, recognised mental disorder that attracts serious support and long-term prescriptions. It's no different to this. Back then, not everyone had depression. Teenagers were impressionable and they copied each other. Only a percentage of them were actually suffering from depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies. The rest were just hitching a ride on the black bandwagon. Now - you've got parents changing the name of their four year olds, starting nine year olds on hormone treatments and flying overseas with their fourteen year olds for major surgical mutilation of their under-developed bodies. Teenagers don't even know what they want to do once they've left school! And how quickly does a child change their hobbies and eating preferences?! What's to say that this isn't just another case of hysteria, over-publicising and popularity (especially now that social media is so prevalent and influential in our society these days) that is causing these kids to claim that they want to be something else, or have rejected their biological gender... I'm all for trying to understand and support those who, as they've become adults, have remained very consistent in this desire and have made this decision on their own and once they've matured mentally but the argument that it's not fair to force a child to mature into a body that they 'don't identify with' while they're still a child is just insane.

    Britain’s oldest person dies aged 111

    It’s a claim - there is no proof. I suspect he may have tacked on his own father's or grandfather's birth details to his own life. I have always suspected the French woman who was said to be 121 or 122 at death also linked her details to her mother. I am very sceptical about these extreme ages.
  10. Ah the Setton we know and don't love... .... provoke the messenger to deflect from the message... The vulnerable people who are being used in these transgender experiments are one step away from a potential future eugenics program (of some kind) - and that's probably why it's being pushed so hard.. ???

    Mass Shooting Hanau, Germany

    The death toll is at 11 now. Some hours after the attack the police found the suspected shooter, and another person, in his home, both dead. Last Friday 12 persons ("Group S") have been arrested. They have been accused of planning attacks on 6 mosques here in Germany. The group was founded in 2015 as a "vigilante group" and had ties with other European terror groups like the "Soldiers of Odin" in Finland and groups in the Czech Republic as well, which were to deliver weapons to "Group S". Its known for a long time already that there is a Nazi hydra here in Europe and as per my opinion, the involved/responsible governments didnt fight them in the right way from the very beginning on and now we have to pay the bill.

      indeed, but you should know that diagnose kit is very insufficient. there are suspicious thousands of people who has symptom.

    Former NRL player murders entire family

    https://www.news.com.au/national/queensland/news/multiple-people-have-reportedly-died-following-a-car-fire-in-brisbane/news-story/b3150c84e7ef94a85b8c20bfeb4c3b6f The Courier Mail spoke exclusively to a witness who claimed Mr Baxter jumped into his estranged wife’s car while she was on the school run, setting it on fire before stabbing himself to death. Neighbour Aaron Snell also told the paper Mr Baxter was in “all manner of states’ and jumped into the flaming car to grab a knife while bystanders tried to help. Mr Snell said the heroic acts of bystanders were met with anger by Mr Baxter who was “protesting to stop putting it out.” Nine News reported Mr Baxter had bought a jerry can of fuel from a nearby petrol station and poured it over the car. He then died of self-inflicted stab wounds, it said. Police confirmed to news.com.au that Mr Baxter’s body was found outside the car, but wouldn’t say whether he had stabbed himself.
  18. Ah, the bee we know and love. Just ignore any science that contradicts you and parrot what you last saw on YouTube. It's good to know some people are reliable.
  19. An ex-rugby league player, his wife and their three children have died after a car fire in the Australian city of Brisbane. Rowan Baxter and the children, all under 10, were found dead at the scene by emergency responders, police said. His wife, Hannah Baxter, aged 31, died later in hospital from extensive burns. She had reportedly jumped from the car yelling: "He's poured petrol on me". Police are investigating how the fire started. "How the fire actually occurred has not been ascertained at the moment so for us to call it a murder-suicide or a tragic accident, it's inappropriate at this stage," Detective Inspector Mark Thompson said. "I've seen some horrific scenes - this is up there with some of the best of them." Police were first called to the scene in Camp Hill area in the east of Brisbane at 08:30 local time on Wednesday (21:30 GMT on Tuesday). They found the couple's three children Laianah, Aaliyah and Trey - aged between six and three - dead inside the car. Emergency crews tried to revive Rowan Baxter, 42, but he was declared dead. Australian media report that he was found close to the car with a self-inflicted stab wound. He had been in the front passenger seat and Hannah Baxter had been driving the car, police said. The pair had reportedly separated late last year, and were trying to work out custody arrangements. Residents told Australian media they had seen Mrs Baxter jump out of the car while she was on fire. She was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a critical condition, police said. But she was confirmed to have died later on Wednesday. From BBC article.

  20. I did a little more poking around. He's legit -- he's got a number of conference papers and has some work at arXiv.org (which are pre-print papers and haven't gone through peer review). It does appear to be mostly theoretical work, though. I can't gauge it any further than that.

    The reality of soul

    Could be worth taking your own advice and pondering that last part. Difference is: I'm open to the idea that I could very well be wrong. In fact, in all actuality, I base my beliefs off opinions, accepted ideas and intuition. I trust that the information I've been told by people who say they've researched things is true. As I get older, some things I previously believed have changed - and newer information has told me that those things were myths. I think ultimately, the majority of us aren't actually the ones doing the research. We're just sitting back assessing and observing the efforts of others, we're waiting for patterns and agreeing statements to come in from several sources, and then we make a decision that a certain idea or statement is true. Don't you see? Most of us are just basing our understanding of 'reality' on beliefs too! None of us have the opportunities, resources or time to master and understand everything there is to know - so we're reliant on the work and claims of others who say they've done the research, they've understood it, they've used the work of other scientists and researchers before them and they've come to an understanding and conclusion. It's a big web of trust - and sure, a lot of it is reliable. There'd be holes everywhere and not a lot of agreement if it wasn't reliable. But getting back to your statement - I know I'm not a researcher - I'm an observer. Every day I'm absorbing new information. I could be wasting my time in thinking that life has a spiritual nature to it. That's fine by me. I could be wrong. There could be absolutely nothing after life, and no reason to become a better person. But I like the way I live. And if science is wrong and I'm right, then I've covered all my bases and I'll have myself prepared for the next level. If science is right and I'm wrong, what does it matter anyway?
