  2. Climate Change is a Hoax

    See if you can't persuade them to go to Canada instead. They can then meet up with all those American celebrities who promised to go to Canada if Trump was elected.

    I really like the way you've dissected tribalism and conformity and I think it adds further weight to my previous post, thank you. However, there is one thing here that I wouldn't say I disagree with, but I would call it a slight shift in emphasis: I think the "megaphones" work both ways. From the megaphone side - you've got the agenda that serves a certain purpose - marketing, consumer-culture, trends, whatever else it may be and to whatever end. From the other side - the "listener" side - you've got the diminished ability (not necessarily correlated to "capacity") of the individuals to actually "make up their own mind" about what they are hearing. And I think the latter is of greater importance by far. This is because there will always be someone, or some group, with some agenda, trying to gain some kind of advantage over people or a specific group of people. This has not changed throughout human history. It is people's ability to "filter out the crap", to think as an individual, the courage to stand alone with their opinions, the insight and the self-awareness - that will determine how, where and to what end the "message from the megaphone" lands. This is every person's OWN responsibility. Not everything (most things, actually) can be delegated and distributed to the all-pervasive and seemingly always elusive "sinister powers" that hold that megaphone. I see this trend of blame-shifting just as a way of dodging individual responsibility. It used to be the devil, then it's the aliens, then it's the Illuminati and then it's finally "the media". My point is that the strong individual needs to persevere IN SPITE of all the opposition from the group AND the devil AND the aliens AND the Illuminati AND the media AND whatever else. The existence of these external factors does not relinquish the individual of his own responsibility and the power and pervasiveness of these external factors is not an excuse for not doing the necessary work that one needs to do with oneself.
  4. Simple one. When I say God, truly what is the first thing that comes into your mind? I see an entity that programmed the laws of nature, pressed play and just observes. Do people adhere strictly to the Abramic God, to the various Gods of Greek/Roman/Pagan/Norse/Old Irish/Native American/Hindi/ Asian God/s etcetera.
  5. "Ok to be gay" school lessons cause unrest

    no, i was told that by a Iranian uber driver when we were stock in traffic due to street closures on the day of a gay parade. this is what i found in the wiki,
  6. "It's certainly not Rome, because the features don't match," says site superintendent Eugenio La Rocca. "Also, it's not London, as has been suggested." This ancient city could be from Spain, Trajan was from Spain.
  7. Best States for a chance to see bigfoot

    How about: 9. Anomalous Experience. Encounters with Bigfoot are experienced as real even though the biological creature is not. Pareidolia, false memories, legend-tripping, wishful thinking, exaggeration, fabrications (unintentional and otherwise), etc. Fits the data: Lots of compelling subjective reports, zero objective evidence. A uniquely human experience (there is no evidence Bigfoot is impacting upon other species)... ???
  8. Climate Change is a Hoax

    But wait there's more... https://www.news.com.au/national/federal-election/australians-are-dumb-celebs-fury-at-scott-morrison-federal-election-win/news-story/8392a4c2d8540d0c895808896c61409d Apparently celebrates, (the real experts) in AU, are considering moving to New Zealand, which is a plus for us, and remarks that Australians are Morons, and stupid, (the stupid remark comes, l believe from Labours energy minister, sorry cannot find it, but l read it in todays paper). True we are all going to perish in a global disaster since we are going to do little to curb it, eventhough we can do little to curb it, (l know). As l said previously, shock tactics, the true believers running rampant, screaming save my children, (my brainwashed children) and the rest of us, grabbing the popcorn, and watch how far they will go? Here is the true climate expert... The full video isn't available anymore, which is a pity considering l bought a full bag of popcorn, sniff. Before the flood,.....o.......k. And he says, "so much l don't know" can't argue with that point. This one is closer to the truth... p***es away substantial amounts of cash, and uses fossil fuels like their is no tomorrow, (lol) Another rich, brat, pushing pseudo-religous scientific dogma, with a lot of emotion and not much else.
  9. US government covered up UFO incidents

    Could you explain, what do you mean?
  10. @JessicaButerfly, you might want to research what you’re posting a little further...

    Good strong fences make good neighbours.  

  12. Respected nuclear physicist and UFOlogist Stanton Friedman maintains that the United States government hides the truth about UFO incidents from the public. Stanton Friedman has investigated UFOs for over fifty years, searching for scientific proof of their existence. He’s a retired nuclear physicist who has worked on highly classified projects involving fusion and fission rockets and nuclear aircraft for state-of-the-art companies including General Electric, Westinghouse, McDonnell Douglas, General Motors and Aerojet General Nucleonics. source: https://anomalien.com/nuclear-physicist-says-us-government-covered-up-ufo-incidents/

    I've got a nice strawberry Milkshake from Tesco. Which prominent Brexiteer should I throw it at?

  15. The American Mafia Today

    It's the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" meets "The Sopranos." A career criminal with past ties to the mob has been charged with beating up a former RHONJ cast member and her fiance after breaking into their home in 2017. James "Jimmy Balls" Mainello, 51, was arrested at his home in Bayonne on Friday nearly two years after the bizarre attack in which "an Italian guy with a North Jersey accent" told the pair: "This is what happens when you **** with people from Paterson." Monmouth County prosecutors said Mainello and another man were lying in wait inside the Banyan Boulevard home of David Cantin on May 13, 2017, when Cantin and Dina Manzo were bum-rushed by the two assailants as they walked through their front door.

Is that stuff flammable?” I asked. Musitano turned with a serious look and said: “I can make it burn, if you want.” The joke was that Musitano was once so notorious for a string of arson and bombings in a Mafia extortion plot that Hamilton city council passed a unanimous motion banning him from the city when he was released from prison.

  16. I don't believe you

    Personally, I think Mr Walker is a good fellow, a garrulous old charlatan who posts outrageous stuff and delights in the ensuing controversy and relishes the attention. It's all harmless fun and he presents an irresistible windmill for myriad posters to take a tilt at. It does go without question that some take him far too serious.

  18. Is this cthulhu?

    yes i could be a fish but you dont see him. I know the feeling how something strokes gentle my lower leg in a deep dredging lake and i struggle in the water but didnt hit it and then swim away with 3 km/h. And not forget it because not sure what touch me there.
  19. I'd be a hypocrite otherwise. While he was alive I did not find any of his contributions noteworthy and felt he undermined critical thinking. Yeah but Krantz was a scientist. Friedman claimed to one long after he left the field. I found that dishonest using an appeal to authority like that. Krantz continued to write papers and face skeptics all the way through. Friedman didn't. He picked soft targets. I remember some of the believer posters here contacting him in the past and he told them not to talk to anyone skeptical and made skepticism put to be a bad thing. I didn't think he was a good role model for anyone. I'd agree with you on Krantz but not so much Friedman. Indeed, but wouldn't that offer such an individual even less integrity? Preying on the 37%?

      For someone that routinely wakes at a sparrows i can certainly relate. :angry:

  21. Anybody ever have speed dreams?

    Ahhh yes. That old argument. Hahah. You know logically none of this should be happening. There is logical happenstance, but a race of beings capable of recreating virtual environment inside of a neural network? Dude..one in ten thousand galaxies.

    Hi Eight bits Well said and I couldn't give a laugh and thank you so here it is. jmccr8
  23. "Ok to be gay" school lessons cause unrest

    Yes. Absolutely. They do.
  24. Nigel Farage’s undisclosed ‘lavish’ gifts

    What is it with this milkshake meme that nutty Remainers have taken to throwing at prominent brexiteers? I suppose it's something to do with instagram or whatever. anyway, the one this nutcase threw cost £5.25 didn't it?! Insanity.
  25. Cern and time line jumping

    The Berenstain vs Berenstien to me is just pronunciation was done incorrectly by a lot of people and it just stuck in people's memories and went from there, since that pronunciation is an easy mistake to make. I'd never heard of the Mandela Effect until that X Files reboot a couple years ago had an episode about it. I think memory is not infallible but who knows on a quantum time level if there aren't gravitational waves that create a burp in the system. I've never experienced an inconsistent event ever but not opposed to the possibility. I do think in Field of Dreams they say both, when he's asleep it's "they" and later it's "he" but I'd have to watch it again. That one is easy to explain to as he gets the voices it's the team that comes first then his Dad.
  26. Psychic attack! Need help!

    I can't see that the name makes any difference, there is no known mechanism to read thoughts, or implant thoughts from afar, it is just a supposition for which there is no confirmatory evidence.
