  1. An interesting article, interested in posters thoughts. All voices are welcome. “The researchers offered a possible explanation for their finding: Religious people feel better about themselves in religious countries not because they're religious, but simply because they fit in with the crowd.” https://www.huffpost.com/entry/religion-happiness_n_1219295
  2. China is destroying our world, literally. The nation that spews the most pollution while currently building hundreds of coal-fired power plants all over the world is also the one that dumps the most plastic and unrecoverable garbage into our oceans and eco system. China is doing all this while winning accolades from the media about joining the fraudulent “Paris agreement” and from NGOs like Greenpeace and WWF for its efforts to “fight global warming” and “steer an eventual path away from fossil fuels”, all being ridiculous lies. Since 2011, China has consumed more coal than the rest of the world combined. China's carbon dioxide emissions passed those of the U.S. in 2005, and by 2012 had surpassed the combined contribution of both the U.S. and the EU. Should recent trends continue, China will be responsible for the most atmospheric carbon dioxide in less than 20 years. Chinese apologists and the media are always trying to mask China's pollution by using the ridiculous criteria of “pollution per capita”. Why is it ridiculous? Using this criteria makes Luxemburg seems like a bigger polluter than China. https://www.dispropaganda.com/single-post/2019/09/15/china-is-destroying-our-world-and-no-one-seems-to-mind

    I agree, a person has to have space in their lives to do what they please and what makes them happy. It is called self care. I would say we need more of this not less of it. I just took a self care day, hung out with a dear friend and we had a blast. It just exactly what I needed.

    The cancel culture run wild

    Handmaid's Tale author Margaret Atwood is branded transphobic for sharing newspaper op-ed blasting gender neutral language that's used to replace the word 'woman' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10110001/Handmaids-Tale-author-Margaret-Atwood-branded-transphobic-row-gender-neutral-language.html Now another author who fought to be highly regarded is about to be canceled. I don't understand why biologically born humans cannot be called women. I am sorry you weren't born female, but, why take my gender from me? The weirdest part to all this is knowing quite a few transitioning individuals, the female to male just quietly go though their transition. It is the male to female who push to justify their transition. Just become who you want, let me respect you as a person, don't try to tell me I can't be a mom or a woman.

  13. "A GROUP of men who dress in women's clothing to raise money claim they have been told their fundraising is potentially offensive by charity bosses. Members and supporters of Upton Rugby Club have dressed in drag for the Leo Sayer All Dayer, and also held other fundraisers for 18 years, to raise more than £40,000 for St Richard's Hospice. But the group claim they have been told their latest efforts cannot by promoted by the hospice because it might offend the LGBT community. June Patel, St Richard's chief executive, said they appreciated the group's fundraising but were 'striving to be mindful of equality, diversity and inclusion." https://www.worcesternews.co.uk/news/19657416.st-richards-warn-men-dressing-womens-clothes-fundraiser-offensive/ Sigh.

  15. The company plans to announce the new name next week, the Verge reported, citing a source with direct knowledge of the matter. Facebook wants to be known for more than social media, according to the tech publication. Facebook (FB) does not comment on rumor or speculation, a company spokesperson said in response to a question about the potential name change. In addition to its flagship social media network, Facebook also owns Instagram and WhatsApp. A name change could position the three mega platforms under an umbrella brand, similar to the structure used by Google, which sits under parent company Alphabet. https://edition.cnn.com/2021/10/20/tech/facebook-name-change/index.html

    I basically moved on to an Agnostic. Made peace with the idea that there is no concrete evidence at this point in humanity one way or the other for or against gods. I have no qualms with Atheism. For me, the most we have is personal accounts/ testimonies/reports stating a feeling of inner-connection, or being awestruck which is defined as being filled with awe this feeling can result from a multitude of situations whether one believes in a god or not. Many times in my life I have experienced being awestruck, at the birth of my kids, communing in nature, having a great conversation with a friend, spending time with my loved ones, eating an amazing meal, meditation and moments in my line of work have filled me with awe. I conclude that is a feeling and common to being human. And, I am okay with this, but am open to evidences and would refine if the facts point to something otherwise.
  17. Social media users think they could have seen Bigfoot or a werewolf after a video of a mystery beast was hailed 'evidence'. The eery clip shows a hulking figure running across a back garden and it has some believers sure of what they've seen. Uploaded to TikTok by user Connor Flynn, his account has been inundated after the so-far unexplained black and white encounter. He captioned it: "Werewolf or sasquatch?" and users quickly waded into the debate. UK Mirror
  18. There are new sheriffs in town in Singapore, and they are unnerving many who live there. Called "Xavier," the robots are equipped with seven cameras that enable them to detect "undesirable social behaviour," for instance if you incorrectly park your bike, if you smoke in an unauthorised area or if social distancing is not being respected. According to project manager Michael Lim, these machines are a new weapon against insecurity. "If the robot is around and something happens, the people in the control room will have a trace and will be able to see what happened”, he said. https://www.euronews.com/next/2021/10/08/new-robots-patrolling-for-anti-social-behaviour-causing-unease-in-singapore-streets?

  21. On 21st August 1911, in Paris, an artist called Louis Béroud was setting up an easel in the Louvre with the intention of sketching the gallery where the ‘Mona Lisa’ resided. He noticed the painting was missing and assumed it had been taken to be photographed (the Louvre photographed their paintings on the roof in natural light). However, in the name of his art, Béroud insisted on waiting for the ‘Mona Lisa’ and asked the guards about its return. Surprisingly, they knew nothing about it. The pin dropped, alarms bells started ringing, and the frame was found in an empty staircase. It had taken more than 24 hours for anyone to notice the empty hooks on the wall and the Louvre closed for a week. The nation was outraged but, “the art heist of the century” was pretty rudimentary. https://impactnottingham.com/2021/10/the-mona-lisa-the-heist-that-made-the-masterpiece/
  22. In total, 22 animals had to be put down or died following their rescue from Geoffrey Bennett’s farm. The 68-year-old left two starving ponies suffering with disease caused by parasites and a goat that was so ill it collapsed in its pen. All those animals were so sick they had to be put down by vets when Hurst Farm in Ripley, Surrey, was raided by police in January 2019. Despite receiving urgent treatment, another 14 horses that had been weakened by worms and parasitic disease died. Two dogs, a goat, a chicken and a duck also died, the RSPCA said. Telegraph report at MSN
  23. Sky was an interesting anomaly. He fought hard against the "We never went to the Moon" conspiridiots using science and logic and his own experience. But when it was about UFO's, all of that went out the window, and he just bought into any old anecdote - if it came from someone claiming to be a pilot, he was just instantly convinced... Anyway, sounds like someone is short of money and needs to drum up interest so they can get a paid interview or UFO convention spot..

  25. Hail to this brave soul YUMA COUNTY, Ariz. – A Marine veteran was caught on video this week disarming a gun-wielding robber at an Arizona gas station. The incident went down at a Chevron located at 10747 E. North Frontage Road around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office. Three suspects can be seen on video surveillance footage entering the gas station and one of them is armed with a handgun. “The armed suspect walked next to a store customer while pointing the weapon toward the cashier when the customer acted immediately and disarmed him,” deputies said in a press release. “The other two suspects fled the area when they witnessed their fellow criminal stopped.” That customer turned out to be a veteran who told deputies “the Marine Corps taught me not to [mess] around.” The veteran, who was not identified by deputies, detained the suspect he disarmed until law enforcement officers arrived on the scene.

  26. I would think they certainly could, especially the families of those that died or became ill. This is some real crazy stuff man, it almost makes me feel like there may have been some form of tampering. The reason I post this was because it possible some of our members could have this crap in a closet, hopefully not!
  27. Were dinosaurs unfeeling scaly brutes or caring, well behaved and intelligent? This debate has continued since dinosaurs were first discovered 200 years ago, and has spilled over into the movies and popular consciousness. In seeking to answer questions like this, palaeontologists generally look at the nearest living relatives, in this case crocodilians and birds. Do we see dinosaurs as exhibiting complex social behaviour like modern birds, or perhaps more rudimentary habits, as seen in crocodiles and alligators? Dinosaurs were originally perceived as brutish, perhaps cannibalistic, and certainly lacking the brain power or inclination to care for their young. Then, in the 1970s and 1980s, Jack Horner and his colleagues pioneered a new view in their studies of Maiasaura, a plant-eating dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous (77 million years ago) of Montana. https://theconversation.com/a-social-species-newly-discovered-fossils-show-early-dinosaurs-lived-in-herds-170245 https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-99176-1

  32. This is the moment anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorists turn up at Colchester Hospital waving homemade legal papers citing the 'Nuremberg Code' at medics and accusing them of complicity in made-up Covid 'plandemic' crimes. Video posted to Twitter apparently shows Michael Chaves and Jamie Freeman serving hospital staff with bogus legal notices about the Nuremberg Code and 'crimes against humanity'. The conspiracy theorist in charge hands a female NHS medic several large brown envelopes, including one containing 'all the evidence to prove that coronavirus is an absolute plandemic hoax'.

    You are BANNED! (Part 9)

    Banned for that reminded me of a cow... I mean, Karen, who was driving behind me this morning. The morning as dark as it was doomsday yesterday, because of the *censored* daylight *censored* saving *censored* time. Daylight can't be saved. Days are long in the summer and short in winter. Stop fiddling with the god damned clock. So the cow, I mean Karen, is driving with her brand new LED high beams on, trying to climb up my clunkers and no, I wasn't too slow because it's damn steep downhill road, where any turd can roll down at racing speed. If you don't mind mowing down pedestrians, cats and wild life. Long story short

I don't know if there's a higher resolution image around, but here's what happens when I zoom it: Anybody spot the difference between my image and the other one? Mine looks like an eager minecraft wolf puppy, I reckon. Thing is, there are lots of enlarging algorithms out there that will give different results because most of them use different guessing systems - they make **** up. The only true enlargement is the one that shows the pixels. IE MINE. So yeah, amateur enlarging has invalidated the image (aka ruined, aka fu... never mind) and, it's just pareidolia.

  41. An Arizona woman is celebrating a big blessing after she recently gave birth to a healthy, 14-pound baby boy. She and her husband Tim said their new baby is a miracle. The parents of two sons had been trying to have another child unsuccessfully since last year. They suffered two miscarriages along the way, and lost 17 other pregnancies prior to having their 2-year-old. Despite heartbreak after heartbreak, the couple pushed forward. Cary delivered a whopper of a little brother last Monday. Finnley, now 10 days old, came out at an amazing 14.1 pounds. The average newborn weighs around half that. He's also tall, at nearly 24 inches. Needless to say the doctors who delivered him were impressed. https://abc7chicago.com/14-pound-baby-born-arizona-woman-has-14-lb-in-biggest-babies/11131607/

    If you make a claim with no supporting evidence then I don’t need to provide evidence to counter-claim it as false. It is not about whether your argument is actually true or false—it very well may be true, but the fact is that I don’t carry the obligation to provide evidence for my counter-claim if you have not provided evidence for your initial claim. I also don’t have to accept the possibility of it to be true if you provide no grounds for such.

    Self Esteem and Religion

    You know I am Buddhist Docy, according to my spirituality there is no Heaven or Hell. Our existence is part of wheel known as the Dharma Wheel. We are born we live our lives and we die then we are born again in a repeating cycle. The purpose of this rebirth ( Reincarnation ) is so that we can grow and improve ourselves until someday we are worthy of the next journey ( Enlightenment or Nirvana ). Once we reach Nirvana our rebirth ends and we are beings of pure energy. Now, I am not an experienced Buddhist and there are many parts of the Buddhist Philosophy I still do not understand. Just like you and your question above, does Heaven Exist. Well the only thing that matters is that you believe that it and Jesus both exist. Your spirituality gives you strength when you need it, and there is nothing more valuable than that or more important than. Don't ever give up your beliefs no matter what anyone else says, your spirituality is yours and no one or nothing can take that away from you. People as you know ridicule people for being spiritual and that must just be over looked, because people always redicule what they can't understand. You cant let anyone effect your beliefs, because those who try have nothing to turn too when they are in need and find comfort in trying to make others unhappy like them. The answer to your question about there being a heaven or in my case reincarnation we will just have to wait and see. But until it's our time to go our faith in our spirituality will continue to give us strength and if there is nothing at the end we will never know it, so there is no reason to lose faith in your beliefs. Docy, it sounds like your having a sad time. Maybe go to Church, or contact family from all the posts you make on this forum I believe your a good person with a good heart. All I can say is your Spirituality has given you the strength to come this far, it has comforted you when nothing else did there is no reason to doubt it now! Peace Docy and take Care you know the answer, you have obviously always known.

    How is religion not egocentric? Devout individuals place themselves as being important enough that God will listen to them. All actions they take are driving by the reward center of their brain (I will get into heave if (insert thing here)).
