  1. QAnon is not the only movement getting worked up over Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis. Conspiracy theorists on the extreme fringe also suspect that Trump—who they believe might be an immortal alien—might have contracted coronavirus in an attempt to shed his mortal flesh and shapeshift into something else. Steenberg started an online petition three years ago called “Disclose: Humanoid Extra Terrestrials Live Among Us.” His website highlights the bulk of his theories and with nearly 30,000 Twitter followers and over 10,000 signatures on his petition, Steenberg is confident he knows the truth.

  7. A school has won a court battle, allowing it to use electric shock devices on students. The Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Massachusetts, US, reportedly introduced the controversial practice to deal with aggressive or self-harming behaviour in adults and children. The US Food and Drug Administration had previously banned the use of such devices, however, a 2-1 ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit saw the ban overturned. According to the school's website, it caters for 'both emotionally disturbed students with conduct, behaviour, emotional, and/or psychiatric problems, as well as those with intellectual disabilities or on the autism spectrum'. Parents and guardians of pupils, as well as the school itself, are said to be pleased with the ruling. https://www.ladbible.com/news/news-school-wins-legal-battle-to-electric-shock-children-20210708 https://www.reuters.com/legal/litigation/dc-circuit-overturns-fda-ban-shock-device-disabled-students-2021-07-06/
  8. Even more problematic are the facts that Pontius Pilate, as a Roman Prefect, was under no obligation to mete out any punishment in support of Jewish law or custom and the name “Barabbas”, strictly speaking, means “son of the father” convoluting the story even further.

  10. The number of deaths by COVID19 in the USA will rise to the point that whole cities will be blocked: no one in, no one out; Because of this the already volatile situation in the US will give birth to massive outbreaks of violence. Just a bit short of a civil war; Some self promoted 'messiah' will stir the masses, but will be gunned down, as is tradition in the US; China takes advantage of the situation in the US, and will send warships to Taiwan. It will be Russia who shall prevent this to escalate, with the help of Australia; We will receive odd signals from the direction of Saturn, or better, from one of its moons; A woman's head will be severed from her diseased body, and kept alive. She will be on tv, speaking to the people while being kept alive via a hearth-lung machine. It will be the Oprah Winfrey show where she will show up; Oprah Winfrey will be killed by some religious idiot who thinks that the 'talking severed head' is a blasphemy; Other religious idiots in the USA will destroy the containers where people are stored in cryogenic suspension (or whatever it is called in Angry-Saxon); A major archeaological discovery in the centre of the Amazonian rainforest. Erdogan, the president of Turkey, will be caught by an angry mob, and hanged in a plaza in the centre of Izmir; A famous Turkish businessman will be the new president, and the religious fanatics who had supported Erdogan will flee to the mountains; In some country - I can't see which one - a dam will burst, and the resulting flood will kill many villages; A very heavy earthquake in the Carpatians. Thousands will die; A cure will be found for rheumatism. A real cure, that is. Old people crippled by this disease will dance in the streets; Betelgeuse, a giant red star, finally explodes. It will be visible even during the day. People will be scared, but at the end it will turn out to be nothing but a beautiful heavenly spectacle. Of course not after thousands, under the spiritual guidance of yet another messianic nutcase, have killed themselves; Finally: nuclear fusion will be achieved. A company, called Convectron, will be the one publicly announcing their success. Their fusion process is based on bol lightning. They will also announce that it will make travelling to the stars a realistic goal. Why? They will announce another discovery... Thanks for your attention, and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

  20. Research published in Science The science stuff shows that crows have sensory consciousness, explained in the abstract: That corvids, and other birds, are smart is not a new idea, think Hugin and Munin, and in modern times I'm sure many of us have seen video evidence on documentaries and Youtube about just how smart they can be. The most famous example is that of the Caledonian crow Betty who was able to bend copper wire into a hook in order to pull food out of a cylinder. Since then she has been surpassed by other corvids showing even greater skills. The authors of this paper have for the first time been able to monitor neuronal activity during experiments in real time. Previously to measure brain activity a bird had to be trussed up and placed in a scanner, and as it wasn't engaged in any activity the results did not give a good idea normal brain activity when the bird was active. These results now put birds, corvids at least, into the same range as us and "higher" mammals such as apes, and researchers have been calling corvids "feathered apes" for a while now. This research ties in with other work done over the years that has shown that corvids have the ability to think about the future and plan. This involves food caches, but it is not a simple matter of hiding food for later, many animals do that, but how they do it and the deceptions they engage in. This research will cause us to have a re-think over animal intelligence and consciousness, and puts our "exceptionalism" in serious doubt, in fact I think the only difference between us and all other animals in intelligence is one of degree and application of that intelligence via the opposing thumb. What the researchers have not addressed, and that is because it is another subject, though related, is the extreme miniaturization of the avian brain which allows them to have proportionaly far more neurons than us, and by us that means all mammals as our neuron density is the same, and a higher density allows information to be moved faster within the brain. Pigeons have six times the density of neurons than us and can process information nearly 50% faster. Corvids have about 84 times the density of pigeons, but I have yet to see any experiments that have measured how fast information travels in their brains, perhaps because it will make us look "stupid". The avian brain is a modified coelurosaur brain, therefore related to the brain of the "raptors", which birds are anyway, and the tyranosaurs. So when a paleontologist points to the "crocodile like" T.rex brain and says this was a "dumb" animal, he cannot know what it's internal structure was like, and if was miniaturized. The insult "bird brain" has outlived it's usefulness, and, I suggest, "beast of the fields". We have long suffered a blind spot caused by scientific ignorance on the one hand, and a desire to separate us from the "beasts", partly for religious reasons.

    Americans Chanting “Death to America”

    And there we have it. The real reason for the protests. It's never been about reforming or defunding the police. The real reason is a bunch of spoiled children got brainwashed in college by America hating leftist professors. Their goal is to tear down the system and replace it with a leftist utopia otherwise known as hell on earth. They will fail.

    Nancy Pelosi and her hypocrisy

    You've probably heard about Nancy Pelosi breaching the lockdown regulations and getting her hair dressed in a Salon. What is more interesting is her reaction to the media learning about this. In essence, she has accused the salon of deliberately misleading her, telling her that it is "OK" to come in. (this despite it being illegal), and stating that the Salon "set her up". She has then got her very expensive lawyers to attack the Salon, and threatening them with a lawsuit. She has also arranged for the Salon to be shut down. Hell hath no fury like a Senior Democrat scorned. This illustration of petty vindictiveness, and the willingness to blame EVERYBODY except herself when she ELECTED to break the law, is just breathtaking. If President Trump had done this, CNN would be screaming it from the rooftops. But because it is Nancy Pelosi.... tumbleweed.

  24. Luxor, 19th century: Today: Karnak: Kom Ombo: Just a few examples for reference as to the state in which much of Egypt was found in modern times. Ruined and buried sometimes as much as 15-20ft. The Temple of Kom Ombo was built in the Ptolemaic Period between 180-47BC, a little more than 2,000yrs ago, yet look at the state in which it was found in the 19th century. Ruined and buried more than halfway up its columns. Luxor and Karnak, with construction lasting from the MK though the Late Period found 2,000yrs later buried more than halfway up their columns leaving the vast majority of these complexes completely obscured. By the Roman period, and perhaps long before, so much sand and debris had accumulated at Giza they apparently were unaware the Sphinx temple was even there. All over ancient Egypt we see the state in which these monuments were found in modern times in various states of ruin being partially or even completely buried under sand and debris. And this is often just after 2,000yrs. There are some, however, who believe these monuments were built by a lost civilization thousands of years before the beginning of Dynastic Egypt which we can only imagine the state the ancient Egyptians would have found them leaving it a wonder after so much time had passed they could have found much of them at all. Look again at this photo: The AE would have found Luxor, for example, after thousands of years even more buried than this which given the different climates of the ages waxing and waning from desert to savanna some of the layers would have been hard pack dirt not just sand. With perhaps the tip of the obelisk poking out of the ground, all of this would have been completely buried: So if in fact this was built by an LC thousands of before the Dynastic Egypt, the AE would have found it all but completely buried with barely the tops of the obelisks sticking out of the ground-assuming they were even still standing. If we accept such things were built by the LC so long ago, this means the AE would have had to have excavated this entire site for square miles all the way around to get it to its original floor level which would have included all roads to the site. Yet after thousands of years -what state did they find the structures? Something similar to Kom Ombo if not worse: So after completing the massive excavation project, the AE would have started the daunting task of repairing and rebuilding the site. Restacking columns. Resetting lintels some 50ft in the air. Lifting back up an obelisk or two. Yet much of these blocks were damaged requiring the AE to quarry new blocks to spec and install them in the place of their damaged ancient counterparts. From one end of the Nile to the other, for 3,000yrs, the AE set upon the unimaginable task of excavating site after site. Repairing and rebuilding one ancient structure after another. Billions of cubic yards of earth and sand they removed to clear site after site to floor level. Millions of tons of stone they moved to rebuild complex after complex-restoring toppled walls, erecting columns, setting fallen lintels. How many tons of repair block were they required to quarry, dress, move and install all to appear no different than the original blocks that at that time we are told were already thousands if not tens of thousands of years old. The AE do not speak at length about pyramid building-fair enough. But where are all the tales of their excavating countless sites up and down the Nile for 3,000yrs restoring the great civilization of the "Lost Ones"? Where did all the untold billions of cubic yards of dirt, sand, and debris go that is otherwise indistinguishable from the natural surroundings today? To look at Giza, after thousands of untold years, the Sphinx, temples, and mastaba fields etc. etc. would have completely disappeared under countless feet of dirt and sand yet the 4th-6th Dynasty AE somehow cleared it all to floor level. If all of these things were built by the LC thousands of years before the Dynastic Egyptians-how do we explain this? How were the AE able to excavate site after site after site moving untold billions of tons of earth and sand and repairing each site all but good as new?

  29. The first dinosaur butthole ever discovered is shedding light where the sun don't shine. The discovery reveals how dinosaurs used this multipurpose opening — scientifically known as a cloacal vent — for pooping, peeing, breeding and egg laying. The dinosaur's derrière is so well preserved, researchers could see the remnants of two small bulges by its "back door," which might have housed musky scent glands that the reptile possibly used during courtship — an anatomical quirk also seen in living crocodilians, said scientists who studied the specimen. Although this dinosaur's caboose shares some characteristics with the backsides of some living creatures, it's also a one-of-a-kind opening, the researchers found. Full article at Live Science: Link

  32. Yes i am aware that the handling of the covid pandemic is a source of bitter debate and conflict, there was never going to be a 100% best response that made everyone happy on the other hand its very depressing to me that a virus killing people has become a tool of an inept wanna-be politician to further his own angendas with no concerns for the lives he is costing along the way. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/10/19/coronavirus-trump-calls-fauci-a-disaster-says-people-are-tired-of-covid.html https://www.forbes.com/sites/jemimamcevoy/2020/10/19/trump-calls-dr-fauci-disaster-says-he-would-fire-him-it-werent-for-negative-press/amp/ A few days ago, fauci with no malicious intent kicked the hornets nest basically admitting trumps incompatance is why he and others caught covid at the rose garden shindig super spreader event. https://www.today.com/health/dr-fauci-absolutely-not-surprised-president-trump-got-covid-19-t195196 In his typical Megalomaniac revenge style trump who knows zero about infectious diseases calls fauci a disaster and idiot, and says he wants to fire him but even trump knows better than to do that. actually trump was just stating what is own grossly incompatant epic failure life costing response to covid has been. I really have no clue trumps motivations as i dont wear orange tinted glasses, but i am guessing he mistakenly believes that if he gets everything reopened and can try to take the focus off his imcomptance he can save the election by trying to help the ecomomy Thing is even if every restriction was lifted this moment its not going to return the country or the world to pre covid days overnight, the economy will have to trickle back, covid killed the great economy handed to trump but he helped by his disaster of a response to it, trying to swing the blame off himself and onto experts will just hurt things not help. Im all for reopening getting back to normal i miss playing guest shows or eating India food out im all for working, and if your job isnt there because your boss is playing it safe get a different job, i had to, no call for a button pushing monkey when people cant pack a club. We really need to put politics especially agenda based politics aside and come together as humans get through this together because being at odds isnt working is it? And no, i do not mean everyone bend a knee and worship trump his way or FU! His was isnt working he needs to come off the ego trip admit their are those wiser than himself that he should listen to and not some buttkiss smithers yes man. I know im speaking to some deaf ears i know some have a mindset of "screw em" if people die they die oh well, but for the rest of us we need to be a bit less selfish and selfcentered and realize if we do whats best for each other that is whats best for us too, it will circle back. Yeah, im a bit worried, if covid is ebbing and those who will die have then i guess the rising numbers dont matter too much, i dont have a lucky face i dont like seeing others hurt, and i would rather be safe than sorry in the next few months. I expect to be bashed and know from who. Soapbox over.

    Is America under attack ?

    There is an idea from the 1920's called 'Cultural Marxism'. The marxist thinkers of the time where puzzled that Europe seemed immune to a communist revolution. They theorised that social factors prevented the European prolatereat from rising up. These where: respect for family values, respect for the Church, and respect for government (and Monarchical) institutions. Their solution was Cultural Marxism; to gradually get their people into senior positions in universities, and use them to indoctrinate students to feel contempt for these three things. And to themselves become Professors, and to pass the indoctrination on. Hence, over the decades, these three ties that bind our society together would be weakened, paving the way for a communist revolution. Ever notice how - in the 1950's onward - most comedians and musicians became heavily anti-establishment, and highly critical of government and the church ? Then Marxism died, but Cultural Marxism - its Frankenstein Monster - carried on regardless. And it is still highly prelevant today, manifesting in everything from 3rd wave feminism to militant transgender rights, to promotion of Islam over Christianity (including by the current Pope).
  38. I agree. We see the same thing here in America. Hard work is one thing but hard work for slave wages is entirely another.

  46. 1) Science is self-correcting. 2) In science, a theory is an explanation for facts or natural phenomena that has been repeatedly confirmed through numerous methods. Despite the science-driven attempts to falsify major modern theories, they are rarely falsified. You may be confusing one of the principles of science. “Truth” is a matter not actually addressed in scientific research and the nebulous topic is best left to philosophers. 3) To detail: · Question : Acceptable · Research: Your first reference is not accessible. Your second reference is a Wiki page. Your third reference includes a very vague and temporally typical allusion to an astronomical event that can in no way be considered to be definitive. Very poor research. Fail. · Hypothesis: Conditionally acceptable. · Experiment: Utilizing Biblical genealogies of the relevant time period are of no worth in regards to establishing a utilizable date due to the grossly inaccurate calibrations of individual lifespans. Fail. · Analysis: Due to the highly flawed “data”, any analysis is pointless. Fail. · Conclusion: No ability to definitively support hypothesis. No credible corroborative data. Very poor research skills. Fail. It has been quite apparent that you are unfamiliar with legitimate research methodology. May this explain your fear of such? Edit: Format.
