Hi Hammer

Looks to me like there is some room for potential and hell if there is an Atlantis on Mars then why not a Chicago too.:lol:

 

There are 2 places named Chicago in America.

There are 2 places named Chicago in Mexico.

There is one place named Chicago in Philippines.

There is one place named Chicago in Nicaragua.

There is one place named Chicago in Mozambique.

There is one place named Chicago in Guatemala.

There is one place named Chicago in Belize.

My family has history with Chicago, Southside. Where I'm from is called " Little Chicago" in the crime magazines because so many of it's more colorful denizens retired here to spend the ill-gotten booty. "You ain't from Chicago" is a slur, more telling if it happens to also be true.

I'd agree that Hab and psyche are entrenched at the opposite ends of the spectrum, but I think that's where the similarities end.  If you disagree with Psyche or just want to know where he's coming from, he can provide it.  I can understand how he got to his position, regardless of whether I personally come to the same conclusion from the same evidence, because he explains it in detail. 

I'd agree with you guys though that Hab I think has more potential than some of our 'other team' posters.  I just wish he'd engage with the argumentation instead of dropping one-two sentence restatements of his position that seem more defensive than anything.  There's no reason to keep the shields up, he can drop them, we're not firing photon torpedoes and full phasers.  We just naturally take sensor readings of everything here, and maybe at worst just wanna beam over a couple tribbles for him to think about.

Your first sentence nailed it, although it only once was true for Psyche, as he's moderated his outlook, without necessarily yielding reason to folly. He and I use to slug it out in the trenches and he's earned my respect and friendship and I don't make friends, easily. Friends are people you can say what you think to, without them going ballistic over it; well, at least, to me. Habbie's a work in progress, a believer in denial of his own belief. I suppose, in some quarters, it's a slur to be called one.

I'm really coming to believe, perhaps understand that it's all about control. At least a sense of it. Religion, magick, the law of attraction. All revolving around "controlling circumstance".

Anyone who figures it out will likely be raised up as a new religious figure. :devil:

Scientology, anyone?

In case there was ever any doubt, I gave that as an example that makes as much sense as any religion (or far far less)...  Some fiction writer makes up a ludicrous story about alienz, and then a whole pile of scammers, sadists, thieves and general scum use it to fleece the gullible, or remove money from actors and the filthy rich by stroking their egos.  I can no longer watch tom cruise or john revolter. without puking

But, ask me what I really think....

Maybe he was turned into a political puppet maybe Nazi's used people to get him angry and start a slaughter maybe we have some of this wrong and if there was any witnesses still alive they probably were a child back so how could we know if they were telling the truth we physical proof of what he did some people can't be trusted with words alone.

Really think about it don't rely on people at first assume that they are lying until the truth comes because believe me the truth always comes out sooner or later whether we like or not

Pretty much. Either its the rage, are they only seek to further reinforce their own beliefs.

That whole, "I need something to hate."

It's also partly investment psychology. By a certain age we have invested a lot of time energy and passion into our beliefs.

Many people hate losing more than they enjoy winning and subsequently they’ll do anything to put off a loss.

This would be more akin to belief perseverance. Where no matter the reality of the thing, the belief is much stronger. It creates emotional turmoil. People will either fight against any information that contradicts their beliefs or accept this new information.

Haven't been able to stomach those two for years. Especially Travolta who murdered his own son and got away with it.
