    Nothing wrong with opinions! We all speculate and “feel.”

    I liked it also. Alex touched upon something I was thinking throughout the whole show when he said something along the lines of contradictory information and/or differing perspectives from all the information we get from different spiritual sources. The last several months I’ve been big into...

    I came across this after searching Buddhist/Hindu deprivation rituals after reading Alex’s post here. I came across this. The Monk ritual of sokushinbutsu, in northern Japan. In this ritual of “self-mummification” the monk would undergo an extremely vigorous exercise program and eat nothing but...

    Mark Booth, Secret History Includes Angels and Demons |396|

    This is the part of Atwills thesis which I struggle with as well. The morality of the New Testament is strikingly incredible. It’s occurred to me that one couldn’t write it without believing it. And if one believed it, it’s hard to imagine them using it against people. UNLESS, they convinced...

    Mark Booth, Secret History Includes Angels and Demons |396|

    You’re right, that was one of the most disturbing and frightening books I’ve ever read. For everybody else, this book closely covers (I think it was 5) possessions and exorcisms of contemporary Americans. The author, Father Malachi Martin, himself an exorcist, went into detail on five exorcisms...

    Mark Booth, Secret History Includes Angels and Demons |396|

    When I was a Christian I was quite obsessed with demonology for several years. I read a lot of books on the topic and swallowed up as many accounts of encounters as I could. There’s really no doubt that people experience what they call “demons.” If you study “demonology” in the same way you...

    Jan Van Ysslestyne, Why Shamans Don’t Do iPhones |395|

    I suppose that if I were a Christian, this is probably what I would believe. If you’re a Christian, you really need to give God a big hand in this.

    , I think a lot of ID’ers might be averse to the idea that form has progressed at all, largely because their Bible tells them that Jehova caused all forms to exist in one breath, on whatever day of the week which the mythology in Genesis states. I think this takes away from important...

    Jan Van Ysslestyne, Why Shamans Don’t Do iPhones |395|

    The reason that I feel that we MAY have a hand in this process of evolution isn’t becase people encounter hominids during Astral trips/drug trips/ET encounters. Rather I sort of surmise this to be the case because Quantum mechanics might be telling us that our thoughts effect matter, the placebo...

    Yahweh looks cool on a cloud. I see no reason to think that he wouldn’t look cool in a lab coat. In all seriousness though, I tend to wonder if WE ourselves have not played a roll in shaping the evolution of physical form here through conscious and/or subconscious thought. Perhaps we are doing...

    Jan Van Ysslestyne, Why Shamans Don’t Do iPhones |395|

    This is the explanation which I tend to favor. It’s also possible that ET are sitting on another planet here in our universe and are entering these realms just as we are. But I find that explanation less likely. But, I also consider both explanations to be likely highly insufficient, just in the...

    The beginning of the show (the drumbeats) got me thinking of two events which occurred in my life which convinced how deeply spiritual music/sound is. I guess in sense EVERYTHING is “spiritual” but there is something special about sounds/music. I’ve never seen any ghosts/crytpids/UFOs. I don’t...

    John Brisson, Fix Your Gut Health and Slide-rule Science |394|

    I’ve never quite understood people who feel we should believe idealism a-priori. But I still like guys like Bernardo pushing it simply because it opposes materialism, which I think is extraordinarily depressing and has, quite probably, left a lot of people feeling depressed and that everything...

    That’s true I think. Idealism is too much of a jump for most people. For people who think like most of us do here however, it isn’t so far fetched. My biggest problem with Idealism is what does it mean exactly? It’s the same issue I have with stating that this is a simulation. A simulation in...

    I agree, it’s a loaded term which almost suggests that one is crazy if they question the official explanation.

    I would say yes and no. People believe what they want to. That is to say, people use their beliefs to shape data instead of using data to shape their beliefs. But I guess it really comes down to the conspiracy in question and the nature of the “data.” But I actually use that very same argument...

    Agree with Steve. We’re all wrong in our beliefs in certain areas. Whatever his opinion on climate change, I’m not sure why anybody would think that would make his eye witness reports any less valuable.

    Tim Freke & Richard Cox, UFOs, 9-11, Climate And Truth |391|

    I would say that science gave us flying machines etc., and that science and materialism are two distinct things, even if mainstream academia would try to tell us otherwise.

    Or...maybe.....JUST MAYBE.....he sees the the world a little differently than you. You can say that this view seems particularly silly to you, as I think that some of his views are strange. But to (out of nowhere) make the baseless and absurd claim that he’s bullshitting to make money (in the...

    Paraconsistent Logic and Its Potential for Usefulness

    Using hard cold logic, and hard cold logic only is really for the robots and cannot be successfully squared with the human experience. Feelings, emotions, and mystical experiences are just as valid as mathematics. I’d even be willing to state that they may be more valid in a number of ways...
