    Alex, you are not being very skeptical in this case. So unlike you.

    Dr. Jeffery Martin, Can He Transition Our Ego-Centric Culture? |456|

    There is no there there. A paper from 1997, that's it. He may be legit, but sure has a lot of red flags. I'm all for making money, but don't pretend to be something you are not. No peer reviewed publication of his measurable results. Harvard affiliation from taking one online course, from...

    Dr. Jeffery Martin, Can He Transition Our Ego-Centric Culture? |456|

    I agree. I considered taking his course but after some internet searches I could not find any information that was not totally subjective, and that his terms being measured were too vague to get any idea of his course's effectiveness beyond self help therapy. The money and time being asked...

    Grimerica - Alex Tsakiris - Why Evil Matters

    Think about all the time and effort to produce a vaccine. Now what happens when the virus burns itself out? Do you think the vaccine will just sit there unused? Probably will be promoted as a prevention for future infection, infection by a virus that no longer infects.

    Rick DeLano’s Terrific Quantum Science Film Tainted by Catholic Nonsense |454|

    I listened to Rick's interview on Reason and Theology and a few impressions. He describes the collapse of wave function as being caused by interaction with measuring device, where as it is not just the device, but the observation of the information by a conscious being that is key. His view...

    Dr. Tom Zinser, Clinical Psychologist on Difference Between Darkness and Evil |451|

    Another interesting question is what is the rest of your higher self doing while part of it is in this reality? Is it just sitting offline, like we are when sleeping? Isn't this what Newton says in his past lives books?

    Chris Knowles, The Descent Into Evil Thinking |450|

    I understand your point. Similiar to using a spell to heal a person without their knowledge. I don't know if this is possible with ritual magic as I am not very familiar with it. Even John Michael Greer, who seems to be a nice and intelligent guy, has recommended/tramslated books that require...

    Chris Knowles, The Descent Into Evil Thinking |450|

    But part of evil is wanting to impose your will on another being, even if they benefit. Prayer is sending love to that person, but it is their choice to accept or deny it. Prayer is an offer, occult magik or rituals is a command. These are the different walls.

    Chris Knowles, The Descent Into Evil Thinking |450|

    If you went to your friends house for a party, then found out he was passing around cocaine, you didn't participate, then never went back, how are you the bad guy? If there is no evidence that beforehand knowledge or of level of participation it is better not to speculate one way or another...

    Chris Knowles, The Descent Into Evil Thinking |450|

    thanks for this very insightful and thoughtful post... maybe we can cover this in chunks. What if one were to videotape a ceremony. If a spirit were to show up, then we would know if it is only mental or both mental and shared physical. If it didn't show up we would know either the ceremony...

    Chris Knowles, The Descent Into Evil Thinking |450|

    What would be interesting is getting a group of about 20 interested but objective participants, and having them regressed. They would be required to fill out a questionnaire in advance to determine their expectations, familiarity, and knowledge of the "unknown", videotape the entire session...

    Matthew Alper, Have Skeptics Lost Their Edge? |448|

    If free will exist then there are entities that have some control over the experiences they are aware of and can recall. If lack of empathy is a limitation of what the entity can experience, as blindness prevents the experience of colors for others, then the choices of this entity is limited to...

    There once was a materialist named Mat Who thought that his views were all that Consciousness he said Is all in your head Because I can knock you out with this bat

    Matthew Alper, Have Skeptics Lost Their Edge? |448|

    Mat the materialist says that consciousness is a sequence of members of a subset of the set of all possible brain configurations. Mat says that when a particular sequence of this subset, consciousness, is present we experience the image of a brain and its' interactions. All the ideas, models...
