    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Well so far I have only listened to a small portion of the video. I heard one strange mistake. She said that the size of the human genome is 135 TB, and the true figure is 1.5 GB - about 100,000 times smaller - but conceivably the total mass of annotated output from the Human Genome Project came...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Who was the dodgy anti-vaxer? There are certainly different 'strengths' of conspiracy theories, ranging from "They haven't done enough testing" through to "The vaccine was designed and encouraged to spread as it has, and this is part of a reset-2021 plot which will cull the population back and...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Fundamentally, I think they aren't conventional vaccines, so they should be treated as experimental treatment, and you don't go round injecting everyone on the planet with something like that! I have a friend who is a former biochemist. Because he is 80, he has been innoculated, but his view is...

    Doubts about the moon landings

    I very much hope the lunar landings were real. I guess that argument sounds reasonably convincing - thank goodness - but what shocked me was that all three astronauts behaved so gauchely when asked to swear they went to the moon, and that they were very wooden when asked about visible stars...

    Doubts about the moon landings

    I was very upset by the bit at the end, where all three astronauts refused to swear on the Bible that they had gone to the moon. There was also clips of a press conference where someone asked about seeing the stars. Even Collins (the man is supposed to have stayed in orbit round the moon) said...

    Doubts about the moon landings

    I came across this on another website - I don't really know what to make of it. David

    Union of the Unwanted : 25 : Near Death Experiences | The After Life

    Thanks Robbedigital - that is a fascinating discussion. Of course, I am broadly familiar with much of this stuff, but here are some highlights: I was struck by the man who had an LSD trip and fell and died. So he had a confused LSD trip, followed by an NDE with the typical super-clear...

    Forum Borealis: Alex “Skeptiko” Tsakiris - EVIL (Pt. 1 of 2: A Rose by any other Name)

    However the problem is, if several people want to define consciousness and/or evil, they probably won't agree on a definition - even though they basically mean the same thing. That is why I rather went off the idea of defining concepts like this. Why is evil only semi-hard - I mean is it easier...

    Bart, You have just posted a video that is unavailable in my country (despite the fact that we are all affected by this monster). David

    Forum Borealis: Alex “Skeptiko” Tsakiris - EVIL (Pt. 1 of 2: A Rose by any other Name)

    That would mean that actions like winning an argument - say about which movie to watch - would be an act of micro-evil! David

    Forum Borealis: Alex “Skeptiko” Tsakiris - EVIL (Pt. 1 of 2: A Rose by any other Name)

    I'm not sure. We had a lot of discussions about consciousness where materialists would say, "you need to define consciousness before you can talk about it". That sounds almost inarguable, but in practice the materialists would come up with something that made consciousness sound like a control...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    That is a very accurate description of the evolution of science, and I wonder what sort of audience you fed it to since you say that their comments recognised that science has changed profoundly. It is also interesting that they realised that science pushed aside data on psychic topics...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Well if you want to compare Indian numbers to UK numbers (say) you really have to divide them by 23 because our population is that much smaller. The media are doing the usual trick of just publishing the absolute numbers. David

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Since they insist on calling positive tests, 'cases'. Could this be that they are looking for m-RMA for the spike protein, and of course they find it! Also something that is unclear to me is that when an RT-PCR test is run, does it somehow sweep out all the DNA in the sample before transcribing...

    Goodness Alex, you must be marinated in the Bible to be able to write stuff like that. Have you taken up biblical scholarship? David

    THC -- The Higherside Chats: Alex Tsakiris | Scientism, Spirituality, & Why Evil Matters

    My partner started life behind the iron curtain, leaving in her teens. That gives me an interesting perspective about a lot of this. She hated the USSR, but by now I think we both have considerable sympathy with Russia, which seems to be tarred with the brush of socialism, even though it threw...

    Higherside Chats, 4/28/2021

    I suggest it would be good to add some references at the bottom of that post - one for each fact. I think Dr Kendrick's blog and books are massively enhanced because he fully references everything. Also, remember that there are so-called 'fact checkers' that try to suppress the truth. "Chester...

    THC -- The Higherside Chats: Alex Tsakiris | Scientism, Spirituality, & Why Evil Matters

    You can always choose one of the main categories and start your own thread! For example, here is one I started a good while ago: http://www.skeptiko-forum.com/threads/behes-argument-in-darwin-devolved.4317/ Alex's podcasts are important, but there is more going on in Skeptiko than that. David
