I was being facetious.

Ok. But by posting something on a forum, the readers can't tell the facetiousness as easily as noticing the sarcasm in a face to face conversation

I also think you're right about the video's potential as a promotional tool for global warming activists.

Yes. It's clearly propaganda

At the same time, I still find it sad.

I understand. What I find most sad is the enslavement of humanity through the Great Reset agenda, using lies about the environment and the nature of consciousness as excuses for this agenda

The post was more to stir-up discussion than to promote my personal viewpoint.

Fair enough. Try to make the sarcasm more clear next time though
 
I've written about that exact subject in a few of my papers. The point was that you can easily go astray if you don't have an independent means to validate information provided by purported psychics.

Does it really matter if psychics, who are generally full of shit, partner up with remote viewers of the end of the world happening in whatever year? Both are generally full of shit and trying to make a dollar!

I suppose I should have used some kind of an emoji instead of an exclamation mark — but not many to choose from here. My assumption that it was fairly obvious was in error. Maybe if you keep hanging around you'll get more used to the way I communicate. So just to be clear — you don't believe the polar bears? Because I was recently at a polar bear convention, and they were so concerned that they're trying a new PR campaign.

What If Global Warming Is a Hoax?

The problem is that we have become a society whose ‘ideas‘ have outstripped our ability to ability to suffer hardships that might come with bringing those ideas to reality. We have also demonstrated how authoritative many of our leaders are willing to be.

For me this (kind of) shows evidence that life has purpose and is challenging and backs up what NDEers often bring back from their life reviews. Life on earth as a human seems to me to be a rich environment where we have to learn to make wise thoughtful choices. By thoughtful I really mean more than simply logic and brainpower, knee jerk emotional reactions are bad news - time and effort are required which may bring intuition into action - when it is pure it is perhaps the true intelligence of the universe.

I have had only one really strange event happen to me that I can remember. After my stroke I started meditating, I never read much about it - something in me went ‘start meditating’ - so I did. This drive lasted around three and a half years when I meditated every day for around an hour.

Once early on we had been visiting a friend that lived near Manchester in the Uk. This friend had had a really hard time of it for a long time, and things didn’t appear to be getting any better. So I felt compassion for him and his family when I returned home. I went to meditate in the afternoon and usually I didn’t think of anything, rather trying to calm my mind. On this occasion i guess the meditation became more like a prayer, I prayed that my friend‘s pain would ease. After an hour or more of ‘praying’ I experienced something unusual. I describe it as having a ‘sausage machine’ in my head but instead of spewing sausage meat - letters came out of it -
H e l e n S t r i c k l a n d.

I had no idea who this person was or what she might do, but I googled her name and found the name highlighted as a Counsellor , specialising in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) - perfect for my friend imo. However, she was based in Southampton - a long way from Manchester. Long story short - he was never going to get help, certainly not from someone miles away!

However this perhaps was an example of real help coming from ‘the universe’ - but I didn’t work at directing it with focus and with enough ‘facts‘ to pinpoint exactly where the help was required. Maybe I should have pursued it further with meditation, but with little positive energy coming from both my friend and a reply to an email I sent Helen Strickland, I dropped it.

But it was to get me thinking. What if someone were obsessed with a problem, had been working on it for months or even years - is not history full of examples of ‘discoveries’ by scientists that ‘came to them‘ at unexpected times or ways?
 
The problem is that ...

I think you make some really great points. When I ran across the cartoon, it made me think a little deeper than usual, because at first it looks like it makes perfect sense. However, as you suggest, all those noble causes.come at a cost of their own, and some really good alternatives to the ones we've been fed so far have IMO not been given the consideration they deserve, e.g. Bjørn Lomborg.

Notice how YouTube has started nudging little safe thinking inserts under videos with contentious issues that might not fit the mainstream narrative? It's very ironic since Google hosted the talk for the video below ( from way back in 2007 ).

We all have intestines and I'd like to think most people are aware of what the contain. That goes for yours as well as any "psychic" you care to name.

As for your intended meaning, I'll dispute your assertion that "psychics [are] generally [dishonest] and [employing confidence schemes to defraud gullible victims]".

This rewording of your statement captures your sentiment and that of many others who comment on this subject. Built into the statement are at least 3 fallacies. The first is that you understand the definition of "psychic". Second, that there is no such thing as a genuine psychic. Third, fake psychics, the only variety from your perspective, are invariably thieves.

The literature of psi shows that people described as "psychics" can be divided into those who market themselves as such and others who do not but have demonstrated psi phenomena. Your comment only applies to the subset of the first group who have no proven psi ability. These appear to be plentiful but whether they are a majority or even a significant percentage of persons to whom psi ability is attributed would be impossible to say. This is similar to the situation with counterfeit money: no amount of counterfeits proves that genuine currency does not exist.

The literature provides many examples of what appear to be genuine psi. Genuine psi, it should be noted, only superficially resembles purported examples provided by professional skeptics, like the late James Randi. The character of genuine psi is so far removed from the way it is portrayed by skeptics and the media that it is easy to see how the audience for that information would believe that there is no such thing as genuine psi. This is because the Tarot-reading, séance-conducting, fortune-teller, or psi-magician stereotypes are not genuine psychics. If you were to read the literature, particularly books by Ian Stevenson, Raymond Moody, and others (even my own book on psychic dreams)you should be able to recognize the important differences between the fakes and the genuine.

I once had to retrieve some money from a fake psychic who had swindled a close friend. There is no doubt in my mind that the "psychic" was both fake and swindler. That does not explain other psi events and the people associated with them, where no financial, personal, or social goal is present.

This cartoon only makes sense if actions taken to deal with climate change actually improve the world. This also presumes that the betterment of "the world" has no serious detrimental effect on mankind.

As I see it, actions taken this year and last by the person currently occupying our White House, and other politicians around the world, have proven how harmful climate change related policies are. Therefore, the measures they take do not create a better world, regardless whether Climate Change is a real danger.

Andy, I know that genuine psi phenomenon does exist. I experienced this several times myself. The most notable example was when I traveled to New York. I was in New York, in the summer of 99. A Belgium woman, who lived in Brooklyn, New York, purchased me for a few months to live in her flat and visit with members of her French community. Thankfully, she had site seeing in mind. She took me to a few key locations, namely, the Statue of Liberty and the Twin Towers.

Originally, I was from the San Francisco Bay Area. Granted, San Francisco has several impressive building, but nothing like the Twin Towers. I was absolutely mind blown by these buildings. I clearly remember sitting between the two on a bench. My handler at the time, the Belgium woman, said she had some things to do and left me at the bench for a good half an hour. I spent the time looking up at the buildings in amazement. I paid particular attention to what looked like diamond shaped windows. I don't can't remember if the glass was diamond shaped, but the architecture made them appear to be diamond shaped.

That night, when I went to sleep, I had a terrible nightmare that they were completely destroyed. I couldn't tell what destroyed them, but in the dream, it was as if they were exploded from within. The dream was so absolutely real that I believed they were gone when I woke up. Nevertheless, I woke up, and looked out the window of the secondary flat of my handler. Certainly, they were still there, and I thought to myself: fuck dreams, they are stupid. After the Belgium woman tired of my existence, I went back to California. Not too long later, the fucking buildings got destroyed!

This is just one example. The other example is the Georgia Guide Stones. This wasn't a dream, but somewhat kind of premonition. Three days before they were destroyed, I thought to myself, suddenly, one night.....look up the Georgia Guide Stones. I saw these pictures of people vandalizing it with red paint. Immediately, I thought to myself, "Somebody is going to bomb that shit!"

Next thing you know, the structure is destroyed. I don't know if it was bombed. I find it very strange, in the live footage of the explosion, it looks like there is a light in the background that seems to increase in size prior to the explosion, then the explosion happens.

In conclusion, I am not saying that I don't believe in psi phenomenon. Nevertheless, I believe that people "false flag" psi phenomenon all the time for monetary gain.
