Ebola may just be the saviour of mankind and of Mother Earth

If you look at humanity itself as a product of nature, your logic follows to the tune of claiming that if a human being has been diagnosed with cancer, it would be best not to try and cure it.

I was just asking for an explanation of what I've understood to be the base of Astrology. You say astrology may refer to something other than horoscopes, well what's being marketed as astrology IS horoscopes and I think that's what most people are criticizing since that IS being labeled as astrology. It seems that you're claiming something to the degree of 'well there may be something more to it, so don't criticize the superficial version', but you're not giving us any insight into your apparent esoteric knowledge of this subject.

^^ Ok so let's say we're not talking about generic newspaper horoscopes. In Astrology aren't people with identical birth dates supposed to be similar in personality and whatnot? Forgive me for my lack of knowledge about the subject but I've always understood that this was the case. In my previous post I asked a question about this. Do you have an answer?

A few more questions for the free market Libratarians.

No I haven't heard of those but I'll look them up.

I don't know if true free market capitalism has been attempted enough worldwide to declare success or failure, but I do know that deregulation in India boosted their economy and parts of Africa have since tried to follow suit. http://www.indiainbusiness.nic.in/economy/economic_reforms.htm

^^ And crony capitalism and regulation depends on government interference. What good has that done? The stereo-typical 'greedy, fearful, competitive' business man is employing hundreds of thousands of people as we speak. Should we leave it to government to take care of these people instead? Free markets regulate themselves. Government interference just makes it a big mess. Why do you think the banks were so careless with that money? Do you think if we had a TRULY free market, the banks would have been as careless? I don't think so.

Posted: 1/30/2014 6:59:46 PM
If the banks weren't insured by government on their customers accounts, they most likely would not have been as careless with the money as we saw. Free market logic dictates that if the bank wants to stay in business, they will act more carefully because they understand that no one is going to bail them out if all fails.

Yeah, temporarily it would have been a hell of a lot worse if the banks hadn't gotten bailed out, but I believe it would have been ultimately productive if government stayed out of the way. Crony-capitalism is not the same as true capitalism. That's why I have to laugh when people claim that the crash of the economy was a failure in capitalism. Government interference has been horrible for the economy yet these socialists keep begging for more government. Laughable.

For all those who think astrology is legitimate. I have an honest question for you.

I have a friend who was born the same day and same year as I was. I really do. Not just for the sake of this post. Me and him are COMPLETE opposites. I'm not exaggerating. We're not alike at all. If you read the general Sagittarius horoscope, it seems to describe me. My buddy with the same exact birthdate, not at all. Not even close.

At the same time, my late best friends birthdate was two months later than mine. (I think he was a Libra) and we were a lot alike. Our personalities, goals, ideas, you name it. If you had not known our birth dates and you subscribed to astrology, you would think we were the same sign.

So what is the explanation? I'm really not trying to be a smart ass or anything here. It's an honest question for proponents of astrology.

What are the most amazing 'properties' you have ever seen in science and nature?
Posted: 8/31/2013 1:31:44 AM
^^Real interesting stuff. I've met people who swear ayauasca changed their life for the better. There needs to be more research on dmt regarding why it is found so abundantly throughout nature. I think they will find that our conciousness is completely dependant upon it... it seems to be like a thread that connects nature, life and conciousness. If it is necessary for our conciousness, maybe that is why people get such a 'super concious' experience when taking in more than our brains naturally produce. Food for thought.



Adding on to my previous post...

When religious people ask me if I believe in 'god' (whatever their version of it may be), I always say no. Sometimes I get the question "well how do you think we all got here"? I tell them something to the degree of, "The Earth is so amazingly gorgeous and mesmerizing that it wanted to experience itself subjectively; it produced consciousness by default, couldn't stand t NOT be experienced and appreciated..." "No god necessary, she's got a mind of her own... I tell ya"

The most amazingly talented bands and musicians

^^ I would agree Hendrix wasn't the best act at woodstock, but overall I wouldn't say
he's overrated.

Excellent list though. Couldn't agree more
about The Band being underrated. The Clash is a good pick, Joe Strummer's really interesting. Intense personality.

Posted: 3/20/2013 9:48:15 PM
Hendrix is a religious experience for me. Can't listen to the live version of 'machine gun' at the isle of wight without getting chills. His rhythm section was superb. Drummer Mitch Mitchell was brilliant and is a tad underated.

http://youtu.be/eNgN1Eu7sDM

Beatles. They may have become a cliche, but their music speaks for itself.

David Bowie. Musical genius and producer. I'm convinced he's part god.

Zeppelin. Bonhham was an unbelievably excellent drummer (my personal favorite)... Page played like no one else... Plant was other-worldly.

The Beach Boys. Shockingly underated. Pet Sounds may be the most important album in rock history. Brian Wilson was a genius.

Rolling Stones. Self explainatory. Jagger has the best stage presence ever seen... Richards is the epitome of perfect rhythm guitar playing.

Sabbath. Putting out the best of Satan's music since the late 60's. Tony Iommi Had no feeling in the tips of the fingers on his guitar playing hand and still created some of the greatest riffs man will ever hear. I learned how to play the guitar by obsessively listening to the album 'paranoid' and teaching myself by ear.

Johnny Cash. Total badass. Grew up completely idolizing him.

Creedence Clearwater Revival. The only reason I love the Vietnam war. (kidding)

The Stooges. Their first couple albums paved the road for the new punk scene that would follow a couple years later. Ahead of their time. Iggy had insanely great stage presence... Ron Asheton took that old blues sound and transformed it into hauntingly beatiful riffs.

Neil Young. Had more depth than an abyss. Wore his heart on his sleeve, let it all out in his music.

Ramones. Cemented punk rock into rock'n'roll history.

Brian Jonestown Massacre. Never heard of them? Don't ask me why. The most underated band I've ever heard. Frontman Anton Newcombe is a musical genius and in my opinion, the first one rock'n'roll has seen in a long time. Most important band of the 90's. Should have been what Nirvana was. Album 'Bravery, Repitition and Noise' has become a personal favorite of mine... So good. Check out this song from the album.

http://youtu.be/3LeAsyqRNTI

Van Morrison. One of the best songwriters ever. Love his voice.

Fleetwood Mac. Don't care if my friends make fun of me for loving them.

I could go on but it would take me forever.

International Law?
Posted: 3/11/2013 5:25:35 AM
Truth is something that can sometimes be hideous, therefore I see how those who have the knowledge of what's happening and bound to happen can be conflicted in their approach.

Igor, I mentioned the C.F.R. and the Trilateral Commision because I believe that with little research it's simple to see that that's where the REAL decisions get made.

The puppet masters are the elite who make decisions before they get 'voted' or decided.
Same folks who made sure Ron Paul got
no fair media coverage. The same people who are allowing a first world country such as the U.S. to have a third world population.

No conspiracy theory. Just speculation.

By the way, 'the 'one's' I mean, are the one's doing it.

Agenda 21. No tendency for thoughts of
grandeur or paranoia required.

Two options here:

1.) They (United Nations puppet masters)
feel this the only truly positive and holy solution to man's future issues. Best of
intentions. A truth in and of itself.

2.) They want control over humanity in every way possible by creating a global
communist regime and this agenda is
a poorly disguised front for their protocol.

So what's going on?

The Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission are the ones running the show for Americans. Question is, how much does the average American citizen know about these think tanks? "Oh that's just political necessity". Ok. How cute.

Are the eyes really the window to the soul?
Posted: 3/11/2013 3:28:50 AM
Funny this thread was posted.

Recently my buddy did an experiment with this same question in mind. Although he didn't think the eyes were a window to a soul, he thought the eyes play a major part in identifying and distinguishing someone. Just the eyes themselves. To prove this he made copies of pictures he had of family and friends and cut the eyes out of all the pictures. The people just didn't seem like themselves. Actually, when I saw a picture of this nature, my mind automatically didn't want to
identify the person in the picture with my pre-conceived idea of who it was.

In conclusion, the eyes play a major part in distinguishing and identifying someone. No hocus pocus 'soul' required.

Is sex for it's own sake wrong?
Posted: 2/27/2013 4:09:45 PM
Obviously, 'right' and 'wrong' are subjective terms. In large, it depends on what ideologies you subject yourself to. If you subscribe to certain religious ideologies, sex out of marriage can be seen as wrong. In a strict evolutionary sense, the only reason we desire sex is because of our desire to keep our species alive by reproducing. This can be looked at as 'wrong' by religious or other ideologies because of its implication that we are acting on anamilistic instincts. Religion doesn't like that idea very much. So as I said, it comes down to what ideologies you subscribe or don't subscribe to.

Another thing to keep in mind is that sex and the desire for it can be viewed as 'wrong' when it becomes compulsive and obsessive, not being able to stop the urge or obsessive thoughts about it despite catastrophic consequences, causing you to have an unhealthy lifestyle.

With my above post, I'm giving my opinion on how to be stable through these hard times; hence not getting huge loans to pay for school at this time. Obviously getting a college degree is a smart thing to do when it makes sense to, to get a high paying job.

Posted: 2/27/2013 1:33:00 AM
Trade and Vocational training and/or moving up the company ladder from an
entry level position makes the most sense at this time, in my opinion. I have friends
with bachelor's degrees working minimum wage jobs, having to live with their parents
to pay off their school loans, and I see illegal immigrants making a comfortable
salary managing a McDonalds because they've worked there since they were 15.

My uncle (who has a master's degree) was trying to explain to me the other day that it's the older people with college degrees that are being hit hardest by this bad
economy while entry level jobs and labor/trade vocational jobs weren't being hit as
bad. I would recommend doing what makes most sense for the time being, financially, atleast until we get a clear idea of how different things will be following this recession.

Do you believe we landed on the moon?
Posted: 2/25/2013 6:26:59 PM
^^ Watched the video. One thing you have to remember, Kohmelo, is that most conspiracy theorists don't just believe in one conspiracy theory. They buy into an ass load and, more often than not, believe that they are all inter-connected. The reason to keep this in mind is the man in the video says that the film industry did not have the technology to pull off a fake moon landing video in or before 1969. Although he's most likely right, conspiracy theorists can claim that certain government inndustries did have the technology, but it was kept secret from the public for whatever reason. See what I'm getting at? Reasoning with a hardcore conspiracy theorist is ridiculous because when you provide evidence, some will claim that "that's how it's meant to look to the public".

In the video he talked about America and Russia's 'd!ck wagging contest' on who would get to the moon first. As I mentioned in another post, Russia was watching us like a hawk; if they saw any evidence that our shuttles weren't heading that way, or anything contradicting us actually reaching the moon, you wouldn't be able to get them to shut up about it.

If the photos were proven to be fake (which they haven't been to my knowledge), I would first assume that something happened to the original pics, or maybe the camera malfunctioned, and they faked some pictures because of the overwhelming pressure to produce them.

That would be a logical assumption, given the premise, because of the overwhelming evidence that we DID go to the moon in
1969.

The Russians had the technology to monitor the flight, surely they did. If they knew it never happened they would have a field day exposing the conspiracy.

Conspiracy theories are fun. Although they're mostly over-dramatized and giant leaps of logic, they're fun nonetheless.

We humans are hardwired to draw connections between things to give us
peace of mind by simplifying the scenario. It's counter-intuitive, because superficially
it seems that conspiracy theorists are complicating-ly drawing false connections,
but really they're simplifying it to fit their need for the "I've got this figured out" ego
stroke. When I say 'simplifying' I mean the person is falsely assuming "I have enough information on this matter to form an
informed opinion". Things are usually
more chaotic and out of our control than we like to believe.

Honest suggestion

Hey. I have a suggestion for whoever makes things happen on this site. I've noticed that
women have the option of choosing 'big and tall' as a body type. So a woman who is heavier than 'a few extra pounds' is assumably supposed to choose this option. The flaw is some women do have a 'big' body type, but are not tall. See what I'm saying? So a woman who is larger than 'a few extra pounds' is forced to choose this option, whether they are tall or not. I could see a guy who isn't attracted to tall women seeing that and leaving the page before they check to see her actual height.
