Fun for skeptics and believers alike!

There has been some hoohaw over on natural news courtesy of everyone’s favourite healthranger (note that r is but a short keypress away from d…)  Mike Adams (who I have blogged about before here). It seems the twitter based shorty awards disqualification (more here and here and here) and the 1023 campaign may have broken his fragile little naturopath mind.  His ranting here is impressive – it’s scary though to see how quickly not getting ones own way translates into vast and mysterious conspiracies though… How do these peoples minds work? I don’t mean in a general why do they think what they think but literally how does one persons brain cope with so much nonsense and cognitive dissonance?

My mind boggles just trying to conceive it!

AD hom and on and on and on… AD HOM!

Despite what some folks may think I am not a Nazi and I am a skeptic!

The 1023 campaign is not about restricting freedom of choice, it is not about banning homeopathy rather it is about raising awareness of the scientific evidence that shows homeopathy doesn’t work.

Now I’m very sorry if hearing the scientific fact that “Homeopathy doesn’t work”  causes you some discomfort or upset and you are of course allowed to reject the massive weight of empirical and scientific evidence that suggests there is nothing in homeopathy. You can ignore the laws of the universe as discovered by physicists and chemists that state the memory of water is impossible and that you would need to drink the oceans dry to find an active ingredient in your homeopathic remedy.

Such is your right to freedom of belief.

You can ignore the science and you can ignore the evidence based medicine all you want.

What you don’t have the right to do is engage is baseless ad hominem attacks on those who disagree with you.

One Mainframe to rule them all.

This blog refers to a discussion in the comments on this previous post and refers to an invitation to view this production on YouTube related to the wethepeoplewillnotbechipped.com campaign. The movement frames itself thusly:

This movement is based on the irrefutable fact, that we believe in mankind’s inalienable human rights that are absolute and can not be debased, nor perverted. Human life can not be degraded to a 16 digit RFID chip number embedded under you skin under any circumstance. By uniting on this common ground, we can send a strong message to the IBM funded Verichip that we the people will not be chipped! Read the rest of this entry »

The Human Microchipping Agenda

ETA: This is not a review, it was never intended to be taken as a review, words emboldened have been added where I felt perhaps it was possible such a mistake could be made. I never claimed the post was a review but apologise if anyone arrived at this conclusion erroneously.

This is the third of my blogs about the upcoming AV3, the second being “Trevor Gunn: Vaccination the facts” and the first my introduction.

This talk appears to be based on fairly standard conspiracy theory nonsensein my opinion .

The presentation will showcase the global microchipping agenda tracing the first microchip back in time to the current ownership of the technology. Going back in history, parallels will be drawn to the Nazi regime to totally control the populace through information gathering and revealing the companies behind Hitler that still operate today. The all encompassing lecture will reveal how world governments with Google, Microsoft and other hidden companies will utilise Census Data, RFID, DNA and biometric harvesting, Satellites, Global databases and emerging technologies including biosensor microchips to usher in a new age movement of accepting ‘chipped’ individuals. Fuelled by the war on terror with the ultimate goal to bring in a world wide web of digitised ‘online’ individuals who serve a mainframe. The presentation will also demonstrate how the Transhumanism movement is the modern day eugenics, repackaged and rebranded for a new generation. The presentation will also showcase the marketing strategies Verichip is and will be using to microchip every person on the globe including the shady deals to get FDA approval.

Trevor Gunn: vaccination – the facts

Hello, good evening and welcome to the second of my alternative view 3 blog posts. The subject of this post? Trevor Gunn and his talk on vaccination: the facts…

From what I can discern from google Trevor Gunn is a homeopath who questions the germ theory of disease. One who questions the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. The following is from here and describes a talk that seems similar to that which Mr Gunn will be giving. Read the rest of this entry »

Have they got truth for you? Um… probably not…

I suppose that this marks this the start of a small series of blogs about the mainstream view, or at the least the evidence supported view at the least, then again if I’m being honest it might just be an excuse to take a lighthearted look at what a bunch of conspiracy theorists and woo-sters think.

Specifically a group of woo-sters appearing at AV3: the alternative view “have they got truth for you!”, the speakers will be appearing over weekend of the 13th of November (spooky, at least for paraskevidekatriaphobics anyway) Read the rest of this entry »
