    Science fiction. Computers. Writing. Classic rock. UFOs.
  1. I don't think it's real. I think it's something the Mayans told the conquistadors to mess with their heads. Yep, Mayans were big fat liars.
  2. Is possession of a person by an evil spirit a real phenomenon, or was it a way to explain conditions of the brain in the past? I can see how someone having an epileptic fit could have seemed possessed.
  3. I'll leave you to decide on this but I find it hard to believe. A scientist explains the discovery of a six inch tall alien. There's even a small alien autopsy scene. Apart from this questionable section of the article, he does raise a lot of interesting points about alternative fuels and technology. I'd like to see the film. Here's the article. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/07/tiny-alien-humanoid-among_n_3017854.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003
  4. It's been a puzzle to scientists for a while why our DNA is so complex. A lot of it seems useless or is left over junk. Some scientists have theorized that some of this "junk" DNA may be some kind of tag or even a manufacturer's stamp. What do you think? It might even explain abductions. They could be checking the DNA to see how much it's diverged over the millennia.
  5. I tend to believe that possession is a way of explaining conditions such as epilepsy, and other maladies of the mind. What do you think? Has ayone ever really been possessed by an evil spirit?
  6. Sure 90 percent of every UFO sighting can be explained but that leaves 10 percent. There's an awful lot of encounters that have validity and have been seen by respected people. I can't explain this. Some things just can't be explained yet.
  7. I always marvel at our luck at having such a celestial wonder as the Moon. There was a documentary that posed the question, How would earth be without the Moon? I was fascinating. It's the perfect balance for our world, bringing tides and winds. Without it, there might be a far more pronounced wobble to our planet. It's almost enough to make you believe it was placed there by design.
  8. I thought it might be something like that but this seems more like a Secret World Order. I'm not sure if I see anything "New" about it. It seems like there's always been some elite in the background pulling the strings of society.
  9. Excuse my ignorance but it's a phrase I'm hearing more and more. My friend has been throwing it around a lot too and I'd like to know what he's talking about. Is it a behind the scenes group? The illuminati? What?
  10. Switzerland is a far smaller country and it's somewhat questionable how they attained their wealth. I think the traditional model of working a forty hour week for a single employer is gone or soon will be. It's a matter of finding as many jobs as you can so you can pay the rent. Part-time, contract, whatever you can find. Even a good education can't guarantee a good future anymore.
  11. I sometimes wonder if it's intelligence that's the blight or curse on this world. Before we gained intelligence we were probably very happy swinging from trees. Now, we're unhappy because we don't have the latest gadget and our worls is suffering under our population explosion.
  12. When I was growing up David Icke was a sports commentator on tv. I often wonder what event in his life caused him to change so much.
  13. I guess it's a big question with lots of potential answers but who does run the World? Is there an Illuminati behind the government? Do the corporations make all the decisions? Is the Catholic church in charge of us all? Is a huge conglomeration of banks making all the decisions? Is there a giant fluffy bunny pulling the strings? (I was kidding about the last one...Or am I?)
  14. I've read at least one conspiracy book that proposes several interesting notions. Some of the largest epidemics in living memory are actually virus' that escaped from labs before the introduction of advanced lab security. What do you think? Look at a historical outbreak and wonder if it was a cover up of an escaped virus
  15. Nah, I do actually believe in God, or some omnipotent being around us. I'm just no longer convinced that he loves us. Seriously. And I don't like churches, they just seem like some kind of extremely elegant propaganda machine. Religion is the reason I've never really met my father's side of the family.
