Ok people - I had resolved not to post here again, since - as rightly asserted, I cannot claim direct “victimhood” from SMC like many others here.
I do occasionally dip in to see if there are any new posters offering fresh testimonies of more recent SMC abuses but vowed to myself not to post ever again.
However since my middle-name clearly is Skeptic - and never shied away from it here - it was with great dismay to see a fellow SMC critic undo hers and other work here by giving plenty of ammo to the SMC leaders to deliver on their podiums.
Does HAARP exist ? sure. Does that mean that there is any basis or facts suggesting we should enter into fear mongering, and conspiracy-tainted paranoia regsading HAARP that cbarb and her “research” suggests ?
I think not. The same kind of panic started up briefly for the LHC at Geneva too.
It should always start triggering mental warning lights when one sees several conspiracy or “Coast To Coast AM” type subjects appear regularly in the same type of “believer blogs”. UFOS, contrails, Anal Probes, 911 Truthers, go ahead. Dip in.
Hell - why not just go listen to Art Bell or Coast To Coast Am on internet radio - and enjoy a panoply of all manner of supernatural, woo and conspiracy claims. Or go listen to Whitley Striebers podcast. Those of the kind of minds that are so open-minded their grey matter is in danger of falling out will really really love his show. Go ahead HAARP “researchers" - you’ll love it. Right up your street it seems.
OTOH - At the end of this post I will link to a podcast by - yes - sceptics. I would beg you all to be as open minded to this - as some here appear to be towards this HAARP worry-hobby paranoia.
We live in an era where there truly are things happening of immensely greater significance and danger than this HAARP nonsense.
Stuff that we all need to be very aware of - and yet - thanks to science denialism - nothing has been done.
I talk of man made global warming. Unlike this HAARP nonsense there is clear and unequivocal consensus among scientists who specialist in climatology and related research areas for this. The results of REAL research keep coming out and sadly only reiterate that things are worse than predicted. Its probably too late to do anything now. That time passéd long ago.
Vaccine denial. Another false scare fallen for by so many. And now we have a situation where diseases such as measles are on the rise again after decades of winning this fight with vaccinations. Thanks a bunch vaccine scaremongers.
Then this year we have the Snowden NSA revelations.
Want something to be scared and paranoid about ?
I’d suggest focusing on the above - and how future internet, drone and surveillance technologies will affect all of us. No woo in this. Its happening now.
And another thought - our National Health system is being systematically and stealthily taken to bits and privatised under the carpet. Virgin PLC looking to get a nice big slice of the action. This deserves almost conspiracy like language but i’ll step back from that.
