This website was invaluable in giving me information about landmark/est the day when @ 11:30pm my mom called me long distance out of the blue sounding hypo-manic/stoned/deranged using strange jargon saying she'd had a breakthrough and in an insistant and jeuvenille way asking me to come to a landmark grad ceremony. Without this kind of informational resource I very well may have fallen for t

QuoteandycheeWhat are you saying, that the president is a nazi? Thats nuts. Hes a christian, and he wants this to be a good christian country. Making up stuff won't change that ever. Prescott Bush, little Bush's grandfather was doing business with the Nazi's during the war and I believe was charged under some provision back in the day(business with the enemy act or some such th

PNAC and the Cheney thing where he says America needs a new Pearl Harbor in order to get the people behind the military a year before 9/11 and now there's some twit journalist who says we need a new 9/11 to unite the people lol.

Watching the movie Zeitgeist recently I followed a few suggested links and discovered this very sober and well layed out expose on outstanding 911 questions from an architect: I think if the evidence has any merit it could radically change some folks ideas about what terrorism is or can be. Anyway I guess it's a hypothesis, the speaker says a real independant investigation needs ta

Personally I don't see the need to compare religions as predominantly none are based on evidential arguments and relying on faith to guide ones destiny is a hopeless endeavor. I don't think there's really much use for benign religions, i don't think there are any. Blind faith is pretty useless and cherry picking bits and pieces is contemptable to the origins of most de-fan

Well as it happens Joe over on the athiest boards i frequent people bring things into question all the time as is natural :D That one didn't pass muster. I like the Betrand Russel quote above, if you can question the nature of the universe you can certainly question your worldly masters :D Nations are little meritocracies of a sort. We are all men and women from the same place ultimately

If i can relay my experience with religious science and my mother. She came to become enrolled in the landmark forum via some attendees of the church, not a solid indightment of the church perhaps merely some oppurtunistic affinity leveraging there, an infiltration of sorts. To my knowledge not all the attendees are lekkies so that is some comfort. I also see that two months ago, 'the sec

What kind of quality control is there on defining 'positive', 'negative', and the 'best' for everyone. I'm not sure what kind of empiricism you will ever find in a church, on oprah, or on talk radio for that matter. I understand or would assume most of us are painfully curious, are seeking anwers etc. A lot of people bank on that, pt barnum quotes asside i

If the mind treatment is not suggested to replace medical treatment, then why bother? If it's suggested to have some effect wouldn't the church goer find their belief in it displacing their desire to get medical treatment? But you're right there's qualifiers given. So why be a member of the Church of Religious Science? Perhaps it's not a cult, perhaps it's not

I suppose the vanguard for this type of thing might Christopher Hitchens :D I'm of a like mind, think churches should be taxed to offset the damage they do to society, and ultimately the money reinvested to bolster science education, classes on the history of secular institutions, even understanding religions' effects through the course of history.

Oh yeah, and note in those passages it's all about if you only just believe hard enough and purely your problems will vanish you will be perfection. Or at least i do believe that is what is implied. If you were made to believe that I think you will be meeting with disaster as life is not that simple, nor does one's mind leverage anything beyond what your physical limbs can reatch. E

In a society that grants 'religion' a free pass, common liberty and then held above the average citizen in a tax free status I find the notion that it's buyer beware providing for the average citizen to be a cavalier attitude. As you see the slow decay on the wall between church and state, or rather the rapid toppeling of that wall in the case of the US where in Cincinati there

'The Secret' is just more pile on the new age money train malarky. Landmark is much much more sinister. They don't advertise but by word of mouth, using the confidence of relatives, friends or coworkers against an unsuspecting peer. They are good at selling to the unsuspecting, and provide very little information. Then you are out 5-600$ and looking straight into the barrel of 3 13

I don't believe it for one, but have at times been labelled negative, and I've tried to state that I believe it is good to criticise or appraise something on merit in it's entirety both good and bad. Anyone that tries to shove part of my awareness into the gutter for a more clouded viewpoint be damned I say. Legitimate ideas should hold up to a little throttling from me, and if

This is where i mention 'the secret' is the topic of the month @ mom's Religious Science church. Welcome to the affinity fraud beltway! Critical thinking is out, now open the doors to any that may, like wolves to the lambs I say!
