This question is too difficult, it’s giving me anxiety. Torn between “who was Jesus and how did his story take off the way it did” “who is the Zodiac killer” “the full story of Jeffrey Epstein and all the people around him” and “all the bad stuff Trump did to become president and while being President.”

Somebody mentioned the Zodiac killer. They a year ago came up with he’s this guy, Gary Francis Poste.

The Frog Boys from South Korea were a group of pre-teen boys who disappeared from a day out searching for salamander eggs in a wooded area near their homes. Their bodies were found much later in an area that had been searched before. Every time I find anything about this case I read something new about what happened that I had never heard before, so I wonder what is true and what is rumor. The South Korean police did not know how to handle the crime scene, and I imagine did not know how to do a thorough search of the area the boys were last seen, so I'm sure all physical evidence has been lost.

The Setagaya murders in Japan were the murders of an entire family in Japan in 2000, including 2 children. The police are working on DNA since the killer left clothing and feces in the toilet (gross!). The killer spent some time hanging around the house after killing everyone.

R33, You must be as dumb, not to remember that Dubya v. Gore was decided "not setting any precedent" by a corrupt Supreme Court.

by Anonymousreply 39June 4, 2022 3:22 PM

R39 That election in Florida was a shit show and the recount was even worse. The Supreme Court had to make a ruling when they did or there would not be a victor in the EC and it would instead be thrown to the House, something it was thought would be a bigger problem for the country. It is a quaint idea, now.

Interestingly, if you look at what each side was arguing for and compare it with the media's investigation of ballots afterward, if the SC hadn't ruled and the recount had continued in the same manner, Bush would've still won. The only scenario they found that would have resulted in a Gore victory would have been if all the ballots in question were counted statewide by a uniform standard. Then he might have won by less than 200 votes. But, Gore never argued for that. His team kept arguing that only certain counties should be counted and that they should be allowed to have different standards, which were all scenarios that it turned out would've helped Bush's victory.

R121, I think that's a reasonable guess, although I also think he might have killed himself in the wilderness back in '76.

If Bishop did escape, I wonder what he lived on. It's also interesting to speculate whether he would be able to get away with disappearing today, given the ubiquity of security cams and the impossibility of doing anything without some sort of online verification of identity.

[quote] [R110] this is the kind of bullshit the religious people tell themselves so that they don’t feel so bad. “The people who believe in science are just as stupid as I am.”

How’s it bullshit exactly? The scientific method is just a human method of organized thought. You have to have faith in the idea that, because experiments can be replicated and the same results obtained, that represents some sort of absolute truth beyond the confines of human thought, something truly objective.

Not seeing what you’re objecting to. All the above seems self-evident.

[quote] Uhm…the scientific method simply means that you can recreate a certain, specified result upon testing. It means one can prove the result by reaction and not rely on faith/belief that said result can occur randomly or at all.

Don’t um me, and yes that it what it means. But what you’re missijkng is, what you’ve just stated is indeed a belief rather than an absolute truth. We can conduct experiments which have results and we can take certain truths or theories from those results but those truths or theories may be wrong.

Belief goes into all of that. And I say that as a committee atheist. Read the linked article for an examination of a recent example of how this plays out.

That's definitely possible but the two sightings of him in Italy and Switzerland by people who worked closely with him for years before he ran off sounded very credible.

[quote] It's also interesting to speculate whether he would be able to get away with disappearing today, given the ubiquity of security cams and the impossibility of doing anything without some sort of online verification of identity.

I cannot even imagine how making yourself disappear and living under a false identity could even be possible in this day and age, with all the technology. How could a person even begin to do that?

The only way I think it *might* be able to work would be to have a person take care of you 100%, you would be totally dependent on that person. They would have to provide housing for you, pay for everything, etc. You wouldn't be able to have a job, or a bank account or anything else that a normal person would have. That would be a very stressful and difficult life to live.

R123 I guess, to me, I don't have any "belief" in science I just accept that the findings are logical and therefore correct. And the scientific method is how I determine if the conclusion is logical.

I believe in God, but faith is illogical and any attempt to make it logical distracts from the spirituality for me, it is just something I BELIEVE. Like, I believe that human nature is inherently good, though I have little to no evidence of this, it is just my belief.

R95, Those advanced civilizations [See: Atlantis] were wiped out by the Great World-Wide Flood, the story of which [See: Gilgamesh," Utnapishtim in the "Epic of] is on Sumerian clay tablets pre-dating the Bible.

The few remaining survivors became the Teachers of legend [See: Viracocha, E.g., Kon Tiki and]. This "teaching" would explain the seemingly inexplicable emergence of Sumer, as Athena from the head of Zeus, as the forerunner of civilization, with advanced knowledge of astronomy, geography, agriculture, writing, the wheel, and the plow.

The Flood also accounts for why the origin of post-Deluvian agricultural grains [See: Barley, Einkorn Wheat and] has been traced genetically to ancient Turkey [See: Purported Landing Place of, Noah's (Utnapishtim's) Ark].

What was the real deal with Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Joan of Arc, etc.? Were they just conmen/women or were they deranged and legitimately believe God was talking to them?

R133, It's a pathetic con artist who continues the con unto death, don't you think?

With your examples, clearly each felt certain he or she was in communication with a non-human entity (although IIRC Jesus is described in prayer and/or lamentation rather than hearing voices, as with Joan of Arc and Moses), usually called "God" but who have been posited as actual extraterrestrials in the non-spiritual sense.

And the book "The Missing Lands: Uncovering Earth's Pre-Flood Civilization" (Freddy Silva).

This is what the historian Pliny the elder and Tacitus said about Messalina (Claudius the emperor who knew nothings, wife) "Among the particular rumors which have followed Messalina down through the ages are that she solicited men in common taverns, danced naked in the Forum, and once bet a famous Roman prostitute that she could beat her at her own game; Pliny the Elder notes that she won the bet, "for within the space of twenty-four hours she cohabited twenty-five times." The Roman historian Tacitus mentions by name many prominent men with whom Messalina had relationships, suggesting that she was merely giving in to wayward proclivities. The fact that she monopolized the attentions of the famous dancer, Mnester, who could do her no political favors, argues for this interpretation. Cassius Dio, however, interprets her escapades as purposefully directed toward political ends. For instance, he describes her contrivance to involve many prominent women in a group sex session at which their husbands were in attendance. Those men who attended were awarded with various offices and honors through her influence with Claudius, but their actions also made them vulnerable, should she wish it, to charges of "pandering." Meanwhile, those who did not attend were undermined politically or destroyed...Claudius appears to have been truly infatuated with his wife (Suetonius uses the words "extravagant love" to describe his feelings), and to have trusted her completely." All about 48 AD. Was it true? Did she really have a contest with Rome's most famous prostitute, I should mention her name, she should have the notoriety, too. It was Scylla, I think pronounced Silla.

Honestly, poor Claudius, he was in love. She was very pretty.
