  1. My posts have been pro science, anti racist and a few others inbetween. Guilty as charged!
  2. Yes, I know a fair bit about virology and vaccines. Not an expert by any strengh. But more importantly I work with people that are experts and work on viruses, and have worked on sar-cov-2. And I trust them. So when you hear people say you can't isolate a virus... well, it's just false at the end of the day. It is a vaccine. The argument that it isn't is pure semantics and disingenuous.
  3. I would be against mandatory vaccines. Would be very surprised if it went that way. There is a strong history of medicine by consent in this country and I don't see the government crossing that line. I'm not saying it's impossible. Government has said no way as an option. But they have been known to change their minds! Vaccine passports, less of a redline for me. Again don't think the government will impose this, but private industry may.
  4. Keep your hate to yourself. You must be an angry bitter human being. How about start looking at your own flaws before attacking others. You've got your life in order, have you? I very much doubt it.
  5. Everyone is seriously pissed off with these restrictions and now Christmas has been cancelled in some areas. My take, which is very different to others in here, is that the vaccine should not be public enemy no. 1. The vaccine is the one thing that is going to put a stop to this in the near future. I know about problem reaction solution. Don't think it applies here. The theories about what the plan is for this vaccine just don't hold up to scrutiny. The trials were done and now around 350,000 people have had take it. When do you expect the adverse reactions to start? (by adverse reactions I mean anything above the statistically norm). After 1 million? 5 million? There will be no significant adverse reactions. Next couple of months will be tough. And we need to look after our mental health. Obsessing over evil vaccines isn't going to help you and you will see in 3-4 months, the anxiety was not warranted. Get outside, take up a hobby, call a friend. Stay safe.
  6. Have you got the link to see this chart in its context? Not disputing influenza cases are significantly down but there's some aspects of the charts that are confusing me. No mention of northern or southern hemisphere which is unusual as most analysis of influenza is broken down into the 2 hemispheres as they are distinct seasons. The starting year doesn't make sense to me either, is it meant to be 2019? If so, why doesn't it say it. I read the chart as week 1 = January. So it follows the expected pattern as influenza would reduce to minimal levels around late March/April (week 12). It's a bit confusing but the original source would be good if you have it.
  7. They were lovely! But that's the problem. My experience was a very brief one but was enough to see the foundations on which they have built their belief system on - and they were rotten to the core. I saw advertising for a free personality test outside one of their buildings. I had interest in all things alternative and I knew this was one of their recruitment methods, so I went in as I'm curious by nature. I was greeted by a lovely lady who gave me a cup of tea and talked me through the process. She handed me a personality test and left the room. I completed it as honestly as I could, it was mostly standard questions to determine if one is an extrovert or introvert etc. But there were the few odd ones thrown in. Do you suffer from night terrors? Do you suffer from unconscious jerks or tics? There were others questions like this but can't quite remember now. I thought they were odd questions at the time. The lady came back, took my results and fed them through a computer. That generated a personality profile and she then started to probe. She was interpreting an over simplified chart and trying to find weaknesses in me as a person. Imagine trying put an entire human being's personality onto one a4 piece of paper! Ludicrous. So she went into my childhood, desperately searching for some kind of trauma to latch onto. She asked if my father ever beat me. I said no. Then all still smiles, she asked if my mother beat me! The whole thing was basically 'come on, you must be damaged somehow, you must have some trauma in your life'. I felt under pressure to find something and she was looking stupid at this point. I said, "well, I lost my granddad a few years ago". She jumped straight onto it, started pointing to her chart saying how that explains a lot. I tried to tell her he was a 93 year old man and it was a natural passing. But, she had found her 'weakness' and was trying to exploit it. She told me Scientology could help me heal myself. Gave me lots of examples of how it helped others and told me how to join. But I saw right through it, saw the psychological tricks, the exploitation. I don't know if you've ever seen Derren Brown but he demonstrates what these charlatans can do and how effective it can be. Psychics use the trickery a lot when doing seances. I was out of there sharpish. Fortunately, I was in quite a good place in my life and was psychologically strong enough not to be exploited. But if I was in another place, perhaps had recent actual traumatic events in my life, then I may have been more vulnerable to their methods. So I saw first hand their recruitment methods, they find a weakness (we've all got them) and they exploit them for their own financial and power gains. Stay away from cults and stay away from belief systems in general.
  8. I agree. I don't think JP is a conman, guess it depends on what you think the con is in the first place though. I really enjoy his psychological take on things. His depth of knowledge on the human condition is impressive and he has helped perhaps millions of people better themselves through personal development. He suffers from depression himself so understands the mechanisms needed to keep afloat in this chaotic world. He clearly is passionate about what he believes in and I don't think he's in anyone elses pocket. A true free thinker. His bible talks from a psychological perspective are really good and I'm saying that as a staunch atheist. He's actually softened my views on religion. I used to be quite militant against all religions but now I can understand them from a psychological viewpoint.
  9. Cult for me. I had personal experience of their recruitment methods. They prey of those who are struggling already and jump on their vulnerabilities.
  10. They constantly refer to Jews as 'using the globe for profiteering' and Jews are 'going to enslave humanity'. They don't make references to Zionism (a political movement) in these statements and they are not talking about the ideology of Judaism. They are clearly focusing of Jews in their own words. I'll give one specific example at 22:35 - Adam quotes a comment that has come in - "Christianity is the complete opposite to Judaism. Christ was the first to expose these devils". He then goes on to say "that's not accurate at all. There were so many writings all over Egypt, Greece, all over the place, writing about the Jews before the time of Jesus". So instead of having an issue with calling Jews devils, he has an issue with the claim that it was Christ who first called them devils. So his actual issue was that the calling of Jews devils didn't start early enough for him! Other guy finishes with "There has always a Jewish problem throughout the annuls of history". Not a problem with Judaism, not a problem with Zionists. A problem with Jews. The poster of the video even suggested he might be banned for being racist! You couldn't make it up. The forum rules are quite clear on what this language is considered. Racist.
  11. I would hope it's unsurprising for me call out an abhorrent racist. I'm completely opposed to the hatred spouted above.
