Wow, Kosher atheist Dr Plait NOTMD says he believes in UFOs and wants to destroy chiropractic and alternative medicine, and replace it with vaccines that cause instant seizures or death in babies (35 vaccines per day per kid). He rags on "polio making a comeback", while censoring the fact that polio is "wiped out in India", because the "polio vaccine" caused 50,000 new cases of polio in 1 year (since polio is given a new name it don't count as "polio"?).

"The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. Using Leape's 1997 medical and drug error rate would add another 216,000 deaths, for a total of 999,936 deaths annually. Our estimated 10-year total of 7.8 million iatrogenic* deaths is more than all the casualties from all the wars fought by the US throughout its entire history. Our considerably higher figure is equivalent to six jumbo jets are falling out of the sky each day."

"Microsoft founder turned philanthropist Bill Gates released a glass full of mosquitoes at an elite technology conference to make a point about the deadly disease malaria. "Malaria is spread by mosquitoes," Gates said while opening a jar onstage at the Technology, Entertainment, Design Conference — a gathering known to attract technology kings, politicians, and Hollywood stars. "I brought some. Here I'll let them roam around. There is no reason only poor people should be infected." The unusual presentation on malaria prevention was confirmed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's media office.
In September, Gates announced that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would provide $168.7 million to the PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative to help develop a vaccine for the deadly disease [and avoid paying taxes on $168.7 million by giving it to themselves]." http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,488348,00.html

"In a lengthy interview with Bill Moyers released today, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates reveals the inspiration for his funding of pro-abortion population control measures. Responding to a question by Moyers on how he came to fund “reproductive issues” Gates answered, “When I was growing up, my parents were always involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood."

Plait gives ZERO facts or evidence to support his claims, as always, replacing facts with RIDCULE. His audience is so dumb, they blindly follow this atheist jew psychopath down the rabbit hole to eugenics Hell on Earth.

This self-confessed "Bad Astronmer" NEVER discussed facts nor science in his rants against "skeptics" then hijacks the word "skeptic" and misdefines the word "skeptic is a person who refuses to believe skeptics." Can you think DoubleSpeak?

His biggest claim to expertise is that he's a BLOGGER at Bad Astronomy.com (that never discusses astronomy, science nor his job at NASA, and bans all photographs except for his own baby pictures). His only audience is people too stoopid to comprehend science and unable to think for themselves.

The surface of the Moon is baldly exposed to cosmic rays and solar flares.

Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation

Includes The 8 Traits of A Disinformationalist


by H. Michael Sweeney
www.MKZine.com
Spring/Summer 2003

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary 'attack the messenger' ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as 'kooks', 'right-wing', 'liberal', 'left-wing', 'terrorists', 'conspiracy buffs', 'radicals', 'militia', 'racists', 'religious fanatics', 'sexual deviates', and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism, reasoning -- simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent's viewpoint.

9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues except with denials they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.

17. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can 'argue' with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can't do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how 'sensitive they are to criticism.'

Quack Dr Phil is an employee of NASA on its GLAST Gamma Ray Space Telescope, but NEVER mentions these facts when he "debunks" the Apollo moon hoax. Nor does he mention gamma rays in outer space nor the Moon. Nor does he question why Apollo never took a telescope to the moon nor took photos properly exposed for starlight. This is a conflict of interest and censorship, which is exactly what he's paid to do by NASA Nazis as PR and disinformation.

Quote:

This speech by astronomer and atheist Dr. Phillip Cary Plait was given at the TAM8 Conference which took place from July 8-11, 2010. Phil Plait is the author of _Death from the Skies_ and is President of the James Randi Educational Foundation as well as creator of the online blog "Bad Astronomy," hosted by discovermagazine.com. He served for a decade on the Hubble Space Telescope.

The topic of the speech pertains to effectiveness of approach when involving oneself in the discussions related to "winning the hearts and minds" of the great majority of humanity to critical thinking, atheism, and science. It is an offer of constructive criticism and an examination of not only the counterproductive effects of employing needless insults and hostility as a methodology but also of the proper orientation one must take to the process of raising consciousness and both engendering and cultivating a society capable of scientific reasoning.

The ironic note is that he mentions Skepchick Rebecca Watson having concurrently published writings on the same theme, though with a different trajectory. Watson presently is embroiled in petty inflammatory exchanges regarding her "elevatorgate" experience and is campaigning for a boycott against the pioneering atheist and accomplished biologist Richard Dawkins for simply not "getting it," as she wantonly declares. Instead of taking an educational approach to the matter to raise consciousness and advance both feminism and atheism, she has chosen instead to antagonize, divide, and ultimately damage the atheist community and its most prominent spokesperson... and has in effect alienated feminists and feminist efforts therein. This would appear to contradict a "don't be a dick" approach, of course, and, in fact, after Plait's speech came out, she and PZ Myers denounced it. In a later speech Watson even declared, "I realized I am, in fact, a dick, and I should just embrace it." So clearly she takes a different tact...

As Dr. Plait states in this lecture, we're already facing tremendous difficulties in overcoming the resistance of irrationality. So infighting and "cheap point scoring" simply and needlessly add to the already daunting challenges we face as a members of a movement to enlighten and empower other minds.

Whatistobe

Disclaimer: The maker of this video is in no way associated with Dr. Phil Plait, The James Randi Educational Foundation, www.randi.org, TAM conferences, or vimeo.com. This video is intended for information purposes only.

Highlights from Part 1:

"There's some alarming developments in the way skepticism is being done... The tone of what we're doing is decaying, and instead of relying on the merits of the arguments- which is what critical thinking is really all about, is what evidence-based reasoning is about- it seems that vitriol and venom are on the rise."

"How do you convince someone that they're not thinking clearly when they're not thinking clearly?"

"The message we're trying to convey is hard all by its lonesome, and it's even worse when we're trying to peddle this idea... of no magic, no afterlife, no higher moral authoritative father figure, no security, and no happy ever after... This is a tough sell."





If you like Dr Plait you'll love Dr Pianka:

Quote:

Doctor Doom, Eric Pianka, Receives Standing Ovation from Texas Academy of Science


The following is excerpted from "Meeting Doctor Doom" by Forrest Mims, Chairman of the Environmental Science Section of the Texas Academy of Science:

... I watched in amazement as a few hundred members of the Texas Academy of Science rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to a speech that enthusiastically advocated the elimination of 90 percent of Earth's population by airborne Ebola. The speech was given by Dr. Eric R. Pianka (Fig. 1), the University of Texas evolutionary ecologist and lizard expert who the Academy named the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.
Something curious occurred a minute before Pianka began speaking. An official of the Academy approached a video camera operator at the front of the auditorium and engaged him in animated conversation. The camera operator did not look pleased as he pointed the lens of the big camera to the ceiling and slowly walked away.

This curious incident came to mind a few minutes later when Professor Pianka began his speech by explaining that the general public is not yet ready to hear what he was about to tell us.

Because of many years of experience as a writer and editor, Pianka's strange introduction and the TV camera incident raised a red flag in my mind. Suddenly I forgot that I was a member of the Texas Academy of Science and chairman of its Environmental Science Section. Instead, I grabbed a notepad so I could take on the role of science reporter.
One of Pianka's earliest points was a condemnation of anthropocentrism, or the idea that humankind occupies a privileged position in the Universe. He told a story about how a neighbor asked him what good the lizards are that he studies. He answered, "What good are you?"

Pianka hammered his point home by exclaiming, "We're no better than bacteria!"

Pianka then began laying out his concerns about how human overpopulation is ruining the Earth. He presented a doomsday scenario in which he claimed that the sharp increase in human population since the beginning of the industrial age is devastating the planet. He warned that quick steps must be taken to restore the planet before it's too late.

Saving the Earth with Ebola

Professor Pianka said the Earth as we know it will not survive without drastic measures. Then, and without presenting any data to justify this number, he asserted that the only feasible solution to saving the Earth is to reduce the population to 10 percent of the present number.

He then showed solutions for reducing the world's population in the form of a slide depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. War and famine would not do, he explained. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved.

Pianka then displayed a slide showing rows of human skulls, one of which had red lights flashing from its eye sockets.

AIDS is not an efficient killer, he explained, because it is too slow. His favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world's population is airborne Ebola ( Ebola Reston ), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. However, Professor Pianka did not mention that Ebola victims die a slow and torturous death as the virus initiates a cascade of biological calamities inside the victim that eventually liquefy the internal organs.

After praising the Ebola virus for its efficiency at killing, Pianka paused, leaned over the lectern, looked at us and carefully said, "We've got airborne 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that."

With his slide of human skulls towering on the screen behind him, Professor Pianka was deadly serious. The audience that had been applauding some of his statements now sat silent.

After a dramatic pause, Pianka returned to politics and environmentalism. But he revisited his call for mass death when he reflected on the oil situation.

"And the fossil fuels are running out," he said, "so I think we may have to cut back to two billion, which would be about one-third as many people." So the oil crisis alone may require eliminating two-third's of the world's population.

How soon must the mass dying begin if Earth is to be saved? Apparently fairly soon, for Pianka suggested he might be around when the killer disease goes to work. He was born in 1939, and his lengthy obituary appears on his web site.

When Pianka finished his remarks, the audience applauded. It wasn't merely a smattering of polite clapping that audiences diplomatically reserve for poor or boring speakers. It was a loud, vigorous and enthusiastic applause.

Questions for Dr. Doom

Then came the question and answer session, in which Professor Pianka stated that other diseases are also efficient killers.

The audience laughed when he said, "You know, the bird flu's good, too." They laughed again when he proposed, with a discernable note of glee in his voice that, "We need to sterilize everybody on the Earth."

After noting that the audience did not represent the general population, a questioner asked, "What kind of reception have you received as you have presented these ideas to other audiences that are not representative of us?"

Pianka replied, "I speak to the converted!"

Pianka responded to more questions by condemning politicians in general and Al Gore by name, because they do not address the population problem and "...because they deceive the public in every way they can to stay in power."

He spoke glowingly of the police state in China that enforces their one-child policy. He said, "Smarter people have fewer kids." ...

With this, the questioning was over. Immediately almost every scientist, professor and college student present stood to their feet and vigorously applauded the man who had enthusiastically endorsed the elimination of 90 percent of the human population. Some even cheered. Dozens then mobbed the professor at the lectern to extend greetings and ask questions. It was necessary to wait a while before I could get close enough to take some photographs (Fig. 1).

I was assigned to judge a paper in a grad student competition after the speech. On the way, three professors dismissed Pianka as a crank. While waiting to enter the competition room, a group of a dozen Lamar University students expressed outrage over the Pianka speech.

Yet five hours later, the distinguished leaders of the Texas Academy of Science presented Pianka with a plaque in recognition of his being named 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist. When the banquet hall filled with more than 400 people responded with enthusiastic applause, I walked out in protest.

Corresponding with Dr. Doom

Recently I exchanged a number of e-mails with Pianka. I pointed out to him that one might infer his death wish was really aimed at Africans, for Ebola is found only in Central Africa. He replied that Ebola does not discriminate, kills everyone and could spread to Europe and the the Americas by a single infected airplane passenger.

In his last e-mail, Pianka wrote that I completely fail to understand his arguments. So I did a check and found verification of my interpretation of his remarks on his own web site. In a student evaluation of a 2004 course he taught, one of Professor Pianka's students wrote, "Though I agree that convervation [sic] biology is of utmost importance to the world, I do not think that preaching that 90% of the human population should die of ebola [sic] is the most effective means of encouraging conservation awareness." (Go here and scroll down to just before the Fall 2005 evaluation section near the end.)

Yet the majority of his student reviews were favorable, with one even saying, " I worship Dr. Pianka."

The 45-minute lecture before the Texas Academy of Science converted a university biology senior into a Pianka disciple, who then published a blog that seriously supports Pianka's mass death wish.

Dangerous Times
Let me now remove my reporter's hat for a moment and tell you what I think. We live in dangerous times. The national security of many countries is at risk. Science has become tainted by highly publicized cases of misconduct and fraud.

Must now we worry that a Pianka-worshipping former student might someday become a professional biologist or physician with access to the most deadly strains of viruses and bacteria? I believe that airborne Ebola is unlikely to threaten the world outside of Central Africa. But scientists have regenerated the 1918 Spanish flu virus that killed 50 million people. There is concern that small pox might someday return. And what other terrible plagues are waiting out there in the natural world to cross the species barrier and to which scientists will one day have access?

Meanwhile, I still can't get out of my mind the pleasant spring day in Texas when a few hundred scientists of the Texas Academy of Science gave a standing ovation for a speaker who they heard advocate for the slow and torturous death of over five billion human beings. ...

Slow yes.

You posted it from 2 years ago. I watched it for the first time. It's amazing to me that Plait can talk for 30 minutes and say NOTHING, other than insult his audience of True Believers In Nothing (because their Skeptics).

Plait is merely teaching the 25 Rules of Disinformation for brainwashing. Never does he say to quote facts, nor does he ever quote facts. This is SOP for MKULTRA to "Win The Damn Game" (quoting Plait).

His Jedi mind tricks only work on weak sheeple, especially those who never read 1984.

As a professor, he exemplifies USA ranking 50th in world edukashun.

But I will support the right of anyone - black, white, Hispanic, Asian, or what have you - to enjoy watermelon if they so desire.

Oh, I get it. Only those self anointed to tell us what is and isn't 'racist' are allowed to point out the obvious racial stereotypes. All others need not apply.

I must have missed that memo. Got it now.

And what sort of dink doesn't care for watermelon ? Good lord... everyone loves watermelon. Not caring for it is on par with not liking puppies, or .. thinking Kaylee is annoying.

To be fair, not all watermelons are the same. If you get a hold of an over ripe, mushy one, or one that doesn't have much flavor, it can be like...well, it's not very good. But watermelon in general, is pretty darn good. Not my favorite melon, mind you, but on a hot 4th of July, who's gonna turn down watermelon ?

Can I ask, Is it the texture? I mean, if you were handed a watermelon juice would you drink that?

Just curious. It always fascinates me why people don't like certain foods.



It's the flavor. To me, it tastes like cheap perfume. To be honest, there really aren't any melons I like - not the kind to be found on the produce aisle, at any rate!

Wife loves watermelon and cantaloupe, and I just... don't. I buy fresh pineapple on a semi-regular basis, and I can eat a whole one for lunch if given a chance. Peaches, nectarines, plums, pears, apples, bananas. Cherries. Berries. Right now I can find lots of berries at the market, and a few in my yard - I'm munching fresh mulberries and blackberries out of my yard right now, mixed with raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. Yum!

But no watermelon. Sorry.

You may not have noticed, but if you kiss a girl on certain parts of her body, you just might get a taste of her perfume. And even Chanel No. 5 is none too tasty. ;)

But yeah, it's more of a "tastes like something else smells" thing. I don't like Dinty Moore Beef Stew because to me it tastes exactly like a wet dog smells. Well, that and it's Dinty Moore Beef Stew, so it's a safe bet that's not really beef in there!

And Fritos smell like dog's feet (they really do!)

Oh yeah, Axe spray is yummy too And I've noticed some people smell like Fritos, and not 'cause they just ate 'em...

I just got notified from a couple things you posted to from April... I think Haken got switched to Pony Express Notifications when he wasn't looking

Yeah, I get notifications *sometimes* if I post to the blu.fff site, but never if I post to the new "beta" site. I might get a notification, I might get it way late, or maybe not at all. So I just have to kind of keep a running mental tab of active posts and check in...

The only other thing I really don't like about the new site's format is that way it makes multiple pages out of longer threads. It's markedly slower for me, so I tend to keep coming back to blue.

I too hate the multiple pages thing, with a passion. Unfortunately a lot of people have asked for such a feature so I fear we're stuck with it. :(

I assume you're my pal until you let me know otherwise.

America loves a winner!



I got use to seeing the number of replies posted, instead of number of posts in each thread. A minor thing, I know, but that kinda bugs me.
