    Trump Consciousness

    Well, then shut down Skeptiko, then. Guess the first couple years of the show were pointless and taught us nothing. Shut down IANDS and NDERF, too. Call up the folks at University of Virginia and tell them to call it quits: diverdown says we know nothing about the afterlife and therefore Trump...

    Trump Consciousness

    When Trump experiences his life review, I assume he will he have to personally experience all the suffering and all the grief that his decisions brought upon the citizens whose lives he was supposed to seek to protect and improve through his tenure as president. Each. Single. Person. We have...

    Trump Consciousness

    I voted for W in ‘04 during the second election I was old enough to vote for after having voted for Gore in ‘00 (I was still convinced at that time of the need for a strong military response to 9/11 in order to ensure national security, hence my vote). My political worldview at that time was...

    Trump Consciousness

    Just stopping by to say I'm very happy with the outcome though I wish Bernie were president. Trump’s a terrible person and deserved his beating. His inner circle is also nothing but filthy, self-interested negative energy. Good riddance to all of these garbage people!

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    I’m with the conspiracy theorists on this one: I think this is a stunt. People better hide their glee about Trump “having the virus” or the right will use it to keep claiming the left are heartless jerks who need to be punished. They’ll be claiming it anyway, I reckon. Meanwhile Trump will claim...

    Jurgen Ziewe is bringing Virtual Reality to the Spiritual Experience |465|

    I have to admit that having the episode start off with tales of demon portraits and poltergeist phenomena made all the old alarms go off for me - alarms programmed into me by well-meaning(?) Christian relatives, community members, etc. (Stay away from this s**t! shouts the amygdala, well primed...

    William Ramsey, The Satanic Panic Head Fake |463|

    I think it would be interesting to invite guests from other faith traditions aside from fundamentalist/evangelical Christian streams to comment on some of the questions Skeptiko pursues. Lets bring on some legit Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews, First Nations - not white folks from the...

    I'm doing what I can to unshackle myself of those attitudes. They're baggage that nobody needs to be carrying in addition to everything else, especially these days.

    I agree that money and happiness do not equate and it's self-evidently true that "man does not live on bread alone" but with too little of it he does not live at all and can only be said to be surviving. At the bottom of Maslow's hierarchy of needs labor the greatest portion of humanity...

    I'm very sorry for your loss, Garry. I imagine there are a number of folks on this forum who can give you good advice and point you in helpful directions when you've had some time to process what has happened. I've consulted with a Windbridge medium in the past and have gotten some helpful...

    Re: Alex's question to Tricia about Scottish Calvinism and views on money, magic and spirituality I'd offer this: Why do cultures and economic arrangements as they stand get a pass? I think a lot of us receive our current conditions as though they are meant to be the way they are, or are...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Hey everyone! Looks like a bunch of people down in the Gulf are giving up their freedom! There's a PsyOp about some wind going on down there, demon-people saying it's important to take action in order to avoid a little summer breeze! Must be satanic cannibals behind this heinousness! I hope...
