    Sylvia Browne, Coronavirus, and Predictions about Headline-making Events

    Hey all, Just wanted to throw this out there: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/sylvia-browne-coronavirus/ I’m actually kinda impressed by this. I remember Browne from when I was a kid, seeing her on the Montell Williams show and feeling kinda edgy for watching it, since I wasn’t supposed to...

    Trump Consciousness

    Hi Sam, I'll answer your questions though I'm not sure that I'll be engaging in much further conversation on these political topics for a couple reasons: 1. Doesn't look like Bernie (and especially not Warren) is a contender for much longer. So, this is now, for me, a moot point. 2. I think...

    Trump Consciousness

    My take on "capitalism has a proven record of raising the living standards of the most, for the most throughout its history" is that it doesn't really take into account the kind of socialist protections seen in the Eurpoean countries - American allies. I think we're generally lumping them in...

    Sam, thanks for your response. I don't personally see Sanders/Warren as offering proposals at all related to the forms of socialism/communism that they are frequently caricatured as promoting - even (or especially) by the democratic party mainstream. Both Sanders and Warren offer proposals on...

    Perhaps this isn't the correct thread to post this question, and perhaps I should create a new thread, but since this is the active political thread on Skeptiko, I figured I'd post here first and see where it goes. I truly believe that the NDE, taken as a whole, offers a genuine revelation to...

    Just finished reading the Russell essay. Don’t know much about Russell, and it’s hard for me to thoroughly assess his argument about the future changing at an exponential rate and taking us to a rapid end, however, it sure seems plausible to me. My feeling as an older youngish person has long...

    I’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out (and utilize) the esoteric traditions, both East and West, and I keep coming back to the NDE, too. I have looked to the stories of NDErs for guidance and understanding and generally have found more satisfying answers there than elsewhere. The only...

    Just wanna say that I agree with you in that I think this is a “perennial” issue, as you put it. There is likely some genetic both/and/or environmental trigger situation that is at least partly behind pedophilia so we should expect to see this cropping up throughout history (which we do) and...

    Eric, Just want to say I share your feeling that there’s something fishy about this story. Many of your objections were thoughts that also crossed my mind. That said, I don’t know what kind of endgame she may be pursuing if any at all. Perhaps there’s no further point than to stay right where...

    Answering my own question: They're the self-same person. In any case, I'd think learning tai chi and developing a "strength of love" would be good for those in the military. https://rviewer.com/Remote_Viewing_Blog/f-holmes-skip-atwater/

    Interesting. Doesn't appear nefarious, though. Is Frederick Atwater any relation to Skip Atwater?

    I'd be interested in hearing more about this too, erickh. In the last episode there was a brief flirtation around the idea that Robert Monroe (who is the source of the idea of "loosh") may have had some MKULTRA connections. That wasn't nailed down definitively, but it was floated for a minute...

    Alex, you mention in the show that you’re grateful you took up yoga when you did because you feel it isn’t being taught as effectively as it once was... or something to that effect. Do you have any recommendations as to what resources you feel would be helpful to people starting out now?
