    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    Speaking of not listening or reading something, did you read through this thread? This is exactly the point we were making regarding Biblical literalism. I don’t think anybody in here is arguing in favor of the OT being taken literally, except maybe one. This is exactly the point a few of us...

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    That’s true. Most big belief systems have an origin myth. Scientology even has one, and SCIENCE has one. While there are certain bits of evidence pointing perhaps to something LIKE a Big Bang, we really have no clue whether it happened or not. Frankly, I’d be quite surprised if it all happened...

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    I think a lot of this blame might lie within the Old Testament. I always thought Christianity would’ve been much better if it had deep sixed the Old Testament entirely. The text seriously normalizes and justifies brutal and vile behavior in many many places. Often coming from the hand of God...

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    That’s were I’m at in my thinking. We can’t deny the benefits that Christianity has brought society, along with a few horrors. Have the positives outweighed the negatives? It probably depends upon who you ask, but overall there have been some profound benefits to society. But do we need it...

    Great post. Thank you for taking the time to write it up. Correct me if I’m wrong with what I say here. The Christian literalist thing was something that I had in mind (although I didn’t mention it) during my brief response to Gary above. The Biblical literalist position has caused all sorts...

    Even when I was a Christian I don’t think I would’ve been particularly convinced by that from a strict historical standpoint. As it stands now, even less likely.

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    The continents split apart way before mankind existed. The old theory was that man originated in Africa and went into Europe and Asia, and from Asia through Siberia and into the Americas. Though newer data suggests that parts of this narrative may be on shaky ground, according to some in the...

    Intentionally initiated OBES vs NDEs

    I do not remember which shows thread this occurred in, but some time back I was attempting to explain why I feel that “non-traumic” OBEs are a more valuable form of data (depending upon the experiencer) to be used in our understanding of these “afterlife states.” I was having a difficult time...

    Debra Diamond Brings Wall Street Smarts to NDEs, and Mediumship |424|

    For sure. I think we are multidimensional and “multipersonal” (for lack of a better word). “The Higher self” is a re-occurring theme in NDEs and OBEs. A lot of good channeled sources similarly mention it. Which you take with a grain of salt, but it’s a common concept.

    Debra Diamond Brings Wall Street Smarts to NDEs, and Mediumship |424|

    I like what Jim said above. We get contradictory information from people regarding events HERE ON EARTH. I’d expect even more regarding information that comes realms/dimensions which are very difficult to glean information from. I think some people confuse messages, some people are probably...

    Mary Rodwell’s 3,000 Cases Suggest Ongoing Genetic Manipulation |423|

    As somebody with a Doctoral degree, I completely agree with this. There is this prevalent notion amongst the populace that you cannot speak about a topic with any level of credibility if you don’t have formal education in the topic, as if schooling is the only way to learn about something. I...

    Mary Rodwell’s 3,000 Cases Suggest Ongoing Genetic Manipulation |423|

    This was the main thrust of my entire post. It becomes really complicated when you begin to think about how multifaceted purpose can be. And it appears that there are “purposes within purposes within purposes.” It’s impossible to make sense of.

    The Diet Wars: Low Carb or Low Fat

    Here’s how I went from “skinny fat” to lean with some muscle tone. I try to eat as many vegetables as possible. Adding a dash of salt and butter is okay. I snack on them throughout the day as much as I can and prepare them as full meals. I eat fruit in moderation (mostly berries). I eat healthy...

    Mary Rodwell’s 3,000 Cases Suggest Ongoing Genetic Manipulation |423|

    If we are the result of alien experimentation (I don’t subscribe to this idea but certainly do not rule it out), an interesting question would be, “how does this square and harmonize with the metaphysical information we get from channeled sources, NDEs, OBEs, religious saints and sages etc...

    Courtney Brown, The Future of Scientific Remote Viewing |421|

    Are we happier as a society than they Natives where? If we knew the answer to that, we’d be well on our way to deciding a key component of the “debate”, if that’s what this is. If you wanna crown a materialistic victor, then the “winner” if obvious. I’d prefer to look elsewhere. But I don’t...
