You have that backwards

In the thread this thread is whining about a claim was made that American Indians are jewish and have the dnA markers to prove it which is false.

It was further stated that Hopis and Hawaiians are related which is also false.

The claims were supported by websites which give zero references and are known to support bullshit for fame glory and money.

There were numerous links to people from the very groups involved showing that most of the people involved were frauds and that the claims were fabrications.

I am indeed sorry if you are one of the groups of people who think everything they read on the internet is true but I find it odd that you take great offense that all people do not.

I actually don't agree with the claims made in that thread.

I can see why you would take offense to my posts in this thread. You made numerous posts in that thread using the aforementioned label I pointed out in my previous posts yes? What does that actually prove in the context of the discussion? Nothing. I mean do you suspect individuals are likely to come across posts like that and concede that it must be "new age woo-woo / b.s." just because this guy says so in his posts?

If you want to disprove an assertion, all you have to do is illustrate how the individual(s) making the claims are not credible/reliable and/or demand actual credible evidence that establishes that the assertions being made are valid. That's all. Stick to the actual subject matter at hand and articulate your thoughts because repeatedly tossing out the same old labels to attempt to discredit something does nothing to actually further the discussion/debate. It's tiresome to read and results in flame wars that add nothing to the content of the site.

Re: This Used To Be A Woo-Woo Site, What Happened????
I agree! I have seen many "woo woo" threads and almost all of the replies are debunkers, shills, comedians and the like.

There's also way too many religious threads. I understand everything is up for discussion but this isn't a Christian website.

The thing that really got me today was some jerk that kept trying to derail the thread by accusing the OP and anyone that was interested in the thread subject, of being woo-woos.

It made me stop and think WTF? do they not realize where they are? The IS THE Lunatic Fringe. Woo-woo isn't an insult but a badge of honor here.

Re: This Used To Be A Woo-Woo Site, What Happened????
I just get tired of reading the incessant, generic labeling of ideas/concepts that individuals don't agree with or find objectionable as if they truly believe that just slapping a subjective label on something is a sufficient means to 'debunk' it. Oh that's 'New age' BS this - 'Luciferian' deception that. Anytime anyone brings up anything related to Eastern philosophy you always see this crap transpire. If you want someone to take your claims seriously then you better demonstrate the awareness & wherewithal to actually ARTICULATE exactly WHY something is false or incorrect from a sensible/rational perspective that others can attempt to understand and consider.

No one is going to seriously believe you know what you are talking about when the extent of your refutation of an idea/concept consists of branding something with label that you find objectionable. All this does is shift focus away from the topic at hand and resort to pointless arguments/flaming over labels and detracts from the actual subject matter being discussed.

It is discouraging to see discussions frequently deteriorate into these types of responses and it highlights the extent of peoples' subconscious conditioning where they cannot explain their thoughts/perspective in any clear and concise manner - only have emotional reactions to ideas/concepts based on conditioned responses and automatic associations.

Well there are pretty good reasons for my stance.

I am tired of repeating the same lessons for people who watch What the Bleep and explaining that nothing said in the movie is real and none of the claims are proven or even widely acknowledged.

I love the point you're making.
People often demand you PROVE whatever you're talking about...
However, those same people usually don't know what makes a proof a proof and wouldn't know a proof if it slapped them in the face. It doesn't matter to them anyway. They demand "GIVE ME PROOF!", using it as a way to put you on the defensive, halt forward progress of your arguments and shut you up. They could care less about innovative thoughts, new viewpoints, or the truth itself....because those things are of importance to them only as long as they can still be as happy as they want to be.
Most arguments on the Left and in the Mainstream devolve into those "Prove it. Cite it. Now I'm going to make fun of you." types of arguments. People think it makes them seem smarter by doing so...because the tv taught them that that's what "smart" people do.

We aren't a science site which has a requirement to prove the existence or non-existence of X, Y or Z. Some of what I would consider the way out there threads have actually gotten me to thinking "What if??" and lead me to do more research. If that person isn't threatening me with personal harm or threatening to cause harm to others for not agreeing with them, then they can believe as they wish. What harm does it do to you - personally? Do we spank children for talking about fairies or unicorns? Every great discovery in human history has sounded like complete and utter bullshit to the people of the day. If those people allowed all of those screaming bullshit to stop them, we wouldn't have the computer I am typing on now, space travel, airplanes, radio telescope arrays...etc. None of know for certain what is and isn't 100% true about the nature of the universe we live in.

The problem is the people who continually call others sheep are just sheep to woo and react with hatred and malice towards others.

People like to feel superior well get over it no one is.

making complete false statements is called lying

And not researching claims gives these lies "cred" but it doesn't make it any less of a lie it jut makes it harder to point out as a lie later.

You want truth fine......but don't thread ban people so you can feel all superior and continue to spread and build the lie monster.

But bullshit to whom? You? What does it matter? Seriously. In the end of all things, what does it really matter?

We aren't a science site which has a requirement to prove the existence or non-existence of X, Y or Z. Some of what I would consider the way out there threads have actually gotten me to thinking "What if??" and lead me to do more research. If that person isn't threatening me with personal harm or threatening to cause harm to others for not agreeing with them, then they can believe as they wish. What harm does it do to you - personally? Do we spank children for talking about fairies or unicorns? Every great discovery in human history has sounded like complete and utter bullshit to the people of the day. If those people allowed all of those screaming bullshit to stop them, we wouldn't have the computer I am typing on now, space travel, airplanes, radio telescope arrays...etc. None of know for certain what is and isn't 100% true about the nature of the universe we live in. We are all on the same journey.

I like brain-storming.

If you post it, I will participate, Rev :) You're just cool anyway :)

To me, GLP is thinking out loud. I post and discuss many things which I neither believe nor disbelieve - just mentally exploring the possibilities, asking questions and most of all, seeing other's viewpoints.
 Quoting: Rev StarGazer

Same here. What I believe changes almost daily as I assimilate new information into my ever expanding and changing understanding of life, the universe, and everything. I have no idea what will be true for me tomorrow. It gives me a reason to get up in the morning since I'm just too curious for my own damn good :D

Re: This Used To Be A Woo-Woo Site, What Happened????
The pinned threads have improved because of green pins.

The level of quality answers depends on the topic:

battle of the sexes = better than ever

discussion of moral issues = dominated by Christians but that's not all bad at all

discussion of Fukushima = this is the best place for that

discussion of esoteric stuff = worse than ever

Overall, GLP is trending up compared to the last several years to be honest.

It's nowhere near as good as 2005 on most topics but it's better than ever on many many topics.

But that is a personal insult meant to elicit negative emotion and not positive discussion. When presented with such things we have a choice - be offended and attack, ask for clarification, or ignore.

It is insulting as hell to the American Indians to see all this bullshit promoted and spread as what they think.

Stop following the bullshitters because it is the ultimate insult to the tribes named.

The Hopi are NOT Hawaiian nor Jewish nor Tibetan nor Maya.

They know where they came from and they have asked numerous times to be left out of the whole new age woo woo scam.

Stop insulting people
