Cool site goodluck :)


I take it from Dr. P that this is some sort of automated response?


Could someone explain to me what the motive is for something like this?



Hi all. I'm back from a 2 day ban because I reported the 'cool site goodluck' posts quoted above as abuse. I thought TPTB wanted to know when the spambot was posting, so I reported them, and got banned for it. Was also warned in the reply email not to do it again.

Posting this as a warning to others -- don't report the spambot, lest you share my ignimonious fate.


I've been reporting it.
 Quoting: Menow 1084089



I probably reported it half a dozen times before I got whacked.

I won't report it again!

Oh ***PLEASE*** do!!!!
The best advice we can give on this matter is to read with your heart as well as your mind. Follow the flow, let the nuances lie unanswered and unchallenged in your mind. Treat this as a garden you are walking through for the first time, and experience it fully without trying to categorize it! Much of what you will learn will be processed in your subconscious, and influence your conscious mind later. If you must dissect each phrase, and correlate it with each piece of information taken from another source, you will trash much of what you could otherwise gain. Live in the gray, not always insisting on black and white and strict compartmentalizations.

What is a 'weather disturbance', Andrew? Don't you understand that there has been 'weird weather' since there has BEEN weather?
 Quoting: Menow 1084089


Natural Disasters on Increase – Insurers confirm

"There has been a dramatic increase in frequency and severity of natural disasters, now killing and injuring many millions of people every year and causing mounting economic losses".
- UN Environment Programme (UNEP) director,
former German environment minister
Klaus Topfer, 1999.

Insurance companies, globally, are already feeling the effects of this.

The Rising Cost of Natural Hazards
As recently as the 1950s, the average cost of catastrophic events was a mere $3.9 billion per year. Since 1950, the cost of natural disasters worldwide has increased, dramatically.
Violent weather cost the world a record $89 billion during 1998, more than in all of the 1980s, per the Worldwatch Institute and Munich Re.
Total disaster-related economic losses hit record 232 billion US dollars in 2008, continuing a long-term trend.

On the Rise
"Have climate-related disasters increased? The answer is yes".
- Debarati Guha-Sapir, director of the Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED).

In a report issued December 1999, Munich Re, the world's largest reinsurer (insurer of insurance companies), noted that the number of natural disasters has increased more than fourfold since the 1950s.

Disasters Quadruple over Last 20 Years: Oxfam
Nov 25, 2007
From 120 disasters a year on average in the early 1980s, to 2007, which alone had 950 – the highest number since Munich Re records began, in 1974.

During the 2000-2009 period, there were 385 disasters on average, an increase of 233% to 1980-1989, and of 67%to 1990-1999, according to CRED data.

Weather-related events, such as droughts, storms and floods, have made up the majority of disasters overall, increasing by as much as 350 percent since data was first collected in 1950. Increase of deluges by 57% and droughts by 47% comprises for most of these numbers.
Since the 1980s, Earthquakes, which are not weather-related, have risen by around 50 percent.
- Munich Re in a study with the UNEP


The group acknowledges that we should not be misled by the absence of "mega-disasters", and warns that much more such extremes are to be expected in the future.

Continue to watch the signs. ROFLMAO. How old are you, Andrew? I've been around for 60 years and let me tell you, weird weather, volcanos and quakes are nothing new. Some years are worse than others. You talk about the disasters in terms of human and material loss. Yeah, disasters affect more people than ever because there are more people than ever before, and a lot of them are living in areas that are prone to disasters. Insurance companies are paying out more? Probably because property values are the highest they have ever been. The earthquake in Haiti had horrible impact on the people, but the quake was not that strong. I have been in quakes of similar magnitude and nothing bad happened. Haiti suffered so badly because of poor construction that had already been subjected to weather events and quakes. The quake in Chile was stronger but it didn't cause nearly as much damage. As for Oxfam, having dealt with these bloodsuckers myself in the past, their opinion means nothing. It's just another excuse for them to extract money from people to further their idiotic programs and skim off the top for personal gain. Keep watching those signs Andrew. I am sure that when you are an old man like me you will still be watching and waiting for the big event to happen. What a waste of youth, hiding under the bed waiting for bad things to happen!

So that means that the "Zeta" statements that we debunkers were hired to counter the 'truth' of Zetatalk, back then, was YET ANOTHER ZETA LIE, hmm Andrew?


This brings me back to my original question. When did Zetatalk begin to say ANYTHING which was specifically accurate? How about you point to something CONCRETE you can defend, Andrew? Not just vague claims which are open to interpretation like: 'weird weather'.

I can point to dozen obvious false claimes like: "Earth halted in orbit"; "PX near the Sun"; "Moon abnormally rotating"; "Satellites failing"; "Sun out of place"; etc, etc, etc. Can you point to ONE CONCRETE CLAIM you can show is accurate?

I agree.

From what I heard about Haiti, most of their concrete buildings were constructed without rebars, just concrete blocks with no steel support. And the shanty towns built on hills are put together like a house of cards. It's no wonder it all came tumbling down. We felt it strong over here and I'm 200 miles away.

The Rising Cost of Natural Hazards
As recently as the 1950s, the average cost of catastrophic events was a mere $3.9 billion per year.term trend.
 Quoting: andrew


In 1955 the average cost of a new home in the U.S. was ten thousand dollars.

The global population was a third of what it is now.

If there a hundred people living in a flood zone the cost of a catastrophic event is a lot higher than if there are only 33 living there.

You're also not taking into account negative but explainable effects of human activity such as deforestation.

Natural Disasters on Increase – Insurers confirm

"There has been a dramatic increase in frequency and severity of natural disasters, now killing and injuring many millions of people every year and causing mounting economic losses".
- UN Environment Programme (UNEP) director,
former German environment minister
Klaus Topfer, 1999.

Insurance companies, globally, are already feeling the effects of this.

The Rising Cost of Natural Hazards
As recently as the 1950s, the average cost of catastrophic events was a mere $3.9 billion per year. Since 1950, the cost of natural disasters worldwide has increased, dramatically.
Violent weather cost the world a record $89 billion during 1998, more than in all of the 1980s, per the Worldwatch Institute and Munich Re.
Total disaster-related economic losses hit record 232 billion US dollars in 2008, continuing a long-term trend.

On the Rise
"Have climate-related disasters increased? The answer is yes".
- Debarati Guha-Sapir, director of the Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED).

In a report issued December 1999, Munich Re, the world's largest reinsurer (insurer of insurance companies), noted that the number of natural disasters has increased more than fourfold since the 1950s.

Nov 25, 2007
From 120 disasters a year on average in the early 1980s, to 2007, which alone had 950 – the highest number since Munich Re records began, in 1974.

During the 2000-2009 period, there were 385 disasters on average, an increase of 233% to 1980-1989, and of 67%to 1990-1999, according to CRED data.

Weather-related events, such as droughts, storms and floods, have made up the majority of disasters overall, increasing by as much as 350 percent since data was first collected in 1950. Increase of deluges by 57% and droughts by 47% comprises for most of these numbers.
Since the 1980s, Earthquakes, which are not weather-related, have risen by around 50 percent.
