GLP and the eschatology essay of 2002
Back in my early days of my college classes, the Philosophy of Science professor demanded a paper on Non-scientific sources of knowledge, I had to expose a case study and describe the method, etc. The professor presented some subjects we should choose to work on. This was one of those moments in life we make a lifetime critical decision without noticing.

Among the subjects I picked up Eschatology, which is a field that studies doom-saying, grossly speaking. The paper was no big deal and during my internet searches to develop my work I stumbled upon a website called "Educate Yourself", where I found Planet X texts, which called my attention. Following the hyperlinks finding Zetatalk was inevitable. I found a wealth of eschatological material there, in one single place.

During almost two months gathering data, something called my attention: a great ammount of references to a source called Godlikeproductions, which I started to read as a lurker, then I created my old account which perished along many others in the system crash of Christmas 2005 after 13,000+ posts.

As the result of those striking coincidences/convergences, a guy from my class chose the same subject as mine and also made his way to GLP. During those decisive eventes some win the lottery, some become free from a terminal disease, some have a spiritual experience, some make a great discovery, some meet their love for life. We started exchanging ideas over the forum, exchanged PMs, admiring each other and eventually discovered we were classmates... LOL! He is now my husband! Thanks GLP!

GLP evidently is a symbol of my happiness. Opening this webpage brings good memories. Besides that, I enjoyed the fun of debunking nonsense, watching the woo woo responses, making on-line friends.

Everything has to come to an end. Even the Sun will die some day. So enjoy every moment of your lives. Pay attention to all opportunities surrounding you, beware of the negative aspects in life that try to distract you from the beauty surrounding us.

GLP had its role in my life, now having reduced my participation owing to my new dues since I left my parents, have a house to run and a family to take care of. Should GLP end, lets store good memories of it and try to be happy, thinking of it whenever sadness strikes.
I am what I read.

Re: GLP and the eschatology essay of 2002
I have mixed feelings about GLP coming to an end. On one hand, I have learned about many things I would never have known and expanded on the things that I did. On the other, I tire of the incessant negativity and fear, anger and meanspiritedness, why borrow more than your life has already? I spend time here I could be utilizing on more profitable things.

I came to GLP after finding EducateYourself, and after hanging out on Freedom Crow's Nest for awhile. Kent's website led me here. RIP, Kent.

If it does come to an end, I will persevere. I feel I am going in the right direction, now. But, I will miss many of the posters here. Those who agree with me, and those who do not, you have all made me stretch and learn and grow.

Perhaps it is time to make a more direct link to those you enjoy here, before it is too late? The noose will perhaps tighten in the times ahead for this sort of free-for-all, free-thinking, free-speaking format.

Indeed. Too much hate speech does bad to your mind. I had to keep a safe exposure in the last two years. The mind is everything.

Re: GLP and the eschatology essay of 2002
Interesting story Idol, but I think you missed the real popint: Your professor is obviously in on the conspiracy, and you and your husband have been manipulated into behaving as you do.

It's clear you (and your spouse) have the sort of genes THEY want to propagate, for their own purposes, no doubt.

By the way, as a college graduate, you're talking way over the heads of most people here. Try to dumb it down a little next time.

From the heart, well written and very touching, Idol!

The second from last paragraph is worth dwelling upon, and remembering, every second of one's life, imho.

MARRIED HIM?...

I am sorry Idol...Wasn't it proven that you are actually a guy?.....The guy who runs the "Bad Astronomy website?

To FINALLY disprove this nonsense, can you PLEASE post JUST ONE other picture of yourself to show us that you are, in fact, a women?

That shouldn't be too hard right?..surely you have taken another pic of yourself in yout lifetime than just that avatar?


[link to www.bautforum.com]

From the above

I think the avatar is Deborah Lodi (note reversal of letters), and the poster idol_harobed is her boyfriend. He has a big chip on his shoulder because she was taken in by Nancy and the PX stuff for a while.

Yep. All this is true.

This OP used to use an ugly monster AV with long fingers
and a disgusting face back in the early days of GLP.

Then one day......this AV "popped" up.

This AV has been in use for several years. (over 5)

And, it's true about the Nancy PX stuff too.

I remember it well.

This poster is evasive and phony, and made many enemies among the early GLP posters.
