Study blames YouTube for spread of Flat Earth movement

This and any anti-vax crap should just be deleted on the spot from YouTube and social media. Stop giving these morons a forum to project from.
Wow I was about to comment that the flat earth movement was started by the same satanists who control government/media/music/hollywood. They put out this and other insane ideas to discredit any truth that THEY don't want you to know. Truth like what? Vaccines are evil and poison...and uneccesary. You think injecting aborted baby parts is healthy? That is an abomination snuck into the brainwashed masses. That along with all the other poison. Fake news? It's on the CDC vaccine insert...you can read it.
The most important underground news on the planet is that the bible is true, and the planet is about to be purged...and yes Trump is about to bring you the antichrist from Revelation 13. Don't ignore the most important TRUE news you'll never hear from the satanist system.

Go ahead and say I'm crazy and blah blah blah. You've been brainwashed since birth. WAKE UP and believe Jesus. Don't just believe what you are told. Have you actually read the bible...or prayed for God to show you the truth? The evidence is out there. MILLIONS have been proven that HE IS LORD.

There are many other places you could put these "self evident truths" (to you at least) to better use.

For example, the next time you're picketing in front of an abortion clinic trying to save the inborn "souls about to be murdered", why not offer to pay for those children live's, shelter, and educations, instead of merely running you mouth saying someone else is a sinner, and they shouldn't be allowed to have an abortion.

Or, instead of running on about "Trump ushering in the Anti-Christ", why not embrace science and medicine, and accept the fact the Mr. Trump is an egomaniac, a sociopath, and a pathological liar, things which can be verified in the realm of reality, not by some bizarre supernatural reckoning of your unilateral opinion.

It's obvious by the demeanor of your diatribe, that you really believe you have all the answers, to every question ever asked, and that answer, by the sanctity of your word, is "Jesus". Can you really have a single answer to all questions? I think if that was asked to any relatively sane person, the answer would be a resounding "NO"!

While I grant you .our discussions in the realm of technical news do often stray toward politics, and religion, in all frankness, they don't go completely off the road and over the cliff as does your contribution.

With those thoughts in mind, I'm directing this dialog to our site owner @Julio Franco, and our full time moderator @mailpup to request a decision on how we should proceed with your continued membership.

If it were up to me, I'd simply ban you. Which in turn would give you the opportunity to gloat about how the word is being stifled, and we weren't able to wrap our heads around the ultimate truth. But don't forget, you could always start you own website where you could spout "the truth", until you were, (figuratively, of course), blue in the face.

PS, if you want a more rational explanation of why people eat Tide Pods or start "flat earth" websites on YouTube, it's because Homo sapiens, self aware chimpanzee that our species is, gets tired of simply staring at its own reflection in a mirror, and feels the needs to bask in the attention of the other members of the tribe, no matter what the horrific cost in dignity and self respect that may precipitate..

Your welcome in advance...and apology accepted also in advance.

Because religion can not be disproven. And there is a reason for that.
But SCIENCE is not claiming anything - RELIGION is...

Thus it is up to religious to PROVE their claims.

It is not up to me to prove they are wrong, as I don't claim to have the answers, I just doubt their assertions.

Peace...

You see that is where you are mistaken. Science is not, but people are using it to try and disprove religion. I'm telling you it can not be done, therefore we have no need in proving the validity of our belief.
Come on Cliff, simply saying "because" doesn't work on us anymore, we're much older than six.

That's a great comparison as nothing in life is without risk. We simply accept the risks of some things as necessary to do our jobs, live our lifestyles, etc. Electrical fires burn down houses and occasionally kill people but few recommend removing our electrical hookups.
Well, why would anyone do that when arc-fault interrupters are a better, but perhaps not perfect, solution?

Say what you want about his policies and personality but I'm pretty sure no scientist has ever suggested Donald Trump doesn't exist ;)
He certainly does exist is the physical realm. However his concept of the, "truth", and the fact he is by all observations, a pathological liar, separates him from our perception of physical reality. You know what I mean, Komrade?

Seriously?

There is a really good Ted Talk out there that I cannot remember the name or the person who did the talk. I'll look for it when I have time and post the name of it.

Basically, she stated she grew up in a religious family, as a young child, was taken to protest events and held signs for her parents that expressed something along the lines of God will damn you and suck the life out of you unless join our religion.

To make the long story short, she eventually met and married one of those people her parents had her railing against and accepted that the message that she was propagating was not conceived in the love and understanding that her religion claimed to profess. As I see it, she was brainwashed from birth.

As I see it, we all have the capacity for darkness and light in us, and projecting that darkness on a mythical being does nothing WRT accepting responsibility to act in ways that are gregarious toward other life. In fact, that kind of projection runs a high risk of unjustly demonizing anything that one is not willing or unable to understand.

.
That is, in essence, the entire operating principle behind "th Holy Roman Empire". Constantine, crowned emperor in 313 AD, was the first Christian to hold that title. The Western half of the Roman Empire, fell in 476 AD. After which date, Rome itself was no longer able to control its empire by threat of physical violence.

Accordingly, as the people accepted Christianity, Rome switched its tactics to control the people through the fear of eternal damnation. The popes controlled marital unions throughout the formerly occupied territories, and waged war "in the name of God and Jesus" throughout the middle ages.

Fast forward to today. their cloistered priests can no longer accept and are not able to survive and compete in the secular world.

Accordingly, .the concept of "papal infallibility", has given them leave to pursue whatever deviant needs they so choose.

From the point of mannerism and affect, I find it difficult to distinguish between "piety", and overt homosexuality..

At some point here, I feel obliged to warn you, they'll be trying to teach your children to, "talk with their mouths full", which is after all, a behaviour you've worked so hard to discourage.

The Vatican is its own country, and a rich one at that. It got that way, from hundreds of millions of fools throughout the ages, trying to buy their way into "heaven"..

It doesn't work on you because you refuse to walk the path. The journey will convince you. But if you never start, there is nothing anyone can say either way.
Cliff, I can like, loathe, hate, or love, without the assistance of Jesus, any god, or the bible. The reason for that is, I have what I think is called "a conscience".

Our higher brain functions ostensibly supply one to each and every one of us, to use at our own, and individual, discretion..

Na Dude, spiders don't crawl on the ground, they come down from the ceiling.

You must have them confused with ticks, which come from your dog...:cool:
Spiders, sneaky buggers. Catch them from time to time trying to land on my head. They really thought I was a big snack.

(y) (Y) Absolutely - especially in modern times when so many are corrupted by seeing themselves as above us all. While the rogue clergy give those who are not a bad name, it is difficult to know whether those who preach actually practice what they preach.

As I see it, the only place that a church need live is within us all.

The early history of the catholic church is interesting, too. Essentially, there was a schism where part of the faithful sought to nourish the spirituality within and part of the faithful sought to impose spirituality by decree. Those who took the path of imposing spirituality by decree resorted to tactics like name calling, pagan, for instance, and thus invoked a kind of mob mentality wherein anyone so branded was evil. @cliffordcooley does this tactic sound familiar in modern times?

Perhaps it will help to look at them as nature's pest control - assuming you don't provoke the more dangerous of them. In those areas where the more dangerous spiders live, it is wise to be cautious and understand their behavior.

Fun facts to know and share, the Spanish Inquisition didn't officially end until 1834 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Inquisition

Ponder the things which had gone before. We discovered the world was round, (despite the still extant deniers), the rise of Islam, and the protestant reformation. Yet they still kept it up with the whips and chains until near the beginning of the industrial revolution.

I don't bother them in the wild. They get in my house, they're done.
