A thread for those things that don't really go in any of the other threads, that you want to share with the rest, and have a discussion about, but not necessarily want to start your own thread for.

Message 80007 - Posted: 5 Aug 2017, 22:49:55 UTC

Thanks Giorgo, you've made my evening. A real bit of thinking needed here, explained in point four.

I was watching Ancient Aliens tonight, it's really entertaining what they come up with at times. This time they were going on about reincarnation.
As the show progressed we came up to the part where there's four ways to see reincarnation:

1. You die, your soul uploads to 'the cloud' and after a while downloads into a new body somewhere on this world. Can be close to your time of death, can be thousands of years between them.

2. You die, your soul uploads to 'the cloud' and after a while downloads into a new body. This new body can be any sentient being, which includes all larger animals on this Earth.

3. You die, your soul uploads to 'the cloud' and after a while downloads into several new bodies, each of which will try to finish one of the tasks that your previous incarnation hadn't done yet. This accounts for there being a lot more humans and animals on this earth.

4. You die, your soul uploads to 'the cloud' and after a while downloads into a new body. This new body can be any sentient being in the Universe. This includes aliens and alien animals on alien planets. Alien souls can also download into human bodies and other sentient beings here on Earth.

Have fun thinking that over. :)

I was watching Ancient Aliens tonight

I was channel flipping one evening and came across that show, apparently Leonardo da vinci couldn't have come up with his inventions all by himself. He was taught by an alien possibly via telepathy. Especially because the amoured car he came up with is clearly UFO in design:

I usually enjoy watching Ancient Aliens. I don't care if it makes any sense or not. Some episodes are better than others, but in general it's a fun escape.

They will make them all the time people will watch them. And if it's on a commercial channel, the advertisers will pay to showcase their products.

It's the people that take this stuff seriously that we should be worried about.

Naw, the ones we should be really worried about are the ones who debunk all theories & concepts while at the same time believe that aliens visited the Earth :-)

Orion contains Betelgeuse which of course was the home place of Zaphod Beetbebrox


4t is was Ford prefect was from Belelgeuse and Zaphod who invented the pan galactic gargle blaster was Ford's Cousin or some relation , will have to watch the old BBC series I've got that was made back in the time of LSD being LSD and mushrooms were mushrooms ( but BT peope wouldn't know bout that would they ) . Whatever DON'T PANIC :-)

Isis 4t thats what Bin Ladens people and the taliban morphed into ;-) ( I know Egyptian god etc so no need to start there ok )

C'mon Chris this is getting a bit close to conspiracy and next you'll be going on bout the Stargate ( SG-1 or whatever version ) hehe ( ain't just a film and Tv series if you know , some peole even say that's what the Gulf wars were really about )

But Interesting is it not that the main Egyptian pyramids are apparently laid out in exact correlation with Orion's belt?

you missed out " at this time " and the tunnels / channels in the pyramids look / point to certain stars in that constelation Orion on certain days .

Here comes Von Danaken , " Chrriot of the gods " anyone

On the subject:
- of Ancient Aliens, if you have never watched the show, you're not really entitled to debunk what they have to say either. With them being in their 12th season you had chance enough. No access to the History Channel? That's why people invented P2P.
- of reincarnation, I'd suggest you look at the works of Dr. Ian Stevenson. No, I won't point to any article, you can use the powers of Google, Bing or Yahoo yourself.
- of needing to be the only person who's right, correct, untouchable, 100% of the time, I don't mind you having your own opinion on things, but then do allow others to have their opinion as well.

Think you can clean your monitors with Windex?
That you shouldn't use a magnetic screwdriver inside your PC?
That when you add two 4GB GPUs that you have one 8GB GPU?
That when you add more fans for cooling, that it's going to be louder?

Read Debunking Popular PC Myths to learn whether you're right.

Bought it in a charity shop for one hundred pennies. Never read it, just bought it because the title made me laugh :)

Message 80140 - Posted: 12 Aug 2017, 23:08:25 UTC - in response to Message 80139.  

Recent exciting discoveries by independent researchers have dramatically challenged our understanding of ancient Egypt, raising profound questions about our past. STARGATE CONSPIRACY exposes the most insidious & dangerous plan of our times. It involves intelligence agencies, politicians, bestselling writers, scientists & industrialists. The authors believe that this conspiracy, centred upon the eternal mysteries of ancient Egypt, targets & threatens us all. Tracing the identity of the groups involved, Lynn Picknett & Clive Prince argue that at the heart of this strange plan is the belief that the ancient Egyptian gods were-and are-real extraterrestrials, about to return through the 'stargate' between our world & theirs. They suggest that the US-funded excavations on the Giza plateau - officially denied, but for which the authors produce documented evidence - now appear to be the result of directives allegedly received through communication with beings of higher intelligence, who are instructing the conspirators to lay the foundations for great global changes.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists confirm the suggestion and ask you if you want further evidence to look up.

Do you think they'll be returning via a Chappa'ai? Hang on, i've got the book. Should probably read it. Lol :)

I'll let you all know about it, or not, you know, because i'll be a part of it. Or maybe i will, because there's a book about it. Hmm, these things are quite confusing. I'll tell you about it in secret then. I think.

In any case shouldn't these posts be moved to the conspiracy theories thread? Where's a mod when you need one?
No need. Perfectly acceptable here as it's nice to see a "needful" conversation without seeing "pseudo-superiority" rearing its ugly head.
