NOWHERE does the instruction tell you to call 9-1-1, which is the best possible use of your time.

If those e-mailings were honest, they would say: “Before doing all the other steps in this mailing, first call the undertaker, follow all the other steps, wait for pickup. wink

I’m so annoyed with irrational people at the moment!!  :-/ People whom I know personally… And then I ‘discover’ they have some bizarre notion about reality.

I feel your pain, buddy!  Some time ago, on my favorite Star Trek forum, someone posted an entire topic on “Ascension symptoms”... http://www.feelgoodgirl.com/ascension-symptoms

I tried to engage this person is a reasonably intelligent conversation about the topic, but I had to keep mentally biting my lip to keep from saying what I really thought about it all.

I believe you participated in one group whose message is not an accurate representation of what I will call the shift, the awakening, the ascension, beginning of the new world December 21st, 2012, Christ Consciousness whatever.

Christ Consciousness . . .  well that makes it clear as mud.

I don’t write to change your mind, merely to offer a different perspective. Your journey is your own, and as energy healer you are already participating in that which you have bashed, which makes me giggle. You are an energy worker, a light worker, a healer. The work you do personally is so important to this shift, in helping other people awaken to their own power. Bless you and thank you :D
...
The Ascension is not about new age rapture, but about the awakening of human consciousness.
...
Now about these Ascension Symptoms. In a way you are right, is it about intolerance of the current reality, because the currently reality sucks. It is unhealthy to our souls, our energy and our bodies. As we begin to “ascend” or rather open our chakras and re-awake the awesome energy system that is our body, we begin to energetically detox. . .

I personally think dismantling ClearChannel & Murdock’s news monopolies would do a hell of a lot more to awaken human consciousness.

Sadly with all the sources of misinformation available, confirmation bias has never been easier. People don’t want to change their minds, they want to be correct. I still don’t understand why so many people have such a difficult time being wrong.

I believe MacGyver mentioned it would be nice to have some sort of ‘certification’ system for websites, et al. I like the idea. However I’m not sure it would work because websites/sources we trust others don’t. There’s lot of folks who don’t trust da gub-ber-ment so sites like the CDC, FDA, et al. don’t mean anything to them. They like Dr. Oz and Mercola because they tell folks what they want to hear. If only people would realize how much money they throw away on fake remedies… Then again, that would be admitting they were wrong and foolish and we certainly can’t have folks poor delicate egos squashed in such a manner. wink

Take care,

Derek

The depressing part was that I expect Trekkies to have above average intelligence.  This guy was practically begging people to discuss this with him, so asked a few obvious questions.  He responded to each by posting another link!  I finally got frustrated and told him, “Listen, discussion is two people talking to EACH OTHER!  I don’t care what Oprah Winfrey thinks or what Shirley Maclaine thinks, I want to know what YOU think, in your own words!”  He responded with ANOTHER LINK!  And instantly got promoted to my Ignore list!

That was another side of my frustration as well. My friend stated that she thinks vaccines are dangerous. Someone else posted why? She then basically said, ‘Well, search Google and you’ll see.’

Umm… So she makes a claim and then expects those who don’t share that conviction to convince themselves of the validity of her argument?! <bangs head on wall again>

(Hmm… I’m going to need to do some repairs to the wall. Where’s my taping knife and some spackle?) smile

Take care,

Derek

It has an appeal. Problem is, who decides????


You might find yourself not liking the answer to that question.

The body of experts could be made up of whomever you trust. A government sponsored system should ideally be managed by experts in the field who rely on evidence based medicine much as the USPSTF does now when recommending screening tests only this agency could evaluate web sites. There would no doubt be controversy from the alt med community but if the group sticks with the method the USPSTF uses the scientific community would most likely support it.

Then the rational public would at least have some guidance that they dont get now. There is not much we can do for the rest.
