  1. What's happened to Mark Steele?

    Any talented psychics on the forum?

    Predict enough random stuff often enough and statistically some one at some time is going to hit a bulls eye! Is that relevant? Why shouldn't it be predicted by those claiming to able to predict such things? An opportunity to show their talents. Neither does it appear to have been picked up by the Global Consciousness Project. Again, disappointing, very disappointing... :(

    Well she was kind of correct I guess, but a bit vague and she mentioned other stuff too that didn't happen. Neither did she predict the magnitude of this current event. But surely, mediums, psychics, sensitives (or whatever you'd like to call them) should have seen this coming months or even years ago if they had any real talent. Disappointing, very disappointing indeed. There have been members here and on the previous forum who suggested they have these talents. But not one has come forth with a dated blog or video from, say last summer of before with a clear prediction. In stead they all appear to be conspicuous by their absence...

    Come on. No need to hide your lights under a bushel. Who predicted this international, world changing event...?
  5. I guess there must be a few psychics here. If so, just wondering when and where you predicted this new virus. Something this big (whether you believe it's real, imaginary, fake news, bioweapon, etc.) surely wasn't overlooked by genuine psychics. Maybe you all knew about it, but all agreed to keep it quite so as not to cause mass panic? Thank you. Janet

    First time I noticed it I was in a passenger jet over the Andes. As the 'spectre shadow' got smaller as we climbed, it just turned into a bright disc with no central aeroplane shadow. At the time I had no idea what it was. When it occurs in mist on the ground, the unwitting observer can be freaked out by it, and it's the source of a number of 'dark shadow/spectre' myths.

    Yes. Yes it does.

    Never heard of atmospheric light refraction? OK, how about a Fata Morgana? No, not heard of that either I expect. You probably need to do a bit of simple research...

    Any flat earthers about?

    God's word might be true in the original first version, but I doubt that holds true after it's been though various human interpretations and translations. Is it only the Judaeo-Christian god that has all the facts right? Where does The Book of Mormon sit in all this? I'm sure you're able to Google all the Bible verses we choose to ignore these days. e.g. Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. Leviticus 19:19 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads. Leviticus 19:27 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. Ephesians 6:5 NLT No one whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off shall be admitted to the assembly of the LORD. Deuteronomy 23:1 NRSV etc. Just Google "Bible verses ignored by Christians". You see, it was written for behaviour in a different world. If God created the laws of physics (man only discovered them) then the laws of physics demand that objects with diameters of more than about 1000 miles (i.e. sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium) are approximately spherical. Why should Earth be the only observable object that size or greater which does not comply - particularly as measurements going back thousands of years show it is approximately spherical?

    That's just one English translation from a widely accepted KJV edition. What do other English translations say? You need to be very careful when quoting from the Bible. What does it say in the original text? Have you checked that quote from the version written in ancient Hebrew, Sumerian, Aramaic and Koine Greek? You also have to frame it in the cultural and philosophical understanding of the time. Using the Bible for any kind of guidance in the 21st Century is a whole other thread. It was written for (mostly) useful guidance and as a way of explaining things - at the time. It's a human invention we don't need to adhere to much now, apart from the basic dos and don'ts, of which you don't need a religion to understand and appreciate.

    I think that image was designed to discredit Flat Earthers, although I'm not sure how many of them are bright enough to realise that! It doesn't explain how the sun and moon are seen to move below the horizon, or how day length changes over seasons and hemispheres, or lunar or solar eclipses, or by what mechanism these objects are propelled, or how measurement parallax measurements or EME transmissions show the moon to be about 250,000 miles away, or the phases of the moon, or why the moon appears upside-down in the southern hemisphere, or the crescent phases of Venus, or the solar transits of Venus and Mercury... Pointless to bring such trivial matters up - again I know - but anyway...
  12. Thank you Grumpy. That was a very helpful post - but it could have been explained before by a mod, rather than all the 'why' questions. Anyway, probably time to let the matter drop - in the great scheme of things it might be a 'nice to have', but it's not that important.
  13. For the very simple reason that anyone can just whizz up to the the referenced numbered post and read it. It helps find stuff quickly in long threads. It's not a completely bizarre facility to be requested on a forum. It is used in other forums. The old DI forum had it. I'm not the only person to think it's a good idea. Just in case you think there is something sinister about my request, I have no hidden agenda. Is it such an unreasonable request - if so why?

  15. Seems an outbreak of scepticism (even cynicism) has broken out in this thread. Or is it just common sense? It's a pity the promoters of these devices don't come and provide sound evidence of their efficacy and justify the Ali Express accusations. Is Mr Parkes or one of his helpers around I wonder?
