Well That Worked Out Fine Then

It’s sometimes a worthwhile exercise to restate the obvious.

In that spirit, it’s worth remembering that along with Gordon Brown’s vow, that Cameron said this… BzqVE7HIcAABjH8

THE 2012 BULLSHIT

Been tweeting about this a bit today but want to expand on it a bit here as well.

I have just listened to a lecture about the 2012 non-event by a guy who spends a lot of time trying to debunk the nonsense that is published. It is the third one down if you go here.

I suppose most people just write it off as nonsense but this kind of nonsense has serious consequences. One of those is that some people are making a lot of money selling tickets for some sort of lottery for places to escape the non-disaster.

Again, it is tempting just to think they are idiots but though they might be it is worth thinking about the content of some of these emails which he quoted…

“I’m a mother of 26. The last few weeks I have been losing sleep over this Doomsday issue. I frankly think it is sick, I don’t want to lose my children to some awful disaster”.

“I am a young woman from Denmark, mother of one child [with] another one coming. Yesterday I was considering killing myself, my baby in my stomach and my beloved 2 year old before Dec 12th [2012] for fear of having to witness the Earth’s destruction”.

“I am in the 8th grade and I am considering suicide right now. I am scared to tears. I don’t want to go to school anymore. I don’t want to spend time with my family. I believe that I deserve an explanation. A man on TV said that if government officials spoke up they would be killed”.

“I’m so scared, my only friend is my little dog. When should I put her to sleep so she won’t suffer when the earth is destroyed.”

Please challenge the 2012 nonsense every time you hear it. Scared people lash out and do horrible things.

If you follow  the link near the start of this this article the lecture will give you the information you need to debunk the major myths about this non-event. There are useful links below too….

HOW TO MAKE ASTROLOGY INTERESTING

I recently watched a documentary that said ancient Chinese astrologers were often executed if they got it wrong.

Can you see where I am going with this already? Clever you. Or maybe you can predict the future?

Anyway, why not get a whole heap of them on to make their predictions and when they turn out to be nothing more than bullshit, which is an eventuality I am sure we can safely predict, punitive measures are applied.

Not only would this make for some good payback for all their nonsense but it would also lead to a subsequent reduction in the number of people claiming to have paranormal powers as most not many people would be willing to be ritually humiliated in this way.

It is a win-win situation.

 

PODCAST TWO

In this one I speak with Professor David Miller of the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.

David Miller is the author/co-author/editor of several books including “A Century of Spin: How Public Relations Became the cutting Edge of Corporate Power” and “TELL ME LIES. Propaganda and Media Distortion in the Attack on Iraq.” He is also the co-founder of http://www.spinwatch.org and http://www.spinprofiles.org. He occasionally appears on the BBC too,  including this rather amusing one from Newsnight.

In fact, in this podcast we discuss the BBC, it’s history and origins, how it has been controlled and manipulated by governments and how all this fits into the wider media context.

I hope the production is a little better on this one than the last.
