There are no ghosts, no gods, no telekenesis or psychic healing. Homeopathy is a scam, you generally won't get something for nothing and, over the long term, results tend to regress to the mean average. Diana was killed in an accident when her chauffeur crashed into a wall and the WTC was destroyed when some Arabs crashed some planes into them.


So in a nutshell, am I right in thinking that the only things that are real are what we can see or touch, and that we are to believe what our governments tell us as they are benign and only make bumbling mistakes that were accidental (unless we live in the middle east, where of course our governments are evil)? This is a very common world view where I'm from.

I agree that there are no ghosts, only demons and the other ones who are nicer. These demons live up to 3000 years. This claim is just as outlandish as the two sentences I quoted...but truer.

I know not of this telekenesis, homeopathy or psychic healing of which you speak so I'm not associating my point with them. They sound too new agey for my tastes.

Since every action is the result of a previous action and the cause of one or many reactions; it's possible that someone could predict the future correctly or conceivably know of past actions that they were not present for if they could follow accurately the myriad action-consequences that lead to said action.

In reality that's pretty difficult though.

may I add this is not a defense of fraudulent psychics (all psychics are fraudulent).

That sound like an extract from an Isaac Asimov nover where the main character used physycohistory to predict the future. It was dependant though on knowing the history and every event and every possibility of thousands of planets.

It's my form of pre-determinism and would be better seen as Dirk Gently like from Sci-Fi.

Yes could be I suppose. I think I still have a Dirk Gently book to finish. Got a two in one book. First was OK. Struggling with the second one. Someone blew exploded at an Airport.

Life would be so boring without a conspiracy theory or two. It gives the theorist something to live for when they find a new story. I can just imagine the smile on their tiny faces as they relate their findings to an unenlightened world, :P

lol

I don't think you should be in that kind of spirit if you look at the Maddie case in the way its probably turned out, considering the world today

Maddie has probably been kidnapped, transported to the Middle East, Asia, America, drugged, brainwashed, raped and screwed by hundreds of dirty little rich people and either thrown in the trash when she hit puberty or kept as some sick kind of pet.

I think there's people out there who know what has happened, all the publicly compared to other cases that are similar just haven't been reported and documented anywhere near as much as this one.

There are some sick f***s out there, and they reach all the way to the top

I wasn't referring to that case specifically although it is a strange one. Like you said there must be somebody who knows something. I cannot see that she wondered off to road hit and body taken away. Whoever did that would have to be callous individual and a normal person would not have been able to keep it a secret. Kidnapping is the only thing I can think of. There must have been someone on the site who had contacts and were waiting for this situation. Maybe contacts in the local villain population. If there were some 'Mafia' types they could hamper investigations even have evidence removed or destroyed. Maybe a cleaner gardener or workmen tipped them off that a young child was being left alone at night.
They did say at the beginning the local police were not great at detecting which is why they brought in British investigates but by that time the scene may have changed and no conclusive evidence was found.

Ahhh, that's reminded me of something I've wanted to ask for a while and always forget (cos usually I think of it when reading a book in bed), but does anyone else do... this: when reading a book which has been famously dramatised on TV or as a film, when you read the dialogue of the main characters, is it in the voice of the person most famous for playing that character? IE, when reading Sherlock Holmes do you "hear" Basil Rathbone's voice in your head? Or is that just me?

Incidentally, it doesn't happen if I read the book first and have already created the characters after my own imagination.

yeah good point :thumbup: I've often wondered about this too

I think I do hear certain voices that I associate with a particular role .
I'm not sure who's voice I hear at other times , such as reading a newspaper though.

When I'm reading a novel I sometimes put a famous person /actor's face to the character too .

Me too. Then, when it gets made into a film and it isn't that person, I get quite miffed!

What about when reading other people's posts?

Do you put on an inner voice for different posters?

You always have a sexy gallic twang when I read your posts, where as Zingari sounds like the drunk old guy from the fast show.

Really, cos I'm not French. I would imagine that those who have listened to my (now sadly defunct, but soon to be revived) radio show might possibly read them in my own voice (weirdly, I read my own posts in my own voice) as well as the few people on here who know me in real life.

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it.

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be!

We all know things are bad -- worse than bad -- they're crazy.
