The whole point of the scientific method is to provide a method whereby confirmation bias can be bypassed and the truth be constantly approximated more closely.

Unfortunately, the current peer review process accomplishes almost exactly the opposite.

Cheers!

The ONLY reason that the "anti-GW" side of the equation has gotten any exposure at all has been due to the availability of the internet and the ability to bypass the people who have foresaken their guardianship, and become "gatekeepers" instead. Or perhaps the informational equivalent of "Maxwell's demon".

FREEPMAIL COMING, PLEASE ANSWER.

Absolutely, indeed.

As does, sadly, tenure.

Thanks for your kind reply.

Looks like my prediction that the END TIMES will be demonstrating even the nature of reality turning inside out and upside down . . . is really going to be truer than even I thought.

Interesting.

For those who haven’t watched the video, yet, you can pretty much skip the first half—it’s mostly documenting how such substances were documented to have been known about in several ancient cultures.

I did a google search on monatomic gold. Wow. It could even be a cia black ops, ufo, reptilian, mind control, alchemy, even psyc op scam, FBI misinformation or what ever. No way to vett it out. Of interest to you Quix is a spiritualist native American shaman or some such said to beware of it. The speaker in the video died about a year ago.

Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements ORMUS. Farmer David Hudson of Phoenix AZ started this alchemy in the 70’s? Is this just a mind game by the PTB? No google search makes any sense. Now I am finding connections to Free Energy and 911? even ties to the illuminati and Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone.

It was above average interesting to me.

However, I think folks need to be quite wary and prayerful about any association with such stuff.

How much is occultish?

Where is the truth vs disinformation?

etc. etc.

No worries Quix, I am fine in Jesus' arms. The coming end time deception is going to be even bigger than we can imagine. I think I will step back on this one for a while and let it percolate.

BTW, I just started reading Dr Judy Wood's book. This should keep me occupied for a while.

Exodus 32:20 New International Version (NIV) 20 And he took the calf the people had made and burned it in the fire; then he ground it to powder, scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it.

Moses grinding the golden calf into powder is interesting. This was one of those verses I read without considering in the past. How does Gold become powder?

Peer review, tenure, and most of all, GOVERNMENT GRANTS.

Those in charge of the granting process have probably long ago been infiltrated by communists - it’s their way. Find the place where the fewest people can have to most impact, and get your people in those positions.

INDEED.

I’d think making a pure gold powder would be very tricky given gold’s malleability. Must be some method worked out that’s effective. I don’t know what freezing it would do to aid the process.

You are certainly right about tenure etc.

Thx for your kind replies.

Please email me.
